Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana
A self-catering rental located in the quiet country with all comforts
A beautiful renovated country villa offering a panoramic terrace, a large swimming pool and a 25 acres estate all around. This property is a perfect place for your holidays: peace and quiet of the countryside, view of the Apuan Alps, a comfortable house near the various services available in the centre of Castelnuovo Garfagnana.
As soon as you cross the main door, you find a large, welcoming room that serves as kitchen, dining room and sitting room.
There is a 32' television, a satellite decoder, a DVD player and a powerful stereo equipment. On the ground floor you also find one of the two bathrooms, and a small storage area.
Upstairs, there's the sleeping area: a bathroom and three bedrooms, two of which are adjacent to a spacious and characteristic Garfagnana roof terrace (altana) from which you can admire the Apuan peaks.
Outside, under the covered structure, there is a long tavern as well as a wood-burning oven to cook pizzas and bread.
Just in front of the villa, there is a special area dedicated to your barbecue parties with bbq, stone surface, stone basin, table and benches covered by a big umbrella.
Beside the villa, there's a recently renovated stone dependence (for 2 persons) composed by: a bedroom (with double bedroom) and a en-suite bathroom.
There are 2 different rental options:
1) Villa rental only (up to 7 sleeps max). In this case the dependence will remain empty to guarantee the maximum privacy and quiet.
2)Villa + stone dependence (up to 9 people max). During the high season (July and August) this is the only possible rental option.
The panorama that exists once you reach the estate is spectacular: from the covered terrace and the garden you can admire the peaks of Pania and 'Uomo Morto' , and the bell tower of the village of Sassi.
The view is even more suggestive during the autumn-winter season when the trees in the natural amphitheatre that surrounds the estate are a blaze of golden yellow and the mountains are dusted with snow.
You reach the estate on a road that passes through a thick chestnut wood, and as soon as you enter the gate you immediately notice the villa: an old house that has been completely rebuilt (works finished in 2003) respecting the original style, as demonstrated by the 'mandolata' and the two windows that flank the front door. 25 acres of land surround the house: that will be surely appreciated by families and lively children.
In the gardens there are some outdoor games : children swings, table football, table tennis and 2 mountain bikes.
The pool is open from early April till late October.It's 12x6 metres large and 1,40 metres deep . It has a nice water cascade on the front side and infinity effect. Sunbeds, chairs and swings sofa are available by the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner
When we reached the top of the road and saw Pruneta di Sopra, we realized we had found a very special place. Such a beautiful setting! Fabrizio and Alessandro were there to great us with a lovely almond cake and a bottle of wine ! The weather couldn't have been better all week and we barbequed most evenings and used the pizza ovenonce. The swimming pool was perfect too, very clean and we all used it. Enjoyed a visit to Lucca .
