The beautiful Villa for rent in Tuscany near Lucca


Casa Ilda is a beautiful villa built at the end of the 18th Century. The Villa nestles in the Apuan Alps in the Garfagnana region North of Lucca, where it enjoys peace and tranquility and commands spectacular views of mountains and the village below. The Villa is located just 12 miles from Lucca, thus combining proximity to the town of Lucca with the peace and beauty of the surrounding countryside. It is the perfect base for people looking for a relaxing holiday in a quiet position.

We spent the vacation there in May 2016. We really enjoyed our time at the villa. The location is beautiful - just in the heart of Apuan Alpes. From Piegaio you can easily travel to Lucca, Pisa and Florence.

About the neighbourhood
Piegaio is an area of wooded hills and winding roads surrounding the valleys of the Serchio and Lima rivers, where many Italians choose to have their holiday properties.

You should however note this isn't Chiantishire, the fashionable, expensive and crowded part of Tuscany, south of Florence, but the quieter, more relaxed and, to our minds, far more interesting area to the north. Pisa and Florence are within easy reach, and skiing at Abetone and sandy beaches are within an hour's drive of the area. The region has excellent walking, friendly locals and many cultural activities. If you have read Eric Newby's 'A Small Place In Italy' which is set towards the northern end of this region, you will already have a good idea of the area.
Getting around
The villages remain mainly unspoilt with small scale farming the principal source of employment. Industry, primarily paper-making, is confined to the bottom of the valleys as only there is it possible to build roads suitable for heavy vehicles.

The northern, more mountainous, part of the region is known as the Garfagnana. This region begins around thirty kilometres north of Lucca. Through this area runs the river Serchio which divides two mountain ranges, the Apennines, the range that runs almost the entire length of Italy, and the Apuan Alps, the smaller coastal range well known for its marble. From this area the Serchio runs south eventually entering the Mediterranean Sea south of Viareggio.

Some 15 kilometres to the north of Lucca the Serchio is joined by the river Lima, just to the west of the spa town of Bagni di Lucca.
