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 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 unique

With views over the River Lima Casa del Fiume is a 5/10 minute leisurely walk to local bars and restaurants. A beautiful walk along the river is the perfect way to soak up Italian life whilst making your way to the bar for morning coffee or returning to the house after a lovely evening meal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a delightful Autumn retreat this last week and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Casa del Fiume was well equipped, homely and endearingly idiosyncratic. All in all it has been a great get-away and thank you for the use of this lovely facility.

Sophie - England - October 2010



It’s our second 1 week vacation this year in Bagni di Lucca. One week in spring in Casa Verde and now one week in Casa del Fiume. Both houses are fine but we do like Casa Verde up in the quiet mountains most. Casa del Fiume is well equipped with nice central heating. Thank you for having two good houses for our very nice vacations. Dorthe and Niels Vejen and Hanne and Per Vissenbjerg - Denmark - Oct 2010

Thanks for a lovely rural ending to our Italian holiday. We enjoyed exploring the area on bike, train and on foot. Deborah and Brian were very hospitable and very friendly via email and in person. It was great to have a welcome pack, especially the wine!Fiona, Darren and Richard - Scotland.
