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. There is sufficient space for a large group to relax together, or to provide privacy for those wishing to remain quiet from the group. The house is within easy walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants, river for fishing and playing, and station for easy exploring. Indoor furnishings are rather particular and personal and won't be to everyone's taste, but sense of space and light is very good and the house is well equipped.

This suite is ideal to give a couple privacy from the rest of the group. Outside: Flat fully gated and fenced garden 2 areas for dining al fresco Sunbathing area BBQ Pizza oven Swings and wendy house Private pool - 12M x 6M with internal steps. Solar heated with remote control pool cover Parking Outdoor lighting 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 ...... TOURIST TAX - Do note that there is a local stay tax applicable at €1 per person per night, up to a maximum of 5 nights. This does not apply to children under 14.More
