Bagni Di Lucca is the nearest small town, where one can purchase almost anything you might need. Including open air fresh food market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Plenty of bars & restaurants can be visited with excellent tourist menus for 10 euros.

Local activities are many & wide spread,(see list below). Why not start planing your late summer/autumn/winter trips.Come celebrate the wine & autumn chestnut harvest.

Skiing?Villa Rosa is only 40 minutes from the biggest skiing area south of the Italian Alps at Abetone. A hidden gem away from the heard!

Golf: There is a golf course in Montecatini: 40 minutes drive away.

Ski: Villa Rosa and Casa Bruno are situated only 40 minutes driving from Abetone ski resort, which is open from December to April.It is not only the biggest resort south of the Italian Alps but also the biggest Apennine resort. Located in a state forest on the Modena to San Marcello Road near the border between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, with ski access points at Faidello (1220m) Abetone (1400m) Le Regine (1200m) Plan di Novello (1150m) and Cutigliano (733m).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1325

About the owner: We are a family group that has owned the property since 1325. It entered our family possession as a reward for excellent service at the Battle of Altopascio where Lucca defeated Florence. After Rosina or Rosa passed away a few years ago we thought about what we could do with the property.We saw these non locals coming in and renting properties and thought not only could we do a BETTER job but be more competitive as well. With a family business and customer focused background, totalling over 200 years, we aim to provide the best Tuscany holiday you can experience.

Why the Owner Chose Bagni di Lucca:
It is easier to explain why we did not go for a property in Bagni di Lucca itself. Before we re-modernised Villa Rosa we looked at investing in Bagni. It didn't offer what we thought was a true Tuscan Village/hamlet experience, that we new our future guests would prefer. Plus the views at the bottom of our valley are quite limited and constrained.So therefore our choice of location and property were ideal because it was close to Bagni but offered so much more in terms of relaxation, enjoyment and amazing upper valleys views. Also by basing ourselves 10 minutes driving up the valley, we gain the cooling effect of our Prato Fiorito, mountain breezes. Come and find out for yourselves.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Villa Rosa has the best of both words for those that want the Villa in the country side but also know its perfectly placed to take advantage of amenities of a village shop and grocery store only 8 minutes walk away.You are also well placed to drive to supermarkets and hypermarkets from 10 to 25 minutes away.It has space for large family groups and is also perfectly suited for the single writer or producer looking for that piece and quite to think things through.We have fitted a fantastic NATO graded wifi. None of this cueing up up at the local tourist office, to keep abreast of whats going on.The villa is open all year round and with central heating throughout the property you will feel warm and snug throughout the winter months.In the summer, our large swimming pool allows guests to cool down and chill-out in the orchard garden. Here they will experience the total piece and relaxation, of the beautiful Northern Tuscany countryside, that is the Lima Valley.
