“Outstanding property and location”
Reviewed 23 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed with our two small children in the property for two weeks in early Summer 2017. We quite simply could not fault it. The house was stunning (the photos online are a very good reflection; if anything, they did not capture how amazing it was). It had been renovated to a very high standard which was authentically Italian whilst also being contemporary and extremely well equipped. All the home comforts were there. The pool was large and very clean. The surroundings were breathtaking: mountains and greenery as far as you could see, with the odd tiny mountainside ancient Italian village in the distance. There was a lot of local wildlife to watch whilst sat in the gardens (we saw deer, birds of prey, fox cubs but the best was the nightime fire fly display - the whole garden lit up at night with twinkling lights). A big plus for us was the climate; hot and sunny in the day but cool and comfortable at night because of the mountain location. The surroundings were great too - very quiet and private, yet a walk away from beautiful Castelnuovo down the mountain, and even closer to a truly fabulous Trattoria (only five minute walk) up the mountain for great food. On the days we were able to tear the children away from the pool and grounds, we went on trips to the local beaches (about an hours drive over stunning mountains), the fantastic city of Lucca and my favourite was the local ancient walled town of Barga. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The local people we met were, too. This holiday and La Capanna del Pastore far exceeded our expectations (which were high in the first place!). Thoroughly recommended.

La Capanna del Pastore is a lovely villa with great facilities, lovely furnishings and plenty of room for a big family. The upstairs layout is open plan with easy access to the outside areas, and the bedrooms (all with their own bathroom) are downstairs so they stay cool in the August heat.The house is in great condition and was clean on arrival and service halfway through our 2 week stay. There is loads of space outside for the kids to play and the fantastic infinity style swimming pool is a good size and is very clean and well maintained. We had regular visits from the owners who were full of ideas and useful information. There are lots of things to do in the Garfagnana region and the villa is near to Pisa & Lucca, with Siena and Florence close enough to visit in a day. The information pack was full of activities, sights and great restaurants, and the local food is fantastic. We would definitely come back agaimn and would recommend the villa to anyone.

“A beautiful well located property.”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The property was as described, very spacious, well furnished and equipped.
We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children, the layout was brilliant with easy access to the pool, a nice covered terrace to the front on which we enjoyed a few evenings watching the deer passing through the extensive grounds of the house. The location is a kilometre or so from Castelnuovo di Garafagnana, with easy driving access to the many small villages / castles / country parks / local supermarkets / restaurants and other attractions in this quiet corner of Tuscany. About 45 minutes drive to Lucca. The pool was large and well maintained. The owners (Lorretta & Benito) very welcoming and helpful.
