Property description

This 3 bedroomed, 19th Century restored Villa is in the beautiful Garfagnana region of northern Tuscany. Closeby there are panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, and the proximity to villages, towns and the magnificent cities of Lucca, Pisa and Florence make this a perfect location for savouring the delights of Tuscany.

The lovely shaded mature garden and private pool make this an excellent spot for families or a group of friends.

With only a five minute walk to an excellent, great value restaurant and bar, nothing could be more relaxing. The quality of local produce and excellent home cooking makes this restaurant popular with Italians from all over the area.

The owner can also arrange for special menus to be cooked for you at the house.


Local Activities:: Horseriding, walking, gorge walking, mountain biking are all available nearby.

A trip to Forti di Marmi, a fashionable coastal resort is a lovely day trip.

Exploring the local medieval villages of Cascio, Eglio and Sassi transport you into another time. Nearly all surrounding villages have themed festivals full of local colour, music, performances and of course, food.

The Oricciella National park and nature reserve is also nearby and has botanical gardens, interactive nature museum, mountain goats, deer and rare birds as well as stunning walks and a restaurant.

There are local caves to explore, medieval castles and fortresses as well as large villas and gardens of the former Italian Medici aristocracy.

The tourist information office in nearby Castelnouvo (2km) provides details of all of these attractions.

Garfagnana is famous for its' great value food, cooked in a simple , rustic style. You can eat a full lunch with wine and coffee for 9-10 euros, and in the evening a main course typically costs 7-10 euros.
