Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a good time at the property and the area, and that you enjoyed the fact too that you can walk to facilities.We have passed your feedback onto the owner.
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
