About Gemignani Lisa

From an early age I wanted to 'live' in Tuscany, and I'm very attached to my roots, as I was taught by my parents and my grandparents.

Growing up then I met my wife, and has strengthened my and our Tuscan spirit, to the point of wanting to share with others. From our shared passion was born the idea of ​​buying a house and planning our dream ...

Gemignani Lisa purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Gemignani Lisa chose Media Valle del Serchio

Ever since we started to renovate the first brick of the house, our dream was to create a place where our guests can feel at ease, and entering, breathed an atmosphere of genuine familiarity.

For us, the Tuscany is part of our lives: it is the air we breathe and the food we eat. And it's nice to know what it means to the tourists 'live' Tuscany ....

What makes this cottage unique

Each house is divided when the house has its own characteristic:

Casa Cielo has a sun terrace protected by stone walls that ensure the tranquility and superb views.

And 'the angle that best characterizes it .......

Casa Terra has a Tuscan kitchen with stone fireplace. A room truly superb.

Casa Pietra as well as being beautiful and in Tuscan style, has exclusive sauna and hot tub.

While Casa Il Nido is ideal for a romantic break in two

Gorgeous light-filled home in a mountain village

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Casa Terra over the Christmas holidays. Everything was as it claimed to be. In many ways, the house is even lovelier than the photos. Lisa and Luca were terrific hosts, even providing us with a Christmas tree and decorations! The house was warm, the kitchen great for cooking festive meals, the views stunning and the walks gorgeous.

It is a switchback road up to Boveglio so you do need to leave more time to drive places than the mileage would make you think, and the remoteness does mean that phone reception and wifi could be spotty but, if that doesn't bother you, you could not rent a more perfect place.

A perfect hideaway in mountain Tuscany.

  • 5 of 5

Since arrival all the way to departure our stay at Casa Terra has been amazing. The owners - Lisa and Luca - were really kind and made sure that everything went smooth by making reservations for us and always being there when needed.

The house is located at a reasonable distance to all major cities and towns in Tuscany and Umbria as long as you have the transport.

Everything is serene and quiet guaranteeing that you'll have exactly what you came for - peace and quiet in a beautiful country.

I am my whole family are definitely recommending Lisa and Luca as hosts and their Casa Terra and look forward to visiting Tuscany again.

We loved it

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at CasaTerra. The property is very high in the mountain which was a bit daunting at first but we loved the views and the air there. The house had everything we needed and we were all very comfortable. I am more accustomed to a list of "things to know" but Lisa was very quick to answer any query, despite the language barrier! We loved our stay in Italy and the area was exactly what we wanted. The drive to Pisa and Florence, as well as Bologna and Venice were easy and it was worth the trip to give us the lodgings that we desired. We would go again to stay in this home.

A charming Tuscan villa

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and charming villa! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Terre and it made our Italian vacation that much better. Lisa has put in so many neat touches to the house and it is just as the pictures show. We loved walking through the town of Boviglio and spending evenings in front of the fire. We were able to take trips to visit Lucca, Pisa and Florence from here and would definitely return in the future!

Home's where the heart is-Our Return "HOME!!"

  • 5 of 5

A year has passed and yes we did keep our promise to return to Tuscany. Not alone this time, but with the rest of the family...our 2 daughters and my mother in law.

Casa Terra was our first and ONLY choice.

Lisa, Luca and the lovely Casa Terra were awaiting our arrival and once again they welcomed us "Home".

When we returned to the Netherlands last year, my wife and I could not stop talking about the Beautiful house we stayed at and its most charming owners. We promised to return someday with the children to share Tuscany with them. We had hoped for the Summer vacation but circumstances did not permit. In Autumn this year we finally landed in Bologna and drove on to Boveglio, stopping to visit beautiful places enroute.

We spent one beautiful week at Casa Terra and once again enjoyed the hospitality of our host and hostess. We also once again experienced the beauty of Tuscany and our city visits included Firenze, Siena, Lucca to name a few. We also visited the caves in the Garafagnana , castles along the way and took a long drive through the Chianti area. Italian countryside at its best!! Spectacular vineyards and olive orchards!!! We indulged ourselves with delightful Italian cuisine and wine. Pity it all had to come to an end… like all good things do. We had the privilege of meeting their son and getting to know them better.

Our children and my mother in law, together with us truly enjoyed this one week. We are looking forward to our next visit.

We thank you for a wonderful time dear Lisa and Luca. We will cherish these memories for a very long time.

Casa Terra holds a very special place in our hearts..as do its owners!!!

Till we meet again!!!!

The farmhouse' Casa sotto la torre', is located at a height of 780, is like a gem set in the nature of Toscany. The house have be made out of an old farmhouse from the late 1700s, and have been recently renovated keeping the characteristics of Tuscan architecture intact, with original features such as beams, stone walls and visible terracotta ceiling tiles. The original furnischings have been skilfully restored and completed with arte povera furniture, giving the two houses a unique atmosphere, where the old the new are perfectly integrated, giving you at the same time all the necessary commodities.

They offer possibility to visit all the major cities of art such as Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo...not forgetting the wonderful mountain area of Garfagnana, that's so rich in old medieval towns. Nearby, in the town of Collodi, it's possible to visit the park of the world's most famous puppet Pinocchio.... an event that the youngsters shouldn't loose.... and a unique occasion for the not so young too!!!!
