Holiday Rental House
Set in a perfect location, edged by woodland, and with the most stunning views, this lovely little detached one bedroom 'metato' is the perfect place for a peaceful break. This character Metato has been recently restored, retaining a rustic feel, and with one double bedroom and small sofabed is a perfect simple choice of accommodation for a couple. Complete with shower room, and living/kitchen/diner with wood stove, there is a quaint feel to the property. The covered terrace area overlooking the pool, with the mountains beyond is the 'pièce di résistance' of this house. It is a perfect place for relaxing or dining al fresco, and is surrounded by open views to two sides (one side 'country' and the other mountains) with woodland walking behind.

A little about location: Set in a perfect location, edged by woodland, and just 800M from the walled village of Castiglione, and within walking distance of a couple of restaurants. This character site, which used to be a tiny hamlet has been lovingly restored, and commands amazing views of the Apuane mountains, with a panorama of the Uomo Morto....Castiglione's most striking attraction is the Medieval bridge built by Spinetta Malaspina in the 13th century. The village is also famous for its well-preserved 13th-century medieval walls with large towersm and also its castle. The views from all parts of the village are breathtaking. Set in the heart of the Garfagnana, distances are as follows: Castiglione - basic facilities 800M and restaurant. Pieve Fosciana - supermarket, good restaurant etc 4km. Castelnuovo di Garfagnana - local market town, famous for its Thursday morning market and with all facilities including train station 7km. Lucca - stunning medieaval walled city 50km. Pisa - 90 mins or so. Florence - say 1 hr 50 mins. Mediaeval town of Barga - half hour. This location is a real hideaway, but convenient for exploring the area.... More
