Castelnuovo di Garfagnana farmhouse description

Restored only 6 years ago, Casa Quinilio is a luxurious old house in a spectacular position just below the lovely old walled village of Castiglione. A private pool and lovely garden offers complete privacy with open sunny views of the Garfagnana valley and the beautiful Appenine and Apuane mountains. It's only a 10 minutes walk to the centre of the village, with its' restaurants, shops, and bars.
In 2012 Castiglione, which is a classic hilltop fortified medieval Tuscan village, was voted as one of the nicest villages in Italy.

The big house has 4 traditional bedrooms furnished with good taste and quality. There are 2 doubles and 2 twin bedrooms, sleeping 8 people.
The very attractive living room has interesting furnishings, with access from it to a quiet balcony.

The fully equipped modern kitchen comfortably seats 8 people.

The 4 bathrooms are luxurious and conveniently positioned two en-suite

The sunny garden is on all sides of the house, making it peaceful and safe for children to play in and explore. There is easy access from the house to a shaded outdoor table, and you can also relax in the other garden chairs and loungers.

The bespoke eco-pool has been designed to to complement the surrounding area, with the extra benefit of being consistently 2-3 degrees warmer than conventional pools.

The house has an English speaking manager who will be happy to help with any problems.

                          Garfagnana is 'Hidden Tuscany' at its best. With its stunning scenery it is the best area in Tuscany for walking and outdoor activities. We have close ties with an outdoor activities company who offer many international class adventures.

                          Castelnuovo, the nearby market town, has many restaurants, cafes, bars, supermarkets and all other types of shops. There is a tourist information office and a weekly market selling a wide variety of fashion, household goods, flowers, fruit and vegetables.

                          There are restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk from the villa. An excellent shop/bar, where you can buy decent wine on draft and excellent local organic produce, is 10 minutes walk. A small market operates weekly.

                          Mountain biking, hill walking and horse riding are all available locally. The stables are 30 minutes walk.
