“wow - paradise”
Reviewed 1 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Unbelievable .. where do you start on describing this place ! .. this is the best villa we have ever taken, so good we have already booked it for next year. its very close to heaven, the house is a very usable format for a big family or two families. The kitchen is the best equipped we have ever come across in the last 10 years. We have stayed all over Tuscany from vine yards just outside Sienna, Greve and around the north of Florence, north Tuscany is less crowded, greener and Luca is brilliant (as seen on Top Gear)

Enjoy the tranquility, we were lucky enough to be there during the heatwave in July 2017, we enjoyed 37-38C most days but being on a mountain, there was a lovely breeze just enough to make sleeping comfortable.

The pool has a dark liner, which means it gets warmer and has a salt water cleaning system so no nasty chemicals.

The BBQ and Pizza oven work well, we enjoyed a few nights on the lower garden. You can buy pizza dough in the supermarket,so just a case of "man build fire", roll out the dough and add some toppings!

You need to take it easy getting there, the roads are small and twisty .. takes about 15-20 mins from Garfagnana, and there's not many shops nearby so you need to stock up. This is the place where you arrive, chill and leave totally revived, having read many books, or the reasonably good internet access (over wifi) its not really somewhere you use as a base to explore. Easily accessible with a regular car, the parking is good.

“Overwelmed with the view and the peace and quit of this house.”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

If you are looking for peace and quit in a beautifull environment, than this house is ideal.
The owners are very helpful and daughter Sylvia knows English what is always helpful if your Italian doesn't go much further than "bon jorno".
The distance to the nearest bigger towns (Lucca, Pisa) shouldn't be underestimated, but still feasible for a daytrip.
The cycling is heavier then expected with quite challenging climbs.
Tip: the bakery in Carregine (10 minutes drive) offers baguettes even better than in France and you should try the salty Manninna.
We will return to this beautiful place.

“Fantastic hideaway”
Reviewed 23 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

High in the mountains, with great views. Peaceful and quite, although a little remote. 15 minutes in great restaurant and small town. Lovely property very comfortable, helpful owner who gave us some wine from his own vineyard. The pool was great.
