Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
Villa Basilica, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
Peaceful and secluded , in hilly country surrounded by wooded hills. Adjacent are the owner's terraced olive groves and pinewood, ensuring privacy (apart from owner's other nearby house Casa San Moscato, formerly the farmhouse, sleeping up to nine, which is also available to let - see 'Tuscany, Lucca' on this website). This part of Tuscany is still relatively undiscovered 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 for walkers there is direct access to pleasant hills with the Appennines within easy reach. There is a spring at the property, though we are now on mains water.<BR><BR>

Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent 10 days here and had a super time. The countryside is gorgeous, overlooking mountainous landscapes and set among olive groves. Having a car is necessary for the 10-minute mountain drive up to the cottage, but well worth it once you're there. The location was good for visiting the Garfagnana/Apuan Alps for hiking, Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre. The cottage is well-equipped and handy for a couple or small family. This was out first holiday with a small baby and we had an excellent time and would recommend this place. The owners were very accommodating with lots of info and advice. We will miss it!

Additional amenities & feature info
The conversion was carried out by expert local builders in a way that respected the character of the buliding while turning it into a little bijou cottage. It is completely self-sufficient except that the electricity supply is routed through the big house.

Pinocchio Park at Collodi
Pizzeria in village
Restaurants at Biecina and Pizzorne hilltop.
Collodi is also very picturesque, as are the other villages on the flanks of the valley - Villa Basilica, Boveglio, Colognora, all 'eagles' nests' like Pariana itself. There are footpaths linking all these.<BR><BR>The road north up the valley goes over a pass with spectacular views to the Appennines and down to Bagni di Lucca, a nineteenth-century spa-town (still, of course, a spa with swimming etc) once home to the poet Shelley. This is also where the Linea Gotica passed in 1944 and there are memorials to the Italian resistance. <BR> <BR>
Getting around
On the other side of the hills on which San Moscato stands, facing Lucca, are the Colline Lucchese doc vineyards and just the other side of the Lucca road are the Montecarlo doc vineyards.<BR><BR>I will not go into detail here over the cultural, shopping, promenading and other attractions of Lucca, our nearest substantial town, beyond saying that we never tire of visiting it. Its big festival is the Volto Santo, mid September. Pescia, which is closer, is smaller but has a lot to offer, as does the smart modern spa-town Montecatini Terme. Pisa, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano etc are within easy reach, some by rail.<BR><BR>There are coastal resorts all along the magnificent sandy beaches stretching north from Viareggio. Slightly furt
Access
Car advised
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.<BR><BR>www.easyjet.com<BR>www.ryanair.com<BR>www.jet2.com<BR>
