From an early age I wanted to 'live' in Tuscany, and I'm very attached to my roots, as I was taught by my parents and my grandparents.

Growing up then I met my wife, and has strengthened my and our Tuscan spirit, to the point of wanting to share with others. From our shared passion was born the idea of ​​buying a house and planning our dream ...

Gemignani Lisa purchased this cottage in 2000

Ever since we started to renovate the first brick of the house, our dream was to create a place where our guests can feel at ease, and entering, breathed an atmosphere of genuine familiarity.

For us, the Tuscany is part of our lives: it is the air we breathe and the food we eat. And it's nice to know what it means to the tourists 'live' Tuscany ....

Each house is divided when the house has its own characteristic:

Casa Cielo has a sun terrace protected by stone walls that ensure the tranquility and superb views.

And 'the angle that best characterizes it .......

Casa Terra has a Tuscan kitchen with stone fireplace. A room truly superb.

Casa Pietra as well as being beautiful and in Tuscan style, has exclusive sauna and hot tub.

While Casa Il Nido is ideal for a romantic break in two

HOME'S WHERE THE HEART IS-OUR RETURN "HOME!!"

Home's where the heart is-Our Return "HOME!!"
  • 5 of 5
A year has passed and yes we did keep our promise to return to Tuscany. Not alone this time, but with the rest of the family...our 2 daughters and my mother in law.
Casa Terra was our first and ONLY choice.
Lisa, Luca and the lovely Casa Terra were awaiting our arrival and once again they welcomed us "Home".
When we returned to the Netherlands last year, my wife and I could not stop talking about the Beautiful house we stayed at and its most charming owners. We promised to return someday with the children to share Tuscany with them. We had hoped for the Summer vacation but circumstances did not permit. In Autumn this year we finally landed in Bologna and drove on to Boveglio, stopping to visit beautiful places enroute.
We spent one beautiful week at Casa Terra and once again enjoyed the hospitality of our host and hostess. We also once again experienced the beauty of Tuscany and our city visits included Firenze, Siena, Lucca to name a few. We also visited the caves in the Garafagnana , castles along the way and took a long drive through the Chianti area. Italian countryside at its best!! Spectacular vineyards and olive orchards!!! We indulged ourselves with delightful Italian cuisine and wine. Pity it all had to come to an end… like all good things do. We had the privilege of meeting their son and getting to know them better.
Our children and my mother in law, together with us truly enjoyed this one week. We are looking forward to our next visit.

We thank you for a wonderful time dear Lisa and Luca. We will cherish these memories for a very long time.
Casa Terra holds a very special place in our hearts..as do its owners!!!

Till we meet again!!!!

A DREAM OF TUSCANY, A 2 1/2 MONTH STAY *****

  • 5 of 5
The owners of this lovely well maintained and updated old stone house, did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and convenient for our needs. The house is cool, comfortable, offering amenities, exactly as described, to fit the needs of any short or long term travelers.

The kitchen had every possible amenity to accommodate our daily cooking although a fabulous restaurant is not far away in Benabbio. We had our own garden on the patio which we joyfully tended each day, enjoying fabulous fresh herbs and zucchini almost daily. The tomatoes have begun to ripen now as we prepare to leave.

The wireless Internet worked surprisingly well for our stay only going out a few times for a short time, which was important to us as professional travel writers:

We would recommend this interesting and well appointed home, not only for its comfort but for the care we received during our stay. For our extended stay, the owners found us a local cleaning lady, Santina, who came once a week for a very reasonable price to clean the entire house.

There is a clock tower next door that chimes on the hour and half hour. Surprisingly, although light sleepers by the first night, it never woke us up. Across the road, there is an old church with a bell tower that chimes every Saturday evening around 5 PM for 5 or 6 minutes. Its delightful, never failing to attract our attention. We posted a video on YouTube if you'd like to hear.

What a beautiful summer we spent here, overlooking the massive gardens, hearing the songs of birds we'd never known, of watching the season change and seeing the loving care the owners took of maintaining the houses, including this one, that have have in Boveglio, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy.

