Luxury villa near Barga - set in a twenty-five acre estate in the tranquil mountains outside the village of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, this is an immaculately presented property enjoying breathtaking views across the surrounding hills and mountains high in the Serchio River valley.
The villa itself has a homely Italian feel, with terracotta-tiled floors and beamed ceilings. French doors lead from the living room onto the terrace, which overlooks the stunning range of mountains known as the Alpi Apuane, and most notably the L'Uomo Morto peak; this mountain range provides the beautiful white marble used by architects and artists across Italy, including Michelangelo. There are large, sloping lawns around the property, ideal for children to run around. There is also an annex, if one or two of your party would like a little extra privacy.
There are many small villages waiting to be discovered in the surrounding Garfagnana area, as well as the various local culinary delights such as excellent home-made cheeses and cold cuts: in the autumn the region is well known for its high-quality chestnuts. For day trips, the lively historical walled town of Lucca is a lovely 30 mile drive following the beautiful Serchio river and the beaches of the Versilia coast are less than 1 hour away. Local amenities and restaurants are just a short drive away, or you can follow one of the many hiking trails across the hills to reach a good local restaurant in about 40 mins on foot. The nearby town of Barga hosts a Jazz festival each August and artists come from all over the world to participate.
