The location on an altitude of approximately 550m, grants a not too warm climate in the summertime (the temperature during the night is almost alsways not higher then 18C°. The property is an excellent destination for a relaxing holiday and visit the Garfagnana area with it charming villages, great scenic drives, walking-hiking (we suggest in the Orecchiella Natural Park) and other outdoor activities. It’s at the same time a good starting point to visit Pisa, Lucca and for a day at sea (the Versilia Riviera is 60 kms away).

Lovely house with nice views.

  • 4 of 5

The house is big and well furnished. Has a nice backyard and great views. Our problem was finding it. When we would do google map , it would drive us to the same street in another village. We got lost a few times. The road to the house is a winding mountain road that takes over an hour after getting off highway. Very far from Florence and other Tuscan towns. About 3 hours from Florence and longer from Siena and other Tuscan towns. However very good for walking. A walking path right in front can go for a long time and is scenic . TV has no English Chanels and DVD player does not connect to TV. No screens on the windows, so bugs come in if you open the window. not more than one person can shower at any given time , water pressure gets very low..

Brilliant Villa with spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was extrnemely spacious with each room having an en suite as a luxury. The outside garden and pool area were fantastic and the panorama views looking out into the mountains was an added bonus. We had such a wonderful week and would dedinitely make a return visit. A great find.

Away from it all.

  • 4 of 5

Arrival instructions were clear and worked well.

One observation was that the lady who took our deposit had little English & we had basically no Italian. Thankfully her son Matteo was around and helped explain where we could park.

I was surprised that there were no suggestions as to where to shop, eat etc as is normally provided. Matteo did text me some restaurants one of which we visited twice, Il Pozzo in Pieve Fosciana.

The Villa has a large garden and a great pool, with plenty of space within.

It is rather remote with Lucca around an hour away (this is the nearest large town). There are plenty of hairpins to deal with up and down the hills to get to the Villa.

Rather disappointed with glasses available. There was ONE wine glass and one tumbler available (for 8 people) there were a number of smaller glasses, but quite a mismatch.

We enjoyed our stay but would probably look for a Villa nearer to larger towns due to the travel time taken each day.

Owner's Response: Hello Ian, Thanks for the feedback, I have already asked Matteo to check the number of wine glasses (...it's not easy to check all as there are often clients departing/arriving in the same day) Best regards Guido

Lovely traditional Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great property, well equipped....traditional calming style. Lovely views from all windows. Children loved the pool, as did the adults. Perfect location for getting away from it all whilst being near many cultural and natural attractions.

THE GARFAGNANA AREA

Someone has called the green island of Tuscany and in fact this valley, but close to important historical towns such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the flamboyant and fashionable Versilia, was closed in itself, living its own history and building a strong identity that still retains. From Garfagnana you can easily reach famous historical centers as Lucca, Pisa and Firenze, as well as the sparkler Riviera della Versilia, La Spezia and le Cinque Terre. Closer, almost a unique part with Valley, Lunigiana, with its castles, Serchio Media Valley, that with its Devil's Bridge (Ponte del Diavolo) in Borgo a Mozzano let start the geographical entrance to the Lucca province mountain area, we share with Alta Versilia a good part of our mountain chain. The Apuan Alps, which divide to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Apennine Mountains to the east, enclosing the valley like a casket. Garfagnana, literally Great Forest, so this valley seemed to its first visitors and even today you will be astonished in front of the extension of its lush forests. Man-planted, cared for and cultivated the chestnut up to 1000 meters above sea level, wild, intricate, finally the beech which go up, over 1700 meters and, year after year, trying to regain the heights of mountains nude.In this immense mass of green appear, almost suddenly, perched on a hill, perched on the high plains that slope towards the river, overhanging on vertiginous cliffs, the many small towns that characterize the Valley. Ruts in the narrow streets, inside the medieval defensive walls, time passes slowly, the rhythms are those of the past, the games of boys the same for centuries, the "workshops" have an antique perfume. the Valley is a real invitation to enjoy a relaxing holiday, relax on the edge of a swimming pool or lying on a fragrant meadow of "pepolino" (wild thyme), silently listening to the sounds of nature that surrounds us. Let yourself be enthralled by this goslow, it will be easy to discover hidden corners of the Valley which offer entirely different aspects to the change of the seasons: the footpath, landscape, Woods, colours every time will be for you a new emotion.
