Lanciole is situated in the northern part of Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. The village is positioned very centrally; only 15 min. from Pescia, 60min. from both Pisa and Florence airports, 35 min. from Lucca and about 45 min. from the nearest beach. The skiing area Abetone is 45 min. away from the house. We visited Abetone in February 2007 and we can highly recommend it due to the non-heavy snow and good lifts with minimal lineups.

Lanciole, Tuscany - Italy

By car or airplane

Lanciole is central for the popular excursion spots in northern Tuscany. Lanciole is situated directly in between the airports of Pisa and Florence where you can often find cheap flights. It takes about 60 minutes by car to drive to either of the two airports from the house. If you travel by airplane we recommend that you rent a car as it makes it much easier to get to all the small villages where you will find the authentic Tuscany. It is a very good idea to bring a GPS from home. However, it is possible to get to the house by train to Pescia and then bus to Lanciole.

By most airports it is possible to rent a car. Check when you buy your flight as there might be a package deal. We have often got good offers from Sixt and AutoEurope. Last time we rented a car through Supersaver and got a really good deal. Be aware that you most often have coverage through your regular insurance and don’t need to take out another. Ask your insurance company or your Mastercard provider to what extent you are covered.

The house is about 15-20 minutes from Pescia, in the direction of the skiing area Abetone, in an area that is also called “The Tuscan Switzerland” due to its magnificent nature.

When you come from the highway (autostrada) A11 Florence-Pisa, take the exit Chiesina Uzzanese after Montecatini and drive in the direction of Pescia. Follow the river through the city towards Abetone. We recommend that you stop in Pescia to pick up some groceries in one of the big supermarkets..

After Pescia and 700 meters after Pietrabouona make a left turn and follow the road for about 12 minutes until you arrive in Lanciole. Make a stop by the spring of the village. The gate to The Lance Castle, as the former owner named it, is right across from the spring. It is most often possible to park on the street down in front of the house.
