What a surprise finding a beautiful rental in a historic Tuscan mountain village with easy access to all the activities we were looking for. The panoramic views from this location were totally magical. Coming from Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, we were used to wonderful panoramic views and this did not disappoint in any way. We found our daily drives to the Mediterranean/ Ligurian Sea, to Pisa, Lucca, to Florence and Pistoia all within an easy reach for day trips.
We also took a trip to Abetone which happens to be the premier skiing location in northern Tuscany.
The preparation for our arrival at Casa Nicola was impeccable. Once settled in we felt such peace with the surroundings. The ancient fireplaces and architectural heritage! We will certainly return.
Thank you Nicola !!
We had a really lovely group holiday in Casa Nicola. The house is huge and there were 16 of us, and it's so hard to find a reasonably-priced place in Tuscany that can accommodate so many people, but this house fit the bill perfectly. The house is super-spacious and very homely and comfortable, with an enormous, well-equipped kitchen which is perfect for making big meals together. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and there are plenty of bathrooms. The house is decorated with paintings by the owner, who is a local artist, and we all loved her work.
The house is in a lovely mountain village, and you get to see another side of Tuscany here, but in no time you're in Lucca, Florence, Pisa. We really enjoyed all the good places to eat in nearby Cutigliano and San Marcello.
Everything was perfect for all of us, and we have already decided to organise a return visit!
The house is located a short distance from Lucca, Florence and Pistoia. It is beautifully furnished, the gardens and grounds are breathtaking. Nicola is a very accommodating host. Couldn't ask for a more wonderful house!
