“14 Glorious Days”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2015

I was lucky enough to spend two weeks at La Sambuca Formicola with family and friends in July and August of this year. It is a perfect place to unwind. The apartments, pool, view, weather were all stunning. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Also a special mention for the charming Piazza Al Serchio which is just five minutes away - fabulous pizzerias and cafes (I still miss their cappacinos) and a wonderful market in the square every Tuesday. Even more special however was Il Ristoro del Cavaliere which is within walking distance of the apartments - an authentic Italian restaurant which is a sheer delight. If you've never been to the Garfagnana region before please give it a try - we have been going every summer for 10 years, it's a special place, full of happy memories and a huge part of our family's lives.

It sounds like you had a great time, and enjoyed having the entire site to yourselves. We are glad that you love the area and have returned so many times! Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. Lorraine at tuscan-retreats

“Beautiful rural location and great base for exploring Northern Tuscany”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2014

We stayed with friends and the location was excellent for visits to local countryside, mountains, lakes and handy for the railway station to get the train to Lucca (about an hour) and Cinque Terre (about one hour and forty if you research the correct connection). The house (Formicola) was one of several on site sharing a lovely pool. The views were stunning and the owner let us pick delicious tomatoes and beans in her vegetable plot whenever we liked. We had two comfortable bedrooms and shared bathroom. The living area consisted of a small sofa and a dining table and also an eating area outside. The kitchen had everything we needed. The small restaurant in the nearby village (10 minute walk) was superb. It's not open every night but we went three times in our week and loved every time. Would recommend the big supermarket in Gallicano to stock up on groceries en route on the way from south. There's a really helpful tourist office at the supermarket where you can pick up lots of maps and information about the area. We did so much in one week but highlights included: cycling around Lucca and going to the Puccini concert, driving high into the mountains to see the marble works, a walk along the Cinque Terre coast path and the amazing Verrucole fortress.
