La Locanda del Cardinale is an old stone country house, which dates back to 1897. In the past, the building was an integral part of the dwelling of the peasants who worked the land of the farm of the “Gemignani family”. With the abandonment of the countryside at the end of the 1900s, the farm experienced a period of severe decay, only to be finely restored over the years in respect of the typical Tuscan style. Being partially collapsed, the original Tuscan stone found on site was used for its reconstruction.
Today, it is a magical refuge of charm, where you can experience a special experience just a few kilometers from Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, surrounded by the wonderful landscapes of nature, in an oasis of peace that only Tuscany can offer.
