With spacious rooms and private pool, this is a good opportunity to experience a summer holiday in one of the loveliest villages in Tuscany. The property is the ground floor of a large house, within a shaded garden which has a 9 metre private pool for the sole use of the guests. Entered through a wide hallway, there are 2 large bedrooms, one of which sleeps 3, and a large living room off the hall. There is a new bathroom and modern kitchen.
The garden has mature plants and is shaded by fine trees. There is a 9 m private swimming pool with a depth of 1.4 m and graduated steps into the pool. The owner lives discreetly in the apartment upstairs. His hospitality is excellent. He makes his own wine and fine preserves, oil and cheeses. The guests benefit from the cheeses and wine. Real Tuscany!

Castiglione is one of the main villages of the spectacularly beautiful area known as the Garfagnana, arguably the most beautiful part of all Tuscany.
Garfagnana: Garfagnana is 'Hidden Tuscany' at its best. With its stunning scenery it is the best area in Tuscany for walking and outdoor activities. We have close ties with an outdoor activities company who offer many international class adventures.
Castelnuovo, the nearby market town, has many restaurants, cafes, bars, supermarkets and all other types of shops. There is a tourist information office and a weekly market selling a wide variety of fashion, household goods, flowers, fruit and vegetables.
There is a restaurant and bar within a minutes walk from the villa. An excellent shop/bar, where you can buy decent wine on draft and excellent local produce, is 5 minutes walk
