My week at Lavacchio was absolutely heavenly. Jamie and Ailsa are wonderful hosts, and carefully consider every detail about their beautiful property for their guests, and at every turn you can see the way they lovingly tend to the place, from the lush lavender bushes fringing the poolside setting, through to the perfect positioning of the hilltop yoga shala. I... More

Some experiences change you for all the right reasons and my yoga week at Col di Lavaacchio was one of them. A stunning setting in the Tuscan mountains, the farm buzzing with the happiest bees gorging on swathes of lavender. Outstanding attention to detail, all your senses are catered for, from the gorgeous meals, made with the freshest and thoughtfully... More

Just returned from a Pilates retreat held at Col di Lavacchio last week. This organic farm is a little piece of heaven right here on earth. It has an enviable setting high above the valley with panoramic views which take your breath away. The week was arranged through Sarah Hardy an excellent pilates instructor who put us through our paces... More

If you are looking for beautiful landscapes, tasteful and comfortable rooms, good cooking kitchen or indeed an exceptional cook, this idle on the mountains near Molanzzana is for you. My third year in three, the landscaping changes depending on the weather - lush, blooming; and at certain times of the year, fireflies twinkle in the early dark evenings. If you... More

This is a rather different sort of holiday and you need to be sure that this is what you want. Jamie and Ailsa's converted old Tuscan farmhouse, where we (just six of us) stayed in May 2013, is pretty remote. We were picked up by Jamie from Lucca train station and conveyed by 9 seater van to Lavacchio. The road... More

I just returned from a glorious week in Tuscany, staying at Jamie and Ailsa's beautiful 'agri turismo' at Col di Lavacchio. The location is beautiful and the perfect spot to explore the Apuani and Appenine mountain ranges. I stayed in the farmhouse which was really charming, very well equipped in every way and with wonderful views from the terraces. Set... More

We've just returned from a week at Col Di Lavacchio, one of the most memorable holidays we can remember. Situated in the less fashionable part of Tuscany, about 30 miles north of Lucca, it overlooks some spectacular countryside, largely the Northern Apennines mountain range. Run and owned by Jamie and Ailsa who have lovingly converted this typical Tuscan farm into... More

We went for the "Wild Walks" option on the website and were not disappointed. The Alpi Apuane and, across the valley, the Appenines have fabulous landscapes and Jamie does an excellent job in leading the walks, which are carefully planned yet flaxible enough to cater for a differing levels of fitness and expectations. We stayed in the farmhouse part of... More

If it is possible to have loved my return visit to Lacacchio even more that my first visit, it would only be because the wildflowers were in unbelievable bloom. Ailsa and Jamie have created the perfect vacation spot - beautifully landscaped surroundings and wonderfully appointed accommodations. A fabuous place for friends or family to gather for a truly unique and... More

This farmhouse-villa is a beautiful spot for a small or large group to settle in for a few days of R and R or longer. The very welcoming low-key English-speaking couple who own, llive on, and run the property will organize hikes, gourmet meals, and local transport as needed for reasonable fees. The property has a spectacular view of the... More
