Holiday Rental House
This is a good opportunity to experience a summer holiday in one of the loveliest villages in Tuscany. Casa Corrado is set just above the medieval walled village of Castiglione. From the house and garden there is a great view of the ancient Castello and walled village, and the dramatic mountains beyond. In 2011 Castiglione was voted the nicest village in Italy. The walled village is strategically situated in the spectacularly scenic area known as the Garfagnana, arguably the most beautiful part of all Tuscany. Castiglione has a number of bars and shops, and 2 restaurants all within 300 metres of the villa. There are 5 bedrooms in the villa, which is perfect for groups of family and friends.
