Tuscany is famous for its beautiful scenery and for its architecturally stunning towns. Six Tuscan sights have been made UNESCO protected sites: the historical centre of Florence, the historical centre of Siena, the square of the Cathedral of Pisa, the historical centre of San Gimignano, the historical centre of Pienza and the Val d'Orcia. All of these are well worth a visit.
The town of Lucca, only 40 minutes far from this rental villa, with its ancient walls (ring of 4 km around the historic centre)and its art masterpieces in every corner , is a must see for people who want to visit this region.
Rich in history and environments still untouched, Garfagnana is a heaven to all those who love nature. Hidden between the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Emilian Appennines, intersected by the river Serchio, it is dotted by small towns and villages where ancient traditions live on.
Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is the main market town of the Garfagnana region . The whole region is incredibly uncontaminated , colloquially known as the ‘national park of Tuscany’, and this villa close to Castelnuovo di Garfagnana places you right in the heart of the region. The terracotta roofs of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana provide a beautiful contrast to the green of the thick pine woods that carpet the Apennine hills and the Apuan Alps.
In Castelnuovo Garfagnana (just 2,5 km from this rental villa) you find all kinds of shops, restaurants, tourist informations etc...
Do not miss a visit to Barga (15 km from Castelnuovo) known as "the most scottish town in Italy" because of strong emigrations in the past century, located on a hill dominating the Serchio River valley; Lucca (40 km) Orecchiella park (stunning gardens, mountain paths, bears cage etc...), Vagli lake , Bagni di Lucca (famous for the thermal spa) little mountain villages like Campocatino...

We recommend you to visit the nice little villages of Garfagnana (especially Campo Catino, near Vagli) with their stone houses and quiet, they'll give you an idea of the slow and healthy life of yesterday. Don't forget to taste the food specialities of Garfagnana .You have to try the excellent home-made cheeses and hams, the products made of chestnut flour: "castagnaccio", "necci", "polenta di neccio" and the classical roast chestnut in October and November.
