Two stone built barns in the little mountain hamlet of Monterotondo (460m asl), just 2.5km from Castelnuovo di Garfagnana and a 10-15 minute walk to the much loved local restaurant and café, Bonini.
The barns are situated next to the owner's house yet sit within around 1000 sqm of gently sloping land with plenty of room for a swimming pool. They could be knocked down and replaced with a detached 3 or 4 bedroom villa (200+ sqm) .
The property is on the edge of the hamlet, which is surrounded by woodland (mainly chestnut, beech and oak), which supplies a wealth of delicious produce, including the world- famous porcini mushrooms.
The local shops are a few minutes drive away in Castelnuovo. This medieval market town (227m/745ft; population 8,000) lies in the heart of the Garfagnana, as this stretch of the fertile valley of the Serchio, flanked by the Apuan Alps to the west and Apennines to the east, is known. The district provides a range of sporting activities and promotes folk, agricultural and cultural events.
Monterotondo is about 12km from the walled town of Barga, 43 km from Lucca and 66 km from Pisa airport, which is just over 1 and a quarter hours drive away. Castelnuovo train station is on the main Pisa/Lucca to Aulla line and there is a bus station with good links to the surrounding area.
There are local ski slopes just 20 minutes away while the coast (Forte dei Marmi) and larger ski resort of Abetone are about an hour's drive.
