About the Property

Cottage with private pool, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms sleeping up to 9 . Views!

Rustico Brunello is a newly refurbished traditional stone cottage, which boasts all modern comforts, such as fully equipped kitchen, and beautiful bathrooms, yet retains its rustic feel, with chestnut beamed ceilings, traditional flooring, exposed stonework , large open fireplace, outdoor wood oven and covered loggia for al fresco dining.
Nestled in the countryside 1 hr or so north of Lucca this cottage with own pool, is peacefully located, and boasts the most wonderful views over the mountains... There are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with bath and one with shower) living diner, dining room and kitchen. There is a play area at the back of the house with swings, and at the front there is a lovely covered eating terrace, and of course the private pool which is gated for safety....A wonderful rural retreat, yet less than a 15 minute drive to the local market town of Castelnuovo with all facilities, and only a short drive to pretty local villages with restaurants.

Rustico Brunello is situated in the province of Lucca, and more specifically, in the green & mountainous Garfagnana - the unspoilt and non touristy 'Green Lung' of Tuscany. The cottage is located a couple of kms from the village of Villa Collemandina, with its shop, 2 restaurants, pharmacy and post office.

There are plenty of other hilltop mediaeval villages in the vicinity too - some with restaurants, all with wonderful views...The closest larger town is the market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana which is a 12 minute drive away. Here there is a famous Thursday morning market, all facilities including restaurants, bars, train station, supermarkets etc.....

Surprisingly convenient for town for such a rural and peaceful location, yet only a 15/20 or min drive up into the National Park of Orecchiella which is renowned for its views, wildlife and walking trails which last anything from 1 hour to 4 days!

Lucca 70 mins; Barga 30 mins; Pisa 90 mins; Florence 2 hrs;
