Villa overview - owner's description

Beautiful house in the historical village of Bagni di Lucca, with a very large private garden and private access to the river.

The region around Bagni di Lucca is called Media Valle - Garfagnana and has a multitude of lovely spots and historical towns like Barga, Castelnuovo, Coreglia degli Antelminelli etc... all at an altitude of 500m (1500 feet). This region has attracted many illustrious British visitors in the past two centuries Byron and Shelley, for instance, visited Bagni di Lucca many times. The thermal baths of Bagni di Lucca have been known for many centuries. Montaigne, the French writer, cured his illness in Bagni di Lucca and wrote about it in his memories. In the first half of the 19th century Bagni di Lucca became a fashionable resort of the court of the grand duke of Tuscany. The first roulette in the world was conceived and installed in the Casino of Bagni di Lucca. Although Bagni di Lucca is a small village, its 19th century dwellings confer to the town the looks of an important centre, as for instance the Anglican church, the Protestant Cemetery, the municipal Casino, the Ducal (later Grand Ducal) Palace and Stables, the Demidoff hospital, the Circolo dei Forestieri, Villa dei Fiori, Villa Ada and the Bagno alla Villa.

Another singularity of Bagni di Lucca is its being composed of two separate villages, called "Ponte a Serraglio" and "La Villa". Along both of them flows a lovely mountain river called the Lima, which offers opportunities for fishing and canoeing. There is a large Municipal swimming pool using the thermal water, with a separate diving pool and a smaller pool for children. Excellent tennis courts are also available. There are good opportunities for Trekking and mountain bike riding on trails and paths which afford some lovely views of the valley. Parachute jumping from the peaks of the Apennines is also available in the vicinity of Bagni di Lucca.

During winter, you can enjoy the skying resorts of the Abetone

The house
