Villa Talenti / Magnolia


Magnolia consists of a spacious living room and 2 comfortable bedrooms in traditional Tuscan style. It has a brand new, well equipped kitchen with an abundance of sunshine during the morning hours. Quite recently, the apartment was upgraded with an iron wood stove.

The bathroom has twin wash basins, bathtub and a separate shower cabinet.

There is a 36" flat screen with DVD player and a wireless internet connection with a dedicated router in the living room

The laundry room has a washing machine and a tumble drier.

The apartment has a beautiful view over the green hills and the Lima river and offers all the comfort you could wish for.

Bagni di Lucca


Consisting of three main centres, Villa, Ponte a Serraglio and Fornoli, it is surrounded by a constellation of villages and hamlets and the whole area is rich in artistic and natural beauties.

It is somewhat like a climatic mountain resort in spite of its mere 152 meters above sea level. The climate of the valley is characterized by mild winters and pleasant summers.

Rainfall is moderate and the winter snow is usually restricted to high altitudes.

Since the Middle Ages, Bagni di Lucca has been known for the therapeutic, thermal waters that flow from the flanks of a cliff called the Colle di Corsena.

The flora and fauna are typical of the Italian Apennines region: rich forests of pines, oaks, bay leaf, broom, chestnut, beech, hornbeam and fir trees.

The villages are distributed over the valley to the left and the right side of the Lima river. On the bottom of the valley are the main town, La Villa, and the villages of Ponte a Serraglio, Fornoli, Fabbriche di Casabasciana, Isola and Val Fegana.

The villages are all easily accessible from the center (La Villa) by means of good paved road. Many of the ancient mule paths that once connected the villages are still viable and lend themselves to hiking in unique and stunning landscapes.

Almost all of the villages are of medieval origin and are generally located on hilltops overlooking the underlying valleys, preserving precious memoires of the past.

Bagni di Lucca is close to numerous cities and places of touristic interest, such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Siena. It is 42km from the Versilia coast with Viareggio, Marina di Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi, which are among the most renowned seaside resorts of Italy. The ski resort of Abetone is 37km away.

The things to see and actitivites to take part in are countless, from horse trekking in the mountains, hot air ballooning, canyoneering and hiking to lazing in the sun or being pampered at the famous spa of Jean Varraud and Casa Boccella.
I've stayed at many vacation rentals in Italy and elsewhere, and have found that there are some things that owners fail to see. Some rooms are too Spartan, for example, reminding one of a prison cell, and others are too cluttered, often with the owner's personal stuff. Magnolia, in my opinion, offers the perfect middle, with art and decoration that enhances the experience without making you feel you are a guest in Aunt Millie's house.
