Agriturismo La Palazzina - Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Lucca

Type: Farmhouse accommodation
Geographical Location: Hill
n°7 Apartment . Total Guests 37
This restored holiday-farmhouse is in the heart of the densely wooded Garfagnana valley, one of the few places where man still lives in harmony with nature.
The proverbial hospitality of the local people, the rhythms of a peaceful life, the tranquillity of nature still intact and the natural attractions persuaded me and my colleagues to give visitors the opportunity to appreciate these treasures. Visit the site and dream of staying in this quiet oasis, the fruit of a silk-mill and an old-pottery restoration-project.

This big wood is enclosed between the gentle slopes of the Tuscan-Emilian Appennines, with easy trails that anyone can enjoy, and the harsher chain of the Apuan Alps which are more in tune with the sportier types. The Apuan Alps Park
tourist office in Castelnuovo, has all information you need about natural heritage. On the eastern slopes the Orecchiella Park
opens its doors to families and kids to show them deers, mouflons, falcons, european bears and a beautiful botanical garden replete with mountain flora. All this is enhanced by a visitor centre open to the public. Lakes, woods, trails and hidden corners such as Campocatino, Orto di Donna, the Arni Valley (white-marble quarries), the Omo Morto (Gruppo delle Panie), the Grotta del Vento ( Wind’s Cave ) have marked trails that everyone can enjoy. For mountain-biking, trekking and horse riding lovers, there is a variety of marked trails.
