Casa Sara, Pescaglia - Lucca

2 bedrooms 1 bathroom 4 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Casa Sara, a lovely property set in the peaceful hills above Lucca and Forte dei Marmi, is the perfect mountain retreat for a family who are looking for a secluded hideaway. Make this your base if you enjoy outdoor activities, because there is good walking, cycling and horse-riding to be had nearby. Alternatively, Bagni di Lucca, with its historic hot springs, is within easy reach if you fancy a traditional ‘spa treatment’. Or, perhaps just enjoy this tranquil spot by staying put around the private pool, where days can easily be whiled away splashing around and lounging on sunbeds enjoying the views of the forest-clad mountains.

The semi-detached stone villa has been well-renovated and offers cosy traditional lodgings on two levels. The open-plan living space on the ground floor retains original features, such as a partly exposed stone wall, terracotta-tiled floor and a beamed ceiling and all rooms are comfortably furnished in typical local style. The upstairs bedrooms have lush mountain views, but surely one of the best places to admire these from is the shaded terrace, where you can pull up an armchair or come together for an al-fresco meal.

Our Thoughts
We love this typical Tuscan mountain villa for its isolated location. It offers our guests a really different experience and the opportunity to take a truly tranquil rural break. The slow pace of life in the mountains can be enjoyed in the nearby villages of Pascoso and Matanna, where there are good-quality restaurants. It’s a good base for sightseeing, too – the walled city of Lucca is within reach and even the coast at Viareggio isn’t too far for a day trip.

Notes
Two bedrooms. One bathroom. The villa adjoins the property of a family member of the owner, who mostly uses the house at weekends. The nearest supermarket is a 40-minute drive, although there is a small town 12 kilometres away with a grocery, and there are two restaurants nearby. The road to Casa Sara passes through hilly terrain. The bedroom with bunk beds is suitable for two children.

Pool
The pool is located next to the villa and is surrounded by a paved sundeck, furnished with loungers and an umbrella. The water is accessed via metal ladder steps. The terraced edge of the garden is fenced, but there is no gate, so it is not totally child-safe. 6x3 mtrs, 1.2mtrs deep. Open from May to September, weather permitting.

Prachtige ligging is alleen lastig te bereiken doordat het hoog in de bergen ligt. Het bied100% privacy . Je bent ongeveer 50 min van boven naar beneden bezig om boodschappen te doen en dan maar hopen dat je geen tegenliggers tegen komt (laatste 5 km naar huis is zeer smalle weg).
Kortom als je van rust houd zoals wij is dit een perfect huis en eigenaren zijn ook heel gastvrij
