Casale de' Pasquinelli is situated amidst the hills that close the northern plain of Lucca, in an area where, thanks to its particularly favourable climate for growing vineyards and olive trees, many farms began to appear as far back as the 1500s, together with numerous important historic villas.

Overlooking the hillslopes with splendid views of the plain of Lucca, only 14 km away, surrounded by a large grove of oak and olive trees and is set inside an estate that not only produces excellent olive oil, but also vegetables, fruit and honey. Recently renovated, the casale has been divided into four very spacious houses Camelia Orchidea Melograno and Ginestra, of various size and all of which are independent. Villa Margherita is the fifth unit and it is located in front of the Casale.

In the restoration work prestigious materials were used with high quality results; the ceilings with wooden ceiling beams and the terracotta floors reflect Tuscan tradition, as do the antique furniture and 'pietra serena' fireplaces, perfectly combined with the equipped kitchens, the Carrara marble bathrooms, some with jacuzzi bathtubs, the style of the décor and the attention which has been given to every last detail, create an elegant, cosy and very comfortable atmosphere.

All the houses have wireless Internet access and a shared laundry room available with washing machine and iron. The outside garden is very well kept and full of flowers, with equipped areas for outdoor dining for each house, a beautiful swimming pool, a wood burning oven for baking bread and pizzas and a barbecue. It is now available a very nice outside area with an heated jacuzzi 6 seats.

Exclusive rental of the Casale for a large group is possible (for a total of 18 bedrooms), also for weddings and conferences: in this case, in addition to enjoying all the spacious living-rooms in the various houses, a large outdoor shared area with tables for dining will be made available as well as the cellar, which can be used as a dining room and an additional kitchen next to the wood burning oven. These facilities allow the entire group to eat and stay all together.

Lots of rooms and sitting areas can be found either outside and inside, those make it the right place to enjoy family and friends and also to have the own personal privacy.

Villa Margherita is a separate building with the own gateway, car park and the own swimming pool (6x12m) it means that if you rent the entire property, you will have 2 swimming pools to enjoy.

In the property you can also find a ping-pong table and 2 swings to entertain your kids!

Possibility to have a civil ceremony on site in case of wedding rental.

                                                                        David B.

                                                                        My fianceé and I chose this property for our wedding and to host our families for a week and we couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out. The property owner and manager was a joy to work with and went above and beyond to make sure we all had a wonderful stay, and even helped coordinate a dream-come-true wedding. We had both the ceremony and reception on the property and the view was stunning, the decorations/flowers/catering (done by Wedding & Co, highly recommended!) were unbelievable. We booked everything sight-unseen, trusting only pictures and reviews, but we were not let down. In fact, upon arriving at the property, it seemed the pictures didn't do it justice.

                                                                        The houses were very well appointed. They maintain a bit of a rustic feel, but nothing to take away from the comfort of the stay. Every bedroom, bathroom, and living area was very clean - surprisingly so once you take into account how numerous they are! The kitchens were adequately appointed, and our group had no problems cooking up most meals during our stay. Beds, linens, and towels were all clean and comfy. Any minor issues were quickly taken care of by the staff who were the perfect combination of available but unintrusive.

                                                                        The location was great for anyone looking to make this a point of departure for seeing lots of Tuscany. Members of our group made day trips to everywhere from Lucca and Pisa, to Cinque Terre, Florence, Siena, Umbria, and Modena. Others spent most of the week relaxing poolside at the Villa, hiking nearby trails, and enjoying the property's tranquility and beauty. Numerous wineries are a short drive away (book ahead for tastings), and a few great restaurants are within easy walking distance.

                                                                        We finished up our stay with a catered pizza party that was wonderfully delicious and memorably fun. Even after staying a whole week, just about everyone in our family was thinking of how and when to come back!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        I wish you all the best,

                                                                        Gabriele

                                                                        Lauren E.

                                                                        We were lucky enough to stay 5 days here from the 27th August 2017 to 1st September 2017. We got married on the 30th of August and it was the most amazing day. We booked this beautiful villa before flying out there to see it but we had a good feeling and after speaking to Gabriele, we felt confident it would be perfect for what we wanted. Gabriele kindly invited us out to stay for 3 nights in sept 2016 and it was more beautiful than we had imagined! The key things that made our wedding so successful were the vendors we worked with! From the beginning Gabriele was extremely helpful and when we visited he had arranged appointments with all the vendors. He sat with me through a hair and make up trial and really listened to what I wanted. We had an amazing food tasting experience with chef Daniele and when we visited the decorators, Antonella and Kety were able to bring to life our ideas within no time! We also had an engagement shoot with Linda and Carlo Nari to make sure we were comfortable. They were all amazing. After this We were able to go back to the U.K knowing that the wedding planning would be much easier with Gabriele's support. Gabriele stayed in contact throughout the year to make sure we stayed on track. All our guests were so impressed with the villa, it really is stunning and authentic. The wedding went to plan with no issues and Gabriele was always around during our stay to help with anything when needed. We are so appreciative of Gabriele and all the vendors for giving us the best day ever! Linda and Carlo worked tirelessly taking amazing photos and the videographers, Emotional Movie, were so kind and gentle to work with - great guys! Everyone made us feel so comfortable. We would recommend this place for an unforgettable wedding or event. We were nervous about planning a wedding abroad but it was so easy with Gabriele 's guidance. Thank you all! Only problem is that it went too quickly! Lauren and Mo x

                                                                        Nick C.

