About the villa

In a sunny spot on the hillside, at the foot of the Apuan Alps, this simple but spacious house is tiered into its sloping grounds, with accommodation over three levels. Privately positioned at the top of the villa is a four-poster bedroom, with French doors on to a covered terrace. Beneath, at upper ground level, the breakfast kitchen is furnished in contemporary country style and is open, through an archway, to an airy sitting room with direct access to the dining terrace. Two double bedrooms share this floor, one with doors on to the garden; and there are two more at the lower ground level, along with a large living room with a dining area, two big sofas and doors straight out to the poolside lawns. Indoor and outdoor comforts are catered for with WiFi, satellite tv and, in the beautifully tended gardens, a built-in barbecue with a wood oven and preparation area. Just 4km from shops and restaurants in Camaiore, Casale il Balzo is 12km from both the lively beach resort of Viareggio and the historic town of Pietrasanta, replete with boutiques, galleries and trendy eateries. Lucca’s lovely piazzas are well within reach, 28km away.

About the area

Lucca, Pisa & Lunigiana

Average weather

Although they are only 17km apart, Pisa and Lucca instantly feel like different worlds. The former is a lively student city on the River Arno, and has one of the world’s most recognizable monuments: the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Understated Lucca is compact and genteel, ideal for a Tuscany villa nearby, with handsome piazzas that frame churches in the Luccan-Romanesque style. Those on a Lunigiana holiday occupy the Apennine foothills in far north-western Tuscany. It is rolling, blissfully empty terrain whose few inhabitants have cultural links with neighbouring Liguria.

Essential Information

Please note that there is a European tourist tax payable on arrival to the House Manager. This only applies to guests over 12 years and the amount varies from €1 .50 to €5 per person and is set by the local council. Further details will be advised prior to arrival

Having a barbecue in Italy is one of the best ways to cook your food but you may find that due to long drought periods in high season barbecuing may be restricted in some areas. You will be informed if this happens by your house staff or local representative.
