Overview

Description

Capanne2

This is a beautiful apartment with a private entrance on the front part of the cottage, slightly hidden by the corner of a house. In front of the apartment is a small, well placed terrace, from which one has a magnificent view of the Apuan Alps. Inside, a wooden staircase leads upwards. On the right, two steps down, is the dining room with a typical Tuscan fireplace and a bed couch. A balcony divides the kitchen area, including a gas-stove, fridge and oven, and the dining room. Two doors lead away from the kitchen: one to a double bedroom, the other to a bathroom and shower, one step higher. The room has a number of arched windows. This was probably the “METATO” of the house (an ancient Roman term used for a room in which chestnuts were stored and left to dry). Returning to the entrance, the wooden staircase leads up to a room with a double bed and a door to a small bathroom including a sink, toilet and shower. The roof of the room is tilted and about 1 metre high at the lowest point.

About David Saisi

Ciao,

I'm David and from 2005 I manage Le Capanne holiday house. Before I worked as an HR manager in a TLC company. From 2005 to now I have seen about 1000 persons in my property and each one has helped me increasing my love for Garfagnana area. From 2013 I'm a mountains guide and I manage the Battiferro park in Fornovolasco: we offer canyoning for families and a lot of fun.

See you soon

David

David Saisi purchased this apartment in 2005

Why David Saisi chose Media Valle del Serchio

The first time I saw The huts in 2005 fell in love with this place with spectacular views of the surrounding villages and mountains. Since then every time I come here I'm happy with my choice

marvellous, quiet idyll in the hills

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and beautifully kept property: the four apartments are discrete, so there is plenty of privacy. The pool is gorgeous and the garden well kept. A real idyll. Davide, the owner, is very helpful and has a lot of good suggestions on things to do in the area. The house is absolutely perfect if you want relaxed days in a beautiful corner of Italy.

Stunning views in an authentic setting...

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place outside the ordinary, with fantastic views, great pool area and a super friendly host this is it. A combination of an authentic old place in the most beautiful and quiet setting, however with facilities of great quality. Thanks David!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place we highly recommend!! Daniele and his family have done such an amazing job in making your holiday exactly as it should be: they are lovely people. The house is beautiful and has everything you need. Fully equipped and lovely decorations. The property is wide, well maintained and the scenery is gorgeous. The kids loved playing in the pool, and explore the gardens.

We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and family and would not hesitate to come back ourselves one day!

Vanessa, Jasper and two kids

Traumhafte Lage. Paradies für Naturverbundene

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage der Wohnung ist einfach traumhaft. Die Berge liegen vor einem, der Ausblick ist herrlich. Alles ist super sauber, alles notwendige vorhanden. Der Pool ist klasse. Man sieht beim Schwimmen in die herrliche Bergwelt. Die Wandermöglichkeiten sind unbegrenzt und der Vermieter ist ein total hilfsbereiter und netter Mensch. Wir waren nicht das letzte mal dort.

Special interest holidays:

Every Wednesday on request you can enjoy our trip on Alpi Apuane at euro 50 per person lunch included. Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on request you can enjoy "Degustibus": by bus we go to a Restaurant testing Garfagnana tipycal food. The price is euro 40 per person (bus+dinner), baby menu are availables at euro 15 (bus+dinner).

From 2013 I manage a canyonig park for families called Parco del Battiferro in Fornovolasco: if you like nature Garfagnana is a paradise and we suggest you the best you can do!

Coast/Beach:

The Viareggio and Versilia coast is about 75 minutes away by car but can also be reached by bus or train. The Cinque Terre is also within easy reach by car or by train (about 2,5 hours).

Travel:

Nearest airport is Pisa approx 1 hour drive away. This gives you the choice of flying from locations throughout the UK and also allows you to take advantage of the many low cost airlines that now fly to the region.

Although there is train service to Barga-Gallicano (about 10 km from the property) we would suggest that a car is essential.

Distances:

Once you arrive, with so much space and such peaceful surroundings it is hard to tear yourself away but the close proximity to many of Italy's major attractions including Lucca and Pisa make this an ideal base from which to explore.

Barga, a mediaeval walled town with summer music festival and beautiful 11th century cathedral, 20 km. Lucca, 'city of art', has cultural events, antique markets and many fine shops, 50 km. Pisa, with its leaning tower, 'Campo Santo' and riverside palaces, 45km.

Further Details:

Restaurants: Fobbia restaurant and pizzeria is at 4km. Eliseo excellent restaurant is at 10km. Il Totto restaurant for homemade food is at 4km. Il Rondone restaurant is at the Grotta del Vento. Gallicano with all facilities is at 10km.
