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.
Sala is another delightful part of Bagni di Lucca. I can see why people would love to live here.
What a gorgeous town, wish I could just pack up and move there.
It is really beautiful. I didn’t know of its existence until recently.
Sala looks awesome – I love it x
Thanks for the virtual visit.
It is a beautiful little place. The gardens are gorgeous.
Beautiful village and so well looked after. Love the tortoise. He almost looks like a statue
Yes, he wasn’t exactly jumping about.
Sala looks so beautiful and tranquil, a hidden gem.
It is lovely, and who knows it is there?
Stunningly beautiful, I do wish to go there! Straight onto my bucket list, thank you!
I was delighted to find this special place.
You went down an enchanted path! Isn’t that gorgeous.
It is a gorgeous place. I love it.
Another beautiful village.
What a peaceful, gorgeous place. I’ve found more inspiration for my future garden.
The gardens are gorgeous. It makes me want to get stuck into mine.
that is so tranquil and beautiful. George M
It is a truly beautiful place.
It looks to be very well cared for by it’s residents, they should be complemented. Think that it is a terrapin not tortoise 🙂
Thanks for the correction. I don’t really know the difference.
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
Isn’t it gorgeous. I didn’t know of the village until recently.