                                                                        The entire week was a truly unforgettable experience from start to finish, Gabriele and his team could not have done more for us and we will be for ever grateful for how special they made our big day.

                                                                        Everyone is going home with such great memories and we are so pleased we picked this venue. Compared to the UK you get so so much for your money and you are really made to feel like the rich and famous. I couldn't have dreamed of a better week and a such a perfect wedding day.

                                                                        Wedding day aside, the pizza parties are absolutely amazing and something you must do when you stay here. We had so much fun we ended up having two.

                                                                        Thank you for everything!

                                                                        Emily G.

                                                                        It's hard to describe this amazing place and the wonderful hospitality of it's owner/manager Gabriele. Our group of 8 families, gathered for a collective 50th birthday celebration, just got back from a week at the Casale, and I don't know how long it will be before the glow wears off. The property is just spectacular and the setting and the views defy description. The rooms/kitchens/sitting areas and the outdoor spaces are large, well maintained and well appointed. Gabriele does such a wonderful job of helping organize things on the front end and is an amazing host during your stay. The area around the property is loaded with wonderful things to do, and Gabriele led us in all the right directions. Lucca, just 25 minutes away, is an amazing Tuscan town, and some of Italy's best beaches are within an hour. Drive in any direction and you will find wonderful restaurants and wineries. I can't say enough, and I highly recommend the Casale especially for large groups. Absolute magic! (And truly, the photos do not do it justice.)

                                                                        Heaven!

                                                                        Jennifer H.

                                                                        Stop and Listen. If you are planning on visiting Lucca with a large or small group, look no further for a place to stay. This is it!

                                                                        I don't even know where to start with the explaining this amazing place and experience. We reserved the Casale for a week in May to host our friends, family, and wedding. It was beyond what we could have ever dreamed it would be.

                                                                        Let me start with the Casale. Upon our arrival, we just kept saying how the pictures did not do this place justice. We were blown away with beauty and warmth from the second we stepped on the property. The Villas are well appointed with every need accounted for from the rooms to the kitchens and common spaces. The grounds are so pristine. We went in May when the flowers were in bloom, the bees were buzzing and, my favorite, the Cuckoo birds were talking. The sunrise and sunset over the valley were simply stunning. People could not stop looking out over the vista. Honestly, every corner you turn on the property is just so beautiful.

                                                                        Gabriele is incredible. He was attentive and responsive since the day we reached out asking for information on the location. For over 9 months, long distance, he helped us organize our wedding, the stay and all things associated with a pleasurable experience for our friends and family. Gabriele goes out of his way to ensure a memorable guest experience. He even organized a hairdresser for my wedding.

                                                                        Pizza night was a blast. Our guests were so excited, they stood and watched the pizzas being made. They ate most of them before they were able to be served to everyone on the gazebo. We ate, drank and enjoyed everyone's company over the amazing vista and sunset. Some folks can't stop saying how that was the best pizza ever. Wow.

                                                                        Everyone, even some local family members, would not stop talking about the incredible wedding. Outside of the setting, Gabriele helped us work with Wedding & Co to deliver the most memorable experience. The company provided our meal, lighting, and flowers. The food was one of the best meals we had in all of Italy and Switzerland. It for sure lands in the top 10 in my life. The flowers and candle light made the magical.

                                                                        In summary, people were asking us throughout and after whether we were planning a 5-year reunion because they had such a fantastic time. We dreamt of going to Italy and having a wedding with our friends and family but we could have never dreamt of this special time and place.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

Don’t miss a walk around the ancient preserved city walls, where you’ll enjoy sweeping views over the city’s beautiful palaces and churches. Here the locals stroll, walk their dogs, chat on benches under plane trees and enjoy early evening passeggiate. The town has numerous tempting bars and trattorie, and is great for shopping. There is an outdoor market once a week which is well worth visiting to stock up on fresh produce, and an antiques market once a month. Horse riding (3kms) and golf (36kms) can both be arranged. The city is ideally positioned for exploring the best of Tuscany, being close to Florence, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano and Versilia. Versilia is famous for its beaches and nightlife (discos, clubs and bars). There are fascinating wine routes you can drive from Lucca.
