a Tuscan cottage with pool
Originally a farm cottage, Castello has been restored to provide a comfortable home whilst retaining a traditional simple charm.
Surrounded by its own vineyard, the house is in the heart of the Garfagnana, a peaceful area of hills, lakes and old mountain villages in Northern Tuscany.
Castello sleeps a maximum of seven people. There are two double bedrooms, one of which has room for a third person in a Z bed, and there is a sofabed in the studio downstairs.
The private pool has a paved sun terrace with covered area, surrounded by lawns at the edge of the vineyard
The pool is 5m x 10m and 1.4m deep and gets the sun all day.
There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas and a covered pergola for those who prefer the shade!
Nestling in the hills with amazing mountain views, Castello is only a few minutes drive or 15 minute walk to the village
Filicaia is a small village with bank, post office and grocery store. There are two bars, one of which serves local food in the restaurant and pizzeria with wood oven
It's a 10 minute drive to Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (see right), a small medieval town with thriving weekly market, summer festivals and open air concerts
One hour's spectacular drive over the marble mountains to the elegant seaside resorts of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio with designer shops and fish restaurants
One hour from Lucca - a delightful walled city full of historic buildings, cobbled streets and piazzas and interesting shops.
Two hours by train to Florence.
