The property is located in the small, friendly, typical Tuscan village of Brandeglio. Brandeglio has retained its unspoilt beauty and is known for its festas and traditions. The bar/restaurant (which also has a pizza oven) is a short stroll from the house, the thermal spa town of Bagni di Lucca is 10 minutes drive away. The house dates back to the 18th century and still maintains a number of its original features. It boasts spacious accommodation and offers an idyllic base to explore Pisa, Florence and Lucca as well as the stunning and famous coastline of the Cinque Terre. The house provides suitable accommodation for both families and friends. Pisa airport is approx. 1 hour 15 mins drive away and is serviced well by Ryanair and Jet2 flights. Local attractions include horse trekking, white water rafting, golf, quadbiking, thermal spa, cycling, and these combined with the peace and tranquillity of the village which offers extensive walking trails and truffle hunting areas ( if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of wild boar, deer and porcupine) provides a base for relaxation and adventure. Nearby Bagni di Lucca has supermarkets and a general host of shops, banks, bars, cafes and restaurants. It also has a stunning open air public swimming pool (main pool, childrens' pool and diving pool), sunloungers, and a café/bar with a games area. Bagni di Lucca is a historical thermal spa town and offers spa treatments for those seeking an indulgent treat. Tuscany is reknowned for its love of sumptuous food and fine wine and there is plenty of opportunity to sample both in the area. For those wanting to travel a bit further the historical Sienna and San Gimignano are approx. 2 hours drive away and the beach at Viarregio/Lido di Camaiore is approx. just over 1 hour's drive away.

Wow - amazing!!!
What a an amazing place. Absolutely stunning views from the balcony where we ate our meals, sat and read books, drank wine and played cards. The house was spotless and fully equipped with everything anyone could need ( in fact the kitchen was better equipped than mine at home!). Perfect location for visiting the major tourist attractions ( we went to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa) and great to retreat to away from the crowds. For the more sporty of us, there was wild swimming, zip wires, white water rafting, quad bike riding, horse riding, fishing and mountain biking, all within easy reach. The village was beautiful and the silence was a godsend. What a way to chill out!

Excellent séjour !
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine du 15 août à Brandeglio.L'endroit est charmant et ses habitants adorables.Tous les soirs étaient organisés des concerts,des karaokés...etc...sur la place du village.
La location était confortable,rien ne manquait et les amis de la propriétaire étaient prêts à intervenir en cas de besoin.
Nous recommandons l'endroit aux amoureux de la nature et du calme qui ne seront pas pour autant très éloignés des centres touristiques de ce coin de Toscane.
We are so pleased you had a lovely stay. It was a pleasure to have you in our house.
Veel te afgelegen en te veel bochten (65) om beneden te komen!!!
Wij hebben 4 ipv 14 nachten in dit huis gewoond. Na een gevaarlijke tocht naar boven, waarbij we bij elke bocht zonder begrenzing van de weg, in de afgrond keken. We konden in het donker het huis niet direct vinden en hebben wij aan de bewoners moeten vragen waar het huis was. Met een kruiwagen moesten we onze tassen naar boven rijden. Het huis was goed maar de locatie verschrikkelijk afgelegen. Het zwembad was gesloten en als we boodschappen moesten doen duurde het een half uur voordat we beneden en bij de supermarkt waren. We gaan hier nooit meer heen. Jammer genoeg kregen we geen geld terug voor de dagen dat we geannuleerd hebben. Maar gelukkig hebben we snel een ander huis gevonden met een grote tuin en in de bewoonde wereld!
We were sad to read this review of our property as we aim to please all of our guests and we are glad that somewhere else was found which was more suitable. As can be seen from other guests’ reviews both before and after this visit they have had a wonderful time and did not encounter any of these issues. The description on the website describes the village as quiet and tranquil and we give accurate distance and average car journey time from the property to many other locations. Information is provided to find the location of the house in the village and we have never had a problem with this before either by day or night. Also we have a contact (Marie) in the village and contact information for both Marie and ourselves is given prior to arrival in case of any issues. Unfortunately, unknown to us, the public pool was being refurbished at the start of your stay but did reopen 2 days after you left. This I’m afraid was out of our control. We were advised by HomeAway that because we were not notified until over half way through the rental period we should not refund any money as we were then unable to readvertise that rental period. Overall the village is a charming typical Tuscan hill village and has been enjoyed greatly by all our other guests.
Beautiful and exotic !
The place is in a remote village up in the mountains of Tuscany. The view is breathtaking and this 18th century has the charm of it’s age and yet all the equipment and facilities you need. If your willing to drive up and down a narrow winding road for about six km to acces this charming village, I strongly recommend it. Day trips to Pisa, Cinq Terre and region are feasible.
Thank you Stephane for your kind comments. I am so pleased you all had a fantastic stay at our house and you are most welcome to return anytime.
Sweet home, fantastic point of view !
