After a relaxing and scenic train trip from Lucca we were only a ten minute drive from this idyllic Tuscan villa. Our first glimpse of the views over the valley was truly breathtaking.
This villa is the perfect place to experience a real taste of Tuscany. There are many places to explore without travelling too far- villages, markets, shops and restaurants. The other option is to just stay and relax at the villa and enjoy the view and time by the pool. We did both in our four night stay. We certainly left wanting more!!!
The accommodation is extremely comfortable and well set up.
This was our first trip to " The Wild Boars" , hopefully not our last!!
We have just had a wonderful stay at the charming rustic Wild Boars Villa with its incredible view over the valley, town and fort of Castiglione di Garfagnana. Wild Boars is spacious and well equipped with everything you need for your holiday. It is a place to wind down from the fast pace of city life and enjoy the nature and attractive towns and villages of the area. It is an easy train ride to Lucca where we lunched inexpensively in the ancient amphitheatre area, took advantage of the tasteful shopping and immersed ourselves in the atmosphere of this lovely traditional town. Overall our holiday staying at Wild Boars Villa was a good balance between relaxation, exploration, sampling the local food and wine and savouring the history of this authentic part of Italy. I highly recommend Wild Boars Villa and I am looking forward to my next visit.
The view from the villa is breath taking. With our total of 13 people staying in both the studio and villa both are large and spacious enough to comfortably accommodate us all. The property and villa also allowed us do be able to have our own privacy, whether inside or outside, on the patios, under the gazebo or around the pool. All areas take in the wonderful panoramic view.
The Location is in the Tuscany Hills as well as not far from towns and villages which made our daily touring a pleasure. If you want to visit Italy, Tuscany without all the tourists and experience authentic Italian living in the country then this is the villa for you. I look forward to returning again.
We had the most outstanding week here. We esoecially loved that there were not many tourists and we got to go to places the locals go.
Stunning view , small village.
Definitely recommend this
What a perfect way to top my European travels! A week relaxing by the pool and nightly visits to various villages as they celebrated their towns and gathered for a meal, dancing and local flavor. Shopping in nearby Castlenuovo was a success! Topped with espresso on the piazza. Then on to a magnificent 4 four course luncheon in the village of Corfino. The Villa location, nestled in the Tuscan hills, is warm and bright by day and cool and fresh at night making for perfect dreams. This is the spot if you want to bustle about all the villages and nearby Tuscan towns, tasting the unique culture and cuisine or if you prefer, to enjoy a good book relax by the pool sipping your favorite refreshing beverage. I can't wait to return! I encourage you to pay a visit!
