La Vista is a cosy first floor Tuscan villa located in the tiny Brandeglio village. It has a lovely, private terracotta paved terrace which looks out towards the fantastic views of the forest covered Hills.
It is accessed from the ground floor by a narrow spiral staircase which leads into the open plan living room. This bright room has a table with two chairs below a window that looks onto the terrace. Against the back wall is a fully equipped kitchenette which includes gas hobs, an oven and a small fridge with internal icebox. Completing the furnishings is an antique sideboard with a marble top providing plenty of work space. A second window looks out to the village.
The double bedroom is to the right of the stairs. It is a spacious room with the original terracotta tiles on the floor and a high ceiling. In one corner is an open fireplace for the cooler nights. The furnishings include a wardrobe, TV and some open shelves. En-suite is a luminous bathroom with shower.
This villa is not recommended for people with any sort of mobility problems as the stairs are steep and narrow.
There is no sofa in the villa.

Resort: Brandeglio

Brandeglio hamlet is a composed of 4 little villas located in a tiny stone village of the same name. Only a short drive away is the pretty spa town Bagni di Lucca. The little village has a population of only about 40 people and is peaceful even in the summer months.
The apartments all face out towards the terraced garden and pool area from which there are fantastic views of the forest covered hills. From the pool one can also admire another medieval stone village perched on the hills across the valley.
The quiet location is perfect to relax and get away from the hectic towns. Communal to the four apartments is a large paved and covered terrace that is furnished with tables and chairs facing the excellent views. To one side is a barbeque with pizza oven.

Pool Info

The prefabricated shared pool is located in the large, terraced garden private to the properties of Brandeglio. The pool area is on a lower level compared to the building and it is simply maintained with a pretty lawn and local plants and trees.
Around part of the pool is a paved deck with a few sun loungers and umbrellas that look out over the crystal water onto the hills covered with forests in the distance.  The pool is 8.5 x 4.50 metres and 1.3 metres deep. It is a salt cleansed pool and is open from beginning May to the end of September. It is not heated and due to the location in the hills the water will be quite cool even in the summer.

Stay: August 2016
La Vista is a charming apartment set in a sleepy hilltop village. The balcony, that overlooks villages at the other side of the valley, is magical, especially at night under a starry sky with the hourly sounds of church bells ringing. There is also a table and chairs for outdoor dining and a two seater ideal for reading a book or sipping a glass of wine. The kitchen is well equipped with cooking utensils, though the small freezer component of the fridge did not work so well. Stock up on groceries before reaching Brandeligo as there is no shop in the village. The 15min drive to the village from the main road is challenging with a narrow twisting road to the top. Having said that, it is definitely worth the challenge. Since the villa is located at the end of a narrow cobbled street, it is not accessible by car. The owners provide a wheelbarrow to assist in getting luggage to and from the villa. The car is then parked (for free) in the village carpark which is about a 5-10min walk from the villa. The wifi is sufficiently strong for light surfing of the internet, checking emails and so on. The television in the bedroom has a USB port ideal for watching downloaded movies and tv shows on rainy days. The pool is shared with two other villas and remains in sunlight until about 5pm (in August). There are enough sun beds and parasols/shade from nearby pear trees for everybody. There is also a BBQ, outdoor wood oven and a laundry room for general use.

We had a wonderful time here. La Vista is the perfect spot for unwinding and utter relaxation. We would highly recommend this off the beaten track for a quiet getaway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here - the apartment is clean, well equipped and cosy and the view from the balcony is mind-blowing. The village itself is small and v. quiet - bliss! You will definitely need a car to get there though - googlemaps GPS navigated us perfectly.

The bed was comfortable with extra pillows and blankets which came in handy as our second day/night was chilly and rainy. We were pleased to see an outside 2-seater cushioned chair had been added to the balcony - comfy seating for reading! The TV has a USB port so it's well worth loading a USB stick with films etc. if you want to watch something other than the news etc - this came in handy on our one rainy day.

The pool was lovely, well needed on the very hot days we had! Plenty of poolside loungers and umbrellas around the poolside and surrounded by garden, plants and flowers. Beautiful!

Our only disappointment was that the wifi did not work.This spoiled the experience a bit as we were hoping to be able to plan day trips and find info about supermarket open/close times, destinations etc.especially as we were so remote and away from everything. Instead we had walk down the mountain road to grab a weak mobile signal on the roadside to check things which really wasn't ideal or very safe. We did contact the owner about it but nothing was sorted. There is also no kettle in the kitchen as advertised but we made do by boiling water in a pan on the gas stove.

