land of wolves and brigands

Near Lucca, between the Apuan Alps and the Apennines, lies the Garfagnana – a green and wild land, disputed for a long time between the Estensis, Medicis and the Republic of Lucca.

It’s a land of spectacular and intact landscapes with natural and cultural trails in this unique part of Tuscany. Natural parks, karst caves, castles, medieval villages combined with the pleasure of genuine cuisine with slow food products invite you for an unforgettable stay.
