Design house in Tuscan style surrounded by nature - RESIDENZA 'AI SORBI'

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,184 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property


Surrounded by the nature of the Val Pedogna, near the natural park of the Alpi Apuane, in a secluded and quiet position, the Residence “Ai Sorbi” is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The entire property has been recently renovated and equipped with elegant furniture, with the typical Tuscan architecture mixed up with a modern style. The owner Andrea Salvetti is an artist who built this home with the help of some of the best designers (E.Sottsass, G.Pesce,A.Ciffo etc.). Moreover, the position of the house is really perfect, since it is surrounded by the nature of a valley but 22 km away from Lucca and 35 km away from the sea. You can easily reach the Garfagnana, with its typical products (porcino mushrooms, chestnuts flour and hulled wheat), as well as Pisa, Florence, Siena and other Tuscan destinations. The stone swimming pool is 13x6 m and you can get to the property through 500 m of a paved road.

Great Place for Home Base

  • 4 of 5

I loved the place. We had a family vacation and this was "home base" for two weeks while we wandered Italy. It is very modern. The owner was very accomodating. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars for two reasons - 1 - it was a bit remote if one wanted city action and 2 - There were no cleaning fluids such as dishwasher soap, very little in the way of condiments such as salt & pepper. I would highly recommend this place and may just go back again. Beautiful view of the mountains and nice & quiet after a long day out & about. Local restaurants, specifically Il Bivio, were excellent!! And little "Blackie" the kitty was a nice greeter. Loved the fact all the windows opened up for fresh air during the day. Lovely spot!

Wonderful pool.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location on top of a hill with great view of the valley! The house is beautiful, spotless clean and well equipped! In the description it says "wifi available" but it is not functional and will probably never work properly! So don't count on it or on mobile connection either.

The pool is just wonderful! It's large, fresh and always clean! We loved it and spent lots of time dashing around it!

Location good, short drive to supermarket and to Lucca!

Would definitely recommend to anyone and would love to come back!

fantastic family holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an absolutely wonderful week in the Villa Sorbet this summer! The villa itself was lovely- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a lovely large kitchen/dining room with beautiful views of the hills. The house was spotlessly clean, with comfy beds and plenty of space for us (2 adults and children aged 10 and 12). The location is so peaceful, and the view from the pool amazing- we didn't want to leave! We spent a lot of time in the pool, playing table tennis and just enjoying the tranquility. Patrizia was very friendly and welcoming, but not at all intrusive. We would love to return, and really recommend this villa.

Perfect tuscan vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful house in the peacefull countryside north of Lucca! Our kid's (16-13-10-7) loved the pool, the tarzan rope, feeding the pig and walking Eldra,the dog. They even survived 2 weeks without TV!

We loved: the outdoor eating spaces (pic-nic table below the house, and the table below the canopy right beside the entrance). The very peacefull surrounding, the view, the flowers and the quieteness of Serore.

The property is very well situated for visiting Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Cinqueterre and the seaside. After a long day of sightseeing it is wonderfull to come back to the quietness of the house and the refreshing pool. During the hottest days, we would lose up to 7-8 C. driving from Lucca to the house!

The Owners, Andrea and Patrizia are nice and helpfull, they recommended some activities, restaurants and were very nice to talk to. They worked hard to keep this place clean and tidy and they succeded well! Thanks to both of you!

We even had the chance to share a meal with the owner's family on the last evening, a pizza party, cooking pizza in their woodfired pizza oven, witch was a perfect ending of a great vacation.

Note that this review is for residenza Ai Sorbi.

It was lifetime memory for our family!

Perfect location to visit Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Ideally and quietly located in a magnificent and wild countryside, the house was perfect for us, and fully compliant with the description. House decoration, confort, and amenities were perfect. The only small regret was the absence of WIFI connection, but this should be fixed shortly according to the very nice and helpfull hostess, Patrizia.

The surroundings are just wonderful, with many touristic highlights in a radius of 100 kms, and it is such a treat, after a day visit in the crowd, to return to the quiet surroundings of the house and to dive into the nice swimming pool !

Patrizia was also very helpful in providing us with useful tips and good adresses (restaurants in particular) closeby !

"The place is absolutely ...

  • 5 of 5

"The place is absolutely fantastic. Sorbi house is spacious, very comfortably furnished, clean and has all necessary equipment. Environment, as for us, great! Silence, peace and beautiful views. Offer very faithfully describes the place and the house - however, the biggest advantage of this offer is Patrizia - the owner, and her husband - Andrea. Patrizia is an extremely cheerful and ready to help in any subject. She is ready to help in every problem and patiently answers all questions. We highly recommend this place! Super holiday!"
