“Tuscan gem”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The whole experience was memorable. The arrival through the winding mountain road, the views of the village up above really gives you a sense of escaping the busy modern world down below for a mountain getaway. Literally built into the side of the steep slopes of Mount Nero this medieval village takes you back into slow living. The house looks like a Tuscany post card and when you look through the windows the spectacular valley peppered with red roof hamlets just takes your breath away. Surprisingly, the inside of the house looks very traditional test freshly renovated and made me think of a chic Old English country house which made sense once I was told it was renovated by a previous owner, a wealthy Englishman, who used the house for several years as a holiday house. I loved the pool with mountain views, the walks to the mountains, the small villages and the wonderful peace and quite lifestyle. Good internet for those can't let go and 1 h drive to Lucca city. A local lady took us to a great zip lining adventure in the beautiful canyon just 5 km down from the house. Really worth it.

Casa Zola in Vico Pancellorum, a medieval village nestled in the Tuscan mountains just above Bagni Di Lucca, is magnificent and well worth the trip. We spent a magical week in the sun, by the pool, climbing the mountains, zip lining in the canyon, exploring the neighbouring villages and taking in the breathtaking vista. The house is really well equipped and super comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need (just bring wine) and the bathroom is gorgeous. We had an amazing trip and would come back in a heartbeat!

“Stunning views in a little piece of Tuscan heaven!”
Reviewed 3 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Loved it! 100% recommend staying here. This Tuscan villa is fabulous with every convenience for a five star stay. Special touches everywhere - even has bathrobes and slippers. Stunning views of the picturesque valley from every window.
The owners of this beautiful villa were so helpful before booking and during our stay. Providing directions right from our arrival at the airport, suggested day trips and travelling tips - nothing was too much to ask. The village has an amazing restaurant 2 minutes walk with fabulous home cooked meals (bookings essential in summer) -crazy if you miss dinning there during your stay at Casa Zola.
This won't be our last trip here...

Kate - lovely to know you had the best experience of Tuscany. Up high in the mountains is certainly a unique perspective of an Italian holiday. Do hope you got to go skiing. Look forward to your next trip - and thanks for the kind words. John

“Beautiful villa with stunning views!”

This villa is fantastic. Plenty of room, modern kitchen, stunning views in a lovely quiet area. The facilities are 5 star including bathrobes & slippers - nice touch! The villa has everything to make your stay very comfortable.

The fireplace was lovely and a short walk to the local restaurant which serves the best pasta I've ever eaten. A beautiful place to visit in winter and I'll be back to experience it in summer! The local people are very friendly and welcoming.

Highly recommend Casa Zola - I will be back!

Sharyn...delighted you had the opportunity to have the 'Casa Zola Experience'. Like many before you, the entire experience is very special - and we are very lucky to have such a lovely place in a wonderfully inclusive village community. I do hope you find the time to return for the 'summer' experience - which is even more amazing (if you can believe it?!). Thanks for your kind, honest reflection. Best wishes. John :)

My husband, myself and our three young children stayed in Casa Zola for a week in July. We were looking for somewhere to park ourselves for a week away from the crowds, and this villa fit the bill perfectly! We spent most mornings doing short day trips to the surrounding area, then headed back to the villa to relax by the pool. Every other evening, we ate at the local restaurant in the village...what a treat! Fantastic quality, service and value. The nights we did decide to cook were enjoyable too. The kitchen is equipped better than my own home, a rare find for a vacation rental. And eating our dinner on the terrace while enjoying the beautiful view was memorable. The best thing about this villa was the hospitality we enjoyed from the Byrne family. They really made us feel like family or close friends as opposed to anonymous renters. It was clear that they take a lot of pride in their holiday home and that they wanted us to enjoy ourselves to the fullest. And we did! Thank you Byrne family!

Hi Julia. Thanks for such a lovely message. Cath was so happy to be able to meet you whilst in Vico...and was delighted that you were enjoying yourselves so much. We are very lucky to have such a fabulous holiday home. The village(ers) is lovely and the restaurant an absolute gem. Luck you for going every other evening. Great crew, aren't they? Not to mention the food and the prosecco on-tap! We have just returned from Canada for the first time and found your home country to be extraordinary! Glad we both had summers to remember with great fondness. You are welcome at Casa Zola any time. Best wishes. John, Jane & Cath
