It is almost time for the next second hand market in La Villa.
The market will be held in the main street of La Villa this Sunday. There will be antiques, collectables and lots of great things.
Casa Tolomei is the beautiful house where Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning stayed when they visited Bagni di Lucca.
It was recently bought by Laura and Andy and they have worked hard to bring the building back to life. Their renovation is remarkable.
In 2016 they finished the upper floor and had B&B rooms available to rent. This year there is a self catering option which includes a suite with 2 bedrooms and bathroom plus the stunning frescoed living room and adjacent kitchen.
For summer the whole upper floor will be available. The rental options will be 2 independent self-catering apartments or the whole floor for larger groups…8 – 12 people.
The lovely garden has an above ground pool, with plans for an inground pool this year.
Italian lessons will also be available at Casa Tolomei.
Casa Tolomei is in Via Umberto I, La Villa. For enquiries and bookings email Laura at …poggilaura@gmail.
I wish I was in Bagni di Lucca right now to see the excellent umbrella installation in the main street of La Villa.
I have gathered some great photos taken by those who are there to share the colourful display. Thank you Liz and Alan, Sheila and Marco Pistolozzi. (If I missed anyone, please let me know)
Top marks to those who organised the event.
The mayor was on hand to initiate the celebrations.
