“This was a lovely swap. A tranquil location with wonderful local restaurants. Chris and Adrian were fabulous hosts who helped us discover a few local gems that otherwise we would have missed. We would definitely return and hope to next year. Thanks again both. Tina ”
“We had a such a fantastic holiday in Christopher & Adrian's home! They were so kind and generous with us. We felt warm and welcomed. Their home is a total delight, full of charm in the most beautiful area! Wish we had more time, we'd love to come back! We cannot recommend it enough! Thank you so very much for your hospitality! Best wishes Alana, Naina & Jonas”
“Christopher and Adrian were perfect guests. The apartment was spotless, and they even left a little thought for us. I would have them back anytime.”
Where is it?
In the Province of Lucca, La Roccia is close to Celle dei Puccini, one time home of the Puccini family, and the beautiful hill village of Pescaglia, perched at the top of a steep hillside.
Bordered by the forested Appenines to the east and the Apuan Alps to the west, the Garfagnana area is one of alpine meadows, lush hills, rivers and gorges, making it ideal for walking and hiking.
The Medieval and Renaissance, walled city of Lucca is only 18 kilometres away, while Pisa (45 minutes) and Florence (75 minutes) are close enough for day trips.
The smart beach resorts of Forte dei Marmi, Lido di Camaiore and Viareggio are only a short (45 minutes), but stunning drive across the Apuan Alps.
The historic, hilltop cathedral town of Barga (20 minutes) and Puccini’s favourite Torre del Lago (45 minutes) have wonderful music and opera festivals throughout the spring and summer.
