The location on an altitude of approximately 550m, grants a not too warm climate in the summertime (the temperature during the night is almost alsways not higher then 18C°.

THE GARFAGNANA AREA

Someone has called the green island of Tuscany and in fact this valley, but close to important historical towns such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the flamboyant and fashionable Versilia, was closed in itself, living its own history and building a strong identity that still retains. From Garfagnana you can easily reach famous historical centers as Lucca, Pisa and Firenze, as well as the sparkler Riviera della Versilia, La Spezia and le Cinque Terre. Closer, almost a unique part with Valley, Lunigiana, with its castles, Serchio Media Valley, that with its Devil's Bridge (Ponte del Diavolo) in Borgo a Mozzano let start the geographical entrance to the Lucca province mountain area, we share with Alta Versilia a good part of our mountain chain. The Apuan Alps, which divide to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Apennine Mountains to the east, enclosing the valley like a casket. Garfagnana, literally Great Forest, so this valley seemed to its first visitors and even today you will be astonished in front of the extension of its lush forests. Man-planted, cared for and cultivated the chestnut up to 1000 meters above sea level, wild, intricate, finally the beech which go up, over 1700 meters and, year after year, trying to regain the heights of mountains nude.In this immense mass of green appear, almost suddenly, perched on a hill, perched on the high plains that slope towards the river, overhanging on vertiginous cliffs, the many small towns that characterize the Valley. Ruts in the narrow streets, inside the medieval defensive walls, time passes slowly, the rhythms are those of the past, the games of boys the same for centuries, the "workshops" have an antique perfume. the Valley is a real invitation to enjoy a relaxing holiday, relax on the edge of a swimming pool or lying on a fragrant meadow of "pepolino" (wild thyme), silently listening to the sounds of nature that surrounds us. Let yourself be enthralled by this goslow, it will be easy to discover hidden corners of the Valley which offer entirely different aspects to the change of the seasons: the footpath, landscape, Woods, colours every time will be for you a new emotion.
