Fantastic villa, great location with breathtaking view. House is clean, spacious and well-equipped. Sillico is beautiful, small quiet village and nearby towns are great to visit. There are nice hiking paths round Sillico. House owners are very friendly and helpfull. Pizza oven in the yard is great, we made probably the best pizzas ever.. House is suitable for small children.

We spent a wonderful 7 night's here in September. The weather whilst staying was to say the least variable and that's when this villa came into its own. It is so well appointed and extremely comfortable. Everything you would wish for in a holiday villa was here. The owners are extremely pleasant, helpful but above all unobtrusive. We can say...

About the neighborhood
The Garfagnana is situated in the northern part of Tuscany, nestled between the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan Appennine mountains. It is a region rich in local traditions, natural beauty and breathtaking views. In order to protect its beauty in 1985 it was designated a natural park. Naturally the area provides great walking country and from Sillico there are a series of clearly marked walks of varying length and difficulty enabling you to discover the territory and enjoy this wonderful landscape. There are countless mountain top villages to explore and during the summer months many of the villages have festivals. On three evenings in July and August Sillico hosts one of the best. The village is transported back to medieval times, its residents are all in period costume and the cobbled stre... more
