Perfetto


By Tim Coupland on 12-Nov-2019

Just as described, a perfect tranquil spot with the most incredible views. The property was very well equipped and had everything me and my grown up family needed for a relaxing holiday. This included lots of lovely details such as flowers around the house, a generous welcome basket and enough local wine to sink a battle ship. Even though the weather was mixed there was still plenty to do and lots to see in the local area including walking, sightseeing and restaurants. We managed a couple of days by the pool and had one perfect evening making home made pizza and cooking it in the outdoor wood fired oven. Finally a word on the hosts, responsive, communicative and extremely helpful - not only responded the following day to a minor repair needed, but helped with us finding a wine tasting experience. What more could anyone need. Highly recommended!

Living in a coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK, we usually gravitate towards the sea for holidays, and are probably tough customers to satisfy, scenery-wise. As our first venture into an inland ( for us..!) venue, and Italy, Casa Natalina did not disappoint. A lovely, down-to-earth villa, we had everything needed to allow us to enjoy our week in comfort, and with all the facilities we have at home for day to day living. There were huge amounts of outdoor space available - photos understandably emphasise the pool and balcony areas, but there is also a lot of amazing wildflower meadow and many fruit trees. The Garfagnana is spectacular, densely wooded mountains soaring up to the sky all around..Nights around a wood fired barbecue admiring the view were followed by amply supplied games and wine around the big indoor fireplace. Yes, it's around 2 hours from Florence etc but... Arriving late at night, it seemed to take a long time to negotiate the winding roads which access Casa Natalina. Then we had to stop, to allow a porcupine to cross the road, At this point it all began to make sense...

Photos don't do the view justice!


By Jane W on 17-Dec-2018

The panorama from the house is stunning. The pool is lovely and we wished we were staying longer. We thought there was a pizzeria within walking distance but there isn't so you need the car to go out to eat. Lots of hillside villages and pleasant walks and not too far from places like Florence or Lucca for a day trip.

Wonderful


By Sue & Neil on 20-Jul-2017

We had a lovely stay celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, the villa was great with everything we needed and the lovely new pool, the views stunning. We visited lots of local villages and enjoyed some superb walks. We followed the advice and recommendations provided by friends of Tuscany and appreciated all your guidance. Wish we could rewind and enjoy it all again!, we will just have to come back someday. Thank you Andrew and Susan for making our special holiday unforgettable.

Wonderful relaxing holiday


By Maggie Dunn on 18-Jul-2017

Case Natalina was a lovely house, a little quirky in its layout and we all kept going to the downstairs bathroom instead of the stairs which became a family joke. The new pool is a triumph, Remo and Massimo keep it looked after and were very thoughtful in not hammering fencing when the baby was asleep. The situation is so beautiful that we hardly went out, just essential shopping and a trip to Corrine across the valley where we had a fabulous view of the house. It was a little disappointing that we couldn't walk to a restaurant but that in no way diminished our enjoyment of a truly great holiday. We did go to Luca on our way home which is a super place. One tip though, leave the car outside the walls! All in all a great holiday and we hope to return.

Lovely farm house with private pool, Wi-Fi and complimentary wine, stunning view


By Chris Robinson on 08-Jun-2017

We just had a week at Casa Natalia - my wife, me and our two teenage boys. It's a really nice old house, in a little collection of houses, really well furnished with a lot of charm, in an absolutely stunning location. There are incredible mountain views all round and the excellent new pool helped us enjoy the heatwave! Andrew was very helpful, the local area is beautiful, the local food is great, this really has been one of the best places we have visited anywhere in the world - it's peaceful, incredibly beautiful and very well maintained and set up. First class!

Very beautiful. Although off the beaten track but very nice clean house with great garden in a nice area. Nice kitchen, super living room and the garden is a dream. A great welcome package was there when we arrived for us. This is a very great gesture.

Bliss


By Jane on 18-Aug-2016

Susan and Andy 'Friends of Tuscany' are the perfect hosts of their charming house in the most perfect location. Their experience as travelers as well as hosts means that everything has been thought of leaving you free to relax, explore and enjoy this most beautiful area. I have been visiting the Garfagnana for several years and each year the area unveils a new treasure while I also delight in the familiar. Best bit, picking fresh figs for breakfast after a morning dip in the pool, worst bit, leaving.
