Overview

Pescaglia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4/5

Casa Cristina is a restored cottage set amongst olive groves and vineyards on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Fiano and is approached by a tarmac road. It has its own off-road parking immediately by the gate. The cottage has its own garden within 1.5 hectares of olives, vines and open grassland to which guests have access. The English owners live next door and are always on call to help you or offer advice during your holiday. There are some lovely walks through sweet chestnut woods in the immediate vicinity of the house.

Fiano Village: The village of Fiano is one kilometre downhill from Casa Cristina where there is a restaurant and bar and a small general store with a good range of items for sale including fresh fruit and vegetables. In the village there is also a bar/pizzeria, another trattoria and a baker who bakes on the premises.There are also several other restaurants serving excellent Tuscan food or pizzas within a 15 minute drive. The nearest supermarket is about 15 minutes drive down the valley where there are also 2 banks with ATMs, a post office, a petrol station and other shops.

The swimming pool: The swimming pool (10m x 5m) which is unheated is open throughout the season and is shared only with the owner. The pool is 1.2m deep at the shallow end and 1.6m deep at the deep end and has internal steps. It is surrounded by paving and has two sun bathing terraces with loungers, large sun umbrellas, and comfortable garden furniture. The view from the pool down the valley to Lucca and towards Pisa beyond is arguably one of the best in Tuscany.

SIMPLY WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Cristina is in an idyllic location, high on a hill with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside, with Lucca in the distance. It is ideally placed for excursions to the beautiful cities/towns of Tuscany or, if you prefer, just relaxing by the lovely pool in peace & tranquility.

The house is very comfortable and is very well equipped with household items; a real home-from-home. If you feel the need to engage with the outside world, good speed wifi is available. You have total privacy but the hosts, James and Christine are are on hand with a wealth of knowledge should you need any information about places to visit, restaurants, shops etc.

My husband and I had a absolutely wonderful holiday here and we highly recommend it. The only negative comment we can make is that we did not stay long enough! We shall definitely return!

Second sejour et toujours un grand plaisir.

  • 5 of 5
This year was our second stay at Case Christina.
We found again the same quality than we did have last year.
A family will have all they need in the house to make their stay perfect.
We did prefer visiting the around rather than the long walk next to the house but this is a personal choice.


Cette année était notre second sejour dans cette merveilleuse résidence.
Le plaisir était toujours au rendez vous.
La qualité des équipements de la maison est toujours la et surtout les propriétaires aiment à partager leur bons conseils avec les visiteurs.
Une location a recommandé a tous.

A quite spot with perfect views

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is just perfect for a family or a couple. Our children ages 12 and 9 had a super week, enjoying walks in the area, playing board games, visiting Pisa and Lucca and using the pool. You can do as much or as little as you like. We loved walking into Fiano, buying ice creams at Valentino's and doing local walks. If you feel like driving further afield there is also plenty to do. A highlight was hiring bikes and cycling on the walls around Lucca.
The cottage is very well equipped including a washing machine.
Our hosts really were exceptional both providing information about the area and also assisting us with some medical tips, as my husband pulled a muscle. They went the extra mile in making sure we had everything we needed.
I would strongly recommend this peaceful spot in a beautiful garden that is very well maintained.

Fantastic home in a Tuscan paradise

  • 5 of 5
First things first the photo's do not get even close to showing the beauty of this fantastic property and its gardens and view, The owners keep this property and its pool and garden to an extremely high standard. It is airy and spacious with superb outside facilities that make any stay perfect. The owners take great pride in supplying all the information required to visit local and further afield Tuscan attractions from Lucca to Florence and the Versillian coast.
They are friendly and attentive without being intrusive and are a large part of making this property an excellent choice for a short or long stay.
As far as facilities are concerned the house is very well equipped, the kitchen is great and the two bathrooms ideal for a family or two couples. Outside there is a lovely private shaded eating area with a barbecue on hand for your use, The WIFI is quick and very useful for people that need access to the web.
Location wise this property is ideal as a base for visiting all the popular spots in this area, the local restaurants are very good and excellent value, We eat at Valentino's, La Collina, and our favourite La Fonte. The local wines are excellent especially if you enjoy reds, also the local people were very friendly and enjoyed our attempts to speak Italian in the restaurants.
In summary I would highly recommend this wonderful home and its superb owners without reservation.

Would definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house with fabulous views and pretty much everything you would need for your stay. Our hosts, James and Christine, were absolutely fantastic providing help and advice whenever we needed, in particular where to find the best car parks when visiting local sights. The local windy roads can be come a bit tiresome but you don't get such poolside views without a bit of hard work. Sue and I really enjoyed our walk down to the local bakery where everyone we met on route gave us a friendly 'Buongiorno'. Anyone who stays here must visit the local restaurant, Valentino's, at least once.

The photographs on this site provide an accurate view of the property although I must say that the patio area at the side of the house with the table and chairs is even nicer in real life. We spent a lot of time there eating 'al fresco'.

A big thank you to James and Christine as they really did enhance our holiday.

Fiano is situated in the hills above Lucca in northern Tuscany and enjoys panoramic views down the valley to the city and towards Pisa beyond. Behind are the wooded foothills of the Apuane Alps and the Garfagnana with mountains up to 2000m, stunning views and beautiful countryside.

Less than an hour’s drive from Pisa airport, Fiano makes an excellent starting point for excursions in Tuscany. Lucca (17km) is undoubtedly the area's most important attraction. However, Florence (87km), Pisa (45km) and Siena (150 km) are all within easy reach by car and there are also regular direct bus and train services to Florence and Pisa from Lucca. The beautiful coast of the Cinque Terre is little over and hour away and for beach lovers, the Versilian Riviera is only 27 km away.
