One-Off Feature

A secluded getaway in the beautiful Garfagnana region of north-west Tuscany, above the picturesque hilltop town of Barga, Montate enjoys breathtaking views of the Apuan Alps from every window.

General Info

Montate is a traditional Tuscan farmhouse with chestnut beams and terracotta tiles throughout. All the rooms have been tastefully decorated to create a home-from-home atmosphere, made more so by the films and CDs for guests' use. This villa in Tuscany consists of the main house, a small chestnut roasting house in front (currently being converted into additional living space) and the sundeck beyond the chestnut house which overlooks the pool below. There is also plenty of additional garden space around the house. There is a 400m private drive leading to the house and we have no immediate neighbours, making it an entirely private, secluded location.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Set in acres of chestnut woods, this secluded villa in Tuscany is the ultimate getaway. At 800 metres above sea level, the mountain views are astounding. Apart from being the ideal place to escape it all, the property is ideally located for the many wonderful attractions that Tuscany has to offer. Pisa and Florence are both within easy reach. The beach at Viareggio is an hour or so away - or for the more adventurous, skiing at Abetone is 90 minutes by car. In the heat of the summer there is always a gentle breeze and at night you can sleep with the windows open because there are no mosquitoes. Nearby Barga, with its shops and restaurants, is a must as well as the wonderful walled city of Lucca, where you can hire a bike and ride around the walls.
