We recently stayed at Pian Di Fiume for 10 nights and had a great time. Our apartment was called Ange, it had 2 storeys and a terrace upstairs.
The owner Massimo and his assistant Daniella couldn't have been more helpful, the apartments were delightful but our highlight was learning to make pasta!
The former village is situated on top of a rather steep hill but everbody seemed to manage, the bonus being that once you got to the top the views were fantastic.
The complex has a pool and Massimo owns a couple of km of riverbank, with gravelly beaches. While we were there a BBQ was held on one part of the beach and kids were allowed to float down the river on inflatable tubes, it was entirely safe as the river does not seem to have undercurrents.
Another evening a murder mystery was held which was fantastic fun, even if some of the clues lost something in translation.
The food was cooked by Daniella and her helpers and was delicious every time. But there were so many courses you really didn't have room for everything!
We were also invited to go to a local festival which was a fascinating occasion, so much food and dancing!
We also suggest travelling to Lucca as cycling around the walls is a great thing to do on a day out.
Our only criticism is that you really need a car. We travelled by train and took a taxi to Pian but unless you don't plan to move at all for a week it really is easier to drive. The only access to Bagni is currently via the main road as a landslide has destroyed part of the private road and it is not a particularly safe walk.
Overall i would definitely go back!
