“The holiday of a life time”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I got married at Casale de' Pasquinelli in September and stayed in the property with family and friends for just over a week. It was the best week of our lives and Gabriele could not have done any more to make the whole week and wedding more perfect. He was on site every day making sure that we and all the guests had everything we needed. The property is incredible and the grounds were in perfect condition. Everyone who stayed there with us wants to go back for another holiday. The location is perfect for exploring Tuscany but far enough away from the hussle and bustle that you can have a really peaceful and relaxing stay. Gabriele pretty much organised the wedding for us too, he is organised, kept us up to date and asked all the right questions. My husband and I feel we have made a good friend. We cannot wait to go back!

“Truly memorable”

We stayed as a group of 33 at the Casale. It was to be our holiday and our wedding! From the start Gabriele was very helpful and advised us of all the legalities of getting married in Italy. He was able to reassure us on several occasions, provide advice where needed and offer alternatives with regard to the planning of the wedding day. We visited the Casale in March to assess the property and meet Gabriele in person, once we saw the place we knew we had made an excellent choice. The pictures on the website only go so far, reality is even better.
The Casale has been renovated retaining a Tuscan feel; it’s clean and spacious with lots of space (even with 33 of us!). There are five houses in total which can be rented individually or as a whole. We took all 5 houses across 9 families. Every house is lovely looking with magnificent views. Our party were all impressed when they arrived. The two pools entertained both the young and old and the few teenagers enjoyed the Jacuzzi at night.
We made use of the outside kitchen and terrace area and enjoyed many evenings looking down over Lucca.
There are supermarkets nearby and some good restaurants. Lucca is 20 minutes by car. Gabriele can hire cabs but a car would be advisable.
We arranged for a pizza night on our arrival day which was prepared, cooked and served by Gabriele and his team on the terrace. This was a great evening and aloud for our party to meet and greet each other. The pizza went down well with all, especially dessert pizza which the younger ones enjoyed! What was even better was that on waking in the morning, it had all been cleared away!
Our wedding ceremony was to be in Lucca Town Hall on the Thursday and the reception back at the Casale. Gabriele was busy behind the scenes arranging the paperwork, organising the caterers, liaising with the photographer and much more. The ceremony went ahead without a hitch and we arrived back at the Casale for welcome drinks. The reception was to be held in the wedding garden with two long tables to accommodate 44 people. On seeing this set up I had a tear or two! Beautifully laid out tables were decorated with flowers, candles, lace and vases. Twinkling lights hung from above. It was all I imagined and more.
The food was exceptional! The caterers were aware of two members of our party having a nut allergy, so the menu was adjusted accordingly.
We hired a speaker system for our iphones/ipods to play our music and danced the night away until the early hours on the terrace. All our guests commented on how lovely the setting was and how much they enjoyed the day.
Gabriele was more than helpful. He listened to what we wanted and made it happen. He was a pivotal process in organising our wedding, one of which we could not do without.
We sadly left the Casale early on Saturday morning. We have very happy memories of our holiday and our wedding day, of which will never be forgotten. One day we will return.
