Why Cristina chose Borgo a Mozzano
This Holiday House is a family home for generations. Is situated in a very quiet and sunny position from which it takes the name of "House of the Sun."

Cosy, clean, peaceful with amazing views and caring hosts.
Spectacular views from cottage. Peaceful and quiet. You do need a car but approach private road to cottage is narrow.
Cottage was big for two, although it has bunk beds in smaller room to cater for 4. Property was clean and had necessary equipment. The stove is gas with separate electric oven. BBQ available outside but we didn’t use it. There is no microwave oven.
It was lovely waking up to Tuscan countryside with the bird songs and looking out of main bedroom to the tree covered mountains! Garden is well laid out to enjoy the views and weather.
TV is available but programmes were in Italian. Guests with children should bring games, books, entertainment gadgets etc. WIFi available,
Ideal location to get away, see Tuscany in the mountains, and within easy reach of Lucca (30 minutes) and Pisa (1 hour). There is a train service but we didn’t use it.
Hosts, Franco and daughter Cristina were very helpful and courteous. As the weather changed, Franco came back to ensure we had adequate heating (central heating system). They were prompt in replying to our emails and any enquiries. We met them at their home and they showed us to their cottage.
We didn’t see all in the 5 days and would be happy to return.
We would recommend this cottage to family and friends.

A lovely house
This is a lovely house with a fantastic garden. A great location to be based with good access to the wonderful mountains or for visiting the local towns and cities. Cristina and her father were very helpful and we would love to return again at some point.
Well.. Honestly, I do not understand all the good reviews. Here are our experiences:
The location is very secluded and quiet - which we liked! However, getting there in anything but a small car is impossible. Very narrow, unpaved road with sharp turns. If your car is unable to get there, be prepared to park about 1 km away.
The property was pretty, large, and very quiet - no loud neighbors or noises - so that was a big plus!
The kitchen was meagerly equipped - the stove was powered by a propane gas tank under the cabinet which had to be opened and closed every time you wanted to prepare a meal. Living room: dining table and chairs (uncomfortable!) and a 2 seater-sofa... so where would 4 people sit other than at the table??
Bathrooms: shower was a mere drizzle - no hot water! When I addressed it with the landlord he first said that it was fine... then he admitted that there was a problem which he will repair once we are gone... great!! The shower stall was very narrow - only 85 cm wide, no duct or window. Only 2 hooks - so where would 4 people hang their towels??
Bedrooms: Master bedroom was big and spacious - but only 7 clothes hangers in the closet - so do not bring many clothes! Second bedroom did not even have a door - just a curtain- no privacy!. No room for a chair even - only 5.2 m2. The beds were okay - not too good - but the pillows were very hard - woke up with a stiff neck every morningl...And so on... Could be a nice property if one took the time and a little bit of money to make it comfortable.
Will definitely not come back!!
Hello Mrs Birgit,
We are very sorry to read that you didn’t feel well during your stay in our Holiday Home Casa del Sole. We thank you very much for your compliments, but however we would like to clarify some points.
The road unfortunately, as you can see from the photo published on this web-site, isn’t a perfect road and could represent an actual problem for those customers that traveling with caravans; situation that fortunately it happened once, but without creating any real problem. However, apart from this situation, there haven’t been any problems for our customers, as with you, in reaching the house. Some customers also came with high-powered cars, without find any problems.
The kitchen has everything you need to cook: dishes, cutlery, ladles, pots, cutting boards, pans, etc...As regards the stove, that is powered by a tank of GPL Gas which all country houses are equipped, we ask to our customers to close the bottle just in case they leave the house. The stove is already equipped with an automatic safety system, but we use this method as a further guarantee. The photos published on this web-site represent the house at the time of booking of our customers, and the living room, as you can see from the photos and as you have seen for yourself, is composed of a two-seater sofa and an armchair.Unfortunately, the size of the room doesn’t allow us to add other possible armchair.
The Water System had and has hot water available, which unfortunately during your stay had a delay of a couple of minutes in arriving. We proceeded to repair everything as soon as you had finished your holiday, because the problem that had presented, required more complex work that we didn’t consider right to deal with during the presence of one of our customers and that in any case required more days of work. Anyway, the photos represent the house that we rent and the Shower Box, as you can see from the photos, doesn’t have a window and the bedroom is small, but still welcoming.
We’ve never found any problems with our customers so far, who have always been happy with both the holiday home and the staff. Many customers have come to visit us even several times, reconfirming the hospitality of the Holiday Home and the availability of the owners. We’re sorry to receive a review so low and we still apologize to you if the stay wasn’t to your liking, but thank you for your review and we welcome your comment as a reason to improve even more.
Great, quiet house with great views
We loved Casa del Sole! A great place to enjoy the nature and come to peace. We used the big garden for our kids, to run around and we set up a swimming pool. The house has everything you need to have a relax stay. Thereby is the location also functional, 45 min to Pisa, 75 min to Florence, 120 min to Siena. We would recommend the house because the owners take really good care of their guest and make you feel at home with special attention (we received to taste tomatoes of the field nearby the house and wine from the region).
My stay here with my friends was absolutely fantastic! We were completely shocked with the views surrounding this beautiful cottage, it's far better than the pictures!
The inside has a cozy feeling, making you feel at home with all the basics supplies you could want.
Just down the road is the train station with regular times to all the main sightseeing spots, like Florence and Luca!
We ate in a local restaurant, about a 10 minute walk down the road, which was also really lovely and great value for money.
Cristina and her Father welcomed us into the cottage, and gave us lots of useful information and were very kind!
Overall, it couldn't have been any better! We thank you so much and hope to return one day!
