300 Yr Old Modernised Converted Barn With Traditional Features, Garden And Pool

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,194 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, two bathroom, stunning mountain views, modern conveniences

The 3 story house has been lovingly converted from a 300yr old barn into a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom house with traditional Tuscan tile floors and wood beam ceilings. 2 of the bedrooms have double beds and the 3rd room has twin beds. All three rooms have mountain views. The house is fully equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher, TV/DVD player (for watching DVD's only), wi-fi and superb fittings and fixtures. Egyptian cotton linen and towels add a taste of luxury.

The house is at the top of the village and is on a steep and fairly narrow road. This is accessible by car but maybe a struggle in some conditions and low-power cars could struggle. There is parking for one car outside the house and ample car parking in the village with a short walk up to the house. The nearest airport is Pisa which is 75kms away (1hr20 driving time)

The outdoor area consists of upper and lower terraces with a BBQ and outdoor eating area. There is also a garden with a couple of hammocks and a swimming pool. There are stunning views from the terraces and swimming pool.

About Reneé Dodd

We are a family of three who love Italy and in particular Tuscany. We travel widely in Europe and further afield. We intend to carry on travelling and we plan to use our house in Tuscany a number of times through the year.

Reneé Dodd purchased this house in 2013

Why Reneé Dodd chose World

We bought Casa Rosa because we fell in love with it at first sight! It offered exactly what we were looking for; location, facilities, views, size and character.

What makes this house unique

Casa Rosa has both fantastic character and modern facilities in a beautiful area of Tuscany that allows for most of the main sights & the ski slopes to be reached on day trips.

Superb picturesque two weeks

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 2 fabulous weeks at Casa Rosa as a family of 5 last August (2017). This 300 year old converted barn is set in a beautiful little village of San Cassiano, nestling in the hills. The village itself has a small shop, butchers and two bars. One of the bars has fantastic live music at the weekends in the high season.

The house is modern inside with all the equipment you need for modern living, including a dishwasher and washing machine. The beds are comfy (2 doubles and a twin plus a sofa bed in the lounge) all with amazing views. The small scorpions and other local wildlife in and around the house are great fun for the children!

We loved the easy access to Bagni di Lucca, Lucca - with its walls that you can cycle around, and Barga - one of our favourite places.

Slightly further afield - but all day trips only - are Pisa and Florence. For Florence use the Park and Tram directly off the A1 (about 5km beyond the first exit to Florence Central) when travelling south from the villa. It is the cheapest, safest and hassle free option available - don't take your car into Florence itself!

Back at home, the house has a lovely raised pool which is great for hot days and, like the house, has unbroken views across the ancient oak wooded hills.

You can enjoy walks from the house, swim in the river below at various points - look out of clusters of local cars at the road side, or at Torrente Lima.

You need to be able to walk to the house from a car park in the village (about 7-8 mins uphill) but it is worth the climb to enjoy the splendour that is Casa Rosa!

Lovely house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house is lovely and well equipped. Access is a challenge but doable, though unless your car has plenty of power and is reasonably compact I would park in the village car park or at the top of the hill. View is gorgeous and the area has plenty of options for days out.

Great remote place with fantastic views

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in a very pretty house. Nice pool, great terrace with BBQ, good beds, well equipped kitchen and lovely rustique feeling/mix modern comfort. Real mountain feeling, maybe to remote for some....

With wifi and DVD-player with lots of nice Dvd's (for rainy moments)

Our old Volvo didn't love the steep driveway (fully packed), we ended up walking up/down (burn off the pizza's),

Driving to Bagni was a nice trip in combo with a supermarket visit (Conrad). The village San Cassiano was nice scenery but didn't offer much (small grocery/butcher/little restaurant) No problem, we didn't need entertainment.

Thanks for a nice holiday-memory!
