Casabasciana is one of the hill villages visible on the opposite side of the valley from Casale di Clio – they know how to have a good time!

Do you dream of moving to Italy to live?; maybe you are already starting to think seriously about the possibility – or even starting to make plans. If Tuscany is on your radar – perhaps the glorious Garfagnana, or another area with wooded hills and mountains criss-crossed by paths and ancient mule tracks, valleys with clear rivers and streams, and timeless villages with traditional seasonal celebrations – then consider coming here to experience life ‘in the hills’.

As well as getting out and enjoying the countryside, you can relay here and browse the several books on the shelves that deal with buying property in Italy, house restorations, and life in Italy (yes, we do have a copy of Under the Tuscan Sun!). This is an area where many non-Italian expats have created first and second homes; you might hear their voices in the local restaurants and bars and there are active social media groups that can also provide local tips and information.

Bagni di Lucca swimming poolhas a perfect setting!
Bagni di Lucca’s public swimming pool, reachable by bus, bicycle, or hiking, is not far away for that pleasurable ‘day off’! Casale di Clio is up in the hills in the background.

If you are considering a Move to Italy, then our Location page provides enough information to give you an idea of whether this area/region/type of countryside/environment might be for you – though you will only know for real by spending a week or two here!
