Overview

Castelnuovo di Garfagnana Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage with 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, Garden, Pool

Le Lunghe is a little house in the beautiful Garfagnana region of Northern Tuscany, perched in a spectacular position on the outskirts of the medieval village of Sassi. There is a 3.5m diameter, 90cm deep, lightweight swimming pool on the lawn which is great for play or cooling off, and a paved terrace as well as a delightful shaded eating area.

The house has stunning views and is ideal for people who seek peace and solitude, but is within a few minutes walk or drive of all amenities. There are two bars and restaurants within a short walk and you shouldn't have to go much more than 10 miles in any direction to appreciate what the area has to offer.

The house has been recently restored and extended and has a fully fitted dining kitchen, sitting room with sofa bed leading to a large covered verandah and a large bathroom with shower and washing machine. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with twin beds or a double.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Perfect, peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Le Lunghe in May. The location was incredibly beautiful. The house is exactly as it's pictured on the website. There are three different outdoor dining areas, and it was wonderful to sit out there, sip wine, and check out the view. The owners, Laura and Giancarlo, were extremely helpful and went out of their way to help us get acclimated. We were there for 5 nights, and I would gladly have stayed longer. Laura is very knowledgeable about hiking in the area and I would have liked to take advantage of that. It was too cool for the pool, but I'm sure it's delightful in the summer. The tiny village nearby was really appealing, with a very good restaurant. The house is pretty out of the way, but that was part of its appeal for us. You definitely need a car.

Owner's Response: Laura and Giancarlo enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again one day. You are right about the house being out of the way....but as it's only a few minutes walk to the village restaurant you dont always need the car. I've stayed in the house and it's actually my favourite amongst the smaller houses that we manage. Great to hear that you enjoyed the area. Andrew McKean ( Friends of Tuscany )

This would be an ideal holiday spot for hill walkers and nature lovers as the Apuan Alps above the village are criss crossed with marked footpaths, as are the Appenine Mountains across the valley.

Garfagnana has the best walking in Tuscany and the owners can advise on routes or accompany you on guided walks. Other outdoor activities such as mountain biking, canyoning and horse riding can easily be arranged.

There are lovely outdoor swimming pools in Castelnuovo, Gallicano and Barga. All the pools are served by cafe bars and have fantastic views.

Close by, Barga is an atmospheric town with regular festivals, a weekly summer outdoor market under the stars, exhibitions and galleries.

Castelnuovo, 1000 feet below the house, is good for all kinds of shopping, has a a local market, two tourist information offices and many bars and restaurants.

Garfagnana is famous in Italy for the quality and value of its food, cooked in a simple, rustic style with the best of local ingredients
