About Wim Vergeylen
We are a Belgian family of 5, living in the flemish part of Belgium, near the historical city of Ghent. We bought the house in 2013. The former owner still acts as our local property manager and will welcome you wholeheartedly. We also have our own regular vacation stays at our property with family and friends throughout the year.

Why Wim Vergeylen chose Lucca
Lucca is a very nice, fully walled, historical city. The Lucca area is ideally located, close to airports and close to beaches, other historical cities (Pisa, Pistoia, Firenze,..), impressive mountains (Apuan Alps), wineries and all those other nice things Tuscany has to offer.
What makes this House unique
Casa Nuova is an authentic Tuscan farmhouse with adjacent guesthouse, both restored with good taste by the previous owner. The property comprises a large pool and garden with fruit trees, vines, lawns and woodland. This property is unique because of it's breathtaking views, it's peaceful surroundings, large pool and garden and above all, the ideal location.

Superb Stay at Casa Nuova
We have had a superb stay at Casa Nuova. Splendid location on a steep hill with awesome views over the surrounding forests and far-distant mountains. Also ideally located for visiting near–by villages like Lucca and Pisa.
We rented the house together with friends and we all had big fun. While the parents enjoyed the great cooking facilities (including a wood-heated pizza oven!), the children had great fun in the beautiful swimming pool and gardens surrounding the house. The house is also very well taken care of: nice team of local people took well care of the garden, swimming pool and the cleaning of the house, and the concierge Claire was at any time reachable for all good advice.
Surely a place that we will consider for a next holiday!
En sand perle.
Vi har haft en fantastisk uge med børn, svigerbørn og børnebørn.
Casa Nuova er en dejlig autentisk hus, som ligger i den mest pragtfulde område oppe i bjergene.
Børnene boltrede sig fra morgen til aften i den skønne pool.
Lokale “kokke” fremtryllede et lækkert aftensmåltid til os, de serverede og efterlod køkkenet rengjort.
Samarbejdet med udlejer har fungeret 100% og Vi giver gerne vores varmeste anbefalinger til fremtidige lejeretak for denne gang.
Place to be and stay
We were lucky to have owner Wim around during our stay. He is without any doubt the perfect host. He made us feel welcome and comfortable from the very first minute. He gave us loads of tips and good company making our stay an unforgetable expericence.
The property itself is stunning. The clean house offers all modern comfort in a well preserved and perfectly maintained traditional interior. What kills it however are the breathtaking views you get from the windows, terraces and garden. From East to West, North to South, you get the most beautiful variaty of landscapes, woods, olive gardens, mountain views, the Lucca valley.. Words are not enough to describe all this beauty, you will have to travel there and see Casa Nuova with your own eyes.
Een oase van rust
Reeds vanaf het begin van de klim naar ‘casa nuova’ kan je genieten van heel wat natuurschoon, afgewisseld met beelden van schattige Toscaanse dorpjes onder hun eigen, specifieke kerktoren. Eens boven, val je van de ene verbazing in de andere. Wat een omgeving, wat een tuin en wat een aardig huis! Casa Nuova is van alle comfort voorzien, biedt ruimte en privacy maar vooral : Dit huis heeft zijn authenticiteit bewaard! Het is er aangenaam vertoeven.
In de enorme tuin vind je heel wat afwisseling. Je hebt er een groot zwembad voor ontspanning en afkoeling. Verder vindt iedereen wel zijn eigen plekje om tot rust te komen of te genieten van een goed boek of lekkere wijn… . Om het even waar je vertoeft, je raakt in de ban van fantastische vergezichten! Natuur- en wandelliefhebbers komen hier niets tekort en ook de fietsfanaten blijven hier niet op hun honger zitten! Cultuur en gastronomie zijn nooit ver weg, maar ook een ‘gewone’ pizza smaakt er heerlijk… En of we genoten hebben!!!

Review of Casa Nuova
The house and annexe were very pleasant. We found the villa difficult to find in spite of the directions and the road was uneven and bumpy with some very sharp turns.
We have stayed at Casa Nuova for 3 weeks and have loved every minute of it. Very nice and clean home, amazing surroundings and lovely swimming pool. There's loads of room for the kids to run around and play ball, the patio near the pool is perfect for dining (whereby we were fortunate enough to see some deers whilst having dinner). Would loved to have stayed longer.
The house is ideally located nearby Lucca, Pisa and the coast, with lots of small wonderful towns nearby to explore. Also Florence and Cinque Terre are within visiting distance from the house. It is everything that Tuscany has to offer.
Wim and his staff are very friendly, incredibly responsive and accommodating. Wonderful!
Casa Nuova is a beautiful farmhouse and converted barn with private pool, situated on the outskirts of the small village of Gugliano, at the top of a hill, 10 kilometres north and west of Lucca. There is no bar in the village but there are a number of bars, restaurants and shops in Ponte a Moriano, a 10 minute drive away. Five minutes from the house there is Villa Volpi, a hotel with an excellent restaurant. Casa Nuova is 20 minutes from Lucca, 50 from Pisa airport, 75 from Florence, 40 from the Versilia coast and 60 from the ski-resort Abetone.
The scenery is spectacular, as is the peace at the house. All our guests enjoy the meals that Grazia, the cook, will come and prepare, if they wish, aiding complete relaxation while on holiday. She can also do pizza evenings, using the oven at the house.
From Casa Nuova, with less than an hour's drive, it is possible to experience all that anyone could wish for in a holiday:
In the mountains - skiing, canyoning, walking, caving;
At the beach - sailing, windsurfing, swimming;
In the towns - shopping, historical churches, art and monuments. Florence is only 1 hour from Lucca;
We can also arrange wine tasting - A landscape of wine and olives. A visit to wine producers in one of the two wine producing areas : DOC Montecarlo or DOC Colline Lucchesi where our guests enjoy locally produced salumi and other typical products as well as a comparative tasting of both red and white wines. Or there is the possibility for A Taste of Lucca. A 'food and wine lovers' walking tour of the town, introducing not only the historic centre within the city walls but also the traditional ingredients and specialities of the area and the individual specialist food and wine shops that still flourish in the town. If our guests wish, we can also organise a more in-depth wine tasting with a local Italian sommelier.
