     Description 


Casa Marta is a 18th-century stone building with three floors
spanning roughly 325 square feet each. It is located in the village
of Pascoso (district of Pescaglia, province of Lucca,Tuscany), in
the Apuane Park, 2321 feet above sea level.
In short, the house is made up of: 1 kitchen/living room + 2
bedrooms + 1 full bathroom + 1 powder room + 2 pantries. The house
does not have a lawn, but there is space just outside the French
doors leading out from the downstairs bedroom for a small table,
sunshade and chairs. There are two entrances, the front door which
takes you into the kitchen/pantry and the back door which leads to
the downstairs bedroom, as the house is nestled on a hill, with
three floors on one side and two on the other.
The house is fully furnished with all new or antique pieces (Tuscan
pieces from the 19th century); we have provided a television
(satellite), radio and CD player. We have not yet installed a
telephone (there is a public phone in town if you don't have a
mobile), but telephone, computer, and internet access are available
at our office (10 meters away). A central heating system (gas) has
also been installed. And, naturally, a working fireplace adorns the
second floor, as how would a mountain house be complete without one!

Additional information: Pascoso is an ideal stay for nature's
lovers. However, it is not far from the "cities of arts" of Tuscany
(Lucca,Pisa,Florence,Siena, etc., and beaches (Forte dei Marmi and
Viareggio,which are among the most famous Italian beaches) are no
more than 30 miles far.Furthermore, the house is situated under an
hours drive from many of Italy’s finest and most picturesque golf
courses, such as Golf Alisea - 32km -30 mins (5 holes promotional
golf course), Montecatini Golf Club - 37 km -35 mins (18 hole golf
course of natural beauty that has been built in the hilly
countryside.Golfers are faced with many natural hazards such as
lakes, streams, forests, and ditches which are all formed from the
natural contours of the land), Club Golf Montelupo - 40 km -40 mins,
Tirrenia Golf Club (9 hole), Cosmopolitan Golf & Country Club (18
hole) and Golf Club Fontevivo (18 hole).
Pascoso's finest asset, and the most important reason to travel
there, is the nature in which it is literally immersed. In many
ways, the surrounding mountains and age-old trees are wild and
untouched, the dense thickets grow untamed and the canyons, crossed
by mule tracks, curl open to reveal sweet pastures where one can lie
down in the soft, mountain sun. Pascoso is a hiker's paradise, from
short strolls in the hillsides with your children or dog, stopping
to taste cool water at a natural spring, to longer hikes, where you
can walk all day long without meeting a soul and sleep overnight in
one of the many shelters that dot the valley. Many of the mule paths
are suitable for mountain bikes and horses, which you can rent in
Pascoso. For some hikes you might want to drive a few short minutes
to your point of departure, whereas for others, you can leave
directly on foot from your front door. And clearly, for visitors
with off-road vehicles, the opportunities are endless.
A section of the Turrite Stream is reserved for fishing. Trout
abound, although, given the low levels of the water, they generally
do not grow to be very large. Further downstream, the Turrite flows
into a large, artificial basin where the fish are less numerous, but
much bigger.
As you may have already imagined, the only sounds you'll hear in
Pascoso are dogs barking and townsfolk chatting. Quiet reigns
through the mountainside. The area is ideal for hiking, horseback
riding (there are two barns where you can rent horses), and biking.
In mid-August, Pascoso organizes a parade dedicated to the Madonna,
in which a statue of the Holy Mother is carried high on a canopy
throughout the town.
