  • 5 of 5

"Riolo appeared to be an unspoiled medieval village

up the hills above Bagny di Lucca, with only a few

but heart-warming inhabitants, enough already to fall in love with. But once you''ve seen Lucia''s house, you definitely will be blown off

your feet: next to a small chapel you"ll find a beautifully restored, characteristic Italian cottage, very well equiped, spacious (!)with

stunning views from a covered terrace or from a

lovely front or back-yard.

We loved it from the moment we"ve crossed it''s

tresshold! A great stay!

"We enjoyed our stay in Lucia''s cottage very much. It is a very nice house, tastefully decorated, well equiped, and it has a beautiful view on the valley and surrounding mountains. It lies relatively isolated on the edge of a small and partly abandoned village with traditional houses and small alleys. We seldom saw or heard other people. Outside the village is a square where you park the car. And then you have your daily exercise to walk up to the cottage (a few minutes walk, somewhat uphill). Apart from an occasional (friendly) villager, you may encounter the village dogs and cats (also very friendly ;-).

Braga, Lucca, Pisa, Pistoia, Firenze, and beaches are well within reach. Be aware that Riolo lies in the mountains, and it takes 10 - 15 minutes to drive to Bagni di Lucca. The roads are fine, maybe the last half a mile to Riolo is somewhat narrow as you drive the winding road along chestnut trees. No problem, however.

We were staying there in October. In the evening it became rather cold. We could easily get the place warm with the heaters/radiators. In addition it was fun to use the fire place. For coffee there were two espresso boilers. Anti-mosquito means were provided, but we did not have to use any."

Casa perfetta per vacanza tranquillà.

  • 5 of 5

Questa casa che abbiamo trovato era proprio quello che cercavamo.

Riposo e tranquillita. Una vista bellissima, li uccellini ecc ....

E un luogo ideale per delle vacanze lontane dalle città.

La casa è molto simpatica, pulita e accogliente.

Non c'è niente da raggiungere, solo che se dobbiamo ritornare a Bagni di Lucca, riprenderemo certamente la stessa

  • 5 of 5

Séjour magnifique dans cette maison qui invite au repos, même si l'accès est pittoresque (petite route étroite, puis accès à pied jusqu'à la maison),la magie des lieux opère immédiatement.

Nous recommandons cette location pour tous ceux, qui cherchent l'authenticité, le calme.

About the directions from Pisa Airport to Bagni di Lucca:

(Warning: when you leave the airport you must follow only the green signpost of motorway, you musen't follow blu signpost for Firenze).

As soon as you’ll come out the Pisa Airport you follow green signpost with inscription “AUTOSTRADE”. After few metres follow direction Livorno-Genova (still green signpost). After then you'll take a ticket of motorway and you follow direction Genova-Pisa Nord (to keep the right).

After few km (about ten) you'll find diversion for Firenze-Pisa Nord. You take this diversion and follow to Firenze-Lucca (direction Lucca).

You have to leave the motorway at the exit "Lucca EST". (It's the 2nd Lucca exit).

When you'll be in Lucca you have to follow the signs for Abetone or Bagni di Lucca (the road is SS.12 Abetone - Brennero). You'll go round old big Walls of Lucca.

After you've leave Lucca at few km (about six) you'll find a big crossroads (on the right you can see many yellow banners of "Esselunga" Supermarket), you turn on the left, direction Abetone-Garfagnana.

You’ll follow this street for 20 km (you’ll cross 3 tunnels: after the first tunnel you keep the left and you’ll meet another two tunnels).

In 20-30 minutes you'll arrive to Bagni di Lucca.

The village is 5 minutes from Bagni di Lucca. Here there are lovely public thermal swimming pools (large pool, children’s pool and diving pool), thermal baths, restaurants, bars, shops, banks, supermarkets, post office, market (Weds and Sat), tennis club and historic monuments such as the Casino where roulette was invented in 1837 and where Puccini used to play, the Ponte delle Catene (first suspension bridge in Europe) and villas belonging to previous historical figures such as Elisa Bonaparte. Leaving Bagni di Lucca to north you'll find Barga and Castelnuovo, two lovely Medieval villages.

Don't miss Lucca (far from cottage about 25km) with its old and famous Walls, and its charming center, Pisa (45km) where you can admire Piazza dei Miracoli with the famous Torre; Florence (90km) the most important and beautiful city of Tuscany where you can visit a lot of historic sites and the famous Uffizi Museum. You can reach this cities also by buses or trains from Bagni di Lucca.
