Festivals and Seasonal Events in Tuscany:

There are many events all year round throughout Tuscany, but many are concentrated during the summer.

Many 'sagre', or festivals dedicated around a particular local product, start in early summer and continue on through the autumn when local specialties (truffles, wine, olive oil, marroni chestnuts) come into season.

In Versilia you will find a lot of sagre organised by the various 'contrade' which give life to the Palio dei Micci (1st Sunday of May). They offer typical dishes (tordelli and panzanelle) in the evenings of July, August and mid September.

If you are coming to Tuscany during other periods of the year, don't worry as there is always something to see or do (or eat!) then as well.

For specific events, it is best to contact the local tourism office.

Please, contact the owners for furhter details:.They will be glad to answer to all your questions.

About Gemma Ida Benedetti

Gemma, a teacher, and Andrea, an antiquarian, will welcome you! They are always happy to offer guidance to plan your visits, to let you have fantastic memories of your holiday in Versilia.

Gemma Ida Benedetti purchased this chateau / country house in 1973

Why Gemma Ida Benedetti chose Lucca Area

The house was bought in 1973 by Gemma's parents: At that time they lived in Rome and wanted to have their own house in Versilia for their holidays. Back to Tuscany, her parents settled in Forte dei Marmi and Antico Borgo became Gemma and Andrea's house after their marriage.

They decided to rent their house to share this pleasant place with people who love travelling and discovering new traditions and habits.

According to the owners' experience, spending a holiday in a flat means to 'feel themselves at home', even if far from home!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The main characteristic of this farmhouse is lying very close to everything, but being secluded and sorrounded by huge olive-groves at 360°, with a stunning view of the Apuan Alps!

Great Place for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse is a wonderful place to stay in Tuscany. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very clean. The outside space is very nice too. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful within easy reach of the beach, mountains, restaurants, and attractions such as Lucca, Pisa, and Cinque Terre. We had a great vacation here in July and would return if given the opportunity.

Wundervoll!

  • 5 of 5

Die schöne Wohnung hat 2 Schlafzimmer, eines mit Doppel- und eines mit zwei getrennten Betten. In der gut and typisch eingerichtet Küche mangelt es an nichts. Die Wohnung ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und sauber. Der Garten (3000qm) ist sehr ordentlich und bietet reichlich Schatten, was bei sommerlichen Temperaturen sehr angenehm ist. Die Vermieter, Gemma und Andrea, wohnen mit auf dem Gelände, sie sind wirklich sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sie haben uns viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten aufgezeigt, die in unserem Reiseführer nicht erwähnt wurden. Wir saßen einige Abende mit ihnen zusammen, haben gegessen getrunken und viel gelacht. Außer Italienisch wird Deutsch, Englisch und Französisch gesprochen.

Pietrasanta ist wunderschön : eine Stadt voller Kunst und mit sehr bunter Atmosphare. Pisa und Lucca (sehenswert!) sind nah, Florenz 1 Stunde weg. Le Cinque Terre! Siena! Alles atemberaubend! Das Meer? Super! Die Alpen? Auch!

Fazit: ein wirklich toller Urlaub!

Wunderschönes Apartment mit Blick auf die Berge

  • 5 of 5

Es ist ein liebevoll eingerichtetes Apartment mit einem wunderschönen Garten (Blick auf die Berge). Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit.

Das Haus liegt in einem kleinen Ort, etwas fernab vom Trubel von Forte dei Marmi. Der Strand ist ca. 3-4 km entfernt und auch problemlos zu finden.

Die Anlage ist super familienfreundlich und man kann einiges in der Ungebung unternehmen!

Il fascino di ieri con tutte le comodità di oggi!

  • 5 of 5

La casa colonica Antico Borgo è veramente bella, si respira il passato, ma

con tutte le comodità del presente. E’ circondata da oliveti e il grande

giardino, con vista sulle Alpi Apuane, è attrezzato di tutto il necessario

per godere della tranquillità del luogo, anche se a pochi minuti da tutti i

servizi e luoghi di intrattenimento e cultura delle Versilia. E’ arredata

con buon gusto, stile ed originalità, pur nel rispetto delle antiche origini

del casale..Abbiamo trovato il nostro appartamento molto pulito, accogliente

e rilassante: ci siamo subito sentiti “a casa”!

Molto socievoli i proprietari, Gemma ed Andrea, che ci hanno accolti con

grande affabilità, pronti a fornirci preziose informazioni sul luogo e a

trascorrere con noi piacevoli momenti, davanti a una tazza di caffè e una

torta fatta in casa.

Antico Borgo è la base ideale per chi ama il mare, la montagna e le città d’arte

toscane (Lucca, Pisa, Firenze, Volterra, Siena, San Gimignano sono

facilmente raggiungibili). A 5 minuti dal casale, Pietrasanta, che merita

più di una visita serale: la Piazza del Duomo si anima di bella gente e Sant’Agostino diventa l’ideale location per concerti e mostre. Non va dimenticata un’escursione alle Cinque Terre, magari in battello!.

Abbiamo trascorso una fantastica vacanza in questo angolo di Toscana e

sicuramente torneremo all’Antico Borgo, per continuare a scoprire le

bellezze della zona o semplicemente per rilassarci nel verde che circonda

questo antico casale.

Owner's Response: Un grazie di cuore per le belle parole!! E grazie ancora per aver scelto l'Antico Borgo come luogo per le vostre vacanze. Speriamo che abbiate portato con voi bei ricordi, anche dei piacevoli momenti trascorsi assieme sotto il grande patio. Saremo ben lieti di accogliervi nuovamente! Essere ospitali con persone cortesi ed educate come voi, è veramente facile! Ad una prossima volta...:-)

Directions: A12 Genova-Rosignano exit Versilia. After the toll follow Seravezza past two traffic lights and a junction with a roundabout. Continue straight until the next roundabout where you take the first right towards Seravezza. Continue for approx. 2 km until you reach the second traffic light. Turn right (via L.Salvatori), then take the third street on the left ( Via Borgo Terrinchesi). After approx. 30 meters turn left into a dirt road, in front of you and you will find 'Antico Borgo'.

Coming from Florence or Pisa, exit Versilia. After the toll, follow the same above directions.
