This large traditional style house has been renovated in character style, with beamed ceilings, chestnut windows & internal shutters, wood flooring and fireplaces throughout.

Externally, the house is finished with local stone, and lintels.


The house is split into four apartments, over 2 floors, and the ground floor apartments interconnect with each other as do those on the first floor.

Ideal then for a large group who wish to be together but also like the privacy of separate kitchens and living areas for those private times of days.

The property is light and airy with lots of windows, and all windows have views over the garden, the pool and the hills beyond.


There is a large private pool in the spacious garden and the back entrance of the garden leads down to a gate where one can take the footpath down to the river at a point where it is possible to swim - great fun!


There is a good sized covered terrace for al fresco dining on the side of the house, along with a further al fresco uncovered dining area overlooking the pool area.


For ease of understanding layout we have called each part of the house a different name.


Ground floor- Giardino and Romantico Sleeping 6 


  • Three  bedroom apartment (or you can split into one 2 bed and one  1 bed apartment if you prefer)  
  • Enter via arched doorway into hallway which is open plan to a living/diner leading to kitchen area.
  • Living area has fireplace, TV, DVD, WIFI, Sofa, and double doors leading to garden area.
  • Dining area has dining for up to 8 and leads directly to kitchen which is furnished with oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer.
  • The living area is connected to a second living/kitchen/dining area, also independently equipped. 
  • Ground floor bedrooms:
  • Two double bedrooms, one of which leads out to personal patio to side of house giving a perfect space to breakfast away from the group, or for early birds to sit and read without disturbing anyone else.
  • One twin bedroom 
  • Two Shower rooms.


Outside there is a personal dining area for eating al fresco and a BBQ.



First floor - Terrazzo and Laurel  - 4 bedroom apartment sleeping 8 (or can be split into 2 x 2 bed apartments if you prefer)


This a first floor apartment, but since the property is built into a slope it feels as though it is on ground level when entering/exiting.


  • Enter into hallway leading to open plan living/kitchen diner.
  • 2 Living areas each with fireplace, TV, DVD, WIFI, Sofa, and windows overlooking garden.
  • 2 Dining areas has dining for up to 6 each, and the kitchen areas are furnished with oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer.
  • Two double bedrooms
  • Two twin bedrooms
  • Two shower rooms


Outside there is a large personal covered terrace for eating and relaxing al fresco and a BBQ, and a further smaller terrace too.



Spacious garden with steps down to large swimming pool 12M x 6M .

The villa and the pool overlook open countryside, and other villages, with the mountains beyond.

It is possible to walk down to the river to a point where one can swim which is great fun for all ages - 5 mins.

Each apartment has its own eating area

There is a large covered terrace for group al fresco dining  and relaxing along with a further area for dining overlooking the pool .


A good choice for large groups, especially those who would like a bit of privacy from each other but still holiday together.

A very flexible house which can be arranged as one 4 bedroom and one 3 bedroom apartment, or if you prefer 4 separate apartments - ideal for couples or families needing to accommodate a few generations together.

A little about the area:

Casolare al Poggio is situated just 1 km from the  village  of Filicaia which has a bar withi walking distance.

This beautiful unspoilt and mountainous region can be found just 1 hour north of Lucca, and 90 minutes from Pisa.

Hundreds of hilltop villages abound, one can walk down to the river to swim in around 5 minutes, and the closest station is at Poggio less than 5 minutes in the car for easy exploring.

Also close to the property (3km) is the village of Camporgiano which has restaurants, bars, small supermarkets and privately owned castle. 

Just across the valley is the stunningly located fortress of Verrucole and also the zip wire park which is great fun for both children and adults, and ideal for a day in the welcome shade! You can also picnic and BBQ here if you want to make a day of it.

The local attractive market town of Castelnuovo, famous for its Thursday morning markets, and with all facilities is just a 10 minute drive.  This town has bars, restaurants, gelaterias, and a river...In high season the town really comes alive, and often hosts outdoor evening entertainment.

The beautiful mediaeval town of Barga with its cobbled streets, renowned restaurants, Cathedral  and stunning views is a 40 minute drive, and often there is free live music here.
Lucca, with its fully intact walls can't be missed for a day out and cycling around the walls is a firm favourite with day trippers and locals alike. Here, spend the day meandering in the shady streets, sitting in the open piazzas, dining al fresco, climbing towers, visiting the Opera (this is the birthplace of Puccini) or just shopping!

The Grotta del Vento, the famous Wind Caves is also a family favourite...

There is lots to do if you wish, but the real beauty of the area is the countryside and the scattering of small villages wherever you go....
