    Villa Sorana is located in an idyllic spot in the Tuscan countryside, and as you explore the surrounding area, you'll find plenty of fascinating sights and activities to enjoy.

    Starting with the beach, the picturesque coastline of Viareggio (54km) is just a short drive away. Here, visitors can spend their days sunbathing on the sandy shore or swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The town itself is also a gem, with a lively promenade lined with restaurants, cafes, and bars that come alive at night.

    For those looking for a more secluded beach experience, the Gulf of Baratti (153km) is a must-visit destination. This hidden gem is a paradise for beach lovers with its turquoise waters and pristine sand. But the Gulf of Baratti is more than just a beach – it's also home to a fascinating archaeological park that showcases the Etruscan civilisation that once inhabited the area.

    To taste history and culture, the nearby town of Lucca is a must-see and only half an hour's drive. Encircled by its medieval walls, Lucca is a charming town with a rich history that dates back to Roman times. Visitors can explore its cobbled streets and piazzas, admire its historic buildings and monuments, and enjoy the local cuisine in its many trattorias and restaurants.

    Another town worth visiting is Pisa, known for its iconic leaning tower. But there's much more to Pisa than just its famous tower. The town is home to a beautiful cathedral, a fascinating botanical garden, and a vibrant street life, making it a fun place to explore.

    If you're looking for shops and other essential services, the charming town of Pietrobuona is just a short 10-minute drive away from the holiday villa. However, if you're in the mood for historical sightseeing, the nearby town of Pescia is a fantastic option with its well-preserved medieval architecture and landmarks. Within a 15-minute drive, you can explore the fascinating 13-14th century Palazzo del Vicario, the impressive 12-13th century Palazzo Palagio, and even the unique Old Flower Market - a 1950s building with surprisingly modern design.

    Nature lovers should head to the nearby Apuan Alps, where they can hike through rugged mountain terrain, explore underground caves, and soak up breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Or, for a more relaxing experience, the thermal springs of Montecatini Terme offer a rejuvenating escape from the stresses of everyday life.
