A Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We visited the Arnaldo and family,( I say visitited because we were made to feel part of the family) in August 2007. Wonderful hosts, very comfortable accommodation and a fantastic location. The peace and quiet of the garden/orchard was amazing ,especially in the early evening as the sun was setting behind the mountains(big hills but felt like mountains when we walked up to small village behind Giardinetto). If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing and friendly holiday look no further.

Arnaldo and Family, Thank you for a fantastic time and the Boar stew on our last night was something special.

We had a wonderful stay at the property of Daniela Bonari. She and her family gave us a great week. Nice people. It is a very good play to bike, you can bike a whole week in different directions. We recommend this property to everybody.

Great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in Arnaldo's beautifully restored Tuscan home for 2 weeks in August 2011. It is nestled in the mountainous area of Bagni di Lucca (LIma Valley) which is not clear from the photographs and shouldn't be missed. The property is furnished comfortably and could sleep easily 6 people. The garden is beautiful and we spent many an afternoon and evening relaxing in the cool shade of the fig trees (the figs and the lovely tomatoes that Daniella grew and gave to us were delicious by the way). The village of Giardenetto is small but has a great grocery store where we bought our fresh bread daily, it was superb.

There is a magnificent river 5 minutes walk from the property that we visited regularly and swam in it's cool waters in the hot afternoons. Brilliant place to picnic, relax and cool down.

It is a perfect base for travelling to Florence, Pisa and Lucca.

The restaurant in Vico (a local mountain top village) is not to be missed for its' hospitality, delicious local food (like wild boar pasta) and in the evening the marvellous mountain views that were illuminated by a sky full of stars.

Most importantly, Arnaldo and his family welcomed us and even helped us out when our car played up, thank you Arnaldo. Thank you Daniella and Grazianno for inviting us to a lovely bbq with your friends it was marvellous and made our first day perfect.

If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday with or without kids then this is the place.

A warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

Very much a last minute booking for our family, from our first contact Arnoldo was incredibly helpful. We arrived in the evening on a national holiday when every shop was closed and Arnoldo took us to the local grocer who opened up especially so that we could get some provisions. The grocer is also the local baker and supplies all the nearby villages.

The property is exactly as described and served as a great base for exploring the villages and towns of Garfagnana, or for simply relaxing in the orchard. We enjoyed peaceful breakfasts in the cool clear morning air and long late dinners in dusky warm evenings. Our children made friends with Arnaldo's grand daughter and her friends.

The swimming pool is welcome, but for us, the fantastic wild swimming in the Lima river about 400m from the house was the best we'd ever experienced and certainly stopped us wanting to get to the coast. With safe shallow pools, deep diving pools, fish, frogs and shade to picnic in along with stunning mountain views, afternoons spent at the river were heavenly.

We truly did not want to leave and are especially grateful to Arnaldo and his family for their warmth and welcome.

Calme et douceur de vivre !

  • 5 of 5

Quel bonheur de trouver des gens aussi sympathiques en vacances ! Très agréable maison pour se ressourcer et prendre le temps de vivre sans stress. Une belle vallée boisée offrant en permanence un petit souffle d'air de manière à ne pas être incommodé par la chaleur, un bon verre de vin sur la terrasse : que demander de plus ? Revenir ! Et apprécier à nouveau la gentillesse de Daniela, Graziano et Arnaldo, le propriétaire, tous attentifs à ce que votre séjour se passe bien. Merci pour ce moment agréable ...

Hugues, Eléonore et Antoine.

Other Activities: SPA facilities in Bagni di Lucca (10 Km)

Golf: Golf Club located in Vicopelago - Lucca (30 km)

Ski: The apartment is near Abetone winter ski resort which is well known all over Italy and virtually unknown in the UK. Abetone is 1400 metres above the sea level, near the border between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna; it is set in a splendid National forest. You can appreciate the place even in summer, with its numerous hill walks. The highest point is Monte Gomito at 1940m. Ski runs are available in four picturesque valleys: Luce, Sestaione, Lima and Scoltenna. There are numerous ski facilities: 1 cable car, 11 chair lifts (3 fast), 15 ski-lifts, 37 ski slopes, 5 ski schools, 2 cross-country slopes and 20 kilometres of ski slopes are covered by artificial snow-making ensuring skiing. This creates an extensive network of mixed-ability pistes above and below the tree-line. This resort gets very busy at the weekends because it is so close to Florence however during weekdays it can be very pleasant.
