Villa
Francesca is a lovely fresh, clean and modern 2 bedroom detached property situated in the depths of the Italian countryside. This spacious private house has been renovated with love and care, and has a well equipped brand new living/kitchen/diner, a luxury bathroom, and two good sized bedrooms (one double, and 2nd bedroom can be double or twin and has 2 children beds). Whilst furnished in a modern style, there are traditional twists with the odd piece of period furniture, beamed ceilings and internal shutters on the windows. The overall effect is of a very relaxing airy holiday home… The private pool is also brand new, and there is a BBQ, sunbathing area, relaxing zone, and eating area for dining al fresco. Relaxing rural living!

A little about the area: Francesca is situated just 600m from an ancient traditional Italian mountain village which has a bar and shop, which is ideal for essentials and sitting with a drink taking in local life. The property is also less than 5 minute drive from the larger village of Piazza al Serchio with all facilities including traditional shops, supermarket and Tuesday morning market when the small village really comes alive. There are also some bars, a couple of restaurants a river and a train station for easy exploring. Whilst in the depths of the countryside, the house is well located for exploring the local market town of Catselnuovo which is a 20 minute drive, the gorgeous and popular mediaeval town of Barga which is a 35 minute drive and the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca which is say 1 hour and 10 minutes away. Pisa, with its leaning tower is a 90 minute drive, and one can visit Florence in 2 hours. The famous Wind Caves are a 45 minute drive. Closer to home there are plenty of little historic villages to visit, many of which have local festas in the summer. There are also the lakes of Gramalazzo, Vagli (with its hidden village submerged by the water) and Pontecosi, and some guests love to swim in the river. Francesca is also ideally located for visiting the local Fortress at Verrucole which is a good afternoon out, with stunning views and some interactive activities for the children. Also close by is the Buffardello tree climbing and zip wire park (ideal for both adults and children of all ages with a variety of runs) where one can take a picnic and spend the entire day in the welcome shade of the forest. The real beauty of this area is the dramatic mountain scenery, and the hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, endless picnicking opportunities, and the pure peace of a non touristy holiday ...... TOURIST TAX - Do note that there is a local stay tax applicable at €1 per person per night, up to a maximum of 5 nights. This does not apply to children under 14.

Heart of Tuscany
Set in a working forest with spectacular views this is a real gem. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, a real home from home. With a short walk down to the local village there is a small shop that gets you the essentials but not much more. Eating out is more of a challenge with a car a must to reach surrounding towns where there are restaurants and shops aplenty. This for us was a perfect property both in its seclusion and it’s style. NB I stress a working forest so long mornings snoozing in bed isn’t really an option.

Fantastic week!
Beautiful location in the hills with views across the mountains. Peaceful and relaxing by the lovely pool. The house had everything you would want and was clean and spacious. It was nice to be able to walk to the village for groceries, a drink at the bar or an ice cream - very friendly. The owner was very helpful, always at the end of phone and helped us with our travel plans to Cinque Terre. We had a fantastic week ... and the weather was lovely!

A lovely house in lovely setting
We had a lovely week staying in Francesca's home in Casciana. We enjoyed exploring the numerous mountain villages and towns of the Garfagnana. We enjoyed trips to the fabulous Cinqueterre , Lucca and the adventure park at Buffaradello. Our family particularly loved relaxing in the pool and cooking on the BBQ and taking in the lovely views around the house which was very well equipped. It was nice to be able to walk to Bar da Maria for gelato and drinks. We had a very pleasant stay in a relaxing environment and would highly recommend it .
