Make a holiday rental home or villa in Minucciano, Italy your home away from home

Once the subject of many quarrels over ownership, Minucciano is now a peaceful destination that can be used as an excellent base for exploring Garfagnana and the surrounding parts of Tuscany, Italy. Although it is not one of the busiest villages in the region in terms of tourists, Minucciano does have something to offer, with an array of historical attractions, good amenities and a number of local festivals held throughout the year.

Things to do in Minucciano, Italy

Minucciano has a population of just over 2,000, with the majority employed in fruit and vegetable production or the service industry. As you may imagine then, eating and drinking are popular pastimes in the village, with cafés and restaurants to be found both in the centre and on its outskirts, and the offerings generally of a high standard.

Minucciano has three main sites of historical interest within its boundaries, namely the Pieve di San Lorenzo, the Sancturio della Madonna del Soccorso and the Palazzo Baldini: a parish, a sanctuary and a palace respectively. Of the three, the parish is perhaps the most interesting, with its octagonal bell tower and picturesque position on the banks of the Tassonara stream.

An interesting time of the year in which to visit Minucciano is the Christmas holidays. This is when the annual 'Palio dei Natalecci' competition takes place, which requires Minucciano and neighbouring villages to compete to construct the finest tower out of only branches and shrubs. At the end of the festival the tower is then burnt. More festivals and events take place throughout the year, and are a great time to meet the locals and brush up on your Italian.

Places to visit on holiday in Minucciano, Italy

Minucciano borders seven other municipalities, so exploring the area during your stay is an easy task. Camporgiano (18km) is one of these municipalities, and something of a favourite with tourists due to its excellent weekly market and fantastic fortress – which dates back to 1300. Also bordering Minucciano is Piazza al Serchio (12km), a lesser-frequented destination that will allow you to escape the beaten tourist trail.

The weather in Minucciano is at its best between June and August, when the daily average temperature is 27C, and above 30C is common. Outside of this period a holiday in Minucciano can still be enjoyed, but you may need to take a raincoat if visiting between October and February.

Fabulous property

5 of 5
Beautiful house in a quiet scenic setting. Real get away from it all. Finished to a high standard.The owner was very welcoming and on hand if anything was ever needed. Even provided vegetables and olive oil from his own garden. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend it. Good facilities and lovely restaurant near by.

Idyllic, peaceful and relaxing

5 of 5
We stayed here for our first family holiday, 6 adults and a baby, house is great size, well equipped and stayed cool indoors even in the heat! We loved the pizza oven, BBQ and terrace area and spent a lot of time in this area for meals. Location is very remote, there is nothing local to walk to so if you like complete isolation it’s great, if you want to walk to a bar or for an ice cream, it’s not for you! We discovered fire flies in the woodland area one evening that was magical, a bug light show every evening from 10 -11.30pm! Pool area is lovely but the water was freezing! Renzo was on hand everyday if you needed him, but equally left us alone as he watered the gardens/maintained the pool early each morning. Views from the property were stunning, we ventured further north to a lake which was beautiful and by train into Lucca, again beautiful city. Handy hint: get some clear directions before you travel, we spent almost an hour trying to find a villa that the locals said didn’t exist, fortunately one of our party spoke Italian and we found it down a dirt track!!!
