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.

Things to do on holiday in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Italy

The Garfagnana countryside is among the best places to walk in Italy. Trekking up mountain paths or leisurely walks down the lush valleys both provide many hours of entertainment, allowing you to discover Italy’s best kept secret for yourself. 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.

If you are staying in a holiday rental villa in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana on Epiphany Night (6th Jan), you will hear the sounds of musicians playing ancient songs throughout the streets of the town. Befanate is a traditional celebration in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana occurring every year, and is usually accompanied by great feasts and merry making.

Places to visit on holiday in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Italy

As you explore the Garfagnana region you will stumble across charming hill town which look to have changed very little in centuries. Hill towns including Molazzana, Vergamoli and Corfino are among the most beautiful, all of which offer superb cuisine and plenty of little family run restaurants to enjoy.

Weather in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Italy

Castelnuovo di Garfagnana benefits from a beautiful Mediterranean climate which sees dry summers and temperatures of up to 28C. Winters are also very mild, with temperatures still peaking at around 12C and less than 1 in 3 rainy days, which makes a holiday home in Pieve Fosciana a great place to escape the English winter.

Travel to Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Italy

The closest airport to a holiday rental in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is Pisa Airport (PSA) 75km away.

Due to the remote location of a Castelnuovo di Garfagnana property, taking a hire car from the airport is advisable.

Brilliant holiday

5 of 5
We had a great time in this excellent holiday home. We arrived to a fine welcome pack of bread, cheese, fruit, milk and wine from the kind owner, Enrico. It was a warm day so we all immediately dived into the pool, a very big pool which was well used during our holiday. The house was well equipped and spacious, although the bedrooms were small. The garden is very peaceful, with plenty of space for kids to run and explore, so different from the city. I enjoyed walking down to the local town Castelnuovo, which had a good market and loads of cafes. There are excellent wine shops in town, and there seemed to be a lot of events on. My favourite place to visit was Barga, a little farther on, which is a town we visited some evenings for the music festival and market under the stars. We also took a train to Lucca, a fabulous town, and one day picnicked in a old castle in the mountains…we were the only people there, brilliant! We also enjoyed a couple of delicious surprisingly inexpensive meals at the local restaurant, which is highly recommended. We would love to go back sometime soon.

a paradise nestled on the hills of Lucca

5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Emily for a week in December 2016 with our two young daughters and another couple. The villa and grounds are absolutely beautiful, the furnishings are comfortable, and the pool is magnificent. Sonia was a wonderful host who helped us to organize day trips and excursions into the surrounding countryside. She also helped us hire a local babysitter and a local cook who made dinner for us several nights. The views from the villa, high in the Tuscan hills, are breathtaking. It was the vacation of a lifetime, and I will never forget it. I can't recommend this villa highly enough. It is a true treasure.

Nice house, great pool, peaceful village

5 of 5
We loved our holiday this year. The house was very clean and the garden and pool were beautiful. The area is very picturesque and and the agency gave us great local information. We visited the local towns of Barga and Castelnuovo, and we also went horseriding, but most days we just relaxed and played around the pool. Our kids are young, but they were able to explore the tiny village which has no traffic, a good experience for them, and the locals were very kind. Both weekends we were there there was a pizza festival with music and dancing, best pizza ever. I would recommend this villa for a peaceful family holiday
