Set on a terraced hillside just outside the mountain village of Treppignana, (571m asl), with beautiful far-reaching views, Villa Ricci is an enormous detached villa (450 sqm over 3 levels) with 2-storey outbuilding (230 sqm over 2 levels), shepherds hut and barn with panoramic terraces and about 10,900 sqm (2.42 acres) of land including enclosed garden, terraced vineyard and woodland.
Floor plans available on request.
The upper barn was lived in by a shepherd (you can still see the open fire he used in winter). It measures around 120 sqm over 2 floors. The shepherd lived upstairs while downstairs was used as a workshop for wine vats.
The lower barn was a stable with hayloft above.
There are some shops and cafés in the nearby villages of Riana (3km) and Migliano (4km) while Ceserana (5km) has a train station on the main line from Pisa/Lucca to Aulla.
The village of Treppignana is only 13 minutes away from the bustling market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana and 20 minutes from Barga. Lucca is 48km away and the journey to Pisa airport (70km) takes less than 1½ hours hours.
Both the coast (Forte dei Marmi) and well equipped ski resort of Abetone are about an hour away by car while the small village Careggine has ski runs and is just 25km (30 minutes) away.
