Riverside villa - Teresa house

Overview

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
Riverside Villa is composed of 3 houses attached to each other, and facing a large garden bordering the river Lima.

Just next door are the Mirafiume Tennis courts. The municipal swimming pool is within walking distance. A good supermarket can be reached in two minutes walking. The village of "La Villa" has several good restaurants and stores.

The house has 3 stories, 3bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 ensuite with bathtubs and 1 with shower), a large kitchen/dining area facing the garden.
The Teresa house has direct acess to the garden.
Accommodation is for 5 people. Bed sheets, blankets and towels are provided. The house has been completely renovated.

The outside of the house needs some work done on it, but inside it has been beautifully renovated - a little bit of finishing work is needed, but it is very livable in. The kitchen area is a bit dark and the living area needs some more comfortable seating. The garden at the back, leading to the river, is lovely, and rustic. Some more outdoor furniture would be a welcome improvement. The house was well located, about 3 mins. from a good supermarket, and about 5mins. walking, from the charming village centre,which had several good restaurants and bars. Bagni di Lucca itself was very well situated for Lucca, Florence, as well as many gorgeous hilltop villages. Pietro and Sibilla were very friendly and quick to respond to any problems we had.
