Beautiful house and setting

  • 5 out of 5
The place was beautiful, from the first moment we pulled into the drive we were blown away by the views. The house itself was well designed and a great size. it was only the four of us (2 children under 5!) so we did not use the basement at all, but the main house was perfect and beautifully architected, particuarly the beautiful pool area. The owners had made a real effort to ensure people felt at home, with plenty of lovely touches and decorations throughout the house. they even bought us some produce from the local market one day, as well as ensuring we had a bottle of delicous prosecco on arrival and being full of helpful tips. The most wonderful thing was that it was firefly season and baeautiful evenings were spend on the balcony with a glass of wine watching natures amazing lightshow over the gorgeous valley - perfect!. the local village was also just the right size with a few really good restaurants and an entertaining market day. We really enjoyed our stay here and woluld return, potentially with another family as well.

A great place for good friends to get together.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Orbaci for a week, we were 3 families each with 2 teenagers. The house was perfect for our reunion. It offered something for everybody. The foodie adults found a great kitchen totally kited out with everything you could imagine, the teenagers had the pool the pingpong table and games, the 1000 piece puzzle was even attempted. There were two lovely large tables one inside one outside for our lavish evening meals. The bedrooms were lovely with clean crisp sheets and soft towels. There was obviously a lot of thought and care put into making this property perfect. The other amazing point to mention about Orbaci is the location, incredible scenery, a lovely little town 5 minutes away and many other little villages to wonder around, a visit to Lucca is also a must.

Fantastic and relaxing

  • 5 out of 5
Our party was made up of 3 families and we all found it fantastic. The owners were great and very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The surroundings are amazing and we only left the villa 1 day to shop at the local market. Kids played all day in the pool, which is a great size, all 10 of us could fit in without getting in each others way. Rooms are everything you could wish for and the beds very comfortable, the whole villa is very comfortable. If your looking for a great social house with fantastic views which will enable you to relax and unwind this is the place for you. I would happily come back and enjoy all that the villa and town have to offer. Thank you Alan and Mel X.

A holiday that ended too soon.

  • 5 out of 5
Everything about this booking was dead on, the booking process, the villa itself, pool, the owners, the location. I cannot think of a single drawback. All at a reasonable price.

I highly recommend Tuscan Retreats and Allan and Mel, who own the Orbaci. I look forward to returning to their beautiful villa.

Fabulous holiday house, it ticked every box.

  • 5 out of 5
We were 2 families holidaying together. It was the perfect arrangement for us. The location of the house is wonderful, stunning views and within easy striking distance of great days out. Castelnuovo is a lovely town with a good selection of bars and restaurants. A meal at the Fortezza (Fortress) restaurant is a must. The property was clean, well equipped and the owners were helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this property.

Orbaci - great stay

  • 4 out of 5
‘Not many holiday properties can boast stunning mountain views, a refreshing pool and gorgeous gardens to enjoy by day. Still fewer can offer charmingly restored farmhouse interiors, a well equipped kitchen and a terrace lit up by fireflies at night. This made Orbaci a rustic haven in unspoilt Tuscany which I’d definitely recommend to any large group wanting a getaway.’

The villa/barn is situated in the heart of the Garfagnana, with stunning 360 views of the Appenines, Apuane Alps and the famous 'Uomo Morto'. Whilst ideal for a peaceful, rural away from it all holiday, this property offers the convenience of town too, with the famous market town of Castelnuovo less than a 5 minute drive away. Indeed the beautiful fortress, with commanding views over the valley and the mountains beyond, and noted for its classical music events, is 10 minutes on foot & here one will find a good quality restaurant serving excellent local food..

The town itself has a weekly market, bars, restaurants, shops, and train station for easy exploring.

Drive times are:

Castelnuovo 3 mins or so

Mediaeval town of Barga - 15 minutes

Lucca - 45 minutes

Pisa - 1 hour 15 minutes

Florence - 90 minutes

National Park of Orrechiella - 30 mins

Walking, horseriding, and picnic opportunities straight from the door!

Other Activities: skiing 20 min drive
