Description

This property is situated in an ancient hamlet named "La Rocca" and dating back to the 11th century which was a former base for pilgrims and Templar Knights on their journey to the "Terra Santa" (Holy Land). The owner recently bought what was once a ruin at the borders of the hamlet and restored it in total respect of the original structure, using antique materials, hand-made cotto floors and beamed ceilings. The interiors have been furnished very comfortably and with all modern amenities, including a relaxing room with Jacuzzi. The particular 'knight theme' furniture of the dining room, with original metal armors and decorations reflects the owner's passion for the Templars' history adding a special atmosphere to the interiors. The property boasts beautiful views on the landscapes of Garfagnana, a very attractive and still unspoilt region north of Lucca. This is an ideal getaway for those fond of hiking who love exploring pretty villages and Romanian churches. The swimming pool (3,5 x 10 m) has been placed on the most panoramic point on the estate, granting stunning views.

It was marvelous! The children felt as if it was 800 years ago and enjoyed the pool (obviously). We enjoyed the view and the fact that everything is so well cared. Thanks for everything and we hope to be back some day.

We had a magical week at Gran Burrone. The villa far exceeded our expectations. The home, the views, local wine and the serenity of the area provided us all a dream vacation. We also thoroughly enjoy many evenings in the Templar knight room.
