Pool
This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.
La Stalla , formerly the old stable dating from 1743, is a two storey cottage. It has a pretty sitting room with a wood burning stove and a kitchen downstairs, and one double bedroom and a bathroom with shower upstairs.

The space
Borgo della Madonnina is a privately owned hamlet of four historic cottages situated in a beautiful wooded valley in the hills above Lucca, at the start of the Garfagnana National Park.

Borgo della Madonnina is set in over seven acres of pine and chestnut forest, with abundant olive and fruit trees and beautiful views over the valley.

The small touches make a stay at Borgo della Madonnina special. The houses date from the mid 1700s and have many original features, including exposed stone walls and original ceilings with chestnut beams and cotto tiles.

The overall feel is light and airy, with simple but thoughtful décor, pleasant furniture, pretty bedding and plenty of fresh towels. You’ll also find fresh flowers and a small selection of books.

Each house has a new colour television and DVD / CD player – which we can remove if you prefer. A welcome pack will allow you to prepare a simple meal from local ingredients and enjoy a glass of wine on arrival.

Guest access
The small shared swimming pool and its sun terrace seem to hover over the trees - ideal for lounging in the Tuscan sunshine. There are three houses to rent, La Roccia, Il Forno and La Stalla. They are clustered as a hamlet, but each has privacy and dedicated outdoor terraces.

Nearby there are two very warm and welcoming, family owned restaurants, ‘Molin della Volpe’, a pleasant ten minute walk away, and ‘La Fonte’ in Trebbio, a ten minute drive away.

Other things to note
The cottages are kept immaculately clean by the owners. However, we are in the countryside and, therefore, there are insects about and may appear from time to time. It is part and parcel of living in the countryside.

Location

Pescaglia , Lucca, Tuscany, Italy

Bordered by the forested Appenines to the east and the Apuan Alps to the west, the Garfagnana area is one of alpine meadows, lush hills, rivers and gorges, making it ideal for walkers and hikers.

The Medieval and Renaissance glories of the walled city of Lucca are only 18 kilometres away, while Pisa and Florence are close enough for day trips. The glamorous beach resorts of Viareggio, Marina di Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi are only a short, but stunning drive across the Apuan Alps.

Nearby, Barga and Torre del Lago have wonderful music and opera festivals throughout the summer. Of course, if you want to unwind, you can simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside.

During your stay
Christopher and Adrian have owned Borgo della Madonnina since 2003. They live in Casa della Madonnina and so the properties and the grounds benefit from constant care and attention. They will also be around to give you any advice regarding local activities and amenities. However, they are both aware that guests have rented the property for a relaxing holiday and so will keep a low profile to ensure your privacy and enjoyment!
