A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN IN THE TUSCAN HILLS

  • 5 of 5
We flew into Pisa about lunchtime, picking up our Hertz car,and had an easy journey to Trebbio via Lucca using our Tom Tom. The property, nestling into the steep hill behind, was bathed in sunshine when we arrived. The views down the valley were stunnng.
After looking around we found everything as stated in the property guide. Plenty of room everywhere for our party of friends and relatives.
The pool beckoned immediately followed by drinks on the terrace. A car was essential not only to get to and from but to enjoy the locality to the full. The local village provided a touch of Italian family cooking and we are at this lovely place several times during our week.
There are many places to visit, Luca certainly demands one day of your stay.
All in all a great place to chill out and lay about with a good book.
I would fully recommed the property.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING FOR HOLIDAY HOME

  • 4 of 5
Stayed as a family of 7 adults. Is in a stunning location. A top a hill overlooking a beautiful valley where the only sounds are the water of the stream below and song of the birds in the trees (plus occasional car and dog bark but both rare!). Waking up to that view is fantastic.
Car needed to get there and to get about. We flew into Bologna, for cheaper flights, and the drive is fairly straight forward on the motorway. is 10mins walk down hill, with pleasant restaurant, shop and bar. Supermarket is only 15mins away by car. Walk back up hill at night (after a restaurant trip) well worth it to witness the firebugs.
Home is very nice, well converted farmhouse, comfortable and in keeping with its tradition. Clean and well presented. Mattresses are a little tired but comfortable. Owners very helpful via e-mail and local greeter very flexible (and helpful) when our arrival was delayed.
Best activity was sitting in the sun with a glass of wine, enjoying the view. Nice to have a BBQ too. No TV reception but did not want it. Good to have DVD player to watch the odd film of an evening. Car trip to Lucca (Pisa also drivable) and train to Florence also fun with great architecture... and ice cream!
Recommend for a relaxing, quiet holiday with proximity for plenty of sightseeing if wanted. Would give 4 1/2 stars if possible!

Owner's Response: We are delighted about the great holiday experience whilst staying at Casa Castagna.We take on board the comment concerning the bed mattresses although all beds apart from the en-suite beds had new mattresses 18 months ago,so these en-suite beds will be checked out ASAP.There is a TV but only for DVDs but it is possible TV will be available in 2013.

The village of Trebbio has some shops and a really nice reasonably priced restaurant-La Fonte-well worth a visit and great pizza's to eat in or take out. The house is only 10 minutes from Celle/Puccini-the museum of the great composer.15 minutes from the famous Ponte del Diavolo(Devils Bridge) and 20 minutes from Bagni di Lucca's thermal springs. The beautiful town of Barga is 30 minutes 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 its 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 75 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
