Casa Paladini is a gorgeous stone cottage set in an ancient chestnut grove in the mountains above Castiglione di Garfagnana. Set back in time and well away from the nearest road, you will feel secluded but not isolated in this haven of peace. The cottage sleeps 2 (max 3) and can be rented on its own or in conjunction with our new yurt tent just 50 metres away which sleeps up to four people - have a look at Wild Camping Paladini on airbnb for description of yurt.

Colm was very helpful, we had bad weather and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it in Autumn, winter as very cold and damp. But I imagine glorious in the summer!

Casa Paladina is like owning your own bit of paradise for a couple of days. The Garfagnana valley is such an amazing area surrounded by both the Apuan Alps and the Appenines, the scenery is different around every bend. The house is tranquil if you want it to, when youre alone it is brilliant and very quiet, if Colm is around there is a gentle humming of people and harmonious activity around. Colm tends to his property with devotion, he cares for the grounds as he cares for your well being. When here make sure to see the Bagni di Lucca and the hilltop city of Lucchio with spectacular views, and canyon through the river(beds) of Orrido di Botri! The walk to Castiglione from the cottage is not for the faint hearted but well worth it! We will recommend this place to everyone who loves the outdoors and a nice getaway. Mark & Irene

This is a wonderful secret hideaway where you can completely relax. The roads are very windy to get there but it is all worth it when you arrive. It's very quiet and peaceful.

The house is just gorgeous - even more than the pictures - and the area is lovely. Our trip was 3.5 weeks, and the few days we stayed here were easily the best and most beautiful. We'll be coming back I hope. Some things: it took us a little time to adjust to altitude. And a big car can struggle a bit on the smaller roads. But really: so fab.

Colm's place was an absolute joy for a stay! His home and location is the real Toscanian experience. I felt so safe and wrapped up in the beauty and comfort of the home & locale. An absolutely wondrous experience for me!

Great spot to get away. The walk down the hill is a nice one and not bad coming back up either. Good pizza up the road!

This place ist really remote and the best possibility to take a (digital) detox trip... even if the Wifi is working!!;-) The pictures are showing the house and property in a very good way. The people around are just adorable and the green countryside and a lot of walking and good Mountainbike/ Downhilltrails are just perfect for a lot of sporty hours! Thanks guys!!!
