A little about the area:

Situated in a tiny hillside hamlet in the heart of the stunning mountainous Garfagnana, and less than a 20 minute walk from a good restaurant.

Convenient, peaceful and rural mountain location yet only 2.5km from the local market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana with its bars, restaurants, shops and Thursday morning market.

  • Barga - 15 minutes by car - this beautiful mediaeval town with cobbled streets, wonderful views, great restaurants, art, regular free outdoor music and regular day time and evening markets deserves a few visits.
  • Lucca - 45 mins by car - this stunning mediaeval city is a must for a day trip or two. One can spend all day cycling the walls exploring the many piazzas, climbing towers, admiring the architecture, designer shopping or just absorbing the wonderful atmosphere of Puccini's birthplace. Treat yourself to an opera recital too, or if you travel during the music festival, see world famous acts in intimate settings.
  • Florence - 90 minute drive.
  • Pisa and Pisa airport around 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • For those who enjoy the outdoor life there is also a local tree climbing/zip wiring park a 20 minute drive away, with courses adapted for all age groups, from the very young to adults. Enjoy a picnic here too on hot days.
  • There are local adventure parks where one can try water canyoning, rock climbing, swimming in rock pools, canoeing etc and there is the Grotta del Vento, a massive cave system in the mountains which is a good day out.
  • There is an ancient fortress to visit also just a 25 minute drive , with jaw dropping views,  and interactive displays for children including a chance to try a little archery..

This list is not of course exhaustive, but suffice to say the property is prefect for those seeking a wonderful rural property in a peaceful location with mountain vistas and for families that enjoy walking, nature and picnics and visiting local villages, yet within easy reach of towns too.
