About the property

Country estate to hire - 3 character properties and private pool. Sleeps 10 + 5

Stunningly located in the heart of the Garfagnana with the most wonderful views of open countryside and mountains, is this beautiful stone cottage and chestnut house which have been converted into three clean, light, airy, spacious and well equipped holiday homes sharing a pool. We rent them all together to give you full privacy and a real sense of freedom. Be together when you wish but have privacy between your groups. Ideal for friends or large families.

The apartments are individually equipped, with personal entrances and personal eating out areas with BBQs. There is a large terrace to all eat together.

This is an ideal spot for groups of couples and families looking for a totally peaceful holiday with amazing views, yet within easy reach of local tourist activities, and rarely in this area within walking distance of 2 restaurants!

Enjoy this amazing location and the beautifully kept properties which are split as follows:

One house split into 2 x 2 bedroom properties sleeping 4 plus 2 each.

One little metato/barn converted into romantic one bedroom detached house sleeping 2 plus 1.

All accomodation is fresh, clean and well loved, with traditional chestnut windows, traditional flooring and a character feel. Two have the benefit of beautiful original beamed ceilings and all have a pristine shower room and they are all individually equipped.

All properties have beautiful views and overlook the garden/pool.

The private pool is 10M x 5M and is situated to make the most of the jaw dropping mountain views.

Lovely property in a glorious spot

  • 5 of 5

We booked all three apartments for a family holiday. They were very clean and well looked after with all the facilities we needed. The pool was great with an amazing view. Loriano was helpful and kind offering us fresh tomatoes from the garden and home made cakes. A brilliant week.

Beautiful tranquil setting with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Agriturismo La Foce late August. We rented out all three of the locations on site.

The surrounding views are outstanding.

A retreat for anyone wishing a quiet relaxing time away from it all. Nearest supermarket is in Gallicano, a 20 minute drive down the mountain.

It was a little difficult to find. It's 800 meters high and only road is narrow and very windy. Blink and you will miss the turn to La Foce. but the magnificent views once there make it worthwhile.

Villa Edera and Villa Eden is one house split in two with identtial layout on both floors. Two double bedrooms, one bathroom, double sofa bed in living area which includes kitchen facilities including dishwasher.

Villa Edera, the lower floor has very large patio area.

Villa Eden has smaller patio area to the front.

The metado is located next to the pool and has one double bedroom and one single sofa bed. Very quaint. Our breakfast view in the morning was stunning.

The pool was lovely, slightly on the cold side for me but the kids loved it and it was hard to rear them away.

Loriano, the owner was on hand on arrival to welcome us and explain the facilities to us.

Everything is catered for. A couple bikes and helmrts. There's even bbq.

Washing machine & iron is located in laundry room, which serves all three apartments.

Everything was very clean.

Enough outside table chairs and sun loungers for all.

There is room for 2 cars on site with additional parking a few metres away.

Thank you to Loriano and his wife for having such a delightful place.

We highly recommend and would definitely look at staying again!

Agréable séjour dans magnifique propriété

  • 4 of 5

Magnifique propriété, entourée d'un grand jardin bien entretenu, au calme et sans vis à vis. Belle exposition et très beau panorama.

Les trois appartements, indépendants, sont confortables, bien agencés, pourvus de tout le nécessaire (BBQ, four, lave vaisselle....).

Belle piscine dotée de nombreux bains de soleil.

Un propriétaire discret et disponible à tout moment si nécessaire. Un grand merci à son épouse pour les deux gâteaux de bienvenue. Ici pas de caution ni d'état des lieux, seuls la confiance et le respect mutuels sont de mise.

A voir absolument : Lucca et ses remparts, Pise, sa tour "pendente" et sa cours des miracles. A faire dans le parc naturel d'Orrido di Bottri : remontée du cours d'eau pour arriver sur une piscine naturelle (prévoir de bonnes baskets).

Seul bémol, premiers commerçants à 20mn (routes de montagne sinueuses et très étroites - ne pas oublier le beurre...).

Car: necessary

Situated in the heart of the Garfagnana, in the depths of the countryside, with mountain views, but only 1km from the closest village and restaurant, this property offers both total peace, yet is within easy distance of the fully walled, Medieval City of Lucca, 1 hour; Pisa 90 min; Florence 1 hr 40 min and the medieval town of Barga 20 minutes

The local town of Gallicano is less than a 15 minute drive, and here one can find a train station for easy exploring, shops, bars, restaurants, weekly market and a hypermarket.

The market town of Castelnuovo with its famous Thursday morning market, and various bars and restaurants is only a 20minute drive too.

The real beauty of this area however is the stunning scenery and hundreds of beautiful hilltop villages to explore…..

Perfect for walkers, this property is within walking distance of the most famous Mountain Peak in the area – Pan del Croce.
