The Tuscany region

This location is without doubt an unspoilt and typically Tuscany with a lovely climate.

Warm sunny Spring days make a regular appearance from as early as March sending the area into full bloom with blossom on the trees and poppies by the roadside. The summers are hot and relaxing with inviting beaches and shaded pine forests. Autumn's sunny days are an array of colours and aromas with bursting vines and olive groves awaiting harvest time. The winter months are colder, time to enjoy the quiet villages filled with the cozy aroma of wood burning on the open fires, wrap up warm for a stroll on the beach or soak away your worries in the nearby hot springs of Casiana Terme... Mother Nature's Jacuzzi!

The area is full of Roman and Etruscan ruins, as well as beautiful medieval and Renaissance cities, with countless churches, galleries, museums to explore, making it an all year round destination. Pisa 32km, Lucca 50km, Florence 80km, Livorno 28km, Volterra 50km, San Gimignano 70km. Siena 95km.

The hill top villages offer uncrowded tourist interest and good food such as Chiani, Casciano terme, Bolgheri famous for its wine.

Nearby village of Pomaia you find one of the most important Centres for Tibetan Buddhism 'Istituto Lhama Tzong Khapa' with large variety of courses. For lovers of Opera, this area is home to the world famous tenor, Andrea Bocelli, who gives a local concert every July at the open air Teatro del Silenzio, On a middle Sunday in July at Casole d'Elsa – is a mini palio - same ceremonies and horse race, but more intimate than the better known one at Siena. Outside theatre and musical festivals in June/July in Lucca. Racing and many festivals in the villages.

Santa Luce

The village is a working village with many of the locals being farmers. extremely friendly and always keen to help. Weekly vans come round selling local produce however this is a well stocked village shop.

Added bonus of having a restaurant/Pizza a few steps away means you can enjoy a glass of Vino and walk home. Summer months you can eat outside with a lovely view. local bar sells ice cream and welcomes all visitors.

Strawberry festival in the Village in May, Cinema in September. with village nearby having their own festivals, each month there is something new to see and happening. Music festival in Lucca the months of June, July and August.

"Great Location, easy drive to Florence, Luca, Sienna as well as small medieval villages and beaches within 30 mins!!!!!!"

Had a great week, the apartment is in a small friendly village with a couple of little shops and a restaurant. Only trouble was trying to fit everything in a week!!! Especially enjoyed all the smaller medieval villages in the hill top’s as well as the more tourist places like Voltera, San Gimgano and Lucca which needs a full day to walk around the walled city or hire bikes which is much easier ;). You can also enjoy more lazily days out like visiting Casciana Terma with natural spring baths or spending the day on the beach at Vada. One last thing is that you have a small garden with a table that is quite private to eat al fresco and the Pool is usually quiet as all the Italians prefer to go to the beach!

We would love to have you back, why not try another season and enjoy the different smells and flowers!
