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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The place is excellent; large and very well set out; you will need a car to get here. The kitchen is amazing, very well equipped we cooked in it every night. The island is perfect for working on your pizza dough and pizza boards great for carrying the pizza to the oven. The dresser contains a book on Italian food, we used this for cooking some excellent local dishes. The place is set up for you sitting outside and my wife and myself enjoyed most evenings in the hot tub watching the stars while waiting for the pizza ovan to finish; top tip is wait until the embers are burnt through, no flames will stop your pizza burning. The table outside the back door is perfect for the morning sun and breakfast. The covered pool, was a little chilli in May but would be perfect in the summer. There are two BBQs and a pizza oven. There is a working SMEG fridge and running water so everything you need for outdoor cooking. The hot tube is kept at 37/38 degrees is was amazing and quickly back up to temp by putting the cover on. There is a well equipped pool house with sun beds and chairs. We didn't spend much time around the pool as we went out each day but if you wanted a holiday next to the pool this is perfect. Back inside and the house is on three levels, downstairs basement has the lounge area with a bathroom and sofa bed, we didn't use this at all but would be a very cool place in the summer or cosy place in the winter. Upstairs are three great bedroom with genuine comfortable beds. The master bedroom is worth going out the doors and round the side of the house to watch the sun set and rise, a truely wonderful site over the Tuscan hills. The two other bedrooms are a great size and all come with AC which we found excellent for getting warmer or cooler very quickly. Recommend: Visit lucca - an excellent city about an hours drive away and a great place to sit and watch people or visit historical Italy without the crowds. The chica terra is close and worth a visit. Make sure you get the 10:30 boat otherwise you won't have enough time to stop and visit all five ports. Lynn and Bill are wonderful hosts and if you need anything before or during your stay just ask them. The wine they supply is very drinkable, white and red would recommend getting a few extra bottles of each from them. Downside: Only one, a long way from Florence; over two hours drive.
