Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is the most popular region of Italy, famous for its wonderful climate, landscape, and art treasures.
The famous "art" cities of Florence, Sienna and Lucca are huge attractions, whilst the culinary tradition is there to be savoured.
The area around Villa collemandina is without doubt one of the most beautiful parts of all Tuscany

Villa Collemandina

Garfagnana is the best area in Tuscany for walking.
We have links with an outdoor activities company who offer guided walks and climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and world class gorge walking.

The area is well known for its excellent value restaurants, using the best of local ingredients. A typical set lunch with 4 choices of pasta course, and 4 choices of main course costs only 9 Euros inclusive of bread, wine and coffee. It is possible to have a multi-course traditional Sunday lunch or dinner with ample wine, coffee and liquors for less than 25 Euros.

“Stunning house with stunning views”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2012

This house is a fabulous place to stay with friends and would be equally pleasant for a family. It is very comfortably appointed and the furniture and bedding are of a high quality. The views from the patio are stunning and the villa is set amongst the green and verdant Apennine mountains, with villages precariously pitched on the mountainsides. It is a marvellously tranquil setting and you are really in the heart of Tuscany away from tourists, and from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There is a sense of privacy as there are no other families or people living close by. The pool is for sole use of those staying in the house and is cleaned twice a week. The local walks are hilly and sometimes challenging but the views from the mountains are well worth the effort; a car is needed for longer journeys as there are only a few local buses and nearest railway station is half an hour's drive away at Castelnuovo di Garfignana. Visiting local villages and Castelnuovo itself is a delight. Barga is a beautiful medieval walled town and is well worth a visit with its strong connections to Scotland ( Italians emigrated from the area to Scotland last century). Lucca too is fabulous, much bigger and more populated and the famous old medieval town is amazing. For the most part however, we just stayed within the area, walking and eating lovely food at local restaurants in nearby Castiglione or cooking meals with fabulous Tuscan produce and drinking local wine! This is the loveliest of houses in the most wonderfully private setting but with expansive panoramic views that are breath taking. I couldn't fault it and will certainly be going back.

“Nice property, impressive view, perfect swimming pool, reliable internet”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2012

We really liked our two-week stay at Casa Natalina. The house is situated in a quiet environment, and you really live in Italy without seeing tourists every day. The swimming pool is cleaned twice a week, and has beautifull views. Our children (7 and 10) loved picking and eating figs in the garden. WiFi was fast and reliable, so you can be online and connected to the world if you like. The TV had about 70 channels, although all in Italian, but we did not miss watching TV at all. We all slept very well in the good and clean beds. The owner provides the house with a lot of towels, so there is no need to bring your own. The house is large enough for 6 people (we were 4). The weather in July 2012 was excellent to swim each day for many hours. We visisted Corfina, Barga, Pisa, Lucca and Forte dei Marmi (at sea) and went to Orecchiella park and Fortress of the Verrucole. The museum in Pellegrino in Alpe was unexpectedly nice. You can have very cheap lunch between 13:00 and 16:00 at many restaurants (most of them within 15 to 30 minutes drive from Villa Collemandina). Best restaurant was Bonnini's with excellent food, good wine, friendly service (looked spottless and completely renovated in 2012). The high season price of the Casa Natalina property would have been acceptable, if it would have been clean - and newly renovated as the web site implies. But we think it is a little overpriced; the overall cleanliness was average and there were many small things that needed maintenance (it looks like the renovation had been some years ago now). Need to know for future visitors: the house is one of three connected houses and not detached, you cannot see or read this on the website (the left and yellow one of hour photos). The immediately attached house is for sale at the moment and unhabited with an occasional visit of a real estate agent, the third one at the other end is uninhabited and in bad repair. We experienced much privacy at the property, at the swimming pool and in the garden, but would both attached house be inhabited, this could have been completely otherwise. Contact the owner about the status of the other properties if you would like to rent Casa Nataline in 2013 and privacy is important. Regards, Marcel (the Netherlands

Thank you for the good and honest review. It seems like you had a very good time at the house and enjoyed the area. As you mention Bonnini's restuarant we realise that you must have taken advantage of the extensive information and recommendations that Friends of Tuscany provide. I hope you enjoyed the other recommendations. The house did receive an award as one of the Best 10 Villas with Pools in 2011. In 2013 it has been completely redecorated again.The tree house has been improved, and the area around the pool renewed. Most importantly, the wi-fi is very good, something which can be difficult to find in Italy. The neighbouring bulding has been unoccupied for many years and will remain so. It is no longer for sale. The house will remain as peaceful as it has always been, with one of the best views in the area.
