A relaxing place to take in a view.
We had a very relaxing stay in this old farm house which is full of character with amazing views across the valley to the mountains beyond. The property is situated high in the mountains, it requires a car drive and driver to negotiate the winding road to the car park which is about 50 Mts from the house down a made road. The house is comfortable with a great kitchen for cooking in. The bedroom we had was cosy with an on-suite bathroom. The decor is basic but pleasant. The views are wonderful.We stayed the beginning of October and the evening's were cool and the house will benefit from the new stove about to be fitted on cooler night. We enjoyed the time we had there and may go back but at a different time of year.
Excellent summer getaway in Tuscany
We have stayed 5 nights in this gorgeous farmhouse that has all the amenities one may need.
The location is perfect for relaxing and indulging truly the local flavors and also for exploratory trips to Firenze and Siena.
Kevan and his lovely mother supported us in all respects with advises and guiding - the night discussions over the wine being something to remember.
The house is beautiful with its excellent photographs, sculptures and books library.
We highly recommend it and hope someday be able to return.
Thank you Kevan.

Mooi klassiek huis op prachtige locatie
Met z´n tweetjes genoten van dit mooie klassieke huis. Prachtig uitzicht vanaf het terras en balkon. De woon keuken is zeer compleet, idem de badkamer, woonkamer etc. Veel informatie over de omgeving is er overzichtelijk te vinden, alsmede veel boeken (Engelstalig) en kunst (prachtige sculpturen, foto´s en schilderijen). Iedere dag ontdek je wel wat anders moois in dit grote huis. De eigenaar woont ernaast en is vriendelijk en behulpzaam, en laat je verder met rust. s´nachts lekker stil. Ideaal uitgangspunt voor dagtochten in de bergen (de Garfagnana) alsmede wijnroutes, stadjes zoals Lucca, Montecarlo, maar ook voor een dagje naar het strand.
Hemos tenido una estancia muy agradable. La casa sorprende, el entorno natural mucho más. Ideal para ir a pasar una semana hacer alguna visita a alguna ciudad cercana como Lucca o Pisa y dar largos paseos por las sendas forestales. No decepciona!
Zeer groot en mooi huis op een adembenemende locatie
Wil je ruimte, binnen en buiten dan is dit iets voor jou.
Je loopt als het ware verloren in al de kamers, je komt tijd tekort om rond te kijken in de bibliotheek of dvd s te zien , muziek te beluisteren enz.
Centraal gelegen om steden in buurt zoals Florence, Spezia of lucca te bezoeken maar ook de prachtige dalen van Apenijnen liggen rondom je.
De eigenaars wonen naast de huurwoning maar geven alle privacy.
Je hebt wel een wagen nodig, vanuit Bagne di Lucca is het een slingerbaantje enkele minuten de berg op.
Bagni Di Lucca is famous for Its thermal springs and Roman baths/SPA where you can go and enjoy a massage, sauna in the grotto, spa treatments, beauty therapy without the clamour of the more popular themal spa resorts.
Lucca which is 30 km away is one of the most beautiful cities in italy and the property is ideal as a base for exploring the area .
