Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week- which wasn't long enough. We had the most relaxing, peaceful time here. The villa is very well equipped, clean and modern.

The views are stunning. This is a real 'get away from it all' location, although there are towns nearby if needed. For us , it was a chance to relax and unwind, lay back in the sunshine, with just the birds singing, breeze in the trees and the trickling of the pool. Perfection.

Great villa in rural location, relax and unwind

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa away from the hustle and bustle, if you want to relax and get away from it all. The view is fantastic, and ever changing from sunrise to sunset. The villa has 4 good sized bedrooms, ample inside and outside eating areas, the kitchen is well stocked and there is barbecue outside for lovely alfresco dining.

With regard to outside eating, unfortunately there was a number of wasps on a daily basis, which could take the shine of an otherwise enjoyable experience.

The property is isolated and is reached via many winding roads, which I have no issue with but can make daily sightseeing tiresome.

Just to follow on from a previous guest review, as the villa is on the side of a hill the sun sets behind the hill in the early evening and therefore can be quite chilly on occasion, but again we did not find this an issue.

The one major supermarket is 40 minutes away and a minimarket approx. 10 minutes away.

Overall we had a lovely experience, I like to explore new places but if someone suggested returning here then I would be very happy to do so.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a good time and enjoyed the house and the area. For future guests, do note there are also large supermarkets just outside Castelnuovo and also Pieve Fosciana, both of which are a 20 minute drive away and a reasonably large supermarket in Piazza in Serchio just over a 10 minute drive. The area doesnt generally tend to be waspy and we find it much more of a problem in the UK for eating out. For some reason this year, later in August we also experienced quite alot of wasps, which we think must have been due to an unusually mild winter? We are happy these insects didnt put you off and that you would still be very happy to come again!

A lovely property in a fantastic setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa lived up to all our expectations. It is exactly as described, clean and very well maintained. The views from the bedrooms and the swimming pool area of the terraced garden are stunning.

There were eight of us - 4 adults and 4 children - so the accommodation was perfect, with two en-suite bedrooms for the adults. The other main bathroom on the bedroom floor is huge with a bath, and the downstairs shower room is ideal for popping in from the pool and garden as necessary during the day. There is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space in the bedrooms. One of the non ensuite bedrooms has a lovely little balcony with table and chairs. All the bedrooms are a good size and would be equally ideal for four adult couples. We noted there was a travel cot available in one of the bedrooms, plus a good selection of books and games which we made use of. There was plenty of spare bedding in the cupboards if needed, and a large bath towel plus small towel per person were provided.

Downstairs is also as described in the brochure - good sized lounge with huge L-shaped sofa on which all eight of us could sit in comfort, plus another smaller sofa. Sky tv, lots of dvds and play station also provided. The kitchen had everything we needed - plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, and a large kitchen table, plus full size cooker, large fridge with freezer, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. We used the even larger outside table shown in the photo all the time because the weather was beautiful. The pool is very clean with steps at one end and about 1.2 metres deep.

There are no shops within walking distance so we took it in turns to drive to Camporgiano or Piazza Al Serchio to stock up on groceries and we mainly had barbeques when we were at the property in the evenings. The large fridge made it possible to shop for several days worth of food.

As we did not have any problems we did not test the customer service by the owner, but from email correspondence before and after our visit, I am sure any problems would have been dealt with promptly.

Both Camporgiano and Piazza Al Serchio have railway stations from where you can visit many other places much more easily than driving and parking. We took the train from Piazza Al Serchio to Castelnuovo for the market on Thursday, which we all enjoyed, and there is plenty of free parking at the station.

All in all we had a great time and would definitely recommend this property.

The perfect family holliday

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in this wonderful house! The views were absolutely breathtaking, the pool was nice and warm and the people in the villages of Cascianella and Casciana were welcoming.

We were four families (with four babies younger than nine months) spending the vacation together and this property was perfect for it! Each had their own bathroom (two en-suite) and the owner provided babycots and chairs for the babies. The bedrooms were well insolated, and you could hardly hear the other babies at night :)

I would definately recomend this property to others!

Map

Car: necessary

Casa Cascianella is situated just outside the ancient village of Cascianella with its tiny population, and a 10/15 minute walk from Casciana, which is a little busier and boasts a bar and shop!

Despite the real feel of yesteryear, the stunning views and peace and quiet, it is only a 5 minute drive (or less) to the village of Piazza al Serchio with traditional local shops, supermarket, small Tuesday morning market, river, bars, restaurants and train station for easy exploring.

In terms of larger towns, there is Castelnuovo the busy market town which is 20 mins or so away, the mediaeval town of Barga 45 minutes, and the walled city of Lucca, which is a must for a day out, 1 hr 15 mins or so.
