This bright & modern 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment in the heart of the Garfagnana is an ideal home base for anyone who wants to experience Tuscany as an insider. You'll fall in love with the sunny interiors, high vaulted ceilings, charming balcony and great views of green mountains and terra cotta rooftops!
Just a 10 minute walk to the train station and you'll have all of Tuscany right at your finger tips. Choose from numerous restaurants, bars, cafes, and a supermarket, all within a 2 - 10 min stroll.
Full of color and light, this space is inviting and uplifting!
The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open plan so you can keep the conversations going whether you're rolling gnocchi, finishing the last forkful of pasta alla carbonara or reclining on the sofa. There is more than enough seating for six in both the living and dining areas. The kitchen is complete with a refrigerator/freezer, 4 burner stove top, and toaster oven.
Up to 6 guests sleep comfortably in two bedrooms and a sofa bed. The master bedroom has a European queen size bed, a decorative fireplace and lots of storage space to unpack those suitcases and really make yourself at home. The second bedroom is furnished with two twin beds, a sofa, a large wardrobe and a gorgeous view. The fold out couch in the living area offers extra sleeping space for two additional guests so no one has to be left behind!
The full bathroom with shower is small, but it does the job!
And the sweet balcony-for-two, just off the living area, will become your favorite spot for savoring your morning espresso and fresh brioche.
There are some wonderful choices of restaurants and cafes at just a 5 - 10 minute walk from the apartment. And the lively Gallicano-Barga area offers a great selection of activities and dining choices. Tickle your tastebuds at Scacciaguai where you'll have a TV view of the kitchen as your authentic Tuscan meal is prepared! Gear up and try rock climbing at nearby Parco Levigliese. Or brave the entirely vertical shafts of the Grotta del Vento, a well-known cave in the mountains surrounding Gallicano.
You'll find traveling by car is your best bet when visiting the local nooks and crannies of the ruggedly beautiful Garfagnana. But you don't have to be bogged down with confusing driving directions, impossible city transit rules and heart-pounding Italian motorways when heading out to Florence, Viareggio or Pisa for the day. Instead, hop on a train at the Barga-Gallicano station, just a 10 minute walk from the apartment, and you'll be on your way!
