Casa del' Orto

Overview
Villa -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Olivola, Province of Massa Carrara, Tuscany
Casa del' Orto (House of the Orchard) sits within a vineyard which produces 800 litres of wine per annum. The area is rich in wildlife, with roe deer, eagles and badgers all visitors to the land around the house.

The house has been restored by local craftsmen and suppliers, and where possible local materials were used.

The original part of the house dates from c. 1750 and stands on the footings of the original gatehouse to the 12th century Medici castle which is located just 100m from the house.

About the neighbourhood
Trout fishing is available nearby in the mountain streams and lakes.

For the more active there are numerous well marked walks and cycle routes. There is a full set of walking maps in the house plus a cycling guide to the Garfagnana which is just a short drive away. Cycle hire is available locally.

The undiscovered towns of Sarzana (15 minutes by car) and Fivizzano are nearby. Sarzana has a fantastic Saturday market during the summer months. Fivizzano is well worth a visit too, where in July an archery and flag throwing competition takes place as has been done since the middle ages.

The local town of Gragnola holds a medieval festival during August...
