From the fashionable Mediterranean coast to the marble mountains of the Apuans, the chestnut forests of the Apennines, the Natural parks with lakes, canyons, thermal springs and grottoes, the luxuriant gardens of the Renaissance villas, olive groves and vines, the surrounding area of Lucca is probably the best area to be in Tuscany from May to September.
Lucca: ‘the new place to visit in Italy’ according to the New York Times, the town that contains the largest number of churches in Italy and offers a glimpse on the best of the Tuscan culture, with its wealthy, cultured inhabitants and its classical music tradition – Puccini, just to name one, is from this area: the area surrounding is an extremely watery area, with the result of a verdant countryside and lashing nature.
Considered few years ago the off-the-beaten-track location of the region has today become a centre of attention, with its contemporary art galleries in medieval towns (Barga) and dramatic locations (Orrido di Botri).
Home to the ‘devil’s bridge’ (ponte del diavolo) and Capannori, the area of the camelie flowers, this very wide surrounding area is also famous for its very elegant noble villas, basking in the countryside among olive groves and vineyards: they were not only the summer residences of the noble families but were also representative of a certain status as can be seen from their beautiful architecture and lavish interior décor. Travellers that choose the surroundings of Lucca have the opportunity to visit Pisa, the city of the leaning tower, in an average thirty minutes drive.
Blessed with beauty, wine and an unparalleled artistic legacy, Tuscany’s a region that largely lives up to its fame. Its fabled rolling landscape has long been considered the embodiment of rural chic, a favourite of foodies and wine lovers, while its cities harbour a significant slice of the world’s Renaissance art. Florence in itself, boasts more world-class art than many entire Countries.
Famous for its hills outlined by endless rows of cypress trees, majestic castles, thermal spa towns, tiny medieval villages surrounded by olive groves, this is an idyllic region that also features gorgeous emerald green seaside as well as dramatic mountains, all in a very concentrated space. From the fashionable Mediterranean coast to the marble mountains of Carrara, often both visible from one same position, the chestnut forests of the Apennines, the Natural parks with lakes, canyons, thermal springs and grottoes, the luxuriant gardens of the Renaissance villas, olive groves and vines, Tuscany is a fantastic place to visit all year round.
This exclusive hamlet is an elegant and exclusive Tuscan retreat immersed in splendid parkland of ornamental ponds and antique fountains, time-forgotten courtyards and lemon scented Italian gardens. The twelve individually styled bedrooms, for up to twenty four guests, are a reflection of gracious living blended discreetly with the typical Tuscan hamlet style of wood beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and warm, welcoming colours.
Reception rooms include a wine library with private collection of Tuscan wines, a card and billiard room, a domed music room with log fireplace, grand banquet room, a large Tuscan kitchen, several comfortable lounges as well as a workout room. With original features and picturesque views over hills and olive groves, this is a perfect place for the gathering of family and friends where days are timeless and memorable.
