We really enjoyed staying in casa olga! The place is beautiful and relaxing, the view is breathtaking, the apartment was very clean and the pool well taken care of. But, what really made the stay extraordinary was Paolo, the best host we ever had on airbnb. He was very helpful, charming and made us feel at home. We arrived in Sillicano at 1:30 in the morning and Paolo stayed up late to pick us up, which was really helpful since we were very tired from the drive. One night, Paolo made pizza for all guests and it definitely was a night to remember. Thank you Paolo, we would love to see you next year! We would totally recommend staying at Paolo's.

If you are looking for a real Italian experience: this is the place to be. A wonderful house, a beautiful view on the mountains, a great swimming pool and a very nice host... we had a great time here! Casa Olga is not very large, but snug and authentic. Paolo made our stay unforgettable. He is passionate about this villa, and that is contagious!

Grazie Frank innanzitutto per l'apprezzamento della Villa Benedetta. Mi fa molto piacere che sia tu che Maxime e Paul abbiate compreso quanto sia bella l'aria che si respira in questo luogo a me molto caro. Grazie anche per gli apprezzamenti che fanno sempre molto piacere, per quanto riguarda l'accoglienza da parte mia di Voi gentilissimi ospiti!. L'area circostante, le montagne ed i paesaggi come pure la quiete e tranquillita' che hai giustamente descritto è il contorno della location. Spero vivamente che un giorno possiate tornare e proseguire con le varie escursioni e visite alle grotte, e a molte altre cose da scoprire nella meravigliosa terra di garfagnana.., avete lasciato un bellissimo ricordo di voi, arrivederci e saluti e ringraziamenti a voi tutti, Paolo L.

Ho lavorato nell'amministrazione di un'azienda lucchese per 20 anni. Nel 2011 ho ho deciso di cambiare vita dedicandomi al turismo. Sono comproprietario - assieme ai miei due fratelli - di Villa Benedetta che appartiene alla mia famiglia da secoli. Ricevo ospiti da tutta Europa con i quali spesso è nata amicizia. Svolgo questa passione con grande entusiasmo cercando di soddisfare le esigenze degli ospiti. Mi piace la sana cucina locale, molto apprezzata da chi ha soggiornato a Villa Benedetta.
