Casa Verde with its fantastic view of Vellano sleeps six people with all modern amenities while keeping its rustic charm. Casa Verde is an hour from Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the coast at Viareggio with the mountains of the Garfagnana to the west.

The view from Casa Verde of the Medieval village of Vellano is unique to the accommodation and even after all these years I wonder at it every day.

About the neighbourhood
Our village is a fantastic medieval hamlet with two restaurants, cafe bar and small shop. Casa Verde is within an hour of Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the beach at Viareggio; as well as the mountains of the Garfagnana to the west. The views from Casa Verde and the hillside are overwhelming at all times of the year. The icing on the cake is when the bells of the church ring at Midday and Sundays along with feast days. They just seems to make things complete.Guests should note that Casa Verde is 11 km from Pescia the nearest town up a rural road with many twists and turns. Casa Verde's drive has a one sharp turn on it.
Getting around
The best way to see most things from Casa Verde is by train from Pescia. (20 Mins by car to the Station) The train takes you to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, the coast/beach and other cities in our region. If you are considering your carbon footprint we can always collect you from Pescia Railway station, however a car is essential if you plan to make lots of visits to the regions attractions of which there are many.
