Overview

About the property

Sleeps 2/8 (3 Bedrooms+2 Bathrooms) with mountain view in peaceful location.

Baldo’s House was the old watermill and oil mill of the village of Corsagna, ancient medieval burg within the municipality of Borgo a Mozzano, located 360 meters above sea level, just 30 minutes drive from the city of Lucca and within driving distance of one of nature's most beautiful areas of Tuscany: the Garfagnana valley between the Alpi Apuane and the Apennine Tosco-Emiliano.

The magnificent location on which the house stands affords splendid views:over the valleys, the village and the surrounding hills and mountains.

The road leading to Corsagna offers a very special scenery to those who love nature, as it winds its way through woods and fields, destination of hikes and of horse and mountain bike rides.

The house is dating back to XIX century and it has been wisely renovated by Baldo, grandson of Michele and Pia, while maintaining its original character: the external structure of the cottage has been left unchanged and renovating the interior spaces in faithful Tuscan style. Perfect for a holiday for 2 (up to 8 persons).

Baldo’s house is a traditional Tuscan style apartment, inside, the ceilings are typical of the old Tuscan farmhouses, with flat terracotta bricks and wooden beams and rafters, stone walls, cotto and parquet floors. The comfortable furnishing is in the Lucchese style.

The property has a large garden of about 150 square meters crossed by a millpond (a small pool of water that provided the power to make the wheel of the old mill turn) ideally for children! At your disposal a barbecue, tables and chairs for pleasant outdoor dining and sunbeds and a wide outside patio, in front of the main entrance, which is accessed from the entrance gate.

The total area of the house is 120 square meters divided on three floors. A spacious and bright living area on the middle floor with large LCD television, sofa and comfortable armchairs and large fireplace, with a small covered porch leading to the garden. On this floor the fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, kettle and coffeemaker. Upstairs is a bedroom, Aunt Gina’ s room, with king size bed (71 in × 79 in) also divisible and a single bed. Downstairs two more bedrooms: Aunt Irene’s room, with double bed (51 in × 75 in) and the Grandparents Michael and Pia’ s room, with king size bed (71 in × 79 in) also divisible and with the possibility of an extra single bed and two bathrooms with shower (one also with bathtub). All rooms have windows with panoramic views and parquet floors.

It is possible to reach the house only on foot just in 2 minutes from the private parking place. Baldo, on your arrival, will be available to carry on your luggage to the entrance of the house. Free Internet WiFi. Heating on consumption. Equipped with washing machine, iron and ironing board.

We don't have a real pool but our garden is crossed by a millpond (a ​small pool of ​water that ​provided the ​power to make the ​wheel of the old ​mill ​turn) ideally for children!

Or, every summer the country's youth of Corsagna create a natural pool in the creek Pizzorna a few steps from home.

In the sourrounding area, few minutes drive from Corsagna:

- The river Lima flows in the valley of Bagni di Lucca is perfect for fishing, rafting, canoeing, canyoning, diving up to 9 meters deep, bathing and swimming in the crystal clear waters;

- Public Swimming Pool in Bagni di Lucca, 5 kms from Corsagna;

- Thermal SPA in Bagni di Lucca, 7 kms from Corsagna

THE AREA

Baldo’s House rises on a wonderful naturalistic area in Tuscany: the Garfagnana valley between the Alpi Apuane and the Apennine Tosco-Emiliano.

The wonderful landscape, studded with small towns, churches and forts will characterise your trips during a fascinating travel to discover the local culture and natural environments.

It is an ideal spot for those looking for a peaceful break, with good local shops, food and wine, walks in the woods and magnificent views.

Corsagna

Tolles Haus mit super Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist sehr schön eingerichtet, blitzblank sauber und hat eine tolle Lage auf dem Berg. Die Aussicht ist spitze und auch der Garten ist wunderbar zum relaxen geeignet. Für uns als 5-köpfige Familie mit erwachsenen Kindern sehr gut geeignet.

Auch die Umgebung ist sehr reizvoll mit bekannteren Städten wie z. B. Lucca aber auch kleineren pittoresken Dörfern (z. B. Barga oder Montecarlo).

Besonders hervorzuheben sind die sehr hilfsbereiten und netten Vermieter Ilena und Baldo, die unseren Aufenthalt in jeder Hinsicht zu einem schönen Urlaub gemacht haben.

Alles in Allem -> sehr gerne weiter zu empfehlen!!

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank Raul Familie für so warm und engagierten Kommentar. Michael und ihre Familie waren sehr angenehme Gäste, sauber, einfach und zuverlässig. Sie verließen die Wohnung wie Personen, die dort lebten. Es wäre ein Vergnügen sein, wenn sie bei mir bleibt wieder, wenn sie Italien das nächste Mal besuchen!

We enjoyed 1 week in this beautiful house. It is very well furnished and equipped - from the kitchen to the bedrooms we missed nothing. In combination with the friendliness of Ilenia and Baldo we had an perfekt vacation in Italy and hope that we can come back another day to enjoy this place.

Traumhaus in den Bergen

  • 5 of 5

Nach einer kurvigen Autofahrt und ca. 100m Fußweg erreicht man dieses Traumhaus im Dörfchen Corsagna.

Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sauber und liebevoll gepflegt.

Im Garten wachsen Oliven, Äpfel und Birnen.

Im Ort gibt es einen kleinen Supermarkt für das Nötigste.

Ein Haus um sich rundum wohlzufühlen!!

Einizer Minuspunkt ist das doch recht schmale Bett im Elternschlafzimmer.
