We were a little surprised to discover that La Luna is situated 8 kilometres from Fivizzano in the tiny village of Quarazzana, so rural that horses and cows are allowed to wander free in the lanes.
After first driving past what looked like a ruined farmhouse we returned to be met by cheerful, English speaking Illaria, who assured us that we had found the right place before showing us the tasteful renovation her family had made to the buildings while still retaining the original rustic charm.
The highly functional rooms radiate from a courtyard with access to the gardens/grounds with sunbathing facilities and offer wonderful views, especially in the early morning mist.
Choosing to accept the offer of an evening meal was the right decision. Several courses of delicious home cooking, much of which came from the kitchen garden, appeared from the kitchen accompanied by a specially picked wine. A highlight was to taste the gorgeous cheese made by Illaria's father.
It was like having our own private chef. Fantastic experience! Breakfast is no less a feast with home made delights and yet more cheese.
Fivizzano itself is a delightful walled town steeped in history and offering several restaurants, bars and a good supermarket. In the area are several excellent walking opportunities with stunning scenery.
We very much enjoyed recharging batteries in this rural oasis. Highly recommended and won't break the bank.
