A little about the area:

Conveniently situated on the outskirts of the small mountain village of Filicaia, approx 1 hour North of Lucca.

The villa is situated in wonderful mature gardens,and the views from the house are absolutely beautiful, with the garden boasting views over the Serchio Valley, which itself is nestled between the Apennine, and Apuane mountain ranges.

In Filicaia itself there are 2 bars, one of which serves pizza at weekends, a small food shop, a bank and a post office.

Less than a 10 minute drive away is the local historic market town of Castelnuovo, with its various bars & restaurants, supermarkets and well-known Thursday morning market.
For days when one wishes to explore further afield, the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca is 50 mins/1 hour away. Only a 30 minute drive is the popular mediaeval town of Barga, with its cobbled streets, wealth of restaurants, Cathedral, beautiful architecture, regular music festivals and great views!

Grotta del Vento, the wind caves is a 40 minute drive, and is worth a day out.

Pisa, for exploring the tower and of course for the airport is a  90 minute drive,  with Florence circa 2 hrs.

More locally, there are plenty of opportunities to explore local towns, hill top villages, to walk and picnic, ride horses, fish, zip wire through the trees, visit the local fortress or the National Parks, swim in the river, or simply relax.

A good choice for a country/village stay, with some facilities within walking distance!
