Overview

Description

Capanne1

The entrance to this apartment is on the front of the cottage, where the terrace is situated, furnished with a large wooden table for outdoor breakfasts, and chairs and stools to sit in the sun. Two doors allow you to enter the spacious interior.

On the left is the cooking area, including a fridge, oven and gas-stove. In the centre is the dining area with a small fireplace between the two entrance doors, and on the right is the living area with a comfortable bed couch.

A wooden staircase leads up to a double bedroom with a small bathroom and shower. To the left of the kitchen, a step lower than the rest, is the second double bedroom with a large bathroom and shower.

This apartment is very spacious comfortable and welcoming, also due to the fact of perfect use of wooden materials for the interior.

About David Saisi

Ciao,

I'm David and from 2005 I manage Le Capanne holiday house. Before I worked as an HR manager in a TLC company. From 2005 to now I have seen about 1000 persons in my property and each one has helped me increasing my love for Garfagnana area. From 2013 I'm a mountains guide and I manage the Battiferro park in Fornovolasco: we offer canyoning for families and a lot of fun.

See you soon

David

David Saisi purchased this apartment in 2005

Why David Saisi chose Media Valle del Serchio

The first time I saw The huts in 2005 fell in love with this place with spectacular views of the surrounding villages and mountains. Since then every time I come here I'm happy with my choice

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the surroundings, the appartment & pool but most of all: Mrs. Saisi, David & Daniele who went out of their way to hand us all sorts of info & really made our stay into the perfect holiday. We've enjoyed the trip with lunch to the monastery. They did their utmost to make sure we had a great time. We really felt like part of the family with all the personal attention of the Saisi family.



Please make sure that during your own stay you get to know the surrounding villages as well for they offer great food & nice people all around! Italian life at it's best!

The Viareggio and Versilia coast is about 75 minutes away by car but can also be reached by bus or train. The Cinque Terre is also within easy reach by car or by train (about 2,5 hours).

Travel:

Nearest airport is Pisa approx 1 hour drive away. This gives you the choice of flying from locations throughout the UK and also allows you to take advantage of the many low cost airlines that now fly to the region.

Although there is train service to Barga-Gallicano (about 10 km from the property) we would suggest that a car is essential.

Once you arrive, with so much space and such peaceful surroundings it is hard to tear yourself away but the close proximity to many of Italy's major attractions including Lucca and Pisa make this an ideal base from which to explore.

Barga, a mediaeval walled town with summer music festival and beautiful 11th century cathedral, 20 km. Lucca, 'city of art', has cultural events, antique markets and many fine shops, 50 km. Pisa, with its leaning tower, 'Campo Santo' and riverside palaces, 45km.

Super location, super relax

  • 5 of 5

Bellissima location. Curata, pulita, rilassante. Le Capanne sono un complesso veramente bello e ben tenuto, con un magnifico giardino, alberi da frutto, lavanda profumata. Sono andata con la mia famiglia (con una bambina di 3 anni) e siamo stati benissimo. Il padrone di casa, Davide, è persona ospitale e accogliente, sempre pronto a dare informazioni e suggerimenti per visitare la zona e coccolare i suoi ospiti...perfino portandoci le paste a colazione! Ve lo consiglio. Noi, spero, ci torneremo il prossimo anno!
