Overall we had a lovely time at the property, however the access is much more difficult than explained and I would certainly not recomend the property if you have young children as the nearest supermarket is at least 40 minutes drive away on a very tedious and bendy mountain road.
if however you are looking to get away from it all, and you want to have perfect peace and quiet then the location is ideal.
I would also suggest contacting the owner and making sure that all facilities noted are currently in good working order prior to your visit. The owners are easy to contact and very quick with replies and information.
We were just a little disappointed to not find everything as we had hoped for and as suggested on the website.

Tereglio, a tiny, ancient mountaintop village with stunning views across the Apennines, is close by (7 km) with 2 good restaurants & 2 small traditional bars. Viareggio, a fashionable Italian beach resort, is a comfortable drive away (50 km through beautiful wine country). The house is 70 km from Pisa with it's leaning tower, 90 km from Florence, an art lovers paradise and full of lovely shops & a very good outdoor market. La Spezia and Cingue Terre are 100km from house. Lucca is only 40 km away, with very sophisticated modern shops, restaurants & bars in an ancient walled city. You can rent a bike for 2.50 per hour & cycle around the city walls offering spectacular views of the city & the surrounding countryside. Abetone- mountain skiing resort is 40km from house by normal road and just 10km from house via mountain-pass. There are many other castles, bridges & places of interest too numerous to mention, suffice to say that there's plenty to explore.

To arrive the house you should drive 16km usual Italian winding mountain road with asfalth and the last 200m is local gravel road to the house, what goes sharp up. The house is accessible by any standart car except sport cars.

Other Activities: BBQ.
