Further details indoors

The house is set up as follows. On the ground floor there's a large room, combining kitchen, living and dining room. The kitchen corner has an electric oven, microwave, a fridge-freezer and a dishwasher. The living room has a 32in satellite TV, DVD player and hi-fi. You should bring your satellite TV smart card: the decoder supports every code system except NDS. The ground floor also has a bathroom and lumber room.

The first floor has three bedrooms (two large, one small). Two of the bedrooms access a large roof-terrace with lovely views. There’s a further (large) bathroom on this floor.

The main villa (accommodates 7) has a small dependence (accommodates 2) made from a lovely stone antique metato, composed of a spacious bedroom and an en-suite bathroom. During July and August only rental of both villa and dependence is possible (9 guests). During the rest of the year you can rent just the villa if you wish.

Tuscan wines and in particular wines from the best producers of the Colline Lucchesi are available for guests to buy from the showcase in the living room.

Further details outdoors

This Lucca villa rental combines all the convenience of being near town (Castelnuovo Garfagnana) with the quiet of the country. From the roof-terrace you gaze upon a superb natural landscape: the peaks of the mountains, including the Uomo Morto (literally 'dead man', this is a peak that looks like a man's face in repose). And there is the church tower of Sassi, a tiny hamlet clinging to the rocks. In autumn the trees turn gold and in winter the mountains are covered with a blanket of snow.

You reach this country house to rent by passing through a chestnut wood. At the entrance you immediately see the house, entirely re-built in 2002-2003 in the typical country style of Tuscany’s Garfagnana. Surrounding the house is an estate of 25 acres, great for families with children. You’re within the Apuan Alps national park of course, so you may – if you’re lucky – glimpse squirrels and deer. Take a refreshing dip in the 12 x 6 metres swimming-pool with water-chute, or take the sun on the surrounding sundeck.

Table tennis and football, bikes, children swings in the gardens .

Nice fresh patio with outdoor table

Pizza oven (wood provided)

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is famous for its beautiful scenery and for its architecturally stunning towns. Six Tuscan sights have been made UNESCO protected sites: the historical centre of Florence, the historical centre of Siena, the square of the Cathedral of Pisa, the historical centre of San Gimignano, the historical centre of Pienza and the Val d'Orcia. All of these are well worth a visit.

The town of Lucca, only 40 minutes far from this rental villa, with its ancient walls (ring of 4 km around the historic centre)and its art masterpieces in every corner , is a must see for people who want to visit this region.

Castelnuovo di Garfagnana

Rich in history and environments still untouched, Garfagnana is a heaven to all those who love nature. Hidden between the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Emilian Appennines, intersected by the river Serchio, it is dotted by small towns and villages where ancient traditions live on.

Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is the main market town of the Garfagnana region . The whole region is incredibly uncontaminated , colloquially known as the ‘national park of Tuscany’, and this villa close to Castelnuovo di Garfagnana places you right in the heart of the region. The terracotta roofs of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana provide a beautiful contrast to the green of the thick pine woods that carpet the Apennine hills and the Apuan Alps.

In Castelnuovo Garfagnana (just 2,5 km from this rental villa) you find all kinds of shops, restaurants, tourist informations etc...

Nearby

Do not miss a visit to Barga (15 km from Castelnuovo) known as "the most scottish town in Italy" because of strong emigrations in the past century, located on a hill dominating the Serchio River valley; Lucca (40 km) Orecchiella park (stunning gardens, mountain paths, bears cage etc...), Vagli lake , Bagni di Lucca (famous for the thermal spa) little mountain villages like Campocatino...

Sports :

biking, golf (Golf club San Romano Garfagnana), adventure park for children (Selva del Buffardello), trekking , horse riding, fishing, tennis courts in Castelnuovo Garfagnana etc...

We recommend you to visit the nice little villages of Garfagnana (especially Campo Catino, near Vagli) with their stone houses and quiet, they'll give you an idea of the slow and healthy life of yesterday. Don't forget to taste the food specialities of Garfagnana .You have to try the excellent home-made cheeses and hams, the products made of chestnut flour: "castagnaccio", "necci", "polenta di neccio" and the classical roast chestnut in October and November.

If you are fond of mountain excursions or you are simply looking for relax in the country , you are in the right place.
