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.

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.

Lovely house set in the Tuscan countryside

5 of 5
We had a wonderful week. Lynn and Bill have a very spacious and comfortable home and have done very well to provide for their guests. The guest book is full of helpful information and recommendations for exploring the surrounding area. The pool and outdoor spaces are fantastic and we enjoyed making our own pizzas in the oven or just relaxing around the fire in the evenings. We would highly recommend this property.

A house with an amazing view and very peacefull.

5 of 5
If you are looking for peace and quit in a beautifull environment, than this house is ideal. The owners are very helpful and daughter Sylvia knows English what is always helpful if your Italian doesn't go much further than "bon jorno" The distance to the nearest bigger towns (Lucca, Pisa) shouldn't be underestimated, but still feasible for a daytrip. The cycling is heavier then expected with quite challenging climbs. Tip: the bakery in Carregine (10 minutes drive) offers baguettes even better than in France and you should try the salty Manninna. We will return to this beautiful place.
