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


The property is situated circa 1 hr north of Lucca high in the hills of Garfagnana Northern Tuscany. The rural location/views/walking opportunities are the real attraction of this property but there are plenty of restaurants and bars in the market town of Castelnuovo - 12 min drive and also in medieval Barga (20 min drive but new road promised for next yr cutting drive to 10 mins). There is a small bar/shop for basic necessities in two of the closest villages (5 mins in car), and there is a restaurant just over a 5 min drive too.

We can arrange a personal chef for those evenings when one doesn't wish to drive . Airports-Pisa 80 mins; Florence 1hr 50 mins;Genoa 2 hrs 30 mins; Milan 3 hr 15 mins; Bologna 2 hrs 30 mins (care Forli over 3 hrs).
