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.

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.

Toskana pur

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus CASTAGNO haben wir eine Woche lang zu Viert genossen. Patrizia, die Vermieterin, hat uns überaus herzlich begrüsst und uns Haus, Garten, Pool etc. gezeigt bzw. erklärt. Das Haus lässt wirklich keine Wünsche offen, bei der Küchenausstattung fehlt es an nichts und alles ist sehr gepflegt und mit viel Geschmack eingerichtet. Begeistert hat uns die überdachte Terrasse mit grossem Tisch, kleiner Aussenküche und Grillmöglichkeit (Backofen bzw. Holzkohlegrill). Hier haben wir die warmen Abende bis spät in die Nacht genossen. Der Pool war einfach herrlich, toll zum Abkühlen bei Temperaturen weit über 30 Grad. Es sind ausreichend sehr bequeme Liegestühle und Sonnenschrime vorhanden. Sehr gut hat uns der Garten gefallen ,mit vielen mediterranen Pflanzen und Bäumen. Wer gerne Tischtennis spielt findet neben dem Pool eine neue Tischtennisplatte. Erwähnenswert wäre noch die herrliche Aussicht von der Terrasse,die besonders bei Sonnenuntergang begeistert.

Wir haben eine sehr schöne Zeit auf Serore verbracht, tolle Ausflüge gemacht und einfach das Leben in der Toskanna genossen.

Belle semaine !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très belle semaine dans ce gîte. Les photos correspondent à la réalité. Pour le logement de 5 personnes, c'est même encore mieux, il y a un superbe préau avec grande table, bbq, four à pain, évier, ... un bel endroit où passer du temps autour d'un repas à l'abri du soleil, très agréable. Le site est très calme, la piscine est partagée pour 2 logements, chacun ayant sa plage privative. Le logement est très propre, bonne literie.

Les réceptions GSM et Wifi sont très faibles, faut juste le savoir, ceci dit ca aide à passer de bonne vacances déconnectées...

La vue est juste superbe. Comme c'est en hauteur, pas trop de moustiques..

Les propriétaires sont sympas et discrets.

Lucca à 20 minutes restent une ville super agréable, ...

Pas grand chose à redire sur ce logement. J'y retournerai probablement.

From Lucca follow signs to Catelnuovo Garfagnana on the highway SS12 and then on the county road SP2. In Diecimo turn left following signs to Pescaglia (take the county road SP32). 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.
