Garfagnana is a stunning province of Lucca in Tuscanny, central Italy. It is a wonderful part of Italy to visit and there are plenty of Garfagnana holiday homes available. The region is famous for its striking natural scenery. During the summer months the region's pastel green pastures and valleys are alive with wild flowers, such as jonquils, asphodels and peonies. La Garfagnana is also well known for its rare mushrooms and black and white truffels.
The region is home to the only canyon in Tuscany: the Orrido of Botri that the river of Rio Pelago runs through. The Orrido of Botri canyon and the hills and valleys of Garfagnana hills are a hiking paradise and best explored with one of the local guides, who you can meet through the Garfagnana holiday lettings in the region.
Garfagnana has several beautiful little towns and villages, such as Barga in the Valle del Serchio and the 8th century town of Castelnuovo Garfagnana ( the region's capital). They are ideal places for visitors to be based and the best way to enjoy the region is by renting one of the Garfagnana holiday homes. It is possible to stay at a typical Tuscan cottage either in one of towns or out in the countryside, with the spectacular Tuscan countryside on your doorstep. Tuscany is also world renowned for its delicious Italian cuisine and fine wines, which are all fresh and available locally. Of course no trip to Tuscany is complete without visiting the region's spectacular vineyards. As well as renting holiday accommodation in Garfagnana, it is also well worth renting a hire car so you can come and go as you please.
