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.

Maybe the most magical place I’ve ever been. Colm was so kind and gave us great tips on walks and where to find food. If you are looking for a spot to get away while still be quintessentially Italian look no further. Would come back in a heartbeat!

We were sorry we stayed here. It was closer to camping which we do enjoy doing normally. The ticks are plentiful both on any path to or from the house and in the tall grass surrounding the house. The house has historic character but it is cold and dark, requiring a fire if you…

So sorry not to have been there to greet you Keith - we had to rush to Ireland for a family emergency. Shame about the rain too - maybe try our area again when better weather forecast ....

A truly magical stay in paradise. The cottage overlooks the mountains which gives a spellbinding view. The cottage is cosy with a good amount of space. The host was so kind and extremely helpful. You can see a lot of love went into this place. I can't wait to go back already!

Colm’s cottage is amazing and so is he. We didn’t have a car, but he was willing to pick us up and drop us off from the train station (and it was a beautiful ride in). The space itself was one of a kind, best Airbnb I have ever stayed in. The views were amazing and the cottage wa…
