La Cuculiera is a wonderfully restored, semi-detached, two storey Tuscan villa. This hillside property has the most spectacular views of the distant mountains and valley floor. Due to its location, La Cuculiera offers guests a very private and tranquil getaway in the Tuscan sunshine. The town of Pescaglia is only 4km away.
A few metres away from the villa is the private, pre-fabricated pool. On one side of the raised swimming pool is a paved terrace which is furnished with sun loungers and parasols. From here there are breathtaking views of the mountains and sweeping valley below.
At the side of the villa is a paved terrace which is covered by a gazebo. It is furnished with a stone picnic table with bench seating. Next to the terrace is a stone built barbecue. The terrace is the perfect spot to dine al-fresco while enjoying the wonderful views and garden.
The front door of the villa leads into a small hall which provides access to the open plan lounge, kitchen and diner. This room has a traditional terracotta tiled floor and wood beam ceiling. In one corner is the original open fireplace, which can be used for those cooler Tuscan evenings. The lounge area is furnished with a double sofa and a wooden dining table with seating for six and a flat screen television.
The kitchen is situated at the back of the room and comprises of gas hobs, an oven, microwave, dishwasher and a fridge with a freezer compartment. There is plenty of cupboard space and tableware available.
Off the lounge is a small hall, from which there is access to a compact bathroom with shower. The washing machine is in this bathroom. A flight of wooden stairs lead up to a cosy open mezzanine bedroom which is furnished with a double bed and a chair. The windows in the room offer more of the wonderful views.
Off a small hall from the lounge is a flight of wooden stairs which lead up to the first floor. The first bedroom on the left is comfortably furnished with a double bed and a chair. There are wonderful views from the window.
The second bedroom is furnished with two single beds and a wooden chair. The window in the room allows light to enter and offers more of the lovely views. Opposite the room is a bathroom with shower.
2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom
The twin beds can be converted into a double if requested when booking.
The left side of the building belongs to a different  owner but it is not occupied although they do use it occasionally.

Wer es puristisch und entlegen mag ist hier genau richtig. Natur pur mit tollem Ausblick. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll eingerichtet. Neueres Bad im Obergeschoss. Wunderschönes Grundstück mit schönem Pool, der allerdings etwas in die Jahre gekommen ist. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Pas de rangement dans la pièce isolée...semaine passée dans nos valises.
Suggestion : possibilité d'installer une armoire dans l'espace du bas menant à la salle de bain.
Dans la salle de bain vasque de lavabo pourrait être remplacée.
Problème avec la machine à laver la vaisselle.
Cadre agréable au calme, très bon accueil, piscine appréciée particulièrement par les enfants.
...un peu compliqué pour accéder à l'endroit.

Heerlijk rustig gelegen in een mooie omgeving.
Mooie tochten in de omgeving en bezoek aan Lucca en Pistoia. Heerlijk eten en drinken in de wijde omgeving (Helaas biedt Pescaglia zelf helemaal niets!)

Helaas door de ligging op 900 meter (verrassing-wordt nergens genoemd in de brochure) kon het onverwarmde zwembad in september niet gebruikt worden.
Het huis heeft geen WiFi zoals vermeld in de brochure; WiFi is alleen beschikbaar via de dongel (@ € 10 per week) en dan nog is de ontvangst uiterst beperkt en zeer traag.
Comfort in het huis is beperkt.

I loved the remote location, the views, the deep peace of the mountains and woodland, the wonderful pool, and the garden. The raised area with parasol was one of our favourite places to spend time. The friendly and helpful key holders were quick to respond if we had any queries. The house had a lot of character and history, along with very good facilities.
It would maybe have been nice to have some books and guides to the area, and some board games in case of rainy days. The sofa in the main room was a bit uncomfortable for watching the TV (though we hardly used it!). But these were minor things. Overall we had a great week.
Local attractions We enjoyed day trips to Lucca and Barga, to the supermarket at Marlia to stock up. We dropped into the bar in Pescaglia to pass time while we waited to pick up the keys on arrival, but really we spent most of our time relaxing in the garden.

