The six bedrooms comprise 5 doubles, (one of which can be made up as a twin) , and a room with 3 single beds. There are also 3 sofa beds if required.
Four of the luxury shower rooms are en-suites, with a 5th shower room not ensuite, but boasting jack and jill basins, with bathroom number 6 being a cloakroom (with wc, basin and bidet).
This spacious, newly renovated modern and pristine place boasts luxury shower rooms, two designer kitchens, 2 dining areas and various living spaces, ideal for a large group, and if you wish you can split the property into a 4 bedroom and 2 bedroom property if you require more privacy between your guests.

Outside there is a fabulous 12m x 6m infinity style solar heated pool, with roman steps extending the size further. The pool area, overlooking wonderful mountain views, has extensive sunbathing areas with plenty of sunbeds (pool towels provided) and dotted around the villa are various nooks and crannies for relaxing away from the group too with a good selection of outdoor relaxing furniture. If you are feeling energetic there is table football and ping pong.
Children love the electronically gated garden and spend hours playing.
For dining al fresco there is a smaller table in front of the villa, and another for the entire group to eat together, to the side on a large terrace, where one can take in the vista whilst dining in style after cooking your meal in either of the two kitchens, or using the large bbq. For those little snacks and coffees, there are plenty of café style tables for you to grab a refreshment in peace from your group.
There is also a chef service, with the owners providing delicious meals on request at very reasonable prices. Why not celebrate an occasion, and stay in some evenings and be served authentic italian food on your terrace?
Set in the heart of the garfagnana this is a rural retreat, but one can walk to a fantastic little restaurant with homecooked food open friday/sat/sunday and there are plenty of places to eat out using your car too.
There is a reason for the wonderful reviews on site since this villa really is ideal for family celebrations, or for couples wanting a little luxury. A perfect treat!
Nb- owners live on site, but have separate entrance, garden and parking area, and they only arrive home late at night, leaving very early morning after cleaning pool. Privacy fully respected as you will see from reviews.

A little about the area
Nicciano is situated in the heart of the Garfagnana, surrounded by lush green countryside and stunning mountain scenery is what real rural Italy is all about.
The mediaeval village is a 5 minute walk way and there is a bar/basic shop for essentials. Just above the village is a little hamlet (10 minute walk cross country) which has a fantastic little family run restaurant where you can dine al fresco on exquisitely cooked home made and home grown food. This restaurant is open from Thursday to Sunday in high season and Friday to Sunday other times.
There is also a good pizzeria which is a 15/20 min walk away (or a couple of minutes by car).
The local village of Piazza Al Serchio with its bars, couple of restaurants, supermarket, train station, river and Tuesday morning market when the village comes alive, is say 3 minutes away by car.
The views from this extremely peaceful property are magnificent - the house overlooks the green and fertile Serchio valley, with views of the Apuane and Appenine Alps.
This really is the perfect location - an ideal place to unwind deep in the countryside, yet close enough to all local amenities, and a convenient base for exploring by car or train.
