Stayed in the Villa Penna in September 2012. We were a party of four using the two connecting bedrooms. The villa is beautiful, sympathetically decorated and furnished by the owner Leonardo. The view from the gardens is amazing and the perfect place to watch the sun go down with a glass of local wine.
Leonardo is incredibly hospitable and helpful despite his poor command of English (no worse than our Italian). He introduced us to the local restaurant, ferried our luggage through the streets in his Smart car and even took me on a personal tour of the locality including Barga.
We only ate breakfast in the villa but the local grocery store was brilliant, providing a home delivery service for the items we purchased.
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Tuscany and would really recommend the Villa Penna with the one caution that it is a little remote but worth the drive. mehr
