The old villages

"La Gianna" farmhouse is located in Tuscany on the hills between Viareggio and Lucca in an ancient village called Nocchi in the province of Camaiore.

Reknown in the past as a summer stay for wealthy families, Nocchi finds its origin in the Middle Ages, as it was lying on the "Via Francigena" that was the only way for pilgrims from Northern Europe to reach Rome, centuries after the Roman Empire's decadence. In the village there are beautiful XVII century villahouses whose gardens are rich in very old camellia trees. As a matter of fact Nocchi lies right in the area of Lucchesia where camellias have been grown for centuries. Close to Nocchi there are villages that offer lovely romanic churches, beautiful narrow streets and good restaurants. We mention some of them:

  Camaiore,  Pietrasanta,  La Pieve,  Greppolungo,

  Monteggiori with famous Rotaio Castle,  La Culla,  Santa Lucia,

  Vado, Casoli, Pedona, Torcigliano, Colonnata, Peralla and his castle.
