Interaction with guests
My husband and I live a few kilometres away and can be on hand as little or as much as is required. I like to welcome and settle in my guests upon arrival but we have a key safe by the front door so even if your arrival is late we have a solution. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the area having lived here for a considerable time and a good selection or maps, tourist information brochures and guide books of the area to insure you have all the information you need to plan a successful holiday.

About the neighbourhood
The Garfagnana is situated in the northern part of Tuscany, nestled between the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan Appennine mountains.
