From the owner

Casa Laura is set in the medieval village of Sillico, 700 metres above sea level in the Garfagnana valley. This spacious villa offers not only comfortable accommodation but spectacular panoramic views of the valley, Apuan Alps and Appeninne mountains.

The villa is our home for a proportion of the year and is decorated and furnished in a blend of modern and traditional styles. We want you to feel at home even when you are away.

The villa and swimming pool is for the sole use of the family or party that have booked it.

The Garfagnana has an enormous amount to offer anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Whether it's cycling and mountain biking, hiking, horse riding, canyoning, spending the day amoungst the trees on a rope course or crossing the valley on a slip wire. The areas' diverse natural enviroment is well suited to a wide range of outdoor activities.

We have always maintained a high level of cleanliness at Casa Laura but with the arrival of COVID19 we have adopted some permanent changes.  All kitchen surfaces and floors throughout the villa are cleaned using antibacterial products.  Antibacterial soap is provided.  Our linens and towels are washed in professional Miele machines at a high temperature with an antibacterial cycle.

Casa Laura's accommodation is divided over two floors. On the ground floor you have a lounge and study area complete with free WIFI unlimited internet access, a kitchen with dining area, bathroom and the twin bedroom.

The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with a five ring gas cooker and granite worktops and seating for 6.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms and a modern bathroom.

The large terrace is accessible from the first floor and provides a convivial area for al fresco dining and general relaxing.

The house also includes a wood burning pizza oven and off street parking for two cars.

If your holiday dates aren't being accepted by the system please contact me. I may be able to accommodate them.

The village benefits from having a combined popular restaurant, small shop and bar. There are well stocked supermarkets, independant shops, bars and a choice of restaurants a short drive away in Pieve Fosciana.

We live a short distance away and are on hand as much or as little as required. We always try to welcome our guests upon arrival and settle you in. Our reviews give an unbiased judgement and truthfull picture of our villa and the surrounding area.

A local tourist tax of 1 euro per person over the age of 14, for a max of 5 nights is payable upon arrival, in cash.

A perfect base to discover the popular destinations of Lucca, Barga, Pisa, Florence and Siena either by car or by train from Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. The Ferrari museum and race track at Maranello and the World Heritage site, Le Cinque Terra also make great days out. Seven walking paths start and finish in Sillico, enabling you enjoy, relax and emerse yourself in the natural beauty of the countryside. L'Orrido di Botri, a natural gorge and La Grotta del Vento are also worth a visit.

Further details indoors

Should heating be required we have a very efficient pellet stove. Pellets will be available and charged according to usage.

Further details outdoors

Casa Laura has a garden which is not fenced and is on different levels. Please check it's suitablility if you have young children or mobility restrictions.

Interaction with guest

My husband and I live a few kilometres away and can be on hand as little or as much as is required. I like to welcome and settle in my guests upon arrival but we have a key safe by the front door so even if your arrival is late we have a solution. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the area having lived here for a considerable time and a good selection or maps, tourist information brochures and guide books of the area to insure you have all the information you need to plan a successful holiday.
