Please see our historical reviews regarding cleanliness:- We believe that Covid 19, or not, high standards should be the norm.

We always have a chilled bottle of Prosecco and some cold beers waiting for you in the fridge. If a glass of red is your thing we have that covered too. Some basic essentials are supplied but if you have any other special requirements that you would like ready for your arrival please don't hesitate to ask.

The house is set on the hills in front of the Apuan/Appenine mountains in Lunigiana in the Northern tip of Tuscany. Access is via a private road and the property is set in 3 hectares of land providing complete privacy. The land beyond is predominantly woodland. The house was built 10 years ago using traditional methods. The roofs are constructed using chestnut beams. The floors downstairs are stone and upstairs are solid oak. All the doors, shutters and staircase are hand-made. The pool is 15m x 6m. The automatic top can be closed in the evenings to retain the water temperature overnight. The depth is c.1.10m in the shallow end and c.2m in the deep end with a diving board. In addition to the terraced area surrounding the pool there is in total 200+ sq.m surrounding the house, ideal for relaxing and dining. The house has a fast speed internet connection via a fixed cable or wireless. There is Italian Sky including sport and the option to change the language on a no. of programs.

The table tennis table and table football ensure that there's something to do in between relaxing and relaxing!

Days out can be spent walking, in the mountains, visiting festas or trips to the coast including Lerici, Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio. For day trips to the Cinque Terre we recommend the train from Villafranca which goes direct. A fantastic day trip is the 9.14 a.m. direct to Monterosso, a walk around the town, lunch at one of the many restaurants or our friends restaurant on the cliff tops then take the boat back to La Spezia. An aperitivo in the town then the train back to Villafranca/Bagnone.

Heaven on Earth - and a bit more.


By Mette N. on 14-Sep-2020

I am still in awe of how it is possible to create such a amazing place like Ana & Davids house in the mountains near Bagnone...
We had a week of pure bliss - relaxing by the pool, having picnics in the olive grove, dining outside the house on the terrace with the most gorgeous view over the valley and mountains, star gazing until midnight with wine and italian meringue and were lucky to see shooting stars on the clear sky.
Since we were travelling in the shadow of covid19 we spent a lot of time in the house which is spacious, cosy and beautifully decorated. The bedrooms were bright and the beds so comfy and inviting. The bathrooms were tastefully decorated, very clean and with three towels for each person besides a huge and comfy pool towel. The kitchen was fantastic and extremely well equipped; soap for the dishwasher and for the washing machine, handsoap, sharp knives and salt and pepper, coffee - and a bottle of rosé upon our arrival.
David was very helpful and just a text away if we needed anything. He came every morning to clean the pool so it looked nice and inviting for us when we came down to have our late morning swim or for my friends daily yoga session.
We had wto teen age boys in our group and they were both keen on swimming and exploring the mountain streames, rivers and waterfalls in the area, and David knew a gorgeous place besides the one we found ourselves - it litteraly took our breath away and our boys - the grown up included - was over the moon diving and jumping in the river pools.
It felt like a crime to leave and it was with tears in my eyes that I had to leave this little piece of heaven - when I come back I will make sure to stay more than a week.
Thank you so much Ana & David for making our vacation so perfect and unforgettable and for providing such a fantastic service for us in the end of our stay - you are the most perfect hosts and it was so nice meeting you both :-D
Best wishes
The Volstrup family and the Nørgaard family

Mehr Privatsphäre und Ruhe geht nicht!


By Bernadette P.Unterlunkhofen, Schweiz on 31-Aug-2020

Perfekt eingerichtetes Haus mit sehr viel Charme und riesigem Umschwung. Das absolute Highlight ist der grosse Pool mit herrlicher Aussicht. Hier genießt man absolute Privatsphäre bei sehr sympathischen Gastgebern.

The perfect week


By Claus & Family on 22-Aug-2020

Anna and David are lovely hosts making you feel welcome from the first moment. The property offers everything you can imagine for super relaxing holidays. Both the house and the huge pool are very clean. There is nothing to worry about. With any issue you might have you can always rely on Anna’s and David’s help. We very much enjoyed our stay. Downside: we already left after one week.

