About Almut Hintze

Eugenio (my husband) and I purchased Casa Prosperi in 2015 and thus re-gained possession of the property which previously had been owned by Eugenio's ancestors. From his childhood, Eugenio spent his summer holidays in Riolo, but we now live in Cambridge (England)

Almut Hintze purchased this house in 2014

Why Almut Hintze chose Bagni di Lucca

The house is located on the edge of a small village in the hills above Bagni di Lucca. Somewhat distant from the buzz of the cities, it offers peace, fresh air and fresh, tasty water. Approximately 15 minutes by car is Montefegatesi, a lovely mountain village, and the Orrido di Bottri, the local nature reserve. Here you can: take a tour and explore the gorge by walking up the river bed, marvel at the wonderful wildlife - maybe spot a golden eagle or see some rare plant life, or simply have a lovely picnic and enjoy the peace and quiet. During the summer a fiesta is held there and local produce e.g honey or cheese can be purchased. There is also a large barbecue which is a great experience to mingle with the local residents and soak up the Italian lifestyle. Throughout the summer months many mountain villages in the area host their own fiestas, providing foods indicative of their area. A marvellous and exciting way to see and experience the real Tuscan life. Borgo A Mozzano is approximately 20 minutes away, by car, and has the famous bridge Ponte della Maddelena, also known as The Devil's Bridge. The city of Lucca is 30 minutes away and a magnet for Puccini fans. There is a museum dedicated to him and open air concerts are regularly held to celebrate his works.

What makes this house unique

The views from the house and garden are lovely. You will overlook the hills far into the distance, listen to the sound of silence, the sounds of the animals of the forest, and watch the eagles circling over the valley during daytime. At night you see a magnificent starred sky and fireflies and glowworms. There are lovely walks starting right from the house, and there are special places to visit Riolo, including Montefegatesi, the Orrido di Botri, and the Prato Fiorito.
