The position between Lucca and the Lake of Massaciuccoli is ideal for trips in the close town of art or to the well-known beaches of Versilia.
For people who love trekking and mountain bike there is the possibility of reaching picturesque villlages on the nearby hills, from which to enjoy a wonderful panoramic view: Mommio Castello, Corsanico, Bargecchia, Balbano, Pieve a Elici, Montigiano and Gualdo.
But the real attraction of the area is the beautiful little village of Massaciuccoli with ruines of the ancient Roman period. Witnesses of intense activities in ceramics that go back to the second and third century B.C. find place of honour in the municipal museum as well as the rests of baths and Roman Villas. From Massaciuccoli you can reach the panoramic points of Compignano and Aquilata Mountain walking through the wood.
On request, the owners of 'Frantoio del monte' may guide hosts through walks to the nearby hills.
For trekking lovers owners organize excurtions to the Hills of Massarosa.
