A lovely court in the centre of the hamlet.

The Vicarage set at the top of the mediaeval hamlet of Lanciole and has its own secluded and peaceful small court on the back, where you can relax, have your hot tub, your garden furnitures, your bbq, and eat outside. The surrounding quiet residential area is in perfect harmony with the necessity to have a relaxing and quite vacation without to be isolated.

There are not busy shops or supermarkets, just a local called Circolo where the village's people work for the others making pizza and other specialities, or serving drinks and ice cream, all just 100 metres away. In just 12 km there are more than 12 mediaevals villages and each one could offer to you a bar, restaurants, farm, pub.

The Parking is easy and close, but the cars can't access directly in front of the house, permitting to the people that live in the historical centre to have quite and silence beeing close to the parking spaces and the bus stop.

The area is a patchwork of mediaeval castles and hamlet, located at the north of Pescia, between Florence and Lucca.
