Situated in the heart of a beautiful part of Northern Tuscany in a peaceful family estate producing its own wine and olive oil, the accommodation is equipped to a very high standard providing an ideal and reasonably priced holiday for an extended family.
We were greeted by Daniella and daughter who briefed us on the accommodation and equipment and arranged for the speedy supply of some extra items we requested. They also provided a comprehensive guide to shops, restaurants and attractions in the vicinity. A large supermarket and petrol station is close at hand .
The accommodation has spectacular views across the valley to the distant mountains with a remarkable natural rock arch on the horizon. Viewed from the infinity pool with fire flies at night, it was a magical setting. We would particularly recommend a visit to Bagni di Lucca for its literary and English connections in addition to the more well known towns of Barga and Lucca. The friday all you can eat and drink pizza and dance party in the restaurant of Albiano was a unexpected delight.
Daniella went beyond the call of duty in posting back to us in UK a driving licence and phone charger that we had left behind.
We were 3 generations of a family spending a week in Tuscany. This property has it all - the big house is very spacious and comfortable, the smaller house also excellent - and has a wonderful balcony off the bedroom upstairs that we spent hours on, reading, and watching the view. It is possible to walk to nearby Barga on "mule" trails (off the busy roads), and reaching multiple beautiful villages or Lucca by car was easy. The pool is outstanding- located above the house it has an infinity edge and stunning views! Very welcome cool off after a long hot day. Beds were comfortable - we all slept well. The location is very quiet and very spacious - perfect for our family vacation.
