Places to visit
Villa Pollinelle is located in Porcari, a lovely village of the “Plain of Lucca”, along the shores of the ancient lake of Sesto, once an important crossroads between Via Francigena and Via Cassia.
Just 20 minutes by car you will find both Montecatini Terme (a renowned Tuscan spa resort) and Lucca, the Medieval city traditionally called the "city of a hundred churches" for the large number of places of worship within the city center, and famous for its imposing tree-lined walls, that can be entirely walkable.
Moreover, Lucca is the venue for several musical and cultural events throughout the year, such as Lucca Summer & Winter Festival e il Lucca Comics & Games.
Beyond Lucca, one of the main tourist attractions of the surrounding area is the presence of countless historic villas, beautifully preserved and absolutely bewitching thanks to the group of gardens, parks, tree-lined avenues and “water games”.
Within 40 minutes by car you can reach both Pisa, the city of the leaning tower, and the Versilia coast with Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta.
Lovers of nature and sports (trekking and mountain biking) cannot miss the opportunity to organize an excursion to Garfagnana, an area rich in natural landscapes, peaks, trails, and ancient villages to discover. Besides the cuisine of this area is based on the aromas and flavors of tradition.
