An opportunity to experience a summer holiday in one of the loveliest villages in Tuscany, Villa Corrado is set just above the medieval walled village of Castiglione. There is a view of the ancient Castello from the house and garden. This is a great introduction to-Tuscany.

There are 5 bedrooms in the newly built villa, which is perfect for groups of family and friends.

The villa has also been equipped with a lift and designed with wheelchair users in mind. There is an English speaking house manager who lives locally and is available to provide assistance if required.

Downstairs, at the ground level with access through the internal garage, there is a large double bedroom with easy access to a bathroom with handrails, a low sink and a wheel-in shower with a seat and rails. There is also a twin room downstairs.

On the first floor there is a main door which leads into a roomy lounge with a 10 seat dining room table. For colder periods there is a cosy open wood fire. The lounge has French doors to the large balcony, which is a feature throughout the villa. The kitchen has easy access to the balcony through a French door.
Also on the first floor there is a lovely double room with a French door which leads to its own balcony with views over the pool and the beautiful countryside beyond. There is a further double room and a single room with access to the pool and sundeck.

The 12 metre private swimming pool has steps and a wheelchair lift.

The house is also equipped with a free wi-fi system

Castiglione has a number of cafes and shops, and 2 restaurants all within 300 metres of the villa.
In 2012 Castiglione was voted as one of the nicest villages in Italy. The walled village is strategically situated in the spectacularly scenic area known as the Garfagnana, arguably the most beautiful part of all Tuscany. The classic "art" city of Lucca is an easy drive, as is Pisa and Florence.

Garfagnana is 'Hidden Tuscany' at its best. With its' stunning scenery it is the best area in Tuscany for walking and outdoor activities. Friends of Tuscany are the oldest agency in the area, and we have close ties with an Outdoor Activities company who offer many international class adventures including electric mountain biking.
We can also help you to access Art classes with a well known artist, excursions to the Cinque Terre, Florence and Lucca, visits to vineyards, historical guided tours and Italian cooking lessons.

Friends of Tuscany can help you arrange a pre-arrival shopping service, and also a prepared Tuscan meal for your arrival.

Excellent facilities with a lovely view

By Michael Batton on 03-Aug-2019

The villa surpassed all our expectations and was excellent. The owner has clearly put a great deal of thought into all aspects of life in the property and it looks like no expense has been spared in his planning and design. It is also worth mentioning the lovely view from the pool and the balcony. The combination of the pool, the view and the facilities resulted in a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday & I would highly recommend this property.

Well equipped and welcoming villa

By Margaret on 19-Oct-2017

The property was well presented and very clean. There was a welcom pack on arrival which was a lovely touch and we used it during the stay. The kitchen was small (compared to the rest of the house)but adequate. Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worst so we were not able to make use of the super swimming pool, although we did manage a few hours sunbathing. We had an issue with the internet but a rep came round the next morning and sorted it. Instructions on how to get to the villa were good. We had stYed nearby previously and it was great to explore such a lovely area again.

Best Villa Ever

By Kenny B. on 16-Dec-2016

This was the best villa we have ever stayed in! The pool was brilliant, the garden had fantastic views with a sunset to die for. The house was really big and comfortable and accommodated our group of 9 easily. Every night we sat outside to eat or went to one of the 2 restaurants in the village which were really good value. I loved sitting around in the village having a beer or glass of chianti, and morning coffee was a pleasure. Everyone is really friendly. The area is really beautiful and I would recommend going on one of the outdoor activities which Friends of Tuscany can arrange for you. Some of us went on the canyoning excursion, which lasted all afternoon, where with provided helmet and wetsuit you jump into fabulous pools of fresh cool water. At the end the whole group sat down for a full Tuscan meal together. I can honestly say that it is one of the best things I have ever done, highly recommended. I hope we will return next year.
