A HOLIDAY THAT ENDED TOO SOON.

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this booking was dead on, the booking process, the villa itself, pool, the owners, the location. I cannot think of a single drawback. All at a reasonable price.

I highly recommend Tuscan Retreats and Allan and Mel, who own the Orbaci. I look forward to returning to their beautiful villa.

FABULOUS HOLIDAY HOUSE, IT TICKED EVERY BOX.

  • 5 of 5
We were 2 families holidaying together. It was the perfect arrangement for us. The location of the house is wonderful, stunning views and within easy striking distance of great days out. Castelnuovo is a lovely town with a good selection of bars and restaurants. A meal at the Fortezza (Fortress) restaurant is a must. The property was clean, well equipped and the owners were helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this property.

ORBACI - GREAT STAY

  • 4 of 5
‘Not many holiday properties can boast stunning mountain views, a refreshing pool and gorgeous gardens to enjoy by day. Still fewer can offer charmingly restored farmhouse interiors, a well equipped kitchen and a terrace lit up by fireflies at night. This made Orbaci a rustic haven in unspoilt Tuscany which I’d definitely recommend to any large group wanting a getaway.’

SUPERB VILLA. STUNNING SETTING. LOVELY POOL.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this villa in July, with 12 family members, from 17 months to 72 years old.
It is just as good as the pictures on the website indicate. A beautifully restored building, and a high standard of finish throughout.
We spent a lot of time around the pool as a family, and there were also enough different spaces around the house and grounds for us to spend time apart when we wanted to.
It was nice to be in the quiet countryside, but with Castelnuovo close enough to buy whatever we needed, and to eat out.
We would definitely recommend Orbaci for the summer, and I can imagine the location being beautiful in the winter too.
Top marks all round.

BETTER THAN ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5
This being my first home rental, I was a little nervous that the pictures in the ad might have been a couple years old or taken in a favourable light or whatever, but nothing could be further from the truth. This place is unbelieveable. The hosts were beyond gracious, they were very open and friendly, and not just in a professional way. Anyone looking for an authentic experience away from heavy tourist traffic should stay here, no questions asked. Just sign up for your week or whatever and pay the man!! I really can't say enough good things about this without it sounding contrived. The views, the weather, the surroundings, everything, fantastic.

LOVELY VILLA, LOVELY PLACE.

  • 5 of 5
A very beautifully renovated villa and outdoor area. Fantastic for a large family group and friends. Castelnuova is a great town and the Fortezza provided some of the best food we've had in Italy. Plenty to do in the vicinity even better for lounging round relaxing in the beautiful mountains.

Indeed the beautiful fortress, with commanding views over the valley and the mountains beyond, and noted for its classical music events, is 10 minutes on foot & here one will find a good quality restaurant serving excellent local food..

The town itself has a weekly market, bars, restaurants, shops, and train station for easy exploring.

Castelnuovo 3 mins or so

Mediaeval town of Barga - 15 minutes

Lucca - 45 minutes

Pisa - 1 hour 15 minutes
