A little about the area

This stunning villa is situated 1 hr. north of Lucca high in the hills of Garfagnana Northern Tuscany. 

The views & walking opportunities are the real attraction of this property but there is a small bar/shop in two of the closest villages one of which is less than 1km away and a restaurant 2km away (half hour walk). There is also a pizzeria, and train station at the bottom of the hill 4km away. So, the countryside but not remote!

Just a 20  minute drive is Barga the beautiful mediaeval town, with its wonderful architecture, Duomo, very good restaurants, markets under the stars and regular free music.

Less than a 15 minute drive is the bustling little market town of Castelnuovo, famous for its Thursday morning market

The fully walled mediaeval city of Lucca is less than an hour away - try cycling around the walls, meandering in shady narrow streets and people watching in the Grand Piazzas while enjoying a drink or a gelato! Or, there are often outdoor concerts with big named performers, and if you prefer nightly opera recitals.

 Florence and Siena can be reached for day trips, and Pisa with its  airport is a 1 hr 15 minute drive. 

The Versilian coast is a good day trip  reached  either via Lucca or more spectacularly by crossing through the Apuan Alps.

 The famous Wind Caves are a 40 minute drive, as is the Canyoning park, where one can jump down waterfalls into beautiful rivers.

Closer to home there are plenty of little historic villages to visit, many of which have local festas in the summer.

Don't forget the lake of Vagli  (with its hidden village submerged by the water) for an afternoon drive, or the lake of Pontecosi, where one can stop for a drink. Some some guests love to swim in the river too ...

Many guests enjoy to visit  the local Fortress at Verrucole which is a good afternoon out, with stunning views and some interactive activities for the children. Close to the fortress is the Buffardello tree climbing and zip wire park (ideal for both adults and children of all ages with a variety of runs) where one can take a picnic or BBQ 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 ......

Enjoy!
