The bar owner will also often cook in request. This is a taste of real Italy, living in an authentic historical village which is set amongst the mountains, and surrounded by wonderful views. The village is around 3kms to the closest restaurant and after this point there is a good choice of restaurants and bars. The closest larger village is Camporgiano a five minute drive away with a couple of restaurants and bars; inhabited castle; supermarket, pharmacy, small Monday morning market, and station for easy exploration of the entire area. The village of Piazza al Serchio is also only a 5 min drive away – across the river, and all facilities can be found here. The property is circa 20 mins from the market town of Castelnuovo; 35 mins from the medieaval town of Barga and just one hour 15 minutes, north of Lucca. Pisa is around 90 minutes or so away.... This is an ideal opportunity to stay in a mountain village house, with fantastic views, and experience the real Italy!
