Casa La Pace Bed & Breakfast
Casa La Pace Bed and Breakfast is located in Ghivizzano in northern Tuscany's Serchio Valley. “La Pace” means “peace” and we know that your stay at our B&B will be a tranquil respite from the larger cities crowded with tourists. Casa La Pace is in the Serchio valley, the heart of the Garfagnana, a fertile land of wild terrain, charming Medieval villages, and delicious Italian food and wine.
Casa La Pace Bed and Breakfast is in the village of Ghivizzano. Ghivizzano belongs to the municipality of Coreglia Antelminelli in the province of Lucca. The first historical document that mentions Ghivizzano dates to A.D. 983. The village is characterized by its cobblestone streets, its vaulted fortification walls, and a castle and guard tower by Castruccio Castracani, noted Lord of Lucca.
Ghivizzano is located in the Serchio Valley and borders the Garfagnana. The Serchio Valley lies between two mountain chains, the Apuan Alps and the Apennines. It is a picturesque valley of verdant hills covered in oak and chestnut trees. The Serchio River, which carved the valley, begins in the Garfagnana, a mysterious region of rugged mountains, grassy slopes, and mysterious forests. The valley is populated with hundreds of villages, sprinkled on mountain tops and steep hillsides, and hidden in secret valleys and crags. These villages still reflect their medieval origins, a time when each town was its own fiefdom and was controlled and protected by a powerful lord. Until recently, the Serchio Valley was ignored by the outside world, leaving most villages almost untouched. A stroll down the narrow alleys and cobblestone streets is a walk into the past.
The Serchio Valley, now a short drive from Lucca, was historically a remote, untamed territory. This isolation is reflected in its unique cuisine, a delicious mix of wild and cultivated ingredients. Today, the Serchio Valley, with its natural beauty, is a destination for visitors who want to explore history, enjoy wonderful local cuisine, and experience the 'true' Italy.
Casa La Pace has been beautifully renovated and offers all of the latest conveniences, including Internet access. Each of our four guest rooms has its own private bathroom. Our breakfast buffet includes cheeses from the Garfagnana, fresh-baked pastries from the local baker, and fresh fruits and juices.
We are an easy drive from Lucca, Florence, or Pisa. If you are travelling by train, Casa La Pace is a short stroll from the Ghivizzano train station. Ghivizzano is 30 minutes by train from Lucca and less than an hour from Pisa Airport.
Experience the real Italy at Casa La Pace. Like so many of our guests, you will hate to leave!
