The space

Our apartment"Castagno" is composed of one large double bedroom, a living area with sofa-bed, a fully equipped kitchen, a modern bathroom with shower, hairdryer, washing machine.
It is in a stone house in the heart of Gorfigliano, a village famous for its marble quarries and the beautiful Lake Paradiso, which is at less than 10 minutes drive. Details and furniture have been studied to ensure maximum comfort: ideal for a romantic break or for a family holiday, maybe with some friends in the adjoining cottage and house.
Free parking place at 2 minutes walking distance.

Guest access

The cottage has a private outside area to relax and eat. The swimming pool (brand new & heated) is shared with maximum 10 guests.

Interaction with guests

I live here, happy to give infos and cook great pizzas with you!

The neighbourhood

Gorfigliano is a small village but has all facilities: bank, shops, laundry, newsagent, church, restaurants and bar. It's famous for marble quarries and the ateliers of marble artists.

Getting around

Lucca, Pisa, the beautiful sunny beaches of Versilia coast, Le Cinque terre, natural parks, Adventure parks for children and adults... everthing is reachable with a one-day trip. The nearest railway station is PIazza al Serchio (5 km). Trains go to Lucca, Pisa, Aulla, Genoa, La Spezia, Carrara.

Other things to note

The house has been restored in 2013, so everything is new and modern, even if we maintained the spirit of the area, using local materials such as wood and marble to furnish them.
This apartment is ideal for a family of 3/4, but the 3 units, let together, can provide more families a perfect space to holiday together, but with some privacy between them.

We had the most wonderful time in Gorfigliano and Damiano is a perfect and serviceminded host. Unfortunately we did not have time to make our own pizzas by the help from Damiano. In the evening we visited the little bar just around the corner for Caffe Latte and enjoing the nice atmosphere. The apartment was nice, new and very clean. Everything worked as expected.

Hemos pasado 7 días en Gorfigliano y ha sido una fantástica experiencia. La zona es preciosa, rodeados de bosques de castaños y pueblecitos donde perderte y disfrutar de la arquitectura e historia local. A los pies de la cordillera Alpi Apuane, en el norte de la Toscana, a 700 metros del nivel del mar y a una hora de las Cinque Terre y de Lucca, ciudad amurallada que vale la pena visitar. En relación al alojamiento, un 10 en limpieza, equipación y ubicación, el apartamento es de nueva construcción, realizado respetando las construcciones de la zona y con materiales propios de lugar. Damiano ha sido un gran anfitrión y una gran ayuda con sus recomendaciones, además nos deleitó con unas de sus pizzas caseras.

L'accueil de Damiano est très chaleureux, nous avons un passé un super séjour. L'appartement est très propre et conforme à la description. Damiano nous a très bien aiguillé dans le choix de nos visites, et nous a fait découvrir les spécialités locales ! Mention spéciale pour la pizza aux couleurs de l'Italie ! Encore merci pour tout Damiano ;-)

Esperienza fantastica, Damiano è stato molto accogliente e discreto, l'appartamento è tranquillo, in paese ma isolato, il paesaggio intorno è delizioso. Nell'appartamento c'è tutto quello che serve, Damiano ci ha anche procurato un lettino per la nostra bimba di otto mesi! Il paese di Gorfigliano è molto bello, le persone sono tutte gentili e ospitali e in pochi minuti di macchina si può esplorare la Garfagnana, che è strepitosa!
