Description

This is a good opportunity to experience a summer holiday in one of the loveliest villages in Tuscany. Casa Corrado is set just above the medieval walled village of Castiglione. From the house and garden there is a great view of the ancient Castello and walled village, and the dramatic mountains beyond.

In 2011 Castiglione was voted the nicest village in Italy. The walled village is strategically situated in the spectacularly scenic area known as the Garfagnana, arguably the most beautiful part of all Tuscany. Castiglione has a number of bars and shops, and 2 restaurants all within 300 metres of the villa.

The new villa is built in the traditional Tuscan design, with the main living area on the upper floor. The villa has been fully adapted to assist wheelchair users, with an internal lift and numerous other aids.

There are 5 bedrooms in the villa, which is perfect for groups of family and friends. Downstairs, at the ground level with access through the internal garage,

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is the most popular region of Italy, famous for its wonderful climate, landscape, and art treasures. The famous "art" cities of Florence, Sienna and Lucca are huge attractions, whilst the culinary tradition is there to be savoured.

Castiglione di Garfagnana

Castiglione is an ancient, strategically placed garrison town with a 10C church and lovely old buildings. The old town walls, streets and alleys are full of atmosphere, and there are little shops and bars. The views of the surrounding countryside are amongst the best in all of Tuscany.

The area is well known for its excellent value cooking, using the best of local ingredients. A typical set lunch with 4 choices of pasta course, and 4 choices of main course costs only 10 Euros inclusive of bread, wine and coffee.A typical evening main course costs 8-12 euro, ansd pizza 5 euro. It is possible to have a multi-course traditional Sunday lunch or dinner with ample wine, coffee and liquors for less than 25 Euros.

There is an excellent pizzeria only 200 metres walk from the house, and a fine little restaurant within the village walls.

Garfagnana is the best area in Tuscany for walking. We have links with an outdoor activities company who offer guided walks and climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and world class gorge walking. The local market town of Castelnuovo with good shops and restaurants is only 4 miles away.

Good inexpensive horse riding stables are only 15 minutes walk.

Inexpensive skiing is available at Casone, 16kms drive.
