Our beautiful stone house in Vergemoli is finished and had its first visitors in July/August 2013. The 3 level stone house is set in 10,000 square metres of land in a national park in the Garfagnana, the magnificent mountains near Lucca and Bagni di Lucca in northern Tuscany.
We are now taking bookings for 2017. Casa Debbio is available from 7th May. If you have any questions please email me…firstname.lastname@example.org.
The views from the house are wonderful in any season.
We bought a ruin which was too far gone to repair, so the original house was demolished and the new one was begun in March 2011. We are delighted with the results.
This year we added a pergola at the front of the house. We are hoping wisteria will cover it in a year or 2.
On the ground floor is the large kitchen and living room.
On the first floor is a study, toilet and the main bedroom and ensuite.
On the top floor are 2 more bedrooms, each with an ensuite.
Work on the garden is an on going project. We have some wonderful new stone walls and plantings are underway. The property was originally a working farm and the terraced land has fig, walnut, chestnut, olive and fruit trees and we have planted lots more. We have a great barbecue and a vegetable garden beside the house.
We have a mountain spring which supplies water to the house, and feeds our frog fountain.
The village of Vergemoli is a 2 minute drive, or ten minute walk from the house. It is a beautifully kept village. A bar is open in the morning and afternoon and there is an excellent shop open 6 days a week for 4 hours a day, in the morning or afternoon. There is also a pharmacy open part time. The nearest supermarket is 8 kilometres away in Gallicano.
Vergemoli is about a 40 minute drive from Lucca and is perfectly situated in the quiet mountains of the Garfagnana. We think the house would be a perfect place for a group of friends to gather for a peaceful break from the world.
There are hundreds of beautiful villages in the area to explore, many with excellent restaurants where you can enjoy fresh, local food, and discover some wonderful local festivals.
The house is available for rent now. Please email me at email@example.com for more information. Please email rather than leave a comment below. I sometimes miss those and I would hate you to think I wasn’t interested.

Here are some more views from the house. The view changes constantly and is spectacular in any season.
