We have just returned from a lovely mid week break. Franca was very helpful an kept in contact with me before we arrived. The Farmhouse is lovely and homely with stunning views outside. My children loved the horses and goats and the swimming pool was lovely and clean with a stunning view of the mountains. We had shops near by to buy supplies.

We had the most amazing 5 days in Il Corniolo -- Franca's agriturismo in Castiglione de Garfagnana. Franca was a wonderful hostess -- from helping us find our way at night to giving us homemade jam from wild fruit that grows on her farm. She also gave us lots of information regarding what we can do in the area. The house is exactly the way it appears in the listing. The view -- I will post more later. The kitchen is well stocked. We made many good meals. The people are all friendly. The horses and goats make it impossible to stress -- they are so lovely. My kids took riding lessons and had a great time. While you are far from typical tourist spots, you are close to sites that are unique and off the beaten track -- Grotta del Vento stalactite cave, Verrucule fortress, Castiglione de Gargagnana, and of course, trekking and mountain biking. We want to come back next year and stay longer.
