Vico Pancellorum, Garfagnana and the surrounding areas

The property is situated on the edge of a walnut and chestnut forest where you can explore the many trekking, fishing and hunting opportunities in the area. By the river, which is close to the house, you find a roman bridge and a waterfall with crystal clear water – perfect for a swim. Walking here from the house takes 5-10 minutes. You will also find that these surroundings provide a good habitat for mushrooms. Hiking is an activity you will enjoy in this beautiful landscape and due to the many villages that are close at hand.

The Lima river has warmer waters. Walking here from the house with a towel on your shoulders takes aproximately 20 minutes on the Roman road. En route a rather unknown surprise awaits.

Romans and ravioli - Vico Pancellorum

The small village of Vico Pancellorum is typically Tuscan. The houses are built along the steep hillside that leads to one of the tallest mountains in Tuscany. Beautiful houses, small piazzas, narrow alleys and small plantations of grapevines are characteristic features of the village. Vico Pancellorum has two catholic churches from the medieval ages, a grocery store, a coffee shop and a restaurant. With its array of well-prepared dishes, the restaurant draws large crowds from the nearby villages. You will enjoy the creative cuisine of the chef, Enrico and the excellent service of the waitress, Luisa. The menu is open for alterations as the owner, Giovanna, welcomes requests providing you inform the staff well in advance. The local inhabitants are warm, kind and friendly.

Spa, ski, sea or Siena? The surrounding areas and Tuscany

The nearest sizeable village (approx. 10 km away) 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.

Bagni di Lucca also offers several other activities, i.e. several tennis courts. Banks, post offices, supermarkets and a range of cafes and restaurants are also to be found in the village.
