Casa Tognarello is a typical Tuscan villa, most of it was built 300 years ago. It’s built from natural stone and as a result remains pleasantly cool even in the summer heat with terracotta tile floors and wooden beam ceilings exuding atmosphere. The rustic styled exterior of the villa has remained untouched and the rooms have been lovingly renovated and furnished to suit modern levels of comfort.
In front of  the main entrance there is a vine covered pergola which shades a pretty terrace furnished with a marble table with six chairs. Attached to the house there is a wood fired pizza oven, a few steps away is a barbeque.  Next to the house stands an old stable  which serves as a shady carport.  The swimming pool is on the highest garden terrace and offers a panoramic view of the surrounding mountainous terrain.
Behind the villa there is a second terracotta paved terrace shaded by tall trees. It is furnished with a round marble table and 8 chairs. To the northern side of this terrace empty buildings can be seen, where in former times farm workers used to live.
The large kitchen (35 m²) has a polished terracotta floor which enhances the wooden kitchen units. The sideboard is fully equipped with crockery. The kitchen includes a gas cooker with oven, 2 fridges, dishwasher and ample kitchenware. There is a bigger fridge and freezer located in a separate room next door. In the center of the room there is a large wooden dining table which seats 8 people.
From the kitchen there is access to the lounge which leads out to the front of the villa, and pool area. In one corner is a fireplace, around which there is a triple leather sofa and three armchairs.
On one side is a spacious bathroom with shower and a 1951 Moto Guzzi veteran motorbike (turned art, on the wall),, it has a door to the garden. To the other side of the lounge is a lovely, bright, large bedroom with a double bed in the centre of the room. Along two walls is a well stocked book case with mostly German books. In one corner is a double wardrobe and a desk with a couple of chairs.
The first floor is accessed from a stairwell off the kitchen. These are the original, narrow stairs of the villa. At the top there is the first of the four bedrooms. It has a very high ceiling of wooden beams and white washed terracotta tiles. The double bedroom has a glazed terracotta floor and is furnished with an antique wardrobe and dresser with mirror.
Going down a short corridor is another double bedroom (with morning sun). It has a king size bed and two windows overlooking the former access to the villa and the back patio. In the room there are two chests of drawers, an antique wardrobe and a cot. It is a bright and spacious room.
On this floor there are two luxurious bathrooms. One has a large corner bathtub and another Moto Guzzi, while the other one has a shower and a washing machine.  The last double bedroom is at the end of the corridor. It is huge and impressive with its  original ceiling of wooden beams. It is furnished with a Tuscan wardrobe, an iron bed and two antique chests of drawers.


4 double bedrooms, they cannot be made into twin rooms.


An elderly Italian resident lives in the house next door, this does not affect the privacy of Casa Tognarello. There are cats around the property who belong to this resident.

There is 15000 sqm of land around the villa which is not fenced. This is composed of olive trees and friut trees. Guests can help themselves to the friut when in season.

Size of the rooms - kitchen included. Excellent bathrooms. The spectacular view of surrounding hills and mountains. Easy walking distance to nice ristorante/osteria. Very peaceful. The grapes were wonderful. The vintage motorbikes in the bathrooms and the fact that the bathrooms were large enough for them!
The driveway was a little daunting at first - don't arrive in the dark!
Local attractions The local osteria and La Terrazza at the roundabout. Close to Lucca. Villa Reale. Easy drives to Pisa, Florence and Cinque Terre.

Dom położony w przepięknym miejscu, bardzo dobrze wyposażony w niezbędny sprzęt, w domu panuje ciepła atmosfera. Bardzo fajny ogród z basenem, cudowne miejsce na wypoczynek i zwiedzanie. Niedaleko położona jest Lucca, Pizza, Viareggio. Polecam restaurację w Pescaglii- La Fonte. Właściciel domu bardzo pomocny. Nie było żadnego problemu. Duże przestronne pokoje. Jeśli ktoś chce poznać prawdziwy klimat Toskanii polecam.
Generalnie wszystko było ok, może trochę słaby sygnał wi-fi, ale to na wczasach nie jest niezbędne.

quiet location, architecture, the huge kitchen, the bathrooms with the 2 Moto Guzzis hanging, the pizza oven, the spacious rooms. The pool.

