#3 of 12 Specialty lodging in Licciana Nardi
Are you looking for an off beaten path Italian vacation, a mix of Italian rural life, contact with nature, relax and tranquillity? Palazzo del Duca offers all of that in the magic atmosphere of a 17th century old palazzo situated in the heart of a lovely tiny medieval village surrounded by the natural beauty of the Tuscan-emilian Appennines National Park. A paradise for lovers of all activities in close contact with nature: trekking, hiking, fishing, horse riding, canoeing etc. Etc. At very close distance there are the 100 Lakes Park and Alpi Apuane Park. We are in Tuscany, but very close to other 2 regions, Liguria and Emilia Romagna. The area is gem-set between mountains and sea. In 30 minutes driving you can go skiing in the winter or you can go visiting one of the most beutiful coasts of Italy, 5 Terre (Unesco Site), Portovenere and Gulf of Poets

I cannot speak highly enough of Palazzo del Duca! We first visited the Palazzo in 2016 with a large group, and returned recently with our immediate family for another week. Both visits were completely enjoyable. Mirella (the GM) is a wonderful and gracious host; the rooms are spacious and relaxing; the building is well updated to preserve its history and provide modern conveniences; the grounds and pool are beautiful, quiet and peaceful. The place is an oasis in the Italian mountains with ready access to hiking, small Italian town ambiance, great local food, fine Italian wine (especially that from Mirella's husband Francesco), and day trips to Cinque Terra, northern Tuscany, Milan, Florence, and many other local towns. We were so happy to show our daughters the place we enjoyed so much on our first visit. 5 stars all around!! Doug M

A large group of us stayed for a week, celebrating some special birthdays, and we all fell in love with Tavernelle, and our gracious host at the Palazzo del Duca, Mirella. She was so gracious, welcoming, friendly and is a wonderful cook--she served a delicious dinner for 25 of us one of our first nights there. We so enjoyed the historical and charming setting of the Palazzo, lounging by the pool in the afternoon and evenings, walking over to the local bar/restaurant/community gathering place and being so well located for short day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Porto Venere, and Cinque Terre.

Our extended family of 15 people (3 generations!) had the most wonderful week in this glorious palazzo in Tavernelle, Tuscany. The memories we shared will bring us joy for a lifetime. Thank you to owner/managers Mirella, Francesco and especially their adorable daughter Elana! - for the hospitality, the delicious food, and for being so gracious to our family. The space was comfortable, spacious, warm and inviting. The pool was glorious - and so necessary on those hot summer days! - and the garden with its glorious flowers and trees was an oasis. We loved taking day trips to surrounding mountain villages, hiking in the woods, swimming in the creek, and night-time strolls down the enchanted alleys of this ancient village, down to the fields lighted only by fireflies. Truly a magical vacation.

Our visit to Palazzo del Duca was certainly a highlight of our trip to Italy. We were thrown back in time by the lovely medieval town of Tavernelle and the Palazzo itself is a gem of a place. The space in our apartment was large and beautiful and though it had the look of a bygone era, it had everything we needed to be relaxed and comfortable. The town was quiet, quaint and friendly. We loved our time there. Mirella was a kind, considerate and most hospitable host. She was easy to talk to and shared lots of good ideas for day trips in the area. We had a cooking lesson with her that was fun and instructive... and fed us well for two meals. We would be delighted to return to the Lunigiana area and the Palazzo del Duca especially. The Palazzo is one of those extraordinary places that will always have a place in our hearts.
