Make a holiday rental home or villa in Piazza al Serchio, Italy your home away from home

Piazza al Serchio is a rare delight – a rural village well off the tourist trail, but a destination that has all of the amenities and facilities required to enjoy a self-catering vacation to its fullest. The village also has good transport links, meaning whether you decide to head out and explore the delights of Lucca, Pisa, Florence or simply the remainder of the mountainous Garfagnana region you have plenty of options. The village is peaceful, quiet and has a laid-back atmosphere – perfect for that relaxing annual break.

Things to do in Piazza al Serchio, Italy

The name ‘Piazza al Serchio’ originates from the town’s position close to the high basin of the Serchio River. The river, as well as nearby Lake Gramalazzo are delightful places for a spot of swimming or relaxation on the waterside, and taking a picnic and a bottle of local wine has long been a popular choice.

Piazza al Serchio is a traditional Italian village, and the perfect place to practice your Italian skills. You should not expect English to be widely spoken in the area – this part of Tuscany is far from overrun with foreign tourists after all – but you can expect a warm welcome from the friendly locals, and to return with more knowledge of the local lingo than you arrived with.

All of the eating options in Piazza al Serchio can be reached on foot from the village’s holiday rental accommodation, meaning if you fancy a meal and a few drinks in the local restaurant you will not have to worry about getting a taxi to and from the eatery. Eating-out options in Piazza al Serchio include a snack bar for panini’s and coffee, a pizzeria and two traditional Italian restaurants that serve a variety of pasta dishes and local favourites.

Places to visit on holiday in Piazza al Serchio, Italy

Visitors to Piazza al Serchio have an abundance of choices when it comes to places to visit during their stay. A couple of suggestions to get you started are: Lucca (62km) – which is just over an hour on the train or by car, but well worth the journey due to its fantastically preserved old buildings and high-quality gardens, and Camporgiano (5km) – an ancient hill town that is home to an impressive castle.

Weather in Piazza al Serchio, Italy

The summer in Piazza al Serchio is ideal for spending daytimes outdoors and evenings on the terrace of your holiday villa, with daily high temperatures above 30C and warm evenings. Proceedings cool down somewhat from September onwards, but pleasant weather can still be enjoyed all the way through until late October.

Flights to Piazza al Serchio, Italy

At a little under 100km away, Pisa Galileo Galilei International Airport (PSA) is the closest airport to Piazza al Serchio, but Florence Peretola (FLR, 106km) is a good alternative. Pisa is generally the cheaper option as it is the Tuscan destination for budget airlines such as Ryanair and easyJet, but special offers can sometimes be found on flights to Florence.

Chosen for its accommodation, pool and location close to Pisa and Lucca this period villa with its stunning mountain backdrop on the edge of the town of Camaiore lived up to all our expectations. Greeted by the owners on arrival, our limited Italian and English jointly allowed us to understand the intricacies of the Italian rubbish recycling system, electrics, alarms,Wi-fi, pool and electric gates with "Phone Sonia" as the default when something unexpected needed to be explained! The accommodation is perfectly arranged, south facing with 3 different outside terraces which caught the sun or shade depending on the time of day and the pool was in the sun continuously. A small building to the side of the villa contains a quiet retreat with seating, coffee and comfortable sofas for those looking to escape the main house for a hour or so. In through the main door and to your right is the larger living room with TV,satellite and DVD sofa chairs and table and doors out the East terrace - this was the children's den and retreat from the heat in the middle of the day. Also on the East side was our ground floor double bedroom - stunning mountain views out of the window and able to watch the sun rise from our bed. On the left of the hall is the smaller dining room which links into the kitchen. A double door leads out to the front terrace with 2 seats which proved a great vantage point to watch the antics in the pool. The well equipped kitchen had everything needed for our stay and a very large American style fridge freezer was put to good use. Leading off the kitchen through double doors was the West terrace with a large table, seating and built in barbecue where many happy evenings were spent after the kids went to bed! (The handy bottle bank is just the other side of the road) At the back of the house was our WC shower room and a utility room. Up the marble stairs and on the half landing was the single bedroom, ideal for the smallest family member and then upstairs were 4 large doubles - 1 with access to the 1st floor terrace. 2 bathrooms - 1 with bath completed the accommodation. Everything was well maintained and where appropriate in a period style. A short 5 min walk into Camaiore with its many bars and restaurants was ideal and a 20 min drive to Pisa or Lucca catered for all tastes. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
