What Past Guests Are Saying
Margaret and Andrew
Perfect family holiday
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Villa Bertagni. It was the perfect family reunion for us from australia and our inlaws from the UK. We were blessed with terrific weather and spent the majority of our time lazing around by the pool, exploring the local shops and eateries, and having many family barbecues in the balmy evenings. Dieter our host was sensational, with wonderful recommendations, making restaurant bookings, assisting with train timetables, etc. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.
A Wonderful Holiday
We were made very welcome when we arrived and were shown round. The Villa has to be seen to be believed, an interesting house just outside Castelnuovo, and sympathetically restored and improved, with private pool, and extensive grounds. Castelnuovo is a historic town, worth exploring itself, but also within easy reach of Lucca, Pisa, Florence, and Bagni di Lucca (hot springs), all of which we visited. Viareggio and other coast towns also within reach, with miles of golden sand. In the other direction we found a drive up into the mountains was well worth it.
Bearing in mind this was a self-catering holiday the only downside was the smallness of the Kitchen, but then there is also a bar-b-que.
But in Italy who needs home cooked food?
All this and Italian food and wine and friendly hospitality, well worth it.
It is a lovely, sumptuous, luxurious place for a holiday.
The villa Bertagni is a lovely, sumptuous, luxurious place for a holiday. I stayed there with my grown up family towards the end of July. The weather was perfect, the swimming pool heavenly, the location blissfully quiet. It`s beautiful, we all loved it and wallowed in its luxury and comfort. The villa is wihin easy reach of the sea,e.g Forte Del Marmi The scenery is spectacular. The ancient town of Castelnuove is very near and has all the amenities needed, - restaurants, shops, a wonderful market, music and theatre.
Niki Steinke was endlessly helpful,cheerful and charming. No-one could have done more to ensure that our stay was trouble free. It was a pleasure to meet her and to deal with her. We look forward to repeating the experience
