The Tuscany region

The Tuscan Region of Italy is well known for its warm balmy summers, beautiful countryside, rolling hills, mouth - watering food, and of course its towns and villages, rich with mediaeval architecture…

The Garfagnana region of Tuscany, often known as its ‘Green Lung’ is situated away from the milling crowds that can often be found at the most famous Tuscan locations and is totally unspoilt, remaining untouched by tourism.

The scenery is spectacular, green and mountainous with views of both the Apuane and Appenine mountains at every turn…And, due to the altitude whilst the weather can be very hot, it is always pleasantly cool for sleeping…

The food is usually home made, using home grown produce, and is typically simple and extremely tasty. Prices here remain very reasonable due to the fact that food is prepared with the locals, and not tourists in mind…The local wine is cheap and surprisingly drinkable!

The pace of life is slow and peaceful – spend your days enjoying secluded picnics, swimming in rivers, or watching locals play bocce or ‘cheese throwing’. Visit hundreds of ancient hill top villages, or relax at home basking in stunning scenery.

For ‘townie’ days, visit the mediaeval towns of Barga, Lucca, Castelnuovo, with Pisa and Florence within easy reach too…

This is Olde Worlde Italy.

Camporgiano

The farmhouse is situated above the village of Poggio in the Garfagnana valley circa one hour north of Lucca. Surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and a fruit orchard, you can enjoy the marvellous view of the unspoilt Garfagnana valley and the surrounding green mountains.

The local villages of Poggio and Camorgiano are 2km and 4km respectively from the property, the latter of which has a couple of restaurants and bars, an inhabited castle, supermarket, and small Monday morning market. Both villages have train stations for easy exploring. Castelnuovo, the local market town is around a 10/15 minute drive away, and the mediaeval town of Barga is a circa 30 minute drive.

Take a trip to Pisa in 90 mins and Florence in under 2 hours... The real beauty of the area though is its proximity to two important Protected National Parks, the surrounding mountains and the hundreds of hill top villages where it seems that time has stood still.

"Perfect gateaway"

Villa Franco is a magical place . My friends and I spent a week in this beautiful home nestled among vineyards and fields of barley . The rooms were so fresh despite the searing heat and Franco is an extraordinary host , always available for any request . I recommend everyone to spend a holiday in this enchanting place .

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a lovely time and enjoyed your stay and the scenery!
