From Casa del Falcetto as far as you can see in all directions the 360 degree National Park views are special and stunning. There is easy access and plenty of parking with no precipitous edges to worry about.
Whether from the lounge, poolside, or juliette balconies a feature of the two main bedrooms, you can see the small local farm, the pretty little church and in the distance from the eagles eyrie you could say, are the hillside fortress villages of Castiglioncello and Pugliano, where at lunch time the local bar serves some of the finest pasta in the area! At Reusa (3 miles) lies restaurant Spino Fioretti where Monday to Friday a superb lunch is just Euro 12 incl water and wine. Ask for 'Pranzo del lavoro'.
Within a National Park the whole area is totally unspoilt, and it is sometimes hard to believe that you are not living in a different age. You may drive the twenty minutes or so across to Fivizzano, the main town in the Commune, have a coffee at Elviros, freely exchange your books, and maybe only see one or two cars. Restaurants are numerous and have a rustic charming quality, and the ever friendly Italians always ready with a buona sera or buon appetito.
At the same time we are not isolated. Local amenities, ie bank, PO, supermarket can be found at Casola a five minute drive away. Similar drive time to the little town of Pieve San Lorenzo and with free parking then get the train to the lovely walled renaissance city of Lucca (one hour and about Euro 6), or just about anywhere else from Rome to Milan. Alternatively a one hour drive will take you down to the coastal beaches or Portovenere and the heart of the World heritage site of Cinque Terre with its little Cornish type coves and precipitous cliffs plunging to the sea. Another twenty minutes drive would have you in Ravello, Viareggio or inland to Parma the home of parmegiano cheese, or back down the coast to Florence!!
