Perfect relaxing retreat

5 of 5
Il Turello is completely secluded offering the perfect relaxing holiday. It is situated on a wooded hillside giving great views of the valley below. The patio and pool area were a highlight, we spent a lot of time relaxing here. As well as a well equipped kitchen there is a wood fired pizza oven and BBQ's so you are never short of options if you don't want to go out to eat. Inside there is fireplace which we made use of on some of the colder September evenings. The whole property was clean and well maintained. Barga is close by offering a selection of restaurants and smaller shops. Slightly further away in Gallicano there is a large supermarket. As other reviews say the first drive up to Il Turello is a bit daunting, however you soon get used to it. We managed it in a fairly large automatic estate car in the rain without issue, a 4x4 is really not necessary. Our 10 days went by far too quickly and we would love to return if we get the chance.

Tuscan Idyll

5 of 5
Albiano is a village in the Garfagnana region of northern Tuscany, very close to Barga, ‘the most Scottish town in Italy’. Both are a slightly off the tourist track, with most visitors to the area having some ancestral connection with it. This is a pity, as it is one of the most spectacular and fascinating parts of Italy, with the locals friendly and welcoming, particularly to inglese (English speakers). For a family holiday with 2 or 3 kids, Albiano Casa Roc is the perfect place to stay. Casa Roc has pretty much everything you will need. Double and twin bedrooms upstairs, single downstairs, all with en suite. Spacious living room (with dining table), kitchen and covered patio area outside, perfect for breakfast. But best of all is the pool, with sun loungers, parasols and al fresco dining area. If your kids (like mine) love swimming, this will certainly make your holiday. Pool towels are provided. We did need to scrounge a fan for night time, although admittedly the ‘Lucifer’ heatwave was exceptional, even for Italy. Barga is walkable (although hard in the heat), but to make the most of what the area has to offer you will need a car. Shops are in Barga, with the gigantic Conad supermarket about 20 mins drive away. Eating out in Albiano means La Terrazza (4* on TripAdvisor), rustic and family-run. However, there is alot more choice if you drive. We visit Albiano regularly, principally to visit family and friends. From now on, Casa Roc will now be our first choice when it comes to finding somewhere to stay.
