Comfortable, well maintained property, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house we rented was called ' Mondolata' and was as shown in the photographs, clean and comfortable. Their guests needs had been thought of with a welcome basket of basic food items, washing up needs and even rubbish bags. When travelling from offshore things like this are appreciated ! The garden was wonderful, and we enjoyed eating our meals on the covered patio. Carlo gave us all the information, advice and literature we needed to get the most out of our stay in the Garfagnana area. Gallicano was an excellent location from which to explore the area and also visit Lucca and The Cinque Terra. We did manage to relax by the pool for a short time. Thank you Carlo and Paola for making our visit so memorable.

Fantastic stay in a beautiful part of Italy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Limonaia for 6 nights in July this year. We cannot recommend this place enough. From the beautiful area of Gallicano and nearby Barga, to the immaculate villas at B&B Il Melograno to the friendly and welcoming proprietors, Paola, Carlo and the whole family - who couldn't do enough for us, this was a fantastic stay. Ideally located for trips into Lucca, Pisa and Florence as well as many of the quieter and less "touristy" areas in the region this was perfect.

As I mention above, Carlo and his family were extremely welcoming and never hesitated to recommend places to go and things to see and we were treated to fresh fruit and veg from their very own self sufficient allotment and fruit plants.

Such a perfect stay!

Sehr schönes Anwesen in der Garfangna!

  • 5 of 5

Ein wirklich sehr schönes Anwesen mit mehreren Ferienhäusern auf einem Anwesen! Die Vermieter sind sehr nette Menschen, die auch mit auf dem Anwesen wohnen. Die ganze Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und auch der Pool ist schön. Man kann sich dort sehr gut entspannen. Es ist trotz der anderen Gäste nie zu voll und man hat genug Privatsphäre.

Unser Ferienhaus war sauber und ordentlich. Das Internet hatte eine gute Signalqualität und man konnte auch Videos schauen. Insgesamt ist die Gegend sehr gut für Wanderungen geeignet. Gallicano selbst ist nicht besonders sehenswert, aber andere schöne Orte wie Sillico, Forrtezza de Verrucule oder die Städte Florenz, Pisa oder Lucca sind gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen. EIn Auto ist sehr empfehlenswert.

Insgesamt ein sehr schöner Urlaub in einem tollen Quartier!

Une adresse à retenir

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans une villa individuelle décorée avec goût et style ! Nous tenons encore à remercier chaleureusement Carlo, sa femme et Paola pour leur gentillesse et leur hospitalité qui font que nous serions bien restés une semaine supplémentaire dans ce havre de paix. Le moindre détail a été pensé pour rendre cette location agréable (jardin aromatique et fruitier, piscine, propreté et fonctionnalité). Nous reviendrons sans hésiter et avec autant de plaisir. Séverine, Romuald et Léa de Limoges.

Owner's Response: Nous avons accueilli Séverine, son mari et sa fille pendant une semaine. Ce fut un plaisir de savoir, des gens très polis, respectueux et toujours souriant. Établissement très propre où ils sont restés. Nous espérons les accueillir à nouveau, merci encore Paula et familiales.

Italian hospitality at it's best.

  • 5 of 5

This is Italian hospitality at it's best. We spent a week in this cosy Limonaia appartment - very nice and clean, nicely decorated, kitchen fully equipped with everything you can think of - The owner Carlo and his daughter Paola are amazing, helping you with everything you need. They will tell you everything there is to know about the surroundings, everything you can do etc. etc.You can relax at the garden & very nice pool, both very well kept. You have your own (private) space outside next to the appartment.

I can not recommend this more. You have to go to B&B Il Melograno!
