Settimo Cielo is the highest property of the medieval village of Casoli, around 20 minutes drive from the famous spa town of Bagni di Lucca, and 40 minutes away from the beautiful city of Lucca. All the cottages are furnished with antiques and objets d'art, and feature every modern convenience. There's a 17-metre salt-water horizon pool on one of the terraces, surrounded by an olive grove and imaginative planted gardens. Just by the pool is a canvas pavilion providing welcome shade (the perfect spot for lunch or dinner), a barbecue, and a beach hut fitted with a fridge for chilled poolside drinks. For something more energetic, you can wander the fields surrounding the house, or take longer walks through the beautiful mountain forests. Marina's restaurant & bar in Casoli offers traditional Tuscan dishes and is a welcome change for guests who can stir themselves to leave the magic of Settimo Cielo.

Wow, I can't believe that this home is near my late father's home! I did go there most of the time in the past to see my cousins and my aunt, but I never see this house with a swimming pool. This hotel and the pool will be great for me to spend the whole summer there to meet all my other cousins on my father's side of the family. My family and I came here before July 2018. I got to go there again, this time at this hotel. I got to tell my other cousins in Massachusetts about this great place.

A series of ancient buildings, of varying sizes, perched above the village of Casoli in Tuscany. The view is spectacular and for me the high point was swimming slowly up and down the infinity pool, gazing at the tree covered mountains below, with their terracotta and siena villages, topped with squared off castellated towers that are characteristic of the local churches. Inside and out, owner Garry - a British designer - has arranged his collection of ancient and modern with a professional eye for juxtaposition.

I would like to comment on the review posted on 20th of July, which is less than favourable. I was at Settimo Cielo with a couple of friends at the same time as the reviewer and her family were there. We had the best time, and I need not add to the first class reviews that fill this site. It really is idyllic and perfect for a restful, beautiful holiday. I had the impression that this reviewer had expected something quite different and it was a case of the wrong place for this family of three. This is not a 5star immaculate hotel with a large staff, but a beautiful, homely, friendly and slightly quirky escape in the Tuscan Hills. It was quite possibly the best seven days I have ever spent in Italy.

A secluded collection of beautiful and quirky rooms in a stunning location overlooking the valley. The (surprisingly large) pool and terraces are perfect for relaxing while taking in the Tuscan sun and the local towns of Lucca and Bagni di Lucca are great for day trips.

We stayed in Heaven's Gate at the beginning of August, and were sorry and sad to leave 7 days later. Given a location like this, you can't really go wrong. Situated in the charming, unspoilt mountain village of Casoli, high above the Lima Valley, the panoramic views of the Valley and the surrounding forested mountain-sides are truly spectacular. The day weather was for the most part perfect, and we also enjoyed watching a dramatic thunderstorm play out in the skies on our first night, and a shower of shooting stars during the week. It would have been quite easy to remain 'on-site' all week, relaxing by (and in) the amazing infinity swimming pool, but when we were not in the pool we explored the local area. The walled city of Lucca is half an hour away by car, and the Roman spa town of Bagni di Lucca (10 minutes) has shops, retaurants and a small theatre, where we enjoyed a performance of an opera by local boy, Puccini. The rustic 2-bedroom cottage was comfortable, well-equipped for our needs and spotlessly clean. Garry, our host, is a charming gent, helpful and attentive but by no means instrusive. By the end of our week we were seriously relaxed. This stay exceeded our expectations and it would be difficult to imagine how it could have been bettered.
