VILLA WITH LARGE PRIVATE POOL ON ECO FARM

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Villa Collemandina - Casa Merico

Villa with 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 7-9, Garden, Private Swimming Pool

The farmhouse is situated in the mountain resort village of Corfino, with spectacular views from the house and large pool. A small, separate house a few yards away can also be rented, increasing the capacity to 9 people. Get to know the horses and sheep on the farm and relax round the pool with a fantastic view of the Apuane Mountains. A unique holiday can be enjoyed at Casa Merico. The owner, Natalina, is a sheperdess who says she can provide 80% of a families weekly food with organic produce grown or reared on the farm. The accommodation and pool have been created with quiet relaxation in mind, but gentle and interesting activities can be witnessed on the farm. The farm still works in the traditional way, with sheep, goats, and horses living on the quiet green pastures nearby. Fantastic and safe for children, the farm is within the quiet, relatively traffic free medieval village of Corfino, with its interesting streets and alleys, shops and restaurants.

The house has two double bedrooms, one of which has an extra bed, and a twin bedroom. There is a lounge with an open fire, a kitchen area, and 2 bathrooms. Downstairs there is another lounge for children to play in. Outside there is a spacious terrace with table and loungers. There is a wood oven and a BBQ in the garden. There is a fantastic 12 x 6 metre pool with sunloungers and a great view over the mountains.

The environment is interesting for children, being a working farm where there is a constant presence of sheep, goats and friendly goats. The farm produces fine, traditional food, often to the great benefit of the guests! The farm lies just below the centre of the interesting village of Corfino, which is only 300 metres away. Corfino's summer climate is particularly appealing, the hot Tuscan summer benefiting from the fresh, mountain air.

Very, very peaceful holiday

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in Casa Merico at Agriturismo dal Nonno Merico for a week in mid-May as a group of three adults and a 6-year-old. We had a lovely time, my daughter loved to watch the hens and goats, and the adults had time to really recharge after a stressful winter. As a downside, it was a bit hard to find food sometimes since the village of Corfino is very small and the nearest villages even smaller. A good place to visit is the small town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana about 10 km from Corfino. It has cafés, gelaterias and restaurants as well as shops and a lovely old town with narrow streets and old stone buildings. All in all, Corfino is a beautiful village and the farm is great for a peaceful escape from city life, but don't expect too many activities especially outside the high season. The wifi didn't work half of the time we were there. The owners are very nice people but don't speak any English. Neither does anyone else in the village though.

There are 3 excellent family run restaurants in Corfino, only a one minute walk from the farm. The village itself is interesting, with fine buildings and wonderful views.

The area of Garfagnana is best known for its wonderful scenery, old fashioned ways and rustic food.

Dine out on the excellent value food, with a full Tuscan lunch with wine and coffee usually costing 9 euros. An evening main course typically costs 7-10 euros, and great pizzas are as little as 5 euros

Travel from Pisa to Lucca, to Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, then to Corfino.

An inexpensive local mini-bus taxi service is available for airport transfers and local trips
