Comfortable, well maintained property, excellent hosts
The house we rented was called ' Mondolata' and was as shown in the photographs, clean and comfortable. Their guests needs had been thought of with a welcome basket of basic food items, washing up needs and even rubbish bags. When travelling from offshore things like this are appreciated ! The garden was wonderful, and we enjoyed eating our meals on the covered patio. Carlo gave us all the information, advice and literature we needed to get the most out of our stay in the Garfagnana area. Gallicano was an excellent location from which to explore the area and also visit Lucca and The Cinque Terra. We did manage to relax by the pool for a short time. Thank you Carlo and Paola for making our visit so memorable.
Thanks to Pamela and Robert for choosing our property. They are perfect guests every host would like to welcome: respectful and educated. They maintained the house very clean and tidy. thanks again. Paola, Carlo and family
Fantastic stay in a beautiful part of Italy
My wife and I stayed in Limonaia for 6 nights in July this year. We cannot recommend this place enough. From the beautiful area of Gallicano and nearby Barga, to the immaculate villas at B&B Il Melograno to the friendly and welcoming proprietors, Paola, Carlo and the whole family - who couldn't do enough for us, this was a fantastic stay. Ideally located for trips into Lucca, Pisa and Florence as well as many of the quieter and less "touristy" areas in the region this was perfect.
As I mention above, Carlo and his family were extremely welcoming and never hesitated to recommend places to go and things to see and we were treated to fresh fruit and veg from their very own self sufficient allotment and fruit plants.
Such a perfect stay!
Thank you very much for your beautiful review, especially for sharing your beautiful sensations lived during you stay in our Villa. We cannot express enough the pleasure we feel reading your words and our gratification for choosing our property. Thank you again.
Looking forward to meet you again,
Paola & family
Einfach zum Wohlfühlen
Wir haben Mitte Mai eine Woche im Ferienhäuschen „Melograno“ verbracht und uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt. Die gesamte Anlage mit Swimmingpool und Garten ist sehr gepflegt und ruhig gelegen. Das Ferienhäuschen ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und alles ist sauber und in einem guten Zustand. An Ausstattung haben wir nichts vermisst. Zu dem Ferienhäuschen gehört eine eigene mit einem schönen Pavillon überdachte Terrasse.
Das Häuschen ist mit einer Klimaanlage und Heizung ausgestattet. Beides haben wir jedoch nicht benötigt.
Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und gastfreundlich. Stets hatten Sie ein offenes Ohr für unsere Wünsche. Zudem gaben Sie uns guten Anregungen und Tipps für lohnende Ziele in der Umgebung.
Gallicano an sich ist nicht sehr groß, hat jedoch einen guten Supermarkt in der Nähe, in dem alles für den täglichen Bedarf vorhanden ist. Der Ort ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt um schnell in alle Richtungen zu gelangen. Gut erreichbar sind viele schöne und interessante Wanderungen in schattigen Laubwäldern, die Wanderungen auch an heißen Tagen erträglich machen.
We are grateful for your stay in our property; perfect guests: nice, educated and respectful. Thanks for your holiday in our home and for the beautiful review! Paola and family
Bij aankomst werden wij vriendelijk begroet, kregen wij de sleutel van ons kleine huisje. We hebben heerlijk kunnen zwemmen in het kraakheldere zwembad.
Thank you very much for your stay, you are a lovely couple! We have been happy to welcome you! Thanks also for the cleaning of the accomodation! Paola and family
Sehr schönes Anwesen in der Garfangna!
Ein wirklich sehr schönes Anwesen mit mehreren Ferienhäusern auf einem Anwesen! Die Vermieter sind sehr nette Menschen, die auch mit auf dem Anwesen wohnen. Die ganze Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und auch der Pool ist schön. Man kann sich dort sehr gut entspannen. Es ist trotz der anderen Gäste nie zu voll und man hat genug Privatsphäre.
Unser Ferienhaus war sauber und ordentlich. Das Internet hatte eine gute Signalqualität und man konnte auch Videos schauen. Insgesamt ist die Gegend sehr gut für Wanderungen geeignet. Gallicano selbst ist nicht besonders sehenswert, aber andere schöne Orte wie Sillico, Forrtezza de Verrucule oder die Städte Florenz, Pisa oder Lucca sind gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen. EIn Auto ist sehr empfehlenswert.
Insgesamt ein sehr schöner Urlaub in einem tollen Quartier!
Thanks, thanks, thanks! We are happy for your stay, reading your review we know better you appreciated our property and our Valley! You visited a lot so your words are so important for new guest. It was a pleasure to welcome you, waiting for another holiday in Garfagnana, thanks again Paola and family
Superbe endroit, belle maison ,
Endroit propre et bien tenu
Le seul point négatif est le matelas qui est très mauvais
Pour le reste c'était parfait
