Colourful Casoli

Casoli sits 586 metres above sea level on the edge of a steep cliff over the Lima River. It is 13 kilometres from La Villa, the centre of Bagni di Lucca. Take the Brennero towards Abetone and cross the lovely Ponte Maggio and follow the narrow, winding road to the village.

There is a car park at the entrance to Casoli, in front of the bar/cafe, which wasn’t open on the day I was there.

Not far away is a lovely little church, and beside it the mule track to the next village.

The old washing area is still there, but no longer used.

Come for a walk through Casoli.

There are a couple of gorgeous B&Bs in the village.

I absolutely love the climbing roses at the entrance of this beautiful accommodation.

The views from Casoli are spectacular.

Every one of Bagni di Lucca’s villages has something special to offer…don’t miss Casoli. I hope to find the restaurant open on my next visit. I have heard good reports.

  1. Bagni di Lucca has so many lovely villages that it would be hard to decide which one is the prettiest. Great photos, Deb!
