The Space

• A village near (30mins) Lucca
• 2 bedrooms (4 four people) / 1 bathroom / 1 kitchen
• Fully equipped kitchen
• Free Internet access
• No heating or air conditioned needed in summer, weather is great
• 60 square meters (650 sq. feet)
• Parking spots 10 meters from the apartment

The owners will be discreetly available to give you tips and advice, if requested. You can surf the web via a protected WiFi network, no bandwidth limits. The wifi speed is not great but it works.

Within walking distance (100m to 2km), you can find various restaurants, a grocery store and mini-market, a tabacconist, and a bunch of bars and breakfast places. Supermarkets are a few kilometers away (2), like other nightlife attractions such as the theathre.

There are buses and trains available, almost every hour, so you will not have transportation problems to reach major cities such as Lucca (30 minutes) or Pisa and Florence (60 minutes).
If you come by car you can easily park it near the apartment, about 10 meters from it.

There are great places too to enjoy nature: Grotta del vento (Wind cave), Orrido di Botri, Prato Fiorito, Abetone, and many small yet beautiful villages.

If something is bothering you or you need further explanation on something that is missing, just ask. We are always available.

Heating is considered as an extra and you have to pay what you consume (1€/m3), but you won't really need it if you come here in summer.

Guest Access

Guests will have the entire apartment for themselves.

Interaction with Guests

I usually give a brief tour of the apartment upon arrival, then help finding places to go and stuff to do. Then, unless you directly contact me, I leave you alone.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is in a very quiet neighborhood, up in a small hill. The only sounds you can hear are the flowing of the water in the nearby river and some birds singing. Sometimes the neighbor likes to sing too. :)

Getting around

You can park your car near the apartment, about 10 meters (20 feet).

Downhill you can catch a bus to the train station or to Lucca. The train station is 5 minutes by car.

To get here from the airport in Pisa: head to Lucca, then head to Borgo a Mozzano, then head to Ponte a Serraglio.

  • We had a very pleasant stay at Appartamento Giallo, which was exactly as advertised and pleasantly decorated, and our host, Diego was on hand to answer all our questions quickly and efficiently. The resort of Bagni di Lucca was well resourced for it's size, with good restaurants, cafes's and food shops within easy reach of the apartment, both by car or on foot. There was a station in Fornoli, 2km away, and a good road to the town of Lucca, 35 minutes away, which is very lively with it's music festival in the summer, and has excellent travel links to all parts of Tuscany, especially Florence.

  • We stayed for two weeks in Diego's place and during this time we fell in love with Bangi di Lucca (small place where the apartment is) and our wonderful home!
    It is great to smell flowers when you come into the street. All smells are like in a countryside: grass, fire somewhere, flowers. The only noise is birds singing! So peaceful and quite! Great to sleep at night :)
    When it was hot outside, it was so so pleasant to come home, it was cool and fresh there, magic!
    Diego is a great host, he helped us in many ways and was always available if we need something. We came late in the night and he waited for us, didn't sleep! I am very very happy that we decided to stay in these place, now I am dreaming to buy a flat in these region :)
    Perfect place, not far from most interesting Toscana cities (we've visited lots of them by car) and great to relax and just spend time with nature, in a calm atmosphere.
    Thanks a lot, Diego!!!

  • Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans l'appartement de la famille Petrucci, avons été accueillis par la maman de Diego, et Diego est venu ensuite nous donner des informations et nous renseigner sur les lieux de visites. L'appartement est situé au calme sur une colline avec une belle vue, il est confortable et bien équipé. N'avons pas utilisé le chauffage, la météo était clémente fin octobre. La salle de bain avec une douche à l' italienne est assez petite. Une bouteille de vin en guise de bienvenue nous attendait à notre arrivée. Quelques commerces en bas au village dont une bonne pâtisserie, au centre ville vous trouverez tout le nécessaire. Il est impératif d'avoir une voiture pour explorer les alentours.

  • Diegos place is set in a lovely hilly area with restaurants and shops a very short drive away. There are a couple of hotels in walking distance that probably serve food in the summer, however we were there in October and not much was going on. The area is lovely and very convenient for Florence and Lucca, there is a train station near by and the trains are cheap and run regularly, although a car is necessary I feel to really enjoy the area.

    The flat itself is quite well equipped and very clean. Diego was a very helpful host and speaks great English. The flat has two bedrooms,however there is no living room so a family of four may find it a bit cramped when wanting to relax. Had a great stay and thank you to Diego and his family for making our stay so good. A great location for touring around this part of Tuscany.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Diego's appartment. We were gived a lot of privacy at our stay. The view from there was really beautiful and the small village was nice. If you want to see beautiful mountains, nice rivers, have a hike and relax, this is the perfect place to be in nature. Thank you Diego for being so helpful though our stay.

  • Gentilissima l'accolglienza, l'appartamento comodo e pulito, siamo stati bene anche se solo per una notte.
    Grazie. :-))

  • Quella con Diego è stata la mia prima esperienza di Airbnb e devo dire che è stata ottima. Accoglienza cordiale, disponibilità, simpatia, pulizia e ordine hanno contribuito a rendere il mio soggiorno piacevole, sicuramente un'esperienza che ripeterò in futuro. Last but not least - un vero amico.

  • We had a fantastic week at Diego's apartment. Diego is a marvelous host and he made sure that our stay in Tuscany was flawless. The apartment is beautifully located and conveniently organized and equipped - everything that we might need was there (even basic cooking supplies, fresh herbs, tea & coffee). You can park your car few meters from the flat - and if you plan to move around (yes, you are!), the car is a must (day trips to the mountains and cities). A couple of minutes walk down the hill takes you to the small riverside square with gelateria, bar, restaurant and a pharmacy. Few minutes more (walk) farther, you'll find a supermarket, a couple of restaurants and bars. The area is very beautiful and if you like to hike, you'd find opportunities galore (such as the Orrido do Botri canyon or the Balzo Nero peak - it's really worth going there and stopping on the way in a little gem of a hamlet - Vico Pancellorum). Beautiful town of Lucca is 25 minutes drive from Diego's and the motorways will get you to Florence, Siena and Pisa quickly. Diego's apartment is ready with the area maps, guidebooks etc. and his suggestions and hints are invaluable.

    Thank you very much for a great holiday!

About
I like new stuff, ideas, and people. I feel like you can never be too sure about anything and whenever you meet and talk to new people you learn about things you didn't know before and become a wiser person. I'm studying Medicine in Pisa, I love handcrafted-stuff and good design. I'm a minimalist, I believe you live better when you have less things (and keep only the important stuff). I like to eat, too, almost anything. I especially love non-italian food, like chinese, indian, and mexican. Fast-foods too. I don't watch much TV or movies, but I absolutely love Kubrick.
