Pieve di Controne is one of my favourite villages in Bagni di Lucca. It is a little different from some of the others as it has quite a bit of flat land, rather than being perched on the side of a mountain.
There are some lovely cultivated areas.
It has an amazing church with 2 facades.
Pieve di Controne is a collection of mostly stone houses…
…with pretty gardens and fruit trees.
I am always attracted to old doors, especially green doors, and Pieve di Controne has a fine selection.
There is usually a sleepy cat or 2 in the villages.
If you visit Bagni di Lucca take the time to visit some of the mountain villages.
