Casa Paladini was built in 1904 and has been lovingly restored with all of its original features maintained throughout such as beamed chestnut ceilings and boards, original stone fireplace and chestnut furniture, doors and windows and stone faced interior and exterior. The cottage is set in a chestnut grove along the ancient road connecting Castilgione di Garfagnana with the high mountain villages and pastures above. The closest point reachable by car is 250 metres away, although 4-wheel drives will have no problem making it to the cottage. The village of Chiozza with its pizzeria is 1.5 km away and the award-winning Castiglione di Garfagnana is 3km away on foot through the forest. Several walking routes start right from the cottage door including a 2km walk to a medieval bridge and waterfall, good for swimming in the summertime. There is a well-tended herb garden right in front of the cottage with potatoes, tomotoes, cabbage etc. and herbs available to pick depending on season. Casa Paladini is an ideal retreat for artists / honeymooners / anyone looking to get away from the noise of the modern world. The only sounds at night are the nearby running stream and wildlife in close proximity to the cottage including wild boar, deer, crickets etc. Castilgione with its shops and restaurant is a 30-minute walk down the mountain, and an excellent mobile supermarket comes to within 300 metres of the cottage once a week.
liked the deer
never saw the wild boar but they must have been everywhere to judge by the ground
Colm friendly and helpful
This cottage has been simply and beautifully restored. We loved it the moment we saw it. It is secluded yet within easy reach of any amenities you would want. We found it to be ideally located to reach the many attractions in Garfagnana and was a glorious haven to come back to and chill out. Had great fun with the pizza oven! Our caretaker took great care to make sure everything was perfect for our stay. Excellent customer service from the owner also. thoroughly recommended.
Si vous connaissez le merveilleux livre de Roberto Innocenti et Roberto Piumini CASA DEL TEMPO qui montre, dans une série d'illustrations précises et touchantes, l'évolution d'une propriété paysanne toscane entre 1900 et 1999, et si vous voulez vous transporter dans les temps et habiter dans une de ces images, allez passer une semaine à Casa Paladini. J'y suis allée avec mon père, agé de 75 ans, et ma fille de 6 ans, et nous y sommes passés des vacances très agréables pour nous tous. La forêt tout autour est magnifique, les gens du coin très accueillants, il y a un superbe musée ethnographique tout près, à San Pellegrino in Alpe, et n'oubliez pas de goûter au Vino dei Poderi (un vin local de Camporgiano) qui est un régal.
The cottage has been renovated beautifully simple understated and just right with details where it matters. We sat outside in the evenings around the pizza oven watching fireflies and listening to the rustles of nature ....magical!
The location is ideal secluded yet not isolated with all the facilities you need within reach.
