Wonderful retreat in the mountains of Tuscany
The location is wonderful: quiet, private, surrounded by a lovely garden and surrounded by woods. The house is very well kept and comfortable. Pool is lovely, just as the outdoor dining area. Great place to slow down!
Glad you found this the perfect place to slow down and relax!
We hope to welcome you again.

We had a little difficulty locating the property initially, but this was due to our tiredness from travelling rather than a problem with the property directions, which were good. We could hardly believe our eyes when the villa finally came into view - it is beautiful. Photographs do not do it justice.
Alessio and Rosalba keep a beautiful property in a stunning secluded location. The villa and pool are immaculate and this is due to Rosalba and Alessio's attention to keeping the property clean. They do this discretely. You would never know they had been, but for the beautiful gifts left behind! We thoroughly enjoyed a really relaxing stay, making use of the pool and the barbeque throughout. We loved the quietness - just the jingling of the goat bells in the distance broke the silence. Fantastic! And Rosalba's tartes are sublime treats. We can thoroughly recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday.
Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear that you loved this beautiful place and found it better than the photos - you are right, they just do not do it justice.
We hope to hear from you another time.

Peaceful setting for a beautiful house
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.
Thank you for your review. It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the treats Rosalba left for you and thought the house was well equipped. We're pleased that you enjoyed the walking and the views too! We would be delighted to welcome you again. Lorraine at Tuscan-retreats
Great house in a beautiful peaceful setting
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.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a good time at this beautiful and peaceful property and that you enjoyed the surrounding area too .

Died and gone to heaven
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!!
Thank you for your review Cameron and we are happy to hear that you found the place delightful and wish to return! We agree that it is the perfect place for a different, off the beaten track type of holiday...
We hope to hear from you again

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.
