The house is situated in a sunny and tranquil position in a small Medieval village in Northern Tuscany. The village is in an area affectionately known as ‘Cinque Stella’, (the five stars) meaning the five villages in these hills. The village has one shop which sells most things that you are likely to require. There is little else in the village apart from fantastic views, an abundance of fresh air, a beautiful climate and an environment so peaceful that you have no option but to relax and unwind.

There are however supermarkets, restaurants and bars in the nearby town of Bagni di Lucca, which is only ten minutes drive.

Of all the regions in Tuscany, this one offers something for everyone. The historic towns are rich in art, architecture and music festivals, while many sporting activities can be enjoyed along the coast or in the mountains. The landscape too, is marked by a vast range of features from marble quarries to market gardens, and from mountain ranges and nature reserves to beaches.

The village is a great base for exploring the surrounding hills cloaked in chestnut woods giving a variety of beautiful walks. There is parking in the piazza below the house. There is approximately a three minute walk from the car park up to the house.
