In the north west corner of Tuscany, the green valley of the Garfagnana shelters nature reserves, ancient castles, hill-top villages, lakes, caves and a whole lot of peace and quiet. At the entrance to this forgotten valley is a land of hot springs and rolling hills, peppered with the many villages that make up Bagni di Lucca.

Once people flooded here from all over Europe. Russian princes, Victorian poets, French emperors. They came for the waters, and the gambling. Now, grandeur faded, the old town and its villages welcome the curious, the seekers of spa luxury, walkers, riders and those who like to draw, paint and write. And high above the river, close to the facilities but apart from them, at the end of a private lane, your hideaway awaits.

Gorgeous Hilltop Farmhouse with Panoramic Views


By Laura M on 01-Jul-2017


Staying at Casa Lupini was by far the highlight of our recent 17-day vacation to Italy and Spain. Our only regret was that we didn't plan our trip to stay at this beautifully restored farmhouse longer. The road up to the property is daunting--especially for Americans who rented a small SUV instead of an Italy-sized appropriate small car--but once you are up there it is breathtaking. The first night,Trevor and Christine were there to greet us after an extremely long travel day with a basket of goodies and wine, so we didn't have to venture out to find groceries right away. Once we did go out, we found the quaint little village of Bagni Di Lucca where the river runs through the middle and there are roadside restaurants, grocery, bank and gas station, just what you need but not too commercial. The house itself is tastefully appointed and you'll find everything you need, including linens, washer, kitchen supplies, pool towels etc inside the house and pool toys, chair cushions etc outside in the pool shed. There is no air conditioning, but we found the fans and some open windows keep the house cool at night, better to close them during the day. In early/mid June the wifi worked just fine, even allowed us to stream videos on our devices and use the Apple TV that is in place in the living area. We explored the old Devil's Bridge just a few kilometers away a well as the hilltop town of Barga, but there were many more places we could've gone in the area, had we left ourselves the time. We also found it convenient to visit Lucca and Pisa, where we were able to spend some time with relatives. We highly encourage visitors to check out the picture book Trevor made that shows the house in its original condition before the Hadleys did the renovation. The transformation is stunning. We whole-heartedly recommend this hidden jewel and again, our only regret...not staying more than a week. That said, we do hope to return one day!

Superb Property in Garfagnana


By Dan W on 06-Sep-2016

This beautiful, well appointed, newly renovated traditional house was superbly presented and clean. The owners left a generous welcome pack meaning we didn't have to go shopping following our journey. Outside the infinity pool was a lovely temperature following the summer and had long reaching views down the valley. The wood fired pizza oven was another great touch. Highly recommended for anyone looking to explore Northern Tuscany, Florence, Pisa and Abetone (skiing) all within easy reach.

Italian Hideaway


By Jill R on 15-Aug-2016

WOW! We have just returned from a 3 week stay at Casa Lupini and are already missing it! This review is much shorter than the 3 pages we wrote in the visitors book !! The location of the property is 'away from it all' but not remote and everything you need is within 5-10 minutes of the property. The quality of the house is super and felt like home from home. As a family of 4 (x2 teenagers) we had plenty of space and loved the fact that the kids had their own bathroom whilst on holiday (a rare treat). We explored the local hilltop villages which were spectacular, Barga, Grenoala, Bagni di Lucca and we also had several days exploring in Lucca, just a half hour trip away (so much to see and do). We visited Florence on 2 occasions,drove to Pistoia then caught the train. Gorge walking was a brilliant days activity if you're feeling energetic, be prepared to get wet!! The wildlife around the property was brilliant we sat out in the evenings and were joined by the deer who would come out of the woods onto the terraces at dusk, brilliant! The pool is stunning and is just what is needed to cool off, surrounded by beautiful scenery, we spent many days around the pool and getting the kids to do anything else was a challenge. The pizza oven - give it a go on second try we got x4 fab pizzas, home made pizza dough too! From start to finish the holiday was brilliant, the owners were so quick to reply to any emails or questions prior to our arrival and during the stay. Lots of information at the property and interesting reading material about the area. Thanks Trevor and Christine, your home is wonderful and we are thankful that we were allowed to share it for a short period of time. We will return. Jill, Simon, Adam & Josie Robertson xxxx

Tuscan Paradise


By Feike K on 20-Jun-2016

Being the first guests of the season, we were warmly welcomed by the owners, Trevor Hadley and his wife, who also surprised us with a full fridge, thus preventing us from having to shopping immediately. What to say about Casa Lupini? If you are looking for an exciting city life, do not go there. But if you are looking for a very comfortable hous with a large terrace garden, a fantastic inifinity pool, a stunning view over valley and mountains and a lot of privacy, this probably is the best choice you can make. We (6 adults ) spent two weeks there, late May/ early June and the most difficult choice every day was whether to stay at the house or go out. Nice towns like Pisa and Lucca are in easy reach, but also more nearby villages like e.g. Barga are certainly worth visiting. Shopping is easy in Villa or Fornoli, both a 5 - 10 minutes drive and good restaurants are there as well. We had a perfect time and certainly hope to come back again. Feike and Marian Klein

Peace and quiet without isolation


By Shiona A on 01-Sep-2015

What is not to love about Casa Lupini? Less than 10 minutes drive from town, completely separate from other properties with it's own pool and gorgeous views across the valley, we were sad to leave after a fortnight here. This place is beautiful ... Very well furnished, spotlessly clean, traditional features alongside modern technology (digital TV/DVD/reliable Wi-Fi) makes this an ideal holiday retreat, with owners that are only a text/email away to give you help or ideas. The house was very spacious for our family of four. The children adored the pool. The furnishings are stylish, and we were impressed how well thought out the whole property is. The drive up to the house is initially daunting - but no more so than driving on Italian roads anyway - and well worth it when you get there! And there is always the chance of catching sight of the wildlife - deer, porcupines, dormice - especially at night ... After 2 weeks, it is amazing what we didn't achieve - we strayed as far as Lucca (30 minutes by car) but spent most of the time in the local area relaxing in the summer heat. We all enjoyed 'Canyon Park' (zip wires etc), swimming in the river and gorge walking - but most of all we enjoyed pizza, pasta and Prosecco! A car is essential - but beyond that and a little bit of guide-book Italian, Casa Lupini makes a great base for a very easy and hugely relaxing holiday!

A perfect stay


By Steve on 20-Aug-2013

Six of us, including our two daughters (11 + 9) have just stayed for a week at Rupini House. The place was perfect for us, it's a good climb up to it but well worth it when you get there. The views from both the infinity pool and house are amazing. The house has been renovated and kitted out to a very high standard and everything you require is there. There are loads of places to see in the surrounding area and a week is not enough in our opinion. There are resaurants in walking distance, maybe 10-15 minutes, but it is a good climb back. As it says in the description, the land around is very steep, so young children will have to be well tended. We loved every minute and will definately be back. The restaurant at Granaiola is excellent about a 10 minute drive.
