Guestbook comments from the manager

"Wow, what a place! Absolutely stunning location, we were all completely taken with the views, the villa itself, the surrounding villages and landscapes... just everything about it!"

"An amazing stay - the kids loved the pools (especially as they had one each!) and helping themselves to grapes straight from the vine! The facilities were brilliant, and so peaceful and relaxing – I'm torn between wanting to recommend it to friends and keeping it our secret!"

"Our stay at the Casa was booked by my parents so we didn't really know what to expect but we've had such a wonderful time - the local food and restaurants are just excellent, so many lovely little villages to visit, not to mention vineyards, history and culture."

"Our long weekend at Casa di Nonnas was perfect – four days of relaxing, eating, drinking and even a little cycling in such an idyllic part of the world - thank you!"

Great stay in a beutiful scenery

  • 4 of 5

The place is most wondeful.

Pictures in do not make justice to the beauty of it! Scenery is breathtaking!

We spent most of our holiday swimming in the mornings and visiting several surrounding towns in the afternoons and evenings. Great location and car is a must.

Garden with full of fruit trees was something we didn't expect but greeted with joy.

Fabulous villa - pefect family location

  • 5 of 5

We hired both vilas and were not disappointed. We ate outside most days and sat viewing the Tuscan landscape. The two infinity pools were in constant use. Thanks to Maurizio's recommendations we managed to explore much of the local area. Highly recommend Lucca and Florence.

We were met by Marilena who helped make our stay go smoothly.

We loved our first family holiday to Italy and much of that enjoyment stemmed from the excellent villa's we used as our base

A fantastic Casa in the peace of the Italian hills.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic gem of a casa in a wonderful setting.

We really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful casa. It is well equipped and very clean with plenty of space for a large family or even two family groups. We are a family of five, but all adults, so we appreciated the four double bedrooms. The bedrooms are all comfortable and having en-suite facilities in all four, and a family bedroom, is a great bonus. Although it was extremely hot whilst we were there, the casa, probably because it is old with thick walls, retained a cool interior if we kept the shutters partially closed. The main casa is an old building and there are many quirky features but this adds to the appeal.

The outside table and gazebo were ideal for alfresco eating and the barbecue was good. We ate all our meals outside.

The pools are fantastic! To have one infinity pool would be great, but two, and in such a wonderful setting, was just superb.

The drive up from Pescia was winding with an awkward turn into the villa (which is easily overcome by following the instructions provided) and the road is obviously a well used and popular cycle route, but it is worth the drive to experience the wonderful views.

I would recommend this casa to anyone wanting peace and quiet in the Italian hills and it is our hope to go back again some day.

Excellent location and villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as 2 families and rented both villas. The location is stunning and the views are unbeatable. The villas are lovely too and extremely well equipped. The pools are just fantastic - we all loved them and the water temperature was perfect. There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas too. Location wise, the pretty village of Vellano is 5 minutes away by car and Pescia is 15 minutes away by car. During our holiday we visited Florence, Montecatini, Collodi plus many others. If you want a chilled holiday in beautiful surroundings this is the place. The villas are up on a hillside away from any tourists which is lovely. I would also like to say how helpful Maurizio (owner) and Marilena have been. It truly was the best holiday we have had and we will definitely return. I can't recommend this place enough. It's fantastico :)

Great accommodation and location

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the accommodation, the bedrooms were great and the two houses were perfect for 2 families. Outdoor dining was excellent and the kitchens were well equipped and the garden with fresh fruit and an amazing swimming pool with a view were the makings of a perfect Tuscany holiday. It was great to be very private but short distances to fun places to visit such as Lucca, Vellano and many others. Thanks a lot, we can only highly recommend this destiantion
