San Lorenzo - Le Fontanacce

Agriturismo with pool, in the middle of nature, with views on olive groves and chestnut woods. The property consists of Casa Grande (four apartments) and Casa Piccola (detached). It is a magnificent place to come back after a long day of being a tourist in Lucca or Florence; you can rest comfortably along the pool and enjoy the sun going down only around nine p.m. Of course in the day-time you can also look for the shadow; there are several pergola's on the premises. The pool (chloorfree) has got sunbeds, parasols, a changing cubicle and a solar shower. In the evening it is enlightened.

The surroundings

Le Fontanacce is situated in San Lorenzo, not far from the ten early-medieval villages known as the 'Castella'-villages, along the valleys 'Val di Torbola' en 'Val di Forfora'. Recently, in order to conserve its historical character, the whole region was designated protected area and therefore no new building construction is allowed. The landscape is outstandingly beautiful, with hills and mountains densely wooded with chestnut and pine, olive groves and fruit trees. As well as asphalt roads, all these villages are connected by footpaths for walking holidays and have all been clearly charted by the 'Valleriana Trekking'. The height of this mountain landscape varies from 100 m to the Battifolle at 1106 m and is known as the 'Valdinievole'in the province of Pistoia and in the heart of Tuscany. Down in the valley (6 km) is Pescia. There is a ski-resort in Abetone (60km) and there are beach-resorts at Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore (40km). Nearer at hand is the walled city of Lucca and the thermal bath/spa centre Montecatini Terme, which also offers an 18-hole golf course. Within easy reach, too, there are several swimming pools, tennis courts, pony trekking and many excellent and inexpensive restaurants specialising in regional dishes and good wines.

How to get there

San Lorenzo is at a distance of 5 min. from Pietrabuona and 10 min. from the small market town of Pescia. Travelling time by car or train from Pescia to Florence or Pisa is plm. 1 hour. Both cities have an international airport and possibilities of carrental.
