Sala

Between rain showers I went to see Sala, a Localita of Bagni di Lucca. To get there, follow the sign to Casabasciana from the SS Brennero. Before you get to Casabasciana there is a sign on the right pointing to Sala.

The road into Sala is lovely.

…arriving in Sala.

There is a serious bocce pitch…is that the correct word? It is at the entrance to the town.

Only a handful of people live in Sala, but those who do, look after their little piece of heaven. The houses are all cared for and the gardens are beautiful…come for a walk through the hamlet.

There are a couple of archways leading into the group of houses.

I found a path with a huge cherry tree, laden with almost ripe fruit.

I also found walnut trees, grapes and kiwi vines.

Going through another arch there was a happy tortoise enjoying a bath.

It reminded me a bit of Yoda.

The gardens are thriving under the obvious care of their owners. There are flowers everywhere.

…and across to Brandeglio.

Brandeglio from SalaSala is another delightful part of Bagni di Lucca. I can see why people would love to live here.

  1. Thank you, Debra, for these beautiful photos! I especially love the cherry tree. Didn’t know that Sala was one of the Bagni villages! What a recipe for peace and satisfaction. Norma
