New for 2018, Chiara is a spacious detached 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom property with large wraparound garden, private pool and mountain views. WIFI. Being built out of traditional stone and boasting beamed ceilings, tuscan flooring, chestnut windows with internal wooden shutters, and a classic tuscan kitchen, there is a real feel of Tuscan Charm at this peaceful property which is set on the top of a hill, with commanding views of the stunning countryside. Despite the traditional ambience there is a well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms and even insect screens. The owner has renovated this beautiful property with lots of love and care, and is happy to share it with guests as due to work commitments she now uses it herself less often.

Despite the traditional ambience there is a well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms and even insect screens. The owner has renovated this beautiful property with lots of love and care, and is happy to share it with guests as due to work commitments she now uses it herself less often. As well as the main house there is a little barn with a second living room, perfect for relaxing away from the rest of your group if you need your own space... The property is set over two floors and is arranged as follows: Enter via traditional door into the hallway with original stone staircase. Right into spacious living room with beamed ceilings, cotto flooring, large original fireplace and comfy seating along with a dining table that extends to seat 8 guests. TV is Italian only but there is a DVD player if you wish to bring films. The light room also has a door leading to garden. From here one reaches the traditional Tuscan country kitchen/diner complete with large oven, 5 ring hob, dishwasher, double sink, microwave, and breakfasting table - all you need to try your hand at Italian cooking. Also on this floor is a twin bedroom and a modern shower room with shower cubicle, basin, WC and bidet. There is also a utility area with washing machine. Upstairs there is : Twin room - suitable for children due to style of decor Double room, with double aspect views over countryside and mountains Double room, with double aspect views over countryside and mountains Family bathroom, with hydromassage bath, separate shower cubicle , large basin, WC and bidet. Outside: Large wrap around garden with traditionally paved patio area for al fresco dining. Wooded area with trees for relaxing in the natural shade Small converted barn with further living area for a peaceful relaxation Private pool with views over mountains Plenty of flat grounds for children to play (unusual with a mountain property!). The area: Nicciano is situated in the heart of the Garfagnana, surrounded by lush green countryside and stunning mountain scenery is what real rural Italy is all about. The mediaeval village is a 5 minute or so walk way and there is a bar/basic shop for essentials. Just above the village is a little hamlet (10 minutes or so walk cross country) which has a fantastic little family run restaurant where you can dine al fresco on exquisitely cooked home made and home grown food. This restaurant is open from Thursday to Sunday in high season and Friday to Sunday other times. There is also a good pizzeria which is a 15/20 min walk away (or a couple of minutes by car). The local village of Piazza Al Serchio with its bars, couple of restaurants, supermarket, train station, river and Tuesday morning market when the village comes alive, is say 3 minutes away by car. The views from this extremely peaceful property are magnificent - the house overlooks the green and fertile Serchio valley, with views of the Apuane and Appenine Alps. This really is the perfect location - an ideal place to unwind deep in the countryside, yet close enough to all local amenities, and a convenient base for exploring by car or train. For more about the area and days out see location section. Enjoy a holiday with a difference!
