A lovely relaxin family retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family (which includes two young children) and I had a lovely time at Casa Adele. It was a lovely secluded spot, comfortable house, and lots of outside space. Along with the private pool, the large garden included swings, outdoor shower, barbecue area, and gazebo with table and chairs. You will need a car to be able to get to the house but the nearby village, Camporgiano, is only a few minutes' drive away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It is always good to hear when guests enjoy this beautiful setting and large garden and pool, which one would be more likely to find with a much bigger property... Hope you enjoyed eating out at Camporgiano too... Loretta at

A little piece of heaven

  • 4 of 5

Have just spent a week at Casa Adele. What a fantastic location to spend our holiday. The outside space is superb and we enjoyed having our meals under the pergola watching the swallows skim over the pool and then the fire flies at nighttime. The owner pops into the garden every morning to clean the pool and water the plants and as another reviewer has mentioned, he's not intrusive. It did take us 3 days to discover where the washing machine was ( in the small shed against the wall at side of house)! And I would say it's more like 4km into Camporgiano. The only thing I can find fault on is the fact that there were no cleaning supplies or basics like salt + pepper provided as there have been in other holiday rentals I've been to. But other than that I can highly recommend Casa Adele as its a little piece of heaven!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and we are really glad you had a great time and enjoyed this beautiful area! You are right, the outdoor facilities at this house are brilliant, and May /June is an amazing time to come as we have the fireflies lighting up the skies like fairies! The owner apologises that he did not leave basics and cleaning fluids. You were his first guests this year and he totally forgot! Thank you for taking your time to post these comments.

Endroit magnifique et vacances reposantes

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour superbe malgré le temps nuageux. La maison était impeccable, la piscine nickelle. Les amoureux de la nature y trouveront leur compte, un chevreuil passait de temps à autre derrière la maison. Le propriétaire n'est pas envahissant, nous l'avons vu 2 ou 3 fois tout au plus pour s'occuper de la piscine et il était vraiment sympa. Région superbe.

Small cottage in an idyllic setting.

  • 4 of 5

A great place for a couple or family with two children. Super pool within very large private garden. Tremendous views with lovely walks on the doorstep. The cottage is well equipped and easily manageable. The owner attends regularly but is not intrusive.

Within 15 minutes drive of Castelnuovo (shops, large weekly market, English newspapers etc).

Have stayed on three occasions and will be visiting again this year.

Huisje ligt in een heel klein dorpje (+/- 10 huizen!) geen supermarkt, restaurant etc. Met kinderen valt er helemaal niets te beleven!

Verder ontbreekt er aan bij bijvoorbeeld fatsoenlijk bestek ( diverse lepels, vorken etc.) Wij huren jaarlijks huisjes in Toscane maar dit viel enorm tegen, is dat geld absoluut niet waard!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry you didn't like this house and maybe chose the wrong location. It is sad to see your comments seeing as the cottage usually gets 4 and 5 star reviews and lots of repeat bookings. The advert does not say there are any facilities in the village at all, but as detailed there is a restaurant you can walk to just over 2km away and apart from that there is a selection in Camporgiano a 5 minute drive away, and also in town a 10 minute drive and other selections further afiele. We wonder if maybe you didnt download the local information pack we sent you in advance of your stay so you could plan where you wished to visit and eat out etc. For shopping there is a large supermarket in Castelnuovo a 10 min drive away where there is a selection of shops, bars, gelaterias etc , and there are two small supermarkets in Camporgiano a 5 min drive where there are also some restaurants, chemist, bank couple of bars and other local shops. The hypermarket is a 25 minute drive. Most guests tend to come to this area a second time in order to fit in all the touring that they didn't get a chance to do.... This isn't the sort of area for funfairs etc but for children there is swimming in the river; the interactive tour of the local fortress; horseriding; cycling around the walls of Lucca; the local lake; zipwiring and tree climbing for all ages at Buffardello; rock climbing, canoeing and river walking at the adventure park; tours of the wind caves, and of course at the house, the beautiful flat gardens and very large private pool. Many families also visit the beach although this is a bit of a drive. We are on hand 24 hours a day to assist if anything is missing in a property and would have been pleased to bring you anything that you lacked immediately upon receiving a call . We will double check the itinary when we do our next inspection. Thank you and sorry you didnt have a good time.. Lorraine at housesintuscany

Casa Adele is peacefully situated on the edge of the sleepy hamlet of Roccalberti, in the heart of the Garfagnana.

1 mile away is Camporgiano, with its restaurants, supermarkets, small weekly market, privately owned castle, and train station.

Situated around 1 hr 15 minutes north of the beautiful mediaeval town of Lucca and just 15/20 minutes from the town of Castelnuovo famous for its Thursday morning market, there are also plenty of bars and restaurants to chose from.

The house is around 90 minutes or so from Pisa, 2.5 hrs from Genoa, 30 minutes from the lively town of Barga and medieaval say 1 hr 15 minutes from the coast.

There are plenty of opportunities to explore local towns, hill top villages, to walk and picnic, trek along foot paths to Vagli and Campocatino, ride horses, fish, or simply relax.

A good choice for total seclusion yet with conveniences only a short car ride away.
