A Perfect Peaceful Retreat High in the Hills

We loved the time we spent at Casa Il Nido. This place was perfect for our stay in Tuscany. The home itself was absolutely charming with every detail looked after. The well-equipped kitchen gave us the opportunity to cook our dinners and enjoy our relaxing evenings looking out over the garden. Casa Il Nido has been carefully restored with modern bathroom conveniences, lovely antiques and stonework. The terraced garden included many little seating areas to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of lavender, grapes, hydrangea, herbs, bees, birds and the beauty of the area. We rented a car to explore the area each day. Our travels included day trips to the walled city of Lucca where we rented bikes for the afternoon, a longer drive to the medieval village of San Gimignano where we rented scooters to drive through the rolling countryside filled with grape vines and olive trees. On our final day, we stayed closer to home visiting the villages of Bagni di Lucca and taking a long walk along the river. Our host, Luca, was so welcoming and friendly. He and his children greeted us on our first day and made sure we had everything we needed...including some local wine! Thank you Luca and Lisa for providing us with such an enjoyable stay at Casa Il Nido.

A taste of "Old Italy" that every tourist craves!

This place has everything a tourist seeking the essence of rural Italy requires. My husband and I, both Americans, decompressed for 4 days in Casa Il Nido after spending a month traveling in Italy. The owners welcomed us with genuine warmth and their love and pride in this property is evident in the careful restoration of the apartments and the grounds. The apartment where we stayed, Casa Il Nido, is the smallest of four apartments of varying sizes on the property. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped with modern kitchen and bathroom fixtures along with stone floors and walls, lace curtains and antiques. The view out our front windows and door looked down on the old village bell tower and out across the neighboring mountains. Another bell tower sits next to the Casa property. The grounds of the group of apartments called, Casa Sotto del Torre or "House Under the Tower", slope downward and the owners have restored the ancient terracing of rock walls creating level after level of sitting areas and walking paths with beautiful plantings, pots of herbs, and vine covered trellises. Here we experienced that delightful feeling of "Old Italy" that every tourist craves. To be be sitting outside in one of the many sitting areas writing or reading was equally as wonderful as being inside the apartment. This would be a perfect place to spend a month or more for a writer, painter, or anyone seeking beauty or a place to think and be creative. Boveglio, the delightful Medieval village where Casa Sotto la Torre is located can be reached by car by carefully driving north for 15 kilometers on the narrow, winding SP 55 from Collodi or south for 10 kilometers on SP 55 from Bagni de Lucca. The Casa is located on SP55 just at the north west entrance to the village of Boveglio. There is bus service to and from but a car is probably necessary. We found two good restaurants and a small but well stocked grocery market in a village called Benabbio, 5 kilometers north of Boveglio. We loved this place and when we come back, we will stay longer.

Beautiful!

What a beautiful place! We stayed for a week in November and could've stayed longer! Our apartment was equipped with everything we needed, and was quiet and peaceful. The little village of Boveglio was very charming. This is a great place to relax in the middle of Tuscany, but not too far from surrounding villages like Lucca. Highly recommended! (car essential)
