Casa del Lago is a newly renovated 2 bedroom stone cottage almost on the lake,  with its own private pool.
It is not often one can find a getaway in an unspoilt spot, on the side of a lake, with sole use of a pool,  and all with mountain views, for such a reasonable price!
This truly is a unique getaway!
The property is a lovely mix of modern and traditional with beamed ceilings throughout, and with the outside all in classic romantic local stone.
Situated in the tiniest hamlet amongst rarely used second homes, in a mountain location but only 2km from the village of Careggine which has a couple of restaurant and some basic shops.

Property:

  • All on one level. Enter into open plan living/kitchen/diner with beamed ceilings and fireplace. WIFI.
  • There is a fully equipped kitchen, with oven, hob, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer,  microwave, dining table, sofa, TV and DVD player.
  • Bedroom one is a good size double
  • Bedroom two is a twin room with amazing views over the lake and mountains.
  • Shower room is modern, with shower cubicle, WC, bidet and sink.

Externally:

  • There is a raised patio area for enjoying al fresco dining, complete with BBQ
  • Private pool with sunbathing area and lake views. NB - pool area to be fully concreted week commencing 27th June and railings will also be in place at pool/eating area for protection.
  • Grassed  relaxing area below property on side of lake.
  • Parking.
  • Rowing boat can be hired from owner at €5 per day per person (max 4 people)

Just relax!

NB - external photos are of before pool and patioi area concreted and railed.
NB- this is an apartment and there is another apartment in the house but it is on the opposite side of house with own garden and eating area, and NO use of pool, so you have all to yourselves!

 A little about the area:

The property is situated on the side of Lago di Vagli, which is a dammed lake with a submerged village underneath!  The lake is surrounded by dramatic mountainous scenery.
2 km or 25 mins walk away is the village of Careggine (there is often skiing here in the Winter) which has basic facilities and a couple of restaurants. At the other end of the lake is another village with a couple of restaurants and basic shopping too.
For supermarket shopping one would go to the village of Camporgiano which has a couple of supermarkets, private castle, 3 or 4 restaurants and a train station if you fancy a break from the car when exploring this beautiful area.

A beautiful location from which to enjoy the stunning Garfagnana.

Whilst in the depths of the countryside, one can visit:

Local market town of Catselnuovo which is a 20 minute drive,
the gorgeous and popular mediaeval town of Barga which is a 35 minute drive
and the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca which is say 1 hour and 10 minutes away.

Pisa, with its leaning tower is a 90 minute drive,
and one can visit Florence in 2 hours.
The famous Wind Caves are a 45 minute drive.

Closer to home there are plenty of little historic villages to visit, many of which have local festas in the summer. Why not visit the Fortress at Verrucole which is a good afternoon out, with stunning views and some interactive activities for the children.

Also the  Buffardello tree climbing and zip wire park (ideal for both adults and children of all ages with a variety of runs) is a great day, where one can take a picnic and spend the entire day in the welcome shade of the forest.

The real beauty of this area is the dramatic mountain scenery, and the hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, endless picnicking opportunities, and the pure peace of a non touristy holiday ......
