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
Castelnuovo di Garfagnana
Situated on the far edge of the historic village of Gragnanella, just a 5 min drive from the market town of Castelnuovo and 1 hour from the mediaeval walled city of Lucca. The beautiful town of Barga is a 20 minute drive too....
This is a pretty village, with no facilities, but Castelnuovo which is a 5 min drive has bars, restaurants, shops, famous Thursday morning market and a train station for easy exploring.
Despite the village location, there is full privacy at the house and wonderful views over the countryside.
The cottage is a 90 min drive from Pisa and around 1 hr 45 mins from Pisa.

"Beautiful House and surroundings"
I and my girlfriend + in-laws were very content with the house and we had no problems at all during our stay in Gragnanella. The house has a beautiful view across the Garfagnana area. We would recommend everybody to rent this lovely summer house.

"Lovely house, great pool and beautiful views and located in stunning mountainous area of Tuscany"
This was a great house for our family holiday in a lovely and unspoilt part of Tuscany. The pool was beautiful and the loggia great for outdoor living. Situated in a small hill town the house had wonderful views and everything we needed for our stay. A few points to note- there is no garden which you may want with small children; it is situated a long way from the main Tuscan sites so going anywhere takes time-however there is a lot to see locally and Castelnuovo, the nearby large town is charming ; the road up to the village is twisty and the last bit down to the house very steep and narrow- you need to be a confident driver! Finally the house is on a hill and terraced down to the loggia and on to the pool- this is quite steep and not suitable at all for anyone with mobility problems or young children
