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.

Our party comprised 6 adults, two small children and an 18 month old toddler. The accommodation in the main farmhouse was spotless, spacious and welcoming, and space was not a problem. We spent most of our days in and around the pool and our evenings on the patio gazing up at starry skies watching shooting stars, fireflies and trying to spot the nocturnal squirrel-like dormice in the walnut tree. We cooked pizzas in the pizza oven, barbequed and enjoyed the local wines and beers. Meals were taken while sitting under the attractive pergola which offered some welcome shade. We had very few problems but Gina and Michel were excellent hosts and responded very quickly and positively to all of our questions. The property is in a quiet location yet handy for all necessary amenities. The little town of Valdottavo, a 10 minute walk away, has the basic requirements, a great pizzeria/bar, a gelateria and very friendly locals. Nearby are some lovely places to visit, we particularly liked Bagni di Lucca and the amazing bridge at Borgo a Mozzano. We loved staying in this place and are already discussing when we would like to return......just fabulous!!!

The house was immaculately clean, beautifully presented and was very well equipped for a large family group. The linens, fixtures and fittings were all of very good quality and clearly well cared for. We particularly appreciated the travel cot, highchairs, stairgates and toys provided for the youngest in our group. The kitchen was large, functional and contained everything that we needed, although lacked the modern Tuscan country décor of the rest of the house. We all loved the pool and the large outdoor dining area, and swing-seat at the end of the garden was a hit with the children too! Sadly we weren't able to utilise it as much as we'd like due to the wet weather in the second half of our stay (always a risk early in the season), however the villa's mountain views provided a beautiful backdrop to the dramatic storm clouds! The house is in a quiet rural location but has shops and great local restaurants within driving distance (thank you Karen for your recommendations). Pisa, Florence, Lucca and the beach at Viareggio are all within an hour's drive so perfect for day trips. We'd love to return to the area in the future and would happily stay at Villa Rosa again.

Nearby in Borgo a Mozzano there is a lovely public pool which we used plus a local supermarket and shops in Bagni di Lucca. The restaurant Molin della volpe is amazing which is a two minute drive from the villa, we went three times. Plus they do take away pizza and even takeaway "fizzy wine" which we found to be very nice. I recommend the lamb chops and the chips (French fries) are homemade. The villa has a spacious upstairs bathroom/wc with a good shower, there's also an added bonus of a downstairs wc. Both bedrooms are large, the double single bedroom has a large three drawer chest for clothes plus a couple of shelves and a small bedside unit. The main bedroom had two bedside units plus a clothes tree and a couple of shelves. This was the only slight downside, a single wardrobe would have been useful especially as there is plenty of room for one. All the beds were very comfortable and the sheets etc clean and crisp. Lovely fluffy white towels too! Overall very nice and good communication with the owner. We would definitely stay again.