Exceptional house,amazing views,phenomenal host


By Bob I. on 30-May-2019

Exceptional house, phenomenal views, amazing host created a truly perfect vacation for the 2 couples that stayed in the villa early in May. Each couple prepared the reviews below:
Our time at the villa was everything a vacation should be. Beautiful, relaxing yet exciting and overall one of the best vacation we have ever been on. The Villa is amazing, it feels like home immediately, the town is out of a storybook; the people could not be friendlier. We can’t wait to go back.
Bob & Bev
One of our best vacations ever. Villa was beautiful, very clean, view was stunning, pool area just gorgeous -wish we could have spent one day chilling by the pool but the weather did not cooperate. The sitting areas outside just fabulous with an all around panoramic view of the valley. Great community everyone very friendly and the owner went out of his way to make our stay memorable.

Incredibly pretty , stunning views , perfection .


By Anwen Evans on 15-Sep-2018

We had high expectations for this holiday as we were celebrating a 60th birthday with the family and we had spent several hours trying to find the most suitable place .
David kindly met us in the local village and we followed him up to the property.
When we arrived at the property we were literally blown away by the most incredible views. They really are spectacular .
However , the villa was not to disappoint.
It is a beautifully renovated building and it is clear that quality fixtures and fittings have been used to create this idyllic villa .
Every room has been beautifully decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable .
The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of storage . Brilliant cooking facilities and a huge fridge to keep all the wine chilled . There is a huge dining table both indoor and outdoor .
We had the most amazing memorable week . David would be round early morning to clean and maintain the pool and kindly got the water to the right temperature for the not so brave of us . The pool is huge and very clean .
There are comfortable sunbeds and plenty of pool towels .
David was always available for tips and recommendations for good restaurants etc but was also exceptionally respectful of our privacy .
I could go on and on about this place and I cannot express how amazing the place is . We are definitely going back as it really is perfection .

Breathtaking views, privacy, and serenity


By Susanna P. on 31-Jul-2018

This property is truly spectacular. The thing that first strikes you when you drive up is the serenity and privacy - you are well removed from your nearest neighbor - and the incredible views of mountains and the valley below, a view that changed from morning to night as the light changed. The pool was amazing and our family spent many happy hours swimming, relaxing, and reading by the pool. The villa is immaculate - it was spotless on our arrival and had everything a family of 6 needed. The area surrounding the villa could not be more charming - the town of Bagnone is beautiful and the locals were exceptionally friendly. We particularly enjoyed going to town for morning espressos and pastries. There was a wonderful Monday morning street market right in the middle of town where we bought wonderful meat, cheeses, and fresh fruit/vegetables. We took many walks of varying difficulty in and around Bagnone and the surrounding towns. We hiked in the Apennines and had easy day trips to Lucca and the Cinque Terre. Finally, the owner David is an amazing host - he cares deeply about the experience of his guests and does whatever he can to make the stay perfect. He was remarkably responsive during the booking process and readily available throughout the stay to provide recommendations for restaurants and activities. This property far exceeded our high expectations and we will make every effort to return as soon as possible.

Welcome to the place you never wanna leave!


By Christine L. on 30-Jul-2018

We are renting houses for our yearly summer vacations, mainly in Italy and Spain, over a decade now. And we had rather high expectations for this property due to all the nice reviews and pictures. Good lord! People say pictures tell more than thousand words. Well, they can never ever meet the epiphany we had when David (Knox, the owner) took us through the property gates and onto the drive way to the house. It was the first time that my expectations have been exceeded in every single instance, by miles.

Some specifics why I think this must be one of the best locations globally. Starting with THE VIEW! Like a canyon watcher you could probably spend the whole day sitting on one of the several different terraces and feel the atmosphere shifting minute by minute.

Then the pool. Perfectly designed in terms of safety and cleaning features and moreover it's wisely equipped for the guests’ different needs: diving board for the athletic ones, two different type of sunbeds (one for the readers with sunshield, one for the chillers with soft mattress), shower and a “sunport” that provides semi-shade for yoga sessions.

The kitchen is for us probably the most important place indoors, especially during vacation. Hence, I am often annoyed how little attention summer house owners pay to that key space of social interaction. Not in this house! Two fridges (one for the beverages and one for food, if you like), a gas oven, a kitchen island with bar stools, a collection of actually sharp knives (!), large frying pans for infinite pasta cooking pleasure etc. Moreover, the kitchen has entrances to the house’s two main terraces and you're always passing the fridge...

Part of the kitchen of course, even if located outdoors and perfectly positioned for a GT sundowner, is the charcoal grill. Even if you’re less of a grilling freak than I am, a sufficiently sized dry-wood suited grill with three different grilling grate elevation levels doesn’t leave anyone’s eye dry.

But all these fantastic features of this place appear in the end almost profane compared to the service level and kindness the owner David Knox brings to the table. Whatever questions or considerations you have regarding the property or the area, David is only a call or a message away with solid and inspiring input. David seems to have friends in and tips for any given town, which we followed with an almost 100% hit-rate.

