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.

Great location in the centre of Lucca

4 of 5
Le Melodie is situated right in the centre of lucca, a ten minute walk from the train station. The accommodation is very good, with everything you need for your visit. The noises from the music school get on your nerves at times and the lack of air conditioning makes it uncomfortable at times, but overall I would recommend this apartment and would certainly stay there again if I go to lucca in the future.

It was amazing, Truly magical experience

5 of 5
This was our second time at Buralla and it did not disappoint. This is such an amazing property, the house, the grounds, the pool, everything was perfect. We had friends fly in from all over, some who had never been out of the U.S. and they had such a relaxing stay. Big bonus, we had Simonetta cook for us every night we were there. We ate like Kings and Queens. She is an amazing woman with such a big heart, oh and did I mention the meals she prepared were spectacular!!! In summary best two weeks we have had in a while and would recommend this wonderful home to anyone.
