Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Lucca Area - Casa Capannina, large private pool, great views. WIFI. Walk to restaurant.

Detached self catering house in Tuscany, with 3 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms

Casa Capannina is a light airy and spacious detached holiday property, with private pool, set in the midst of the countryside, with stunning views and a real feeling of peace.

Whilst a property with a modern feel, there is a feeling of tradition with upstairs having vaulted beamed ceilings, fireplace, exposed stonework, and a wonderful covered terrace. The property is well equipped, and the kitchen has all mod cons - oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, etc..

There is a large enclosed, private, well kept garden overflowing with flowers, and well equipped, with at least three al fresco eating areas - a large covered terrace, an enormous uncovered terrace, gazebo, and two BBQ, as well as a tree covered area with picnic table.

For relaxing, there are the good quality sunbeds around the large private pool (6 m x 12 m), recliners and of course a hammock.

Fuller details of house: Enter house via large uncovered terrace, into large living room with fireplace and arch vaulted beamed ceilings.

From the living room one finds the kitchen diner, with oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and dining table. A modern kitchen but given a traditional feel with the beamed ceiling.

Also from living area, there is a light and spacious upstairs shower room.

The living area also leads out onto large covered terrace perfect for those cooler nights, and also offering shade for mid day eating. The terrace overlooks the garden and pool, with views of uninterrupted countryside.

Downstairs there are 2 spacious double bedrooms and a twin room, which has the benefit of an en-suite shower room. There is a further shower room downstairs, with hydro-massage shower. The washing machine is also kept here. There is a large entrance hall with double doors leading out to garden. This entrance hall area houses the sofa bed, so one can use the bed, and not disturb upstairs.

Free WIFI internet access

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a good time and enjoyed the house. I have mailed you separately about the beds to find out exactly what is wrong with them, as this has never been mentioned before, and we need to understand. We do get lots of repeat bookings for this house too, so I want to make sure all is fine for everyone!

Lovely house in stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday here. The house is spacious, well equipped and immaculately clean. Our children loved the enormous garden and good sized pool. The views are stunning! The owners were great, extremely friendly and helpful. We booked with Tuscan Retreats who were also excellent. All in all we can't fault it!

Tuscan Bliss, A wonderful break away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house, so much that we have already booked it again for next year!

The property and location exceeded our expectations, everything that we had seen from photos and information provided at time of booking was as we expected or in most cases even better when we arrived. The property was very clean and well equipped, the gardens and outside area were very well maintained and swimming pool was cleaned daily by the owner Renzo before we even woke without him ever disturbing us.

The house is in a very private setting with amazing views but yet just minutes in the car from local amenities, we had a mixture of wonderful days out going from drives in the mountains stopping at random little restaurants with the most amazing food I have ever tasted to having beautiful days sitting by the pool. We visited the city of Lucca which is about 45mins away and is a must do visit! We also had a Pizza take away from the Pizza restaurant in the village of Camporgiano which i must say has been the best Pizza take out I have ever had!

The owner Renzo was very friendly and always at the end of the phone if we needed him, he made some good recommendations of places to go and nothing was too much trouble when we contacted him. We found the service from booking through Lorraine right through to dealing with Renzo locally to be excellent.

We are looking forward to returning again next year and would have no hesitations in recommending this property!

A fantastic house in a very peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented holiday properties in France, Italy and Portugal over the last 12 years and we can honestly say that this is the best property that we have stayed in.

The house itself is spacious, very clean and well maintained. It is also very well equipped with everything that you could possibly need from a wifi connection to a collection of books to read. The 'upside down' layout of the house works very well - you can take shopping straight into the upstairs area where the kitchen and living area are and you can wander out of the bedroom area straight to the gardens and pool. A bathroom on each floor is also very convenient.The upstairs balcony/terrace is a wonderful place to sit and eat whilst enjoying the fabulous views. There are also places to eat on the front patio near the barbeque (which is very large!) and in the gardens.

The gardens are large enough to play badminton and other games and are very well kept by Renzo (the property owner) who came very early every day of our stay (before we were up!) to tend to the garedns and clean the pool. The pool was spotless throughout our stay (due to its daily clean!) and there were plenty of wooden sun loungers with soft padded covers for lounging around the pool area. The peaceful location of the property means that the house and pool are not overlooked at all - we only saw one car and a couple of walkers go past during our entire stay!

Renzo was very helpful without being instrusive and he gave us tips on places to visit and the transport to use. There is lots to do in the area. We visited Florence (we drove to the outskirts and then took a tram to the centre), Lucca, Pisa and many hilltop towns. We also visted the Grotta del Vento caves near Gallicano (there is a very good supermarket in this town) and Lake Vagli which covers a medieval village.

Lorraine (the property manager) was also very helpful and gave us lots of information and advice before our stay. The whole booking process was very efficient and easy.

There isn't really much else for us to say other than we would highly recommend this property and we will definitely be visiting again!

Castelnuovo is famous for its Thursday morning markets in around 20 min or so away and the medieval town of Barga 40 min.

The closest larger village is Camporgiano around 2 km away - there is a small supermarket, shops, bars, restaurants, pharmacy, and train station for easy exploring of the area.
