Fantastic stay!

My friends and I loved this property. It's very remote up in the hillside but is easy to drive to from Lucca. The pool is amazing and the rooms are comfortable. Dealing with the owners was easy and I received my damage deposit back quickly. I'd highly recommend this property.
Owner's Response: Thank you It's always nice to hear that a holiday at La Polla has been enjoyed.Our only comment would be is explain that our farmhouse is hidden away with stunning views but still only minutes from the village.

Terrific Tuscany Holiday

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 20, 2011
  • Stayed: Sep 2011
Along with friends we have just enjoyed a marvellous holiday in a stunning Tuscany farmhouse style house, La Polla and we cannot recommend it highly enough.
The property was better than the page suggests with stunning views of the gorgeous Tuscany hills in which it sits; sitting by or immersed in the pool really showed the view and it was a pleasure to swim in such a beautiful setting.
Trebbio the village from which you ascend to the house is quiet and peaceful having a lovely restaurant with excellent food at very reasonable prices. we ate there twice walking down the hill to it and back up after eating, a healthy way to work off the many calories of the gorgeous home made pasta! Although we are not in the first flush of youth the walks were no hardship although we would not recommend it to anyone with walking difficulties.
A car is mandatory to ensure easy access to the surrounding Tuscan tourist hotspots, Florence, Pisa, Sienna and the coast resorts of Viarregio and Forte dei Marmi being accessible with one hour of easy travel. Lucca is definitely well worth a visit and is a half hour drive away.
Dining al fesco on the lovely patio was a very Italian experience and was most enjoyable; it felt like being in a movie.
The house interior had a luxurious feel and the whole holiday was five star. If you are looking for a holiday with sun, pool, tourist attractions and superb accommodation this will fit the bill.

Beautiful and well kept hillside house

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 4, 2010
  • Stayed: Sep 2010
The house is situated on the outskirts of a very small village, some 10 minutes walk away, but to get anywhere you would definitely need a car. Private parking space is very close to the house, but it should be noted that the access road is partly steep and not asphalted, and can be a challenge.

The house itself is big, very comfortable and well kept with a large living room with dining area and nice sofas (we were told by the lady welcoming us - not the owners - that the fireplace was not to be used, though), four big enough bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. Two very clean and nice batchrooms. There is no TV-signal and no internet connection, but you can play DVD:s (we brought along for the kids).

The small garden and the two small terraces next to the house are very nice, but unfortunately it was too cold for al fresco dining when we stayed end of September, beginning October.

The best thing with the house is definitely the splendid valley views from the front garden and all bedrooms!

It should be noted that the location is very much off the beaten track. There is a 10-15 minutes drive to the main road in Diecimo connecting Lucca with the Garfagnana. There you also find a train station with frequent connections to Lucca (and some to Pisa). Another five minutes takes you to the supermarket in Borgo a Mozzano. We rarely spent less than 30-40 minutes on the roads to get to Lucca city center. We made Cinque Terre in 2h, Florence in 1h30 , Viareggio (beach) in 1h15 and Piza in 1 h.

The owners are very nice and quick to reply on e-mails answering all your questions. Their private house is situated right next to the property.

I would definitely recommend Casa Castagna to anyone wishing for a nice and comfortable place to stay off the beaten track and the big crowds, but with reasonable distances to major sights. We were travelling with kids (1 and 4), and although the house is great to share between two families, the location is not particularily child friendly as there will be a lot of driving to get anywhere.

And don't miss out Lucca! What a nice lite town!

Review of holiday summer 2010

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 5, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
We found this villa to be very well maintained, in excellent condition and very clean. The villa is nicely tucked away on a hill side, giving the opportunity of a private holiday, but with the village withing walking distance. The views out across the valley are stunning, with a pretty garden at the front, but with a nice very private area at the back with sun loungers and pool. The villa and location is ideal for those wanting to be away from the madding crowd, and looking for a peacful relaxing holiday. However with Pisa being just an 1 hr away and Florence 1 1/2, you can soon be taking in the stunning sites.
Our only recomendation would be to take dvd films with you, as there is no tv signal, this way the kids will have something to watch in the evenings.

The village of Trebbio has some shops and a very good reasonably priced restaurant - La Fonte -well worth a visit. The house is only 10 minutes from Celle/Puccini - the museum of the great composer.15minutes from the famous Ponte del Diavolo(Devil's bridge) and 20 minutes from Bagni di Lucca's thermal springs. The beautiful town of Barga is 30minutes away. Within the town is a tiny walled medieval 'city' which is traffic free, has a 13thc church and wonderful views across the Garfagnana mountains.Other places to visit are: Collodi - (birthplace of Pinoccio's author) Pinoccio Park and Villa Garzoni and it's beautiful gardens.Lucca's old city is surrounded by a huge medieval wall and features some of Italy's finest Renaissance architecture. There are many shops, cafes, restaurants, markets and music festivals.The beautiful city of Florence is 80 minutes by car, and Pisa is more than just a tower - visit the medieval quarter and learn about the Medici family.It is 1 hour to Pisa airport.
