Rustico Altane a beautifully restored farmhouse Italy

Farmhouse in Tuscany, Italy

Property Details of Tuscany Farmhouse

Rustico Altane is a centuries old farmhouse restored to a high quality and facing a panoramic view of the Apuan Alps. The traditional features such as ancient chestnut wood beams, large open fireplace and original terracotta tiles have been carefully preserved. Modern services are there in the well equipped kitchen and 3 bathrooms, 1 ensuite, and 1 with both tub and shower. The 'altane' is the original balcony, where the farmer dried beans and maize cobs, that runs the full length of the house. One of the bedrooms and the upstairs landing opens directly onto the balcony. Outside there is plenty of space for eating out. Steps lead down from the front of the house to the good-size pool (11 x 4 metres) where there is also an area for lounging and sun-bathing. There are also terraces of fruit trees and vines and the view across to the mountains is superb. At the back of the house there is a purpose built private car park.

Local Area Details

The farmhouse is nicely elevated without being cut off along winding mountain roads. 1.5 kms away is the village of Pieve Fosciana where there are bars and shops. A restaurant Il Pozzo is also only 1.5 kms away.

The bustling market town of Castelnuovo Garfagnana is a short drive away. Here there is a large Thursday market and a choice of restaurants including a traditional 'Enoteca' where you can buy loose wine and eat a range of local cold meats.

The area contains interesting medieval villages such as Barga and Bagni di Lucca where there are summer programmes of activities such as exhbitions and classical music and jazz festivals. Local museums are also fascinating. Lucca is a drive away and even Florence is possible.

Walking and trekking throughout the area, ranging from a stroll to an all day hike, is excellent.
