We had a fabulous week enjoying the accommodation and hospitality provided by Helen and Stuart - friendly but never intrusive. Loved the apartment and the area. Lots of places to visit in easy reach but no need to leave the valley if tranquility is what you want. The view really is as good as it looks in the photos: the apartment is even better! Perfect place to unwind.
We spent the last four days of our holiday here and were delighted to discover a real gem. Kathy and Paul made us so welcome and supplied a really generous hamper which meant we could have a long lazy breakfast on our first morning, sitting on the wonderful private terrace looking at the mountains and listening to birdsong. Heaven.
The apartment is beautifully finished with quality furnishings (the most comfortable bed we had in Italy!), excellent kitchen equipment and a really good shower in the stylish bathroom. Outside were two very comfortable loungers, table and chairs, bbq, and herbs and salad to pick. They’ve really thought of everything here!
The olive trees were fantastic and the woodland with its stream was a good place to explore (listen out for the wild boar snuffling around at night on the other side of the fence!). Everything is so well kept.
Kathy and Paul were really friendly and on hand should we have needed anything but they took great care to ensure we had our own space and privacy. Having moved here a few years ago they were very knowledgable about attractions, locally and further afield, and kindly made a reservation for us at an excellent local restaurant.
The local town has two very good supermarkets and all the necessary shops that you’d need. We enjoyed Lucca, about 40 mins drive away, with its many traffic free squares and side streets and interesting shops and restaurants. A walk or cycle round the amazing ramparts is a must.
A great base to explore this part of Tuscany, and equally easy to just stop, unwind and read whilst stretched out in the sunshine.
Thank you Kathy and Paul - we’ll definitely see you again next year.
