Giammengo is a beautifully restored romantic stone property, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in the cottage, with a further 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom set across the little courtyard 10M from the house. There is a gorgeous pool and outdoor relaxing area.
Set in the depths of the Garfagnana, an hour or so North of Lucca, in a small village with a population of circa 300. There are village and mountain views. This house really is a treat!
Unusually for this area, one can walk to a pizzeria/restaurant (less than a 5 min walk) where one can dine al fresco on the terrace and take in the view, as well as a basic shop/bar, gelateria and butchers. For other facilities the local market town is less than a 10 minute drive away.
This 2 bedroom, 2 shower room village property, along with further bedroom and bathroom across the courtyard has been restored with lots of love and care, and retains its original character, but with the addition of modern shower rooms, beautiful furniture and stunning pool area complete with an outdoor kitchen, and no less than a choice of 3 eating areas, making it an ideal holiday home.
The cottage is tastefully presented, with a wonderful mixture of original flooring, beamed ceilings, chestnut windows, original balconies from bedrooms, blending perfectly with modern fireplace, pristine bathrooms, country kitchen and bang up to date outdoor area with good size modern pool.
This place really is a treat!

Arrival 5 Sept 2022
The warm welcome from the hosts ensured a sense of well-being. The accommodation, the pool with terrace and outdoor kitchen are exactly as described, even more beautiful. Everything is clean and lovingly furnished. Thanks to the recommendations of the hosts, we were able to discover the beauty of Tuscany. Dear Patricia, dear Geir... we really enjoyed our vacation with you and thank you for everything.

Fantastic house in a fantastic location!
Wonderfully located house with a unique view over the valley to the Alpi Apuane. The house is tastefully decorated and very clean, as is the entire complex. The pool with the outdoor kitchen was the focus of our stay. The landlady was very friendly, always available and had good tips for excursions and regional Tuscan cuisine in the area. The place offers everything you need: restaurant, bar, and a small shop. We really enjoyed the time and can only recommend the property! Especially for someone who wants to spend their vacation away from tourism.

Housing and housing are top notch. Please note that this place is a "treat" and it certainly is. All facilities are 100% and you feel really welcome in the house and the small town. Can only be recommended. We also send a happy thought to the landlord for very friendly reception, openness and not least to make it possible to visit their little gem! Regards Henrik & fam.

Comfortable house in a fantastic location
The property is a very good standard and was perfect for the two of us. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the facilities of the pool and outdoor kitchen/dining which were perfect for taking in the amazing views. We would certainly stay there again.
Fantastic house in a stunning landscape
Far beyond expectations. We have hired several times before in Tuscany, but this was exceptionally good. So many positive things like: The house itself has a very high standard with a stunning view over the Garfagnana landscape. It is well planned and so well equipped with every thing you need to prepare fantastic meals. Nice beds and linen. Even the tap water was so good to drink. A nice little garden with a pool. A fantastic surprise was the train station 5 min walk from the house, which took us to different places. Also 5 min walk to a local restaurant. We also received a big package of information for exploring the region. Last but not least; we were so warmly welcomed by the owner and had a very fine contact throughout our stay. We would like to highly recommend this place. Peter & Birgitta Arnmarker from Sweden . May 2019Fantastic – 5 stars
WOW! What an amazing place ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
As soon as we drove through the gates, we saw that this was an impressive property. The owner, Patricia met us and gave us a guided tour. She was very relaxed and shown us everything. The property had everything and to be honest I could not fault the place. Inside and out was lovely. The outside area and poo were amazing and the views were something else. There was an amazing Pizza restaurant about 5 minutes walk from the property along with a little shop for fresh bread. You will need a car if you want to explore the lovely countryside, plenty of parking at the property. All in all just superb. I would highly recommend this property and Patricia was super helpful to us.

Beautiful villa with stunning views ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A lovely, very comfortable and well equipped villa in a beautiful location with stunning views. The pool and outdoor kitchen area was fantastic.
The owner was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to visit. She recommended a trip over the mountains to the coast which was quite spectacular. The local restaurant, Il Grotto served good food and the prices were very reasonable. We certainly wouldn't hesitate in recommending this beautiful villa and would very much love to return some day.
