Campiglia Alta is another area of Bagni di Lucca I was unaware of until recently. The turnoff is on the road from La Villa to San Cassiano.
It is really just a collection of houses in a gorgeous setting.
A peaceful tree lined road takes you up the mountain.
I was there in late spring. Everything was bright green.
The views are fabulous and the silence is wonderful.
…a special place to live.
I wish I was in Bagni di Lucca right now to see the excellent umbrella installation in the main street of La Villa.
I have gathered some great photos taken by those who are there to share the colourful display. Thank you Liz and Alan, Sheila and Marco Pistolozzi. (If I missed anyone, please let me know)
Top marks to those who organised the event.
The mayor was on hand to initiate the celebrations.
The lucky children of San Cassiano and nearby had a great day at the Campo Sportivo. Lucky for us photographer Paul Davies was on hand to take photos.
Congratulations to the organisers…it was a fun day for all concerned.
I spotted a herd of goats out with their dogs and owner walking on the hill beside San Cassiano.
I hope these scenes continue to be part of life in Bagni di Lucca.
One day I would like to go to the Fish and Chip festival in Barga.
…have some fish and chips for me.
There is another exhibition coming up in La Villa, and an event for children in San Cassiano.
There is always something interesting happening in the area.
Da Mamo is a friendly family run restaurant in La Villa, just off Via Umberto, near the entrance to Hotel Europa. The interior is bright and cheerful.
They do excellent seafood.
…and vegetable sformato.