As retired world travelers with much world to see, I doubt we'll come back but we highly recommend this property to those seeking a quiet and charming respite from the trials and tribulations of daily life in bigger cities.

Thank you, Lisa and Luca. We'll always remember our time at Casa Sotto La Torre.

PEACE AND BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
Have just returned from an 11 day stay at this wonderful farmhouse. The house is beautifully furnished. It feels like you are stepping back in time and yet has every modern convenience you could require. The views from the windows are breathtaking and were just as compulsive on the last day of our stay as the first.
The drive up to the village is much easier than I thought it was going to be and the drive down to Bagni di Lucca has magnificent views and is great fun round the hairpin bends. Even for someone who suffers terribly from vertigo like myself!
The beautiful mountain village lets you feel remote from the world but it is really easy to access all the sights of Tuscany. During our relatively short stay we visited Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Chianti country, Pistoia, Monticatini, Florence (of course) and many smaller places besides.
All in all a wonderful place to get a true taste of Tuscany. Highly recommended.
Luca and Lisa, thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable. The best of luck with your new venture and every success for the future - Kindest regards - John and Kay

EIN ABSOLUT ENSPANNENDER URLAUB

  • 5 of 5
Der Urlaub im Casa Terra war wirklich sehr erholsam.

Durch die Abgeschiedenheit konnte man super entspannen und auch die Dorfbewohner haben uns das richtige Urlaubsfeeling vermittelt. In Italien läuft halt alles etwas gemütlicher.
Mit der Aussatuttung waren wir sehr zufrieden. Die Betten waren kuschlig weich, die Zimmer durch dicke Steinmauern wohl temperiert, und der Grillplatz hat zum Verweilen eingeladen. Es fehlte nur die Kaffeemaschine zur perfekten Wohlfühlatmosphäre.
Die Vermieter waren wirklich zuvorkommend, die Kommunikation fiel zwar trotz einiger Sprachbarrieren nicht so einfach, war aber gerade deswegen noch viel herzlicher.
Besonders empfehlenswert ist ein Besuch in Lucca um das italienische Flair richtig zu geniessen und in der Windgrotte sieht man mal wirklich etwas Nichtalltägliches, und kann der Sonne für einige Zeit entfliehen.
In jedem Fall ist dieser Urlaub für alle, die dem alltäglichen Großstadttrubel mal entfliehen wollen, ein super Tipp.

Vielen Dank nochmal Lisa und Luca für diese wunderschöne Zeit.

Un abbraccio a tutti......

A WONDERFUL TUSCAN HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This is for "Casa Terra" - First of all: The owners are SUPER nice! We didn't meet them in person unfortunately, only had email contact. But they sent their mother/mother-in-law to welcome us, and she was also SUPER friendly! She spoke only very little English, but also a little French, and together with our little Italiano we got along well.
When we arrived, we were amazed by how wonderful everything looked! The pictures don't do the apartment justice, it looks much better in real life.
Everything was spotlessly clean, and we found a bottle of wine as a welcome in the kitchen.
The view from the windows is gorgeous. It's nice to sit out on the little balcony that is accessible from two of the bedrooms.
The rooms are spacious and have a lot of storage space for clothing, all very nice chests of drawers & closets.
The decoration of the whole apartment shows how much love and thought the owners invested in it.
There is lots of space to hang out & relax, in the apartment as well as in the very spacious and romantic garden.
We had a large spider in our bedroom, but it lived peacefully and quiet in the corner next to the chest of drawers, waiting for flies in her elaborate web, so we shared the space with her. :-)
There are so many places to explore and enjoy, we wouldn't know where to begin to list them up. We would highly recommend to explore some of the wonderful hills & little villages such as Benabbio (great restaurant in the square, very Italian experience!), San Quirico, Vellano, Pontito... to name only a few.
Lucca was beautiful, as was Pescia, we also drove down to Volterra & San Gimignano which was a wonderful road trip with fantastic views over Tuscany.
But we were always happy in the evening to return to our wonderful Tuscan home, where we cooked Italian style on the big gas stove & also used the oven.
The interior of the kitchen is beyond words. Antique lovers - you will be stunned! :-)
What else can we say? Our dog was very happy and felt welcome, also in the little village by the way. Very friendly people, many of them own dogs and greeted us very friendly.
Our children (16, 14, 8) felt very much at home, they loved the apartment from the first moment, after each of them got to pick one of the wonderful bedrooms as their own.
Lisa and Luca, thank you very much for a wonderful holiday that will always remain in our memory!
We can only recommend this holiday home to the highest. It was one of our best vacations ever.

