Villa Corrado with pool
Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 9
This is a good opportunity to experience a summer holiday in one of the loveliest villages in Tuscany. Casa Corrado is set just above the medieval walled village of Castiglione. From the house and garden there is a great view of the ancient Castello and walled village, and the dramatic mountains beyond.
In 2011 Castiglione was voted the nicest village in Italy. The walled village is strategically situated in the spectacularly scenic area known as the Garfagnana, arguably the most beautiful part of all Tuscany. Castiglione has a number of bars and shops, and 2 restaurants all within 300 metres of the villa.
There are 5 bedrooms in the villa, which is perfect for groups of family and friends. Downstairs, at the ground level with access through the internal garage, there is a large double bedroom with easy access to a bathroom with handrails, a low sink and a wheel-in shower with a seat and rails. There is also a twin room downstairs.
On the first floor there is a main door which leads into a roomy lounge with a 10 seat dining room table. For colder periods there is a cosy open wood fire. The lounge has French doors to the large balcony, which is a feature throughout the villa. The kitchen has easy access to the balcony through a French door.
Also on the first floor there is a lovely matrimonial room with a French door which leads to its own balcony with views over the pool and the beautiful countryside beyond. There is a double room and a single room which also has a door which goes down to the pool and solarium.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is the most popular region of Italy, famous for its wonderful climate, landscape, and art treasures. The famous "art" cities of Florence, Sienna and Lucca are huge attractions, whilst the culinary tradition is there to be savoured.
Castiglione di Garfagnana
Castiglione is an ancient, strategically placed garrison town with a 10C church and lovely old buildings. The old town walls, streets and alleys are full of atmosphere, and there are little shops and bars. The views of the surrounding countryside are amongst the best in all of Tuscany.
The area is well known for its excellent value cooking, using the best of local ingredients. A typical set lunch with 4 choices of pasta course, and 4 choices of main course costs only 10 Euros inclusive of bread, wine and coffee.A typical evening main course costs 8-12 euro, ansd pizza 5 euro. It is possible to have a multi-course traditional Sunday lunch or dinner with ample wine, coffee and liquors for less than 25 Euros.
There is an excellent pizzeria only 200 metres walk from the house, and a fine little restaurant within the village walls.
Garfagnana is the best area in Tuscany for walking. We have links with an outdoor activities company who offer guided walks and climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and world class gorge walking. The local market town of Castelnuovo with good shops and restaurants is only 4 miles away.
Good inexpensive horse riding stables are only 15 minutes walk.
Inexpensive skiing is available at Casone, 16kms drive.
