Check In Out:
Barbara at RentVillas was great and everything went very smoothly.
Within a little hamlet, this gracious Tuscan retreat is tucked away in a beautiful area with lovely villas and a charming village ��� just south of the town of Lucca. The villa is within reach of many of the famous Tuscan hill towns, most within an hour's drive away. The Cinque Terre is about an hour and a half away. Lucca is worth enjoying simply for its medieval charm, but there are also a number of interesting sights to visit. The Duomo di San Martino and the Church of San Michele in Foro are both gorgeous examples of period architecture, while the Casa di Puccini, where the composer was born, has been transformed into a small museum in his honor. You can also climb the 130-foot Torre Guinigi, but on the other hand viewing the tree-topped tower from below might be just as enjoyable… and a lot less work! Plus there are plenty of shops and restaurants for your enjoyment. There are also restaurants within the small hamlet. Florence: 55 km Forte dei Marmi (beaches): 30 km Pisa: 25 km Pietrasanta: 20 km Golf courses (Montecatini or Versilia): 30 minutes Lucca: 5 km
