The village of Colognola belongs to the municipality of Piazza al Serchio, in the province of Lucca, Tuscany

In the heart of Garfagnana this is a peaceful location, in the midst of the countryside, with many pretty hilltop villages to visit, as well as National Parks, boasting rolling hills and mountains. The Garfagnana is one of the most famous ‘undiscovered’ parts of Italy. It’s a large area of valley and mountain north of Lucca and Pisa, in the northern part of Tuscany. Although mostly rural and little affected, so far, by tourism, the Garfagnana has been creeping onto the itinerary of more adventurous tourists for some years.

It takes about approximately 1 hour to get to Lucca by car or train and about 20 minutes more to Pisa airport. Florence is approximately a 2 hour drive.

The coast (Forte dei Marmi and the Cinque Terre) are just over an hour/2 away by car while the excellent ski resort of Abetone is about 1 hour and 20 minutes’ drive.
