About this location
The Tuscany region
The Garfagnana - North Tuscany
According to TripAdvisor this is one of Italy's best kept secrets! Brucciano in Garfagnana can be found in Northwest Tuscany, in the valley of the river Serchio north of Lucca. Starting in the south at Barga, a beautiful and (as yet) unspoiled hill town, the Garfagnana continues up past Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, to the fortress towns of San Romano and Castiglione, ending in the north at Piazza al Serchio and the Parco Naturale dell'Orecchiella.
Within easy reach of Tuscany's more famous sites like Florence, Pisa and Lucca, Garfagnana offers some spectacular scenery and great local cuisine. The area is fantastic for walkers of every ability with well marked tracks through the mountains
Nestling between the magnificent jagged 'marble mountains' of the Alpi Apuane and the beautiful rolling 'spine of Italy', the Apennines, it is truly an area of outstanding natural beauty with matchless hospitality.
Climate of Brucciano - at over 600 metres above sea level, the air is clean and clear. Even in the height of the summer you breathe,
Why this location?
We are a Scottish family with a passion for Italy and in particular Garfagnana, Tuscany. We bought this house in 2001 with a view to spending more time here. I lived in Italy in the early 90's as well as working as a tour guide for 5 years throughout Europe (specialising in Italy). This region in Northern Tuscany was my first choice in location for a thousand reasons - the main one being that I thought it was the most beautiful place I had ever seen! Our children have been holidaying here 2 - 3 times a year from being only weeks old! We would love to share this special place with you and I am always happy to talk about Italy and help you plan your holiday.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
The purity of the air is something you notice only when there are no more coughs or wheezes to be heard from my asthmatic husband and children! The peace and quiet, the views out of every window. The fresh seasonal cooking in the restaurants (porcini mushrooms, wild boar, truffles, home made pasta and their wine that is often included in the price!) are always a gastronomic highlight of our visits. The village is home to only 23 people in the winter but the summer months are filled with friends and relatives of the villagers - home for festivals or to escape the intense heat of the city. We have international friends with Irish, Scottish, English and German neighbours with holiday homes here. There is an outdoor 'Cena' (dinner) every August held in the village square in August.
