Welcome to

Il Castagnello

Tuscan villa to rent



Il Castagnello is a five bedroomed secluded farmhouse, set in the tranquil and beautiful chestnut forests of the Alpi Apuane. The house has been fully renovated to provide accommodation for up to ten people.  Set on a private gravel drive two kilometres from the main road you will enjoy breathtaking views across the valley to the hillside battlements of Barga, your nearest town

Il Castagnello is approximately one hour from Pisa International Airport, 40 minutes from the medieval walled city of Lucca and less than 90 minutes from Florence. The villa is also ideally placed for day trips to the seaside - the Italian Riviera with Viarreggio and Forte di Marme make a fabulous family day out.

We believe that Il Castagnello and this beautiful region of Italy has everything to offer for a varied family holiday

– we hope you agree!

Really nice place tucked up in the hills among chestnut forests. It is very peaceful and secluded and has great views over the valley below. The house has been very nicely renovated and it is big, with plenty of space and nice outside seating arears. The amenities are great - proper coffee machine and good size pool with sun loungers, outside barbeque.
