The ancient 16th-century stone Villa Massa stands in panoramic position in Garfagnana, between Lucca and Versilia. It features a private swimming pool and a small garden.
The villa has been finely renovated respecting its original style and using traditional materials, such as terracotta tiles, stone and wood. It is furnished in period style and with great attention and care to details.
Standing in Massa Sassorosso (850 m above sea level), a typical village of Garfagnana on the side of the Pania di Corfino and close to the Parco Naturale dell`Orecchiella (Orecchiella Natural Park), the villa is the ideal destination for relaxing holidays and at the same time an excellent starting point for visiting cities of art such as Pisa, Lucca and Florence or for spending a day at the sea (56 kilometres away), on the fashionable Versilia Riviera.
The villa features a private swimming pool (7.5x5.5 m), and a large furnished balcony covered with an arched loggia
