Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Lucca is a small town and province in the north east of Tuscany which is rich in marvelous scenery, many interesting things to do and places to see. It is a very mild climate and we don't have much winter. I think it snows only once a hyear and then lasts only for a few days.

The old town is surrounded by magnificent walls alog which you can walk right round looking down into the antique part of town with it's one hundred churches. The walls were built to keep out invaders and where he moat used to be is a lovely large grassed area where people take their dogs for a run and children 'play games. It is one of the quaintests towns I have ever seen and whenever I go I ffind something new.It is also very near to all other places of interest in Tuscany having good access to the motorway rom where we each Florence in oless than one hour

Piana di Lucca

The provine of Lucca is full of interesting things for all ages and tastes. If you love the sea there is the famous Versilian coast with fabulous sandy beaches and all amenities where the children love playing in the sand and they provide all kinds of entertainment. You can pass a whole day on the beach where they have bars,restuarants swings, swimming pools changing facilites, showers etc, then in the evening there is shopping in numerous gorgeous boutiques all along the sea front and fantastic restuarants, night clubs, variety shows, the lot.

But, if you prefer to tour the hinterland there are special tours set out to show you the numerous olive oil estate and vinryards where you taste the wine and olive oil with a small snack and then there are the magnificent antique villas, something to be seen to be believed. Drive a bit further north into the Garfagnana mountainous area and you will find marvelous little hilltop villages to explore, special adventure parks for the youing and energetic, there is a great zoo at Pistoia,. Nearer to home we have tennis courts at a stones throw and horse riding in the woods of the Compitese hills wher, playgrounds for the little ones, lovely boutiques and many antique shopshere is now a Camelia show, the whole village is open to the public showing everyones beautiful camelias.

There are variuos festivals throughout the year, the main one being the Lucca Summer festival in July, various flower shows, Santa Zita at the end of April inside the walls in the amphtheatre. There are so many good restuarants around that it would mbe impossible to name them all.

You could try a different one every evening or miuch better have a wonderful bbq in the garden overlooking the beautiful view of Lucca with all lights shining, wonderful sight in the evening.There is a take away pizza bar just down the road from us and their pizzas are really good. I the town of Luicca there aremuseums and art galleries .
