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.

We found everything according to the description. The houskeeper Anna was very friendly and helpful, especially with the centralheating that was absolutely necessary as we stayed around Easter of 2017. We loved the tiny hamlet of Castello, the silence, stunning view of the surrounding hills and the walks through the olive tree gardens as well as the proximity to Lucca. Dear Jenny, we've already recommended this house to friends and plan to come back sometime! Kind regards, Uli, Heinz + Yuma

The house was absolutely perfect, tastefully furnished, very clean and comfortable. We loved the position on a hill slope facing the south, there was a plenty of sun on the terrace all day long so even in March we felt almost like it was summer - but so fresh! And the views were amazing! Massimo (the owner) was very friendly and helpful, thank you very much Massimo! We hope to be back.
