Villa Cortinella is a completely renovated Tuscan house on two levels.
It is located at the edges of the Lucca plain, in a small and quiet district of Capannori, a strategic position to visit all the attractions in Tuscany.
Bring a car and explore canyons, abandoned villages, the famous historical villas, an exciting adventure park with survival courses and rafting experiences, the amazing old walled city of Lucca, all of these attractions - and much more - are within a few minutes driving!
You can do day trips to Pisa, Firenze, and Cinque Terre.
You need a car as within walking distance there are just a few food and grocery shops, a coin launderette and other villas and houses.
A couple of minutes away the road climbs up the hills and leads you to one of the most beautiful places of Tuscany, crossing the famous historical villas, located at the beginning of the hills.
The villa is not in the hills, you need a car or a bike to go there.
