About Deborah Cave

We are Brian and Deborah Cave and we moved to the Bagni di Lucca area in 2007 with our two boys, following the sale of our business in England. We decided to start a new life in Italy and live ‘La dolce Vita’. We had been welcomed with open arms by our fellow villagers and although we have since returned to the UK, we are still overwhelmed by the hospitality and friendliness of everyone that we have met.

We decided to buy two additional properties to renovate and rent as holiday lets which we have done so successfully for a number of years.

We want everyone who stays in one of our holiday homes to have a fantastic time, experience this wonderful area of Tuscany without paying a small fortune to do so and feel that they have received a good service with value for money.

Deborah Cave purchased this house in 2008

Why Deborah Cave chose Bagni di Lucca

Having fallen in love with Bagni di Lucca, we found an idyllic area in the hamlet of Riolo - one of the many mountain villages that make up the commune of Bagni di Lucca - and decided to build our own holiday home.

We then decided to buy another property with a view to renovate and sell it on. We decided against this and changed our plans by renting our little house as a holiday let.

What makes this house unique

Set in a quite village, with parking immediately outside the property. A small, family run, bar is a stone's throw away and a restaurant serving home cooked food is just 5 minutes away from the house. The restaurant Il Biribisso is 2 minutes by car in nearby Granaiola.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Debbie and Brian, thanks for a very pleasant stay at Casa Verde! A lovely house with all the ‘creature comforts’ you could ask for to make it a home from home experience. The welcome pack also was brilliant and made it all the more relaxing.As regular visitors to Italy, this has certainly been a memorable stay - yesterday was our 3rd Anniversary and as we were married in Lucca, it has been great to come back and experience Lucca again with our daughter!We would highly recommend “Villa Bongi” for a superb meal; this was our reception venue. All in all, a lovely end to our summer holiday 2011.

Rosie, Alex and Charlotte - England - August 2011

Thank you Debbie and Brian for such a warm welcome! This has been our second time in Tuscany and again have loved every minute of our time here. Lovely house very traditional but with everything we needed. The babies certainly slept well in their cots and seemed to have really enjoyed it too!

The village is just beautiful and peaceful.Thank you o

Further Details:

There is a small bar 100 m from the property, which is run by a local family, and has a small shop and an outdoor seating area. Further along the road, about a 5 minute walk, you will find a restaurant that provides home cooked food at a reasonable price and again, is family run. 5 minutes in the opposite direction, by car, is another restaurant in Granaiola. This has a wider menu and is popular within the local area with residents and tourists alike. They also provide a pizza take away service.

Bagni di Lucca offers a host of bars and restaurants, which is approximately 10 minutes down the hill. There is a night club in Chifenti, which is open during the weekend and hosts musical events as well as the usual night club scene. Also in Chifenti there is a fantastic ice cream bar with numerous and wonderful flavours available.

Approximately 15 minutes up the mountain Orrido di Bottri, the local nature reserve can be found. Here you can: take a tour and explore the gorge by walking up the river bed, marvel at the wonderful wildlife - maybe spot a golden eagle or see some rare plant life, or simply have a lovely picnic and enjoy the peace and quiet. During the summer a festa is held there and local produce e.g honey or cheese can be purchased. There is also a large barbecue which is a great experience to mingle with the local residents and soak up the Italian lifestyle.

Throughout the summer months many mountain villages in the area host their own festas, providing foods indicative of their area. A marvelous and exciting way to see and experience the real tuscan life.

Borgo A Mozzano is approximately 15 minutes away, by car, and has the famous bridge Ponte della Maddelena. Also known as The Devil's Bridge. The city of Lucca is 30 minutes away and a magnet for Puccini fans. There is a museum dedicated to him and open air concerts are regularly held to celebrate his works.
