    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
    Peaceful and secluded farmhouse in hilly country with wonderful views of surrounding wooded hills. Around the house are the owner's terraced olive groves and pinewood, ensuring privacy (only other nearby building is owner's chestnut-dryer tower converted to 2 person house, 'Moscatino', which is also available to let - look under 'Tuscany, Pescia' on this website). This part of Tuscany is still relatively unaffected by tourism and in the village the rustic life goes on as it always has, with forestry and olive husbandry. The area is much more hilly than the more southerly parts of Tuscany - it is not so stiflingly hot as the plain and there is dramatic scenery all around, with direct access for walkers to pleasant hills and the Appennine mountains within eas... more

    How to get there
    Airport: Pisa: 24.9 mi
    Railway: Pescia: 6.2 mi
    San Moscato is at Pariana, a village in the hills about 15 kms. east of Lucca. From Lucca take the main road, turning left at Collodi onto the Collodi-Bagni di Lucca road, and Pariana is on a spur off that road. Alternatively reach Collodi from the Pisa-Lucca-Firenze autostrada. The most convenient airport is Pisa, to which budget airlines fly from Stansted, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds and many other airports. It is also accessible from Bologna or Genova airports. Cars may be hired from all these - we find best thing is to compare prices on-line. There is a daily bus-service to Pariana but not very frequent.

Really comfortable house. We were 2 parents 4 children and a boyfriend for 10 days in August. Very friendly reception, spacy house and great terrace. Good location for Florence, Lucca and the Sea.
