In one of the most romantic parts of northern Tuscany is the Garfagnana mountain range, beloved by Lord Byron and Shelley. It is also one of the most interesting, natural areas with gorges, rivers, torrents, medieval villages, churches, and spectacular, scenic drives. At nearly 500 meters above sea level, this beautiful villa perches in absolute tranquility on a hillside looking onto the verdant, rising mountains. The house is well furnished, is spacious and has some typical, Tuscan, covered loggia terraces from where the views are breathtaking.
The villa overlooks the small hamlet of San Romano, a short walking distance, with a mobile shop which visits every day except Sunday. On request, a lady from the village can prepare authentic Italian homemade dishes and pizzas. Six kms distant is the 11th century town of Borgo a Mozzano for all necessities. It is also 4 kms from the main road which leads to Lucca at 20kms, the coast line of Viareggio is 45 kms and Pisa is 42 kms and Florence is an hour and ten minute drive. Many footpaths of varying degrees of difficulty are to be found in the mountains and much local information is available. There are also mountain bikes available for guests to use.
This villa is well furnished and spacious. At the upper level are 1 bedroom with bunk beds, en suite bathroom with shower, washing machine and a door to a courtyard. The master bedroom and one twin bedded room share a bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, shower cubicle and each has doors onto a loggia terrace. Also on this floor is a spacious formal sitting/dining room and informal sitting/dining room both leading onto a central, furnished courtyard.
