Al Melo

Barn -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Camporgiano, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
Romantic, beautifully and sympathetically renovated barn, with private pool!!! Located in the heart of the Garfagnana, 1 hr 15 mins or so north of Lucca.

With beamed ceilings and exposed stonework, along with traditional style windows and flooring, this is a real Tuscan gem!

On the ground floor, there are two bedrooms, one double and one twin, each with double doors leading to terrace overlooking the countryside. There is also a shower room.
On the first floor, but still on ground level due to sloped nature of terrain, there is a further shower room, a living room with sofa bed, fireplace, DVD, CD, TV. Option to hire SKY (with movies, sports and children's) at E25 per week. Please advise when booking.
Well equipped kitchen/diner with washing machine, dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer. WIFI.
There are insect screen...

Beautiful location in the Tuscan hills. Perfect for a small family. Wonderful large pool that was slightly chilly in the beginning of June. Stock up with food from the local markets and enjoy relaxing with the breathe taking views.

Date of stay: June 2018

We arrived late at night in the rain in a very remote location in northern Tuscany and to be fair we were a little apprehensive about what sort of holiday we would have. However, we were met by Fabio the owner, in the village centre...More

About the neighbourhood
This cottage is set in a very private and incredibly peaceful setting, just outside of the village of Puglianella which is a small, well kept village situated around 1 h5 15 mins of Lucca in the heart of the Garfagnana hills.

There is a village 2km either side of the house each of which has a good restaurant. Other villages with fuller facilities are around a 10 minute drive away, one of which has a private castle and a train station too.

Less than a 20 minute drive away is the local historic market town of Castelnuovo, with its various bars & restaurants, supermarkets and well-known Thursday morning market.

For days when one wishes to explore further afield, the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca is just over an hour away.

Only a 40 minute drive is the popular mediaeval t...
