The bell house was built in the stronghold, right under the 13th Century Roman church of San Bartolomeo, and was used as an outpost by Lombardy soldiers who protected the valley and the river below from enemy intrusion. It was only in 1486 that part of it became a priest’s dwelling, with a small botanical garden behind the monastery, right where the soldiers had once been posted. Another part of the building was used as a manor house, with a stable below. Underneath, the village’s communal oven, built into the Lombardy walls, has been functional for centuries. It has been untouched for 500 years. L'ultimo restauro e' stato fatto nel 2012 e la casa oltre uno splendido panorama offre tutte le comodita':lavatrice,stenditoio,salone, fresche camere da letto,giochi per bambini, sdraio e amaca nel giardino, tavolo per mangiare fuori...

Additional amenities & feature info
La casa delle campane pur essendo nel centro della roccaforte di cocciglia, sotto la Chiesa di San Bartolomeo, gode di una totale indipendenza e riservatezza. Uno dei momenti piu' belli è la notte delle lanterne (il 23 agosto) in cui tutto il piccolo borgo viene illuminato con fiaccole colorate.Pur essendo molto silenzios il paesino è poco distante dalla strada SS12 che si puo' raggiungere anche a piedi, e dal fiume Lima, dove si possono fare bagni e prendere il sole. Poco lontano il maneggio con ottimi cavalli permette escursioni tra i boschi e negli alti pascoli, mentre le gite in quad consentono visite speciali lungo sentieri non asfaltati e molto panoramici. Per chi ama l'avventura lungo il fiume si puo' fare rafting o anche affittare kajak per scendere fino a valle a... more

About the neighbourhood
Cocciglia has been built in century 908, it's a Middle Ages village.
There are a lot of outdoor activities available nearby. Cocciglia is first remembered in a parchment of 985 as a village of the population of Casabasciana.It’s name derives from a late Roman settler Caucilius o Cocilius.

My home is near Pisa airport,and there are also many rent car in Pisa and in Lucca. You can arrived also in train to Bagni di Lucca station but is a very long voyager. Have a car is the best thig, because you can visit many beatifull place near Cocciglia. Take the A1 autostrada for Firenze.

Take the Firenze Nord exit and follow signs to Firenze (?), Pisa, Livorno. Exit Lucca Nord. Follow signs for SS-12 for Bagni di Lucca, then continue on the SS-12 to Abetone for another 5km. At the frazione Scesta turn left at the sign for Cocciglia.gni di Lucca. The home is a great old house build in 1486, which has been rebuilt and is really comfortable on 2011.
