Claudia purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Claudia chose Camaiore

I have choosed this house as my heart instantly warmed. A strong feeling of freedom and peace! A breathtaking view to sea and Tuscany islands up to Corsica island, sweet hills of olives and forest surrounding the house made me feel wrapped and warmed.

So close Apuan Alps stretching on the north side convey a strong sense of never ending peace.

It is an amazing place, a paradise surrounded by nature even though at few minutes from "civilized" world. Variety of beautiful birds during the day, night birds lull you with their melodies.

Foothpaths in the forest and olive groves is just behind the house: You can meet squirrels, badgers, foxes and even deer.

- I can recommend even in WINTER: mild temperatures even in the coldest months: average +6°/+12. No snow, no ice ,O)

--- Recommend in winter: low cost flights to PISA (Firenze, Genova or Bologna). rental cars even very cheap in winter ,O)

Charming Italian Stone Country House Experience

  • 5 of 5

Claudia has created a wonderful stone country house experience in the hills overlooking Viareggio. I loved the views of the quiet village on the adjacent ridge and the distant Elba and Corsica isles, the walks through the woods to a small Village restaurant and watching many amazing sunsets. She is passionate about her place and was always helpful to make my experience memorable. I thoroughly recommend this unique charming getaway! 5 Stars!

SUPERBE VUE ET CALME EN PLEINE NATURE

  • 5 of 5

SUPERBE VAVANCES DANS LA NATURE ET LE CALME AVEC VUE MAGNIFIQUE

Nous avons passé 2 semaines de détente complète dans un paysage merveilleux. L’ancienne maison joliment restaurée par Claudia offre tout le confort,terrasse et piscine au sommet de la colline offre une vue splendide et le calme absolu, c’est la dernière maison au bout du chemin.

La disposition des logements permet à chacun de garder son indépendance et son intimité.

L’endroit est un parfait point de départ pour les visites dans la région : Lucques, Pise, Florence, Carrare, Cinque terre, ……

Cerise sur la gâteau, l’accueil et la gentillesse de Claudia qui se plie en 4 pour vous faire passer de bonnes vacances. Elle est de très bon conseil pour les visites, restos, bonnes adresses pour le vin et l’huile, ….

C’était tellement bien que nous y retournons cet hiver.

A bientôt Claudia et encore merci.

Carine, Jean-Pascal et croquette

A true gem hidden away in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly awesome place, no less. A lovely old Italian stonehouse with a genuine rustic feel to it. The pool is for sharing but we had it pretty much to ourselves whenever we wanted it (the other guests using it at different times). Our daughter practically lived in the pool. There are breathtaking views all around, also when relaxing in the pool. Feels like you're really out of the way, in a unique spot high up and looking down on the world. Beautiful mountains to one side and sea and town to the other. We couldn't wish for more. Claudia makes a perfect and loving host. She'll stop at nothing to make sure you're enjoying your stay. She's extremely sweet and kind and generous and attentive. The best host we've ever had, in fact. She brought us pizza the first night because we arrived much later than planned and were rather exhausted after delayed flights and getting lost on our way to the house. It would be very hard not to have a great holiday in Claudia's place - a true, hidden-away gem.

Exquisite beauty

  • 5 of 5

This is without doubt in my top 3 places I have stayed, I cannot fault it. If tranquil, with beautiful views and a rustic charm are your thing then this is your place. Would I come here again, pack my bag, fly to pizza, hire a a car and in 45 minutes be sitting in front of that view – just try and stop me.

Once you have mastered the winding journey up the hill to the villa, because you are the last house on this road, you will just want to return so you can step out of the car and breath the air.

A half-hour drive from Lucca and Pizza, just over an hour to Florence it is the ideal launch pad to visit the fabulous sights that are in this part of Tuscany.

The food I this area – don’t get me started! From home cooked to Michelin star we did not have a bad meal.

Claudia is the consummate host, on the phone if you need anything, keeping the pool just right and full of local knowledge. Thank you Claudia you made a big difference to making this a special holiday.

Beautiful, nature isolated place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in the appartment from Claudia.

A wine at our arrival was the start of many beautiful days. The seaview and the lovely nature around this awesome place made our holidays very comfortable!

We will come back again!

Amazing place with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely amazing place to stay. It is at the top of a steep hill (10 hairpin bends) and with no other houses neareby. The views are spectacular and the apartment very comfortable. Claudia, the manager made us extremely welcome, providing us with wine and food when we arrived and loads of information about the surrounding countryside. The apartment had just been redecorated and everything (including the swimming pool) was new. We will definitely go back as there is so much to explore in the area and we could not possibly find a better apartment to stay in.
