The house is just 2 km from Camporgiano with its river, castle, weekly market, restaurants, bars and shop. The village also boasts a train station for those days when you wish to leave the car behind, and visit the likes of Lucca; Barga; Castelnuovo; Pisa; Florence and the coast.

The house boasts fantastic views of the unspoilt countryside whatever the time of year. Explore the hundreds of hilltop villages, go walking, horse-riding, bike riding, or try the fishing which is excellent. Swim in the vier, visit the local fortress, see the wind caves, or zip wire through the trees.....

Of course the possibilities for picnics are endless and star gazing at night an experience. Relax with a glass of wine and watch locals play Bocce or be a spectator at the cheese rolling for which the area is famous.

In the autumn join in the local passion of mushroom picking or feast on chestnuts which used to form the staple diet for the locals. Tourism is yet to hit this area and this is truly one of those increasingly rare places in Europe for which this can be said.

Food: Garfagnanan cuisine is fairly simple, but scrumptious, using local fresh produce to prepare dishes, which since cooked for the locals are very cheap! Wine is good and inexpensive.There are numerous restaurants in the area and children are welcome. Provisions can easily be found in local bars/shops and supermarkets.

The locals are very friendly and helpful although not many speak English, take your phrase book. That said, we can always assist with translation when required and the owner is really helpful too!

Bedding and towels are included in the cost of any stay and payment is taken in Sterling or Euros via bank transfer or credit card (using Paypal). All utlities included in price except heating which is payable locally if used. Initial and final clean is included, with a mid stay clean and linen change for a stay of 14 nights. We take a 15% deposit, with the balance payable 8 weeks prior to arrival.

Camporgiano

The property is set 2 km outside of the mediaeval village of Camporgiano which has a shop, bar, restaurants, train station, river, very small weekly market and a privately owned castle. The village also boasts a train station for those days when you wish to leave the car behind, and visit the likes of Lucca; Barga; Castelnuovo; Pisa; Florence and the coast.

The Garfagnana area is green, mountainous and entirely unspoilt. There are breathtaking views at every turn and hundreds of hill top villages to explore.

The house is also circa 1 h from the stunning walled City of Lucca, where cycling around the walls is a must! Barga a beautiful mediaeval town, known for its music, arts and restaurants is a 30 minute drive. The local market town of Castelnuovo is a 15 minute drive. Pisa, with its famous tower is 90 mins away and Florence say 2 hours.

A truly rural holiday, but with plenty of opportunity to explore!

“Great base for family holiday”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2016

This place is great. We rented the whole lot & there's plenty of room to spread out in various shaded spots. The pool is excellent. There are plenty of places to visit (Lucca, marble mines, lakes, castles) although as the roads are winding, give yourself plenty of time to get anywhere. Good cycling terrain - if you like hills (try St Pellegrino in Alpe). There's a really good pizzeria in the centre of the village, and a visit to the Mulin del Rancone at the bottom of the valley is a must. Gabriele & his family are close by & are great help.

Thank you for your review. We are really glad you loved this spacious property and lovely gardens, along with the large pool. We have friends who come regularly to cycle too. I think they are crazy, but they say the cycling can't be beaten.. We also love Mulin del Rancone and tried the 'Taster Menu' last time we went, and we just ate and ate the most delicious food for half the afternoon. Probably the best food I have tasted at such an amazing price! Thanks again for taking the time to review. Lorraine at tuscan-retreats

“Great holyday villa”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2015

We stayed a week in Collaprico with friends and family. The place was great for both the kids and adults. The view was beautiful, the housing was great. Perfect place for a vacation with friends and kids. One of the best houses we have ever rented!

Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed this beautiful spacious place!
