Tripala farm is a countryside oasis, ideal for family holidays. You can relax by the swimming pool, sunbathe on the terrace or go mountain biking or walking in the spectacular Apuan Alps. Situated in Garfagnana, the farm is an ideal base if you want to visit the historic towns of Tuscany, including Lucca, Pisa and Florence. The coast is only a short journey by car or train so you can explore the beautiful fishing villages of the Cinque Terre and swim in the azure waters. In the nearby medieval villages there are several pizzerias and restaurants serving tasty local cuisine and wines made from grapes ripened on the nearby hillsides. The owners, Carlo and Silvia, speak English and are always on hand to help if you need any advice
We are a family of four, with two girls aged 17 and 20. Silvia is a teacher in a local school, and I run the family farm. We grow organic olives and wheat. Many cats and two dogs are part of the family.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 1970
it's friendly, it's relaxing, not crowded, it's real Italy
The fantastic view of the Apuan Alps, just amazing
What a wonderful relaxing place! Tripala is perched up in the hills with amazing views of the mountain range, especially from the swimming pool.
The apartment itself is in a house consisting of two others but the design is cleverly thought out so that guests are not overlooked by their neighbours and you do feel as if you have the place to yourself. The apartment is clean, tidy and functional. There is a patio and grass area immediately oustide so there was plenty of room for our three young boys to play.
Carlo and the team are wonderful hosts. They are there to help if you need them but don't intrude into your holiday. Their pizza and pasta nights are great fun and an excellent way of experiencing the local hospitality.
There is plenty to do in the area - medieval local villages, beach (40mins), Lucca (1hr) etc
The best compliment i could pay Tripala is to say that we have already booked to go back next year!
Our holiday at Tripala was golden! Nice house, peace and quiet, good food and a lovely swimming pool. We were there for 14 days with our 2 kids and we came back absolutely relaxed. Tripala and the owners as well made us feel welcome and they were very helpfull! We are sure we will visit tripala again!
Heerlijk verblijf, welk appartement dan ook. Bij Tripala kom je tot rust en geniet je van de sfeer van Toscane en de gastvrijheid van de gastheer en -vrouw. En natuurlijk het heerlijke Italiaanse eten😊

The Ligurian and Tuscan coasts are close by, so you can explore the unspoilt fishing villages of the Cinque Terre, laze on the sandy beaches of Versilia or shop glamorous Portofino. The Garfagnana has many pretty medieval villages that hold colourful festivals in summer. You can sample the local cuisine and wine, listen to live music and dance the night away Italian style! Lucca is only 70km away and is well worth a day trip. Marvel at the medieval and renaissance architecture, take a bike ride around the city walls or simply pass the time of day in a pavement cafe', sipping a Prosecco. Pisa and Florence are a maximum 2 hours drive from Tripala. Spring and autumn are the best times to visit and see the architectural and artistic treasures. Autumn is the ideal period to visit the numberless villages and historical towns, to walk in the charming autumn woods, and to rest and get the last tintarella, enjoying the warm sun, in your beautiful terrace overlooking the spectacular Apuan Alps. A wide choice of local specialities are offered in this period by the local restaurants and osterie, and can also be savoured during the various country celebrations in the nearby villages. In mild weather, you can easily reach from Tripala the Tirrenian sea beaches and villages, to enjoy long peaceful walks (i.e. Cinque Terre trekking path) and excellent Tuscanian and Ligurian fish cooking, out of the crowds of the high season! The closest bank, gas station and pharmacy are in Casola in Lunigiana (6 km from Tripala).
