    A peaceful and relaxing three bedroom Italian villa awaits you...nestled into the Tuscan hillside, engulfed by trees and flowers of Garfagnana, and quietly tucked below the cobblestone streets of the medieval village of Cardoso.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    About my land ....rich in history and environments still uncontaminated, Garfagnana is a heaven to all those who love nature.

    Hidden between the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Emilian Appennines, intersected by the river Serchio, it is dotted by small towns and villages where ancient traditions live on.

    Near to Barga (7km) in a peaceful and traditional Tuscany place (perfect to visit Lucca, Pisa and Florence ).
