A little about the area

Situated in the depths of the countryside yet just 20 mins from Lucca, this really is the ideal location. Up in the hills set in beautiful gardens, with tuscan cypress trees, lots of flowers and a feeling of pure peace....

 

Local facilities can be found in Ponte a Moriano which is 3/4km away where there are restaurants and shopping, and the most photographed Bridge in Tuscany! For days when you don't want to go out at all, and don't feel like cooking or BBQing the owners will cook for you on request!

 

For days out, there is of course Lucca which is only a 20 minute drive and is somewhere one can visit many times to soak up the atmosphere.

This fully walled mediaeval City has been voted the best City in Italy on more than one occasion, and has a relaxed feel... One can meander along or cycle along the ample walls, stopping off for a rest or a sleep  in the parks on the wall and there are even some cafes/restaurants on the wall too!

Inside the walls there are 99 churches, various towers to climb, lots of piazzas for icecreams or people watching, regular outdoor music, designer shops, and of course, being the birthplace of Puccini, opera! There is a recital every evening.

Come in July and book for the Summer Festival - a fortnight of concerts from well known names -there has been Elton John, Simply Red, The Killers, Paolo Nutini, Ricky Martin (for a party!), The Rolling Stones, Robbie Willians, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, to name but a few... Most concerts take place in the Piazza Napoleone - an intimate and unique outdoor venue.

 

Other places to visit:

  • Pisa with its tower - 45 mins
  • Versilia coast - 45 mins
  • Torre del lago with its outdoor performances beside the lake - 45 mins
  • Pietrasanta - 50 mins
  • Spa town of Montecatini - 45 mins
  • Pistoia - also often with outdoor concerts at its Blues venues - less than an hour.
  • Florence - 90 mins
  • Siena - 2 hrs
  • The Hills of the beautiful and rugged Garfagnana - 30 to 40 mins - here there is the wonderful town of Barga to visit, the Wind Caves, The fortress of Verrucole, the National Park of Orrechiella, and a host of other gems too.

One holiday is not enough!

Great house in a dreamlike setting

5 stars

In reality, Casa Dania is at least as beautiful as it is in the photos. We didn't miss anything and the two owners made our stay perfect with little touches. The pool is very large, so that 5 teenagers can romp and chill out there. The proximity to Lucca is also an advantage, in 10-15 minutes you are in the city, you can park there for free and eat delicious food.
