Farmhouse
The farmhouse is situated in the mountain resort village of Corfino, with spectacular views from the house and large pool. A small, separate house a few yards away can also be rented, increasing the capacity to 9 people. The accommodation and pool have been created with quiet relaxation in mind, but gentle and interesting activities can be witnessed on the farm. The farm still works in the traditional way, with sheep, goats, and horses living on the quiet green pastures and terraces nearby. The house has a large living room / dining kitchen with an open fireplace, two bathrooms, and 2 double bedrooms, one of which has an extra single bed. There is also a single bedroom, which can have an additional single bed added. Outside there is a spacious terrace with table and loungers.

There is also a single bedroom, which can have an additional single bed added. Outside there is a spacious terrace with table and loungers. There is a wood oven and a BBQ in the garden. The large 12x6 metre pool has a wonderful view over the Apuane mountains, with incredible sunsets over this unique place. There is also a small one bedroomed house on the farm which can also be rented exclusively with the main house, increasing the capacity to 9, ensuring that the pool and facilities remain private. In addition, the owner, Natalina, a sheperdess who lives in another house on the farm, is sometimes able to supply guests with a whole range of totally organic food produced on the farm. This can be negotiated privately. The farm is located on terraces just below the main piazza of the medieval village of Corfino. There is little through traffic in the village, as the streets and alleyways are too narrow for cars. This makes it safe and fascinating for children to explore. There are 3 restaurants and two cafe bars in Corfino, and several more within a short drive. Corfino is actually in the famous Oricchiela Natural Park, the main area of which is 10 minutes drive. The spectacular Pania di Corfino mountain is just above the village, the only alpine mountain in the whole Appenine range, and home to unique varieties of flora and fauna. Down below Corfino the locality around the commune village of Villa Collemandina has some of the prettiest scenery in all of Tuscany, with some highly attractive villages nearby, such as Castiglione and Silico. A few kms further downhill the little market town of Castelnuovo has some fine shops, markets and all services including a railway station with trains to Lucca and the Cinque Terre. Friends of Tuscany can help arrange excursions to vineyards, mountain biking, hill walking, horse riding, gorge walking, art classes and cooking classes which are all available locally.
