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

The town of Pescaglia lies in the countryside of the Lucca Province of northern Tuscany. Lying in the heart of the Province, in the Poggio Valley, the town is split into three sections, Castello del Poggio, Piazzanello or Villabuona. Pescaglia is a magnificent hideaway in the foothills of the woodland carpeted foothills of the eastern Apuan Alps, where peace and natural beauty will be a large feature of your holiday. There can be few places better suited to just getting away, relaxing and enjoying all that is best about rural Tuscany.

Things to do on holiday to Pescaglia, Italy

Waking up in a Pescaglia property, opening the curtains and watching the sun rising over the wooded hills is the ideal start to a day. There are more walking, mountain biking and horse riding tracks through the hills than you could possibly take on in a single holiday, with tracks dating back many centuries. Walking holidays in Pescaglia are sensational, and the heart cuisine and fine wines synonymous with the area are absolutely perfect after a long day exploring the hills. The Garfagnana National Park lies right on the doorstep of a Pescaglia holiday home, which is home to a huge variety of wildlife, and one of the few places where wolves still roam free in Europe. There are plenty of tours of the park.

Taking a self catering Pescaglia property is the only way to truly experience the area, allowing you to fish for your supper in the tributaries and rivers which gush along the valleys, and cook them with the finest of local vegetables, and a splash of wine. Alternatively, you can leave the cooking to the experts and savour the wild boar and authentic pizzas. You will never be short on cooking advice if you ask, and there are some excellent one, two and 5 day cooking courses to take too.

Places to visit on holiday to Pescaglia, Italy

The stunning walled town of Lucca is just 20 minutes drive from a Pescaglia villa.

The town of Borgo a Mozzano is the closest town, just 15 minutes away. The Devil’s Bridge is well worth exploring, not only due to its bizarre construction, but also for the folklore which surrounds it. The Tuscan coast is only 45 minutes away too, meaning you can easily take a day on the fine golden sands of Viareggio from your self catering Pescaglia property.

Weather in Pescaglia, Italy

The summer is delightfully warm in Pescaglia. Temperatures routinely hit 30˚C in July and August, although the crisp mountain air remains wonderfully fresh, helped by the breezes coming up from the coast. In winter, average monthly temperatures drop to around 5˚C.

The villa itself was lovely- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a lovely large kitchen/dining room with beautiful views of the hills. The house was spotlessly clean, with comfy beds and plenty of space for us (2 adults and children aged 10 and 12). The location is so peaceful, and the view from the pool amazing- we didn't want to leave! We spent a lot of time in the pool, playing table tennis and just enjoying the tranquility. Patrizia was very friendly and welcoming, but not at all intrusive. We would love to return, and really recommend this villa.

The location was perfect for us, quiet and peaceful, surrounded by hills and nature, with a beautiful view from the pool. James and Christine keep the garden, grounds and pool beautifully and the house itself was great. We spent most of our time outside under the porch which has a large table and chairs perfect for eating. Lily our daughter fell in love with the hammock and spent the majority of evenings curled up in it listening to music/reading a book! The kitchen was well equipped with all we could have asked for to enable us to cook meals and we made good use of the bbq. It is only a 20 minute drive to the centre of Lucca which is a great place to visit, the old walled town is beautiful and there are lots of good places to eat and a vast array of shops to suit all tastes/budgets. James and Christine are very knowledgeable of the area and there is a great information pack in the cottage. We tried a couple of the restaurants they recommended and were not disappointed. A car is a must, as the price you pay for such peace and tranquility is that, although it is close to a small village, it is up a hill and quite remote. Once again, James and Christine thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home and in such a beautiful part of the world. Best wishes to you both and not forgetting Samson and Hercules who were very friendly.

Perfect if you want to unwind and do very little. Not too far from Lucca which is a beautiful city. The house was as described in the description, and the photos were accurate. Communication with the owners was good. I would highly recommend if you want a break from everyday life, though the wifi is there if you need it!
