Beautiful character property. Peaceful quiet location in The Garfagnana area of Tuscany.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Casa Eli. This property is very comfortable and spacious , recently refurbished with a lovely swimming pool.

You will need to have a car and the driver needs to be experienced as the house is located at the end of a fairly steep track , uneven in places .but once mastered is ok . We walked to the nearby village of Pieve Fosciana a sleepy hamlet which has a good restaurant and ice cream parlour and butcher , a deli and greengrocers and a bakery. Also nearby are 2 supermarkets . Bellisimo.

A fantastic tranquil holiday

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, by far the best holiday we have had. A beautiful villa in fantastic countryside, spotlessly clean. We loved the walk across the river to the small town of Piave, so friendly,

The owners are very nice and are very helpful

A fantastic get away with lovely pool !

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean & tidy on arrival, the area is so peaceful & relaxing. The pool is fantastic and gardens are lovely. There is a lot of room for the kids to play games on the very large grass areas away from the pool. We met the owners Loriana and Alessandro on days when cleaning house and pool are done. They are really friendly and helpful people. I highly recommend this villa if you are after a lovely, spacious villa with great pool and outdoor space.

Spacious villa in a great secluded location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 week holiday in this spacious villa that's in a secluded location, but still close to a town with amenities. We loved the pool and the pizza oven.

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa and grounds are quite stunning, this will be our second visit to this villa, the pool has been recently moved and is a great sun spot if your looking for a tan. Also good as we can sit on the veranda and let the kids have a good splash about without the worry (The picture here - the pool is now directly in front of the veranda). The area itself is very quite and almost tranquil. We even had some wild dear come in the garden - Fantastic! (when I say the garden, it was within the grounds way up by the trees, but still an awesome sight at dusk!!) There is a stream to the rear of the property which we took the kids down, they loved it!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Casa Eli was just Perfect. All of us (3 adults) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The peace and complete privacy were wonderful.

The house itself was spotlessly clean and comfortable and spacious. The pool and spacious surroundings were great. The only sounds were that of the river and wildlife.

Location was ideal for travelling to places such as Lucca, Barga, Pisa and Florence.

We will certainly return to Casa Eli.

Car: recommended

Situated in extensive grounds, bordered by a stream at the bottom, with views of open countryside and mountains beyond, this is a peaceful retreat

Despite the peace and privacy the site is less than a 10 minute walk cross country to the village of Pieve Fosciana with the following facilities

Two restaurants - one of which is regarded to be the best in the area, but very well priced!

Bars

Shops, including a delicatessen selling scrumptious home made Italian hot food to take away - with a menu that is changed daily

Supermarket

Banks

The market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana is only a 5 minute drive away too, with its bars, restaurants, shops, famous Thursday morning market, and train station for easy exploring.

Lucca is less than a one hour drive away, Barga is 20 minutes, Florence 90 minutes, Pisa 1 hr 15 minutes.

This property is well located for both relaxing and exploring, with the rare benefit of being within walking distance of a restaurant...
