The villa and facilities were perfect for us with stunning views across to Barga. The pool and huge outside space with fruits growing was great for us, perfect wifi (for when it was too hot to sit out!) with fast speeds the pizza oven and barbecue facilities perfect. Amadeo and Paola were the perfect hosts, being close by for anything needed very welcoming to enjoy “a drop” with them, but also leaving us to enjoy and relax in their beautiful villa. They also providing recommendations for dinner and even booked us a table at one of the local restaurants., along with recommendations for where to buy local wines at La Cantina del vino and getting my glasses fixed! Barga itself is beautiful with welcoming restaurants serving amazing local produce. The location is perfect for a day in Pisa, and Lucca which is a fabulous place. Overall an absolutely perfect holiday, we drove ourselves taking in some lovely places along the way. You do need a car, and yes the final approach is steep but perfectly passable in any normal family car, stock-up on groceries at the supermarket 20 minutes away drive up the hill and relax! We will be back to sample more wonderful Tuscan hospitality!

One might think the last week in October would be cold, but whilst the nights come in around 1830, it's still warm enough to sit on the terrace and enjoy a glass of the local Tuscana Red. The house is beautifully equipped and laid out, and is more like staying in a home rather than a rental. everything is at hand, and we wanted for nothing. Lucca is only 20 minutes away and well worth a visit, but it's a difficult decision to go, or to sit in the tranquil gardens with a good book enjoying the spectacular views. The Simply Market in Monsagrati has everything you will need food and drink wise, but if you need a bigger selection, Carrefour in Lucca is not far away. We didn't attempt to start the bread oven, but did manage a couple of barbeques including the must try Fiorentina steaks. In summary, a Tuscan home from home that we have every intention of returning to.

Beautiful views all around and an incredible restaurant only 15 minutes walk down the hill in the next village. A perfect getaway for two!
