Client Reviews
Villa Saida is within walking distance of the town of Castelnuovo Garfagnana, north of the famous walled city of Lucca – home of the composer Puccini. Sleeping up to 14 people, this villa is perfectly sited to visit historical sights, the coast and the beautiful national parks in the area.

The saltwater swimming pool is set amongst the extensive gardens of the villa and is heated for your comfort. There are breathtaking views from the pool of the surrounding valleys and the Apuane Alps. There are hydro massage jets within the pool and pool furniture and towels are provided.

With its close proximity to 3 National Parks and the Bagni di Lucca thermal baths, Villa Saida really is a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the coast, can all be reached by road or by train from the local train station (2km); this gives you the option of not having to hire a car for your visit.


The Apuane Alps are a favourite place for many outdoor activities such as climbing, mountain biking, hiking, or to go caving and canyoning. Nearby to the villa there are tennis courts and golf courses and, in the winter, there are ski resorts within driving distance.
