“A classic Italian casale and the perfect wedding week!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Where to begin our review, as this was truly the trip of a lifetime! When my fiancé proposed, we decided we’d like our wedding to be a bit of an adventure! We wanted to find a villa large enough to hold 30 of our closest friends and family, and in a location where the group could spend a few nights exploring the area leading up to our wedding!

That is exactly what we found with Casale de’ Pasquinelli! We first reached out to Gabriele with a request for more information because of the location (Tuscany, about 20 minutes outside of Lucca), the size of the villa, and because of the excellent reviews he had already received. The reviews were particularly important to us because we were planning this while living in the United States!

Beginning with the first email, Gabriele was excellent. He answered all of our questions, explained prices, gave recommendations, etc., and everything was spot-on. In terms of the actual wedding day, Gabriele had excellent recommendations for everything from the flowers to hair & makeup, to the catering, and it was more than we could have ever dreamed of! The food was perfect, the flowers were beautiful—everything was stunning. We wanted a Catholic ceremony, too, and while people who are not residents of Lucca cannot get married in the church in Lucca, Gabriele found a Catholic church and priest willing to marry us just a few towns away and 100% coordinated all of the paperwork, etc., as well as transportation to/from the church for guests the day of the wedding! He even went with us to meet the priest a few days before the wedding!

Gabriele coordinated our rehearsal dinner, transportation for the activities we had planned, and was at the casale each day making sure that we had everything we needed. We enjoyed breakfast each morning in the gazebo, and had 2 dinners at the casale—the pizza dinner (highly recommended!), and a dinner on our last night. Everything was delicious!

I cannot say enough great things about Gabriele and the casale. The wedding was everything we had dreamed of, and the 5 nights we spent at the casale with our closest friends and family was the best vacation we’ve had! We would highly recommend a stay at the Casale—whether it’s for a family vacation, a large family get together, a wedding, or just friends travelling on holiday!

“Fantastico!”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I am not usually one to write reviews but I felt I had to write one for Casale de Pasquinelli as we had such a fantastic stay. I got married there in August 2015 and rented out all of the houses for our family and friends to stay for a week. The owner Gabriele helped us with all of the preparations prior to the wedding, helping us with décor, food, entertainment and anything else that popped up along the way. During our stay Gabriele was fantastic, he did a fantastic job of co-ordinating the wedding and was always at hand to help us with anything we required, during the rest of our stay. Nothing was too much, and we knew that we could put our trust in him.

Tha Casale is set in the most beautiful surroundings up in the Tuscan hills, the gardens are very well kept and the views are spectacular. The houses have a lovely rustic charm and are clean and have all of the amenities that one would require. Our guests who stayed with us had an amazing stay and upon seeing the Casale the other guests at our wedding wished that they were staying with us too!

Thank you so much Gabriele!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We rented the villa for our wedding, bringing a large group of family and friends with us! We had the most amazing week, as did our guests. The villa is in a great location with stunning views and the accommodation was fantastic. Gabriele, the owner was brilliant! He was always on hand to help and offer advice on the area. The pizza night was brilliant and excellent value as were the breakfasts. Our wedding day was the most fantastic day, it was everything we had hoped for and more, we cannot begin to explain how grateful we are to Gabriele and his team for all their hard work in the organisation and planning, he made everything so much easier and stress free for us. We cannot recommend Casale de Pasquinelli highly enough, we can guarantee you will not be disappointed if you chose this as a holiday location or a wedding venue.

“A great combination of properties for a large group”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were a group of 20 adults and children from the UK and we hired all 5 houses for 8 nights for a joint family holiday. We could have accommodated an additional 15 people in the houses quite easily.

The description and pictures of the Casale are accurate, and probably do not really do it justice. It is in a great location, an easy drive from Lucca, and the views are stunning and it is so quiet.

The owner Gabriele is a delight and he is hands on and very helpful. We had a lot of e-mail communication before we arrived, and he was very clear regarding what was to be provided. He organised our group transport from and to Pisa Airport, and also food shopping to our exact requirements to be waiting for us when we arrived. He also printed our Daily Telegraph crossword for us every day !

He also responded very positively to any suggestions we made.

We took advantage of his service of a Pizza Party on the first and last nights and an organised group breakfast for 4 mornings. All of these were excellent. We also used the Pizza Oven ourselves on one night.

The Casale is fantastic, and it is quite hard to find anything to compare it with as it has the rare benefit of 5 substantial and discrete houses, allowing a group to also have the benefit of individual privacy.

The only two things to be sure you are OK with, (which are both clear from the description) are that at least one member of your party should have a car, and the site is quite steep in parts, with many steps.
