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
Poggio is a small mountain village situated approximately 50 mins North Of Lucca, and 8km from the local market town of Castelnuovo, with its various bars & restaurants, and well-known Thursday morning market. Poggio itself has a bar/grocer shop and a train station perfect for exploring those larger towns in air conditioned comfort.
The property is situated in its own extensive grounds/orchards. The views from the house are absolutely beautiful, with the garden enjoying uninterrupted views over the Serchio Valley, which itself is nestled between the Apennine, and Apuane mountain ranges.
A perfect place for walking, fishing or just enjoying the countryside. Lucca is 50 mins away; Barga 40 mins; Pisa 1 hr 20 mins, Florence circa 2 hrs.This is an extremely popular property.

"Ideal place for rest, relaxation and fun."
The house is accessed down a short track with parking outside main gate on a steep hill, so I suggest you drive in forwards and reverse out but make sure you have a good handbrake and no low profile tyres. Hosts are extremely friendly and helpful.
The house is so pretty with many outdoor seating areas. The overhead grape canopy over the outside dining table is so pretty. Magnificent views from the Infinity pool. Fun to be had with the wood barbeque and the best night was making pizzas in the pizza oven.
The house is cool but amply warmed by the wood burning fire in the cooler evenings. Well laid out house especially for 2 families of 4 with large double, 1 twin and a bathroom on each floor. Watch out for the occasional scorpion.
