Nice and wild
Old charming house in a small idyllic village with very nice people in the middle of the mountains. Have enjoyed our stay with kids and dogs very much! Especially recommendable for hikers and nature lovers: lots of fauna around - we have seen snakes, scorpions, deer, pheasant, weasel, fat dormouse and many porcupine dens.
Thank you for your lovely review, Christian. The neighbours contacted me after you left to say what a pleasure it was to have you as guests in the village and they hope you'll come again. I've never seen a weasel, but we are regularly visited by badgers and eagles!
Absolutely delightful. This is the second time we've been, returning this year with more people, including 10-and 12-year-olds who were in heaven, able to clamber freely through the woods. Whenever I'm stressed now I imagine myself back on the terrace listening to the sound of the breeze in the treetops.
The fact that the railway line is almost back in full working order is a big plus.
It's so lovely to know that our special place is special for other families too and we look forward to welcoming you all back again soon.
Welcoming and peaceful
We had a fantastic time here - eating dinner in the garden under the stars, wandering around the pretty little village, learning about the rich partisan history of the area from locals in the know. The owners gave us a detailed description of the route and it wasn't hard to find. The property was clean and well-maintained. The house feels cosy and welcoming and the views are gorgeous (and there’s an amazing new treehouse in the garden). There's a beautiful man-made lake a 20-minute drive away – perfect for a day out with the kids. Some excellent local restaurants are also easily accessible by car. Not to mention the fabulous local produce and the thermal baths found in nearby Porretta di Terme. The charming medieval town of Lucca is a 30-min drive across the Tuscan border. If you're looking for a tranquil hideaway far from the madd(en)ing crowds, Casa Castagna is for you. We had never been to this region before but will definitely be back. I feel very grateful to the owner for showing us the unique corner of Italy.
I'm so glad those who stay at Casa Castagna are so positive about the house. it is our second home and we love it too! The tree house is almost finished (just needs a ladder) and then the kids will have even more reason to explore the woods, leaving the grown-ups to enjoy the views..
Bello, bello, bello!
Torniamo ogni anno, più o meno per una settimana, in questa casetta che sembra uscire direttamente dal mondo delle fiabe. Il borgo è bellissimo, caratteristico, con tutte queste abitazioni in pietra e un panorama da spezzare il fiato. La casa è accogliente, non così grande ma ha tutto quello di cui si può aver bisogno: tre camere, un bagno, una cucina, un salottino ed un bagno ed è veramente tenuta benissimo...è riuscita subito a conquistarci e ogni anno ci torniamo con gioia!
Il posto è perfetto per rilassarsi, passare un po' di giorni "fuori dal mondo", senza traffico, senza confusione... ed è adatto a tutti: per una settimana tra amici o in famiglia!
La signora che gestisce la casa, Candida è veramente gentile e disponibile e offre tutte le informazioni cui si può aver bisogno!
Raccomandato altamente, noi già non vediamo l'ora di tornarci.. e ormai manca poco!
Silvia and her group of friends visit every new year and have done so for years. I offer a 10% discount for returning guests. It's wonderful to know that Italians find the house an enchanting as us foreigners!
