Lovely place to stay. The house is comfortable and all the rooms being en suite is a great bonus. Eating outside in the evening was such a fantastic experience thanks to the wonderful view. Great trattoria in Vellano for evening meals too.
Fabulous, location amazing villa and a tremendous weekend
Fabulous villa - pefect family location
We hired both vilas and were not disappointed. We ate outside most days and sat viewing the Tuscan landscape. The two infinity pools were in constant use. Thanks to Maurizio's recommendations we managed to explore much of the local area. Highly recommend Lucca and Florence.
We were met by Marilena who helped make our stay go smoothly.
We loved our first family holiday to Italy and much of that enjoyment stemmed from the excellent villa's we used as our base
Great stay in a beutiful scenery
The place is most wondeful.
Pictures in do not make justice to the beauty of it! Scenery is breathtaking!
We spent most of our holiday swimming in the mornings and visiting several surrounding towns in the afternoons and evenings. Great location and car is a must.
Garden with full of fruit trees was something we didn't expect but greeted with joy.
We are delighted that you all had a lovely stay. Your comments are most important to us. It's true the pictures do not make justice as the villa and surrounding are stunning.
Which we will make note to improve. I hope you will all come back one day and enjoy casa di nonnas again.
Thank you from my self and Marilena and the team would like to say ciao e grazie
A fantastic Casa in the peace of the Italian hills.
A fantastic gem of a casa in a wonderful setting.
We really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful casa. It is well equipped and very clean with plenty of space for a large family or even two family groups. We are a family of five, but all adults, so we appreciated the four double bedrooms. The bedrooms are all comfortable and having en-suite facilities in all four, and a family bedroom, is a great bonus. Although it was extremely hot whilst we were there, the casa, probably because it is old with thick walls, retained a cool interior if we kept the shutters partially closed. The main casa is an old building and there are many quirky features but this adds to the appeal.
The outside table and gazebo were ideal for alfresco eating and the barbecue was good. We ate all our meals outside.
The pools are fantastic! To have one infinity pool would be great, but two, and in such a wonderful setting, was just superb.
The drive up from Pescia was winding with an awkward turn into the villa (which is easily overcome by following the instructions provided) and the road is obviously a well used and popular cycle route, but it is worth the drive to experience the wonderful views.
I would recommend this casa to anyone wanting peace and quiet in the Italian hills and it is our hope to go back again some day.
Excellent location and villa!
We stayed here as 2 families and rented both villas. The location is stunning and the views are unbeatable. The villas are lovely too and extremely well equipped. The pools are just fantastic - we all loved them and the water temperature was perfect. There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas too. Location wise, the pretty village of Vellano is 5 minutes away by car and Pescia is 15 minutes away by car. During our holiday we visited Florence, Montecatini, Collodi plus many others. If you want a chilled holiday in beautiful surroundings this is the place. The villas are up on a hillside away from any tourists which is lovely. I would also like to say how helpful Maurizio (owner) and Marilena have been. It truly was the best holiday we have had and we will definitely return. I can't recommend this place enough. It's fantastico :)
