An ideal geographic context in order to visit the cities of art and the Tuscany coast. A pleasant lodging in order to breathe air of campaign in the atmosphere of a typical small village in Tuscany.
The house was built in 1800 and completely restored by hand by Livio grandfather in the 50 '. The living room has antique furniture and a table of quartz. The kitchen is new and equipped with an oven, refrigerator and microwave. Upstairs there are two private rooms, one with a double bed and one with a bunk bed. Both of them have a ceiling built with wooden beams. In the living room there is a double sofa bed. The house has a garden with a barbecue and is large enough for pets.

I study Marketing Management in Milan but I grew up in Pontedera, a small city near Casciana Alta.
Many Thanks - an excellent house in a hill-top village. An ideal setting for an await from it all holiday within easy reach of all the tourist sites. Casciana Alta has two well stocked village shops and a handy Pizzeria, and is just a short drive to a supermarket. A drive through the surrounding countryside gives you a real feel for the area.Wonderful value - will recommend to all our friends.
Abbiamo trascorso una settimana di vacanze meravigliosa a Casa di Nonno Livio, a Casciana Alta.
La casa è ben attrezzata e ha un piccolo cortile che nostro figlio ha goduto molto. Si troba ben posizionata, abbastanza vicino dalle attrazioni turistiche come Pisa (e dal suo aeroporto), Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena... ma abbastanza lontano da loro per godere della tranquillità e de i paesaggi Toscani
Villaggio Casciana Alta è tranquillo e accogliente, ha un piccolo supermercato e pizzeria, ma non lontano si possono trovare grandi supermecati e altri negozi
Marco, Giuglio e Lina (loro mamma) hanno fatto il nostro soggiorno molto piacevole.
Abbiamo intenzione di tornare in Toscana e sicuramente sceglieremo Casa di Nonno Livio!
Nice house in a small village, ideal for a quiet time. You will need a car as only limited buses. Small courtyard was a bit scruffy and we were unable to use it as we both get bitten by mosquitoes etc. Overall, good value for the price.
Satellite TV would have been good as we could only find Italian programmes when we tried.
the place is very nice, has almost all necessary things needed in a household. Location is nice, specially if you want to experience the life in a typical italian village then this is the place, what makes it 5 star is it being a hill town in Tuscany.... And all this at such an inexpensive price....would love to come again
Our stay in Casciana Alta was quite good & fits with what others have written in their reviews. It was quite wonderful to have this oasis in the small village - a house with a lovely enclosed garden. We easily drove to surrounding spots (recommend renting a diesel auto). The bus system is also quite extensive, serving this & other villages so possible to travel without an auto. We had everything we needed & do not need to use the air conditioning, though available, due to the coolness of the house. The kitchen has all that is needed, the well-stocked market is 3 minutes from the house and the nearby village of Casciana Terme had free wifi in the village square plus several gelato places & good restautants. Very nice place!
All facilities are available and clean. Large enough for family with 3 children (little bit incovenient that one has to sleep in living room). Lovely quiet Italian village. Lovely landlady (who speaks no word of English) and friendly neighbours. Small convenience store 50m away.
Bit noisy on Monday and Thursday mornings due to cleaning on the main street. BAD thing is that it is at least 45min away from main sites (Pisa, Florence, Livorno, Lucca, Volterra) and beach, but GOOD thing is that it is max. 1 hour away from all these sites.
