About Casa Bruno Team

We are a family group that has owned the property since 1526. We saw these non locals coming in and renting properties and thought not only could we do a BETTER job but be More competitive as well. With a business and customer focused background totalling between our family group over 200 years, we aim to provide the best Tuscany holiday you can experience.

Casa Bruno Team purchased this house in 1526

Why Casa Bruno Team chose Bagni di Lucca

It is easier to explain why we did not go for a property in Bagni di Lucca itself. Before we re-modernised Casa Bruno we looked at investing in Bagni. It didn't offer what we thought was a true Tuscan Village/hamlet experience, that we new our future guests would prefer. Plus the views at the bottom of our valley are quite limited and constrained.So therefore our choice of location and property were ideal because it was close to Bagni but offered so much more in terms of relaxation, enjoyment and amazing upper valleys views. Also by basing ourselves 10 minutes driving up the valley, we gain the cooling effect of our Prato Fiorito, mountain breezes. Come and find out for yourselves.

What makes this house unique

Casa Bruno has the best of both words for those that want the house in the country side but also know its perfectly placed to take advantage of amenities of a village shop and grocery store only 8 minutes walk away.You are also well placed to drive to supermarkets and hypermarkets from 10 to 25 minutes away.It has space for large family groups and is also perfectly suited for the single writer or producer looking for that piece and quite to think things through.The villa is open all year round and with central heating throughout the property you will feel warm and snug throughout the winter months. Here they will experience the total piece and relaxation, of the beautiful Northern Tuscany countryside, that is the Lima Valley.

Fantastic break. Fantastic place. Fantastic price.

  • 5 of 5

I have had 2 stays in Tuscany this spring. With only 4 of us traveling this time, we looked & found this newly refurbished hamlet town house, above the spa town of Bagni di Lucca.

Booking was easy, with quick email replies and payment confirmation, all within 4 hours.

I know this area quite well now. The beauty of the spring, had already began to work its magic, as the trees and flowers were bursting into bloom. We are avid walkers and took advantage of the perfect weather every day, to explore the mountain area.

Casa Bruno was exactly what we needed and perfectly put together. With a modern kitchen, 2 large comfortable bedrooms and nicely decorated bathroom. Very cleanly designed and with great views. They have a bunk bedroom that can sleep a further 2 but that was not needed by us.

There is even a gated garden area, where we had our afternoon coffee and cakes whilst admiring the beautiful view.

We were able to park right outside the house and we could be up at the village bar/restaurant,food shop or butchers, in less than a 10 minute walk.

One thing I have noticed is the mired of smaller properties,(up to 3 bedrooms) that have sprung up in the area. Some of them look no better than a barn with a kitchen and bathroom, that has not changed in over 50 year! Secondly email communication is mostly very slow and haphazard from these owners. We were still getting email replies AFTER we had returned home!

That most certainly was not the case with Casa Bruno, who’s owners provided a very quick service and delightful property for us to stay in.

All in all a fantastic break at a fantastic place at a fantastic price.

Grazie Casa Bruno.

See you again in the autumn!

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind begeistert! Wunderschön gelegenenes, sauberes, geräumiges und schön eingerichtetes Ferienhaus mit superschöner Aussicht. Ein kleiner Laden mit allen Dingen des täglichen Gebrauchs, eine Metzgerei und eine Pizzeria sind zu Fuß erreichbar. Zudem gibt es auch Supermärkte im nächsten Ort Bagni di Lucca.

Die Vermieter haben sich rührend gekümmert wenn Fragen oder sonst etwas war. Außerdem hat man hier eine gute Mischung aus Ruhe und der Möglichkeit, schöne Ausflüge bspsweise nach Lucca (eine wunderschöne Stadt!), Pisa, Florenz oder auch ans Meer zu machen.

Kurzum: sehr empfehlenswert. Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt.
