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.

It is literally about a 100m walk to the entrance of the Cathedral on one side and around 80m to the new Contemporary Art Museum and the shopping streets on the other side. We walked to all the major sights from the apartment. The owner was great, she gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and then a tour of the local neighbourhood, which we really appreciated as it made finding cafe, supermarket and shops much easier the next day. We also appreciated her buying us an espresso, not just because Italian coffee is great, but because it allowed us to see how the cafe ordering system works - absolutely nothing like how it works here in US! The apartment is spacious and was perfect for a senior couple. Even though it's in the center of the town it's not noisy at all, as the square and streets nearby are mainly pedestrian. The kitchen was very well supplied and the beds were comfortable. We loved the romantic view of the churches and the roofs of the old buildings! We loved our stay. Thank you! Jenny & James

Great location for us, fine restaurant 2 blocks away and food shopping nearby, well equipped, furnished and well-designed suite. Immaculately clean. Air conditioned (and that was needed because the temperature rose to 38 degrees most days we were there!) A friend joined us for several days, so the accommodation was perfect. Elevator was appreciated and we loved it. Wonderful outdoor deck with a table, four chairs and a giant sofa + a couple of lounge chairs. We had a late-arrival welcome basket with a few staples to help with a first breakfast and it was good. We have been in Lucca before, but I strongly suspect that we will look to Sonia and her team next time.
