Great stay at a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located at a great location. It is quit and has a very nice view. The apartment is very big and it has everything we needed and more. We were lucky that the other apartments were empty, so we had the entire location for ourselves. Our 3 boys (12, 16 and 16) enjoyed the pool and the Wifi.

Monica is very sweet and helpful. If we had a question, she immediately came (with a family member for the English language) and answered it and solved any problem.

We will definitely come back again.

The Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant accommodation with enough room for 8 adults to 'have their own space' but still spend time together. Each apartment was well catered for but the kitchen in apartment 3 was to die for - a true chef's delight + a great wood pizza oven and a large outdoor barbeque. Stunning views from every window. Amazing location for exploring the local area. Great pool. Friendly and attentive host. Wonderful towns nearby. We would all have given in more than 5 stars if we could. Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful home.

Lækker stor pool og meget børnevenligt.

  • 4 of 5

Vi var 3 børnefamilier afsted. Poolen var stor og helt igennem fantastisk og var meget flot oplyst om aftenen, hvilket især børnene nød godt af.

Lækkert udeområde og fantastisk beliggenhed.

Mange spændende steder i nærmiljøet at udforske.

Trænger dog til en kærlig hånd med nyt køkenudstyr.

Poolen var det hele værd.

Et skønt sted.

Nestled in a small hamlet in this absolutely beautiful rural area, this property has a fully private pool, but does not feel isolated at all.

Whilst there are no facilities in the hamlet, there are various villages nearby – one with restaurant, pharmacy, basic shop and post office only 2.5km away, and 5km away is the beautiful walled village of Castiglione which has a restaurant, bars, and shops.

For a supermarket, then just 8km away is the village of Pieve Fosciana, with two well regarded restaurants, shops, supermarket, bars, banks and the most wonderful deli providing delicious home cooked hot and cold food to take away, with a daily changing menu. Pop in on the way home from a day out and give yourselves a treat!

Selection of other distances:

• Castelnuovo di Garfagnana – local market town – 15 mins

• National Park of Orecchiella – 20 mins

• Verrucole – with its mediaeval fortress and climbing/zip wire park – 25 mins

• Barga – mediaeval town with cobbled streets, beautiful architecture, Cathedral, gorgeous views and a wide selection of restaurants and gelaterias – 30 mins

• Lucca – mediaeval walled city, and a great day out, 1 hour 10 mins

• Pisa 90 mins or so, and Florence say 2 hours.
