The Area

Not sure which location will suit you?

Here at the Italian Property Gallery we understand the importance of finding a good location before searching for properties. Having said that, you might find it difficult to decide which is your favourite part of Italy!

We truly believe that this is the best part of Tuscany to buy in as it has the best value for money with a Tuscany address.  It may not have the kudos of Chianti but it is a living, working place with restaurants open all year round.

Within a few kilometres of our properties there are less well known treasures however, your property could be about an hour away from everything you could want.

Florence is a little over an hour, it houses wonderful exhibitions as well as having amazing shops and boutiques.

Pisa is even closer, people wait a lifetime to see the leaning tower and yet we see it on our way to pick friends and relatives up from the airport!!  You even see it on the way to do the shopping for some of our properties.

Siena is a little further but it is still possible to head there after lunch followed by dinner at Castel Banfi  http://www.castellobanfi.com

The beaches range from the wild Migliorino Beach http://www.parcosanrossore.org or the gorgeously luxurious Forte dei Marmi with its designer boutiques http://www.turismo.intoscana.it/site/en/town/Forte-Dei-Marmi-00001/

If you don’t want to get in the car then why not explore the amzing cycling routes, bridleways, and footpaths in our hills which, I am told are way more beautiful than the Lake District.

Bagni di Lucca was always known for the waters, however, in the last few years there has been an explosive interest in the extreme sports on the Rivers Lima and Serchio.

Why not try white water rafting with

or go to one of the only two ‘Go-Ape’ style advernture parks over a river

Gentler options would be horseback riding in Tereglio http://www.lavecchiafattoriadamarica.com/

or nearer Lucca

This is a place you will never outgrow, it is full of music when your body can no longer deal with the extreme sports.  Many villages have a brass band or a choir.  It is one of the best ways to get to know your Italian nieghbours and become part of this exciting country’s lifestyle.
