Calm and serenity

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the property for one week in April 2007. There were 6 adults, 3 children and one small baby. We found the property to be beautiful, with everything we needed and everything clean and prepared for our visit. Our hosts were helfpul without being intrusive and provided good advice and ideas of what to do an see in the area. The pool area is gorgeous and there is lots of space for kids to jump and run and play games.
We have only some small comments for potential future guests: the main house and barn are lovely but are not well connected to each other (pretty steep rock stairs). This was okay for us, but may not be for other less able guests. Also, the main house only had a small balcony and the outside table that was pictured in the advertisement was not easily reached from the cooking and lounging areas of the main house (it was sort of below the main part of the house).

As a final point, please take the above two comments as small "things to be aware of" - the property really is magnificant and we would all definitely stay their again as we had a spectacular time!

Owner's Response: For future renters, do note that we have since added a second service kitchen next to the eating area to make the terrace more functional and to ensure cooking facilities and so forth are immeidately on hand.

A perfect week

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at I Cedri for a week with a group of family and friends. It's in a beautiful, tranquil location, yet only a 10 minute drive to Barga or a stroll up the hill to the tiny, peaceful village of Albiano with it's excellent La Terrazza restaurant.

The comfortable accommodation has everything you'll need as well as being tastefully furnished with some great artwork. It has stunning views across to Barga and the mountains . There are two pools and a wonderful al fresco eating area with barbeque.

It's an ideal property for a large group as the property is divided into three apartments and two houses allowing everyone to have their 'own space' whilst still being together.

The owner is very friendly and helpful and the information pack is filled with invaluable tips about the best sightseeing, restaurants etc.

We didn't want to leave!

A Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5
The most amazing place to stay - would absolutely recommend it although access to the pool is not for the faint-hearted as is quite a climb from the villa. Other than this, it is a beautiful place and is a very short distance from Barga which is well worth visiting. The owners who live on site (but some distance away) were charming and helpful; nothing was too much trouble. Hope to return next year.

Sophisticated rural charm!

Peace and tranquillity with superb views. Everything promised was delivered and more.
Excellent large supermarket 10 mins away plus local markets.
Great tennis courts in Barga , 10 mins drive.
Owners hosted optional dinner, not to be missed. Also good local restaurant a short walk up through estate.
Good days out to Florence, Pisa and Lucca.
Accommodation rustic with class! Three kitchens to choose from and an extensive herb garden. Outdoor loggia with large table fantastic for long lunches and evening meals.
Suprisingly very few insects during our two August weeks.

Situated in 16 hectares of land, with wonderful views at every turn, this property is a perfect rural retreat yet a 10 minute drive from he Medieval town of Barga, with its cobbled streets, duomos, and ancient architecture. Barga is renowned in the area for its good quality but reasonably priced restaurants, and often outdoor concerts (mainly classical and jazz) are performed in the evenings, along with firework displays. There is also a station for stress free exploring.

Closer to home and within easy walking distance is the village of Albiano with its good restaurant and shop.

Barga itself is circa 1 hr. from Pisa; 90 min. from Florence; 45 minutes from the walled mediaeval town of Lucca and close to the National Parks of the Apuane Alps. Hilltop villages abound - exploring can be either rural or townie - the choice is yours.

Airports - Pisa 1 hr.; Florence 90 min.; Genoa 2 1/2 hr.; Bergamo 3 hr.; Bologna 2 1/2 hr. (Forli 3 hr. 25 min.)
