Vergemoli Barn Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse Apartments in Calomini, Garfagnana,Tuscany - Stunning location for relaxing or exploring Garfagnana

Farmhouse complex with 4 beautiful apartments on a hilltop not far from Lucca. The stone farmhouse sits at 600 meters altitude and offers views over the surrounding countryside with chestnut forests, and steep wooded mountains. It is a little paradise from which one can hike all the mountain trails and visit the historical cities of central Tuscany. Gallicano with all facilities is at 10kms, Barga is at 18kms and Lucca is at 50kms. Firenze and the seaside at Forte dei Marmi are an hour’s and half drive away.

Details for Capanne4 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2, 1 Bathroom

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.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

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 Lucca Area

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

Great stay with beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

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!

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.

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.
