Casa Sara, Pescaglia - Lucca and Viareggio

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.
Fire Place: Stove

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.

Casa Sara liegt auf 950 m Höhe in den Ausläufern der Apuanischen Alpen völlig einsam auf einem wunderbaren Berg mit toller Aussicht auf einen noch tolleren Berg. Besitzerin Sara hat uns trotz verspäteter Ankunft (war wirklich schwer zu finden) sehr nett empfangen und alles erklärt. Alles ist pikobello sauber, jeden Samstag wird das gesamte Haus geputzt und die Bettwäsche, Spül- und Handtücher gewechselt sowie der Swimming Pool gereinigt. Toller Service!
Durch die einsame Lage ist das Haus nicht gut als Ausflugsbasis geeignet. Alleine zum Einkaufen braucht man locker 45 Minuten und auch zur nächsten Pizzeria ungefähr 15 Minuten. Allerdings sollte man dann nichts trinken, da die Rückfahrt über den schmalsten Teil der Anfahrtsstraße zurückführt.
Dafür kann man toll spazierengehen, auf der Terrasse sitzen, lesen, schwimmen, kochen usw. Wer einen ruhigen Entpannungsurlaub sucht, ist hier genau richtig.
Leider keine deutschen Sender im TV (nur italienische Smartcard) und das Satelliten-Internet hat nicht richtig funktioniert. Mobilfunkempfang sehr, sehr schwach. Telefonieren kann man, wenn man zum Aussichtstisch hoch läuft.
Local attractions - Lucca - Viareggio - Florenz - Restaurant Alto Matanna zu Fuss in ca. 40 min erreichbar. Immer den Berg hoch, dort fangen viele Wanderwege an. Dort haben wir eine tolle Bergplatte mit Käse, Schinken und Salami bekommen. - Passstraße von Castelnuovo di Garfagnana nach Massa mit tollen Ausblick auf die Marmorbrüche mit toller Pause und gutem Essen in Isola Santa
