“Fabulous Stay at Casa Della Vista”
Reviewed July 16, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

If you want a taste of genuine Tuscan life in tranquil surroundings with stunning views where you can relax and chill out to the max, be sure to book Casa Della Vista.

This small rustic farmhouse - with no TV and no internet access - has all the facilities you need for a self-catering holiday away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. (Mobile phone signal is good, should you feel the urge to phone home).

The weather was fantastic and the locals were very friendly. Down the hill in the lower part of Sorana is a restaurant called Trattoria da Sandrino where you can get amazing food and, if you mention the owner of the house, you get a discount. We ate ourselves to a standstill over 3 hours and only paid EUR 40! We walked it all off exploring the valley and then headed back up to the farmhouse and lazed around the pool. Heavenly!

The owner provides a ring binder containing information about everything from golf courses to water parks within a 50 mile radius, which was very helpful. We took a one day trip to Florence by train, which was very straightforward. It only takes an hour from Pescia station and costs about EUR10 each, return.

Casa Della Vista is the perfect hideaway to relax, unwind and re-charge your batteries. I'll definitely be back!"

“Romantic and Idyllic”
Reviewed June 4, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I go back to Casa della Vista on a regular basis since first going there in 2007. My favourite time of the year is either spring or autumn, I have not been in summer yet, but am most certainly planning to.

Casa della Vista is a gem, the house has a wonderful medieval loook and feel to it, but has all the amenities one can wish for. Main bedroom has an enormous and comfortable bed, the other rooms have either a settee or a sofa bed, which makes that the house can accomodate up to 7 people.

It is small, cozy and the highlight outside is most certainly the view from the house. As it is on the top of the Sorana hillside, with no houses in front of you, the whole valley lies at your feet. The way the sun rises from the left of the valley to the right proves for incredible lighting of the forests in front of you.
The highlight inside must be the fireplace. Many nights with a bottle of prosecco, just talking and enjoying the silence have been enjoyed there for many centuries, and I am sure that if you're looking to get away from the daily routine, stress, and noise of life as we know it, this place will give you back romance, sense of nature and just total relax.

It is most certainly also a perfect base to visit nearby touristic places such as Lucca, Firenze, Pisa and the many shopping outlets.

Make sure to reserve a table at Sandrino's, at the bottom of the village, before going up... The food there is sure to blow you away. Every time again.

Casa della Vista is a fixed item on my annual calendar, and I am sure it can be on yours if you go there once. I love the place!

The dimensions of the pool have been changed on the description to 15' by 8' - thanks for pointing this out. this size of pool is still plenty big enough to accommodate a family of 4 splashing around. If the filter issue had been reported, we coud have fixed it - not having a working filter will make it difficult to keep the pool clean. We have found that the air conditioning unit is more than adequate to keep that room cool during the hot summer. We have never had any trouble with young children staying at the property and our experience is that the olive groves provide great adventures for them. We will make sure that the tracks past the house are strimmed in future but there has never been an issue with anyone being attacked by snakes or wild boar. However, as described in the house summary, it is located in a hillside village in northern Tuscany. If local wildlife is not something guests are comfortable with, then this is not the property for them. The electricity has been checked and circuit breakers replaced and the cooker handle repaired. There are four chairs in the under house storeroom and four more wooden chairs in the house which can be moved outside when there are more than 4 guests dining. There should be no need to try and use a deckchair. The house is not described as 'a luxury villa' - it is a rustic Tuscan farmhouse. As most of our guests find, it is the location and quiet which enables people to have a calm, relaxing holiday. Thank you for the rest of your comments
