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.
Someone has been busy chopping wood.
…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.
There are views up to Casabasciana.
…and across to Brandeglio.
