Make a holiday rental home or villa in Minucciano, Italy your home away from home

Once the subject of many quarrels over ownership, Minucciano is now a peaceful destination that can be used as an excellent base for exploring Garfagnana and the surrounding parts of Tuscany, Italy. Although it is not one of the busiest villages in the region in terms of tourists, Minucciano does have something to offer, with an array of historical attractions, good amenities and a number of local festivals held throughout the year.

Things to do in Minucciano, Italy

Minucciano has a population of just over 2,000, with the majority employed in fruit and vegetable production or the service industry. As you may imagine then, eating and drinking are popular pastimes in the village, with cafés and restaurants to be found both in the centre and on its outskirts, and the offerings generally of a high standard.

Minucciano has three main sites of historical interest within its boundaries, namely the Pieve di San Lorenzo, the Sancturio della Madonna del Soccorso and the Palazzo Baldini: a parish, a sanctuary and a palace respectively. Of the three, the parish is perhaps the most interesting, with its octagonal bell tower and picturesque position on the banks of the Tassonara stream.

An interesting time of the year in which to visit Minucciano is the Christmas holidays. This is when the annual 'Palio dei Natalecci' competition takes place, which requires Minucciano and neighbouring villages to compete to construct the finest tower out of only branches and shrubs. At the end of the festival the tower is then burnt. More festivals and events take place throughout the year, and are a great time to meet the locals and brush up on your Italian.

Places to visit on holiday in Minucciano, Italy

Minucciano borders seven other municipalities, so exploring the area during your stay is an easy task. Camporgiano (18km) is one of these municipalities, and something of a favourite with tourists due to its excellent weekly market and fantastic fortress – which dates back to 1300. Also bordering Minucciano is Piazza al Serchio (12km), a lesser-frequented destination that will allow you to escape the beaten tourist trail.

Weather in Minucciano, Italy

The weather in Minucciano is at its best between June and August, when the daily average temperature is 27C, and above 30C is common. Outside of this period a holiday in Minucciano can still be enjoyed, but you may need to take a raincoat if visiting between October and February.

Flights to Minucciano, Italy

Minucciano is well positioned when it comes to airports, with both Pisa Airport (PSA) and Florence Peretola Airport (FLR) under an hour and a half drive away. The distances from Minucciano are 112km and 90km respectively. This means you can shop around and find the best prices available at the time.

We spent a wonderful week in Sonia's Bicocche Farmhouse. It's in a beautiful area of Tuscany only a short way from Lucca and from the Beaches of lido Di Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio and the breathtaking Cinque Terre with other places such as Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano and Volterra as well as the villages of the Chianti region all within an hour or so's drive. Whilst the villa is in a quiet, unspoilt rural area, access to major roads is quick and easy which all adds to the ease with which you can explore this part of Tuscany. The villa is spacious and intimate. It is well equipped and has a real sense of character about it. It lies in lovely grounds with pool garden surrounded by the quietness that everyone needs to recover after a busy year. The outlook is across meadows and olive groves which we loved. We particularly enjoyed watching hoopoes feeding on the grass and redstarts nest building in the trees! It’s lovely to have a car to have daily trips (or at least to drive to the train station in 10-15 mins) while Camaiore and the close by Montemagno, the villages in which the villa lies, are lovely villages with several facilities and the nearest shops/supermarkets and restaurants if you want to eat out are within 5 mins driving. There is a bus at the top of the road for Lucca, but once again a car is far more convenient. In summary, the description you read of the property is accurate. It is clean and has the real sense of an old stone house. Sonia and Cristina were extremely welcoming and helpful and we would certainly recommend the property to friends and family. It would be very hard to find anything negative to say about it. We certainly anticipate returning at some time ourselves to continue our exploration and appreciation of this fascinating part of Tuscany. Thanks Sonia for your impressive customer care. You have been wonderful.

The property was lovely, well appointed and comfortable. We were given a warm welcome by the owners who popped in during our stay to make sure everything was OK. The situation is beautiful with superb views and a brilliant base for exploring the area. We could not have asked for more! Thank you.
