GREAT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
I just got back from a week in this farmhouse and had a brilliant time. I stayed there with family to celebrate a birthday and there were 15 of us in total. The views are absolutely amazing and photos don't do it justice, literally breath-taking. The fact that you are within walking distant of the village is a great bonus and we went in every afternoon for our daily ice cream, delicious. There's also a small playground in the village which is shaded and secure so great for the kids. The pool at the house is a great size and many happy hours were spent splashing around. There's adequate outdoor seating and a barbeque which is great in the warm evenings. Also the shutters on the windows were fantastic if you wanted a lie in. The apartments had everything you would need, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker etc. The owners live next door but it still felt very private and they left us alone. The have no English but were extremely friendly and went out of their way to help us when necessary. There's a great drive you can do from here (takes around 1.5 hours) that goes through San Pellegrino where the views are outstanding. There's a restaurant right across the road which does lovely takeaway pizzas. I would highly recommend this farmhouse and this region of Tuscany and can't wait to go back.

Situated in the wonderfully scenic area in Tuscany known as the Garfagnana, the farm has fantastic views. The centre of the medieval village of Castiglione is only 500 metres from the farm, and the castle and walls can be seen from the house. Recently the village was voted as one of the nicest villages in all of Italy.

Outstanding outdoor activities are easily available in the region, and the local horse riding stables are only 10 minutes walk.

The area is also well known for its excellent value restaurants, using the best of local ingredients. A typical set lunch with 4 choices of pasta course, and 4 choices of main course costs only € 9 inclusive of bread, wine and coffee. It is possible to have a multi-course traditional Sunday lunch or dinner with ample wine, coffee and liqueurs for less than

€ 25.

Garfagnana is the best area in Tuscany for walking.

We have links with an outdoor activities company who offer guided walks and climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and world class gorge walking.

The local market town of Castelnuovo with good shops is only 6 kms away.

To reach the area you go from Pisa to Lucca, then North to Castelnuovo. Exact directions given.

There is an English speaking, Mini-bus taxi driver available for airport or local trips.
