Exceptionally clean and the owners are fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The whole complex was exceptionally clean and very well maintained.

The owners were very helpful, friendly, attentive and spoke good English.

The location makes a great base for exploring further into Tuscany with Lucca 50mins & Florence 100mins easily reached by car.

Within a 15min walk, within the very laid back town itself are a number of bars/ a pizzeria/restaurants/bakery all much frequented by the locals that are all excellent value for money. Two ATM/bank machines in the town.

Local large supermarket is very well stocked and the fuel prices good.

Parking is ok at the complex but on a quite public road.

Would definitely return.

Super séjour !!!

  • 5 of 5

Dès notre arrivée nous avons été très bien accueillis par Carlo qui nous a fait découvrir les lieux.

La maison était comme dans la description, bien équipée, bien entretenue et décorée avec goût.

La piscine et la propriétés sont propres et entretenues tous les jours. Il est très agréable de se baigner et de se reposer à la piscine.

Tous les jours nous pouvions nous servir en tomates dans le potager de Carlo, elles étaient succulentes!!!

Dès que nous avions une demande, un problème, ... les propriétaires étaient là pour nous aider (ou pour faire rire notre petit garçon!!!).

Il y a pas mal de belles choses à découvrir dans la région : petits villages typiques, grottes, villes fortifiées, ...

Nous avons passé une semaine vraiment agréable, encore merci à Carlo, sa femme et à Paola.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Sarah, Cyril and the little Oscar for their stay in our accommodation; when a family like this write beautiful words about their holiday we can only be grateful and at the same time we feel satisfied and happy. It was a very respectful and educated family that every host would welcome. Hoping for a new summer trip in our Tuscany! Paola and family

Prachtig verblijf!

  • 5 of 5

Mijn partner en ik verbleven begin juli een week bij Il Melograno en ons verblijf was gewoonweg prachtig! Bij de ontvangst werden we met open armen ontvangen door de eigenaars. Het zijn enorm warme, gastvrije mensen die met alle tips en goede raad klaarstaan om je verblijf zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken.

Wij verbleven in huisje "Limonaia": heel mooi en alles wat we nodig hadden, was aanwezig. De eigenaars denken werkelijk aan alles, zijn er altijd voor de gasten en leven voor hun gastenverblijf. Alles is tot in de puntjes verzorgd: niet alleen het huisje maar ook de tuin, zwembad, enz... Het zwembad is groot, ideaal van temperatuur en heel netjes. Elke dag wordt dit grondig schoongemaakt en er is altijd voldoende plaats aan het zwembad. Het is ook heel rustig aan het zwembad, ideaal om te relaxen.

Het is zeker de moeite om eens te gaan eten in Gallicano zelf (niet duur) of in het naburige stadje Barga (gezellig!). Er zijn voldoende mogelijkheden voor uitstappen in de buurt (omgeving Lucca) en de eigenaars geven je hiervoor alle info.

We hebben nog maar zelden zo'n gastvrije, sympathieke eigenaars en zo'n prachtig huisje en zwembad gezien!

Casi como en casa

  • 5 of 5

El lugar es muy agradable. Está dispuesto de manera que a pesar de existir la casa de los propietarios y tres casitas para los huéspedes en ningún momento hay sensación de falta de intimidad. Es algo que intencionadamente cuidan los propietarios. Por cierto, tanto Carlo como si hija Paola muy amables, asequibles y serviciales. Nos alojamos en Limonaia, la casa más pequeña pero suficiente para tres personas como era nuestro caso (dos adultos y un niño). La limpieza y el orden absolutamente impecables tanto en la casa como el el jardín y la magnífica piscina. Solo echamos en falta un horno en la cocina. El menaje de la cocina bastante completo. El lugar es muy tranquilo. Desde la casa se tarda una hora y media en llegar al centro de Florencia. Hay alojamientos mejor situados pero dificilmente tan acogedores como este. Por cierto, fuimos los primeros españoles en alojarnos en este lugar. Sin duda volvería.
