“Monica is a great host. The house is magnificent in the perfect spot high up on a hill with lovely sunset. House is set on the perfect side of the hill. A car rental is needed to go up to the house or visit neighbouring areas. On the way up to the house there is a large supermarket to buy groceries. There is a great Pizzeria called La Bionda and they also do deliveries. Its a perfect holiday for a relaxing weekend in total relaxation.”
Casa Paladini is a gorgeous stone cottage set in an ancient chestnut grove in the mountains above Castiglione di Garfagnana. Set back in time and well away from the nearest road, you will feel secluded but not isolated in this haven of peace. Ideal for those wishing to 'get away from it all' in a place of unspoilt natural beauty, yet only short hikes from the villages of Chiozza and Castiglione di Garfagnana.
“The house is easily reached with a 5-minute walk and is located in the middle of a beautiful chestnut forest. We spent 2 wonderful days collecting chestnuts and enjoying the wonderful surroundings (very beautiful in the fall). The house is very beautiful, it looks like a fairy tale! We can't wait to go back. Colm is special!”
La Collina del Sole has an award winning salt water infinity pool and jacuzzi, and views that are like something from a film set. Set in the stunningly beautiful Garfagnana region of northern Tuscany, La Collina del Sole is a jewel among the holiday villas in Lucca, it is a fabulous family home for relaxed summer living. Mountain hikes, discovering the villages and hidden beauty of Garfagnana can be combined with trips to the nearby coast, and the magical cities of Lucca and Florence.
“The villa and location are absolutely spectacular! Situated high in the Tuscan mountains the views are amazing and the home is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Andrew and Chrissie have spared no details in the home and were always very responsive and helpful. What really made our time even more amazing was the hospitality of Gessica (a local Italian lady) and her mother who provided us with a 5 course catered Tuscan dinner (complete with fresh ingredients from their garden) on American Thanksgiving Day and a pizza making lesson on another evening. They even brought us more firewood for the fireplace when we needed it! Even though the villa is famous for it's infinity pool overlooking the mountains, we could not have asked for a better stay even at the end of November. In fact, on Saturday the weather was warm and sunny and we spend hours hiking the local trails. We cannot say enough!”
