Fienile is a stylish house created in Collettino - a traditional working farm. You can get to know the animals on the farm and relax round the pool with a fantastic view of the Apuane Mountains.
The fascinating medieval village of Silico is a few metres walk, and there are mapped walks all around the village. The village itself has cultural attractions and events throughout the year.
A unique holiday can be enjoyed at Collettina. The house and pool have been created with quiet relaxation in mind, but gentle and interesting activities can be witnessed on the farm. The farm still works in the traditional way, with sheep, goats, and horses living on the quiet green pastures nearby. It is a fantastic environment for children,who can also explore the traffic free streets of the old village.
The house has been restored from an old barn. The structure is rustic, and in contrast the furniture is stylish, modern and functional. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, oven and fridge/freezer. A washing machine is also available.
Outside there is a spacious terrace with table and loungers and a panoramic view of the dramatic Apuane Mountains.
There is a wood oven and a BBQ in the garden.
The large shared 12x6 metre pool has a wonderful view over the mountains, with incredible sunsets over this unique place.

There is an excellent family run restaurant in Silico, only a one minute walk from the farm. The village itself is interesting; tiny but with fine buildings and wonderful views. A well known medieval festival is held there during August.
The area of Garfagnana is best known for its wonderful scenery, old fashioned ways, rustic food and outdoor activities.
