About David Saisi
Ciao, I'm David and from 2005 I manage Le Capanne holiday house. Before I worked as an HR manager in a TLC company. From 2005 to now I have seen about 1000 persons in my property and each one has helped me increasing my love for Garfagnana area. From 2013 I'm a mountains guide and I manage the Battiferro park in Fornovolasco: we offer canyoning for families and a lot of fun. See you soon David
David Saisi purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why David Saisi chose Fabbriche di Vallico
The first time I saw The huts in 2005 fell in love with this place with spectacular views of the surrounding villages and mountains. Since then every time I come here I'm happy with my choice

Sports & Adventure Activities
Super location, super relax
Bellissima location. Curata, pulita, rilassante. Le Capanne sono un complesso veramente bello e ben tenuto, con un magnifico giardino, alberi da frutto, lavanda profumata. Sono andata con la mia famiglia (con una bambina di 3 anni) e siamo stati benissimo. Il padrone di casa, Davide, è persona ospitale e accogliente, sempre pronto a dare informazioni e suggerimenti per visitare la zona e coccolare i suoi ospiti...perfino portandoci le paste a colazione! Ve lo consiglio. Noi, spero, ci torneremo il prossimo anno!
Special interest holidays: Every Wednesday on request you can enjoy our trip on Alpi Apuane at euro 50 per person lunch included. Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on request you can enjoy "Degustibus": by bus we go to a Restaurant testing Garfagnana tipycal food. The price is euro 40 per person (bus+dinner), baby menu are availables at euro 15 (bus+dinner). From 2013 I manage a canyonig park for families called Parco del Battiferro in Fornovolasco: if you like nature Garfagnana is a paradise and we suggest you the best you can do! Coast/Beach: The Viareggio and Versilia coast is about 75 minutes away by car but can also be reached by bus or train. The Cinque Terre is also within easy reach by car or by train (about 2,5 hours). Travel: Nearest airport is Pisa approx 1 hour drive away. This gives you the choice of flying from locations throughout the UK and also allows you to take advantage of the many low cost airlines that now fly to the region. Although there is train service to Barga-Gallicano (about 10 km from the property) we would suggest that a car is essential. Distances: Once you arrive, with so much space and such peaceful surroundings it is hard to tear yourself away but the close proximity to many of Italy's major attractions including Lucca and Pisa make this an ideal base from which to explore. Barga, a mediaeval walled town with summer music festival and beautiful 11th century cathedral, 20 km. Lucca, 'city of art', has cultural events, antique markets and many fine shops, 50 km. Pisa, with its leaning tower, 'Campo Santo' and riverside palaces, 45km. Further Details: Restaurants: Fobbia restaurant and pizzeria is at 4km. Eliseo excellent restaurant is at 10km. Il Totto restaurant for homemade food is at 4km. Il Rondone restaurant is at the Grotta del Vento. Gallicano with all facilities is at 10km.
