Herrlich italienisches Landleben

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist superschön mitten im Ort gelegen, toller Ausblick. Camporgiano ist ein typisch italienisches Bergdörfchen. Es gibt keinen Durchgangsverkehr. Nette Nachbarn drumherum. Das Haus selbst ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Der Garten ist toll in Schuss und komplett umfriedet. Der Pool verschafft die notwendige Abkühlung und die Kinder hatten super Badespaß. Pool-Service kommt täglich außer So in aller Frühe und kümmert sich um Pool und Garten. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen bestimmt wieder. Im Dorf hats einen kleinen Laden, wo man eigentlich fast alles bekommt oder es wird bestellt. Ansonsten muß man mit dem Auto runter ins Tal. Will man aber eigentlich nicht, weils oben in Camporgiano so idyllisch und schön ist. Man kann in der Gegend auch gute Ausflüge mit den Kindern machen, dafür sind aber i.d.R. 30-60min Fahrzeit einzuplanen. Herrlich italienisches Landleben abseits von großen Touri-Rummel.

Fabulous week in a beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous place, the house was immaculate, clean, well equipped and a delight to stay in. The garden has a wonderful selection of different seating areas to view all the amazing surrounding scenery - in the evening we particularly liked the view across the valley to the hilltop villages and the mountains.

The pool was lovely on the hot steamy days and the under cover eating area was great for watching the thunderstorms! The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and provided good advice. the local shop was excellent for essentials including fresh bread and coffee. Very easy to get to Lucca by train from Piazza del Serchio (only a 10 minute drive).

Would highly recommend this house if you are looking for somewhere in a beautiful setting in the hills of Tuscany with all the modern conveniences including good Wi-Fi .

Thank you for a fabulous week.

The best place we have ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place. Beautifull view, private garden and with many places to sit and relax. You can always find shadow or sun. Nice and clean pool. The house was clean and had all you needed.

In the area there was several good hiking places and a lot off nice villages to see. There will be some driving, but there is a lot to see on the way, so it's okay.

We went to Monte carlo one day, on a winetour with Elena. A local guide we booked before we came. The owners recomended some hikingareas, when we came, and they where perfect.

It is a place we would like to visit again

Amazing Tuscan jewel

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the opportunity to spend an amazing two weeks at Villa Valentina. The property is ideally situated with great tourist areas such as Lucca, Castelnuovo di Garfagnana and Florence all within driving distance but is still rural enough so that you get a real incite into tuscan living. The property has all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay. The house was in great condition and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. I could not recommend the property and area highly enough and hope to return sometime in the future.

Very nice rustic ambiance

  • 5 of 5

The house is very much space, fully equipped and the rooms are lovingly decorated.

It would have been nice if the television programs and the receiving German would be possible.

The outdoor area with pool is very well maintained, a rain-protected terrace would be desirable.

We would like to live there again anytime.

Herrliches Haus in schöner Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt, schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet und auch der Garten mit dem schönen Pool ist sehr gepflegt. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und stets erreichbar, falls Probleme auftauchen. Viele Tipps bekamen wir auch von der netten Barbestzerin, sodass wir mit unseren Kindern schöne Wanderungen in der direkten und näheren Umgebung, aber auch lohnende Kulturausflüge unternommen haben. Ein rundum schönes Familienquartier! Danke!

Car: necessary

The hilltop traditional village of Casciana boasts 250 inhabitants, a busy old fashioned bar for locals to meet up, and a shop which can supply all essentials including fresh bread. The bar owner will also often cook on request. This is a taste of real Italy, living in an authentic historical village which is set amongst the mountains, and surrounded by wonderful views!

The village is around 3kms to the closest restaurant and after this point there is a good choice of restaurants and bars. The closest larger village is Camporgiano a five minute drive away with a couple of restaurants and bars; inhabited castle; supermarket, pharmacy, small Monday morning market, and station for easy exploration of the entire area.

The village of Piazza al Serchio is also only a 5 min drive away – across the river, and all facilities can be found here.

The property is circa 20 mins from the market town of Castelnuovo; 35 mins from the beautiful mediaeval town of Barga and just one hour 15 minutes, north of the fully walled City of Lucca.

Pisa is around 90 minutes or so away....

For non townie days, there are hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, there is swimming in the river, picnicking in the hills, visiting the local fortress, zip lining in the trees, the grotta del vento (wind caves), the National Parks....

This is an ideal opportunity to stay in a mountain village house, with fantastic views, and experience the real Italy!
