What an amazing holiday we- a family group of 10- from 3yrs to grandparent- have just had in this beautiful area of Tuscany. Casa Barile is a wonderful, high spec, fully equipped property, with masses of space, loads of bathrooms (!) and a brilliant (warm!) pool. And the views are breathtaking.
I (we) cannot recommend highly enough. Ronnie has been extremely responsive and flexible, providing excellent recommendations and the house book is a mine of information. Thanks Ronnie!
Enjoy all! …
Costola, private pool, stunning mountain views. Chef on request.
large group (6 families) summer vacation
great and spacy place with many varying appartments some with great view. the new appartments (seprate house at the pool) are modern and great with large kitchen and nice bedrooms.
The pool, the table tennis and the pizza oven invite for group events and joint cooking. Many things to do in the shorter and wider surrounding (hicking, byciling, citiy tours). Silent and remote place which is great to relax but it takes always 1hr drive to get the the tourist places (Lucca, Beach, Massa, ....).
The host family was just fabulous introducing the history of the building, giving a tour to the church tower and allowing to harvest fresh tomatoes in the garden. Fortunately we had a friend with us who spoke italian. …
Vallecchia, large sunny private pool, WIFI, mountain views, walk to restaurant
Peace, tranquility and stunning views in Garfagnana
Our family have been regular visitors to Garfagnana for many years and this was our fourth stay at Cottage Vallecchia (Laura).
The cottage itself is fully self-contained on the ground floor and offers ample privacy from the cottage above. The inside living space, kitchen and bedrooms are all comfortable, spacious and well equipped although for us, the real highlight is the wonderful terrace and loggia from where the views are simply stunning.
On several occasions, our hosts arranged for Italian banquet or pizza nights provided by local chefs at very reasonable prices and prepared in the outdoor pizza oven. Again, these were a real highlight of our stay and a wonderful way to spend an evening being catered for in relaxed surroundings.
The pool is situated to slightly higher ground, surrounded by grape vines and also enjoys spectacular views across the valley below and up towards nearby Treppignana.
The area itself is generally very picturesque and has many nearby towns and villages to explore all with excellent good value local cuisine. …
Vallecchia Sotto, 5 bed villa, private pool, great views WIFI, free Tuscan meal
Beautiful property, Beautiful location
We travelled as a group of six and found the property to be perfect; hugely spacious, wonderfully located and the highlight was the locally cooked meal served on the balcony overlooking the mountains as the sun went down! Also ideally located to visit nearby cities, though we found a car crucial for this!
An all round great trip, and highly recommended property …
Rustico Te Kawa
Fabulous cozy villa with amazing views!
We visited with our 3 children, 15, 14 and 10 and had a fantastic time, The villa is lovely and very well equipped. I can't imagine there's a swimming pool with better views anywhere in the world! Florence, Pisa and Lucca are within easy reach for day trips and the village of Barga is only 15 minutes away with a great selection of typical tuscan restaurants. I would certainly recommend Te Kawa to anybody looking for a relaxing family holiday. …
