Situated in beautiful surroundings excellent for hiking
These holiday houses were originally a farm. In 1998 the farm was restored and converted into 4 delightful apartments situated on a hilltop north of Lucca in the Garfagnana region, at about 600 above sea level. Here you can hike on lots of mountain trails. Tuscany's historic cities are not far, for ex. Gallicano with all its attractions is 10 km away, Lucca 50 km, while Florence and the coastal resort towns of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio are only a half hour drive from this place.
The main house where the farmer lived has been transformed into the units ref. i5.3355 and i5.3356. The cowshed is the ref. i5.3357, while the hay barn is the ref. i5.3358. The main building is situated 600 meters above sea level, and from there you have a fantastic view of the landscape with chestnut trees and steep wooded hillsides.
The access to the property is through a local asphalt road. The property is surrounded by a fence and a gate that is electrically operated, and each apartment is equipped with an internal communication system.
Since the property is built on a hillside, each apartment has its own terrace. In addition, there is a stone barbecue, a landscaped garden and a swimming pool of 5 x 10 m.
Each apartment has its own entrance and the terraces are equipped with lovely furniture in natural wood, where it is possible to sit and enjoy a meal while admiring the magnificent view.
The apartments are very comfortable, and the many wooden furnitures provide a pleasant atmosphere that harmonizes well with the surroundings. The restoration was carried out with respect for the typical Tuscan architecture with wood-beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls and terracotta floors. Where possible, the original stone walls and the interior wooden ceilings were retained and restored for the enjoyment of the guests.
All apartments have central heating but heating in winter is not included in the rental price (wood can be bought on site). Two children beds are available, need to be reserved when booking the apartment. There is also a washing machine at guests' disposal.
Apartment 2: 70 m2 - 4-5 persons:
This lovely apartment has its own private entrance on the side of the main house. In front of the apartment there is a small rightly located terrace, which offers stunning views over the Apuane mountains.
When entering the apartment, on the right there is a wooden staircase that leads up to a loft with a double room (with sloping roof, the lowest point is about one meter high) and a bathroom with toilet and shower. In the dining room there is a typical Tuscan fireplace, and a sofa bed too (to be used only by one person). Two doors lead away from the kitchen: one to a double room, the other to a shower room.
In this bedroom there are several arched windows, probably this was the Metato. Metato is an old Tuscan term for the room where chestnuts were stored and dried.
