Getting around

You'll have your own car and a map or sat nav and you'll receive a list of all the wonderful things to do in the area. The local railway station is Piazza al Serchio, just down the hill from the house, in the next town, if you have visitors coming in by train. You can also use a train to go to Lucca for the day, or Florence or the Cinque Terre. Italian rail is incredibly cheap.

Interaction with guest

You will be met by my charming neighbour, Anna, a former schoolteacher at the local school who was part of the family from whom I purchased the property in 1988. She will help you with any information or help you require during your stay. If you're there in the summer months it is likely that I, the owner, may be in the villa and if so I will look forward to meeting you and sharing some home grown produce from my garden with you.

“Simplistic luxury with spectacular views”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2015

Loved the wonderful location perched on a hilltop with breathtaking views. Everything on hand to make for the perfect holiday...great location, gentle evening breeze to cool off from the hot tuscan sun, swimming pool, terrace for outdoor dining, comfy bed and excellent amenities. Would definitely go back.

Owner's reply: It was wonderful to have you here. You are always welcome to return.

“Holiday within the holiday!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2015

Six adults and four teenagers travelling Italy during the heatwave, travelling between cities, dragging luggage, changing hotels....BUT THEN...our stay at the Wild Boars, Beautiful Tuscan Rustic Villa. What joy, what a different pace, what total enjoyment for one and all. The moment we stepped inside we knew we had finally arrived on our truly beautiful Italian holiday. It was the highlight of our trip. The calmness and the serenity of the surroundings is what one can only dream of. The spectacular views - simply breathtaking. We all found ourselves at the windows, taking in as much a we could. The pool was wonderful to cool down on those hot days. Staying in a villa as opposed to a hotel, changed the dynamics of our group, it became wholesome and together. Cooking and eating together was simply sensational. One complete and stunning meal was cooked for us by a local, in our villa, whilst we galavanted and played tourist. Coming home to local produce and a home cooked meal...too hard to convey the joy! Everything we needed was there in the villa. Fresh supplies upon request, were ready and waiting for us upon arrival. We purchased freshly picked vegetables from a neighbour with a fabulous garden, for our dinners. The villa's garden supplied us with fresh herbs. The fruit and veggies were not fully ripened, sadly. The wood fired pizza oven was a great hit with the teenagers and fathers; not sure how, but the end result was delicious! The Villa did more than provide the holiday we all truly needed and wanted, it gave us a family holiday that we all longed for.

“Wow, it couldn't be more stunning!”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2015

We stayed at The Wild Boars villa and it was truly spectacular! The views are nothing short of breath taking, the pool is irresistible and the villa is gorgeous. We had everything we could need and loved our stay. Evening drinks on the terrace watching the sun set of the Tuscan countryside needs to be seen to be believed. The surrounding villages are picturesque and you can drive into many local towns for a yummy dinner when you don't feel like cooking. The villa has been done beautifully and still feels very Italian, I would definitely recommend a stay at Wild Boars

“Seven Days of Bliss”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2014

I spent seven wonderful days at I Cinghiali in the beautiful mountains of Tuscany. Everything about this place is magical - the villa, the views, the pool, the food, the surrounding area (you do need a car). Great local walks & a little further afield great shopping & exploring of history. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting. I'm planning to go back with family & friends. AAA+++ in my books. Totally relaxing & energising.

“A breathtaking, relaxing and authentic Northern Tuscany experience”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2014

WOW ... If you want to embrace a part of Italy with narrow streets, views of castles built in 1000, within driving distance of markets where the locals sell clothes, food and nick nacks this is the place to house your experience. Beautifully designed home, well fitted out kitchen, luxurious linen, wonderful hosts and local support to ensure the experience is absolutely AMAZING. Maximise an authentic experience rather than a touristy option and stay here at i Cinghiali... just gorgeous!

“Outstanding”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2014

Fabulous home with large spacious rooms ideal for friends or family. Everything you need in the kitchen is supplied and wonderful dining room to enjoy dinner at home - there is even a local cook available if required as well as close restaurants near by. Comfortable beds and freshly ironed linen and lovely new wet area showers - abundant hot water. Close to villages and amenities and fun markets and great shopping. Also if you want a night at home excellent DVD selection to enjoy reminiscing some great movies and cosy open fire for the winter months. Great library and games for kids. Would absolutely recommend this accommodation and will definitely be back with the family. Great way to experience Italy at its best.

“Beauty and comfort among Tuscany's hill-top villages”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2013

When my husband and I take family and friends to stay at I Cinghiali - which we have done 7 times - I like to make them wait a second at the bottom of the external stairs to the terrazzo so I can dart up first - then turn to watch the expressions on their faces as they catch their first view of the panorama that spreads before them. It never fails! Appreciative gasps of "O.M.G.: that's beautiful/incredible/amazing !" are pretty common. I Cinghiali has many delights - but for me, that terrace is what brings my family back- again and again. Well, that and the relationships we've built with the good folk of Caprignana as we've participated in their summer pursuits: most notably, the local summer bocce festival where visiting players (like us) are welcomed (and, if necessary, taught) with great enthusiasm. And the historic cheese-rolling tournament in the next-door village. And the village feast and dancing in the little square to mark ferragosto and the conclusion of the bocce season. And cooking porchetta 'to-die-for' in the big, stone open-air oven. When you return frequently to a holiday place that you've learned to love, it's usual to notice the inevitable, gradual deterioration. At I Cinghiali, the opposite is the case. Every year, there are improvements on what you'd thought was already perfect. Next year (2014) there'll be a swimming pool - and we can't wait to get there again!

“Just divine,awesome place to stay with beautiful views from every window,classy,relaxing and very stylish Tuscan hideaw.”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2013

Really enjoyed my stay, it is an amazing place to stay in the beautiful Tuscan hills, very good condition, quality accomadation, safe,clean ,quiet and very relaxing. With a beautiful view of a the surrounding Tuscany countryside including a 10th Century fort on the hillside in the distance. Lots of attention to detail with the furnishings and deco, i really loved both the villa and the adjacent Studio next door. Would definately stay again given the opportunity. My stay there was a great adventure and wonderful opportunity to see Tuscany and the lovely surrounding villages and more .

“A jewel on Tuscany- What a find!”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2013

As soon as you arrive- you feel you have 'switched off' from the busyness of life- peace , views to die for- Fresh food- fun towns to visit and shop! What more can any one want from a holiday! So easy to get to by train or car After two visits - its right up there.. Go find out for yourself...

“A magnificent location, with outstanding views and quality accommodation”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2013

I have actually stayed at I Cinghiali 3 times with different groups of friends, and every time was an enjoyable experience. As keen walkers, we enjoyed the many opportunities for mountain and forest walks in the Apuane and Appennine Mountains. We were remote from the usual tourist routes, but could still use the villa as a base to visit Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano and the Cinque Terre. The local people were very friendly, eating opportunities most satisfactory, and numerous short scenic drives available if you want to explore the countryside, albeit on narrow mountain roads.
