We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so it was important to have a good shelter! The cottage was perfect - terrific view and very cosy inside, with a log fire in the kitchen which made chilly evenings very snug indeed. It's a great spot and an ideal base for exploring the surrounding hills. Remote, away from it all feel, yet Lucca within easy striking distance. We hope to return.

The cottage is very comfortable, clean and cosy with everything you would need for a peaceful and relaxed holiday. The view from the cottage is breathtaking and even more dramatic due to the ever changing light on the mountains and villages below. We found the cottage to be a good base for walking ( you can go on great walks direct from the cottage) and exploring the beautiful villages and countryside nearby. We really enjoyed being able to have meals on the terrace and used the BBQ several times. Janet and Elliot were very kind and helpful throughout our stay and provided a wealth of local knowledge including local maps and walking guides. The nearby shops had everything we needed for cooking our own meals and everywhere we went the people were so friendly and helpful.

It is a few minutes walk from Barga, which is a beautiful old village with plenty of good restaurants. Lucca is a short drive away, and Florence close enough for a day trip, and there are lots of places to visit in the mountains of the beautiful Garfagnana. Leonardo and Daniella were very helpful but unobtrusive hosts. We would love to come back for another visit.
