“Beautiful and tranquil”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The photographs for Case Eli do not do it the justice it deserves. It is true to say that the entrance at the top of the lane is very tight, but with a competent driver this isn't a problem. The house itself is very spacious and airy. The weather during our stay was not brilliant and unfortunately we only got to use the pool a couple of times. We have never had such a big pool in a private accommodation. The garden is immense, more like a field, with plenty of wildlife around. Deers playing in the mornings, bats and owls around at night. A 20 minute scenic walk through the woods brings you to the village. A brilliant base for catching the train from Castelnuevo or enjoying the house itself. If straying in Pieve Fosciana a visit to the restaurant il posso is a must, try the degustation menu at 30E a head may seem quite expensive, but you get to sample a wide variety of speciality dishes. Both the house and the restaurant are well worth the money.

“Surround yourself in beautiful Tuscany”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This secluded 3 bedroom villa was ample for 4 adults and a baby (<1 year). The property was clean, well supplied and the owner/ manager was only a call away if we needed anything.

The property is set in beautiful countryside and we really felt that we were on holiday. Its a short 10 minute walk into town that involves crossing the river in a few places. We did this walk daily and really enjoyed it. Pieve Fosciana has everything you need for your stay and larger towns such as Castelnuovo and Lucca are not far away.

As we had very unseasonably warm weather (30+) for the week, the pool was great and we used it daily.
Getting the property was fine, except for the very last bit, when you leave the main road. The narrow lanes of Tuscany can be challenging, but worth it. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and have a wonderful stay.
