Hi I´m Vala! I am an olive farmer in the hills above Lucca. I love everything italian but i am a thoroughbred Icelandic viking just the same-interesting combination. Hope to see you in Italy!

Valgerður Backman purchased this cottage in 2004

My cottage in Pescaglia valley was our reason to come to Italy in the first place. We bought it as our summerhouse in 2004 and renovated it ourselves with many trips back and forth from the land of Ice and fire. How much fun!! You can see some of the renovation pictures on this website: http://tenutaadeo.shutterfly.com/pictures/8

In our minds this is a perfect little spot to enjoy peace and quiet but still be able to visit all the great sites in the north of Tuscany, the most beautiful place in Tuscany in my opinion!!

Great house in wonderful location

The house is secluded and private. You hear birds and a little stream nearby and you're surrounded by nature (in fact, sometimes a little nature pops in!). There are plenty of great places nearby, not least Lucca, which is full of great sights and gelati. Down the road (walkable) from the house is a very good restaurant - we went twice during our week.
Better air conditioning to counteract the very hot August nights would have made this house perfect for us.

Premières vacances en Toscane.

Vacances en famille très agréable et très calme dans cette jolie petite maison typique de la toscane. L'album photo de la restauration est très intéressant et nous permet de mieux apprécier le travail réalisé dans ce petit coin difficile d'accès. Cette région est vraiment superbe avec la pittoresque ville fortifiée de Lucca ou l'on peut passer des heures à errer dans ses rues piétonnes, surtout à la fraîcheur du soir. Chaque petit village est une carte postale, nichés au cœur d'une nature préservée. Mais gare aux insectes piqueurs ! Mieux vaut s'équiper en crèmes et autres produits répulsifs. Mer à proximité mais bondé sur les zones non privées. Ne pas raté l'incontournable cité de Pise avec sa célèbre place des Miracles, ou les touristes s'efforcent constamment de retenir la tour. Un petit bémol par rapport à l'accueil de nos voisins italiens, trop souvent froids et distants, mais ce n'est pas une généralité.
Merci à Vala pour ses échanges de mail enrichissants et amicales,ainsi que pour son dévouement.
Merci à Farah pour son accueil chaleureux (elle parle français) ainsi qu'à Vicky.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour dans cette maison authentique, toute en simplicité. Si vous cherchez le silence et le repos, c'est l'endroit idéal!
Ciao !!

Thank you for the stay at your lovely cottage

Dear Vala,

We had a fantastic time and the area was beautiful. The only downside is that we should have stayed for 2 weeks not 1!! The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed and a few we didn't in the shape of a few scorpion visitors - thank you for warning us about them!!

Vicky and Farah were very helpful and knowledgable about the area - thank you to them for looking after us.

Visited lots of places - Siena, Florence, Pisa and lovely Lucca. A fabulous first trip to lovely Italy and I hope we will return.

Thank you once again!

Fantastic location

We spent a week in this beautiful restored stone house. It was absolutely amazing, with fireflies by night and geckos by day. The house is perfectly located with only a 20 minutes drive to Lucca and a fantastic restaurant just down the road.

The quit nights on the patio with a glass of nice Tuscan red wine is beyond description.

I would most definitely hire this house again :o)

Lovely Little Hideaway

We really enjoyed our week in August 2009. The weather was great so we didn't move far from the fab pool in Bagni Di Lucca. The restaurant in the nearby village, can't remember the name but it's the only one with a little shop was lovely. The house was well equipped and charming in it's Tuscan style. We would have liked a fact file in the house that listed nearby restaurants, places to visit, good drives etc, that would have been very handy. The owner, Vala was so helpful and even lent us her iron!
All round we would recommend this house, if you like unspoilt countryside and peace and quiet, it will be perfect. Nearby Lucca is worth a visit especially to cycle around the walls, but beware the beaches on the coast, where you do get shooed away unless you have paid, so stick to the pool in Bagni, chairs are free the sunloungers are a little extra.
Have a happy holiday.

Casa Casciani is located few 100 meters from the historic village of Celle dei Puccini in the Pescaglia valley. The vacation house for rent sits on a hillside facing south admidst the chestnut trees. There are 3 restaurants in close proximity to the house, the small grocery shops in the towns up and down the valley and the next supermarket is 10 away. Situated just 25 min from the walled city of Lucca, the lost gem of Tuscany, and only just 30km from the luxurious beaches in Versilia. Florence and Siena are within easy reach and Pisa airport is just 45 min away. The Tuscan skiing resort is Abetone, about an hour's drive with very nice slopes for intermediate skiers. For lovers of enduro riding the Garfagnana valley is heaven. There are organized trips in the area and it is a perfect opportunity to mix with a holiday before or after an incredible riding experience
