Ein perfekter Urlaub in einem tollen Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus war genauso schön wie wir es uns vorgestellt hatten. Die Ausstattung ist super, wir haben alles gefunden was wir brauchten u d noch viel mehr.

Das Haus ist perfekt für zwei Familien. Die Zimmer sind groß und schön eingerichtet. Das Highlight ist natürlich der Garten mit dem Pool. Unsere Kinder (und auch wir 😊....) haben das sehr genossen.

Der Urlaub war viel zu schnell vorbei, und wir haben uns alle fest vorgenommen wiederzukommen.

Auch die komplette Abwicklung und Buchung mit Lorraine im Vorfeld war unkompliziert und sehr nett. Vielen Dank dafür!

A true Tuscan retreat

  • 5 of 5

Imagine the views of the Lake district, the weather of California, the food Venice at the prices of Mexico and you get the general idea. I could not have wanted anything better as a get away yet maintaining a little civilization close by. The property was comfortable and spacious and I would not hesitate to go back given the opportunity.

Fabulous !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just perfect ! We had two family's staying there and there was ample amounts of room. The house has everything you may need to sit back and enjoy your stay, the owners have really thought about the needs of their guests.

One of our favourite points about staying here is that the location is out of this world ! So peaceful and so beautiful. We felt like we really fit into the Italian lifestyle and can not wait to return !

It was a fabulous place to stay, lots of room.

  • 4 of 5

The villa was in a lovely position not over looked with the most amazing views of snow capped mountains. Everything has been thought out within the villa to make our stay there wonderful. Both the inside and the gardens are so lovely, I could have spent my whole holiday just relaxing by the lovely pool. Must book another holiday there

Beautiful House, Magnificent Views, Lovely Area

  • 5 of 5

I think this is a beautiful house, with amazing views in a lovely , peaceful area. I wish it was mine!

The house is well furnished, and there is plenty of room. The kitchen is well equipped and the house was very clean. My bed was extremely comfortable, and I slept like a log.

The swimming pool was wonderful, and a good size, and the garden too.

The place is very well appointed to visiting a number and variety of towns and villages. We had some lovely trips, with breathtaking scenery, seeing Camporgiano, Lucca as well as the beautiful Barga and many others : we visited somewhere different daily, all a short drive from our wonderful villa. Shopping was very good and there are some lovely food and clothing markets.

Highly reccomended what a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house. It is everything that the description says and more. We had everything we could have wished for in the property. The pool and garden are amazing. We often stay in France or Spain but this part of the world is by far my favorite. Thank you so much for such a great stay

The villa is situated in a beautiful village location, in the heart of the Garfagnana, 1 hour 15 minutes north of Lucca. This is real Olde Worlde Italy!

This charming little village has a basic shop, and a village bread van also comes 6 days a week. There is a bar/cafè and some other shops circa 1km away, and Piazza al Serchio, the closest larger village has many shops and amenities, and a few restaurants. Come and experience authentic Italian life whilst having the benefit of a private house with it's own garden and beautiful pool!

This is a peaceful location, in the midst of the countryside, with many pretty hilltop villages to visit, as well as National Parks. There is the Santuario at Argegna, the lake of Gramalazzo, the fortress of Verrucole, and the property is also ideal for exploring Lunigiana.....

For non local days out, the coast (Lerici and the Cinque Terre) are just over an hour away by car, Lucca is a 90 minute drive, Pisa 1 hr 40 mins and Florence 2 hours or so... The market town of Castelnuovo is a 25 min drive and the beautiful mediaeval town of Barga 40 mins away.....

NB - final access is via a 20 M long narrow road way but one can enter driveway and turn around for coming back out! For those guests with large cars it may be preferable to park at the bottom of this short access road.
