Make a holiday villa in Massa-Carrara your home away from home

From marble mountains to sandy beaches, medieval squares to nature reserves, Massa-Carrara has an extraordinary diversity of habitats and attractions. The province is situated on the border with Liguria and Emilia Romagna and is named after its two main towns. The area is characterized by its 20 kilometres of gorgeous sandy beaches and the Apuan Alps, a magnificent mountain chain. With wonderful architecture and plenty of outdoor sports and activities, Massa-Carrara is a popular, family-friendly holiday destination.

HomeAway has an exquisite range of holiday villas in Massa-Carrara in all the major areas. Whether visitors want to be close to the beach, mountains or historical towns of Massa and Carrara, there’s a holiday property to suit those needs. Massa-Carrara holiday farmhouses are also available, with spacious grounds, private swimming pools and expansive outdoor terraces. All the properties offer premier comforts with tastefully furnished living rooms and bedrooms.

Things to do

-Historic monuments: The winding, cobblestone streets of Massa’s medieval quarter are a big draw. Two of the town's must-see sights are the cathedral with its history of over 800 years, and the 16th-century Palazzo Ducale of Cybo Malaspina. This was once the residence of Napoleon's sister, Élisa. Carrara also has numerous sites of historic interest with a Romanesque-Gothic cathedral and a 16th-century Ducal Palace.

-Natural attractions: Carrara is known as the “city of marble” for its quarries, such as the working mine at La Piana. These are located in the nearby mountains and some can be visited. They are spectacular sites containing vast deposits of the rock. Marble has been quarried here for approximately 2,000 years.

-Outdoor activities: The hilly and mountainous terrain of the Apuan Alps offers visitors with Massa-Carrara holiday farmhouses ample outdoor activities. There’s hiking and mountain biking in the autumn, spring and summer, and skiing at resorts in Lunigiana during the winter. Massa-Carrara’s Apuan Coast features attractive, wide beach expanses, but tourists may also feel revitalised with a trip to the countryside by Lucca Region, where gorgeous holiday rentals are also available.

-Food and drink: Like many places in Tuscany, Massa-Carrara has its own regional delicacies. Meat-filled tordelli and lasagne intordellate are two typical Massese pasta dishes, and herb cakes filled with cheese, egg and wild vegetables are a local favourite. Spongata is a typical desert. This is a puff-pastry tart containing dried fruit and jam.

Weather in Massa-Carrara

Massa-Carrara has a warm, temperate and sunny climate with mild winters and balmy summers. The Apuan Alps shelters the region from the cold winds of the north. August is the hottest month when the temperature can climb to 28°C. February is the coldest month when the average daily temperature can drop to below freezing.

Travel to Massa-Carrara

The visitor with a holiday villa in Massa-Carrara has a number of options to get to the area. The airport choices include Genua Airport (120 kilometres), Pisa Airport (40 kilometres) and Florence Airport (100 kilometres). There are good rail connections to many major Italian cities and a network of A-roads runs through the province.

Un’oasi di pace in Toscana

5 of 5
Abbiamo soggiornato alla Casatorre nell’appartamento Lunigiana ad agosto. L’appartamento è molto confortevole, pulito, con due belle stanze da letto e un comodo bagno con una grande doccia. La cucina è spaziosa e ben attrezzata con tutto l’occorrente. C’è anche un microonde che ci è stato molto utile. Il giardino è davvero incantevole, ampio, circondato da alberi d’alto fusto e molto ben tenuto e offre una vista mozzafiato sui monti circostanti. Ci sono spazi arredati per poter mangiare all’aperto e barbecue per fare una grigliata. I nostri bambini hanno particolarmente apprezzato la piscina di acqua salata! Siamo stati benissimo alla Casatorre, abbiamo trovato un ambiente rilassante ed easy. Ci torneremo di sicuro e la consigliamo vivamente!

Lovely apartment in a fabulous part of Italy!

4 of 5
We had five fabulous nights here, the apartment is really lovely, lots of space and everything you need as very well equipped. The area is amazing....easy reach of the coast and the mountains; the perfect mix! The pool is small and above ground, which was not obvious from the photos, but with so much to do in the area it didn't matter to us. Thank you!
