Castelnuovo di Garfagnana farmhouse description
Once the residence of a noble family, the Villa Bertagni nestles in 60 acres of fields, forest and hills with spectacular views. Villa Bertagni has been restored with unique qualities that defy easy description: Passing the pool, fountain and 18th century grotto with a baroque style garden leading into the Villa with a grand Baronian Hall. 28 columns and arches form a gallery surrounding the ground and first floor, with mellow light filtering through a frosted glass ceiling embraced in wrought iron giving a feeling of sheer opulence and magical spell of extraordinary tranquility. The Villa is ideal for weddings, banqueting, or other grand occasions. Catering on request. The Villa has its own helicopter landing facility and supply of fresh spring water. In its prime, the Estate was totally self sufficient, with farmhouses used for making cheese, honey, a trout farm, animal storage and vineyards. It is said that the Villa was built on solid, granite rock where there was once a house dating back to Roman times. All set amidst the beautiful "Apuane Alpe" nature park, famous for the funghi porcini and wild game during the autumn months.
