Charmante maison de vacances bien isolées
Gite très calme parce qu’assez isolé, bien qu’à proximité de la très jolie ville de Lucca.
Bien équipé (tri des poubelles obligatoire mais une seule poubelle à disposition), mais presqu’aucun espace de rangement.
Chants des oiseaux très agréable quand on se lève le matin.
Grande terrasse, avec douche extérieure appréciable par forte chaleur. Dommage qu’elle ne soit plus ensoleillée dès 18h. Enfants en bas âge à surveiller.
Petit bémol : accueil assez expéditif par un ami de la propriétaire. Nous sommes rentrés dans un gite dont toutes les portes et tous les volets étaient encore fermés.
Nice cottage for a stay in Tucany
You get exactly what is written in the description. It´s a very nice cottage in the mountains. If you want to book it just be aware that you are in the countryside. This means that it is very quiet and peaceful, that you are on your own and if you like it - you can enjoy exactly that. Next shop is 4km of driving - plan what you need. You really need a car. We really liked the place although it is not really close to Lucca (20 -25 min driving). We explored Tuscany from there and would book it again without any doubt.
You have everything in the cottage what you need (be aware, no TV and hardly internet). However, it's a pity that the music system only has an old apple plug, so you can't play music (via Bluetooth or other plugs / inputs).
In summary I can highly recommend the cottage - but read the description that you know what you get.
Communication with the owner was extremely friendly and straight forward.
Toskana Anfang August
Das Mietobjekt liegt ca. 20min von Lucca entfernt. Der einzige Mangel für mich war, kaum ein Empfang im mobilen Netz und kein Wifi. Ist aber in der Objektbeschreibung so beschrieben und deshalb kein Mangel.
Lovely charming house.
Remote quiet location in the lower forest. Easy access to nearby stunning Lucca and gorgeous country towns.
A TRULY GETAWAY PLACE!
We thoroughly loved staying here! A truly get away location. Quiet and relaxing! Any beeping of cars was more of a reassurance of warning other cars! One of the highlights was the gentle playing of a clarinet through the trees of the nearest neighbour! You really felt it was just yourselves amongst the trees. The area was lovely to discover, would like to come back!!
I am so glad you enjoyed the house and the location. And i would love to have you back anytime. Best wishes Vala
Lovely isolated house
lease don’t take this review as negative but as a constructive summary of what needs to be considered by guests. We really liked Casa Casciani and had a wonderful two week stay. We have visited many villas in Italy over the years. This is a place where you need to plan ahead. We just want to help others understand the property. The house itself is spacious, clean and comfortable and reasonably well equipped. What distinguishes Casa Casciani from other similar holiday houses, is its relative isolation.
Although there is an excellent restaurant within a 10-15 minute walk down and up the hairpin road, there is also a supermarket less than 10 minutes drive away. There are neighbours close enough so that you can sometimes hear their conversations in the garden and drivers sound their horns regularly to warn other drivers on the hairpin bends. This is where there is a contradiction in terms - it’s remote and quiet but there are car horns, clock towers chiming out the time from 2 villages , gardeners trimming the road verges, gardeners doing each house’s garden nearby.
The patio is south facing and when we were there (end of June to early July) was in direct sunshine for nine hours each day. The lovely city of Lucca is a twenty minute drive away, and Pisa is within easy reach. There are fine beaches around an hour’s drive away including the famous resort of Viareggio.
There is an abundance of wildlife, and although we were disappointed not to see wild boar or deer, the bats at sunset gave us a daily display. The birdsong is absolutely stunning and seeing them up close is wonderful. The less welcome wildlife included various biting insects, unavoidable in Italy at this time.
The house is on a hillside, almost surrounded by woodland with tall trees, and as such is completely private and not overlooked. The drive itself requires nerves of steel to negotiate from the road outside - on a blind bend- which needs a small car with good turning circles! The steep staircase from the car parking area to to the house is not easy to negotiate, especially with luggage and supermarket shopping bags. The house itself may not suitable for those with restricted mobility. Rooms are on separate levels with little steps up and down in to the bedrooms and the toilet.
Therfe is no Wi-fi, and the cellular signal is weak and unpredictable. There is no tv signal - the set is not HD, and is used only as a monitor for the DVD player, which has an iPod dock as well.
Thank you for your review, you have done a good job describing the house. In my information package that I supply to all my guests I do warn them about the road and how it is best to manoeuvre it. The phone signal is getting better every year but the WiFi is difficult to address due to the location of the house. So it remains a house to "get away from it all". And I totally agree that the house is not for people with motion difficulties due to its hillside position.
