For the benefit of future guests, and just to clarify the road that passes by the house is an 'unadopted' road (originally built by locals) that passes over a river into Piazza al Serchio. The road serves only the small village of Casciana and the hamlet of Cascianella so that they can get to facilities without a longer drive around the 'proper' roads. The passing is therefore only used by those villagers and as a result is very quiet. It is totally usable but a little bumpy as it is not council funded. Thank you. Lorraine
