There is a large solar heated pool (rare to find) which has the added benefit of a remote controlled cover to keep out those insects, keep in the heat, and most importantly provide safety for family groups. The pool has internal steps for relaxing maybe with a book and a drink!

The fully enclosed and gated garden surrounds the house and comprises of 12M x 6M pool plus sunbathing area, various eating out areas, BBQ, outdoor wood oven, children's swing and wooden play house.

The house is within easy walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants, river for fishing and playing, and station for easy exploring.

A little about location:

Villa Piazza is situated in the midst of the village of Piazza al Serchio which itself has various traditional shops, supermarket, small Tuesday morning market, bars and restaurants, banks, station for easy exploring and beautiful river for trout fishing and playing.
The train station has direct trains to Lucca, Pisa and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, and it is possible to visit Florence and the seaside with one change, and the cinque terre with two.
The villa is well located for exploring the local market town of Castelnuovo which is a 20 minute drive, the gorgeous and popular mediaeval town of Barga which is a 35 minute drive and the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca which is say 1 hour and 10 minutes away. Pisa, with its leaning tower is a 90 minute drive, and one can visit Florence in 2 hours. The famous Wind Caves are a 45 minute drive.

Closer to home there are plenty of little historic villages to visit, many of which have local festas in the summer. There are also the lakes of Gramalazzo, Vagli (with its hidden village submerged by the water) and Pontecosi, and some guests love to swim in the river.
The villa is also ideally located for visiting the local Fortress at Verrucole which is a good afternoon out, with stunning views and some interactive activities for the children. Also close by is the Buffardello tree climbing and zip wire park (ideal for both adults and children of all ages with a variety of runs) where one can take a picnic and spend the entire day in the welcome shade of the forest.

The real beauty of this area is the dramatic mountain scenery, and the hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, endless picnicking opportunities, and the wonder of a non touristy holiday ......

Reviews

Very relaxing vacation

5 stars

The house is very beautiful, spacious and stylish. All rooms are large and cozy. The garden and pool were tended daily. The photos correspond to reality. We were warmly welcomed by Rita and Lorraine, with sparkling wine and freshly baked cake and were pampered with fresh pasta, sweet pastries and hospitality over the course of the 2 weeks! The defective dishwasher was replaced very quickly. Both the adults and the children felt very comfortable in this house!