Das Haus war sehr schön und zweckmäßig eigerichtet, viele Dekos.
Es war weit weg vom Massentourismus und ruhig gelegen, der Pool war super und hat immer für eine frische Abkühlung gesorgt. Die Vermieter waren sehr bemüht, allerdings sollte man sich ein Wörterbuch mitnehmen, da beide nicht die Englische Sprache beherschten. Wenn man italienisch konnte kein Problem. Probleme wurde schnell beseitigt. Bsp. Kühlschrank ging kaputt, innerhalb einer Stunde hatten wir einen neuen.
Für Kleinkinder eher ungeeignet, da es im Garten (Hanglage) viele Stolperfallen gab. Mann sollte auch sagen das das Haus auf 1000 Höhenmeter liegt, immer 10 C° kühler als unten. Das Einkaufen stellte sich als sehr aufwendig dar, da der nächste größere Supermakt wie Penny Markt und Metzger in Borgo Mozano (auf der Hauptstrasse nach dem Kreisverkehtr links), ca. 20 KM (45 min einfache fahrt) weit weg war. Ansonsten bis nach Lucca fahren (60 min einfache Fahrt) da gab es dann Carfour oder Eselunga (ca. 30 KM),mini Lebensmittelgeschäfte für das nötigste gab es auch. Eins davon war im Restaurant Colleto (unten an den Mülleimer rechts und ca. 2 Km fahren). Hatten festgestellt das Pescaglia zwar ein Ort ist aber zugleich auch ein Landkreis, daher war die Beschreibung von Läden, Restaurants und Bars auf mehrer kleine Orte verteilt. Wenn man also Ausgehen will fährt man am besten nach Lucca. Flanieren in unmittelbarer Nähe ist nicht möglich, Walsdpaziergäge eher. Internetverbindung eher langsam, am besten Gerät beim Check in gleich Prüfen. Zum Meer musste man nach Viareggio direkter Weg über Bergpass (Serpentinen) 30 KM (ca. 120 min) oder über Lucca und Autobahn (60 KM) 90 min einfache Strecke. Die Bergstrasse zur Cuculiera beginnt bereits 16 Km vorher in Diecimo, das heißt Fahrzeit ab hier ca. 30 min. Die Abfalleimer ca. 1,5 Km bom Haus entfernt.
Local attractions Lucca, sehr schöne Altstadt mit allem was man braucht. Restaurant Colleto ca 2 KM vom Haus entfernt, unten an den Mülleimer rechts hafhren.Restaurant sehr zu empfehlen, gute Preise einfache Speisekarte (Preise stehen nicht drauf, sind aber günstig, am besten vorher fragen.

As in the description, this hillside property has the most spectacular views of the distant mountains and valley floor. Due to its location, La Cuculiera offers guests a very private and tranquil getaway in the Tuscan sunshine. The house is located in the mountain and offers a beautiful view. It is ideal for those who want to stay and relax with nature. Being in the mountains, it can certainly be cooler.

Wir sind begeistert - alles war einfach nur perfekt ! Wenn man so seinen Urlaub verbringen möchte,- in aller Ruhe & Einsamkeit .Es war für uns perfekt und wir kommen im nächsten Jahr wieder !
Etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig war die Tatsache, das bei der Objektübernahme,- übergabe, der Verwalter (?) kein Wort deutsch (verständlich) oder englisch verstanden hat. Unsere Befürchtungen nicht alles richtig verstanden zu haben, und daher u.U. Fehler zu machen ( Müllentsorgung usw. ), erwiesen sich jedoch als komplett unbegründet !!! Es lief alles entspannt u easy ab. Wir lernen halt ein bisschen italienisch ..... .
Local attractions Die Stadt Lucca ist sehr zu empfehlen. Vom Bahnhof Diecimo sind schöne Zugfahrten möglich, zu - im Vergleich zu Deutschland - lächerlichen Preisen ! Nach Lucca, Aulla und Viareggio führen teilweise wunderschöne Bahnstrecken. Das Personal war sehr freundlich ! Und : es erspart einem die teilweise abenteuerlichen Fahrmanöver der einheimischen Autofahrer ! ( diese stellen selbst Polen in den Schatten ..... ).
