Perched above the olive grove with a spectacular view of the 13th century Castello d'Aguila and with comfortable seating, the pool house is the perfect place for the children to play in the shade or for the grown ups to have cocktails later in the day as the sun goes down - a favourite place for relaxing and having fun.

The outdoor kitchen boasts a spectacular wood-fired pizza oven, an open grill, a gas BBQ, a sink, and plenty of marble workspace for preparation and serving of food. Outdoor dining furniture is elegant and comfortable. There is nothing better than sitting under the shady, wisteria-strewn pergola enjoying good food and company.** Please note that the pool is not fenced. Children and non-swimmers must be supervised at all times.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Casa Lucia is situated in northern Tuscany approximately ninety minutes drive north of Pisa Airport and near the town of Aulla in the Province of Massa-Carrara.

Casa Lucia is within easy access of major towns, cities, and attractions, such as Florence, Lucca, and Sarzana, and numerous medieval villages such as Fivizzano, Fosdinovo, and Equi Terme.

Coastal attractions include the beach resorts of Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi, Lerici, and the Gulf of Poets; the spectacular world heritage site of Le Cinque Terre; and the sophisticated towns of Santa Margarita and Portofino on the Italian Riviera.

Casa Lucia Location Facts:
* Region: Tuscany
* Province: Massa-Carrara
* Nearby Cities of Interest: Sarzana, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Genoa, Parma
* Nearby Attractions: Cinque Terre, Gulf of Poets, Italian Riviera, Portofino, Garfagnana

Fivizzano

The town of Fivizzano, just fifteen minutes away from Casa Lucia over the hill is nestled in valley that extends from the Appenines to the Apuan Alps.

Historically, Fivizzano has always been an important centre of the Lunigiana region and the castles, churches, and noble palaces are testament to its long and distinguished history.

Fivizzano gave itself to the Medici family in the fifteenth century. The walls of Fivizzano were erected by order of Cosimo de Medici in 1540, and the baroque font of the main square was constructed for Cosimo III in 1683. Every summer in July, Fivizzano is home to a medieval archery festival, “Disfida degli arceri di terra e di corte”, a colourful and charming event at which people dress in medieval clothes, stallholders cook and sell all types of traditional foods, and music fills the warm summer air.

Fivizzano has many amenities, including a supermarket, bakery, fishmonger, butcher, gas station, post office, banks, pharmacy, and many restaurants and coffee bars.

Beyond the walls of Fivizzano lies the village of Verrucola and its spectacular castle. Nearby are the Romanesque church of Saint Paul of Vendaso and the village of Soliera with the sanctuary of the Madonna of the Necks, the village of Sassalbo, and the Botanical Garden of the Frignoli.

About 30 to 40 minutes drive from Fivizzano are many other beautiful medieval towns, such as Pontremoli, Villefranca in Lunigiana, Cassola, Bagnone, and Sarzana.
