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.

Happy in Capanori

4 of 5
Stefania's house is well located and in a stunning position with views across olive groves to the mountains beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. It is only 15 minutes to Lucca and about 45/50 minutes to a lovely beach. A good supermarket is 10 minutes away. The only downside for me was that the shower cubicle was rather small. Overall a great place to stay

Excellent, excellent, excellent

5 of 5
the property is just as shown in the pictures. Clean, furniture in good repair, with the added attractions of: comfortable beds, easy access, good garbage handling, close to EVERYTHING, and personable and helpful property manager (Mrs. Sonia) and owners (whom we were privileged to meet when we had a small problem with a broken part in one of the bathrooms.) Easy walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, shopping and of course, gelato. We especially liked Il Cuore restaurant right around the corner, and the Puccini concert in the church in the piazza. Not only would I recommend this apartment, I'll use it again myself when we visit Lucca again.
