Step back in time!
Borgo di Roberto is a tiny hamlet which has been converted into romantic one bedroom apartments (each with sofabed, and one with the option of an additional bedroom too)
The setting is absolutely stunning with the newly renovated properties retaining all their traditional character, with classic Tuscan colours, beautiful slate roofs, original style windows and set down tiny flagstoned paths with the mountains as a backdrop!
The scenery can only be described as jaw dropping, with dramatic mountain views at every turn.
Such peace and quiet, in a totally unique mountain setting but still within walking distance of 2 restaurants/bars and only a 15/20 minute drive into town. Ideally located also for the beach and the cinque terre as well as the beautiful Garfagnana - a real treat!
The apartments may be in a traditional setting and have the benefit of beamed ceilings, traditional style windows and stunning views, but they have all the modern conveniences expected, each with their own equipped kitchen, good size pristine shower room and their own personal eating/relaxing area and WIFI! Shared facilities are the laundry, grounds, pizza oven and the pool which really is in an amazing lcoation, with 360 degrees of dramatic views...
This is a real treat and totally flexible accommodation since we can also include food packages, or a welcome dinner etc....The owner really looks after his guests and whilst unobtrusive will be available to assist with any particular requirements. He will also leave some hotel luxuries such as breakfast/welcome pack etc. You will also find he is very generous and often offers free aperitivos by the pool early evening, and he also has an 'honesty' bar too.
Each apartment is named after parts of the mountains that can be seen from the site.
Pania della Croce
Col di Favilla (this is also available as a 2 bedroom option)
Each have a double bedroom, living/kitchen/diner with sofab ed , TV, WIFI, pristine shower room, own outdoor eating area.
Views are fantastic and whilst modern and clean there is an olde worlde feel with beamed ceilings and so forth.
Laundry room also with additional fridges for drinks by the pool.
Pool area with pool set in a stunning backdrop. Plenty of place for sunbathing and ample sunbeds for all.
Set high in the hills, a 15 minute drive from the local market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, this is real mountain territory! There is total peace and quiet, and a real feel of staying in a totally unique place, yet unusually one can also walk to two restaurants (less than 5 minutes away eac). One of the restaurants is run by the owners family so guests will be given a special welcome. Enjoy a never ending Sunday lunch, with course after course of surprises arriving at your table, and all for a very reasonable set price!
Whilst the location can only be described as remote, it is actually located better than most others in the area for the beach (.....) and the famous World Heritate area of the Cinque Terre....(....)
Lucca, is Pisa is ..... Florence....
