About Francesca

Gianluca and Laura: we are both in our 40ies, love animals, walking and explore the world ! We'll be happy to give you tips on area and what to do/see, we've lived here all our life. Gianluca is a 'mountain-bikers', he'll teach you all secret tracks around the hills!

Why Francesca chose Montale

This was our family house: we live in a villa a few meters from this one. The house has been made and restored for a family life, with top quality finishings and furniture. The strong point is actually the large garden, with olives, plenty of space to relax, and the wide pool, with a whirpool part.

What makes this villa unique

We are ideally situated to explore both Tuscany or Liguria: Cinque Terre Park entry point is at 20 minutes, Lucca, Viareggio, PIsa, the beaches all reachable in a few minutes. Mountain and Mariine national Parks surround us ! Come see the whales in the Genoa Gulf!

Lunigiana is a beautiful and unspoilt hidden corner of Tuscany where time has stood still

Uniquely located in Northern Tuscany close to the borders of Liguria and Emilia Romagna, Lunigiana is a stunningly beautiful, uncontaminated and undiscovered area where life remains traditional.

The strong point of our place is that it's situated at a crossroad between sea, mountains and historical towns.

With easy access to beautiful coastal venues including the Cinque Terre, Lerici, Portovenere & Portofino, as well as cultural delights including Lucca, Pisa, Cararra, Parma and Florence, Villa L'Incanto is situated in an enviable location.

Also nearby are numerous walking trails in the Apuan Alps and Appenines, the charming unspoilt medieval towns of Fivizzano, Pontremoli and Sarzana and other characteristic small villages of Lunigiana.

Easy to reach by car and away from the madding crowd. Nearest train station 5 minutes at Aulla.

Pisa airport 1hr 15mins, Genova & Parma airports 1hr 30mins.

Beaches such as Lerici, Cinque Terre, Tellaro, Portovenere are less than 30 minutes away. For nature fans: whale watching excursions daily at one hours drive, hiking in the hills of the National Park, mountain bike (it is our speciality: we'll take you to discover our region !), Marine National Park, Genoa Aquarius. Lucca, Pisa, Massa, Carrara and its marble artists and quarries are at easy reach, by car and by train. And don't forget the lively nights of the Versilia beaches: Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi (every wednesday fabulous design clothes outlet market!!) are nearby for a night out or enjoy great sea food!

Un peu déçu.

  • 2 of 5

Points positifs : très beau jardin et belle piscine bien entretenue. Agréable et grand patio toujours a l ombre quand il fait chaud. Pratique pour se rendre au cinq terres depuis gare aulla(parking gratuit) office du tourisme d'Aulla, la dame est d excellents conseils heureusement car la ville d'Aulla n a aucun charme.

Points négatifs : les chiens du voisinage ou du gardien qui dort juste en dessous des fenetres de deux chambres aboient toutes les nuits et le matin nous étions réveillés a 8h00 par les camions, toupies de ciments, betonnière...!!! car il y a un gros chantier de construction juste a côté de la maison. Cest juste un point wi fi dehors devant la maison car en fait c est pour capter la wifi des gardiens et pas de la maison. Vous êtes obligés de passer par chez les gardiens pour sortir et vous devez laisser votre véhicule devant chez les gardiens car on ne peut pas accéder au parking et au sous sol de la maison car c est pour le chien.

Une cafetière 2 tasses pour une location 6/8 et manque de vaisselles (pas de cuillère en bois, pas d essoreuse salade, pas de plats a cake ou tarte,frigo trop petit...)

La surveillance par caméra est génante et même sur la piscine et derriere la porte d entrée il est écrit que les gardiens enregistrent.

Owner's Response: Chere Mme Valerie, Nous sommes heureux que vous avez apprécié la piscine et le jardin. Et nous accueillons toujours les critiques constructives pour améliorer la qualité de notre service à la clientèle, merci!. Nous sommes désolés si il y a eu quelque fois un problème mais la présence du chien est indiqué sur le site et dans la soirée le chien a été enfermé dans son enclos. Puisque nous vivons dans la campagne, il ya aussi d'autres chiens à proximité, mais malheureusement, nous avons aucun contrôle sur ces chiens. D'autre part, on n'a jamais reçu des plaintes de clients précédents, sûrement, il était un problème sporadique. Le chantier est définitivement ennuyeuse, mais ils vont terminer une maison et il sera bientôt terminé aussi le dérangement. Pour Internet nous travaillons maintenant pour améliorer le signal: il sera plus fort avec la nouvelle connexion. Le parking pour les clients est en face de notre maison, à environ 12 mètres de l'entrée de L'Incanto, et vous pouvez toujours aller avec la voiture jusqu’à l’entrée de L’Incanto pour décharger vos valises et vos courses. Parking est gratuit, privé et avec la surveillance vidéo et il n’est pas accessibles aux étrangers, pour garantir un maximum de sécurité pour les voitures des hotes. Il n’est pas possible de se garer dans le sous-sol sous la maison parce que il est en communication avec l'espace privé, et d’autre part cette partie de la maison ne semble pas dans les photographies du site . La vidéosurveillance est uniquement pour des raisons de sécurité des clients et est présenté conformément à la loi. La cuisine est équipée avec four, micro-ondes, réfrigérateur, congélateur, lave-vaisselle, cafetière, machine à café »et équipé pour 8 personnes, mais on comprendre que chacun a à juste titre ses propres exigences. Merci pour vos avis et pour avoir quitté la maison propre et bien rangé. Nous aurions aimé plus de clarté sur le nombre d'invités, car il est important pour nous de savoir si il ya 6 ou 8 personnes, mais sûrement, il était un malentendu, clarifié rapidement. Nous vous envoyons nos meilleures salutations.
