“Amazing mountain escape”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Our family of 2 adults and 4 children (aged between 7 and 14) had the most amazing time in this well equipped hillside cottage. The views are stunning, especially from the pool. We couldn't bring ourselves to leave the cottage; we spent most of our trip relaxing poolside whilst watching eagles and swifts soaring overhead.
Location is good with some good restaurants nearby and plenty of day trips within an hours drive. We visited Lucca, Pisa, and Barga. This region is hilly and the cottage is set high above the valley, which was a struggle the first time we approached the cottage for our people carrier packed with luggage. Don’t let this put you off. Its worth the effort and less of an issue when you are familiar with the approach.
This is an amazing cottage in the most perfect setting, I can only assume the lack of reviews is an attempt to keep it a secret for the fortunate few who have had the pleasure of visiting this cottage.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Te Kawa!! Everyone says it is the most wonderful retreat, and we get lots of repeat bookings, and we also can't understand the lack of reviews, since the guest book is full of praise!
We hope to be able to accommodate you again.
