Description

Casa Norma sleeps 6 people comfortably. Set over 3 floors the property hosts one master bedroom with kingsize bed, and two twin rooms. There are two bathrooms within the house – one of which includes a roll top bath were you can relax in luxury whilst admiring the spectacular Panio de Corfino Mountain. The second bathroom hosts a modern shower room on the top floor, also offering a view you’d never tire of looking to!

There are a variety of outdoor spaces to enjoy around the property. A magnificent view awaits from the terrace accessible directly from the kitchen, then meander down the stone steps to take a dip in your own private swimming pool. In the evening, have a quiet moment sitting under cover in the barn area as you wait for the pizza oven to heat up.

The electric fanned wood burning stove in the living area allows for cozy nights in, and of course the entire house comes with Central heating to allow for year round usage of this wonderful property.

Our nearest airport is Pisa Galileo, which has daily flights in from London, and many regular flights from most regional UK airports. From the airport, the house is approximately 1hr 15mins by car. Many car hire options are available at Pisa airport. Full directions will be provided upon booking.

Alternatively there is a regular train timetable from Pisa Centrale station to Castelnuovo Di Garfagnana, a relaxing way to view the beautiful scenery on route. From there you can use local taxis (we can give you the telephone number of an English speaking driver) to reach the house.

There is a local mini-market within a 10 minute walk that supplies all your essentials. A lager fully stocked supermarket can be found in Pieve (approx 20mins from the house). There are numerous restaurants with easy driving distance of the house offering superb italian fare at extremely reasonable prices. e.g. Average 2/3 course lunch costs 10-15euro including wine!

The historic village of Castiglione is a six minute drive by car or taxi and has a couple of bars with spectacular views and is the heart of local life in the area.

Additional house amenities include free wifi throughout, bed linen, a children’s cot, washing machine and towels. House cleaning is not included during your stay but can be arranged at local currency. One bag of logs provided out of season and additional logs can be provided upon request.

I spent time with Tracey and John in this incredible part of Tuscany back in 2014. At that point, they were looking at the house and bought in on their return home. Since then they've put love, thought and care into turning the Farmhouse into the charming home it is today. I can personally vouch for the stunning views, breathtaking location and AMAZING restaurants nearby that make you so welcome and spoil you with authentic food and wine. Visiting here is a MUST and Tracey and John will help you every step of the way to plan your trip. Do it!


A touch of heaven in Tuscany...
It has been such a pleasure to have been part of the journey with Tracey and John creating Casa Norma. Since buying the property, we've seen how hard they have both worked in creating a home from home - choosing beautiful furniture, soft furnishing, proper kitchen utensils; to ensure that guests will have the best possible experience. It is no accident that Casa Norma is situated close to fantastic bars and restaurants. Tracey and John know good food and wine and have discovered and sampled local hostelries in the area to ensure that all who visit will be immediately guided to wonderful places that will suit their tastes. We cannot wait to go to Casa Norma in the Spring and know that we are going to have the comforts of home, beautiful views, wonderful walks... all washed down with the best local wine. Well done and good luck to you both - we promise to review again after our Spring visit. Catherine Ann & Gary


What a transformation!
What a wonderful job John and Tracey have done! Beautifully restoring this holiday home to its rustic glory. Knowing J&T as I do, I knew they would do the place justice, and they have absolutely hit the spot. Beautiful location, wonderful views, welcoming locals and amenities and now a homely, relaxing haven to enjoy it all from. What more do any of us need for a relaxing break?

Tracey and John have put in a lot of love, time and effort on restoring this beautiful holiday home in this stunning northwestern region of Tuscany. The house has been created in true Italian rustic country style – the transformation in the last year has been amazing - it looks absolutely fantastic. Their attention to detail has been meticulous – to ensure that everyone will have everything you could possibly need to enjoy a fantastic relaxing holiday. The scenery is truly beautiful and I can understand why they chose this wonderful location, that has a very local friendly feel to it. A fabulous location to enjoy a relaxing well earned holiday and enjoy a few fantastic meals and local vino! We look forward to trying it out for ourselves!  Jools & Dougie

This lovely property has been lovingly restored and combines Italian charm with a clean and classy contemporary feel. Each bedroom is light and airy with top quality beds and bedding. But it is the view from the stunning bathroom that we will never forget. The freestanding bath looks out of the window onto the mountains! The property is spotlessly clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. You could quite happily spend your entire holiday at the villa and its beautiful pool. But we enjoyed trips to Florence and Lucca by train as well as lots of walking in the Garfagnana National Park.

Beautiful area - the house has recently been refurbished to a very high standard, stylishly maintaining a lovely Tuscan feel, very clean and comfortable.The views from the pool are great. Accurate to the listing and good customer service. I would happily recomend this property and area to friends and family. There is an abundance of great reasonably priced traditional Resturants as well as fine dining for a treat. Great area for walks and touring about the breathtaking scenery .
