It is difficult to describe just how wondrous this location is – situated in the heart of a very sleepy and peaceful tiny village, yet with absolute privacy, total peace, unbeatable views and 15 hectares of private land including olive groves, chestnut woods and open fields!

The enormous and spacious villa which used to be a monastery, is spread over 3 floors, and was originally constructed in the 1400's . The house has been newly refurbished with loving care to provide a high quality holiday with an extra special ambience..There is accommodation here for 14 plus 12, with 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 5 kitchen/living rooms.

About the neighbourhood
Costola is situated on the sunny sideof the Garfagnana valley within the comune of Fosciandora, which is an area which has retained its olde worlde charm due to the fact there is only one road leading both into and out of the zone… The comune itself has 600 inhabitants spread between 6 villages and various hamlets. Villa Sara is very privately situated in the smallest of these ancient peaceful villages, and the one that arguably has the best views of all!Despite the very quiet and dramatic location, the Villa is only a 2 min drive to a local bar/shop, post office and pharmacy and a 10 minute drive from the local town of Castelnuovo which has all facilities – shops, bars, restaurants, train station, famous Thursday morning market . Barga the mediaeval cobble stoned town is a mere 15/20 minu... more
