This pretty farmhouse is located 2 km away from Castelvecchio di Compito, a small medieval village on the hills between Lucca and Pisa. The area, known as Compitese, is renowned for its fine olive oil and for its beautiful camellias. The house is placed in a very quiet position and enjoys magnificent views on the surrounding countryside and the plane below. The owners have been renting for many years another property in our program, Al Mennucci, and when restoring Nel Guasto they used all the experience they achieved during the past years. During the restoration work they took great care in using only authentic Tuscan materials and they furnished the interiors with a nice combination of antique furniture and modern facilities, including flat tv in each room. Particular attention was given to the kitchen /dining area, very light, comfortable and well-organized, and to the outside eating area, close to the stone-built barbecue and pizza-oven, where to enjoy out-door meals with beautiful views. The swimming pool is placed in the most panoramic position on the very well kept garden. Nel Guasto is a real oasis of peace and relax, but being at only 15 km from the nearest motorway exit it is also an ideal base for touring Tuscany.
Ground Floor: Living/dining room, opening on to the garden; kitchen opening on to the garden and outside eating area; pantry; guest bathroom. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (shower only); twin bedroom; bedroom with French bed; bathroom (shower only).
Dear Paula and Roberto, I want to express our thanks and gratitude for your hospitality and generosity. Last year you made us feel like welcome guests, this year you made us feel like family. I hope that we can visit next year and enjoy your company again with us hosting a dinner for you.
Stunning garden and beautiful pool. Could use AC in July but otherwise has everything you need. Extremely helpful owners.
