So much I wanted to say about this place and can’t do it justice all in one review!
The house is laid out perfectly, two single beds in a shared room for my boys and a double bedroom for us with a mountain view from the bed! Very scenic and beautiful.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Even some Limoncello to sample! There is a dish washer but we preferred to wash by hand. The added bonus is that there is a washing machine. I shall know to pack lighter on our next visit!
The bathroom is lovely and has a shower-youngest son dislikes showers but we got him in it and actually liked it.
Being end of season holiday in October the weather was particularly stormy and Italy was experiencing floods and storm damage in areas, it didn’t put us off. It was warm but wet some days. A waterproof and umbrella is all that’s needed. We wore light layers so we could put on or take off when needed.
Coming home to the Villa most evenings in the dark there was sufficient lighting and the warmth of central heating. I would recommend taking a pair of slippers so you don’t get cold feet on the beautiful Italian floors too.
I cannot recommend Carlo, Anna and the Villa enough. We shall be back to explore more of what Italy has to offer and do more locally too.
The apartment we stayed in was very comfortable and well equipped, with a pretty, private, outdoor eating space as well as the beautiful pool and garden area. It’s all very well kept and tranquil too. The location is perfect for sightseeing - Lucca and Barga are fascinating and just a short drive away - and convenient for shops and some great restaurants. The hosts are wonderfully helpful and made us (2 adults and a 3-month old) feel incredibly welcome. We hope to return soon. We also now have a new nickname for our son! Thank you Carlo, Loretta and Paola x
