About the property

Villa with private pool in Garfagnana at 500 meters from Villa Collemandina

The villa lies at 500 meters from the village of Villa Collemandina in a beautiful hilly area of Tuscany (50 Kms northern of Lucca). The location on an altitude of approximately 550m, grants a not too warm climate in the summertime (the temperature during the night is almost alsways not higher then 18C°). The property is an excellent destination for a relaxing holiday and visit the Garfagnana area with it charming villages, great scenic drives, walking-hiking (we suggest in the Orecchiella Natural Park) and other outdoor activities. It’s at the same time a good starting point to visit Pisa, Lucca and for a day at sea (the Versilia Riviera is 60 kms away). The main nearby town is Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (at 9 kms) and has many restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, supermarkets and weekly open market on Thursday. The whole property (house, pool and garden) is for private use of the tenant. It has an own garden (mostly lawn) and a 10 by 5 meter pool (depth 1,4 meter). There are also a barbecue and a stone oven to cook. There are table and chairs to eat outdoor under the shadow of the big tree (with panoramic view and sight on the pool). The villa is suitable for max 8+1 persons, all the bedrooms are on the first floor. It's possible to add a folding bed in one of the bedrooms. Baby cot available. On the ground floor there is a large dining room/kitchen with a well equipped kitchen, living/dining room, bathroom (shower, toilet). On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms (two with double bed and two with 2 single beds), bathroom (shower, toilet) and a covered terrace. Wi-fi internet connection available. All common household appliances are available (washing machine, dishwasher, fridge / freezer, TV, oven). Grocery store (butcher, delicatessen, local products, bread) and pharmacy are available in the village of Villa Collemandina, at walking distance (around 350 meters) from the property. There is a supermarket at 1,3 kms. More shops and restaurants are available in Castiglione di Garfagnana (2,5 kms far away) and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (9 kms). Here is also big supermarket (open every day from 8:30 to 20:30 and on Sunday from 9 to 20) near Gallicano (18kms from the villa). The golf course of Golf Club Garfagnana is 9 kms far away. Tennis lane and horse riding at 3 kms. It is a good point of departure point to visit cities such as Pisa, Lucca, Florence and many other small villages and on the other side for a day to sea (on 56 km distance) or in the mountains (the mountain of Abetone 1400-1900 meters high is 46 Kms far away).

House nice beds terrible wasp and horniss invasion

  • 3 of 5

House nice, some beds terrible, wasp and horniss invasion that made the pool partly unusable, equipment in house good, level of cleanness insufficient even for tolerant people, but that didn't really disturb us; the most annoying thing were the hundreds of wasps that destroyed any peace by the pool;

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We will beter check that the cleaning is made "as it must be" by the persons that take care of it. We haven't received any complaint from other guests that have rented the property last year and this season but we will evaulate it. The last two weeks it was extremely hot and dry so wasps seek for water around pool and irrigations systems (there aren't nests on the property)

Mooi groot huis met heerlijk zwembad

  • 4 of 5

Wij verbleven met twee gezinnen in augustus een week in dit huis en hebben genoten! Zelf pizza bakken in de steenoven is echt een aanrader. Een bezoek aan Lucca is ook zeker de moeite waard.

Someone has called the green island of Tuscany and in fact this valley, but close to important historical towns such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the flamboyant and fashionable Versilia, was closed in itself, living its own history and building a strong identity that still retains. From Garfagnana you can easily reach famous historical centers as Lucca, Pisa and Firenze, as well as the sparkler Riviera della Versilia, La Spezia and le Cinque Terre. Closer, almost a unique part with Valley, Lunigiana, with its castles, Serchio Media Valley, that with its Devil's Bridge (Ponte del Diavolo) in Borgo a Mozzano let start the geographical entrance to the Lucca province mountain area, we share with Alta Versilia a good part of our mountain chain. The Apuan Alps, which divide to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Apennine Mountains to the east, enclosing the valley like a casket. Garfagnana, literally Great Forest, so this valley seemed to its first visitors and even today you will be astonished in front of the extension of its lush forests. Man-planted, cared for and cultivated the chestnut up to 1000 meters above sea level, wild, intricate, finally the beech which go up, over 1700 meters and, year after year, trying to regain the heights of mountains nude.In this immense mass of green appear, almost suddenly, perched on a hill, perched on the high plains that slope towards the river, overhanging on vertiginous cliffs, the many small towns that characterize the Valley. Ruts in the narrow streets, inside the medieval defensive walls, time passes slowly, the rhythms are those of the past, the games of boys the same for centuries, the "workshops" have an antique perfume. the Valley is a real invitation to enjoy a relaxing holiday, relax on the edge of a swimming pool or lying on a fragrant meadow of "pepolino" (wild thyme), silently listening to the sounds of nature that surrounds us. Let yourself be enthralled by this goslow, it will be easy to discover hidden corners of the Valley which offer entirely different aspects to the change of the seasons: the footpath, landscape, Woods, colours every time will be for you a new emotion.
