Casa Polidori Apartments
Località Polidori, 4
Filicaia 55031 LU
Our village, Filicaia, fails to make an appearance on many maps, even some maps of Tuscany. It is on the SS 445 in the Val di Serchio, roughly equidistant between the market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana and the smaller town of Camporgiano, about one hour’s drive from Lucca to the south or Aulla to the north.
Alternatively, there’s a train that runs pretty regularly between Lucca and Aulla which stops at the station in Castelnuovo. From there Casa Polidori is about 10 minutes by taxi. The coast at Viareggio or Forte di Marmi is about an hour and a half away over a mountain road.
We suggest you'll get more out of the area if you have a car. Whilst there is a general store 30 minutes walk uphill (a good aerobic workout), and an occasional bus going into Castlenuovo, it would be a shame not to have the means to explore the beautiful valley at will.
