The famous thermal baths of Bagni di Lucca, which have been used since the Etruscan and Roman times, is the perfect place to visit for a relaxing and peaceful experience and offers also beauty and wellness treatments.

The nature reserve Orrido di Botri is 15 minutes away and is worth a visit.

Borgo a Mozzano is approximately 20 minutes away by car,(SS12 that leads you to Lucca) and has the famous bridge Ponte della Maddelena, also known as The Devil's Bridge.

The town hosts a beer festival every year during the summer. Three days in April there is an exhibition of Azaleas with beautiful displays of numerous varieties of flowers, the 1st May you will find also a Baccalà Sagra and in October the biggest Halloween festa in Europe.

Also Grotta del Vento is worth a visit, with the underground caves deep in the Garfagnana beautiful surrounding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Patrizia & Monica for the bella casa and hospitality. There is no better and we are grateful. The cottage has castle qualities, yet practical while offering breath-taking scenery, quiet peacefulness, and a relaxing rest like no other. We were 3 sisters with our mom--each with our own bedroom--plenty of space, yet cozy together time. We loved the banquette dining space, our little coffee maker and the walks (runs) in the morning. We saw deer, goats, chickens, and local residents on our adventures. All lovely, Gracia!

Brilliant, would go back again.

  • 4 of 5

We returned from our fabulous holiday at Patrizia and Lorenzo's beautiful Villa, feeling as if we had a really relaxing holiday. Our hosts were more than helpful even when we lost our water supply for a couple of days, but that was soon fixed.

Patrizia invited us to their lovely beach house at Verragio and also joined us for a lovely meal at the little resturant at San Casiarno. The little pool was more than adequate for all of us and we had lots of fun and games with our Grandaughter Lily. The Villa was clean and very tidy and was a nice retreat in the heat. We found that the local Supermartket sold some fantastic wines and very cheap Peroni (which we do not seem to get here!!!) Lucca was about an hour away and we went to one of the concerts featuring Mark Knopler, which was a real treat. Pisa about an 1hr 30mins (if you didn't get lost like us!)

All in all it was a very memorable holiday indeed. Sue,Jon, Johanne, Jimmy and Lily. x

Great property in a tranquil location in Tuscan.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great getaway location. Property was clean an very well maintained. The pool was small but ideal for younger kids and adults too if you just want to cool off. Bagni di Lucca is a 15 min drive away and has a few nice restaurants and supermarkets.

We all enjoyed seeing the many firefly at night and hearing the owls.

There is quaint village called Montefegetesi about 15 mins drive on a windy road, but certainly worth a visit just to see it's isolation and viewst. There were 4 adults and 4 children in our group, and the outdoor space an BBQ was certainly appreciated

Patrizia the owner was very helpful and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A very special stay in a beautiful area!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our children ages 5 and 7 and my parents stayed here for 2 weeks and we wish we had stayed a month. We were so very sad to leave. We woke up every morning to birds singing outside our window. The house is well appointed and was perfect for us. We felt like we were living in Italy without compromising on the little things that help so much when you are traveling (like fresh coffee and cappuccino in the morning).

The House was clean and comfortable and the back-garden is magical. We enjoyed eating outside with the lovely view. The pool is small but lovely and the area is perfect for walking and enjoying nature. The property is well maintained and great for families or groups wanting to break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We still speak about the good home-made meals and pizzas we had at the local trattoria, and the fun when we walked home again, sometimes late at night. Thank you Patrizia and Lorenzo, not this year byt we will surely come back again!!

An amazing stay simply paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Patrizia is simply paradise.

My partner and I spent a blissful week here with my parents. My only regret was that we didn't stay longer.

Patrizia and Lorenzo are such amazing, warm and friendly people. They made our stay the even more special. They were extremely helpful with advice about what to see and do around the area and even dined with us at the local Italian restaurant where the food was simply divine!

Casa Patrizia has been beautifully decorated. As soon as I entered the door I felt instantly at home. All the furnishings and decorations have had a lot of thought and love put in to them.

The property grounds are beautiful, we spent many days and nights enjoying great food and wine in the backyard overlooking the beautiful mountains, fig trees and wildlife.

I was surprised how beautiful Bagni di Lucca was. I have travelled extensively throughout italy and believe this was my favourite spot. The scenery is simply stunning and picturesque. Even though the property is close to shops just down the hill, it feels like you are miles away, with the perfect serenity.

My family still dream about our perfect holiday in Italy today and we will for years to come!! I hope we can come back next year to stay :)

10/10!!!

Very beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

In September 2010 we – four adults, age 40-60 – spent a pleasant week in CASA PATRIZIA. The landlady, a very friendly and open-minded, cosmopolitan person, who speaks fluently English, German, Norwegian and of course, Italian gave us a warm welcome and a good introduction to the house, which was really nice and clean. The Cottage and the Dependence both are in an excellent condition with many appealing details, offering private atmosphere and inviting to a relaxing and quiet holiday. From the cottage you enjoy a picturesque view onto the hilly forests of the Northern Toscana. The CASA is situated in a group of cottages 2 km from the next village, remote of traffic, surrounded by nature.

The area is good for hiking tours in the surrounding highland. It is also worth visiting the typical villages of the LIMA Valley (Lucchio, Limano, Vico Pancellorum...). A one day tour to the fascinating historical city of LUCCA is a real must.

Altogether we felt very comfortable from the very beginning and would love to come back another time.

We love to be in this lovely area and this is the place where we have grown up our children and now my daughter loves to come here with her baby that is 14 mionths old!!.
