Interaction with Guests
The property is owned by my Uncle Luca Rivetti, who will greet you upon arrival.
Living and working on site he is always present to assist you with any requirement you may need. He will give you keys and all instructions on arrival.
The countryside around the apartment is utterly charming and very typical of Tuscany’s lush green valleys with its gently undulating hills covered in vine yards and olive groves. These rural areas can be explored in many ways and we do recommend either hiring a car or bicycles to really get a good look round, but bus tours are available. But just because you start in the country, it doesn’t mean you have to stay there for the duration of your holiday. The beach is not far away and the Tyrrhenian coast is one of the unsung highlights of Tuscany. Viareggio is Tuscany’s largest coastal city and it is only 30km away. The beach is excellent and stretches for miles. One of Italy’s foremost Carnivals takes place in Viareggio every spring. The iconic paper mache floats and masked parades are world famous and quite a sight to behold. Other smaller resort towns dot the coast, including Forte dei Marmi, which has been an exclusive destination for the Italy’s wealth and nobility for centuries.
It is conveniently located in the countryside just 5km from Lucca, 15 km from Pisa, 70km from Florence and just 20 minutes away from the Versilian coastline and its famous sandy beaches. There are also 5 golf courses within a radius of 50 km.
On the way to Lucca you will find many stores for your house shopping: I can recommend “Penny Market” (a cash and carry shop) and “Esselunga” where you will find all what you may need for the house (pay attention! On Sunday most of time they are closed).
