Tuscany / Versilia / B & B - private villa and camping
Lifestyle or job - or both?
High in the mountains of Stazzema (approx. Half an hour down to the sea - by car of course) the last approx. 300m are over forest / gravel path. The property is partly on terraces (where you can set up tents or caravans) with lots of chestnuts - then the plateau with the house, bathroom for the tents, sunbathing area, then it goes down the slope to the street where the second house is.
You come out on the forest path - and get a wonderful view - lush forests and valleys far and wide - in the middle a corner of the sea view. At the beginning a country house with some goats, which does not belong to the property and is occasionally visited by the owner to look after the animals and mow the lawn.
A little further on is a gate to the agriturismo (makes honey and now produces hemp - the permitted plant). On the right a little lower a parking lot, the stone house - access from above -in 3 bedrooms - 2 x double rooms, 1 x with bunk beds.
Downstairs access -professional kitchen, dining room, living room with TV. Terrace with seating.
A little further a small stone house with 2 showers and 2 toilets for tents / caravans.
Plateau - large piece of land surrounded by hemp plants and lots of trees and flowers.
Then down the slope (which is too steep and overgrown) so by car back on the road to Retignano - here at the end of the property is a new house - approx. 160mq, below laboratory / work areas for agriturismo, above apartment - 2 large rooms.
Well, new water heater (gas in bombola)
Garfagnana is located in the north of Lucca in Tuscany. A green wooded landscape full of mountains and streams. The house has been renovated 2019 and is located a short distance from Pescaglia in a village without cars. Parking about 100m from the house.
Own garden, garage and car access, can be used also as a special B & B
From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces. Visitors to Tuscany come for many reasons. Many come in search of fine art, others to explore the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer vacationers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture. There is a lot to see and do in Tuscany, the difficulty is really where to start. Certainly most should start with Florence, then continue on to Siena and Pisa. The roll call of città di arte, cities of art, is daunting: Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and Lucca are all striking. The more you come to know the region, the more extraordinary Tuscany appears.
