Make a holiday villa in Garfagnana your home away from home

Garfagnana is a place of great scenic beauty in the northern part of Tuscany, with a landscape of oak and chestnut forests, orchards, meadows, vineyards, churches and ancient villages. The large valley and mountain range lies close to the historic towns of Lucca, Pisa and Florence, but also has its own historic hotspots of castles and fortresses. In addition to its old buildings, Garfagnana's past can be glimpsed in fascinating museums. Nature and outdoor activities are the area's biggest draws with year-round active pursuits including skiing, trekking and horse riding. Driving through valley roads to discover small towns and villages perched on cliffs is another must for the holiday itinerary.

For superlative comfort and enjoyment, HomeAway has a wonderful range of holiday villas in Garfagnana situated in towns, villages and gorgeous countryside. Guests want for nothing as spacious holiday properties feature such essential amenities as televisions with satellite and cable TV, washing machines and internet access.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: With so much beautiful scenery and natural splendour, Garfagnana has much to offer lovers of the great outdoors. Hikers can head out into the mountains where they’ll find long, winding and strenuous routes. There are also numerous tracks for cyclists. Meanwhile, mountaineers will love scaling some of the peaks of the Apuan Alps. The subterranean world beneath Garfagnana can be explored in the Wind Grotto, a series of stalactite and stalagmite-covered caves and grottoes under the Pania Secca mountain.

-Historic monuments: Garfagnana's landscape is dotted with a number of old castles and fortresses. In the south of Garfagnana, find the ancient Fortress of Trassilico with its splendid tower. The Verrucole Fortress that we see today dates from the 15th century and is open during the summer months. The medieval Castiglione di Garfagnana's Fortress is well worth a visit for its towers and panoramic views. Inside this walled town, you will also discover a selection of Castiglione di Garfagnana holiday homes.

-Sports: Those who love to get active on their holidays have much to look forward to all year round. There’s skiing and snow-shoeing among other snow-based activities in Passo delle Radici, Casone di Profecchia and Careggine during the winter. When the warmer weather comes there's horse riding through forests, fields and mountains. The area's artificial lakes and natural waterways are popular with fishing enthusiasts, while golfers can perfect their swing at the Garfagnana Golf Club located in Braccicorti.

-Museums: As well as natural beauty, Garfagnana shows off its cultural riches in a handful of museums. The Archaeological Museum of Territory in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana features many ancient relics from the second and third centuries BC. To see our range of rentals here, browse our page of holiday rentals in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. Inside the Natural History Museum at Orecchiella Park, visitors will find three floors of exhibits that cover many aspects of the area's natural environment. One of the most fascinating museums is the Ethnographic Museum Don Luigi Pellegrini that houses more than 200 years’ worth of tools and artisan work from Garfagnana. It is housed inside the medieval hospital of San Pellegrino.

-Family adventures: Visitors with Garfagnana holiday homes will discover fun for all the family at the area’s adventure parks. The adventure park in the forest of Buffardello offers canopy tours through the trees with routes for adults and children. Thrill seekers who like to feel the adrenalin coursing through their veins can try white-water rafting, caving and rocking climbing at Parco del Levigliese.

-Food and drink: Garfagnana is renowned for its mushrooms that are collected from wooded areas all over the region. Other specialities that you will find in the cuisine and on restaurant tables are hill country cheeses and milk from goats that graze in upland meadows and Garfagnana honey. Potato bread has been a dietary staple for years.

Weather in Garfagnana

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 Garfagnana

The most convenient way to get to holiday apartments in Garfagnana is via Lucca which is served by airports at Florence and Pisa. From Lucca, it's a picturesque drive by rental car into the valley. Public transport options are available but they are sparse. A car is needed because of the distances between some of the main towns, villages and attractions.

We stayed in this beautiful property in the Italian hills and have returned feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Our hosts were wonderful providing luxury accommodation that was spotlessly clean with everything we needed for a relaxing break away. The property is lovely and spacious as well as being cool and airy with no need for air-con even on the hottest days. The views are breath taking and the property offers 5 star accommodation. The flat is provided with everything you need to cook, entertain or just relax. The pool was fantastic - clean and refreshing and perfect for the long hot Italian days. Ivano, Pat and Julien our hosts were so friendly and helpful. They were there if we needed advice or to let us browse through the DVD collection they have for guests but otherwise left us to enjoy our holiday and relax. Ivano met us and showed us around the property and left us with a really thoughtful welcome pack of food and wine....he even left pasta and a Bolognese sauce, perfect for our first night supper! Prior to our journey he gave us excellent directions to the property as well as local knowledge about shops and services along the way so we could stock up on provisions for our holiday. In the property there was a folder filled with expert advise about local restaurants, shops beaches and local sights which was really helpful and allowed us to plan great days out. Ivano even booked tables for us at restaurants when we ate out to ensure we were looked after like locals!! The property is set in a small village but with a car we were able to enjoy travelling around to the coast and other towns. Local food was fantastic and everyone was so friendly. We will definitely be returning to meet with Ivano, Pat and Julien next year! Thank you!

We cannot recommend this place enough. From the beautiful area of Gallicano and nearby Barga, to the immaculate villas at B&B Il Melograno to the friendly and welcoming proprietors, Paola, Carlo and the whole family - who couldn't do enough for us, this was a fantastic stay. Ideally located for trips into Lucca, Pisa and Florence as well as many of the quieter and less "touristy" areas in the region this was perfect. As I mention above, Carlo and his family were extremely welcoming and never hesitated to recommend places to go and things to see and we were treated to fresh fruit and veg from their very own self sufficient allotment and fruit plants. Such a perfect stay!

The bbq, pizza oven, & outside kitchen are a great facility& were well utilised. The view was food for the soul even on the 1 day that the thunder rolled in. Alesandra was very helpful on the couple of occasions we needed some assistance. Would definitely recommend Villa Cavani!!
