Who we are

  1. We are Germana and Nicola, 17 years old. I'm a professional (doctor in agronomy) and we enjoy travelling when able to get away. We have done several home exchanges before, and we have a wonderful experience what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see your country. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our friends via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Italy.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The nearest sizeable village (approx. 10 km) is the beautiful Bagni di Lucca which was one of the most prominent and prestigious health spa locations for distinguished Europeans during the 19th century. In today’s modern spa establishment, Terme, the health spa culture is still very much alive. You will also find nice outdoor swimming pool facilities surrounded by beautiful Tuscan nature. Bagni di Lucca also offers several other activities, e.g. several tennis courts. Banks, post offices, supermarkets and a range of cafes and restaurants are also to be found in the village.

In Abetone, situated approx. 25 km from Vico Pancellorum, you find a large winter sport centre. The centre provides its visitors with a selection of 30 lifts, several of which are gondolas. The peak season is from the beginning of December to the middle of March.

The Garfagnana region is, thus far, one of the least explored tourist areas of Tuscany. Those who are well familiar with Tuscany, characterize this region as the best of the genuine Tuscany. Representing one of the regions many prides, the city Barga is worth mentioning. With its many music festivals, its rich history and cultural heritage the city is well worth a visit.

In Vico Pancellorum you will find that the rest of Tuscany is within a comfortable distance. You can reach most of the places that make Tuscany so unique within an hour. To mention a few; Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the beautiful beach in Versilla.
