Our home

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!
The original tiled floors and wooden beamed ceilings offer a truly authentic farmhouse experience. The modern kitchen provides all the necessary equipment to create local dishes for all to enjoy, whilst the extremely characteristic outdoor oven provides a fun way to make your own pizza for a true Italian experience!
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. Prices upon application.

Who we are

  1. Hi there, we are a professional couple with no kids who love to travel! We have a beautiful holiday home in Northern Tuscany that offers tranquility, spectacular views, fabulous restaurants and your own outdoor pizza oven. The view from the pool is exceptional and the sound of the mountain goats nearby and birds singing has to behold. We also offer a shopping service, home cooked meals to order and house cleaning during your stay all at a small charge. Pool cleaning is done as standard so you don't need to worry about that. We only ask that you water the plants and flowers during your visit.

  2. John is an artist and graphic designer and I am a freelance Events consultant. We live in Teddington London, but I am originally from Edinburgh, Scotland and John hails from Manchester, England.

  3. We love art, good food, fine wine, live music, fresh air, beaches, tennis, city vibes, cycling and a whole lot more!
