VERY PEACEFUL RURAL HOUSE IN MEDIAVALLE'S COUNTRYSIDE

Borgo a Mozzano Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

2 double bedded rooms and 1 single bedded room , terrace and garden

The house is on two levels: the lower level is entirely occupied by a big cellar while on the upper level there's the apartment:, divided in two areas:

- the living room area just at the entrance and a small separated and fully equipped kitchenette with gas hob and oven.

- the night area with two double bedded rooms (salmon room and yellow room), one single bedded room (green room) and the bathroom

- In the night area there's an air conditioner which can also be used in winter time as a heater, while in the living room there's a fireplace and a wood stove. Wood is provided and it's included in the price.

There's a 200m long non asphalted road which starts from main road SP20 and ends to the house. Main services and shops are just five minutes away by car, however a private mean of transportation is suggested as the house is in open countryside with no neighborhood (the only other building reachable on foot a restaurant on the main road, 200m away from the house

The Mediavalle and Garfagnana area: This area is one of the greenest of the entire Tuscany: chestnut tree is the most common one. Chestnut has always widely used in the traditional kitchen of garfagnana and still today it is used for making bread, pies and cakes. Also There's also a local brewery where beer is made out of chestnut.

Medieval villages like Ghivizzano, Barga, Coreglia Antelminelli, Castelnuovo Garfagnana (all reachable in 15 minutes by car) and many other smaller ones are a witness of the importance of this valley in the middle ages, where all pilgrims coming from northern Europe and going to Rome had to cross Garfagnana and Mediavalle. This explains the presence of some fortesses ( Verrucole - 40 minutes by car) as well as the very high amount of medieval churches, pieves, sanctuaries and hermitages ( Calomini, 20 minutes by car)

Activities: The area of Mediavalle and Garfagnana has plenty of pathways. Some of them are important also for historical reasons, like the ones starting from the village of Borgo a Mozzano (reachable in 10 minutes by car - booking required) which go through the fortifications of the Gothic Line built in 1943-44 by the germans, and the Ariosto Pathway (25 minutes by car), starting from Castelnuovo Garfagnana and leading to the fortress of Montalfonso.

Others, are more focused on nature, like the Pathways of the Moro, which starts from Sillano (50 minutes by car).

The Grotta del Vento in Vergemoli (30 minutes by car) is one of the most interesting of Italy. It is possible to choose between three paths(1, 3, or 5 hours long) that lead through natural caves.

There's a Spa center in the town of Bagni Di Lucca (20 minutes drive)

A WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
I know it's a bit late, but better late than never! We stayed here from 21 July 2012 to 4 August 2012. We had an absolutely lovely time. The family who own the villa met us personally, and knowing we were coming in late, had stocked the kitchen with snacks, food for breakfast, and had even stocked the wine rack. There is a hammock for leisurely days, a restaurant right at the end of the drive, and even a pizza oven. The house was clean and bright. We easily spent many happy days here rather than going out. If you do go out, however, it is only a short drive to Pisa, Lucca, and even Florence. When we go back to Italy, we are definitely staying here again. It was one of our best holidays.
