Il Nido was perfect. The facility was our home away from home. The bedrooms were cozy and the living space was open with wonderful views. The outdoors had breath taking scenery. The owners were gracious and very helpful. Il Nido was a great location for visiting northern Tuscany. We were there for the month with easy access to the train. My wife had an opportunity to paint a mural for the owner

We spent a wonderful week in Villa Il Nido in June 2016. The house was just perfect for 6 people.The garden was huge with a great view over the town. We enjoyed the pool and having afternoon coffee on the terrace.The house was located on peaceful hillside, not far away from town. The host family was very nice and friendly.

We had a great time at this villa and the facilities were excellent. Plenty of options for eating and sitting outside. The pool area was extremely relaxing with the water flowing into the pool. Ideal for walking into the town a bit harder walking back uphill!!! All in all a great place to stay.

We had wonderful holidays at Il Nido ! 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 !

Wonderful Garfagnana vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent 5 nights in Villa Il Nido at the end of October. The house was beautiful and spacious with an amazing view. Paolo was so helpful with providing suggestions for activities and sites to see in the local area. We walked to dinner in town and also used the local produce from the Thursday farmers market to cook for ourselves. We hiked in Orechiella park and up to the fort in town,toured the cave 'Grotta del Vento' and enjoyed walking around the village. A car is necessary for exploring the area. We could have spent more time here!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Il Nido was a beautiful villa - We stayed in Serendipity during the first week of October. The property surrounding the villa was beautiful, well-maintained and we had a spectacular view. The inside of the house was also very nice and was certainly very roomy, although we did only have 4 adults staying there. Paulo was an informative host and provided plenty of info on things to see and do in nearby towns. Castelnuovo was a very short (at most 5 minutes) drive away and you could even walk to town but the walk back involved going up a fairly steep hill. Still, it was definately worth being up where we were for the view and the peaceful setting. As far as location, I enjoyed being in Castelnuovo in that it was a little off the beaten path - there was still plenty to do close by and other larger cities were not too far away, although the only one we went to while there was Lucca - our original intent was to take it easy and just enjoy the outdoors and dining available to us in Tuscany, which we did. There were plenty of restaurants in Castelnuovo but we did try to get out and try a few in neighboring towns also. Overall, I would recommend the villa to anyone wishing to stay for a while in Tuscany and would love to return sometime.
