A Dream Come True - Your Home Awaits!

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I had the pleasure of staying and having our dreams come true by getting married at Casa Greta in the first weeks of October 2014. First and foremost, Casa Greta is like something from a dream. The moment you walk through the front gates, you're greeted with beautiful landscaping, breathtaking views, the cutest poodles you’ve ever seen, and an immaculate villa perfectly designed and wonderfully equipped that makes you feel instantly at home. Not only do the pictures not do this beautiful villa justice, but Peter and Astrid are truly wonderful people and absolutely amazing hosts! My wife and I had always wanted to get married in Tuscany but never thought we would ever find a place like Casa Greta or find people like Peter and Astrid! When I first spoke with Peter, we were just looking at Casa Greta as a rental but after talking with him about our desires to have a wedding in Tuscany, he immediately offered his villa as a location and his amazing coordination of the event from the vendors to the paperwork– all out of the kindness of his heart! These are the kind of people Peter and Astrid are. They go above and beyond making sure your needs are met without expecting anything additionally in return, which is why when you are renting one of their properties, you are not just getting a place to stay but a place you can call home. Peter and Astrid were with us all day the day of our wedding, including serving as our translators and witnesses, and coordinating an amazing fireworks show at the end of the night. We can’t say enough wonderful things about these people and the spectacular home they have created for their guests. We miss Casa Greta, Camaiore, and Peter and Astrid every day and can't wait to go back and see our friends to celebrate our anniversary!

Luckily we all got a little help from above, as the weather was splendid and the atmosphere magical..... We are always here, ready to share more special moments with you. Your friends Peter and Astrid

A beautiful, comfortable house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Greta, the beautiful home of Astrid and Peter. They are lovely people and made our stay very special. Peter was always quick to respond to my questions prior to our visit and just as quick once we were there. He and Astrid made great efforts to ensure that we got all that we wanted out of our stay. Everything ran smoothly. The villa is fully equipped and decorated with style. Their home is stunning with every possible amenity you could wish for. Other great things about the house are the beautiful views of the surroundings, and the nice outdoor space, like the olive groves surrounding the house, the pool and the covered terrace off of the back of the house. The terrace was our favorite place to eat and sip wine. And the view was amazing. What a truly incredible place this is. The landscape is beautiful. The location is peaceful and allowed a relaxing stay and at the same time easy access to Lucca, to Pisa, and the Versilia coastline(Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi). We had some wonderful meals in Camaoire. The Ristorante Claudio is an absolute must as is the Ristorante Dogano. We had fabulous meals there and could not have received more or better attention and welcome. The drive up the windy, windy road to the villa starts out as a bit of a challenge but become less foreboding with practice and the rewards far outweigh the effort!

if you want to slow yourself to the Tuscany pace, experience a truly unique part of the world, and get to know warm, genuine people you will love this property. Melody

Wonderful and amazing

  • 5 of 5

When we saw the pictures of the house, we thought " too good to be true". But it was true!

The house and grounds are every bit as beautiful as the pictures advertise, maybe even more so. The house well stocked and clean. Beautifully decorated. Peter was quick to reply if we had questions or concerns, during our week as well as the year we were planning our stay.

Train stations and supermarket approx. 15 to 20 min drive. Road to villa narrow, but it adds to the charm

We can not say enough good things about our week.

A gracious property and most gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Once again I awoke to a sweet birdsong and light spilling through the windows of Casa Greta. This place is aglow with light and love. All week we have whisked off to the most lovely places...Lucca, San Gim, Volterra...medieval villages , walled cities, Montecatini Terme Alto perched high atop a hill and of course... the Renaissance Treasures of Firenze. We are here with much beloved friends and my heart has been warmed by the food and wine and laughter we have shared. But today, while everyone else headed to the sea I decided to stay here and simply bask in the glow of Casa Greta.

