This beautiful little stone and chestnut cottage is stunningly located in the heart of the Garfagnana with the most wonderful views of open countryside and mountains. The cottage is situated in a very private position, providing romantic accommodation for a couple or small family.

The little house was constructed a few years ago in the traditional way, using local natural materials. Internally, the house, has beamed ceilings throughout, and has the benefit of an open fireplace.

The house is located near the historic village of Castiglione, in a raised area 1.5 kms from the village with views of the Garfagnana and the surrounding mountains including the famous “Uomo Morto”

Approached up a narrow country lane, the house has a private gated entrance, about 150,00 square meters of garden with BBQ and outdoor oven, private pool dimensions 6.50 x 3.50 m wide with surrounding paving.

Inside the cottage there is a kitchen, bathroom, utility room on the ground floor and double bedroom and bedroom with bunk bed on the first floor. There are also large porches on both sides of the house. The garden is very well cared for, the pool is new with lovely terracotta tiles. There are fantastic views of the famous mountains. It is only 2km to the centre of Castiglione, a famous medieval village, which has 3 restaurants and bars.

Casa Metato has a delightful atmosphere of peace and quality. This jewel of a retreat is an ideal spot for couples and small families looking for a totally peaceful holiday with amazing views, yet within easy reach of local tourist activities, restaurants, markets and shops.

Heavenly Villa!

By LaWanda W on 19-Sep-2020

Words cannot describe the beauty of this villa and it''s surroundings. The view from the north room was spectacular with french doors that opened to reveal an immaculate swimming pool, the mountains in the distance, and the local residents hanging out their laundry and singing to the radio each morning. The villa has the best of modern plumbing and kitchen fixtures (unlike many old buildings in Europe), with the best of the rustic which gives you the feel of living like a prince or princess centuries ago. The pictures on the site do not do it justice. There are a few things to consider if traveling with couples. The first floor of the villa is what you are renting which consists of two bedrooms with bathrooms, two sitting or living rooms and a kitchen. All rooms are connected by a door but you will need to go outside to go from the north bedroom to the kitchen or sitting rooms without disturbing anyone in the middle bedroom. This was not a problem for us but something to consider depending on your travel companions. This villa is situated far north of other Tuscan sights. We took two days and traveled to Venice and a day in Cortona and a day in Florence. If we had it to do over again we would have spent 4 nights at the Villa in order to travel to Cinque Terre and Lucca and then possibly a villa in Florence to take in the sights there and Cortona-Siena. I will say that the most enjoyable day that we spent was the day devoted to Coreglia Antelminelli. The restaurant L''Arcile was wonderful as were both of the bars. When you see bar in Italy, think Starbucks with alcohol.

In een woord Fantastisch!

Geweldige plek, heel behulpzame en aardige eigenaren, mooi rustig, supermooie tuin met zwembad en fantastisch uitzicht! In een klein oud stadje waar bijna geen toeristen zijn, prachtige oude villa! Ook de omgeving is prachtig! Het ligt wat hoger dus het koelt ''s nachts lekker af. Aanrader, wij komen terug!

The best stay you can imagine

By Esther en Henk Jansen on 07-Jun-2022

What an amazing house an garden is villa la Penna. We stayed here two weeks and we enjoyed it every minute. The apartment has a lot of space and the garden, pool and landscape are the best you can imagine. There is one small problem, the house is in an mediaval town and a normal car cannot reach the house. The owners of the house are so friendly and they help you with their small town car to bring over you r luggage and are always willing to help you out withe any problem.. We recommend this house with the best rating possible. We had a small dog with us and he could walk around te garden as he liked. We will surely return one day to enjoy this peaceful house again
