Died and gone to heaven

  • 5 of 5

his has to be the most secluded, beautiful, peaceful, enjoyable and relaxing holiday we have ever had, and we have 2 young (8 and 11) children. Finding the villa was an adventure, staying in the villa was a delight, we cannot wait to go back... which we will! I've no doubt for some families this will not be right, but for us, we thought it was heaven. The accommodation was immaculate, and the care shown by our hosts, (whom we actually only saw on arrival and when we left - they stay offsite), was nothing short of amazing. If you're looking for literally perfect, off the beaten track, quiet, restful and peaceful holidays, this is it.... Just don't book it when we want to!!

Lee, Kay and Melissa from Ledbury UK. This will be a long review but well worth the read. My family and I have travelled worldwide and always stopped in hotels so this was the first time we had ever rented a house and we were a little nervous and apprehensive as we all hear and see horror stories on the news and via social media about holidays going wrong BUT book with confidence Lorraine was always quick to reply to any and all emails when booking and only a phone call away when we arrived even late on Sunday. Thank you Lorraine. The House 1 hour 30 minutes from Pisa. You gain access to the house via a private half mile long drive way with security Gates half way down. The pictures of the house and grounds do not do it any justice it's better in real life. The house is immaculate, well maintained and very peaceful/quiet the owners are the best we arrived late Sunday evening and had no opportunity to buy any food so they went back home and russelled up some food for us and brought it back with a homemade cake about three days into our holiday they left us a basket full of fresh produce and vegetables and a second home cake for the start of the second week of our holiday. The owner's come to the house every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to clean the pool not that you will ever noticed them there because they come at around 6:30 a.m. they clean the house from top to bottom every Saturday at 2:30 p.m. even kept us supplied with dishwasher tablets and washing detergent for use in washing machine it's the little things that make a holiday special and Mr and Mrs Giorgi are the perfect hosts. Thank you xx

Stunning villa in a stunning secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Selected this villa based on the secluded location and rural surroundings. It certainly delivered.

It is situated in a beautiful setting and offers a completely private retreat. Inside and out the villa is immaculate and well equipped.

Rosable & Giorgio are meticulous in their care including discreetly cleaning the pool very regularly. The local fruit and desserts were a very welcome addition.

The local village of Corfino is 5 minutes drive and is really lovely. It has 2 small shops where you can buy local produce.

Definitely a villa we would return to.

Private secluded piece of Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

Very private and secluded villa, beautiful location away from the beaten track, pool and outside areas absolutely wonderful. The villa has plenty of space for a family and the facilities were excellent. If you're looking for something completely secluded then this is perfect for you. It's a fair drive to anywhere with a shop or restaurant (30 mins to the nearest big town). The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. Only downside (and this is obviously not the fault of the owners) is the Tuscany insects which can be a pain - recommend some good insect repellant and an electric "zapper" to combat these!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are glad you liked the setting and the house! Seclusion it is! For the benefit of future guests, do note that whilst town is a 20 min drive, there are some basic shops and also a small choice of restaurants in the village which is a couple of kms away, and some others on the way into town. Unfortunately this year was a pain with insects as it was incredibly hot, but on the plus side mosquitoes are rare! Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you again.

Romantic retreat, seclusion, privacy and views

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous villa with plenty of space, with mountainous views, seclusion and privacy for 2 couple or a family of 4. Rosalba and her husband take meticulous care of their property, your visit and the pool which is heated by solar panels. Comfortable beds can be unusual in rental villas but these were the exception.

Really well equipped kitchen and log wood fire burner for those chilly evenings. We almost ran out of wood on our visit but our hosts were vigilant to our needs. The cake and eggs were an unusual treat not had on previous vacations, on other destinations.

The drive up is adventurous and the access road to the villa is a little challenging but secure. Drive further up the mountain to the national park area. Visits to the local towns are amazing and the locals really don't mind you trying out your Italian.

I not only recommend this villa but also Tuscan retreats, go for it folks!

We'll be back!

Situated high in the mountains 2km from the village of Corfino, this is a really peaceful retreat in the depths of the countryside, affording total privacy for a relaxing holiday. The village of Corfino itself has a basic shop, a couple of hotels with restaurants and a further two restaurants, so the house does not feel too remote!

The National Park of Orecchiella is only a 10 minute drive, perfect for walking and Eagle spotting!

There are supermarkets in the local village of Pieve Fosciana, a 15 minute drive and the market town of Castelnuovo is 20 minutes away.

For days out, the medieval town of Barga is 35 min.; Lucca 1 hr 15 min., Pisa, 1h. 35 min.
