We spent 10 days here and had a super time. The countryside is gorgeous, overlooking mountainous landscapes and set among olive groves. Having a car is necessary for the 10-minute mountain drive up to the cottage, but well worth it once you're there. The location was good for visiting the Garfagnana/Apuan Alps for hiking, Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre. The cottage is well-equipped and handy for a couple or small family. This was out first holiday with a small baby and we had an excellent time and would recommend this place. The owners were very accommodating with lots of info and advice. We will miss it!
