Farmhouse in Tuscany, Italy

Property Details of Tuscany Farmhouse

Casa O is a 19th-century, fully restored, independent stone building with three floors (100 square metres approximately)and garden suitable for 4+2 people. In short, the house is made up of: 1 large kitchen with fireplace, 1 living room (with a double sofa bed), 2 bedrooms (1 queen-bed room and 1 twin-bed room), 1 bathroom (shower), and 1 laundry (pantry) room. The front door takes you into the hall, where there are the kitchen (on the left side), the living room (on the right) and the stairs, which leads to the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom. The house is nestled on a hill, with three floors on one side and two on the other; therefore at the ground floor there is another room (with independent entrance) which is used for a laundry. From the patio,you can go to the private garden (approximately 100 square metres), where there are a table, chairs, sun-umbrella, and BBQ. The house is fully furnished with all new or antique pieces (Tuscan pieces from the 18th and 19th centuries). We have provided a television (satellite), DVD, radio and CD player. We have not yet installed a telephone (there is a public phone in town if you don't have a mobile), but telephone, computer, and internet access are available at our office (not more than 50 metres away). A central heating system (oil-fired) has also been installed. And, naturally, a working fireplace adorns the kitchen, as how would a mountain house be complete without one! Another house of the same owner (Casa Marta, see this listing) suitable for 6 persons is available roughly 50 meters far from Casa O.

Local Area Details

The house is nestled in a small mountain town called Pascoso, in the Apuane Park, 2,231 feet above sea level. Pascoso, in the Tuscan province of Lucca, has just under 100 inhabitants and is so small, with such narrow stone roads, that cars enter town along a short strip of the main road only. Nearly all the houses in town are built in stone, including their rooftops, and the smooth stones of the streets were laid hundreds of years ago. Pascoso is a hikers's paradise; however, it is not far from the 'cities of arts' of Tuscany: Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Siena are 15, 30, 60, and 95 miles far; moreover, Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, among the most famous Italian beaches, are 30 miles far, including 15 on the highway.Furthermore, the house is situated under an hour drive from many of Italy’s finest and most picturesque golf courses, such as Golf Alisea - 32km -30 mins (5 holes promotional golf course), Montecatini Golf Club - 37 km -35 mins (18 hole golf course of natural beauty that has been built in the hilly countryside.Golfers are faced with many natural hazards such as lakes, streams, forests, and ditches which are all formed from the natural contours of the land), Club Golf Montelupo - 40 km -40 mins, Tirrenia Golf Club (9 hole), Cosmopolitan Golf & Country Club (18 hole) and Golf Club Fontevivo (18 hole),and others.
Traffic is almost unheard in Pascoso. There are no attractions of mass tourism. However, you will find all the essential services provided by the town's store, which is run by a local family and sells everything to meet your daily needs, from fruits and vegetables, meat and bread to laundry detergent.
Next door to the store, the family runs an old style trattoria welcoming in its genuine Tuscan hospitality, you'll feel like a guest in their home. The decor, complete with wooden benches, checkered tablecloths, and flasks of Tuscan wine on each table, adds to its charm. The dishes served are exclusively those typical of the region-wild game, delicious homemade pasta, Tuscan wines and cheeses and last, but certainly not least, homemade cakes and pies.
By car, you can also reach more refined, fine dining restaurants in the surrounding area. There is a post office open all year round and, just a few kilometers from Pascoso, there are towns with more stores.
For reaching Pascoso, you must before arrive to Lucca. If you arrive from North Italy (Milan) or from South Italy (Rome) you reach Florence (direction South and North, respectively) and then (at Florence North) you take ( without leaving the motorway from Milan to Rome) the MOTORWAY to PISA NORTH (in Italian language : Pisa Nord). After approximately 50 kilometres (35-40 miles) you reach LUCCA, and you go out of the motorway (either exit Lucca west [LUCCA OVEST] or Lucca East [LUCCA EST] are OK). At Lucca you must take the state road 12 (SS 12) directions ABETONE/GARFAGNANA (there are several road signs, also at the exits of motorway). You reach PONTE A MORIANO (5-6 Km from Lucca) and you turn left always following the direction Abetone/Garfagnana. You find four (4) tunnels, and approximately 1 miles after the fourth tunnel, you must turn right (direction BORGO A MOZZANO). After approximately 2 miles, we will reach DIECIMO (5 minutes of driving), and 200 meters after the road signal "Diecimo" (placed on the right hand of the road) you find before a Tamoil gasoline pump (on the left side of the road) and then, after another 100 meters, you must turn left (direction on the road signal: "PESCAGLIA"). There is only one asphalt road: you reach before Pescaglia (8-10 km from Diecimo) and then Pascoso (6-7 km from Pescaglia). ESTIMATED TIME FOR REACHING PASCOSO FROM LUCCA : 45-60 minutes.
