About the property


Sleeps 4

Sleeping 4 people, this elegantly converted and restored country villa was originally used as a barn in past centuries and still stands just across the courtyard from the grand farmhouse – likewise now renovated – that it once served.

Set high among the lush green hills which border Liguria and Tuscany and surrounded by a vast olive grove, it guarantees utmost privacy and seclusion and occupies the perfect spot for peaceful relaxation. In addition, the villa’s outdoor jacuzzi pool invites you to bathe at leisure in its heated waters, undisturbed by the clamour of the outside world!

From this privileged elevated position, extensive scenic views can be enjoyed, stretching right from the Apuan Alps inland to the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. The Cinque Terre villages too are very close at hand.

Our best VRBO experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this garden villetta perfect for a small family or two couples, Fabiana and Antonio are the most wonderful hosts one could hope for. We arrived late night after a long trip from Oregon, and there was an extensive cold plate dinner waiting for us! They helped us with plans for the area and told us of secret local places. When my husband's ATM card was eaten by a local machine, Fabiana drove him back down and retrieved it. We found the location perfect for driving to everything in Northern Tuscany. Simply perfect!

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at Villetta Gardenia and it was amazing. The house itself is really nice and charming. With a nice garden and views, the perfect place to relax. It is also very well located, very close to the beach, and half an hour drive to Pisa, Lucca, and La Spezia (boats to the CinqueTerre).

The owners are very friendly people, discreet but disposable for everything you could need.

And we had the dinner of our arrival day in the table when we arrived, and it was completely amazing.

We only could recommend that place. Fabiana & Antonio thanks for made us feel like at home. Jose, Carol & Max.

Wonderful holiday location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house with two wonderful hosts! We had a great stay at the viletta with our two kids (2 years and 6 months). Fabiana and Antonio gave us so many tips for trips to Lucca, Portovenere and sourroundings and spoiled us with delicious italian appetizers. Everything is decorated with so much attention to detail, making you feel right at home.

Thanks for making our holiday so special! Best regards from Cologne, Germany
