Un petit paradis

  • 5 of 5

Gello est un magnifique petit village un peu oublié des circuits touristiques, les gens y sont charmants. La location était parfaite pour nous (5personnes), très calme, très propre et nous avons pu faire des excursions en montagne, à la mer, à Lucca et Pise, il y a aussi des grottes magnifiques. La route est étroite pour arriver, mais il faut mériter Gello !

Nous avons été très bien accuilli par Enrico qui est très serviable et très honnête.

Nous avons envie de revenir

Ein wunderbares Ferienhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Ferienhaus ist wirklich herrlich, wenn man die Natur der Toskanischen Umgebung erleben will aber trotzdem eine bequeme und gemütliche Wohnung haben will dann ist diese Ferienhaus Ideal.

Von hier aus kann man wirklich alles geniessen die Natur und die Stadt von Lucca die knappe 30 Minuten von hier entfernt ist.

Das Ferienhaus hat alles was man braucht besonders nützlich war auch Enrico der sich sehr gut um uns gekümmert hat und uns gute Ratschläge gegeben hat.
