Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

The property was a perfect choice - clean, spacious, well stocked, beautiful surroundings - 'heaven on earth'.

The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. They put themselves out to make sure your stay is all you want!

There is so much to do in the Garfagnana - eat, shop, sightseeing, hiking - beautiful history, but then you could just relax by the pool and enjoy the magnificent views.

I can highly recommend this property.

A real gem"

  • 5 of 5

We are just home from a gorgeous week spent in the apartment. Stunning views and close to all amenities and so much to pack into our stay. Very quiet, clean and private. Pool is gated so very safe. We will be back! A real Italian experience!

From the Owner

La Casa Rosa is my family home where I was born and grew up before mattying Benito and going to Scotland. It used to be the local grocer shop until 1990. Recently it has been converted into a B&B (3 bedrooms) by my sister in law Ilva who lives in the premises with my brother and our mother Lidiana. The downstairs apartment has been upgraded and is now available for rental from 2011.
