Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Italy your home away from home

Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is the main market town of the mountainous Garfagnana region of northern Tuscany. The whole region is almost impossibly beautiful, colloquially known as the ‘national park of Tuscany’, and a villa in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana places you right in the heart of the region. The terracotta roofs of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana provide a beautiful contrast to the green of the thick pine woods that carpet the Apennine hills and the Apuan Alps.

The Garfagnana countryside is among the best places to walk in Italy.

The highest mountain in Tuscany, Monte Prado is within easy reach of accommodation in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, as are the maze of forest trails, rugged peaks of the Apuan Alps and the spectacular landscapes of the Orecchiella Natural Park. These trails do not only facilitate unforgettable walking holidays, but also magnificent mountain biking and horse riding holidays too.

There are a handful of dammed valleys in Garfagnana, producing much of the area’s electricity, but also providing idyllic spots in which to sail and kayak. Wildlife thrives in the man-made lakes, and silently gliding through the still waters means that you have a great chance to spot some of the rarer species native to the area, including golden eagle, boar and even bears.

Happy in Capanori

4 of 5
Stefania's house is well located and in a stunning position with views across olive groves to the mountains beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. It is only 15 minutes to Lucca and about 45/50 minutes to a lovely beach. A good supermarket is 10 minutes away. The only downside for me was that the shower cubicle was rather small. Overall a great place to stay

A house with an amazing view and very peacefull.

5 of 5
If you are looking for peace and quit in a beautifull environment, than this house is ideal. The owners are very helpful and daughter Sylvia knows English what is always helpful if your Italian doesn't go much further than "bon jorno" The distance to the nearest bigger towns (Lucca, Pisa) shouldn't be underestimated, but still feasible for a daytrip. The cycling is heavier then expected with quite challenging climbs. Tip: the bakery in Carregine (10 minutes drive) offers baguettes even better than in France and you should try the salty Manninna. We will return to this beautiful place.
