We experienced the most wonderful week at La Filanda and the property of I Cedri.
Joe and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary and wanted a special place that could accommodate 15 persons as well as areas that we could use for relaxing and a room for gathering for special times together. We decided on La Filanda because it provided for all our needs and we had fast and informative communications from Lorraine at Tuscan Rentals and the very personal correspondence from the owner of La Filanda, which is within the property of Agriturismo I Cedri.
The accommodations were perfect for the 15 travelers, some related, some friends and some of the party had never met. The design of the apartments and the extra house provided everyone with their own individual bed rooms and baths, areas of relaxing inside and out and full service kitchens.
The staff was on hand to give us any help we needed. They provided a full breakfast every morning, (sometimes at the wee hrs. of the morning) which we had arrange with the owner prior to our arrival. We also arranged for a welcome dinner the night of our arrival that was not only delicious but a perfect way to begin our week enjoying the foods of Garfagnana and northern Tuscany. We were served the wines from the estate and of course have only good memories of those flavorful choices.
Our Anniversary Dinner was completely in the hands of Daniela and what a wonderful evening it turned out to be. Food, wine, service, staff and music were beyond our wishes and the table was incredibly decorated with candle light and special flowers. Daniela had designed a beautiful menu printed for each guest. We cannot say enough about the entire enchanting night and making our 40th anniversary so special.
The estate is ideally located for exploring northern Tuscany and Garfagnana area. Lucca and Pisa are easy drives for a day adventure. The estate itself has plenty of areas to walk around and enjoy a true Italian working farm with vineyards, olive and chestnut trees as well as the vegetable gardens.
Our week was perfect in every way and we highly recommend Agriturismo I Cedri to anyone looking for something special. It truly is one of our favorite stays in Italy.
