“Beautiful house and setting”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in September 2015

This was such a beautiful place to stay and an amazingly relaxing trip came from it. The first thing that comes to mind to share is how truly quiet it is up in Sommocolonia. As soon as we'd settled our things, I stuck my head out of a window on one of the upper floors and didn't bring it back in until after a good few minutes of lapping up my surroundings. I couldn't believe how much more quiet it felt than just sitting in the house with no tv or appliances on - the space surrounding you and the breath-taking views make it feel so much more solid a silence. This made it the perfect place for reflecting and enjoying the simple pleasures of nature, the sunshine and the stones beneath my feet.

That's not to suggest civilization isn't accessible; a short drive takes you to the town of Barga, which we took to doing every day for cheap and delicious coffee and pastries. From there we also travelled easily to Lucca by train. We eat out in Barga most nights, but I loved sitting outside at the house. We used the kitchen - which is really well-equipped - to make our own pizzas one night, and sat outside. For a Scottish resident, this is a rare luxury, and the view of the stars made it all the more memorable.

I would say that the location would make this more of a adults' ideal location, and bear in mind when staying that you usually need to go down to Barga to get groceries, etc. For us it was just something to bear in mind when planning our days - if it were more populated, we wouldn't have had the rich experience of local history that we did. There's a well in the front (or back, possibly, it was hard to tell) of the house which draws fresh drinking water from within the hill/mountain, which was built in honour of the life and death a young relative of one of the neighbours during WWII. I love getting this kind of local knowledge and the village has a fantastic history, but with this comes the remoteness of the village - definitely worth bearing in mind for those who prefer bustling holidays.

Another thing to bear in mind is the driving involved - the hills (or mountains - I think they are technically hills but feel very high) mean driving on windy roads. The scenery there is beautiful, but the one-way winding is something to be aware of if you're easily made unwell, or a nervous driver.

The decor was lovely inside the home. Taking a bath felt luxurious and the care taken with decorating is impressive and very tasteful. It made it feel like I was staying in someone's settled home, rather than somewhere intended as short term accommodation. I'd definitely love to go back one day soon.
