Farmhouse / 2 bedrooms / sleeps 4
Recently restored, stone built Tuscan farmhouse dating back to 1872 which recently featured in a book publication because of its historical and vernacular architecture. There are original beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and chestnut wood doors, shutters and window frames. It is set between the Apuane and Appenine mountain ranges in a private, tranquil and rural location and is less than 15 minutes drive from the nearest medieval, prosperous and pretty town of Barga, which has all amenities.
The house benefits from stream and mountain views and is surrounded by its own land of flat fields and woodlands and has flower beds of lavender and herbs. The Summer temperatures are ideal with lovely fresh air to help you to relax and enjoy the choice of sun or shade in the gardens and on the terrace. It has its own kitchen garden where fresh produce is available, when in season.
It is well situated for visiting many famous Italian cities such as Lucca, Siena, Pisa, Florence, Rome and Venice, as well as coastal areas, either by car or train. It is a good location for exploring the magnificent Tuscan countryside, mountain ranges and National Parks, as well as the classic hill top towns and villages whilst discovering the culture, charm and natural beauty of the area as well as sampling local produce, cheeses and wines.
