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.

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.

Memorable trip to Villa carla

5 of 5
Wonderful villa, private pool and garden, spectacular views and close to the town to take advantage of the local restaurants. The mountain environment was wonderful. We had a specific requirement for wheelchair access and for anyone requiring this the villa was very suitable. Local taxis were able to take the wheelchair also. Thoroughly recommend the villa to all parties

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
