About the property


Tripala farm is a countryside oasis, ideal for family holidays. You can relax by the swimming pool, sunbathe on the terrace or go mountain biking or walking in the spectacular Apuan Alps. Situated in Garfagnana, the farm is an ideal base if you want to visit the historic towns of Tuscany, including Lucca, Pisa and Florence. The coast is only a short journey by car or train so you can explore the beautiful fishing villages of the Cinque Terre 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

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.
