Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana - La Vinca

A beautiful newly and very carefully restored barn, set in the heart of the Garfagnana region of Northern Tuscany, 1 hr 15 minutes north of Lucca.

This detached villa with private pool has been lovingly refurbished by the owner using traditional materials, and warm tuscan colours to give a rustic, but very homely feel to the property.

The 'barn' has beamed ceilings and traditional style flooring throughout and is furnished with a pleasing mix of the modern and antique. The ceilings are high, giving a good sense of light and space, and the views from the house are beautiful......

As well as the open plan well equipped kitchen, diner, living area, there are 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, one of which is ensuite, and one of which boasts a bath tub.

Outside there is a covered pergola, gardens with apple trees and private infinity style pool of 10M x 5M. Open from 21st March to 30th September.

This is a perfect place to relax, and enjoy a real feeling of yesteryear, whilst surrounded by modern comforts.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Well, back home now after a truly wonderful time in Italy and I just wanted to thank you again for all the help you, your husband and Benito gave me.

We all loved Vinca but had very fond memories of Caprifoglio too so would find it hard to choose which one if we are ever able to return. Ilario and Maria were so kind and helpful and it was a delight to meet them again.

Lovely Holiday House.

  • 4 out of 5
This "Agrotourist" house, located on an old farm property, was very close to what we'd hoped for from the reviews. It was clean and generally well appointed....(could have used some toilet paper on arrival for tired visitors arriving after dark?) But other wise a great place to relax. The pool is gorgeous....the grounds full of lovely fruit covered trees.

Instructions to get there were a bit vague but we found it. Be prepared to have to drive for food....and stock up. The care taker is delightful and helpful.

Local mountain driving was fun...tons of great old towns to explore. Easy access to Lucca and Florence for day trips. I think in two weeks we covered most of the recommended ones.

Thanks for a lovely time. Will definitely recommend you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the house and the area!
Sorry about the lack of loo roll - all our properties should have at least 2 in each bathroom as a 'start off'. We will remind the cleaners of this.
It is a good idea to stock up with food, but there are two or three mini markets in Camporgiano - 5 minute drive, and supermarkets in Castelnuovo say a 12/13 minute drive away. There are also plenty of places to eat out.
Glad the garden and pool were enjoyed - the owner is a landscape gardener, so they are beautiful!!!

Best ever place and vacation!

The property and location was far more better than described and seen from pictures. We were very satisfied with owner support. I certainly recommend La Vinca to my friends and come back soon!

Poggio is a small mountain village situated approximately 50 mins North Of Lucca, and 8km from the local market town of Castelnuovo, with its various bars & restaurants, and well-known Thursday morning market.

Poggio itself has a bar/grocer shop and a train station perfect for exploring those larger towns in air conditioned comfort.

The property is situated in its own extensive grounds/orchards, guaranteeing total privacy. The views from the house are absolutely beautiful, with the garden enjoying uninterrupted views over the Serchio Valley, which itself is nestled between the Apennine, and Apuane mountain ranges.

A perfect place for walking, fishing or just enjoying the countryside.

Lucca is 50 mins away; Barga 40 mins; Pisa 1 hr 20 mins, Florence circa 2 hrs.

This is an extremely popular property.