Despite this the owner was friendly and left easy instructions to access the key and apartment when our arrival was delayed, and checked in with us several times via Whatsapp so thank you!
Local attractions Bagni di Lucca is lovely - we found Circolo dei Forestieri served fantastic food and their terrace overlooks the river which is just beautiful. We took an hour drive to Lucca and caught a train to Florence for the day which was brilliant but without wifi we couldn't properly plan what we wanted to see/do there - so do your research before your trip! Despite this we enjoyed walking around and seeing the architecture.

Thank you for your comments. The owner was sorry to hear that the WiFi was not working as it should. This has been checked and is working fine. If there are adverse weather conditions in Italy there can sometimes be issues. This is due to the rural area where it's not possible to have a strong and stable connection as you would find in a city centre. There is a stove top kettle at the villa. The owner will also add an electric kettle.

La Vista liegt in einem ruhigen kleinen Dorf. Man hat einen super Ausblick, vom Balkon als auch vom Pool aus. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll eingerichtet und perfekt ausgestattet. Morgens schien die Sonne auf den Balkon, die dann in den späten Nachmittagsstunden leider ums Haus zog. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt!
Local attractions Barga hat uns sehr gefallen.

Située dans un petit village typique, familial et tout à fait bon enfant, ce petit nid d'amour à réussi à allier calme, vue magnifique et alentours touristiques.
Les propriétaires sont charmants et parlent anglais !!
Les autres locataires étaient de diverses nationalités, ce qui n'à pas nul à notre dépaysement.
Il est possible qu'on y retourne une prochaine année ..
Local attractions Pisa à 30 km, Florence un peu plus loin mais ça vaut le détour .., Perçoit et Pescia, monte catini j'ai adoré et bien sûr Lucca. Pour les restaurants, nos préférés sont incontestablement le cavalier blanc à Benabio , un petit village perché lui-aussi (c'est le restaurateur qui vous explique la carte en italien/anglais et quelques mots en français, la cuisine est typique et presque familiale, le village mériterait d'être peint ..) et plus simple d'accès, et plus sophistiqué à bagni Di Lucca, del sono.

La vue magnifique et l'accueil des villageois dans un endroit très peu fréquenté par les touristes. Une belle expérience humaine.
En raison des fortes chaleurs, il nous a été impossible de "rafraîchir" l'appartement. Rien n'était prévu pour ce faire (ventilateur ou climatisation). C'est un petit bémol.
Local attractions Dans l'ordre Barga (dans les montagnes - très bon restaurant), Lucca, la villa Reale et la Villa Grabau (périphérie de Lucca) et enfin Pise.

Wenn man Urlaub fernab von Touristentrubel sucht und sich ein paar Tage entspannen möchte, ist Brandeglio dafür perfekt. Hinzu kam in unserem Fall, daß wir die einzigen Gäste waren - Abgeschiedenheit pur!! Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen. Man sitzt auf dem Balkon oder am Pool, schaut auf die gegenüberliegenden Berge und hört einfach nichts.-Perfekt!!
Local attractions Wer gerne wandert und das nicht nur auf einfachen Wegen, dem kann ich nur die Wanderrouten von und um Fornovolasco empfehlen. Verschiedene Wege und Pfade führen zu dem Monte Forato, einem riesigen Felsentor mit Blick ins Tal - dieser entschädigt für alle Mühen. Tagesausflüge nach Lucca oder etwas weiter nach Volterra sind ebenfalls empfehlenswert.

Die Aussicht und die Ruhe waren fantastisch. Der Vermieter war sehr nett und die Schlüsselübergabe hat ganz unkompliziert funktioniert. In der Ferienwohnung, speziell in der Küche, ist alles da, was man braucht.
Nur ein kleiner Minuspunkt, der auch nur in der kalten Jahreszeit auftritt: Der Kaminabzug der Wohnung untendrunter ist direkt vor der Terrasse im oberen Stockwerk. Wenn die unten frieren und den Kamin anwerfen, sitzt man oben (jenachdem wie der Wind steht) im Qualm.
Local attractions Brandeglio ist ein traumhaft verschlafenes Dorf, in dem man zum Ende des Sommers nur wenige Menschen trifft. Am Ortseingang gibt es eine Bar/Pizzeria, wo es echt leckere Pizza gibt. Ansonsten sollte man sich bewusst sein, dass es vom Dorf zur Straße runter etwa 15 Minuten dauert. Und auch dann sind Städte wie Pisa und Florenz noch weit entfernt. Für einen Ausflugsurlaub ist Brandeglio deshalb nicht geeignet. Wer es ruhig angeht und keinen Sightseeing-Plan hat, der kann es sich hier gut gehen lassen.
