Pros We loved the tranquility and the view, the house was lovely and cool as we had very hot temperatures, the pool was small but perfectly adequate for all of us to cool down.
Outside there is a lovely area by the pool under some olive trees to sit and eat al fresco with maybe the odd glass of Prosecco!
There's lot of flora and fauna and we enjoyed an amazing display of fireflies while we were there.
Roberto and Mara were perfect, they kept an eye out but were not intrusive, thank you for letting us stay at your lovely holiday home.
Local attractions A great supermarket in Barga (Conad) very wide choice of lovely food and drink with very helpful staff, we stocked up there and then relaxed at the house. Visited Bagni di Lucca and had a lovely dinner at Albergo Corona (it's in the restaurant details at the house) delicious and lovely setting by the river. Loved Lucca and Cinqe Terre and then had a great time in Pisa at the end, will definately be back.

Pros Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig. Der Poolbereich ist vor fremden Blicken blicken geschützt, so dass man absolut für sich sein kann. Man hört nur manchmal Stimmen von den 2 umliegenden Häusern!
Das Haus hat Charme, ist sehr gepflegt und liebevoll betreut. Wir haben uns superwohl gefühlt! Danke Mara und Familie!!!!
Cons Ich finde es (anfangs) schwer zu finden, aber das bringt diese exponierte Lage einfach mit sich. Fest installierte Fliegengitter in den Schlafzimmern fände ich gut!
Local attractions Pisa, Marina die Pisa. Lucca.
