Excellent in the mountains, totally relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property is remote up a rough track and excellent if you want to get away from it all, having said that there is good internet connection.

Loved the stunning views. The fireflies that came out at night time, buzzards nesting close by and we saw a deer.

Near to a station to go by rail to Luca and other places.

Also near to visitor attractions.

The owner very helpful, especially when we lost our key, he fitted a new one within an hour of our initial call.

We would highly recommend this property for a relaxing getaway.

Il Paradiso is perfectly named.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay and we cannot wait to return. We loved the peace and quiet, the views, the mountain air, the stars and the fireflies, the hare, the wild strawberries and catching up on sleep! We loved being able to walk miles through the woods and come back to the pool and the beautifully equipped and maintained house, Thank you Daniele for sharing your lovely home and helping us * and thank you Lorraine for brilliant organisation. Next time we will come for longer and do some more exploring and definitely go back to Castiglione di Garfagnana and not just for the amazing food in Osteria Leonie.

*We had a puncture and Daniele very very kindly sorted it all out for us.

AMAZING!!! An absolute must!

  • 5 of 5

This I can very happily say is the BEST, MOST BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL and AMAZING place I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. All I can say is this property is perfect if your looking for a private, peaceful and relaxing get away. The property is located up in the mountains surrounded by woodland and beautiful views, if your lucky like we were you will get to see the wild deer in the fields (I recommend downloading a app on your phone to attract them I did and it was amazing the local deers are Roe and fallow deer), there are all sorts of different birds as well. Daniele the owner of the property was a life saver, he helped me and my partner so much, he even took time out of his own day to take us to a car rental agency and to the airport. Then you have two of the most kind, helpful and brilliant people Fabrizio and Lorraine if it wasn't for these three people my holiday would of been ruined due to circumstances at the airport. They managed to find us a car (if you do choose to stay at this property you will need a car unless you choose to spend the whole time at the property) and even give me directions over the phone from England to the nearest town! I want to say a massive thanks to Daniele, Fabrizio and Lorraine for the help, kindness and patience they had with me and for making my holiday one I will never forget. Sonny and Billie

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are so happy that you had a great time despite the start at the airport. We agree this is a special and very unique location and that Daniele is a lovely host! So good to hear you appreciated the place as much as we do and that you saw some of the varied wildlife. We do hope to welcome you again, either here or to one of our other properties. Big hello from Daniele! Lorraine and Fabrizion at tuscan-retreats

Situated 1.6km (mainly down unmade roads) from an ancient traditional Italian mountain village which has a bar and shop, which is ideal for essentials and sitting with a drink taking in local life.

A real retreat reached through woodland, this large open and flat area surrounded by the mountains is a complete surprise!

The property is also less than a 10 minute drive from the larger village of Piazza al Serchio with all facilities including traditional shops, supermarket and Tuesday morning market when the small village really comes alive. There are also some bars, a couple of restaurants a river and a train station for easy exploring.

Whilst in the depths of the countryside, the house is well located for exploring the local market town of Catselnuovo which is a 20 minute or so drive, the gorgeous and popular mediaeval town of Barga which is a 35 minute drive and the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca which is say 1 hour and 10 minutes away. Pisa, with its leaning tower is a 90 minute drive, and one can visit Florence in 2 hours. The famous Wind Caves are a 45 minute drive.

Closer to home there are plenty of little historic villages to visit, many of which have local festas in the summer. There are also the lakes of Gramalazzo, Vagli (with its hidden village submerged by the water) and Pontecosi, and some guests love to swim in the river. The property is also ideally located for visiting the local Fortress at Verrucole which is a good afternoon out, with stunning views and some interactive activities for the children. Also close by is the Buffardello tree climbing and zip wire park (ideal for both adults and children of all ages with a variety of runs) where one can take a picnic and spend the entire day in the welcome shade of the forest.

The real beauty of this area is the dramatic mountain scenery, and the hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, endless picnicking opportunities, and the pure peace of a non touristy holiday ......

NB - approach road is unmade is bumpy in places going through woodland, and you need to be a confident country driver, but the owner will meet you and take you down to house for the first time so you can see best way to drive.
