Agriturismo Tripala, in beautiful Northern Tuscany, has a total of four apartments which have between one and three bedrooms and sleep between two and six people.

Heated pool (open from 1st May up to 15th October)

In total, we have 20 beds available and can offer a group booking if required – details about the largest apartment are below (this is typical accommodation at Tripala) and further information regarding the other three apartments is available on request.

All four apartments (one has one bedroom, two apartments have two bedrooms and one has three bedrooms) have breathtaking views of the mountains and historic hilltop villages. We have a heated swimming pool, which is only for guests of Agriturismo Tripala (15mt x 6mt) and is open from the middle of May to the end of September.

The pool has a glorious backdrop of stunning mountain views and is set in the tranquil gardens of Tripala, with sunbeds, deckchairs, tables and garden parasols. For children, there is a small play area and a table tennis table.

All linen is provided other than towels for the pool, which you will need to bring yourself.

Agriturismo Tripala is a countryside oasis ideal for family holidays. You can relax by the swimming pool, sunbathe in the garden or go mountain biking or walking in the spectacular Apuan Alps.

Situated in the Garfagnana, Agriturismo Tripala is an ideal base if you want to visit the historic towns of Tuscany, including Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Genoa. The coast is only a short journey by car or train so you can explore the beautiful fishing villages of the famous Cinque Terre, Lerici and Porto Venere 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.

Why Owner chose Province of Lucca

You can be sure of a very warm and friendly Italian welcome to our family home, to enjoy a taste of real Italy and in particular the Garfagnana and its local traditions and foods. It is ideal for a quiet and relaxing holiday away from crowds and tourists. We invite you to "tastings" at the farm when we cook local home made food twice a week...Carlo is also a good chef !

Our hosts gave us a warm welcome. We found this apartment bright, clean and nicely decorated. It was well stocked and equipped with everything our big family needed, maybe even more .We all enjoyed the pool, which was meticulously maintained. The panoramic views of the mountains, coupled with the private, tranquil surroundings made this the perfect place for much needed quiet retreat. I was a treat to not be right in the middle of all of the "typical tourist destination chaos". BUT, that being said, it was just a short distance to travel to famous cities like Pisa and Lucca, or the coast. We enjoyed our shared evening meals, with delicious homemade Italian cuisine, and lots of interesting conversation. We were able to learn a lot about their style of living, in this particular part of Italy. Great vacations always end too quickly ! Thank You to Silvia and Carlo, for everything!!! We will be back again, one day !!!

                                                                  Tranquil rural retreat

                                                                  NadineWales

                                                                  We spent an enjoyable 6 nights in Piano West with our daughter and her boyfriend. Beautiful Alpine views from the house, patio and pool. Lovely setting in quiet unspoilt area. Carlo and Sylvia were wonderful hosts. They wined and dined us for 2 of our evenings. Car essential, roads not for the faint hearted! 20 min walk up steep path to Metra quite challenging but worth it for the local dairy selling cheeses and salamis. Generally not a touristy area with little English spoken but Carlo and Sylvia would gladly intercede. Wonderful meal in La Spina Fiorito. 1.5 hr drive to Cinque Terra and Lucca - both well worth a visit for a day each.

                                                                  Location

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).
