One-Off Feature

Set in a chestnut grove along an ancient mountain road, Casa Paladini is a very special retreat for artists, honeymooners, nature lovers and anyone looking to get away from the noise and stress of the modern world. 

General Info

Built in 1904, the house has been lovingly restored while retaining all of its charming original features. Beamed ceilings, chestnut furniture, open fireplaces and stone walls abound, but you will also find all the facilities you need to remain cosy, comfortable and well-fed, not least an old-school pizza/bread oven. The real beauty of Casa Paladini lies in its tranquil and secluded setting – the necessary amenities are not far away but the only sounds you’ll hear at night are a nearby running stream and the hum of deer, crickets and wild boar going about their business. It’s blissful.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The cottage sits on an old road that connects the medieval walled town of Castiglione di Garfagnana with the high mountains villages and pastures above. The town, where you will find shops and restaurants, is a 30-minute walk down the mountain and through the forest, the village of Chiozza with its pizzeria is just 1.5km away, and several wonderful walking routes start directly from the cottage door. A 2km walk will take you to a medieval bridge and waterfall (great for swimming in the summer), and the alpine ski resort of Abetone is a 45-minute drive away. The cities of Lucca and Pisa are well worth a day trip.
