The owners are extremely helpful and kind. Our whole family really enjoyed our stay. We were a party of 5, three 19-21 and two parents. The facilities were great and our hosts were very responsive. The local village pool is really well managed and clean. They open late on Wednsday from 2pm to 12 midnight. The local restaurant run the pool so if you want to eat at the local restaurant on Wednesday it will by the pool and you will need to pre book and order. The views are to die for. My youngest said "this is a view I could never tire of" and I have to agree. I would recommend a day trip to Lucca if you have time. I would also recommend a trip to the top of Barga to get the views and eat on the way down. I can seriously recommend this villa! Hope to visit again sometime soon.

I booked this house due to the location: walking distance to town, between Pisa/Lucca/Florence, and would allow the ability to have a home base while exploring Northern Tuscany. We arrived at the house, and basically never left. We did take short day trips to Barga, Castelnuovo and Lucca, but the views from the house were so stunning, the pool so lovely, and the house was so comfortable that we never felt the need to leave. Elisabetta is a wonderful host who was very welcoming and informative. The property was super easy to rent, and Andrew (the property manager) was very accommodating and easy to work with for booking.

The house is really great, and the owners, Paolo and Maria Cristina, who live just next to il Nido, really make you feel welcome ! The swimming pool is small but nice, and our children much enjoyed it ! The garden is very well maintained by Paolo, and is very pleasant. The area is superb, nature is preserved, and it is a pleasure to be in Tuscany while not seeing too many tourists. We visited Lucca (not far), Pisa, and even Cinque Terre. We hope we will get a chance to rent this house again !
