ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 3 wonderful days in this charming villa! I wish we had spent more! Alan and Barbara were incredible! They went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable and went out of their way to help us during our stay. They recommended activities and restaurants. The apartment was stocked with everything you need in the way of tourist information on the area and entertainment. It was a wonderful, relaxing break from the crowds in the big cities. I recommend doing the Strada del Vino in Montecarlo (recommended by our hosts). It was phenomenal!

Thank you Alan and Barbara for everything :) We truly appreciate it.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN THE MOUNTAINS

  • 5 out of 5
This propery was absolutely lovely. It was clean and beautiful and in a stunning setting in the mountains. The couple who own it also live there and were helpful and available. there was ample room for 6 people. The beach was about 1 and a half hours away but we chose to visit it most days. The main town is about 20 minutes away and is fantastic and picturesque with plenty of local shops and eating places. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending this for a superb holiday, I wished that I could have done more walking but I was with young family so it was not possible but there were some stunning walks within walking distance. a car is essential .

The village of Giardinetto is 10km north of the historic, pretty thermal spa town of Bagni di Lucca, with its restaurants, shops, bars, swimming pools, tennis courts and riverside walks.The villa is located in the river Lima valley surrounding Appenine mountain peaks reaching over 2000 metres and very close to the Garfagnana region both excellent Alpine Club walking areas.The ski resort of Abetone is a mere 22 kms away. There is an excellent choice for 'day trips' including the walled city of Lucca (32km), the magic of Florence (Firenze 70 km), Pisa and its leaning tower (52km) , the ancient city of Barga (25km), Strada del Vino (25km), Mediterranean coast (45km), Puccini opera,Apuane Alps and Caves(35km), Nature reserves (12km). Siena, San Gimignano,the Chianti region , the Cinque Terre and much more

Staying locally why not explore the mountain/riverside villages and enjoy good value friendly dining out. There is a bar/pizzeria and a grocery store close to the house and regionally acclaimed restaurants nearby.

Other Activities: Quadbiking. Forest, mountain and riverside walks

Golf: GOLF IN TUSCANY

There are approximately 20 golf courses to choose from in the region. The nearest are at Montecatini Terme and in the Garfagnana valley, around 1 hour by car from the villa

Ski: ABETONE SKIING IN TUSCANY ONLY 30 MINUTES AWAY

The second largest ski/snowboarding resort in Italy is a mere 22km away at Abetone. The resort extends over 4 beautiful valleys and has over 80km of ski slopes, some reaching 1900 metres above sea level.

Outside of the skiing season this area is very popular with walkers/visitors enjoying the spectacular mountain scenery and experiencing the Alpine Club of Italy walkways.
