Design house in Tuscan style surrounded by nature - RESIDENZA 'CASTAGNO'

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,076 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property


Surrounded by the nature of the Val Pedogna, near the natural park of the Alpi Apuane, in a secluded and quiet position, the Residence “Ai Sorbi” is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The entire property has been recently renovated and equipped with elegant furniture, with the typical Tuscan architecture mixed up with a modern style. The owner Andrea Salvetti is an artist who built this home with the help of some of the best designers (E.Sottsass, G.Pesce,A.Ciffo etc.). Moreover, the position of the house is really perfect, since it is surrounded by the nature of a valley but 22 km away from Lucca and 35 km away from the sea. You can easily reach the Garfagnana, with its typical products (porcino mushrooms, chestnuts flour and hulled wheat), as well as Pisa, Florence, Siena and other Tuscan destinations. The stone swimming pool is 13x6 m and you can get to the property through 500 m of a paved road.

Really nice house, nice area, good host

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property in some lovely countryside. We really enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable stay in Tuscany in stunning scenery. The house is really nicely decorated and outside is fantastic including a great pool. You are immersed in nature (birds, cicadas, even deer...) but not so far from shops, ice cream, cafes, and a short trip to Lucca.

Perfect holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to spend our two-week holiday at Serore, residenza Castagno. The house was very clean and very well maintained and the furnishing of the house was very charming - especially thanks to Andrea and his art pieces.

The swimming pool is in a league of its own! It is huge and clean - simply just perfect. It is also very well-organised that each family has its own sun bathing area by the pool.

Patrizia and Andrea were perfect hosts - very discrete, but always willing to help.

We can definitely recommend this property to everyone - and we will be back!

Un séjour reposant au calme

  • 5 of 5

En famille avec 3 enfants nous avons passé un séjour sans télévision ni internet ce qui nous permis de passer d'agréables moments dans la piscine et à jouer en famille à des jeux de société.

Le gite est très agréable et confortable et Patrizia et son mari très accueillants et serviables.

La ville la plus proche Lucca est à 30 minutes. C'est une ville très animée qui dispose d'un patrimoine très riche et intéressant.

"The house and the surroundings fit the description perfectly. Patricia is a very warm and welcoming hostess who is always ready to help and to make her guests feel at home. We spent a marvellous holiday in Serore and are planning to go there again."

Sehr ruhig gelegenes Haus, abseits vom Trubel

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 10 Nächte im Haus Castagno verbracht. Designer-Ferienhaus lässt vielleicht mehr erwarten als es ist. Es gibt ein paar ausgefallene Dekorationen, aber ansonsten würden wir mal auch den Begriff rustikal anbringen. Die Zimmer sind ausreichend groß, Bad war geräumig und sauber. Küche ist gut ausgestattet aber ein wenig ungewohnt zum Arbeiten. Macht aber nix, ist ja Urlaub und nicht zu Hause. Wir hatten jetzt Ende Sept. Anfang Oktober noch Glück und konnten immer draußen essen, somit war für 5 Personen Platz genug. Bei schlechtem Wetter wäre das vielleicht etwas schwieriger geworden. Das Wohnzimmer ist ein kleiner Raum mit Sitzgelegenheit und Kamin, Fernseher gibt es nicht. Genutzt haben wir diesen Raum eher als Ablageplatz. Internet (Wlan) war während unseres Aufenthalts nicht verfügbar (Sturm einige Tage vorher hat wohl die Leitungen gekappt), normales Netz hatten wir nur ganz wenig. Wer darauf angewiesen ist oder es unbedingt braucht sollte was anderes suchen. Den Pool konnten wir glücklicherweise auch noch nutzen, hat uns gut gefallen, groß genug und sauber. Besonders schön fanden wir die überdachte Außenküche mit Grillstelle und Pizzaofen. Wir haben uns mit vorhandenem Holz am Abend ein Feuer gemacht und gegrillt und uns daran gewärmt. Die Anfahrt zum Haus ist nicht unbedingt für sportlichere (tiefergelegte) Autos geeignet, mit normalem Auto bei langsamer Fahrweise kein Problem. Man sollte auf jeden Fall wissen, dass man nicht mal so eben schnell ins Dorf kann, das braucht schon eine Weile. Dafür hat man aber die Stille und kann auch mal die Rehe durch den Garten laufen sehen. Für uns (4 Erw. 1 Kind) war es ein sehr erholsamer Aufenthalt und wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und auch gut erholt. Patrizia hat sich sehr gekümmert und war so freundlich uns auch in Restaurants einen Tisch zu reservieren und hat uns diverse Tipps zu Ausflügen und Restaurants gegeben.Wir würden das Haus wieder buchen.

Continue for about 2.5 km. Turn right at Ansana. Continue for 1.2 km. Turn right at Serore, then continue for 800 m and then turn right at the second sign for Serore. The road to our property is not paved. It is possible to book the residence Castagno for 5 people in the same property (ref. homelidays n° 175926). We will be glad to suggest you the best sites to visit or some restaurants where you can taste some local products or wine. Our property is 2 km away from the famous Tuscan health spa of Bagni di Lucca, as well as from Grotta del Vento and Antro del Corchia in the park of the Alpi Apuane with its grottoes and paths signed by the Alpine Club. 2 km away: parascending classes.
