Campanne 3. This apartment is on a lower part of the property, and the entrance can be reached from the garden to the right, following a short path leading to a private terrace. At the end of a small courtyard, one step up is the entrance to the apartment. Since the terrace is built upon a protruding part of the hill, it is protected by a wooden fence. The entrance leads to a large room with a living area and a dining area. Also here we find a comfortable bed couch and a characteristic Tuscan fireplace. The dining area contains a gas-stove, a fridge and an oven. In front of the kitchen, a few steps higher, a door leads to a small courtyard in shape of a horseshoe. To the left of the kitchen, up one step, is a short hallway with door to a single bedroom, and, up one step, at the end of the hallway is a bathroom with washbasin, WC, and shower niche. To the left of the fireplace, up four steps is a landing from which doors lead to a double bedroom, a single bedroom, and a bathroom and shower.
The internet access is at the pool and not in the apartments.
Parking is in front of the garden. Towels and bed linen are included (not pool towels) and changed weekly. Cleaning before and after visit only. Cot and highchair available on request.

Although there is train service to Barga-Gallicano (about 10 km from the property) we would suggest that a car is essential.
