I could look at the amazing views forever.
We chose the property with a wish list in mind: Scenery, tranquility, food, and wine. And we got it all, in spades.
We had most meals under the rustic lean-to because we could look at the hills and mountains to the west, north and east.
The garden is beautifully kept. There were trees with apples, pears, figs, olives and Giancarlo has a tomato vine which he encouraged us to pick. I mean, we are talking real, big, funny-shaped proper tomatoes. Delicious.
As if that wasn't enough there were large rosemary bushes that went on the chicken on the BBQ and a sage that found its way into the vitello escallops we fried. Marsala wine at under 5 euros a bottle made it for an amateur's saltimbocca.
Giancarlo, the host who lives next door (I use the term next door loosely) is a great fellow. Often checked to see we were ok but not in the least intrusive.
The house is a restored farmhouse and all the plumbing, electrics, water, gas etc is bang up to date. TV is good and the wi-fi is excellent
Shopping is easy in the huge Conad supermarket down the hill in Gallicano. The local restaurant, Il Totto, we went to four times in the week. They don't run a menu, just what they have fresh on the day. I had the best ever sliced steak in oil and balsamic sauce and we still savour the home-made ravioli with spinach and ricotta.
The track down to the house is interesting but totally do-able. Our hire car, a humble 1.2litre Lancia which I dubbed "entrail-free" (gutless) made it up and down every day.
In many ways this review doesn't do justice to the property. That's because it is so hard to describe serenity and mountain views. We were totally smitten by the variety of wildlife: goats, deer, friendly lizards, butterflies. In the evenings we liked to hear the owls call to each other and the sound of crickets after the sun went down.
Thank you for the lovely detailed review. I would like to invite you back one day and can offer you a returners discount. I also manage many other villas in Tuscany so if you would like to return please do contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Fantastic but remote so get organised with provisions!!
A lovely place , be prepared to walk a lot which for us was brilliant! Thank you.
Thank you for the 5 star review. We do recommend that our guests hire a car but it is not absolutely necessary because there is a great restaurant in the village as well as a little shop. Avid walkers in particular love this house because of the fantastic walking routes, it sounds like it was perfect for you. If you would like to return to Le Lunghe or another house I manage I would be happy to offer you a returners discount.

Im Einklang mit der Natur
Ein wirklich schönes Haus, welches wunderschön gelegen ist. Wenn man Ruhe und Entspannung sucht ist man hier genau richtig. Die Aussicht auf die umliegenden Natur und die Berge sind überragend. Im nahe gelegenen Dorf Sassi lässt sich besonders das Restaurant Il Totto erwähnen, bei welchem man absolut authentisch essen gehen kann.
Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt und wären gerne noch geblieben. Auch der Eigentümer Giancarlo ist ein äußerst herzliche Gastgeber.
Thank you for your 5 star review. We agree the house is in harmony with nature and the perfect place for those seeking tranquillity and relaxation, also with the bonus being being walking distance to a restaurant. I would like to welcome you back and can offer you a returners discount.

Simple,clean house in amazing setting.
A clean,simple house,well equipped and with wonderful views.The area is beautiful.The owner is kind and helpful but not intrusive.The track surface to the house is poor and probably only suitable for 4wheel drive .But park on the road at the top and enjoy walking through the meadow to the house.Torches required!

Interior needs updating and a good clean value for money totally over priced
Nicely isolated very quiet. Nice views the track to the villa is very daunting and needs attention ok in 4x4 but anything else is a struggle if any problems English speaking woman not to helpful. Needs outside rubbish bin as have to take rubbish up to village 15 min walk or drive on daunting track house needs a good clean top to bottom cobwebs dead spiders dirty cooker and plenty of dust lamp shades filthy furniture fit for bonfire. It could be very nice. Sort it out home and away totally overpriced
Thank you for your feedback. Le Lunghe has been a very popular house with many returners the past few years. Due to the very private position of the house, the access road is a dirt track, but guests are advised to leave their car on the road above the house only 1 minutes walk. Nevertheless the road is still usable without a 4x4 vehicle.
Regarding the rubbish disposal, it is only 5 minutes walk to the centre of the village, with its popular restaurant.
The house has always been complimented on it's cleanliness. As the house is a country house there are going to be things like spiders webs from time to time, but rest assured the cleaner dusts the house thoroughly between guests. I am disappointed you never gave us a chance to address these minor complaints.
For a private, detached house with a pool in Tuscany, which during your period was only 500 euro all included for 7 nights, the price is very low indeed, and has always attracted many couples and small families.
Questo sarebbe un luogo di vacanza ideale per escursionisti e amanti della natura come le Alpi Apuane sopra il villaggio sono cris-attraversate con sentieri segnalati, come lo sono i Monti Appennini attraverso la valle.
Garfagnana ha la migliore a piedi in Toscana ed i proprietari sarà lieto di consigliarvi itinerari o accompagnarvi in escursioni guidate. Altre attività all'aria aperta come la mountain bike, canyoning e passeggiate a cavallo possono essere facilmente organizzati.
Ci sono belle piscine all'aperto a Castelnuovo, Gallicano e Barga. Tutte le piscine sono serviti da bar caffetteria e hanno una vista fantastica.
Nelle vicinanze, Barga è una città atmosferica con feste regolari, un mercato all'aperto d'estate settimanale sotto le stelle, mostre e gallerie.
Castelnuovo, 1000 piedi sotto casa, è un bene per tutti i tipi di negozi, ha aa mercato locale, due uffici di informazioni turistiche e molti bar e ristoranti.
Garfagnana è famosa in Italia per la qualità e il valore del suo cibo, cucinato in uno stile semplice e rustico con i migliori ingredienti locali
