The Surrounding Area

'I Cipressi' is in the north of Tuscany, set in the foothills of the Apennines with their covering of acacia, beech, pine and chestnut forests, the Apuan Alps form a dramatic backdrop.

As well as the classical cities, there are the mountains, forests, beaches and sea, all set in the breath-taking Tuscan scenery.

The farmhouse nestles on the hill, overlooking the Serchio Valley, above the village of Calavorno, a mile up a winding wooded road.

Calavorno, just 17 miles from Lucca and 60 miles from Florence, is roughly midway between the historic gems of Bagni di Lucca and Barga, and is therefore perfectly situated to allow easy access to every conceivable type of holiday, not only the classical cities and medieval towns but exquisite ancient hilltop villages, mountains, forests, beach and sea as well as breathtaking scenery.

Being a working valley, the village is ideally placed to cater for your everyday needs and boasts a bakery, friendly bar, trattoria, chemist, tobacconist, grocer, video and photo shop and hairdresser. There is a regular bus service from Calavorno to the next village up the valley, Ghivizzano and beyond. Ghivizzano has a station bringing all tourist towns in Tuscany and beyond into easy reach with an excellent and cheap train service. You are advised however, that a car is still essential for this holiday.
