Super escape near lucca
This is an amazing ranch near.lucca. super isolated but beautiful. The pool and hosts were fantastic.
A superb accommodation featuring a beautiful view of Tuscany. The owners were always kind and helpful. We would recommend this property unreservedly.
Beautiful setting, warm and inviting, good location.
What a beautiful setting to enjoy the Tuscany area of Italy. We choose the location and then did day trips to a variety of locations. The owners are so helpful and warm.
Awesome getaway in the middle of Italy/nowhere
It took a few days to settle in but then it was beautifully quite & fantastic views all around...you did not see the family who lived there unless you wanted to, they where absolutely wonderful people. Fredrico the owner spoke no English & I spoke no Italian but we hit it off & understood each other completely & his wife & sons where lovely...what a laugh we had,it was nice looking around the local area but always great to get back to the ranch...so relaxing & chilltastic.
Would I go there again...ho yes but I would fly not drive..
Ps. Thanks to the family for making us feel at home x
Amazing setting, beautifully furnished and hosts couldn't have been more helpful
The owners and their family ( and pets) couldn't have been more lovely and helpful and this contributed to make it a perfect week. The property itself was characterful and beautifully furnished. The surrounding countryside was stunning and if you have the energy then a mountain bike ride to nearby villages is well worth it (and easier than driving a large vehicle round the numerous hairpin bends.) We were glad we had stocked up on the way at Essenlunga in the nearby town of Marlia as we could then relax around the villa for the first few days. Overall it was an amazing holiday - complete with our first sighting of fireflies and eagles..
A wonderful property full of rustic charm with stunning views!
We had the most fantastic week. Do not be put off by the gravel road leading to Carpineta Ranch it is worth the adventure!
It is also worth mentioning the supermarket in Marlia which is very handy for stocking up on provisions for the week.
This location offered us the perfect place to explore and relax.
The property itself is very comfortable and well equipped with plenty of room for all 7 of us.
Outside in the grounds and by the pool you are treated to the most spectacular views.
Evening meals spent outside at the large dining table accompanied by the sound of crickets were especially memorable.
In terms of venturing out, the town of Lucca is very near by and with some research we visited nearby mountain villages plus a day trip to Florence. Trains run half hourly from Lucca and take around an hour 30 mins.
Simply taking a mountainside walk to the nearby church ruin has rewarding views.
The owners Simonetta, Frederico and family are charming, warm and fun. They couldn't help us enough.
(They are not fluent English speaking - members of our party did speak Italian and French which helps) plus their dogs Buck and Freda - and the cat - are very friendly too!
We would definitely visit again and cannot thank them enough for their hospitality. A truly Italian experience!
The nearest motorway junction is the Firenze Mare A11, at Lucca Est exit. Exit from the motorway and follow directions to Garfagnana; go through the ring road that surrounds the historical walls of the city and then arrive at Via del Brennero SS1 towards Garfagnana. After about 6 km you will arrive at the roundabout, take the third exit on the bridge (Ponte dalla Chiesa) along the Serchio river; then go along the main street toward Garfagnana. After about 200 m exit at Sesto di Moriano (DO NOT ENTER THE TUNNELS); proceed along the main street for 500 m, then you will find the road sign Aquilea to the left. Proceed along the main street for 3 km and after the Church (up to your right) follow directions to Mastiano/Gugliano (but DO NOT take this exit). Proceed along the main street for 300 m and after the bend, you will find a small road sign to the left with the directions to Carpineta. You will reach your destination after 1 km.
