Castelnuovo di Garfagnana

La Sambuca - Situated 1 hour North of the medieval city of Lucca, and 25 minutes North of the market town of Castelnuovo, La Sambuca is a collection of 3 houses nestling in the midst of hills.

The grounds are extensive, and parts of the gardens are used for growing local produce.

Whilst the village has some facilities, the local village of Piazza Al Serchio with its bars, restaurants, supermarket, Tuesday morning market, and Train Station is less than a 5-minute drive away and bread is delivered each morning.

The views from this extremely peaceful site are magnificent - the houses overlook the green and fertile Serchio valley, with views of the Apuane and Appenine Alps.

This really is the perfect location - an ideal place to unwind deep in the countryside, yet close enough to all local amenities, and a convenient base for exploring by car or train.

In high season one can walk to a wonderful restaurant serving home cooked food from local produce. This restaurant is only open weekends outside of July and August
