Casa Tognarello is a semi-detached Tuscan villa in the hills between Lucca and the Garfagnana. It is part of a restored estate where the original characteristics have been maintained to provide an authentic villa.
In the simple yet pretty garden there is a vine covered pergola which shades a pretty terrace furnished with a table with six chairs. A few steps away is a pizza oven and barbeque. The sparkling pool is a few  steps away in a sunny corner of the garden.
Outside the villa there is a second terracotta paved terrace which is shaded by tall trees. It is furnished with a round marble and iron table with several chairs. It leads into the large kitchen.
The room is spacious with a typical Tuscan ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. It has a polished terracotta floor which enhances the traditional terracotta and wood kitchen units. A large side-board is fully equipped with crockery. The kitchen includes gas hobs, an oven, a dishwasher and two small fridges. There is a freezer located in a separate room. In the centre of the room is a large wooden dining table which seats 8 people.
From the kitchen there is access to the lounge which leads out to the front of the villa, and pool area. The floor of the room has the original terracotta tiles. In one corner is a fireplace, around which there is a triple leather sofa and three armchairs.
To one side is a spacious bathroom with shower, it has a door to the garden. To the other side of the lounge is a lovely, bright, large bedroom with a double bed in the centre of the room. Along two walls is a well stocked book case with mostly German books. In one corner is a double wardrobe and a desk with a couple of chairs.
The first floor is accessed from a stairwell off the kitchen. These are the original, narrow stairs of the villa. At the top there is the smallest of the four bedrooms. It has a very high ceiling of wooden beams and white washed terracotta tiles. The double bedroom has a glazed terracotta floor and is furnished with an antique wardrobe and dresser with mirror.
Going down a short corridor is another double bedroom. It has a king size bed and two windows overlooking the front of the property. In the room are two chests of drawers and a cot. It is a bright and spacious room.
Across the hall from this room are two bathrooms, one has a large corner bathtub while the other is with a shower. The final double bedroom is at the end of the corridor. It is a huge room with the original ceiling of wooden beams. It has a double wardrobe and two antique chests of drawers.


4 double bedrooms, they cannot be made into twin rooms.


The neighbours are permanent residents, however the Casa Tognarello has plenty of privacy.

Pool Info

The swimming pool is an oval shaped pool located a short distance behind the villa. In a shady corner of the garden near the pool is a table with chairs. The pool itself is on a narrow terraced part of the garden.
It is surrounded by a lovely stone paved deck and well maintained lawn. To one side is a grape vine covered pergola which provides shade to the sunbeds and deck chairs. Due to the vegetation around the pool area there are limited views.

Pros Grande maison rustique avec tout le confort moderne dans les salles de bains, cuisine bien équipée.
Cons Localisation très éloignée et isolée. Elle est envahie de moustiques ce qui ne permet ni de profiter pleinement de la piscine, ni de diner dehors.

Pros Het huis lag op een perfecte plek met een super uitzicht. Het zwembad was mooi onderhouden en in de tuin waren er meerdere plekken om sfeervol te zitten overdag en 's avonds. Het huis was zeer ruim met grote kamers en drie badkamers. Door de dikke stenen muren was het ook redelijk koel tijdens hete dagen. De eigenaar van het huis was zeer begaan en informeerde geregeld of wij het naar ons zin hadden. Hier komen wij graag terug!!
Cons Grote supermarkten zijn minimaal 25 minuten rijden (in Lucca). Dat is wel eens lastig. Maar dat is natuurlijk logisch gezien de rustige ligging van het huis. Er is wel een kleine supermarkt te vinden in Borgo a Mazzano.
Local attractions Lucca is een zeer mooie en gezellige plaats op zo'n 25 minuten rijden van het huis. Pisa is altijd leuk om te bekijken. Florence is zo;n 1,5 uur rijden en is een aanrader qua cultuur en winkels.
