Location description from owner

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 turnAnd, 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 mindThe 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

Camporgiano

Conveniently situated on the outskirts of the small mountain village of Filicaia, approx 1 hour North Of Lucca. The villa is situated in wonderful mature gardens,and the views from the house are absolutely beautiful, with the garden boasting views over the Serchio Valley, which itself is nestled between the Apennine, and Apuane mountain ranges.In Filicaia itself there are 2 bars, one of which serves pizza at weekends, a small food shop, a bank and a post office.

Less than a 10 minute drive away is the local historic market town of Castelnuovo, with its various bars & restaurants, supermarkets and well-known Thursday morning market. For days when one wishes to explore further afield, the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca is 50 mins/1 hour away.Only a 30 minute drive is the popular mediaeval town of Barga, with its cobbled streets, wealth of restaurants, Cathedral, beautiful architecture, regular music festivals and great views!

Grotta del Vento, the wind caves is a 40 minute drive, and is worth a day out. Pisa, for exploring the tower and of course for the airport is a 90 minute drive, with Florence circa 2 hrs. More locally, there are plenty of opportunities to explore local towns, hill top villages, to walk and picnic, ride horses, fish, zip wire through the trees, visit the local fortress or the National Parks, swim in the river, or simply relax. A good choice for a country/village stay, with some facilities within walking distance!
