A little about the area


This property is situated in the depths of the Garfagnana in a mountain location. The views really are unrivalled from this place, and one feels on is literally on 'top of the world'!

This is a location that just feels romantic...

There is a large flat garden with lots of room for children to run around in the cool mountain air.

However hot the daytime is, the evenings are wonderfully cool for sleeping due to the altitude.

Despite the remote location, the village of Carregine is 6km away and here you will find a couple of restaurants, bars and basic shops. There are also 3 restaurants within say 4km of the house.

The closest village of Metello often has small festas, either roasting the 'Porchetta' or Pizza evenings.

The area even has some skiing in the Winter and there is an alpine feel to some of the area.. Ideal for walkers!

The local market town of Castelnuovo, with all facilities and famous for its Thursday morning market is a 20 min drive. This town is a lively little town and also boasts its own Fortress.

For days out, why not visit Barga, a beautiful mediaeval town with cobbled streets, lots of quality restaurants, lovely architecture, great views, art galleries and a cathedral. Just a 40 min drive.

The Province City of Lucca is 1 hr 20 min away and is a wonderful day out. Here one can cycle around the fully intact mediaeval walls, meander around the narrow streets, visit some of the 100 churches, climb some towers, eat ice cream in the many piazzas, take in some opera, shop till you drop and then sleep under the trees in the wall 'park areas'! Or, just enjoy a leisurely drink and people watch for the afternoon....

Further afield there is Pisa, 1 hr 40 mins or Florence, say 2 hrs.

There are so many options more locally:

The Grotta del Vento - the famous Wind Caves

Swimming in the river

Visiting the ancient fortress of Verrucole

Visiting the Protected National Parks

Visiting Marble Quarries where the world famous Carrara Marble is found.

The list is endless if one wishes to explore, but it is difficult to want to leave this lovely house and its environs since it really is a little piece of paradise!

Pool with fantastic views

5 stars

The house is located in the mountains above Castelnuevo, fantastic view and very quiet. The plot is much larger than it looks in the pictures, plenty of space to play football. The pool is fantastic, large and with great views.

A magical place !!

5 stars

We spent a really great week in Pian Di Luca. We were welcomed with 6 bottles of wine from the very friendly owner. The pictures on the Internet are not deceiving, it is just wonderful. The view, the pool and the large garden are wonderful. We made extensive use of the pizza oven and grill. Small note, there is no dishwasher, but it didn't bother us at all. There were enough utensils for the kitchen and everything was very clean. There were also detergents, rags, sponges, detergents, garbage bags, tea towels, spices, etc. The contact through the agency was very friendly and helpful (extra information material!). There is a bigger house next door, which is also rented out. Since both plots are very large, that doesn't bother at all. You were all to yourself on the property. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a spectacular location, this is the right place for you. Children can let off steam in the garden and in the pool, while parents relax. We can recommend a trip to Pisa, a beautiful city. We would love to come back, thank you for everything !!

The holiday home is exactly like in the pictures. The view at the pool is fantastic. The house has a large fenced area on which the children and the dog felt very comfortable. It's secluded in a tiny place and you can enjoy the peace and quiet. Since it is relatively high, the summer nights are pleasantly cool and mosquitos hardly bother you. In the area there are many opportunities for walking and hiking, as well as many small villages as you would imagine in Tuscany. There is a pizza oven that you should definitely try. The contact with the owners and the agency went smoothly and was very friendly. We would definitely go again.

We spent a week in early June in the beautiful house. The pictures give a good overview, but when you stand there yourself it's just amazing. Everything in the house is clean and very well equipped. The kitchen really has all the utensils you need. We spent the evenings in front of the fireplace - not only because of the romance, it was still quite cool in the evening. We really enjoyed our stay here. The contact via Lorraine from the agency to the landlords Paolo and Andrea was uncomplicated and nice, thank you!
