We were three families with 5 children ranging from 6 to 11 and we had lots of space to enjoy our holiday! Dario, the owner, and Eleanora, his daughter who spoke English, were very welcoming and helpful. Dario lives in another part of the palazzo with his family and on our last night they even gave us a tour of their part of the house, which was very interesting! It's a very historic property with lots of charm. It is indeed great for hide and seek! Though the owner lives onsite, we had our privacy and only saw him when we asked for some help with working the spa and of course with the excellent pizza night! We also booked a chef to come and cook some traditional Tuscan fare for us one night, and Dario and Eleanora helped with this too. The pool was beautiful, the location was ideal in the hills, the sunsets were magnificent! There are several lovely outdoor seating areas around the property. The beds and rooms were very comfortable. There is a wifi room! We had such a wonderful time and will definitely return!
We were two families (4 adults, 4 children; ages from 13 to 16) from Finland spending our holidays in this beautiful old house with plenty of room and magnificient views! The few last kilometers to Treppignana village the road was quite narrow in some places, but we managed well even with our 9-seat miniwan. We explored Garfagnana area as well as Lucca and Florence. In the afternoons kids enjoyed the very nice pool and in the evenings we admired beautiful sunsets and played some billiard or table tennis. The owner Dario and his daughter Eleonora were very helpful and gave advise when needed. Special tanks to Lorenzo and Dario for the tasty traditional Italian pizzas that they prepared us in the stone owen on the last evening of our holiday. We had a lot of memories that we will not forget! We will absolute come back some day.
Dario the owner responded to any problems immediately but remained unobtrusive. The house is spacious with many nooks and crannies to explore - a lovely escape from the hot weather we experienced. Outside there is a beautiful seating area above the pool where we spent long relaxing evenings sharing food and wine with friends. Dario showed us how to make pizzas one evening in the pizza oven on the terrace. Location is beautiful although a car is essential for shopping etc. There are some walks from the property - we did the one to Braga in about 2 hours through the forest. Would highly recommend for a relaxing holiday to escape from city life.
