About the property

Apartments in Antognano, Garfagnana, Lucca, Tuscany - Peaceful Location, 10 Mins Walk To The Villages

We present you a brief overview of images of the four apartments situated in “Agriturismo Tripala”, in the lovely Northern Tuscany. Our four apartments can each accommodate from 2 to 6 people. In total we have 20 beds available for a large group booking if required. All apartments have breathtaking views of the mountains and historic hilltop villages. We have a beautiful swimming pool shared with the guests of Agriturismo Tripala (15mt x 6mt) open mid May to mid September. The pool has a backdrop of glorious mountain views set in the tranquil gardens of Tripala with sunbeds, deckchairs, tables and garden parasols, For the kids there is a small play area and table tennis.

Agriturismo Tripala is a countryside oasis ideal for family holidays. You can relax by the swimming pool, sunbathe in the garden or go mountain biking or walking in the spectacular Apuan Alps. Situated in Garfagnana, Agriturismo Tripala is an ideal base if you want to visit the historic towns of Tuscany, including Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Genoa. The coast is only a short journey by car or train so you can explore the beautiful fishing villages of the famous Cinque Terre, Lerici and Porto Venere and swim in the azure waters. In the nearby medieval villages there are several pizzerias and restaurants serving tasty local cuisine and wines made from grapes ripened on the nearby hillsides. The owners, Carlo and Silvia, speak English and are always on hand to help if you need any advice

About The Owner

We are a family of four, with two girls aged 18 and 20. Silvia is a teacher in a local school, and Carlo runs the family farm. We grow organic olives and wheat. Many cats and one dog are part of the family.

We love to welcome guests to share Tripala and all it has to offer.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1974

Why The Owner chose Massa Carrara Area

You can be sure of a very warm and friendly Italian welcome to our family home, to enjoy a taste of real Italy and in particular Garfagnana and its local traditions and foods.

It is ideal for a quiet and relaxing holiday away from crowds and tourists. We invite you to "tastings" at the farm when we cook local home made food twice a week...Carlo is also a good chef !

What makes this apartment unique

The fantastic view of the Apuan Alps, just stunning...the Garfagnana region...the coast is only an hour away, food, wine... Carlo & Silvia the friendly owners.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6 from Bavaria. My husband, I and our 4 kids (ages 8 to 16) recently were guests of Silvia and Carlo. Our hosts gave us a warm welcome. We found this apartment bright, clean and nicely decorated. It was well stocked and equipped with everything our big family needed, maybe even more .We all enjoyed the pool, which was meticulously maintained. The panoramic views of the mountains, coupled with the private, tranquil surroundings made this the perfect place for much needed quiet retreat. I was a treat to not be right in the middle of all of the "typical tourist destination chaos". BUT, that being said, it was just a short distance to travel to famous cities like Pisa and Lucca, or the coast. We enjoyed our shared evening meals, with delicious homemade Italian cuisine, and lots of interesting conversation. We were able to learn a lot about their style of living, in this particular part of Italy. Great vacations always end too quickly ! Thank You to Silvia and Carlo, for everything!!! We will be back again, one day !!!

Tranquil rural retreat

  • 4 of 5

We spent an enjoyable 6 nights in Piano West with our daughter and her boyfriend. Beautiful Alpine views from the house, patio and pool. Lovely setting in quiet unspoilt area. Carlo and Sylvia were wonderful hosts. They wined and dined us for 2 of our evenings. Car essential, roads not for the faint hearted! 20 min walk up steep path to Metra quite challenging but worth it for the local dairy selling cheeses and salamis. Generally not a touristy area with little English spoken but Carlo and Sylvia would gladly intercede. Wonderful meal in La Spina Fiorito. 1.5 hr drive to Cinque Terra and Lucca - both well worth a visit for a day each.

Further Details:

The Ligurian and Tuscan coasts are close by, so you can explore the unspoilt fishing villages of the Cinque Terre, laze on the sandy beaches of Versilia or shop glamorous Portofino. The Garfagnana has many pretty medieval villages that hold colourful festivals in summer. You can sample the local cuisine and wine, listen to live music and dance the night away Italian style! Lucca is only 70km away and is well worth a day trip. Marvel at the medieval and renaissance architecture, take a bike ride around the city walls or simply pass the time of day in a pavement cafe', sipping a Prosecco. Pisa and Florence are a maximum 2 hours drive from Tripala. Spring and autumn are the best times to visit and see the architectural and artistic treasures. Autumn is the ideal period to visit the numberless villages and historical towns, to walk in the charming autumn woods, and to rest and get the last tintarella, enjoying the warm sun, in your beautiful terrace overlooking the spectacular Apuan Alps. A wide choice of local specialities are offered in this period by the local restaurants and osterie, and can also be savoured during the various country celebrations in the nearby villages. In mild weather, you can easily reach from Tripala the Tirrenian sea beaches and villages, to enjoy long peaceful walks (i.e. Cinque Terre trekking path) and excellent Tuscanian and Ligurian fish cooking, out of the crowds of the high season! The closest bank, gas station and pharmacy are in Casola in Lunigiana (6 km from Tripala).
