Location description from manager

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 turn…And, 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 mind…The 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

Fosciandora

The property is situated circa 1 hr north of Lucca high in the hills of Garfagnana Northern Tuscany. The rural location/views/walking opportunities are the real attraction of this property but there are plenty of restaurants and bars in the market town of Castelnuovo - 12 min drive and also in medieval Barga which is a short drive away.

There is a small bar/shop for basic necessities in two of the closest villages (5 mins in car), and there is a restaurant just over a 5 min drive too.

We can arrange a personal chef for those evenings when one doesn't wish to drive, or just walk one minute up the hill to be served delicious food al fresco with a mountain backdrop!

“Peace, tranquility and stunning views in Garfagnana”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2015

Our family have been regular visitors to Garfagnana for many years and this was our fourth stay at Cottage Vallecchia (Laura). The cottage itself is fully self-contained on the ground floor and offers ample privacy from the cottage above. The inside living space, kitchen and bedrooms are all comfortable, spacious and well equipped although for us, the real highlight is the wonderful terrace and loggia from where the views are simply stunning. On several occasions, our hosts arranged for Italian banquet or pizza nights provided by local chefs at very reasonable prices and prepared in the outdoor pizza oven. Again, these were a real highlight of our stay and a wonderful way to spend an evening being catered for in relaxed surroundings. The pool is situated to slightly higher ground, surrounded by grape vines and also enjoys spectacular views across the valley below and up towards nearby Treppignana. The area itself is generally very picturesque and has many nearby towns and villages to explore all with excellent good value local cuisine.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you have enjoyed your various stays at this beautifully located property and that you loved the views. The pizza nights and Italian food evenings always go down well when booked and almost everyone says it is a highlight of their stay... We hope to see you again soon. Thanks again, Lorraine at tuscan-retreats

“Love this place!”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2014

This was our third time here and we all still love it. Easy to get to Pisa, Florence and even Siena for the day and then get back and relax by the gorgeous pool. Of course the friendly locals make you feel at home, but the view are equally inviting! Nothing negative to say - a little piece of paradise (as long as you can cope with narrow, windy, precipitous roads and mad Italian drivers but that just adds to the fun for us!)
