This is the 'real' Italy, and due to fact this area is not touristy it is very cheap for eating out, and trying local cuisine.
Pisa Airport is 90 min.; Florence 2 hr.; Genoa 2.5hr.
All this peace and yet only a short drive from villages, and one can even walk down to the river. There is a train station in the village, for easy exploring and in Camporgiano 4.5km away you will find basic shops/supermarket/bars/restaurants and a privately owned castle.
The property is located a 10 minute drive from the market town of Castelnuovo and 25 mins from the mediaeval town of Barga both with their various bars and restaurants. Pisa 90 mins; Lucca 1 hr Florence 1 hour 50 mins; mediaeval villages everywhere; National Parks 20 mins.
Closer to home there are plenty of little historic villages to visit, many of which have local festas in the summer. There are also the lakes of Gramalazzo, Vagli (with its hidden village submerged by the water) and Pontecosi, and some guests love to swim in the river. The house is also ideally located for visiting the local Fortress at Verrucole which is a good afternoon out, with stunning views and some interactive activities for the children. Also close by is the Buffardello tree climbing and zip wire park (ideal for both adults and children of all ages with a variety of runs) where one can take a picnic and spend the entire day in the welcome shade of the forest.
The real beauty of this area is the dramatic mountain scenery, and the hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, endless picnicking opportunities, and the pure peace of a non touristy holiday ......
There are plenty of dining options and your kitchen is well equipped for evenings dining al fresco at home.
