Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
This recently refurbished 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached house (110sqm), with private pool is wonderfully private and peaceful.
The south facing garden is flat and there is plenty of room around the house for children to play. The trees in the garden provide welcome natural shade, although there are of course umbrellas, and the covered loggia overlooking the garden and pool is also a perfect place to relax out of the heat of the sun, and to dine al fresco.
Inside, the large kitchen/diner with fireplace, is well equipped, and opens out onto the terrace/loggia as does the living room which provides comfy seating. Two of the bedrooms are double, with the third, ideal for children with bunk beds and a further single bed.
The brand new pool is 5M x 10M plus Roman Steps and is lit at night. The depth is 1.4/1.5M.
Between June and September the owner will be happy to provide meals (cooking only) at the property, for those evenings when guests do not wish to venture out.

The Tuscany region
The Tuscan Region of Italy is well known for its warm balmy summers, beautiful countryside, rolling hills, mouth - watering food, and of course its towns and villages, rich with mediaeval architecture…
The Garfagnana region of Tuscany, often known as its ‘Green Lung’ is situated away from the milling crowds that can often be found at the most famous Tuscan locations and is totally unspoilt, remaining untouched by tourism. The scenery is spectacular, green and mountainous with views of both the Apuane and Appenine mountains at every turn…And, due to the altitude whilst the weather can be very hot, it is always pleasantly cool for sleeping…
The food is usually home made, using home grown produce, and is typically simple and extremely tasty. Prices here remain very reasonable due to the fact that food is prepared with the locals, and not tourists in mind…The local wine is cheap and surprisingly drinkable!
The pace of life is slow and peaceful – spend your days enjoying secluded picnics, swimming in rivers, or watching locals play bocce or ‘cheese throwing’. Visit hundreds of ancient hill top villages, or relax at home basking in stunning scenery. For ‘townie’ days, visit the mediaeval towns of Barga, Lucca, Castelnuovo, with Pisa and Florence within easy reach too…This is Olde Worlde Italy.
Casetta Noci is immersed in the heart of the green and mountainous Garfagnana region of Northern Tuscany. The property is 1hr 15 mins north of Lucca, less than 2 hrs from Florence and 90 mins. from Pisa. Castelnuovo, famous for its Thursday morning market is around a 20 minute or so drive, and the beautiful mediaeval town of Barga 40 mins.
Garfagnana with its stunning scenery is perfect for walking, picknicking, relaxing, visiting countless hilltop villages, visiting the National Parks of the region. The closest larger village is Camporgiano around 2km away - there is a small supermarket, a few shops, bars, a couple of good restaurants, small Monday morning market, pharmacy, and train station for easy exploring of the area. There are plenty of walking trails starting in the village of Casatico 1km or so up the hill.
