Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana - Villa Cristina

Villa Cristina is a 3 bedroomed villa with a large private pool in Tuscany

Villa Cristina is a newly built farmhouse just outside the walls of the ancient medieval walled village of Gragnanella.

The villa has been created within a traditional farm, a peaceful, interesting place for a quiet holiday.The lovely garden area features a large private pool, The village is relatively traffic free, making this an interesting and safe environment for children to explore

Villa Cristina has a double room and 2 twin rooms, a large dining kitchen, and a bathroom.

In addition, there is a 2 bedroomed apartment which can only be rented with the larger house, potentially accommodating a larger group but ensuring that the pool and other facilities are always private and not shared

There is a sheltered outside eating area with BBQ. The owner would be happy to cook a traditional meal which will include the organic produce of the farm.

The farm makes a range of preserves and other home produce which are available according to the season.

There are terraced orchards above the garden. It is on one of the cross country trails which have been developed in this lovely region

There is access to a computer, and free wi-fi.

Guestbook comments from the manager

5 out of 5

Due to flights we arrived very late. We found the place easily by car.

Cristina and Paulo were there to meet us, even though it was so late. At our request they had provided food and groceries due to the shops being closed, but they also provided lovely homemade bread.

The photos don't do the place justice. The house is immaculate and finished to a very high standard, everything new. The rooms are large and comfortable. Everything is provided, even pool towels.

The large pool, grounds and location are excellent and private. The separate apartment/house is only rented with the main house, so nothing is shared unless with your own group. The children could swim, run free and loved it!

Even though it is behind the farm it is all very private, the only time we saw anyone was to hand us fresh fruit. Cristina even dropped hot doughnuts from the local sports club where she was playing nearby.

The local area is unspoilt and beautiful. Town, supermarkets and restaurants are a 10 min drive, a car is needed to explore.

A fantastic, relaxing and inexpensive holiday. The owners couldn't do enough for us. Can't recommend enough.

Thank You Cristina & Paulo!

Great holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great holiday at this property. The house was much bigger and better than expected .Everything was very clean and the house was well equipped. The owner Christina was lovely as was her family.The gave us fruit from the farm and also presents for our children when we left.The pool was great and entertained the kids. The village felt safe and there was a Pizza festival when we were there - best pizza ever ! It is a good base for exploring other villages, we particularly liked Barga. Thank you Christina and family!

Garfagnana is the best area in Tuscany for walking.

We have links with an outdoor activities company who offer guided walks and climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and world class gorge walking.

The local market town with good shops is only 2 miles away.

The area is well known for its excellent value cooking, using the best of local ingredients. A typical set lunch with 4 choices of pasta course, and 4 choices of main course costs only 9 Euros inclusive of bread, wine and coffee. It is possible to have a multi-course traditional Sunday lunch or dinner with ample wine, coffee and liquors for less than 25 Euros.

Tuscany is the most popular region of Italy, famous for its wonderful climate, landscape, and art treasures.

The famous 'art' cities of Florence, Sienna and Lucca are huge attractions, whilst the culinary tradition is there to be savoured.

Other Activities: We have strong links with Outdoor Activities providers
