Casa Palanca is a bright and airy holiday villa situated in a residential area close to the historic city of Lucca.

The well-maintained house is decorated in a rustic cottage style with exposed beams and traditional terracotta tiles which give the house a warm and welcoming feel. The cosy living area features a pretty fireplace and has lovely doors leading out to the garden whilst the charming kitchen-diner is ideal for cooking up a Tuscan feast.

The two-bedroom home is a great base for a family or a small group of friends to stay who wish to explore the wonderful surrounding town and cities or you could simply while away your days relaxing by your lovely private pool or dining al-fresco under the delightful covered patio.

There are plenty of amenities near to the house, with shops and restaurants just a short walk away and charming Tuscan villages within a short drive. When you are looking for somewhere more lively, Lucca, just 11km away, is full of great attractions to visit such as the city walls which can be explored by foot or by cycle. Inside the beautiful walls, there is also plenty to see including many ancient churches, after all Lucca is nicknamed ‘the city of a hundred churches’! A great one to start at is the cathedral which has been standing since the 11th century and is filled with stunning religious art. There are also plenty of trendy bars and restaurants to unwind in after a busy day of exploring.

You are also well placed to head into the rolling Tuscan hills where you can enjoy hiking trails through ancient woodlands, have a picnic in the grounds of stunning botanical gardens of Renaissance villas or sample wines at wonderful vineyards. As well as being close to the campagna, you are also nestled in between the famous city of Pisa and the coastal town of Viareggio. Whether you would like to spend the day visiting the Leaning Tower or dipping your toes into beautiful blue seas, both are just 40 minutes from the villa by car.

Situated in a residential area close to local shops and restaurants, Casa Palanca is an ideal base for an Italian holiday in Tuscany. Due to the great location, you are perfectly placed to enjoy the best of the Tuscan countryside as well as all of the culture and excitement of some of the most popular Italian cities.

Just 11km from your villa is the breathtaking city of Lucca which has enough attractions to fill all of your days if you want to stay local. A guided tour is a brilliant way to learn about Lucca’s history and find other attractions to visit along the way. There is one guided tour available which combines a walk around the walls of the city with wine tasting at different locations, a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Or if you are more of a foodie then there are many cookery classes at nearby farms or in the centre of Lucca, including pasta making courses.

Viareggio is another great town to visit. The town has a thriving centre with plenty of shops and restaurants but is also on the coast so there are ports and beaches as far as the eye can see! Make sure you give the local seafood a try while you are there, though the kids may prefer a trip to one of the ice-cream parlours on the promenade.

In the opposite direction is Pisa which has much more than its famous Leaning Tower to offer, though a visit to the main attraction is often enjoyed by everyone. A walk along the River Arno is great for getting away from the main tourist trail, have a drink in a local bar or look out the for lovely 14th century Palazzo Blu, a palace turned art gallery tucked away by the river.

A day out in Florence is another highlight of this area with its amazing art galleries, palazzi and churches. South of Florence, explore the famous Chianti hills, visiting vineyards and idyllic hilltop towns such as Castellina in Chianti, Certaldo and San Gimignano, all around ninety minutes away.

Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The rolling Tuscan hills are a great start for entertaining the kids on holiday. Let off some steam by heading out on one of the many hiking trails through the beautiful woodlands where you can enjoy amazing views while having a picnic together.

If you have little ones, then they may enjoy a walk around Pinocchio park. The park is a nice easy walk with statues from the Pinocchio fairytale dotted around the trail which children love.

A little further out is Zoo di Pistoia which is worth a visit. This zoo focuses on animal conservation and education and has over 400 animals to see. Families can spend the whole day at Zoo di Pistoia as there are play areas, cafes and shops as well as the animals.

Don't forget about the lovely sandy beach at Viareggio as well as the summer watersports on offer (or you may just prefer a pleasant walk along the lungomare with a gelato in hand).
