Sehr schöner Ort
Originelles Haus recht liebevoll saniert an herrlichem, abgelegenem Ort.
Hier hat man wunderbare Ruhe, kann aber gleichzeitig schnell viele Ziele (Lucca, Carrara, La Spezia, das Meer, aber auch sehr schöne kleine Orte in direkter Umgebung) erreichen.
Man kann aber auch direkt vom Haus aus in einer herrlichen Landschaft Wandern.
Leider gab es keinerlei Sonnenschirm oder ähnliches, so dass der Aufenthalt im Garten / Hof über Tag kaum möglich ist.
Internet und Fernsehen funktionierte nicht, was allerdings der Erholung nicht unbedingt schadet.
Die Sauberkeit im Haus lies stark zu wünschen übrig. Wenn man als erstes den Kühlschrank sauber machen muss, ist das kein guter Urlaubsbeginn...
Wir haben uns trotzdem sehr gut erholt!
The amenities of the house were clearly appreciated, and the location in what is beautiful part of Italy. I am glad these guests enjoyed their time at the property.
There are sun umbrellas stored in the cellar, for use on the patio or courtyard.
There is a TV in the lounge but it is not connected to an aerial; it is available for use only with the DVD player and a selection of DVDs is available.
Wi-fi is only available by prior arrangement and an extra fee is payable, as outlined in the description.
The cleaner goes through the house before each guest arrives, so the problem on this occasion is unusual and unfortunate, for which I apologise.
location typique très agréable et paisible
Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine dans une location très joliment rénovée avec goût. Rien ne manque dans le gîte bien au contraire et nous avons fortement apprécié les 2 terrasses, l'une à l'ombre le matin et la seconde, le soir avec une très belle vue sur la vallée. Nous n'oublierons pas le très bon accueil de toute l'équipe la Casa Turchetti, restaurant situé à 50 m de la location, où nous avons pu déguster de très bon repas dans un cadre tout aussi agréable.

Uniquely beautiful house.
A simply stunning holiday home. The location was wonderful, deep in the beautiful Tuscan mountains, but it didn't feel isolated. Tranquil, and incredibly peaceful, the entrance to the village is unique. It really feels like you're leaving the rest of the world behind when you walk down the tunnelled entrance to the village. The house is gorgeous and tastefully modernised. A private courtyard allowed us to have many lovely lunches outside and I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to have an early morning cup of tea on the balcony, watching the sun move across the valley, and listening to the local church chiming the hour.
Casa Turchetti, the B&B just up the path from the house was wonderful, the owner there very helpful, and the food outstanding! We mainly relaxed in the house, there were hundreds of books to choose from, and games and puzzles to entertain you. We really enjoyed the train ride to Lucca, there were some spectacular views on the journey, winding through the mountains. Lucca itself was gorgeous, and hiring a bike and cycling round the walls was one of the highlights of the holiday.
Beautiful setting; lovely views.
This house is in a beautiful setting, in an area with much to see and do -- or you can just take it easy and look at the stars! The house is very well equipped and comfortable. It is attractively decorated and has lots of space for a family of 5. There are nice books and board games to enjoy. It has a friendly lived in feel to it. The best thing, though, has to be the view from the balcony.
In the area, we enjoyed visiting Bagnone and Filletto (medieval town and village), eating at Mountain Verde restaurant in Apella (just above Tavernelle), swimming in an Olympic size outdoor pool in Villefranche, eating at Beatrice (best pizza ever) in Monti, visiting Camano castle and walking up in the Appenines.
We will be going back!
I am delighted the house and the locality proved to be such a hit with this family. The opportunties in the Lunigiana district to enjoy local restaurants, mountains, and historic places without the crowds or expense of more wellknown Tuscan destinations are a secret to be shared. This review was a summer break, we look forward to the local chestnut, wild mushrooms and wine festivals this autumn with availablity for late bookings.
Wonderful first visit to Tuscany
A wonderful first visit to Tuscany. The view from the lounge balcony was simply breathtaking. The house was nestled in a small village, beautifully renovated sympathetic with its age. Having said that we were not sure of modern conveniences and creature comforts. The property was in good order, clean and well presented.
I am 84 years old and do have some mobility challenges. I didn't find either the walk (approx. 200 metres) to the house from the car park or the house itself presented me with any problems.
The house is well placed to visit many tourist attractions. Only 40 mins from the Lericia and the Cinqueterra. We took a boat trip and visited villages along the coast.
In addition, we were only an hour and quarter from Parma, Lucca and Pisa, all of which we visited. The churches and cathedrals were stunning and the leaning tower at night time unforgettable.
The walks in the vicinity look to be varied, my husband took a walk from the back of the village to the top of the local hill. It was quite strenuous, but I'm sure if my 87 year old husband can make it, most people will. The reward was stunning views of the local area.
My first and hopefully not my last visit to Canto di Maggio.
Thank you. I will definitely be recommending this to friends and family!
Cattagnano is a well placed Italian village for those who like the mountains, renaissance towns, and the coast in Tuscany/Liguria. So I am delighted it was such a good holiday for such a wonderful older couple with young at heart approach to life. We try to make sure the house is up to the best of standards for all those who stay.
What a gorgeous cottage! The owner has sympathetically renovated and restored this old cottage so that is has both modern luxury facilities and beautiful traditional features. It is spacious, clean, comfortable and welcoming - with an extensive collection of books! A very helpful and friendly local English-speaking man from the B+B in the village is on hand, not that we had any issues. The views from the balcony are absolutely stunning and we spent many an hour sitting there, admiring the views, with glasses of local vino. The medieval village was unlike anything I had ever seen before and it was wonderful to explore its narrow alleyways and tunnels. A truly spectacular spot! We would strongly recommend this cottage for an authentic, rural get-away! Many thanks!
I am delighted this group enjoyed their time in the house that caught my imagination when I bought it 6 years ago. The Italian "borgo" or medaeval village in the mountains in the summer is a dream come true. Thanks.
