Overview

Camporgiano Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A beautiful newly and very carefully restored barn, set in the heart of the Garfagnana region of Northern Tuscany, 1 hr 15 minutes north of Lucca.

This detached villa with private pool has been lovingly refurbished by the owner using traditional materials, and warm tuscan colours to give a rustic, but very homely feel to the property.

The 'barn' has beamed ceilings and traditional style flooring throughout and is furnished with a pleasing mix of the modern and antique. The ceilings are high, giving a good sense of light and space, and the views from the house are beautiful......

As well as the open plan well equipped kitchen, diner, living area, there are 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, one of which is ensuite, and one of which boasts a bath tub.

Outside there is a covered pergola, gardens with apple trees and private infinity style pool of 10M x 5M. Open from 21st March to 30th September.

This is a perfect place to relax, and enjoy a real feeling of yesteryear, whilst surrounded by modern comforts.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Well, back home now after a truly wonderful time in Italy and I just wanted to thank you again for all the help you, your husband and Benito gave me.

We all loved Vinca but had very fond memories of Caprifoglio too so would find it hard to choose which one if we are ever able to return. Ilario and Maria were so kind and helpful and it was a delight to meet them again.

Successful resting in La Vinca

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and comfortable house – great and clean pool – the manager looks after the guests and their needs constantly.

Very good Pizza in Careggine easy to find because this is a very small but interesting mountain village

Beautiful home-from-home in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Ilario, the owner of La Vinca was so kind to us throughout our stay. He brought us a huge tray of fresh vegetables from his garden and even offered to drop us at the station when we didn't have a car. He was incredibly friendly and warm when he welcomed us to the property but then left us to enjoy our time secluded and completely in private, which was fantastic. The house is very spacious and had everything we needed - all to a high standard. The pool, garden and amazing view were everything we were hoping for. I would recommend staying at La Vinca to friends and family for sure.

Thanks to Ilario and to the helpful people who handled our online booking.

A fabulous holiday - La Vinca is a lovely property. Well maintained, super clean, well equipped with a great pool. Ilario was friendly, welcoming and helpful. Highlights of the holiday - cycling in Lucca, swimming in the river, classic car driving - aswell as the bigger sights such as Pisa and Florence

Stunnig views in Garfagnana

  • 5 of 5

Vinca is probably the most beautiful and well appointed vacation property we have rented so far. The pictures on the website dont give any justice to the real beauty of the setting.

The house has beautifull and well manicured gardens ,infinity pool and the views are simply spectacular. Swimming with the views of the Garfagnana valley is what enchanted us the most. The property is very clean and well outfitted with everything you might need and exceeds expectations. For anybody that loves cooking, this house comes with a very well equipped kitchen. Spacious house, tastefully decorated, beautiful covered outdoor patio, built-in stone barbeque, beautifull garden, infinity pool, stunning views are among the feautures we liked the most about this house.

The property is ideally located in the Gardagnana region for day trips to Lucca by train for example or to the coast line in Massa Marittima. Also well located to shorter visits to local winery, (few km away) castles , and marble quarry (15 km away) which we highly reccomend.

Our host, Ilario, is genuinily kind and available for whatever you might need and the best reference for any piece information you might have on the area. The basket of organic vegetables he offered us, freshly picked from his garden was a true deligt.

We defenetly reccomend this vacation rental and wish to be able to visit again.

Ilario sends a warm hello, and looks forward to welcoming you another time. Thanks -- Lorraine at 'tuscan-retreats'

Beautiful location and house, generous people

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a secluded spot, with great views over a valley. The house was spotless, well-equipped, and very cozy. The owner welcomed us and was very helpful throughout our stay -- without being intrusive. We also appreciated the carefully prepared information about local shops, restaurants, etc. Overall, a great experience.

a beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

lovely spacious bedrooms rooms, nicely decorated and furnished throughout. the rooms looked and felt clean. A good selection of glasses and crockery to suit all wining and dining occasions.

The pool is stunning and not too deep, kept really clean at all times. would like to have a few more sun loungers especially as there were 8 of us.

the garden is kept immaculate and the grounds are well maintained with plenty of space.

We thought that Poggio would have more facilities, ie bakery, small grocery shop and a few restaurants but this was not the case, however you don't have to travel too far ( Camporgiano) to find all of these.

Ilario and Maria were always on hand if any problems. they were both friendly and helpful and looked after us well. thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are happy you loved the house and in particular the gardens and pool! We have passed your request for more sunbeds to the owner and are sure he will oblige. It is a shame the facilities in Poggio have closed (a sign of the times in rural areas here) but as you say it is less than a 5 min drive into Camporgiano with a choice of 4 restaurants and Castelnuovo the local market town is only 10 mins away. Thank you again.

Map

Car: necessary

Poggio is a small mountain village situated approximately 50 mins North Of Lucca, and 8km from the local market town of Castelnuovo, with its various bars & restaurants, and well-known Thursday morning market.

Poggio itself has a bar/grocer shop and a train station perfect for exploring those larger towns in air conditioned comfort.

The property is situated in its own extensive grounds/orchards, guaranteeing total privacy. The views from the house are absolutely beautiful, with the garden enjoying uninterrupted views over the Serchio Valley, which itself is nestled between the Apennine, and Apuane mountain ranges.

A perfect place for walking, fishing or just enjoying the countryside.

Lucca is 50 mins away; Barga 40 mins; Pisa 1 hr 20 mins, Florence circa 2 hrs.

This is an extremely popular property.

Please see separate information sheet with general information about the beautiful area of Garfganana Northern Tuscany.
