NB The owners live in the apartment downstairs, but they have their own private driveway, entrance and outdoor areas and fully respect the privacy of guests who has exclusive use of gardens and pool (except when being tended). Indeed, since the house is built into a slope it feels as though this is in fact a detached house all to yourselves, since one cannot even see owner's accommodation. The only shared facility is the laundry which the owners only use at night since they work all day if they are around, but most of the time they stay in their house in Lucca. The owners speak fluent English so can help with anything you may need, but still be unobtrusive and ensure you are not disturbed! Some of the land is terraced so may not be suitable for toddlers/very small children.

The Tuscany region
The Tuscan Region of Italy is well known for its warm balmy summers, beautiful countryside, rolling hills, mouth - watering food, and of course its towns and villages, rich with mediaeval architecture…
The Garfagnana region of Tuscany, often known as its 'Green Lung' is situated away from the milling crowds that can often be found at the most famous Tuscan locations and is totally unspoilt, remaining untouched by tourism.
The scenery is spectacular, green and mountainous with views of both the Apuane and Appenine mountains at every turn…And, due to the altitude whilst the weather can be very hot, it is always pleasantly cool for sleeping…
The food is usually home made, using home grown produce, and is typically simple and extremely tasty. Prices here remain very reasonable due to the fact that food is prepared with the locals, and not tourists in mind…The local wine is cheap and surprisingly drinkable!
The pace of life is slow and peaceful – spend your days enjoying secluded picnics, swimming in rivers, or watching locals play bocce or 'cheese throwing'. Visit hundreds of ancient hill top villages, or relax at home basking in stunning scenery.
For 'townie' days, visit the mediaeval towns of Barga, Lucca, Castelnuovo, with Pisa and Florence within easy reach too…
