Location

Vallico di Sotto, Toscana, Italy

Garfagnana is located in the northern tip of Tuscany in the Lucca province and is approximately one hour drive from Pisa airport.

The farmhouse is situated less than a kilometre from the village of Vallico di Sotto which is in the commune of Fabbriche di Vallico in the Val di Turrite, a tributary to the Serchio river in the Garfagnana across from the city of Barga. The farmhouse is in the national park 'Parco Naturale delle Alpi Apuani' which covers the mountain range between the Garfagnana valley and the coast of the Riviera delle Versilia. As well as innumerable villages, the towns of Barga, Castelnuovo and Bagni di Lucca are nearby and the natural features of the Grotto di Vento (wind caves) the Orrido di Botri (gorge), Carrera marble and the Prato di Fiorito (Field of Flowers). The Tuscan cities of Lucca, Siena, Florence, Pistoia, and Pisa are within an easy drive as is the Versilian coast. There are activities in the area such as walking, pony trekking, canoeing and a visit to Pinnochio at Collodi. There is a wide choice of traditional reasonable priced Tuscan restaurants nearby.

TIPS - Eat your main meal at lunchtime, local trattorias will usually charge 10 Euro (£9) for a three-course lunch including wine, water and coffee (pranzo di lavoro). Or why not pack a picnic and try the range of breads, cheeses and cured meats. Drink at the cafe counter! Coffee and soft drinks taken standing up at the counter instead of at a table are half the cost. Train travel is still extremely good value. There are excellent connections from the local town to nearby Lucca, Pisa, Florence or the Cinque Terre on the coast. Good wine is available from a local wine merchant at excellent value for money. The Garfagnana region is famous for local produce such as pecorino cheese, farro, porcini mushrooms and polenta. There is a large supermarket in Gallicano and many local markets which sell clothes, flowers, pottery, hardware, carpets, shoes, leather goods and gifts and well as fruit, vegetables, meat and cheeses. Shops close between 1pm and 4pm and are open until around 7pm.

In general the climate in Tuscany is very mild with little difference between the different provinces. However the coast and valleys are hotter in summer than the hilly areas. Usually summers in Tuscany are hot with little or no rain. April and May are milder and rainier but there are still plenty of dry, sunny days. July and August are the hottest months. Spring can be one of the most rewarding times to visit, average temperatures are warm and comfortable. It can however be one of the wettest seasons but normally by May rain is rare and the days are longer with up to 10 hours of daylight. Summer in Tuscany is usually hot and sunny with pleasant evenings for 'al fresco' dining. Humidity levels can get high, especially in the cities. Throughout the months of July and August there are many 'festas' held in the small villages where you can eat and drink to your heart's content for a minimal amount and they are a truly memorable way to experience the real heart of Tuscany.