We will not wait for the next worldcup David, we'll be back sooner!

Thanks, Dino and the Swe

Outstanding


By Sabine F. on 27-Jun-2018

We just had the most relaxing and wonderful time! We didn't expect the villa and the surroundings to be that beautiful and luxury (even thought that some of the comments could be bought ) but now I am sitting here in a grey Vienna nothing but sad that we didn't book 2 weeks!

David was the most patient, helpful and laid back host!

We will definitely come back!

Thank you

Amazing stay with family


By Jacqueline E. on 29-May-2018

We had a truly amazing stay, words (or photos) do not do justice to the views-nothing will beat sitting on the veranda watching an electrical storm roll through the valley beneath us.
Our party had 4 children under 5 years old who were able to safely explore the house and the grounds.
As we had children we treated ourselves to the local chef (Stefan) who is superb and cooked us a range of local dishes. We have been recommending the property to friends and family-we intend to return again and thank you for your hospitality David!

Exceeded our expectations


By Phil J. on 04-May-2018

The villa itself had everything you could think of. The weather was not kind to us so spent time inside and the log fire was wonderful. The rooms were spacious and spotless and the kitchen had all the utensils you could want. In the warm weather there would be plenty of seating for sun lovers as well as those wanting the shade. The pool and diving board are fantastic it was just a shame that we could not benefit from this as the weather made it to cold. Would love to visit again in the Summer. David was friendly and knowledgeable of the area and on hand if needed. Overall -highly recommend.

Ein Juwel in der Toskana


By Christian R. on 04-Oct-2017

Nachdem sich das Eingangstor das erste Mal bei der Anfahrt geöffnet hat, erblickt man die ruhig gelegene Villa mit der fantastischen Aussicht. Das Haus ist mit sehr viel Liebe eingerichtet und die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche übrig. Sämtliche Beschreibungen entsprechen der Realität. Die Außenanlage ist sehr gepflegt und bietet mit dem 15x6m großem Pool ein absolutes Highlight auf. Unübertroffen ist aber die Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft von David und Ana, die uns viele wertvolle Tipps für Restaurants und Ausflüge gegeben haben. Wir haben für 2 Wochen mit zwei Familien (4 Erwachsen und 4 Kindern) dieses Paradies erleben dürfen und würden jederzeit wiederkommen. Ein Juwel für jeden Toskana-Fan.

Wonderful relaxing holiday


By Una J. on 18-Sep-2017

David, the owner met us in Bagnone and drove up with us to the house. Upon arrival, we all just stood there and stared, it couldn`t have been more impressive. On the other side of the valley there was an amazing thunderstorm to watch and the grounds and swimming pool were even better than the photos had suggested.
The house inside has loads of room and is very charming and traditional. We had a few Barbecues on the big terrace outside and cooked our own Pasta and Pizza in the very well equipped kitchen inside.
So many places to visit, so much to do, but also just relaxing by the pool (weather permitting) was beautiful. Having four 20+s with us, it was great for them to be able to make a noise and not worry about any neighbours complaining.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are definitely planning to make it back and stay there again.
Thanks to David and Ana for making our stay so memorable.

Simply Stunning!


By Thomsons & Family on 23-Jul-2014

This villa is simply stunning. The interior has been finished to a high standard. It has a modern feel however incorporates the traditional features that you would expect from a Tuscan villa. The oak beams, staircase and floors all add to its charm. The kitchen is very modern and has every appliance that you would need...especially the American style fridge and separate wine chiller! On arrival the villa was pristine clean. There was a very generous welcome pack left for us which included wine, beer, juices, bread, cheese, meat and eggs. In fact, eggs were provided daily from the owners chickens located close to the villa. We were also able to make use of the abundant fresh produce grown on the vast grounds of the villa. The views at the villa are simply breathtaking. We have been to a range of villas in Italy and around the world with fantastic views, but the views from this villa have to be seen to be believed. The views can be appreciated from all of the rooms within the villa as well as from the various outdoor areas including the pool area and patio areas. The villa is secluded which provides peace and tranquillity however for practical reasons a car is essential. All in all we had a wonderful time, so pleased I found it!

Superb!


By Andy W. on 30-Nov-2013

Beautiful house in a fantastic location set in acres of vines and olives. Private and yet close to the old town of Bagnone, so also convenient. Helpful owners willing to help arrange trips and make useful recommendations about restaurants and sights. A perfect holiday.
