About The Owner

I live in the UK with my wife. We both work full time but have always spent as many holidays as possible in Tuscany - we even got married there!

We fell in love with the Lunigiana region and bought our home in 2008.

The house is also our second home so we have tried to make it as comfortable as we can.

We hope guests will feel as passionate about it as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Casola in Lunigiana

Lunigiana is really still the undiscovered region of Tuscany.

Away from the crowds, it is still within easy reach of the coast and transport links.

Surrounded by medieval villages with a jaw dropping view at every turn, it has a magical quality all of its own.

What makes this house unique

The property is all about peace and tranquillity. Although it is on the edge of a village which has a bar!

The view from the terrace is wonderful and there are many local restaurants to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday at La Pineta! The views were spectacular and we loved sitting on the Veranda in the sunshine. Communication before our stay was excellent and La Pineta itself is very well furnished, comfortable, clean and organised. MHAug'11

Brilliant holiday in La Pineta. Plenty of room for all of us. Sitting on the upstairs terrace watching the sun do down in the valley, playing cards, sipping wine,who could want more. We didn't use the TVs much apart from watching the news about Wimbledon and the British Grand Prix. The children watched some DVDs and enjoyed playing chess,having a mini tournament between the 3 of them. The weather was unbelievable. Lunch at Spinos was excellent (and the pool of course). Eduardo in the local bar was very helpful with train times and also had some excellent Grappa and espresso there.


Hi Alan, sorry it's took so long to email but we're having too much fun :)Your house is beautiful, the views breath taking APAug'12