The Villa is nestled into the hillside of Pieve di Camaiore in the province of Lucca in Eastern Tuscany. After a white knuckled drive up the ridge through small, winding roads ancient gates open to reveal a golden Casa Greta. The Villa stands gracefully amidst beds of lavender and rosemary. The hills above and below yield fig trees and olive groves. The entire Tuscan countryside is perfumed with the scent of wild roses, lavender and rosemary and here at Casa Greta it is rich enough to make you swoon. Terracotta urns overflow with flowers and herbs.

Inside the restored medieval doors butter hued walls rise up from warm terracotta floors. Wood beams gleam in the ceiling and french doors open to patios and verandas that gaze over the hilltops. The view from the patio behind the kitchen has long arms reaching all the way to the sea. Beneath this a still pool welcomes friends to stop and savor life awhile.

The Villa is the creation of our hosts, Peter and Astrid Gufler- an architect and a sculptor. They call eachother shaktsi- which in their native tongue means my treasure. Unbeknownst to me at the time I leased their home, they are both longtime Yoga practitioners. Their are both celebrated artists in their own right and their masterpiece may well be the work of art they have sculpted out of this golden hilltop.

Pictures could never capture the sweetness of this place but it is my great pleasure to share them and to extend a deep and heartfelt recommendation to anyone who might want to visit Toscana at its most beautiful

The best you can get in Versillia, Tuscany!!

  • 5 of 5

I and my family of three have been renting Casa Greta for over 4 months this year, following our great experience with Peter and Astrid Gufler in 2012.

Casa Great is certainly the best-looking and functional Villa in the Tuscan region. It has been created with attention to every detail and gives you a feeling of being like at home. The kitchen is perfectly equipped and makes you feel like at home. As the house is located on the hill you can enjoy great views of the valley and sea, which makes the location a little bit like being in a ferry-tale. You need to drive 2,5 km up the hill to get to the place and, as I keep running, I learnt to appreciate the challenging road as part of my regular exercises. There is a great Pizzeria in the nearby, where we also spent some memorable moments with the family. The pool is also great, well designed for swimming and just hanging around with kids/friends/being alone.

Casa Greta is a great base in case you want to see the North Western part of Tuscany. Cities like Pisa, Lucca (biking on the walls of it is a must ?), Cinque Terre are all within an hour drive from the house.

Peter and Astrid have been always great hosts. They always provided great recommendations; Bangos, restaurants and local shops. We particularly liked the local butchery shop as well as seafood, all fresh and of highest quality. As they live 50 meters down the hill it makes them really available and reacting very fast in case you need some support.

Exquisitely designed house and grounds

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults and one toddler spent a blissful week at Casa Greta in early July. The house was absolutely as advertised. Immaculate and designed to perfection. Very luxurious fixtures and breathtaking vistas from every window. Our baby was well accommodated with a crib and high chair. Yes, the drive up was harrowing, but do-able, especially with practice. You could walk the 2 km down to Pieve for dinner/groceries but it would be a hike back up. You could easily spend the entire week on the grounds and have a splendid and relaxing vacation. We were close enough though to drive to Pisa and into Chianti for day trips. Peter was an available and conscientious host. He helped us engage local chef Sylvia for a feast of local seafood specialties al fresco; this was one of the highlights of our stay. There were hiking trails from the property and the grounds themselves were a fantasy. The salt water pool was simply amazing. We have been renting homes all over the world with Home Away and this was by far the most well designed, luxurious and evocative we have encountered. Not for those who wish to be walking to their destinations, rather a true get away in the Tuscan coast.

The kitchen is a dream, open to the patio and to the main living area. There are ample supplies and even an extra washing machine adjacent in addition to the main laundry room downstairs. Top of the line everything and a custom made stove! There is a beautiful living room with several terraces overlooking the valley and sea and a half bath on the main level. The lower level had a little sitting room with sofa (possible extra sleeping area) and two en suite bedrooms and the upper floor had a large bedroom and bathroom with fabulous views.

My only one small suggestion is to have baby gates available for the stone steps, but we easily made do rearranging furniture.
