Overview

About the property

Detached house with 3 bedrooms and private pool

Beautifully situated in a panoramic position in the heart of the Garfagnana, 1 hr 15 mins north of Lucca, Rustico Chiozza is a newly renovated house with its own pool, which is fenced and gated for security.

The house which is on 3 storeys, has been sympathetically restored with some beamed ceilings, exposed internal stonework and traditional flooring.

Situated a 15 minute drive from the market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. The closest village is that of Chiozza which is a 5 min drive away and has a shop, bar and restaurant.

Just over 3.5km away is the busy village of Pieve Fosciana with all facilities except railway station which is at Castelnuovo. There are a couple of very good restaurants at Pieve Fosciana and plenty in Castelnuovo.

Up in the hills and only a 15 minute drive from the mountain peak village of San Pelligrino, this is a perfect place for those looking for a very peaceful holiday with lots of walking opporunities.

On the ground floor there is a small living room with SAT TV, DVD, and CD and a utility room with washing machine.

On the first floor there is a large kitchen/diner with great views, open fireplace, eating space for 6. Kitchen is fully equipped with oven, 5 ring hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, along with a twin bedroom and shower room. The kitchen area leads out to an eating terrace.

Up wooden original staircase (not ideal for toddlers/small children) on the second floor there are two double bedrooms with wonderful views and beamed ceilings.

Outside there is a large open space/garden, with panoramic views over the mountains and a private pool of 9M x 4M which is gated for safety. BBQ. Pizza oven

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

The photographs don't do the property justice. The views are breathtaking. We had a fabulous holiday holiday at this house mainly relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet. There is a great Pizzeria just two minutes drive away at Chiozza and the nearest supermarket about 15 minutes drive. We loved the area visiting Pisa, lucca, Florence and the coast up to Cinque Terre. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this house.

Beautiful and peaceful setting in the Tuscan hills

  • 4 of 5

Old Tuscan cottage in a beautiful and peaceful surroundings. You have to take many hairpin curves to arrive at the place of destination, but the view is more than rewarded. The owners were very friendly and nice and spoke English.

In the surrounding area were various sportive activities to do for our children (22, 20 and 17 years old). Cities like Lucca, Pizza and Florence by car we have visited.

A place were time stands still.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks with children 8 and 14 and had seeked out a place were space, privacy and absolut freedom of how to spend the time - this was the goal. The property and area is ideal for nature lovers, with countless observations to make. Many animals come to the house, with beautiful flowers and trees. The view is spectacular ! The house is really old, clean and has modern features. It is never the less rustic - in a charming way, but best for people who enjoy living for a while a little like in the olden days. You can bake in an ancient Pizzaoven, harvest fruit and walk on century old floors. If you love to get away from it all - this is the place!

We are happy to hear you enjoyed those spectacular views and the array of wildlife and fauna etc seen in this beautiful part of the world, and especially here which is particularly unspoilt. We hope you are able to come another time to enjoy the peace! Thank you , Lorraine at 'tuscan-retreats'

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is traditional and rustic and had plenty of character. It was clean and we had plenty of kitchen equipment on hand throughout our stay. The owners thoughtfully left us a welcome gift of wine and fruit which was much appreciated.

Our only criticism was that the satellite TV was restricted to Italian programmes but even then it added to the World Cup atmosphere listening to the football commentary in Italian.

The owners were very helpful throughout our stay and even recommended an excellent restaurant in nearby Chiozza.

Our cottage was half way up a hill and the views from the cottage were fabulous. We just loved sitting out and appreciating the marvellous mountain ranges in the distance. It even inspired us to tackle them during our stay.

Outside, the kids loved the swimming pool and table tennis and playing in the extensive gardens. We enjoyed the aromatic plants and watching the fireflies each evening.

For the views alone, we would thoroughly recommend Rustico Chiozza for an unforgettable Tuscan holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review, and we are glad you enjoyed the house! Sorry about the TV not showing UK channels. Unfortunately the BBC and ITV channels have all changed their satellite and it is now impossible to get these channels in Italy. The Italian channels should show major sporting events.

Very nice stay at Rustico chiozza

  • 4 of 5

We, a party of 3 adults and 3 teenagers, enjoyed our stay for a week very much. The house, an old farmhouse, is well restored and few original details have remained (including wooden floors wich is a bit noisy but we didn't mind) The house is very well equiped (tv, wifi, washing machine, dishwasser. 2 ovens, BBQ, terrace chairs and tables, pool toys etc). We liked the quiet place with the beautyfull view of the mountains from the private terrace and the (fenced) swimming pool !. There's enough room for everyone, Each sleepingroom has enough space for the clothes etc.The owners are very friendly and helpfull (we could call them; once we had to and we're helped very quickly) The nearest shops are 15 minutes drive away. The road to the house looks rather small but we get used to it with our MPV. Perhaps the wooden stairs to the second floor are difficult for elderly and/or disabled people but there's a bedroom with 2 single beds on the first floor (only one solid stone staircase).

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5

If driving in the mountains doesn’t bother you and you appreciate:

• the great nature,

• tranquility

• privacy

• a beautiful and never boring view

• very nice swimming pool

• spacious and authentic house with lots of good facilities

We highly recommend this accommodation.

We spend 2 weeks with our family (4 children (9, 11, 13 and 14) 2 adults) at this lovely place and we enjoyed it very much. We made some nice trips to Castelnuova di Garfagnana, Grotte di Vento, Carrara, Viarechio, Lucca, Pisa, Barga and Florence. We did hiking in the mountains which are very nearby and does provide great views on the Garfagnana and the Mediterranean see.
