The house is composed of a double entrance, living room, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen that leads onto a panoramic patio to a spring water, salinated pool. There is the large and luxurious main bathroom, second toilet, three bedrooms and two terraces. All the rooms have been furnished with care. Casa Zola is a family friendly house as well as being suitable for couples or a group of friends. Enjoy some peace and quiet while being situated in a gorgeous village where local Italian life meets visitors from all over the world. We are lucky to have a local restaurant walking distance from the house that offers an authentic Italian menu, always fresh and seasonal in a hospitable and friendly atmosphere. Enjoy the Summer festivals, the Lima river, skiing at Abetone mountain ski resort and thermal treatments at the wellness facilities in Bagni di Lucca (15 minute drive). Consider biking, horse riding, walking, hiking, zip-lining and exploring this beautiful corner of Northern Tuscany or a visit to the medieval cities of Lucca, Florence or Siena. We are also within reach of Viareggio on the Versilian coast and the “Cinque Terra” in Liguria if you wish to spend a day at the seaside. Bagni di Lucca offers a weekly outdoor market, many great restaurants, and supermarkets for your shopping. The city of Lucca is around 40 minutes drive from Casa Zola and Pisa airport can be reached in about an hour and a quarter.
