Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location in heart of Garfagnana. Peaceful and relaxing. Franca is wonderful. She made us feel very welcome throughout and is passionate about ecology and the natural environment. Our daughter enjoyed the trek on horses through countryside. There are chickens, horses and big friendly cats who will let you stroke them forever. The house is renovated to a really high standard and we had a fabulous time.

Poppio September 2010.

  • 5 of 5

Have just got back having stayed for one week at this property and can heartily recommend it. Staff very friendly and in an excellant location. Clean and tidy and quiet.Views and location are excellant. Found that local restaurants were closed on a Wednesday. GPS position given for the location in the pamphlets is wrong if relying on gps to get you to the location.For a relaxing holiday it cannot be beaten. Would definitely stay there again.It was nice to see the horses, cats and dogs and goats at the farmhouse. The route in from the North I think it is the SR 445 is about 46 kilometres long and will take at least an hour and ten minutes, it is very windy?. Overall an excellant week and would recommend it.

A good place for the hole family

  • 4 of 5

We stay in the summer of 2009 with two families.

The location of pioppi is beautifull, near by a little village. The swimming pool was great for are children (10, 13 and 13 year). They like the horses, cats and dogs and there was a lot of space around the house.

Pioppi was a clean house and there were enough rooms to stay in with two families (7 persons)

It is an beautifull place for rest and we like the people of Pioppi. They were friendly and nice.

Bellissimo week end!

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato nella casa dei Castagni per un week end con un gruppo di amici, tutto è stato molto bello e gradevole, la casa ben tenuta, pulita e dotata di tutto, anche gli asciugamani da piscina, un bellissimo giardino con gazebo tavoli e griglia dove abbiamo cucinato dell'ottima carne!

La piscina si presenta più lontana ma la si raggiunge con una passeggiata a piedi giu per la collina.

La propietaria Franca molto disponibile e gentilissima.

Consiglio sicuramente
