Things to do

-Outdoor activities: The Montalbano hills are the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci and the landscape is recognised the world over for its beauty. There is an extensive network of pedestrian and cycling trails in the area that pass by ancient churches, forests, medieval palaces and vineyards.

-Relaxation: For hundreds of years, visitors to the area have been surrendering their bodies to the natural thermal grottos of Monsummano, just five kilometres from Montevettolini. Steam and hot water exudes from natural cavities at Grotta Parlanti located more than 110 metres deep inside a mountain. At Grotta Giusti, a modern spa resort has grown up that offers a range of relaxing and therapeutic treatments.

-Events: Montevettolini’s narrow lanes and piazzas witness frequent folk and religious festivals that hark back to ancient traditions. Visitors who book their holiday villas in Montevettolini during the second week of September will see its most colourful party, the Medieval Festival. Locals dress up in period costumes as merchants, crusaders, falconers, pilgrims and troubadours, wandering the streets and medieval themed market playing musical instruments. Other festivals include the costumed procession of Jesus's Passion and Death. It is held every three years on Good Friday.

-Historic monuments: Montevettolino is like a living museum with ancient squares, buildings, churches and palaces. They include the Villa Medicea built as a hunting residence for the powerful Medici of Florence, between the 15th and the 16th centuries. Older than this is the former town hall palace, constructed before the 13th century.

From the moment we were met at the train station we were treated like family. Duccio recommended the most delightful restaurant and made reservations for us and we returned two more times. We were traveling with 5 other couples and the ample size of the apartment allowed privacy when we needed it and wonderful gathering places when we came together. We liked the kitchen so much we cooked more that we were planning to. We have referred my cousins to your site and told them to stay with you when the go to Lucca. Thank you for all that you did.

The villa is decorated in true Tuscan style and is immensely clean. Lorenzo and Marie are fantastic hosts and nothing was too much for them. Their local knowledge will ensure that you have a problem free holiday. Five stars all the way.

It is located in a very convenient part of Lucca, away from the mobs, but close enough to the museums and churches to make it an easy walk to the major sights. It’s about a 2 minute walk to the Main Square and the Main shopping street is just at the corner and about a five minute walk to the train and bus stations. There are ATMs and groceries just around the corner from the apartment. The neighborhood is VERY safe. There is a friendly and helpful lovely market close by. The street has several small grocery stores and other shops. My favorite was literally at the bottom of the street. Fresh fruit, vegetables, pastries, bread, local wines, meats and some prepared food were all available within a one-block radius. Some of the merchants speak a little English, and some don’t, so it’s a great opportunity to practice your Italian. We greatly appreciated the outdoor patio despite it was cold in January but we could sit for a drink during the day, we could have had incredible unforgettable dinners there at night and relaxing rests in late afternoon after our shopping and strolls in the town if we came in spring or summer. Many thanks Sonia for the suggestions and all your help! We will definitely be back soon
