Calm and serenity

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: For future renters, do note that we have since added a second service kitchen next to the eating area to make the terrace more functional and to ensure cooking facilities and so forth are immeidately on hand.

wonderful property with pool

  • 4 of 5

The Casa and Capanna del Rosso property was a excellent choise. A wonderful house where we enjoyed with 2 families (4 adults & 4 Kids) our vacation. The property & pool is well maintained and clean. The owner was extremly helpful in general and supported us to get the best reservations for various restaurants in the area. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the area which we enjoyed very much. The English of the owner was on very good level. We would highly recommend this property to friends or any other tuscan fan. For everyone enjoying the tuscan landscape/nature with a great outdoor pool area this property is highly recommended.

Incomparable beauty and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Charming villa fo people with good legs

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and we are glad you loved the house and the area! For the benefit of future guests, In terms of arrival day, we try our best to be flexible outside of July and August, but to depart on a Sunday is the worst day for the owners since it leaves them with 6 nights to fill later on which is incredibly difficult and they are therefore left with a large gap in income. A Thursday or Friday is for example much easier to accommodate. For this party, do please note that on checking our files we did only charge you pro rata for your 6 night Sunday to Saturday stay so we only charged for the days that you stayed!! We do not charge for times the house isn't used. Thank you again.

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.
