This home is far beyond the pictures... it is incredible! We were a group of 5 and there was more than ample space throughout, easily would accommodate 8. The pool is massive and the views are stunning. Lot's of outdoor seating areas throughout the property. The kitchen is a dream and very well equipped. We ate every single meal al fresco on the covered terrace. I think I will be booking this place again for next summer, this time for 2 weeks!
The perfect villa
This is by far the best holiday villa we have stayed in. It was better than the photos depict, beautiful in every way. There is a really cool outside seating area with outside speakers for evenings chilling out to music, the kids loved the pool and the table tennis. The kitchen is awesome and the decor in the property is truly gorgeous. Some tips if you stay here. 1. You really need a 4 by 4 to get up the hill to the property, we hired an Audi A4 and had a nightmare getting to the property with cases in the car. It's remote. Secondly, you are not within walking distance of any restaurants, so need the car to get round to the villages near by. The best local supermarket is the esselunga in pescia, which has everything you need, even home made lasagnes if you can't be bothered to cook, but it is about 15 minutes drive, so make sure you have everything if you don't want to do the trip every day. 3. There is no sign at the gate to say you are at the property, it's the first immediate house after the one with an actual sign. It would be very helpful if there was a sign at the foot of the drive. With this property what you win in remoteness, quiet, beauty and stunning, you do lose in terms of ability to walk to a nearby town or viallge, a car is essential. 4. Florence is good, Pisa is what it is, a sight seeing escapade, but the real treasure is Lucca, just 25 minutes away and the highlight of our trip. Definitely take a bike ride round the walls. Overall, perfect family holiday, just lacking somewhere to stroll in the evening.
Many thanks for your kind review. We are happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay at our house. Thank you for your feedback and tips and we will put a sign at the gate.
Our house has 2 gates with 2 road access. The first access is a bit steep, yet short (about 50 meters) private road, it takes only 1 minute directly to the gate. The second alternate road turns around the property and gives an easier access (about 500 meters) to the other gate at the back of the house. Most guests arriving with standard cars and not a 4 x4 manage to drive uphill using the first access. At your arrival you went uphill using the first access with an automatic transmission and full loaded car and not yet being familiar with the road, you had some trouble in driving uphill.
A suggestion for cars with automatic transmission: Use the D1 (1st gear) manual setting for driving uphill.
A truly stunning property. We loved every minute of our stay here
Immaculate villa with amazing views.
Fantastic holiday retreat
We had a wonderful time at this large and comfortable villa. The facilities were of a high quality and the pool was a perfect size for swimming in. The views from the house across the valley were stunning!
We spent a lovely week at Villa Campo alla Casa. It is, as the other guests have written a most impressive villa, excellent fittings and facilities and views to die for. The pool, which is massive helped cool us down in the heat of the day but beware there are biting flies in the late afternoon and evening in that area. The gardens, sitting areas and ping pong table all got used regularly. The bedrooms were comfortable and airy so sleeping at night wasn't hot and sticky because there was always a cooling night time breeze. This is the best villa we have ever rented and I would highly recommend it.
Many thanks for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to host you and your family and we are very happy that you enjoyed our house and pool especially during hot summer days to cool down. We hope to see you again in the future.
Warm regards, Ingrid
An idyllic villa
The villa is in a truly beautiful setting surrounded by flowers and lovely views. The pool was amazing with lots of lovely seating areas particularly well arranged in shade. We really enjoyed the ping pong table too! The villa was very well equipped and my son (who loves cooking) enjoyed the kitchen. The inside comfortable seating was a bit squashed for 6 so if there were more people it might be tricky. The bedrooms were beautiful with lovely views once we worked out how to open the shutters fully. We did, however, have a problem with one of the beds which started to collapse in the night! The fitted mosquito nets were really helpful. The 2nd floor bathroom was lovely but the shower and toilet room in the 3rd floor bedroom is very small. The access to the villa is quite tricky along very narrow, bumpy, dusty tracks and the track up to the villa is very steep and we thought we might not make it in our people carrier. There is, however, an alternative access which is a bit easierb. The surrounding countryside is very wooded and not really suitable for walking so you do need the car to get to the various local eating places. It does take 20 mins to get to Pescia the nearest supermarket and train station but is well placed for visiting Lucca, Pisa and Forence all of which we enjoyed. Overall the villa does have a wonderful atmosphere of luxurious tranquillity and all the church bells just added to this. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
