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
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.
