Newly restored, stunning 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom property with private pool, situated deep in the Garfagnana, area famous for its walking, wildlife and fauna. This spacious stone barn has been restored to a very high standard, with all modern conveniences, such as a well equipped kitchen; beautiful shower rooms yet it retains some of the traditional features including chestnut beamed ceilings. The house whilst very traditional has large windows creating a sense of light and airiness not always found in older style properties and it also has the benefit of a large covered terrace on the first floor as well as a another open terrace both of which overlook the garden and pool. Location Situated on the hillside, only 2km from the local market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana with its bars, restaurants, shops and famous Thursday morning market. This property is also very convenient, situated less than a 5 minute drive from town with all facilities, and circa 500m from nearest restaurant.

We spent the last two weeks of our holiday in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana in this holiday home. For us, as a group of nine people, this house was perfect. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious, clean and attractively designed. Also for equipment for kitchen, technology, outdoor facilities there was nothing missing. The large pool was cleaned by the owners and after a week the whole house was cleaned, as well as bed linen and towels exchanged. We were absolutely delighted by the house and its location and can only recommend a stay. Also the landscape in this region of Tuscany is simply charming and worth a trip.

Just a short note to say it was lovely to meet the owners last week. We thought La Capanna del Pastore was in a lovely spot, extremely comfortable and far exceeded our expectations. It was also the best well-equipped accommodation we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in many across Europe!). We would definitely recommend the house to other people and the agents you use were also very helpful during the whole booking process.
Thank you once again.

The property is very nicely located, well equipped and spacy. The pool is large and well finished. We did not miss anything. The owners are very friendly and customer oriented far beyond usual without interfering with the privacy of the renters. The surrounding landscape is scenic with all the mountains and medieval towns and fortresses around. Fully recommended.
Great location, house and pool ★ ★ ★ ★

We had spent the previous week in a remote villa high in the mountains (interesting driving styles up there!) this property was an easy drive, and close (but not too close) to Garfagnana, which meant Luca and Barga were simple /safe drives, however being so close to Castlenuovo we took a couple of trips to the town, very impressed and worth visiting, especially in August when the sales are on.
The house is a really good layout (upside down), ground floor being an open plan format with lots of air and coolness. the kitchen is very well equipped and Loertta could not have been more helpful. downstairs there are 4 bedrooms each with it's own bathroom works well. the pool is bigger than most we have stayed in (this is our 9th different villa since 2010), we will be staying here again in the future.
A beautiful property in a lovely quiet location ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The property was exactly as described, very spacious, well furnished and equipped.
We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children, the layout was brilliant with easy access to the pool, a nice covered terrace to the front on which we enjoyed a few evenings watching the deer passing through the extensive grounds of the house. The location is a kilometre or so from Castelnuovo di Garafagnana, with easy driving access to the many small villages / castles / country parks / local supermarkets / restaurants and other attractions in this quiet corner of Tuscany. About 45 minutes drive to Lucca. The pool was large and well maintained. The owners (Lorretta & Benito) very welcoming and helpful.
Beautiful location with added wildlife ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We were a group of six ranging in age from 2 to 70 and found the property met all of our needs. The views are amazing and we found that we had daily visits from some of the nearby wild deer. Loretta and Benito had thought of everything and we found everything we required in the property. The swimming pool was essential particularly in the afternoons when we returned from trips to Lucca and Pisa.
We would definitely recommend this property for a relaxing enjoyable Tuscan break.

A recently renovated barn conversion set in a beautiful rural location just a short distance from the town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. Plenty of space for the whole family with a huge living area with smart TV and wifi (to our childrens' delight), four en-suite bedrooms and a sizeable loggia for alfresco dining – all topped off with a fantastic pool, set in a carefully maintained garden. Situated in an area of wooded countryside, the house is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area and beyond – we fitted in trips to Lucca, Pisa and even Florence, in between some serious relaxing. The owner was on hand to settle us in and offer suggestions for trips in the area and recommendations for restaurants. All in, I'd be happy to recommend Capanna del Pastore – a friendly welcome, superb accommodation, a wonderful stay in a beautiful part of the country and perfect weather. Spot on!
