"Discovering Bagnone's secrets was one of the best parts of our
stay. The villa has played host to some epic ping pong and table football
tournaments, as well as many a sing song. It has also provided an excellent
base from which to explore other cool places like Cinque Terre, "The
Green Valley", Fiascherino & Florence. We felt right at home
in this beautiful villa!
Top tips: 1.Worth eating at the medieval restaurant in Filetto (amazing beef). 2.Buy a lottery ticket in Bagnone."
Paula & Tom, Bree & Marco, Anthea, John, Olivia, Austin, Kath & Tom, Vonnie & Aidan (London)
"Nice area, lots of castles. Very enjoyable 10 days - lots of
pretty villages: Malgrate, Filetto and Pontremoli worth a visit. Lucca
good but difficult to park. Portovenere well worth a visit and is the
hub for boat trips."
Mike, Sandra, Dave and Jenny (County Durham)
"Had a brilliant time! Bagnone is a great place. Loved strolling
into the village for bread in the morning and cycling in the mountains.
The villa is a real find with lots to keep all of us amused - especially
our teenagers. Beautiful weather every day! Thank you for letting us stay
in this beautiful place!"
The Flett family (Orkney)
"Really enjoyed staying here - great space for lots of people!
Our kids enjoyed swimming in the big pool at Villafranca and found river
swimming off the road to Corlaga. Don't miss Cinque Terre. The water is
crystal clear! The staff at the local tourist information office were
very helpful and spoke English. Beautiful countryside - lovely people
- would love to come again. Grazie mille!"
The Harris and Boxalls families (London)
"We had a great time in Bagnone! The house has a great atmosphere,
very relaxing and the garden is beautful for long hours of reading. Lucca
is great, go early in the morning when it's still relatively quiet.
We walked the Cinque Terre Trail - from Monterosso to Riomaggiore - nice walk (approx. 5 hours) and the views are stunning. On the way between Corniglia and Manarola there is a nice pebble beach for swimming.
Go for porcini mushrooms in the hills near Treschietto - we had a big funghi pranzo after. Gavarini restaurant in Mocrone has good food.
Hope to return soon! Thanks for the hospitality and a great Tuscan stay."
Wilma, Hans and family (Amsterdam)

for a wonderful week"
The Moorhouse family (The Hague)
"We have had a great two weeks in the villa. We will miss waking
up to the lovely green hills and the sound of running water from the stream
in the garden. We really have had a fantastic holiday!"
The Stratford family (London)
"We would all, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for a
magical stay in Bagnone. The villa, the town, the people and surroundings
were spectacular... This definitely won't be our last stay."

"Thanks for a wonderful stay - really enjoyed the house and the
evenings in Bagnone... watch out for the fireflies from the balcony in
June - very pretty."

icy plunge pool in the garden."
