La Fucina - Holiday Villa in Tuscany
House Outlook binkie pool1 website binkie patio1 website

La Fucina (“The Forge”) is a renovated barn with a private pool situated in one acre of vineyard with a vegetable garden and orchard. This property is secluded but not isolated.

La Fucina nestles above the Serchio valley which runs through the Garfagnana area of Tuscany. The private pool is 10 metres by 5 metres and enjoys stunning panoramic views of the Serchio valley. 

La Fucina was transformed from a barn into a comfortable dwelling house in 2006/2007 and is constructed from the local “Cardoso” stone, named after the quaint, but lively little village just up the hill.

This barn renovation retains all the character of a Tuscan country dwelling with chestnut beams and terracotta tiles whilst giving the guest all that is required for modern living; namely, a full modern kitchen, a washing machine/tumble dryer, a dishwasher, a fridge freezer and a fully stocked kitchen with modern cooking utensils.

In the open plan kitchen the dining table seats 6-8 people easily. You can eat inside and enjoy the views from the full length double patio doors over the valley or dine outside on the patios.

Running along the two double patio doors coming from the open plan kitchen and living room is a substantial patio which catches the morning sun and is shady in the afternoon. This is perfect for those who need the shade in the hot afternoon.

There is also a newly constructed patio complete with a dining suite of teak garden furniture, seating from 6-8 people. This new patio is situated near the gable of the house. This also enjoys panoramic views of the valley and is ideal for al fresco dining.

There is a flat screen HD TV with an extensive range of DVDs.

There is a downstairs utility room/toilet which houses the washing machine/tumble dryer. Upstairs there is a substantial bathroom with a power shower, toilet and bidet.

 La Fucina has two bedrooms but accommodates 6 persons by reason of the 4 seater fully sprung bed/sofa in the open plan living room.

The Master Bedroom has vaulted beamed ceilings and a king size cast iron bed. There are bedside tables, a beautiful dresser with mirror, double wardrobe and blanket box/window seat – all made from chestnut. From the dual aspect windows you can see the panoramic views of the valley and a view of the pool and dining terrace and vines.

The Second Bedroom has twin cast iron beds, which can also be made up into a double bed. This bedroom has vaulted beamed ceilings, a chestnut dresser and a double wardrobe. The second bedroom looks out over the vegetable garden, the vines, the drive, the Cypress tree lined drive and the private pool. 

As previously stated, the living room has a four seater bed/sofa which is fully sprung and therefore La Fucina comfortably accommodates 6 people.

All bedding, sheets and towels are supplied.
