The Tuscany region
Garfagnana is 'Hidden Tuscany' at its best. With its stunning scenery it is the best area in Tuscany for walking and outdoor activities. We have close ties with an outdoor activities company who offer many international class adventures.
Castelnuovo, the nearby market town, has many restaurants, cafes, bars, supermarkets and all other types of shops. There is a tourist information office and a weekly market selling a wide variety of fashion, household goods, flowers, fruit and vegetables.
Castiglione di Garfagnana
Castiglione was an important and strategic Florentine influenced town in the middle ages. The towns defensive walls are intact, with a myriad of alleys and narrow streets within them. The views from the village are spectacular, and there are few tourists. In 2012 Castiglione was voted as one of the nicest villages in Italy.
There are 2 restaurants, several bars and shops bar within a few minutes walk from the villa. An excellent shop/bar, where you can buy decent wine on draft and excellent local organic produce, is 10 minutes walk. A small market operates weekly.
Mountain biking, hill walking and horse riding are all available locally. The stables are 30 minutes walk.

Thank you for the fine and comprehensive review. Quintilio is one of our favourite houses and I'm glad you had a great time.
Just a note about the "scorpions" in case people are scared off from visiting this fine house.........they are miniture scorpion-like insects which are very rare. They can give you a nip if disturbed, but they are not poisonous or dangerous in any way! And although there are honey bees and spiders around as you would find in any warm country, there are no mosquitoes in this area which is a great blessing.
