You can find Casa Pettirosso in the quiet little village of San Macario in Piano, just 6 km from the centre of Lucca. In just twenty minutes you can be on the beautiful Viareggio shoreline and only fifty minutes by car will be sufficient to get to Florence. The village lies in the bosom of fertile hills famous for their precious vineyards and olive groves that produce olive oil with a strong and sharp flavour.
Casa Pettirosso is surrounded by a wide park of tall pine trees and shady oaks providing an ideal space for children to run and play safely.
Beyond the wood you can visit the Bigongiari farmyard, where it is possible to buy home-made cheese, meat and honey.
Eating : This is everyone's main concern , so within walking distance from the property there is a very good Osteria - Alimentari called 'Il Ciancino', in front of it there is a wood oven Pizzeria and just after this there's a really good ice cream shop. Also , crossing the Bigongiari farm fields, you can easily get to the 'La Salute ' bar for a good morning breakfast or an evening 'aperitivo' . In Farneta , again crossing the fields on the other side where the bar is , there is the Restaurant- Pizzeria 'Mangiafoco'.
However , going towards Lucca there is the Coop Supermarket and the Lidl on the opposite side.
Tenuta di Forci .: This 'Tenuta di Forci ' is about 4 -5 km away from the property and here it is possible to buy and taste Forci's red and white wine , olive oil and honey .
For those seeking outdoor activities , the area around Bagni di Lucca in the Lima Valley offers some of the best sceneries and it is possible to book soft rafting trips , quad tours , canyoning and zip lined Canyon park . ... Or just swim in the nice fresh pools of the Lima river.
I personally do Mountain Village daily tours on Land Rover discovering this area lost corners . Just enquire for further information .

Very nice house!
We had a great time in this beautiful located villa. The kids enjoyed the pool a lot. We have stayed in many vacation homes over the years and this was one of the best. Very friendly and relaxed owner too.
Détente et sérénité.
Excellentes vacances au calme. Tout était conforme à l'annonce. Le propriétaire vraiment adorable et discret. A recommander. Encore merci pour tout.
Our family (4 adults and 2 young children) stayed for 7 wonderful days and nights this past June and we absolutely loved every minute of it. More than anything, this villa and great location give the visitor a real Tuscan/Italian experience, and at the very same time provides all of the comforts of a spacious home base with an inviting pool and beautiful garden. Giovanni and his family were welcoming and helpful.
So much of Italy is fast paced, which is what made this home the perfect place for us to finish our holiday. It is centrally located to many sights and was wonderful to come home to after a hectic tourist packed day. Pretty, Spacious, homely, comfortable,clean felt like our home away from home. Had an amazing time relaxing on the back porch soaking up the sun and the view. Had 4 adults and 3 young children - was plenty of space for all and the children loved exploring the garden. The owners were accomodating and provided highchairs and cots. We would stay here again without hesitation. Thankyou.
perfect spot to explore Northern Tuscany
Great location as only 10mins drive outside Lucca, and a 10 minute walk to the village which had great bakery, gelateria and pizzeria, but still very quiet and not overlooked with large garden and pool. Other villas we looked at were further in the hills but for sightseeing, they would have been too isolated, and too far to the motorway. There's also a working farm five mins walk away which also has a farm shop so great for kids to visit and also for local produce.
The owner, Giovanni and his brother could not have been better hosts and any questions or queries we had were quickly answered. In all, a great holiday with our 20month old son.
Excellent base in the countryside outside Lucca
We had a wonderful week in this villa. The spacious garden was fabulous for the children, it was a pleasant walk to the nearby village and it was a great base to explore the surrounding area. Hospitality and company of Giovanni, his brother and father was a bonus, as were the firelflies at night and the hoopoes on the lawn! Highly recommended
