About the property

Double-floor stony house with great view on the valley until the sea

Casa Irene is a double-floor stony house placed in the town centre, with an independent access and open-air spaces; it is placed about 300 mt from the parking, as cars cannot enter the town centre.

The conservative intervention and the furniture, made of ancient typical Tuscan pieces, make it an intimate and welcoming "nest-shelter". This house is unique for its vista from the building and from the garden over the amphiteatre made by the hills, which continues down to the sea.

At the ground floor there is and entrance, a broom closet with the washing machine, a kitchen and a bathroom with shower (no window); at the first floor there is a small bedroom with a single bed and the big sitting room-bedroom with a French double bed. From the first floor one can enter the private roof garden furnished with table, beach umbrella and beach chair.

Convenient for 2/3 person, max. 4

About Owner/Manager

I am a travel consultant. I owned a travel agency in Lucca for 20 years. Now, I try to travel as much as I can and I profit of the calm of Colognora. In fact, I live near Casa Irene and I can support the hosts during their stay.

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Owner/Manager chose Pescaglia

Colognora is 20 minutes far from Lucca, placed in an amazing natural environment. It is the perfect spot for a country house, a "little Tibet" where to found peace and calm after the work week or during vacations.

We highly recommend you to visit this country if you love ancient mountain villages suspended in time. It’s also a beautiful example of rural architecture with large courtyards, loggias, old buildings with dwellings, ovens and kitchen gardens. The village includes several noteworthy house portals, whose keystones date back to the sixteenth century.

What makes this cottage unique

Colognora is a village out of time. The air, the water, the view and the environment are unique. Casa Irene is the highest house in the village and with its garden you just feel on the top of the world.

Charming old stone house, perfect for peace and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at the house (Casa Irene) at the beginning of September 2016.

Fiorella and her daughter were there to welcome us and explain everything about the house. The house is actually bigger than what we envisaged from the pictures and it is very tastefully decorated. The house and the village are beautiful, quiet and charming, the only sounds in the evening and through the night are the owls and the church bells. You do get used to both!

On a more practical note we should probably mention that the deposit was sent back to our account promptly.

We are more than happy to recommend the house and Fiorella as host if you want to see another side of Tuscany.

The small village of Colognora is perfect for a quite holiday in the middle of the nature. There are paths through the forest where you can walk or go with your mountain bike. Otherwise, within maximum 30 minutes you can fish, swim in the river Serchio, ride an horse, go to ski at Abetone or taste the local specialities such as polenta, farro, formenton, castagnaccio and wines for the valley.
