First, Mods please let me know if this isn't appropriate, but I thought it might be of interest to Salonistas...
My father-in-law owns a house in Tuscany which he rents occasionally to vacationers. It's just outside a tiny hilltop village which is located between Viareggio and Lucca in the foothills of the Appenine Alps.
It sleeps 6-8, has an inground pool, maid service, cooking on demand, and acres of olive groves. Really a nice spot that he had restored from the ground up.
For the past few years I've kept a bike over there to ride when we get the chance to spend time there, and I can vouch that it's some of the nicest riding you'll do anywhere, with roads that have featured in recents Giros, as well as the annual G.P. Camaiore. Not to mention the food, the beaches, etc.
If you're interested, please PM or email me and I can give you more particulars and put you in touch with my F-I-L. It would be perfect for multiple couples to go in together on for a week or two; non-cyclists have easy access to beaches, Florence, Pisa, etc. and there's a world-class Italian cooking school nearby as well.
