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 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.

a dream of a country home in Tuscany

5 of 5
We (couple + dog) enjoyed a wonderful week in this very well-equipped, well-maintained and lovingly decorated country home. We found everything according to the description. The houskeeper Anna was very friendly and helpful, especially with the centralheating that was absolutely necessary as we stayed around Easter of 2017. We loved the tiny hamlet of Castello, the silence, stunning view of the surrounding hills and the walks through the olive tree gardens as well as the proximity to Lucca. Dear Jenny, we've already recommended this house to friends and plan to come back sometime! Kind regards, Uli, Heinz + Yuma

Comfortable villa in the Tuscan Hills

5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Villa Pennechio. The house was very comfortable, and the garden lovely with beautiful views down to Lucca and of the surrounding hills. Our grandson enjoyed playing in the extensive olive grove garden. Well placed for exploring the area. We spent two days in Lucca, and could have spent more if we had the time. Lucca is a beautiful town, and we had great fun on our quinquecycle around the city walls. There are numerous palazzo style villas in the area, our favourite being Villa Reale di Marlia, a short drive away, where we were the only visitors on a glorious day. We enjoyed walking on the footpaths to the local country restaurant Canapino and to the hillside villages above the villa. The local supermarket, Esselunga was very well stocked.