The welcome was very nice, the cleaning lady was there, luckily I am fluent in Italian, and asked the right questions about the house, because unfortunately she didn't really volunteer much info.
Outside your control: the heat and the very agressive mosquitoes!!!

For the heat: no fans :-( - especially because due to the mosquitoes we could not open most windows, otherwise you'd get eaten alive all day and night. There was one fan on the 1st floor, but broken. It's possible that with normal temperatures the house keeps its coolness all day, but that week was horribly hot, and with no air circulation, catch 22.... And, again because of the "tiger" mosquitoes, we couldn't use the pool as much as we would have liked.

The road going up to the house was a killer, but again, that's life... very charming stone path, but painful to drive, and painful thinking about our tires and suspension while driving up or down.

Wifi: one router hidden in the corner of the bedroom on the ground floor. A more central location (kitchen) or routers on both floors would be great. I know it's holiday, and one should switch off from technology, but the wifi is offered and we counted on it to plan activities, and more.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

Owner Comment: The driveway is a little bumpy but if you approach slowly there is no problem. There was a considerable outbreak of mosquitoes this year. A bottle of DEET and electronic devices were left for clients to help with this. All the windows now have mosquito nets in the house. There are spiral coil repellents in the kitchen drawer which can be burned whilst sitting outside in the evening. The WIFI works well apart from a couple of rooms where the walls are too thick. There are fans available on the second floor.

Prachttuin,zwembad, idyllische zitjes, oude details, wel nieuw, fraai sanitair, grote ruimtes, enorme goed geoutilleerde woonkeuken. Extra vriezer/koelkast in bijkeuken, handig met twee gezinnen!
Toegangsweg lastig zeker ih donker, muggenplaag ( ondanks dat voorzorgsmaatregelen in ruime mate aanwezig waren volledig lekgeprikt en s avonds niet lang buiten kunnen zitten), geen ventilatoren/airco (warmte was m.n. boven 's nachts enorm) Niet voor elk raam hor/luik. Ook misten we n bbq of hebben we hem niet gevonden?
Local attractions De Ostaria beneden in Dezza is n absolute aanrader. Lopend bereikbaar. Heerlijk gegeten in het tuintje ad overkant vd weg. Lucca natuurlijk! Prachtige vrije! zandstranden ten zuiden van Viareggio (10km lang)helemaal doorrijden naar einde vd boulevard met alle private beaches en vervolgens pad door de duintjes, mooi natuurgebied.

The access road is a bumpy road but passable in all weather conditions. The BBQ was situated in the barn. We are sorry you did not find it. It is advisable to go well equipped with insect repellent to Tuscany. However, there are spirals in the kitchen drawer to help also.

Het huis lag op een perfecte plek met een super uitzicht. Het zwembad was mooi onderhouden en in de tuin waren er meerdere plekken om sfeervol te zitten overdag en 's avonds. Het huis was zeer ruim met grote kamers en drie badkamers. Door de dikke stenen muren was het ook redelijk koel tijdens hete dagen. De eigenaar van het huis was zeer begaan en informeerde geregeld of wij het naar ons zin hadden. Hier komen wij graag terug!!
Grote supermarkten zijn minimaal 25 minuten rijden (in Lucca). Dat is wel eens lastig. Maar dat is natuurlijk logisch gezien de rustige ligging van het huis. Er is wel een kleine supermarkt te vinden in Borgo a Mazzano.
Local attractions Lucca is een zeer mooie en gezellige plaats op zo'n 25 minuten rijden van het huis. Pisa is altijd leuk om te bekijken. Florence is zo;n 1,5 uur rijden en is een aanrader qua cultuur en winkels.
