Our base for this week of walking in wild Tuscany is a refurbished farmhouse villa situated on a ridge overlooking the Serchio valley and surrounded by woodland and traditional Tuscan field terracing. The villa is located on a working farm with a small vineyard, olive grove, and orchard. The traditional Garfagnana stone farmhouse of exposed stone walls, chestnut beams and terracotta tiled roof, has very comfortable bedrooms with high ceilings and a cosy sitting room with a log burner for cool evenings. Guests also have free use of a hot tub and an open-air 12m x 6m swimming pool which is purified with salt rather than chlorine. The pool is surrounded by stone paving and has a range of wooden sunloungers and chairs. Meals are taken on a wisteria-clad dining terrace with huge rustic table and benches.
