Farmhouse Villa Apartments With Large Pool In Beautiful Countryside - Maria (Sleeps 4, 2 Bedrooms)



Updated: 24-Oct-2016
Santa Lucia, Apartments in Villa Collemandina, Garfagnana, Tuscany, Italy - Santa Lucia Is In A Fantastic Location, Beautiful Scenery Which Is Amongst The Best In Tuscany

This beautifully located farm villa with a large swimming pool is situated in an olive grove and vineyard with lovely views of the surrounding mountains. With only a two minutes walk to a well stocked mini market selling local produce, nothing could be easier.

There are 3 apartments in the villa. The largest, apt. Lucia, has 3 bedrooms, and the other two have 2 bedrooms. Each has its own private patio area for outdoor dining.

The farm villa has good facilities including sauna, free Wi-Fi, satellite TV and X-box. There is also a fine public tennis court 100 metres from the villa.

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.

Mountain biking, hill walking and horse riding are all available locally.

About the Owner

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.

Peaceful retreat in stunning location

  • 4 of 5

Really comfortable apartment, clean and well equipped. BBQ, Patio and pool all offer stunning mountain views and delightful gardens surrounding the property. Rural location is very peaceful but there is a shop within walking distance and not too far to restaurants and pizzerias in nearby villages and towns (taxis always available and cheap). Giovanna was really welcoming and helpful during our stay. Would definitely recommend!
