Area Guide
The word Tuscany conjures images of olive groves and vineyards, fine food and wine, romantic farmhouses lined with cypress trees and of course the sun set over Florence. Tourists are drawn every year by these beautiful images they see in glossy magazines, travel guides and through film and television. Many visitors can be forgiven for thinking that Chianti, Siena and Florence encompasses all Tuscany has to offer, however this is not so, and although these areas are enchanting there is much more to discover. Lunigiana offers a truly unspoilt corner of Tuscany and an inspired destination for the Italian traveller. The most Northern tip which borders the colourful Gulf of the Poets. The nearby Versilia coast overflows with sea side charm and is within easy reach the impressive city of Lucca, rich with Italian architecture and culture. In order to really understand Tuscany it is essential to experience its many contrasts and only then will you discover its true spirit.
Lunigiana is an area rich in history and tradition and set amidst magnificent scenery. The generous hospitality and relaxed pace to life make this a perfect destination for those wishing to escape the rush of modern life. The nearby Gulf of the Poets has attracted many writers, artists and film makers over the years. The quiet cosmopolitan coastline still retains its authenticity and charm. Excellent transport links provide easy accessibility to many of the centres of both Tuscany and Liguria.
If you have a passion for Italy and a desire to explore the less beaten tracks, then Lunigiana will not fail to impress. The only way to appreciate all that the region has to offer is to see it with your own eyes. We are sure that after your visit this will be a place you find difficult to forget.

Stayed Saturday 30 June 2012
The villa and annex were lovely and suited the needs of 11 people perfectly. Close enough to amenities, but peaceful, tranquil location. The description and photos were very accurate. We were well looked after and if an issue arose the onsite caretaker was on hand to resolve it. Two issues on arrival: the villa hadnt been swept or dusted properly and the bedrooms hadnt been arranged as requested, but caretaker soom resolved the latter. Two suggestions: the welcome basket was most appreciated, but it would have been useful to know in advance that there was a weclome basket on arrival and what was in it. As arriving late Saturday afternoon when most shops are shut on a Sunday we shopped enroute to checking in at the villa and duplicated many items. Also a gas barbeque would be useful as cleaner and would not have to dispose of ash in a dry region which could well be a fire risk
Owner reply:

Thank you for your review and all your feedback. Your comments are very important so that we can maintain standard but also make improvements every year. A manager has now been appointed to check the property after the cleaners have performed their duties. It can sometimes be challenging for cleaners to prepare houses when guests depart late or arrive early leaving them little time during changeovers. In any instance when something has been missed the cleaners are available to return to the house on the same day. After guest comments this year we have decided to offer guests with an optional shopping service prior to their arrival. As you say guests are very appreciative however many items are wasted and it is much more preferable to have the items you require. The supermarkets in Aulla are open on Sunday morning and later in the afternoon. A gas BBQ is being considering for 2013. Thank you again and Im pleased you enjoyed your stay at Casa dell Angelo.
