Garden and Pool
Casa Glyn has been restored to a very high standard whilst maintaining its rustic style and original features using local materials. This characterful Tuscan farmhouse has a wonderful south-facing terrace complete with working antique pizza oven, where one can relax under the pergola with a glass of wine as the sun sets over the verdant forested Lunigiana hills. Casa Glyn is set in several acres of terraced garden with olive trees and vines. The private salt water pool and deck area command an outstanding, uninterrupted view across the valley and provide a fantastic sunbathing location, all day long. A private drive leads up to the parking area below the house, screened and shaded by olive trees. Days may be spent here relaxing with a book by the pool or on the terrace and evenings dining al fresco are bliss!
With its fabulous kitchen, large dining room, sitting room with fireplace and open beams and its tasteful bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms, Casa Glyn is a luxurious and extremely comfortable holiday home. The house is tiled throughout, providing a cool retreat from the Tuscan sun, whilst the owner’s interest in Moroccan and East African furnishings complements the traditional decoration and lends warmth and originality to an already characterful house. Superb for families with plenty of space as well as being a romantic and unforgettable honeymoon location.

How can we describe our summer at Casa Glyn? It’s been one of the most special times of our lives. Highly unproductive, totally whimsical & utterly magical. The result..two incredibly happy, rejuvenated & relaxed people who have fallen head over heels in love with Italy. The only downside is – a) We feel like Casa Glyn is our own beautiful home and b) the dog has been ruined & will be distraught senza piscina. Personally, thank you for your warmth, your humour, your generosity & most importantly your friendship. We will never forget you, MoJo or Casa Glyn & this very special summer.
Hopefully we’ll be back very soon.
