|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
This is an exceptional property, situated in 16 hectares of land, including vineyards, olive groves & a chestnut wood with stream, ideal for picnics. The views are unbeatable - overlooking Barga & the Apuane Alps.
All this peace & tranquillity, yet less than 4 km from the Medieval town of Barga, with its renowned restaurants, cobbled streets, and 10th century cathedral,& a 700m walk to the local village for excellent restaurant, & shop.
Restored to a very high standard, with chestnut beamed ceilings and terracotta floors, traditional quality furniture and fabrics. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens in the main house & the romantic fully equipped barn, with a further kitchen/diner/living room , bedroom leading to covered private terrace, & en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi. The pool is brand new, boasting stunning views - the perfect place to relax.
If required, we can arrange helicopter transfer from Pisa; meals on site, daily cleaning, horse riding.
We hade a wonderful time in the 2 wonderful houses and the view were even more fantastic in real, than in the pictures. The pool were also awesome.
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!
The property is wonderful - infinity edge pool with a stunning view, privacy, comfortable beds, excellent outdoors space - we were 3 generations staying there and everyone enjoyed it. The hosts are wonderful and access to the property and surrounding areas is easy. Would definitely go again!
My 5 siblings and spouses decided to vacation together. I was charged with finding a villa that would accommodate each person's dreams. Well, we definitely succeeded with this property! From our arrival with a special Tuscany meal, to the fragrant flowers that surrounded the villa, to the draw-dropping views of the Italian Alps, to our spectacular eternity pool….every detail was perfect! The pictures depicted an oasis….they were spot on! The entire property (the Mordini Estate) is immaculate and meticulous! Every detail was perfect! As my sister-in-law said…"I grazed my way around the property….all that grows is organic and edible". Daniela was so accommodating…and was kind enough to meet with us when we lost our way. We were all so impressed that we have already spoken of returning….and I have provided friends with links to consider this property for their own vacation. Barga is beautiful…and alluring….a magical place! Lucca was a gem….I want to go back and explore more! We loved the Festival of Lights at Pisa…a place we actually had not even planned to visit….that turned out to be a wonderful additional excursion. Truly a location to explore and delight in! Thank you…thank you!!!
We had al lovely vacation in this beautiful house. The only problem we had was that the house is not a very good place for a person who has difficulties with staircases.
House is great and clean, view is - well, you can see the picture!! Barga is wonderful ad the whole area is great.
Daniela (the owner) is friendly and helpfull.
We really enjoyed oue vacation.
I only wish that there would be a bit more flexibility in the weekdays for renting the house. We had to pay extra for a day we could not be in the house and we had to leave a day earlier we would have liked to only bacause of the rules - although there was no-one renting the house before ore after us. But I believe Daniela did not know this.
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!
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.
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.)
