About the neighbourhood
The village has an excellent pizzeria, 'Tre Tigli'. There is a small grocery store stocking all the essentials, with several larger supermarkets close by. March sees the 'Camellia Festival' with thousands of camellia plants blooming at their peak...visitors come from all over the world to see the show. Of course, the Town of Lucca is not to be missed..a short 20-minute drive away.
Getting around
A car is really a necessity...we are approx. 11 KM. from the walls of Lucca town, in a hidden valley in the Pisan Mountains. The village is nestled in a bowl-shaped valley with olive groves and vineyards. There is easy access to the village with 2 paved entrance roads....bus service, however, is only twice daily.
