Authentic Italian house in stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

The most outstanding thing about this property has to be the amazing expansive view over Garfagnana, and the beautiful area that surrounds it. The pool was clean and well maintained, overlooking a productive plot, that twinkled with fireflies at night. The house was authentic, and spacious, we especially loved the ancient door and key! The tiny village with its church's s bell tower was quiet and interesting to look around, though there is little there. Allesandro was welcoming and helpful, providing us with extra towels for the pool when requested, allowing us to stay an extra few hours on the day we left, and giving us homemade wine and cherries from the trees. Off the beaten track, yet close to Castlenouvo di Garfagnana for restaurants and shops , a beautiful town. Highly recommended

Cosy house with perfect views!

  • 5 of 5

We were staying two families. The house is very cosy, it was enough space for our group of 6 persons. We could find everything we needed in villa. Amazing views to the mountains. Nice small Tuscan village with very friendly community.

We had an intensive program of travelling by car, so it was extremely nice to enjoy evening swim in a big pool.

Our host Alessandro was very attentive (thank you very much for help with our dinner in restaurant in Castelnuovo). We also were suggested a large plate of fresh figs and vegetables from the garden.

Would recommend this property for people who would like to enjoy calm stay as well as those who would like to have a comfortable base for visiting Northern Tuscany.

We travel a lot, and with our friends nominated this place as one of our best we have stayed in summer.

Great place for a relaxing Italian holiday

  • 5 of 5

Nice stone villa with ample space for our large family (6 people). Great view of the surrounding hills and mountains, and a nice pool. The village is quite small, which means you have to drive a few km to shop, but on the other hand it's very quiet and peaceful.

Gragnanella- August 2015

  • 4 of 5

Lovely rustic Italian villa set in the hills above market town. It is quiet location within a village with no local amenities, so driving to the market town (10 mins) necessary for anything. Lovely pool and house. We found it well equipped, bar a few more easy chairs in the lounge. Very friendly and helpful owner.

One thing to note, access to the pool is via front door around the property.
