A little about location:
Poggio is an historic village situated in the hills, some 10 minutes north of Castelnuovo (which itself is circa 45 minutes North of Lucca).
This is a quaint historic, rural village with cobbled streets and wonderful views. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area within a short drive, and the property is a 10-minute walk from a railway station offering access to Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the Coast. Castelnuovo, with its outdoor swimming pool, famous market, and numerous bars restaurants is only 8 kms away.
Hundreds of hilltop villages abound and less than 3km away is the village of Camporgiano which has restaurants, bars, small supermarkets and privately owned castle.
Just across the valley is the stunningly located fortress of Verrucole and also the zip wire park which is great fun for both children and adults, and ideal for a day in the welcome shade! You can also picnic and BBQ here if you want to make a day of it.
The local attractive market town of Castelnuovo, famous for its Thursday morning markets, and with all facilities is just a 10 minute drive. This town has bars, restaurants, gelaterias, and a river...In high season the town really comes alive, and often hosts outdoor evening entertainment.
The beautiful mediaeval town of Barga with its cobbled streets, renowned restaurants, Cathedral and stunning views is a 40 minute drive, and often there is free live music here.
Lucca, with its fully intact walls can't be missed for a day out and cycling around the walls is a firm favourite with day trippers and locals alike. Here, spend the day meandering in the shady streets, sitting in the open piazzas, dining al fresco, climbing towers, visiting the Opera (this is the birthplace of Puccini) or just shopping!
The Grotta del Vento, the famous Wind Caves is also a family favourite...
There is lots to do if you wish, but the real beauty of the area is the countryside and the scattering of small villages wherever you go....
TOURIST TAX - Do note that there is a local stay tax applicable at €1 per person per night, up to a maximum of 5 nights. This does not apply to children under 14.
NB - you can drop off luggage or shopping at the property but then you need to leave the car in the free and safe parking area in the village, less than a 5 minute walk away .
