PEACEFUL & PANORAMIC LOCATION 1 HOUR TO FLORENCE, PISA, LUCCA & BEACH

Vellano Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, sun terraces for al-fresco meals. Pool 10 mins away.

Casa Verde is at Vellano, a hillside village sitting grandly in the high narrow wooded valley above the town of Pescia, near Lucca, Tuscany. The house has green shutters & can be seen as you approach the village from the road below, sitting aloof among the chestnut trees on the mighty hillside above you. It looks lovely from there. The Apartment has an old fashioned charm with many old stone and wood features, echoing three centuries of habitation and family life. The house has a fantastic view of Vellano, the valley below and on to Pescia. The terraces rise above its old garden where we grow many types of fruit and vegetables for our ourselves and guests. The Apartment consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, sitting room, WiFi, washing machine with two sun terraces for al-fresco meals and sunshades. We welcome children to Casa Verde & provide a safety gate, highchair and cot. For winter guests put your feet up by the wood burner & relax. Visit Casa Verde and discover a quiet, gentle and friendly part of Tuscany close to all the glorious attractions of the Renaissance.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets considered
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only

We moved to Casa Verde in 2010 from Yorkshire in the UK to make a new life in a new country after 30 years in local government. We bought Casa Verde and set about renovations and improvements to the house and land. It is such a joy to live here in both winter and the early warm springs, autumns & hot summers. While it has set us a challenge it has all been worth it. We hope to see you soon.

Darren Hackett purchased this apartment in 2010

You will not regret visiting Casa Verde as we provide peace and quiet while being close to the attractions of the The Renaissance, outdoor activities, the best food & wine in the world.

We provide a personal service to all our guests, while respecting their privacy and provide help and advice when needed.

A wonderful escape

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at Casa Verde for a 6 night stay after a week and a half of touring Rome and Venice and it was just what we needed - an incredible view in a tranquil setting. The apartment itself was wonderful and well appointed. Darren was very helpful and was always available if we needed anything or had any questions. I would not hesitate to recommend Casa Verde to anyone travelling in Tuscany as it is a great location to see many of the significant sights in the region.

Stunning Casa Verde

  • 5 of 5
Casa Verde is set in the most amazing location, the views are simply stunning. I doubt you will find a better view anywhere in the world! The accommodation is equally as wonderful, perfect for our family of five. Everything you need is provided, with Darren and Malcolm gracious hosts. Vellano is a lovely small village, with two good restaurants and a small shop for your daily provisions. Would recommend to any one who wants high quality accommodation in a lovely Italian village setting

Lovely apartment, stunning location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent an all-too-brief 3 nights at Casa Verde in late summer. We've stayed in some lovely locations over the years, but I don't think we've ever come across such a well appointed, well equipped and beautifully decorated holiday apartment - and the views are simply mesmerizing. Vellano is a charming village in a stunning setting and manages to be off the beaten track while still very easy to access. I would highly recommend Casa Verde, and Darren and Malcolm are the perfect hosts - friendly, helpful and accommodating while also allowing guests enough privacy to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings without feeling overlooked.

Quiet and peaceful Casa Verde has fantastic Tuscan vistas. Leading from the Apartment door is a spacious terrace with stunning panoramic views of six of the Dieci Castelli (the Ten Castellated villages), furnished with tables, chairs & parasol to enable you to dine al fresco. The Casa Verde benefits from a local pool, with a shallow end perfect for the children. There is so much to see in the surrounding area during your stay with excellent connections to Florence, the Leaning Tower at Pisa, Lucca, the beach at Viareggio and much more.

There is WIFI, free tour of local attractions, fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden when available.
