“You couldn't wish for better hosts!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in July 2013

I don't quite know how to describe this house in a nutshell. Suffice to say it fit our idea of a prefect Italian holiday.

The house and it's apartment on the other side of the garden are very functional, very good for a large family or two families. It is beautifully restored and immaculately clean but doesn't have a lot of frills. The bedrooms are very large and light. There is no living room. The very large kitchen serves as both, but as we were never inside it didn't matter at all.
What sets this house apart is the fantastic outdoor space. The garden and pool are huge. their is a beautiful covered outdoor eating area. The garden has a lot of trees, thus shade and many of which are fruit trees. All week we ate figs, plums and vegetables from the garden.
What (or should I say who) really made our holiday so memorable were the owners. Nothing was too much trouble. Their incredible generosity and caring attitude made us feel totally at home. Incredibly kind easy going people!
We had a great time at the village pizza festival, dancing and eating too much cheap pizza! Castelnouvo with it's market, and train station is very close by. The teenagers were able to catch the train to Lucca by themselves which was great. Lucca is a beautiful old city and very safe.
It was a holiday we will cherish!!

Liked best: The owners were incredibly kind, helpful and easy going. Nothing was to difficult for them. The outdoor area was magnificent!!
