This spacious 300-year-old farmhouse has bags of character. The owners have cleverly added touches of modern luxury in the bathrooms and kitchen, while the original terracotta floors, stone walls, high ceilings, exposed beams and scattered antiques speak of history. Casa Tognarello will easily absorb up to eight guests, its large rooms, terraces and private pool offering parties of family or friends the chance to gather or chill out separately, as moods dictate.
It will be genuinely difficult to stir from this house and substantial garden, with its pool and views of surrounding mountainous terrain, but medieval Lucca and Barga are close by, with Pisa less than an hour’s drive. If your party is more activity orientated, the beach and carnival at Viareggio are also within easy reach; or choose from local walking, cycling, tennis (Lucca) or golf (Massarosa). In the heat, the house is delightfully cool. Two terraces, both with table and chairs, offer alternatives for outdoor dining in a balmy evening breeze. As the summer wanes, an open fireplace in the lounge beckons.

Our Thoughts
Casa Tognarello’s beautiful rooms and rural setting offer a holiday that will live in the memory for a lifetime. Where else will you find an artwork made from a 1951 Moto Guzzi motorbike on the bathroom wall, together with an exquisite antique side table and bookcase of German literature? One day, the pool will be the favourite hangout, the next perhaps the welcoming kitchen or light-filled lounge. Generous is the word that seems to sum it all up.
Notes
Four bedrooms. Three bathrooms. An elderly person lives next door whose cats you are likely to see, but this will not affect your privacy. You are welcome to help yourself to fruit from the garden.

Es ist ein sehr schönes Haus, nur die Einfahrt zum Haus ist ein wenig schwierig.
Es ist in dem Haus alles vorhanden Geschirr usw. die Bäder sind sehr schön fast wie neu. Es sind 4 geräumige Schlafzimmer im Haus.
Alles gut.
Local attractions Im Ort ist eine Pizzeria die ist zu Empfehlen, hat aber nur Donnerstag bis Sonntag geöffnet. Einkaufen kann man 10 Kilometer weiter in einem Supermarkt da bekommt man alles. 1 Kilometer vom Haus gibt es eine Bäckerei und halt Kleinigkeiten.

Dom jest pięknie położony w górach, z fantastycznym gajem oliwnym. Jest usytuowany na zboczu, więc najmniejsze dzieci mogą mieć problem z zabawą na powietrzu. Starszaki zaś będą bawić się doskonale.
Większość sypialni jest umieszczona na piętrze i dostać się do nich można tylko po dość stromych schodach. Ale wszystkie urządzone są ładnie. To samo dotyczy łazienek, które są czyste i przestronne (z prawdziwymi motocyklami na ścianach :-) )

Trzeba mieć tylko na uwadze ogromną ilość komarów, ale to już nie wina domu tylko pory roku. W domu na szczęście w większości okien są moskitiery, więc w nocy to nie przeszkadza.

Vielen Dank für den tollen Empfang mit einem gedeckten Tisch. Eine super schnelle Übergabe. Ein wunderschönes Haus in einer tollen Lage. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, um den täglichen Bedarf abzudecken. Es ist sehr persönlich eingerichtet. Das einzige Manko waren die bösen Stechmücken, die trotz diverser Sprays nicht fern blieben.
Local attractions Vor Ort gibt es eine Mappe des Eigentümers, da stehen sehr viele gute Tipps drin. Vor allem der Weinladen war super.

We had a fantastic family holiday, grandparents, children & their partners, and a 2 year old. The villa is exactly as we hoped, very old, large, massive rooms, spacious, well appointed, well equipped in a lovely situation on the side of a hill with a swimming pool & large gardens and orchards. We felt as if we were staying on the owner's personal house. It was a privilege. On arrival, late evening, the kitchen table was spread with cold meats, cheese, bread, olives and even a bottle of wine! We can't recommend it too highly.
Local attractions Lucca is a lovely medieval town with narrow streets & tall buildings & is well worth a visit or two. Park outside the walls, which isn't difficult. Coming in at Porta San Maria & walking down to Piazza San Michele takes you through the tourist heart which is probably best avoided. Porat San Pietro, the other side of the city, is quieter & more natural. The cathedral Duomo di San Martino is worth a visit for the black wooden Christ & interesting side chapels. Castelnuovo is also a nice little town for wandering about in & drinking in the bars.

Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir bereits von der Haushälterin und ihrem Mann erwartet. Wir wurden mit den wichtigsten Dingen im und um das Haus vertaut gemacht. Die Hilfsbereitschaft fanden wir Klasse, bei einer kleinen "Exkursion" zeigten sie uns die nächsten Einkaufmöglichkeiten und Restaurants.

Das Haus und die Lage haben unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Wir, 2 Familien mit je einem 13 jährigen Sohn, haben uns in der Casa Tognarello sofort heimisch gefühlt. Die Ausstattung des Objektes ist sehr gut (Bäder, Schlafzimmer, Küche, Aufenthaltsraum). Im Außenbereich haben uns der saubere Pool mit herrlichem Landschaftsblick und die verschiedenen beschatteten Sitzgruppen überzeugt.
Die Zufahrt zum Objekt ist für tiefergelegte Fahrzeuge nicht geeignet, aber ansonsten machbar.
Local attractions Von der Casa Tognarello kann man sehenswerte Ausflüge unternehmen. Wir waren z. B. in Florenz, in Pisa, in der Grotta del Vento und natürlich in Lucca. Für uns der schönste Strand ist "Marina di Vecchiano", den Strand erreicht man über die A11, Abfahrt Pisa Nord, nach der Mautstelle links knapp 1km Richtung Pisa, danach rechts durch eine Brücke Richtung Migliarino und weiter der Beschilderung "Marina" folgen. Ein sehr einfaches, preiswertes Restaurant mit sehr guter Küche haben wir leider erst kurz vor Ende unserer Reise gefunden. Es liegt direkt östlich der Brücke "Ponte della Maddalena" in Borgo a Mozzano (15 min. Fahrzeit)

Superb location with fantastic views. Excellent facilities; 3.5 acres of land with fruit tress, 2 shelters with grape vine roofs (and grapes!), nice pool and full size wood fired pizza over. The property also a bit eccentric and interesting; kitchen has a full size commercial Berkel meat slicer and 2 bathrooms have vintage (full size) Moto Guzzi motorbikes mounted on their wall.
Local attractions Up the valley is canoeing, canyoning and climbing. Down the valley is Lucca or Pisa and it's excellent restaurants. In the village is an excellent bakery and next village nearby has the Penny Market (think of an Italian "Lidl") with great Chianti at 3.5 Euro and Prosecco at 3 Euro.
