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.

The big wow factor is the pool, with stunning views across the mountains. The property is conveniently located for trips south to Lucca, Piza or Florence but do take the opportunity to visit Carduso just up the road or Barga which is a 20 minute drive away. The owners were very welcoming, accommodating and very swift in sorting out a very minor issue at the property.

Col di Maturaia has a slightly daunting drive down to the villa, but this results in seclusion, wonderful views, and the entertainment of wild boar in the orchard at night. The aspect of the pool meant we got sun until late in the day - often dragging ourselves indoors at 8pm. Locally the small town of Pieve has a great range of local stores with a baker, butcher, greengrocer, and gelato/coffee bar to name our more frequented ones. (Do try the regional "hand" shaped bread). There are really good supermarkets in the town too. We drove to Florence (2 hours) but enjoyed buying leather bags/satchels in Lucca (50 mins), where we found local workshops. Castiglione provided our favourite meal of the holiday, in an unassuming restaurant inside the walls we were served wonderful homemade food.We were lucky with the weather, but good wi fi and comfy sofas would have meant we were covered either way.
