There are two bedrooms, separate bathroom and large airy lounge with integral kitchen area. There is a gas hob and fridge with a range of cupboards. There are two armchairs, one three seater settee, a coffee table and dining table with four chairs. There are also two sun loungers and umbrella for outside use.

Property features

Who we are

  1. The apartment is a holiday home for myself and my partner Pam. We are both in our 60's. I am semi-retired and work for a charity and Pam is a teacher. We both live in London and are happy to swap my London home which is a two bedroomed Victorian cottage 30 minutes from the centre of London by underground train; the station Wanstead is two minutes away. The area is a suburb of London and surrounded by parks and forest, with lots of restaurants and sports' facilities close by. More details of London home if you request them.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is in the small spa town of Bagni di Lucca which is on the river Serchio approximately 25 kilometres from the walled city of Lucca. Bagni di Lucca is an historic place which was frequented by many British artists and poets as well as European conoscienti who visited the spa and the first casino of Europe. It is in the lush foothills of the Appenines, and is ideally situated for touring Florence, Pisa, Siena and Viareggio. Bagni boasts restaurants, shops and a park as well as tennis courts and a theatre. The nearest coast, where you can enjoy wonderful beaches and swimming in the warm sea, is is an hour's drive. We like to go to Forte di Marmi, where you can see the marble which was used by Michelangelo for his sculpture. Back in Bagni, there is a beautiful, large outdoor public pool two minutes from the apartment where you can buy lunch snacks and drinks in the café overlooking the pool. There are also many places to swim or fish along the local river and an interesting chasm to treck in Orrido di Botri. The whole area is dotted with typical mediaeval Tuscan villages and, during August, there is a whole range of outdoor activities, such as opera, concerts, pageantry and village barbecues which take place in town and the surrounding vicinity.
