Fabulously restored farmhouse villa with swimming pool and stunning views

This lovely country villa is in the beautiful Garfagnana region of Northern Tuscany, set in a valley between the Appenine and Apuane Mountains.

Casa Norma sleeps 6 people comfortably. Set over 3 floors the property hosts one master bedroom with kingsize bed, and two twin rooms. There are two bathrooms within the house – one of which includes a roll top bath were you can relax in luxury whilst admiring the spectacular Panio de Corfino Mountain. The second bathroom hosts a modern shower room on the top floor, also offering a view you’d never tire of looking at!

There are a variety of outdoor spaces to enjoy around the property. A magnificent view awaits from the terrace accessible directly from the kitchen, then meander down the stone steps to take a dip in your own private swimming pool. In the evening, have a quiet moment sitting under cover in the barn area as you wait for the pizza oven to heat up.

The electric fanned wood burning stove in the living area allows for cozy nights in, and of course the entire house comes with Central heating to allow for year round usage of this wonderful property.

Our nearest airport is Pisa Galileo, which has daily flights in from London, and many regular flights from most regional UK airports. From the airport, the house is approximately 1hr 15mins by car. Many car hire options are available at Pisa airport. Full directions will be provided upon booking.

Alternatively there is a regular train timetable from Pisa Centrale station to Castelnuovo Di Garfagnana, a relaxing way to view the beautiful scenery on route. From there you can use local taxis (we can give you the telephone number of an English speaking driver) to reach the house.

There is a local mini-market within a 10 minute walk that supplies all your essentials. A lager fully stocked supermarket can be found in Pieve (approx 20mins from the house). It’s 20 minutes to walk to the village restaurant and pizzeria, and there are numerous restaurants with easy driving distance of the house offering superb italian fare at extremely reasonable prices. e.g. Average 2/3 course lunch costs 10-15 euro including wine!

The historic village of Castiglione is a six minute drive by car or taxi and has a couple of bars with spectacular views and is the heart of local life in the area.

Additional house amenities include free wifi throughout, bed linen, a children’s cot, washing machine and towels. Additional house cleaning is not included during your stay but can be arranged at local currency. One bag of logs provided out of season and additional logs can be provided upon request.

There is a fine tennis court open to the public only 10 minutes walk, at the sports cafe/bar. The local lake and picnic area is a 5 minute walk and fishing is available.

The area around the village of Villa Collemandina is without doubt one of the most beautiful parts of all Tuscany

At Friends of Tuscany we give lots of local info and recommendations

We can help arrange mountain biking, hill walking, horse riding, gorge walking, art classes and cooking classes which are all available locally.

Just perfect!


By Nick on 18-Sep-2019

My newly pregnant partner and I had the great pleasure of staying at Casa Norma from 10/09/18 through 15/09/18....we only wish it could have been longer. The accommodation itself was spacious, well kept and beautifully furnished - we weren't left wanting for anything. As it was our 'baby-moon' it was just the 2(3) of us but it could quite easily have accommodate another 45. The pizza oven was such good fun and easy to use, we used it four out of five evenings. The grounds, and of course the pool, were superb. The pool had an 'infinity pool' feel to it as once you were in all you could see were surrounding mountains and the pictures really don't do it justice. Tracey and John were exceptional hosts. We had expressed an interest in a cooking course prior to our trip and everything was taken care of before we had even arrived. The night itself was great fun....I'm writing this now back in Manchester whilst waiting for my pasta dough to be fully rested. The scenery and surroundings are splendid, the local bars and restaurants were great and the house itself is breathtaking. I can't recommend it highly enough and we'll certainly be back. Nick & Annie (& bump) P.S. go to Il Pozzo and have the truffle pasta.

Best view from a bath ever!


By Marjory K on 19-May-2019

This lovely property has been lovingly restored and combines Italian charm with a clean and classy contemporary feel. Each bedroom is light and airy with top quality beds and bedding. But it is the view from the stunning bathroom that we will never forget. The freestanding bath looks out of the window onto the mountains! The property is spotlessly clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. You could quite happily spend your entire holiday at the villa and its beautiful pool. But we enjoyed trips to Florence and Lucca by train as well as lots of walking in the Garfagnana National Park.

Paradise


By Fiona Curtis on 04-Jun-2018

I spent time with Tracey and John in this incredible part of Tuscany back in 2014. At that point, they were looking at the house and bought in on their return home. Since then they've put love, thought and care into turning the Farmhouse into the charming home it is today. I can personally vouch for the stunning views, breathtaking location and AMAZING restaurants nearby that make you so welcome and spoil you with authentic food and wine. Visiting here is a MUST and Tracey and John will help you every step of the way to plan your trip. Do it!

Everyone will fall in love with this place


By Julie on 09-May-2018

Tracey and John have put in a lot of love, time and effort on restoring this beautiful holiday home in this stunning northwestern region of Tuscany. The house has been created in true Italian rustic country style – the transformation in the last year has been amazing - it looks absolutely fantastic. Their attention to detail has been meticulous – to ensure that everyone will have everything you could possibly need to enjoy a fantastic relaxing holiday. The scenery is truly beautiful and I can understand why they chose this wonderful location, that has a very local friendly feel to it. A fabulous location to enjoy a relaxing well earned holiday and enjoy a few fantastic meals and local vino! We look forward to trying it out for ourselves!  Jools & Dougie
