Farmhouse complex that was totally restored in 1998 and transformed into 4 beautiful apartments on a hilltop not far from Lucca. The stone farmhouse sits at 600 meters altitude and offers views over the surrounding countryside with chestnut forests, and steep wooded mountains. It is a little paradise from which one can hike all the mountain trails and visit the historical cities of central Tuscany. Gallicano with all facilities is at 10 kms, Lucca is at 50 kms, while Firenze and the seaside at Forte dei Marmi are an hour’s drive away. Worth a visit is also the famous cave called "Grotta del Vento", unique in its speleological majesty.
The property is well served by a local asphalt road and it is bordered by fence with gate that operates with electronic key and internal com system connected to each apartment. As the farmhouse is built into the side of a hill, it is articulated on various levels and has a series of furnished terraces, a stone barbecue, and lawns with an above ground swimmingpool that measures 5 X 10m sq. Each apartment has its own private furnished terrace space and totally independent entrance. These terraces are equipped with beautiful rustic tables and benches, providing perfect places to enjoy one’s meals while gazing at the panorama. Capanne 4 is in a separate barn.
Capanne2 is a beautiful apartment with a private entrance on the front part of the cottage, slightly hidden by the corner of a house. In front of the apartment is a small, well placed terrace, from which one has a magnificent view of the Apuan Alps. Inside, a wooden staircase leads upwards. On the right, two steps down, is the dining room with a typical Tuscan fireplace and a bed couch. A balcony divides the kitchen area, including a gas-stove, fridge and oven, and the dining room. Two doors lead away from the kitchen: one to a double bedroom, the other to a bathroom and shower, one step higher. The room has a number of arched windows. This was probably the “METATO” of the house (an ancient Roman term used for a room in which chestnuts were stored and left to dry). Returning to the entrance, the wooden staircase leads up to a room with a double bed and a door to a small bathroom including a sink, toilet and shower. The roof of the room is tilted and about 1 metre high at the lowest point. The room is very welcoming, as is the whole apartment, which is very pleasant and intimate with its abundant use of wood.

Wij hebben bijna twee weken verbleven in Le Capanne. Het huis is prachtig gelegen in de bergen van Garfagnana, in de Apuaanse Alpen, in het noorden van Toscane. Een prachtig gebied, met veel onbedorven dorpjes en schitterende wandel en fiets (mountainbike) mogelijkheden.Le Capanne is een huis dat bestaat uit drie appartementen in het hoofdgebouw en een vierde in een apart huisje. Tijdens ons verblijf waren er geen andere gasten in het grote huis. Hierdoor hadden we het hele terrein en het zwembad voor onszelf. Ons appartement was voldoende uitgerust voor een heerlijke vakantie. Enige nadeel was dat er maar een restaurantje op wandelafstand was, maar de eigenaar van Le Capanne organiseert om die reden twee keer per week vervoer naar een restaurant in het dal, met een keuzemenu, de zogeheten "Degustibus".Le Capanne is absoluut een aanrader voor natuurliefhebbers die "het andere" Toscane willen leren kennen.
