Farmhouse Apartments in Calomini, Garfagnana,Tuscany - Stunning location for relaxing or exploring Garfagnana
This hay-loft is separated from the main house and can be reached by a path to the left of the cottage that leads directly to the open gallery of this apartment. Since the path is a bit steep, we do not recommend this apartment to elderly persons. Instead, it is ideal for young couples on their honeymoon because it is separated from the rest of the cottage, and the open gallery offers a magnificent view of the century-old forests of the Apuan Alps. From the gallery one can access the living room. Also here there is beautiful fireplace and a bed couch. The dining table is close to a door that opens up to the terrace. In a corner created by the wooden staircase upwards, is a fully equipped kitchen. At the end of the stairs is a double bedroom, with a window door to the upper terrace, and a window where the original, typical windscreen bricks have been preserved. In the bedroom, a door leads to a small fully equipped bathroom.

About David Saisi
Ciao, I'm David and from 2005 I manage Le Capanne holiday house. Before I worked as an HR manager in a TLC company. From 2005 to now I have seen about 1000 persons in my property and each one has helped me increasing my love for Garfagnana area. From 2013 I'm a mountains guide and I manage the Battiferro park in Fornovolasco: we offer canyoning for families and a lot of fun. See you soon David
David Saisi purchased this Barn in 2005
Why David Saisi chose Fabbriche di Vallico
The first time I saw The huts in 2005 fell in love with this place with spectacular views of the surrounding villages and mountains. Since then every time I come here I'm happy with my choice
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
Great stay with beautiful views!
We have just returned from a great week in Capanne 4. The views are spectacular, and we spent a very relaxing week in Tuscany. David was a great host - he met us on arrival, brought us fresh bread and pastries on two days and gave us great advice re the area.
Go to this property if you want to get away from busy life - it is 30 minutes drive to Gallicano, the nearby town. Also, don't expect great wifi and telephone/tv signal in the mountains.
However, if you want to relax in the mountains, with views and a pool this is just perfect - we will be returning!
Special interest holidays: Every Wednesday on request you can enjoy our trip on Alpi Apuane at euro 50 per person lunch included. Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on request you can enjoy "Degustibus": by bus we go to a Restaurant testing Garfagnana tipycal food. The price is euro 40 per person (bus+dinner), baby menu are availables at euro 15 (bus+dinner). From 2013 I manage a canyonig park for families called Parco del Battiferro in Fornovolasco: if you like nature Garfagnana is a paradise and we suggest you the best you can do! Coast/Beach: The Viareggio and Versilia coast is about 75 minutes away by car but can also be reached by bus or train. The Cinque Terre is also within easy reach by car or by train (about 2,5 hours). Travel: Nearest airport is Pisa approx 1 hour drive away. This gives you the choice of flying from locations throughout the UK and also allows you to take advantage of the many low cost airlines that now fly to the region. Although there is train service to Barga-Gallicano (about 10 km from the property) we would suggest that a car is essential. Distances: Once you arrive, with so much space and such peaceful surroundings it is hard to tear yourself away but the close proximity to many of Italy's major attractions including Lucca and Pisa make this an ideal base from which to explore. Barga, a mediaeval walled town with summer music festival and beautiful 11th century cathedral, 20 km. Lucca, 'city of art', has cultural events, antique markets and many fine shops, 50 km. Pisa, with its leaning tower, 'Campo Santo' and riverside palaces, 45km. Further Details: Restaurants: Fobbia restaurant and pizzeria is at 4km. Eliseo excellent restaurant is at 10km. Il Totto restaurant for homemade food is at 4km. Il Rondone restaurant is at the Grotta del Vento. Gallicano with all facilities is at 10km.
