Fantastic peaceful hideaway

5 of 5
The property was lovely and comfortable, high in the mountains - the roads were better than I expected. Peaceful, quite remote but we found a great restaurant not too far away. If you want to get away from everything this is perfect. Amazing views, owner very helpful and left us some of his own wine.

Superb view with peace and beautiful birdsong

4 of 5
Myself and my wife stayed at Castello 11 for eleven nights. The house is lovely, characterful and cool inside. The balcony with tiled roof is just so lovely to sit on - great view looking down on the valley on trees and olive groves whilst for most of the day in the welcome shade. The valley bottom church bells chime softly in the distance. The dawn chorus birdsong and view from the ground floor double bed were lovely. The village of Valdottavo with some shops on the valley floor takes 5-10 minutes to reach by car down the narrow and steep road that winds up the hill and is a bit challenging especially the last 200m stretch which has a jagged rock face and sharp turn. Parking is 50 yards from the house. The nearest big town of Lucca takes about 20 minutes to drive to and it is simply lovely. The big car parks round the outside are free, with just a few minutes walk into the walled town. Lucca has many piazzas. Our favourite was Puccini which was a bit quieter than the others and had some nice restaurants reasonably priced. We much preferred Lucca to Florence. We thought it was prettier, much less busy and churches were free to go in. Walking from the house in the nearby woods was nice in the shade, but fairly energetic as quite hilly. We were sad to leave such a lovely spot.
