Outside: Leading from the living area there is a large outdoor first floor private terrace with garden furniture and BBQ and wonderful views. In the garden there is the large private swimming pool (12m x 6M) with sunbathing area . Pool can be illuminated at hight. Out room, with washing machine. We can arrange someone to cook a meal on request, with the option to learn how to cook the meal too if of interest. A little about location: The farmhouse is situated above the village of Poggio in the Garfagnana valley circa one hour north of Lucca. Surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and a fruit orchard, you can enjoy the marvellous view of the unspoilt Garfagnana valley and the surrounding green mountains. There is a vegetarian restaurant less than a 5 minute walk away. The local villages of Poggio and Camorgiano are 2km and 4km respectively from the property, the latter of which has a couple of restaurants and bars, an inhabited castle, supermarket, and small Monday morning market. Both villages have train stations for easy exploring. Castelnuovo, the local market town is around a 10/15 minute drive away, and the mediaeval town of Barga is a circa 30 minute drive. Take a trip to Pisa in 90 mins and Florence in under 2 hours... The real beauty of the area though is its proximity to two important Protected National Parks, the surrounding mountains and the hundreds of hill top villages where it seems that time has stood still. TOURIST TAX - Do note that there is a local stay tax applicable at €1 per person per night, up to a maximum of 5 nights. This does not apply to children under 14.More
