Casa Tamara is a wonderful Tuscan villa on two floors with excellent views, situated in the hills between Lucca and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. It is located on a small farm which produces vegetable, fruit, jams and olive oil.
There is a private pool a short distance away next to the owner's villa. From the pool area there are wonderful views of the valley and the Apuane Alps in the distance. The owners do not use the pool.
The sloped gardens of the property are carefully maintained, on the lower level, a few steps away from the villa is the outside eating area. It is a lovely, shaded wooden table with benches that looks out to the great views. Attached to the front of the villa is a wonderful loggia which has been furnished with a rattan sofa, two matching armchairs and a table. From here guests can enjoy some lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
Inside the villa, on the ground floor is an open plan kitchen-diner and lounge. Along one wall of the room is the fully equipped kitchen unit which includes gas hobs, an oven and a fridge with separate freezer. Directly in front of this is a heavy, wooden table surrounded by a bench and four chairs. The washing machine is located at the back of the kitchen through the wooden door.
The lounge area is to the other side of the room. It has a double sofa facing the television. The entire room has a wonderful, warm wooden floor. There are two sets of glass doors which face the views and provide plenty of light, they open into the lower garden.
A stone staircase leads to the first floor where there is a bathroom on the left. It is a large room with a shower with no shower tray. The first of the two bedrooms is a bright double bedroom with an iron bed and a double door wardrobe. A Juliette balcony facing the main views while a window looks out to the side of the property.
At the opposite end of the landing is the second bedroom. It has an iron double bed and a Juliette balcony and window which look to the views and fill the room with light. In the room is a double door wardrobe.
2 double bedrooms which cannot be set up as twin rooms
The owners live in a neighbouring villa. They produce and sell fruit and vegetables, and their own jams and olive oil.
The property is not fenced
Casa Tamara has a bathroom adapted for guests with limited mobility. There is also a stair lift available for the staircase, while the gardens have sloped areas for easy access. The stair lift can also be used with a wheelchair. There are steps to the pool.

Pool Info

The pool is located next to the owner's villa, a short distance from Casa Tamara. It is private to the guests of Casa Tamara, the owners do not use it. It is necessary to pass the owner's house to get to the pool, however it is overlooked only by one window of the house so there is some privacy.

From the area there is a fantastic view, down the hill, into the valley and across onto the magnificent mountains beyond. There are roman steps to enter the crystal water. There is a pretty wooden fence to the side of the slope, however children can pass through it.

Stay: August 2016
Wir wohnten in einer unglaublich schönen Idylle, ein tolles Haus mit herrlichem Pool und einer traumhaften Aussicht. Vom ersten Tag an fasziniert und sofort entschlossen in den nächsten Jahren wieder dort Urlaub zu machen. Viel zu viel hatten wir eingepackt, weil wirklich alles, was man zum Leben benötigt, vorhanden war. Sogar der Supermarkt in Piano hatte Sonntag bis 12.30 Uhr geöffnet; somit konnten wir sogleich am nächsten Tag alles an Lebensmitteln einkaufen. Wir wurden bereits am ersten Abend von unseren Vermietern zum Essen eingeladen und konnten die Familie gleich kennen lernen. Wir sind sehr sehr froh, dass wir solch tolle und unglaublich liebenswerte Menschen kennen lernen durften...Danke für einen unvergesslichen Urlaub...:)
Local attractions Mit den Kindern sind wir in einen Kletterwald gefahren. Es ist perfekt organisiert und wirklich keine Gefahr, weder für Groß noch Klein. Wir waren dort den ganzen Tag beschäftigt und hat allen großen Spaß gemacht. An einem Tag sind wir nach Cecina an den Strand gefahren; unser Pool hat uns jedoch besser gefallen...

Ein wunderschönes Haus mit traumhaftem Ausblick. Die Pizza von Hausherrin Tamara ist einfach nur Klasse und auch die aus eigenem Anbau stammenden Früchte und Tomaten sind unbeschreiblich !

Stay: June 2016
It has been a very pleasant experience. The location is great, can get stunning views from different places, the view of fireflies after sunset is very romatic. The condition of the villa and pool is excellant, a late afternoon dip in the pool is just wonderful.
Tamara, the landlord was very helpful and welcoming, she made two very authentic Italian meals including pizza, rustic bread, home made wine, home made parma ham and etc. She also gave us some valuable advices of point of interests.
We are very happy, we will definetely recommend others to stay at Casa Tamara.
Local attractions A nearby town called Barga is worth for a visit, and also Bagni di Lucca. No restaurants can provide better foods than Tamara's food :)

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances grâce au merveilleux accueil de Tamara et de sa famille. Ses nombreuses invitations : soupe, drink, pizza,gâteau...tout était prétexte à faire connaissance et à sympathiser. Les nombreux cadeaux provenant de son jardin : fruits, legumes, vins,marmelades...nous ont fait sentir comme en vacances chez des amis.
La maison est décorée avec goût et pratique. La piscine toujours impeccable.
Local attractions Nous avons visité Pise, Florence, Barga mais aussi La Grotta del Vento et Orrido di Botri (gorges) sous les conseils de Tamara.

Tamara made us feel so welcome, the house is very new and has everything you need to have a great holiday. The pool was fantastic for our 9 year old, with amazing views across the valley. Casa Tamara is in a great location with somebeautiful towns nearby . Would definitely go back. Only downside was directions once in Piano de corneglia were a little vague !
Local attractions Barga is a beautiful town and some beautiful restaurants up at the top. Lucca very busy but absolutely worth visiting .
