Romantic Riverside Cottage, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, WIFI , walk to village
NEW! -photos will be updated end of May showing finished gardens and loggia etc. In the meantime, special introductory price!
Casina Piazza is a charming detached riverside cottage. The property has been lovingly renovated and offers privacy and romance - one can see the river from the large bedroom windows, and listen to the water gurgling by whilst lying in bed.....The river is dammed to allow refreshing dips and there is a small private pool in the garden, with dining al fresco provided by the covered loggia... The pool is ideal for relaxing and cooling off, and if you want serious swimming why not walk into the village and use their large outdoor pool (you will often be the only ones there first thing, as the locals don't tend to use it until the afternoon!).
The woodland location is beautifully peaceful, yet the cottage is within walking distance of all the facilities of the village - a rare find! Facilities in the village include bakers, greengrocer, pattiserie, rosticceria, butchers, traditional shops and supermarket. There a couple of restaurants and some bars too, and a train station for easy exploring. On Tuesday morning this small village comes alive when the little market arrives, providing opportunities to buy local produce, great cheese, and lovely roasted chickens, as well as the usual market fayre of clothing, shoes and kitchen equipment.
Ideal for romantic breaks, honeymoons or for small families, this is a great opportunity to stay in a private property at a competitive price.

Lovely little hideaway
We stayed in this lovely place for a birthday celebration. Great location being only a short walk from Piazza All Serchio square.
The owners were so helpful, at the start of the stay there was no hot water for the shower, this problem was fixed within the hour. Would definitely stay at this property again.
Piazza Al Serchio is a smallish town which can be used as a great base to tour this beautiful unspoilt part of Tuscany.
Great relaxing holiday location
Great location, just the right mix of summer heat & mountain coolness, in a pleasant village in the picturesque mountains. The property is ideal for a small family, two adults & two children, with local shops in walking distance, feeling neither surrounded nor isolated. The pool was just right to cool off and the nearby river is ideal for the kids to paddle & explore. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore the region.
Thank you for your review. We are really glad to hear you enjoyed the house and the location. We would be very happy to welcome you to the area again.

Skønt hus til afslapning og udgangspunkt for fantastiske oplevelser
Dejligt hus i hyggelige omgivelser lige ved floden i meget venlig og interessant by. Godt som udgangspunkt for oplevelser i Serchio dalen med helt enestående barsk og spændende natur – huler, bjergtoppe, kløfter, floder samt historiske byer. Tog fra byen (1 km) til Firenze og Pisa med skift i Lucca. Daglige indkøb i byen, storindkøb i Gallicano (ca. 45 km). Huset perfekt til 2 voksne og 2 børn. Flot nyistandsat med fritstående pool til afkøling. Lille køkken, men med alt, hvad der kræves til italian cuisine. Den søde ejer kom med fodboldbord til drengene, som tidsfordriv til siestaen. Huset ligger i dal, så direkte sol 8.30-18.30. Mange gøende hunde i området/byen. 14 dage fløj afsted med afslapning og gode oplevelser – vi anbefaler Vagli Park, Orrido di Bottri, Lucca og Firenze samt gåture i området og i floden.
Casina Piazza 500M from the centre of the village of Piazza al Serchio which itself has various traditional shops, supermarket, small Tuesday morning market, bars and restaurants, banks, station for easy exploring and beautiful river. The train station has direct trains to Lucca, Pisa and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, and it is possible to visit Florence and the seaside with one change, and the cinque terre with two. Whilst in the countryside, the house is well located for exploring the local market town of Castelnuovo which is a 20 minute drive, the gorgeous and popular mediaeval town of Barga which is a 35 minute drive and the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca which is say 1 hour and 10 minutes away. Pisa, with its leaning tower is a 90 minute drive, and one can visit Florence in 2 hours. The famous Wind Caves are a 45 minute drive. Closer to home there are plenty of little historic villages to visit, many of which have local festas in the summer. There are also the lakes of Gramalazzo, Vagli (with its hidden village submerged by the water) and Pontecosi, and some guests love to swim in the river. Casina Piazza is also ideally located for visiting the local Fortress at Verrucole which is a good afternoon out, with stunning views and some interactive activities for the children. Also close by is the Buffardello tree climbing and zip wire park (ideal for both adults and children of all ages with a variety of runs) where one can take a picnic and spend the entire day in the welcome shade of the forest. The real beauty of this area is the dramatic mountain scenery, and the hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, endless picnicking opportunities, and the pure peace of a non touristy holiday ......
