Overview

Castelnuovo di Garfagnana Rental Photos and Description

8 beds, 6 baths (16+1)

A beautifully renovated old barn set in 3 hectares of farmland, with amazing views over the unspoilt, green and mountainous countryside of Garfagnana, Northern Tuscany. The property is split into 2 apartments, giving larger groups privacy from each other, whilst staying together on holiday.

La Casa has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and La Capanna, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, benefiting from the stunning chestnut beamed ceiling in the open plan living space. Both have fully equipped kitchen areas and open fireplaces. La Capanna enjoys a first floor terrace.

Outside there is an eating terrace overlooking the pool area, and looking out to the mountains beyond.

The houses is just 2 km from Camporgiano with its river, castle, weekly market, restaurants, bars and shop. The village also boasts a train station for those days when you wish to leave the car behind, and visit the likes of Lucca; Barga; Castelnuovo; Pisa; Florence and the coast.

The house/Garfagnana: A truly rural holiday, but with plenty of opportunity to explore.

The property is situated circa 2 km from the nearest village, with plenty of facilities. You may also walk across the fields if you prefer for a leisurely lunch.

The house boasts fantastic views of the unspoilt countryside whatever the time of year. Explore the hundreds of hilltop villages, go walking, horse-riding, bike riding, or try the fishing which is excellent. Of course the possibilities for picnics are endless and star gazing at night an experience. Relax with a glass of wine and watch locals play Bocce or be a spectator at the cheese rolling for which the area is famous. In the autumn join in the local passion of mushroom picking or feast on chestnuts which used to form the staple diet for the locals. Tourism is yet to hit this area and this is truly one of those increasingly rare places in Europe for which this can be said.

Food: Garfagnanan cuisine is fairly simple, but scrumptious, using local fresh produce to prepare dishes, which since cooked for the locals are very cheap! Wine is good and inexpensive. Lunch can easily be eaten (2 course + cheese/fruit + wine) for circa £ 5 per head. There are numerous restaurants in the area and children are welcome. Provisions can easily be found in local bars/shops and supermarkets.

The locals are very friendly and helpful although not many speak English, take your phrase book. That said, we have family in the area who will be pleased to help you with any translation issues.

Location: Properties are circa 1 1/2 h drive from Pisa, 2 hrs from Genoa, 2 h Florence, and 2 1/2 h from Bologna. The local market town of Castelnuovo is circa 25 min drive away, famous for its Thursday morning market.

A 2 or 3 min drive will take you to the village of Camporgiano which has all the facilities you will need and also a train station for when you want a rest from the car. The station serves Lucca/Pisa and also various seaside towns (with a change at Lucca).

Lucca is under an hour by train/car and is an absolute must, as is Barga just half hour away.

Gruppenurlaub in wunderschönem Ambiente

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben mit 17 Erwachsenen eine Woche in diesem geschmackvoll restaurierten Ferienhaus verbracht. Es hat alles soweit gepasst: Der gigantische Pool, die vielen Sitzplätze im großen Garten und den Terrassen, das Backhäuschen und der Grill.
Danke auch für die gute und nette Einweisung auf englisch von der Besitzerfamilie.
Alles in allem: Ein ruhiges Plätzchen zum Genießen und definitiv weiterzuempfehlen.

Secluded paradise

  • 4 of 5
17 of us stayed in this lovely location for a walking holiday. There was adequate space for all of us and we had several meals together round the BBQ and the beautiful terrace facing the hills. Our walks were within easy car journeys and it was lovely to return and relax round the pool. Plenty of shade round the garden for those who find it too hot! We also loved Lucca and travel by rail. The local pizza restaurant in the village was excellent. The owner met us on arrival and was very friendly. Super place for a family get together or a group of friends.

Lovely villa with large pool and great views

  • 5 of 5
This is a great villa and was just as described. We hired the 2 properties together as there were 11 people in our group. The villas were well maintained, with a large garden; the pool was large (and kept very clean) and only a few steps from the villa! If it gets too hot in the sun you can sit in the shade of the terrace. Although there is no air conditioning the building actually remains quite cool even during the heat of the day. The owners made us very welcome and were always happy to help with local information.

I would highly recommend this place, especially for large groups who want to hire both villas (if you hire one villa then you will share the garden and pool with guests from the other villa).

My only caution is that I would not really recommend this for families with very young children from a safety aspect, as the pool has no fence around it; and there is no shallow end in the pool. But if the children can swim it's great!
