Hidden Tuscany: 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.

We first visited this beautiful and "undiscovered" region of Tuscany in 1988, buying a house in 1994 and since then we have been heartened by the number of visitors who have returned time and time again to enjoy the stunning beauty of the Garfagnana, the generosity of its people, wonderful food and local culture.
We lived at Santa Lucia, a really nice farm in a beautiful area. Giovanna is a fantastic hostess, and the xBox kept the kids happy on the one day that it rained - Vera Smith, Sheffield.
Excellent accommodation for a quiet family holiday. The swimming pool is perfect and the scenery is like heaven on earth, really stunning.The owner held a wonderful pizza night which was very memorable, and we got lots of useful information from the agency. We had a few horse riding sessions as the local stables are great value. Christina Kingsley, Watford.

First of all I don't think you will find a better setting anywhere, the 360 scenery when you are sitting at the pool area will leave you speachless. The Lucia apartment was great for us and has all you need. Great space and all the feel of an authentic rural Italian villa but with all the modern tools we use in the UK. Giovanna is a very friendly and hospitable host, we forgot our keys on a trip back and she drove all over the local area to track down a spare from her father, grazie Giovanna ! There is so much to see in the area with small town after small town to explore. We'll be back in the future, can't say anymore than that.
