Beautiful house in a really picturesque setting, stunning panoramic views out across the mountains. There was four adults and two children and we had more than enough space. The kitchen is very well equipped and Anna was very helpful and welcoming when we arrived.
There are quite a few mosquitos but this is because you are in the beautiful mountains. Anna supplied candles and plug ins to help.
Only 40 minutes from Pisa and a short drive to Lucca, La Spezia and the Cinque Terre. There’s a local food shop and wine shop about 15 minutes drive down the mountain so very handy location.
We very much enjoyed our week in Casciana.
The house is superbly situated at the top of the village with inspiring views in every direction, and from the bedrooms particularly. We enjoyed breakfasts out on the patio in the morning sun, set in the well kept garden with its olive trees, while planning our walks in the Alpi Apuane and watching the passing swifts. Most of the walks we chose this time took us a few kilometres back down the valley to Castelnuovo and up into the hills from there, but always an easy and attractive drive, and we tended to shop at the well stocked supermarket on the main road not far away at Camporgiano.
We found the house had everything we needed: the kitchen compact, easy to use and well equipped; and bedrooms comfortable and spacious. The weather could still be cool overnight in May, but not unpleasantly so and just an extra blanket sometimes at night did the trick.
Very much looking forward to returning for another visit.
