Peaceful setting for a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need for a relaxing get away from it all holiday and is even nicer than the photos on the website. Fresh cut flowers, a large custard tart and a bottle of fizz were waiting for us on our arrival together with Rosalba the lovely owner. The house is very well equipped with tea, coffee, sugar, salt, herbs and spices - worth knowing if you are shopping in a hypermarket on the way! Corfino is about 20 mins walk away and there is a bar/cafe there with amazing views over the valley and mountains. We hiked up to Pania di Corfino from Orricchiella National Park which is only around 5 minutes drive away - there's a cafe there too. Fabulous walk and stunning views. In September the weather was chilly in the morning and evening (plenty of wood for the huge fire) but blue skies and warm sunshine during the day. Definitely recommend this beautiful house and surrounding area.

Great house in a beautiful peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. The house was great and had everything we needed for a relaxing week. Corfino has several small shops for essentials and is a lovely little village. Easy day trip to Lucca on the train and the San Romano ropes course was great. The swimming pool at the house was beautifully warm and clean. The owners were extremely nice and everything was easy. Highly recommended for those wanting complete peace and quiet! We were a family with 2 kids aged 10 and 12.

Died and gone to heaven

  • 5 of 5

his has to be the most secluded, beautiful, peaceful, enjoyable and relaxing holiday we have ever had, and we have 2 young (8 and 11) children. Finding the villa was an adventure, staying in the villa was a delight, we cannot wait to go back... which we will! I've no doubt for some families this will not be right, but for us, we thought it was heaven. The accommodation was immaculate, and the care shown by our hosts, (whom we actually only saw on arrival and when we left - they stay offsite), was nothing short of amazing. If you're looking for literally perfect, off the beaten track, quiet, restful and peaceful holidays, this is it.... Just don't book it when we want to!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Lee, Kay and Melissa from Ledbury UK. This will be a long review but well worth the read. My family and I have travelled worldwide and always stopped in hotels so this was the first time we had ever rented a house and we were a little nervous and apprehensive as we all hear and see horror stories on the news and via social media about holidays going wrong BUT book with confidence Lorraine was always quick to reply to any and all emails when booking and only a phone call away when we arrived even late on Sunday. Thank you Lorraine. The House 1 hour 30 minutes from Pisa. You gain access to the house via a private half mile long drive way with security Gates half way down. The pictures of the house and grounds do not do it any justice it's better in real life. The house is immaculate, well maintained and very peaceful/quiet the owners are the best we arrived late Sunday evening and had no opportunity to buy any food so they went back home and russelled up some food for us and brought it back with a homemade cake about three days into our holiday they left us a basket full of fresh produce and vegetables and a second home cake for the start of the second week of our holiday. The owner's come to the house every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to clean the pool not that you will ever noticed them there because they come at around 6:30 a.m. they clean the house from top to bottom every Saturday at 2:30 p.m. even kept us supplied with dishwasher tablets and washing detergent for use in washing machine it's the little things that make a holiday special and Mr and Mrs Giorgi are the perfect hosts. Thank you xx

Stunning villa in a stunning secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Selected this villa based on the secluded location and rural surroundings. It certainly delivered.

It is situated in a beautiful setting and offers a completely private retreat. Inside and out the villa is immaculate and well equipped.

Rosable & Giorgio are meticulous in their care including discreetly cleaning the pool very regularly. The local fruit and desserts were a very welcome addition.

The local village of Corfino is 5 minutes drive and is really lovely. It has 2 small shops where you can buy local produce.

Definitely a villa we would return to.

Superb villa which has a super location with a large private plot with a lovely pool area.

Situated high in the mountains 2km from the village of Corfino, this is a really peaceful retreat in the depths of the countryside, affording total privacy for a relaxing holiday. The village of Corfino itself has a basic shop, a couple of hotels with restaurants and a further two restaurants, so the house does not feel too remote!

The National Park of Orecchiella is only a 10 minute drive, perfect for walking and Eagle spotting!

There are supermarkets in the local village of Pieve Fosciana, a 15 minute drive and the market town of Castelnuovo is 20 minutes away.

For days out, the medieval town of Barga is 35 min.; Lucca 1 hr 15 min., Pisa, 1h. 35 min.
