Casa Pietra - 2 bedroom and 1 bath - Sleeps 5
Casa Pietra is the perfect mix of old and modern. Its majestic vaulted stone that decorates the kitchen fits in perfectly with the room of the sauna and the hot tub, with their stone walls and the ceilings with chestnut beams and ancient bricks. The two comfortable bedrooms and a large bathroom with a large shower, harmonize throughout the house, which opens and you find out who has the good fortune to stay there.
2 - 4 nights
We loved Casa Pietra and the village
We spent a week in Casa Pietra in July 2015 and loved the villa and the little village (Boveglio) it's in. Thoroughly charming and relaxing. The lavender infused air and the views were lovely. The drive to Florence, Pisa, and Lucca were all straightforward. Trattorias in the neighboring villages offered delicious fare. Italy was insanely hot, but Boveglio was heavenly.
The property was clean and well-maintained, and Luca was a good property manager/owner.

Italy was hot....I mean HOT. 38-39C in the shade and whilst its a bit of a drive up the hilly road to Casa Pietra the cooler temperatures and breeze makes it well worth the effort. The house has been really beautifully restored, and fitted out very well. The partly rendered white walls and exposed stone give it a lot of character, and we found the house spotlessly clean. We never really thought we would use the hot tub in the middle of summer, but on a low setting it was really nice to cool off after a long hot day sightseeing.
Lisa & Luca were easily contactable by email, and whilst we didn't speak Italian, they were able to google translate our messages and helped recover a lost handbag at the local police station. When we did have a minor problem with hot water Luca came out on a Sunday to fix it which was beyond the call of duty.
I would recommend Casa Pietra to anyone wanting a tranquil place to stay with beautiful views over the tree covered hills. Favourite places Lucca inside the historic walls, and Barga. We will have fond memories of our stay.

Casa Pietra was a wonderful relaxing retreat to start our holidays in Italy. We stayed here with our 6 month old son for a week. It was a week filled with a perfect mix of quiet days, exploring Boveglio and the surrounding villages, and sight seeing - days trips to Florence, Cinque Terre and San Gimignano. The apartment was very clean, well equipped with all we needed, complete with a play pen and high chair for the baby, and the sauna and jacuzzi were a perfect way to unwind at the end of the day. There are supermarkets close by in Collodi or Bagni di Lucca and the bread van comes every day with delicious bread. The views are beautiful and the town and the grounds around are great to wander. Lisa and Luca were great to deal with, answering all our questions and making sure we had everything we needed. All and all, a great stay and we hope to be back again one day!
