The Ultimate Tuscan Barn Experience

Located in: Caprignana »
Since 1999 the first word of every person that has entered the barn is 'WOW'.

And it is a wow - this amazing and wonderful barn conversion in the largest old stone villa in a small village nestled in the charming hills of Northern Tuscany. The area, called the Garfagnana, is known as The Natural Park of Tuscany for its green hills and its wonderful 10,000 hectare national park situated just above the villa and ideal for walking. The altitude of around 800 meters makes it a perfect place to avoid overcrowded and unpleasantly hot holiday resorts in summer.

In 2014 a magnificent 12 meter x 4 meter swimming pool was added to make this an even more desirable destination. Sun lounges are around the pool for your enjoyment and relaxation. Illuminated until late night, it is perfect for swimming laps or just frolicking.

The area is not a major tourist destination so you will have a 5 STAR local experience visiting local markets, a tiny cheese factory in the next village, regular village festivities right around the valley and of course you will be paying local prices, not inflated prices for the foreign tourist market.

The property was purchased 28 years ago by its Australian owner who restored it meticulously and furnished it with purpose bought furniture and fittings. A decade later the old rustic barn, under the same roof line as they were built in this part of Tuscany, was restored. It is now a modern take on the New York Loft type of apartment, with a huge ground floor living space, and a partial mezzanine upstairs for sleeping accommodation. This is not just a holiday home. It is the owner's home and contains anything and everything you could possibly want for a short or longer stay. Staying there is a first class experience and has been enjoyed by guests up to 7 times who have traveled from Australia year after year to have their own Italian Experience.

The view is worth a thousand words. A guest wrote in the visitor's book 'if this isn't heaven you can see it from here'. And it's true....a 10th Century fort on the next hill, illuminated at night, just for you, as you sit on the terrace with a glass of the local vino or dine on the outdoor table set for the occasion.

As people walk in for the first time the most common word is 'WOW!!' For this is an amazing restoration that even the builders did not envisage being so successful. The ground level is open plan apart from the bathroom. The kitchen bench is a vast 250 kilo piece of marble from the Carrara hills you can see from the villa and a modern Ilve stove. The dining room table opens out to seat 6 and there are two lovely comfortable sofas. There is a flat screen TV, stereo system, DVD player and internet. You will find it filled with CD's and DVDs, satellite TV, and a small library including many books on things Italian and food.

Upstairs reached by a wrought iron staircase is a king bed, two single beds, night tables and bedside lamps, hanging space, chests of drawers, a large wardrobe and a blanket box for blankets, duvets and pillows.

The beds are very comfortable with beautiful quality ironed cotton bed linen and wool blankets and duvets. There is an ample supply of towels and napery for your table.

The studio has a wonderful kitchen with crockery, cutlery, implements and facilities for your enjoyment and entertainment. You can also avail yourself of a local English speaking cook who will cook you up a storm with local produce and fabulous things from her garden, at very small cost.

The bathroom has a brand new walk in wet area shower with a large shower rose and abundant hot water. There is a toilet, bidet, vanity and washing machine, iron and ironing board. Outside there is a clothes line for your washing.

Outside there is a large terrace with brand new outdoor furniture - table and 4 chairs, sun lounges, umbrella and small wood burning BBQ. The terrace is a favourite for breakfast and those late afternoon drinks before the sun goes down.

Adjacent to the barn is a small orchard and vegetable garden with the largest and most abundant fig tree for your delight!

The barn is mostly rented by couples for a week or fortnight's break, has been rented for 6 months by an Australian barrister, sometimes by a group of young people or couples with one or two young children.

Because of its double height ceiling and impossibility to heat, Il Fienile is only available through the summer months from the end of April to the beginning of November.

Parking is just above the house. The village has one shop for your needs and there is a large town three kilometers down the hill.

The nearest air access is Pisa airport (about a 1.5 hour drive away), or the local railway station at Piazza al Serchio on the line from Lucca (from the southern end of the valley) to Aulla (at the northern end).

Guests receive an 80+ page booklet of everything they could possibly want to know about living in this magnificent part of Tuscany when they make their final payment. It gives information on local food markets, where we love to eat out, how to get to the important places to visit whilst you are at I Cinghiali and a whole lot more.

The barn is approximately 100 square meters: the property is round 725 square meters.

If you prefer a LARGER SPACE, PLEASE LOOK AT STUNNING VILLA IN GARAGNANA which is 350 square meters and accommodates up to 11 guests.
