Villa Belvedere
Reviewed 22 July 2012

This year, we stayed at Villa Belvedere for the second year in a row. It is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. The view on the Tuscan hills is absolutely stunning, the pool is amazing and the service is very good. Having breakfast overlooking the valley is an unforgettable experience. The landlady and her daughter are extremely nice. The rooms are simple, but very clean and cozy. You can have dinner in an excellent restaurant in the nearby centre of Pieve Fosciana or in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. There are plenty of places to visit in the area: the cities of Barga and Lucca, Montecatini Terme (a famous spa town), the Lago (Lake) di Vagli or even the Versilian Coast with the beaches of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi (great for shopping, about 1h15 by car)! Great value for money!

A beautiful mansion in the middle of a peaceful side valley of Garfagnana. The superior room is very nice and clean, as well as the pool. The breakfast is just enough, but there would be room for improvement.

Room Tip: Perhaps, in summer, it would be wise to avoid the last floor rooms. Superior, rooms are fine.

If you stay at this villa and have used a booking agency where they have your credit card details don't make the same mistake that we did..
On the morning that we left we paid for our stay in cash. Not speaking any Italian and dealing with the little old lady that was there that morning we struggled to get a reciept from her. I now know why.
A week after we left we noticed that our credit card account was debited the same amount again.
We have spent the last 6 weeks trying to reverse the charge.
The villa denies we paid for the rooms and claims we left without paying so charged our credit card. They are lying but with no reciept I think they got us. Yes I know, we were silly for not insisting on a reciept.
Please don't make the same mistake we did, always ask for a receipt no matter how nice these little old grandmas seem.
I wonder how many others they got.
We travelled around Europe for 9 weeks and stayed at many hotels without any dramas.
Be warned.

Sono molto dispiaciuto dell'accaduto. Erroneamente non vi avremo rilasciato la ricevuta, anche se noi mettiamo sempre molta attenzione nel rilasciare le ricevute ai clienti.
Non comprendo però perchè non avete preteso la ricevuta?

Rinnovo le mie scuse.

This lovely villa offers excellent value bed and breakfast accommodation. It has large gardens with a pool and the views are stunning. There are plenty of parking spaces
The bedroom was comfortable and warm and the en-suite was modern and clean with a super-powerful shower and plenty of towels.
The staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the generous continental breakfast.
It's within walking distance of Pieve Fosciana and the wonderful Il Pozzo restaurant but the roads are busy with no footpaths or street lights - take a torch.
Also, take a print out of the directions from their website -our sat-nav failed to pick up on the address.

After driving to the middle of no-where, Italy be prepared to live like the locals. Stores open at certain times and close for the afternoon and dinner is after 7pm. Make sure you get the food schedule quick as the 6hr time difference really messes timings up with kids.

The only reason to come here is to see the countryside of Italy and see some small towns and walk around.

This may have been a better experience if we were not cramped in the tiny, extremely hot attic with 2 kids, no space and a bathroom that had a sloping ceiling so you cannot stand up fully or take a shower (in the tub).

On the other hand the owners were really helpful and nice. Breakfast was great (some of the best we had in Italy) but the english was a struggle so speak Italian/french if you can!

The pool was freezing. but had a couple of lounge chairs to bask in the sun after.

Good evening,
we are truly sorry for the heat in mandarda, but now we have to install air conditioning.
Unfortunately regards to the spaces of the attic (you say cramped) I would say it is a personal taste, since the pitched roof with exposed wood beams are a feature that customers usually appreciate.

Thanks for the compliments on the breakfast, we will try to give our best ... also the English.

Sincerely.

Cordiali saluti.
