The space
Baldo’s House was the old watermill and oil mill of the village of Corsagna, ancient medieval burg within the municipality of Borgo a Mozzano, located 360 meters above sea level, just 30 minutes drive from the city of Lucca and within driving distance of one of nature's most beautiful areas of Tuscany: the Garfagnana valley between the Alpi Apuane and the Apennine Tosco-Emiliano.
The magnificent location on which the house stands affords splendid views:over the valleys, the village and the surrounding hills and mountains.
The road leading to Corsagna offers a very special scenery to those who love nature, as it winds its way through woods and fields, destination of hikes and of horse and mountain bike rides.
The house is dating back to XIX century and it has been wisely renovated by Baldo, grandson of Michele and Pia, while maintaining its original character: the external structure of the cottage has been left unchanged and renovating the interior spaces in faithful Tuscan style. 
Baldo’s house is a traditional Tuscan style apartment, inside, the ceilings are typical of the old Tuscan farmhouses, with flat terracotta bricks and wooden beams and rafters, stone walls, cotto and parquet floors. The comfortable furnishing is in the Lucchese style.