EIN TRAUM IN DEN HÜGELN DER TOSKANA

  • 5 of 5
Nach einer kleinen Serpentinenfahrt von Lucca aus erreicht man das scheinbar kleine Boveglio (nach einem Spaziergang merkt man, dass es nicht nur aus zwei Häusern besteht). Das sehr liebevoll eingerichtete Haus "Casa sotto la Torre" hat unsere Erwartungen mehr als übertroffen. Der Ausblick und die unglaubliche Ruhe laden zum Entspannen und Wohlfühlen ein. Der großzügige Garten, der Grill und der Sonnenplatz stehen unbegrenzt zur Verfügung. Der Garten verfügt ebensfalls über unzählige italienische Kräuter, mit denen das Kochen noch mehr Spaß macht. Zum Thema Kochen: die Küche ist im rustikalen Stil eingerichtet. Der Kamin und der Gasherd sind ein Blickfang. Die Küche gehörte mit zu unseren Lieblingsplätzen im Haus. Das Wohnzimmer ist liebevoll und detailreich im weißen Landhausstil eingerichtet. Die restlichen Zimmer sind großzügig geschnitten, auch das Bad konnte sich sehen lassen. Die Bilder lügen also nicht.
Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir sehr herzlich empfangen. Ich kam aus dem staunen nicht mehr raus, so schön war es.

Die Städte Pisa, Lucca, Livorno und Florenz sind gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Bis zur Küste ist es auch nicht weit. Wobei gesagt werden muss, dass wir uns auf "unserem Berg" am wohlsten gefühlt haben. Mit ner Flasche Wein auf der Terrasse und dann den Sonnenuntergang und die unglaubliche Stille genießen. Ein perfekter Urlaub.

Liebe Lisa, lieber Luca, wir danken euch von Herzen für die schöne Zeit bei euch! Es war einer der schönsten Urlaube, die wir zusammen verbringen durften. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen...bei so einem tollen Haus und Ausblick! =)

Alles Liebe!

Owner's Response: Io e mia moglie abbiamo acquistato il casale molti anni fa.
Ricordo che stava cadendo a pezzi e non aveva l'aspetto che adesso.
Ma ce ne siamo subito innamorati.
Il nostro sogno era quello di far tornare a vivere il casale, attraverso il nostro lavoro, ma sopratutto attraverso i turisti che, dicevamo, sarebbero venuti a soggiornare nel casale.
E questo è successo: anzi, è successo molto di più. Tutte le persone che trascorrono le loro vacanze a 'Casa sotto la torre' ne rimangono affascinati, e respirando un'atmosfera positiva e familiare, si sentono come se fossero a casa loro.

The farmhouse' Casa sotto la torre', is located at a height of 780, is like a gem set in the nature of Toscany. The house have be made out of an old farmhouse from the late 1700s, and have been recently renovated keeping the characteristics of Tuscan architecture intact, with original features such as beams, stone walls and visible terracotta ceiling tiles. The original furnischings have been skilfully restored and completed with arte povera furniture, giving the two houses a unique atmosphere, where the old the new are perfectly integrated, giving you at the same time all the necessary commodities.

They offer possibility to visit all the major cities of art such as Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo...not forgetting the wonderful mountain area of Garfagnana, that's so rich in old medieval towns. Nearby, in the town of Collodi, it's possible to visit the park of the world's most famous puppet Pinocchio.... an event that the youngsters shouldn't loose.... and a unique occasion for the not so young too!!!!
