Very nice sport for athletes

  • 5 of 5

This roomy apartment was brilliant for us. We went to Viareggio for a training camp (running) and both the green park and the pine wood were very close and easy for us to reach. We needed both the washing machine and the dishwasher and both worked perfectly. The apartment is light and the bathrooms are beautiful. The kitchen is maybe a little bit small (the kitchen table is a little bit small), but the dining table in the living room was big enough for eight people (at least). Francesca and her helper Anna were helpful and trusworthy.

Excellent appartment for a holiday near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday in Francescas appartment. Everything went fine like the year before. Because of the friendly Mail-contact with Francesca everything was perfectly organized when we arrived. Two minutes after we arrived the employee was at the appartment to welcome us. First thing I did was to buy the parking ticket at the newspaper shop on the other side of the street. It was still 20 € for the week. Having done that, the parking issue was solved for the rest of the holiday. Then we used the elevator to bring everything in the appartment which is on the second floor. The appartment itself has three rooms with 4 beds each, two bathrooms, a living room and the kitchen. We found everything we needed. Against the heat there were one mobile air-condition, one ventilator fixed to the ceiling and one mobile ventilator.

To buy the groceries there are two supermarkets in walking distance and a larger one five minutes away by car. Most time we were at the beach, which can be reached in two minutes. If there was something missing or we had a special wish, we just had to call Francesca or the employee end everything was solved.

In the evening we took several walks along the strip or the pinewood. The variety of restaurants or bars is large so that we had no problem finding the right place for the evening.

We had a pleasant and relaxing holiday in Viareggio and Francescas very good appartment which was the perfect base for our trip. We will definitely come again.

Perfect place for a family holiday at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on saturday afternoon at 4:00 pm. We were a little early, because the apartment was supposed to be cleaned at 05:00 pm. Nevertheless we could leave our luggage in the apartment and did the shopping because we arrived without groceries. To put the luggage in the apartment we used the elevator, because the apartment is on the second floor.

To do the shopping there are two main possibilities. If you take the car, I would recommend Esselunga (5 Minutes to drive) where you can buy everything you need. The other supermarket is Carrefour which is within walking distance.

After the shopping the apartment was ready to move in. The apartment was clean and tidy. It has three sleeping-rooms with four sleeping possibilities in each of it. The beds are italian style (quite soft). If you like the cushions a little harder I recommend to bring along your own.

Furthermore there are two bathrooms with toilet and bathtub. Aditionally one bathroom is equipped with a washing machine.

The kitchen was well equipped (including dishwasher). We prepared our meals nearly every day and had no problems.

After we moved in we had to solve the parking problem, which is really none. On the other side of the street is a kiosk where you can buy a parking ticket for the whole week. You just have to fill in a form and chose the right sector (C). Then you pay 20 € for the week and put a sticker on the windshield of your car. Thus you can park your car in the whole sector. To find a free parking space is a little tricky, especially the weekends are full. But with a little patience we found a parking space within 10 minutes max. Most times we could park the car in Via Vespucci near the apartment sometimes right in front of the entrace. Anna, which is your contact in Viareggio gave me the tip how to solve the parking problem. Furthermore she gave me a map of the city so I could see where to find the supermarkets, the station and the parking-sector. She was very helpful.

Before the holiday we looked up the next bagno at google earth. We booked Bagno Vespucci and so we had our place at the beach less than five minutes away.

In the evening we did a walk in the pinewood on the other side of the street or at the strip. Restaurants there are a lot. You will certainly find one of your taste. We made trips to Lucca and Pisa (less than 30 minutes by car). Both cities are wonderful.

We liked our holiday at Francescas apartment very much and we will come back in 2015.

Perfect location for family-vacation in Viareggio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for two weeks in June 2012 with 2 adults and 3 little children. The apartment proved to be an excellent location:

- It is centrally located: two minutes to the beach, café/bakery/supermarket/restaurant just around the corner, railway station within walking distance.

- It is spacious, well equipped and nicely furnished: many beds, dishwasher, washing machine, modern and well equipped kitchen, nice bathrooms.

- It is light and sunny.

- It was very clean and in a well-run house where we could leave the baby stroller in the entrance area.

- The contact with the owner was friendly and Francesca provided us with helpful information before and during our stay.

Hence, the apartment was the perfect foundation for a great holiday in beautiful Viareggio. And yes, we will absolutely return to Viareggio and would love to stay again in this apartment.

The location was very good. In the future the property owners should tell their guests that parking is available on pay basis, if you are lucky enough to find it, and not have to drive around for 2-1/2 hrs for a space. Owners should be up front and honest with guests. We were told the rental was on second floor, when in fact it was on the 4th. Had to walk up 4 flights of stairs whenever we needed to go out. Overall the apartment was very good, location was very good, just the fact of the 4 flights of stairs and the parking fiasco we woul not rent it again.

great apartment...........BUT!

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I and two friends booked this apartment for the first week in June this year. Let me say at the outset that this apartment is a great facility in an equally good location. What disappointed us was the unclean state the apartment was in on our arrival, and what became obvious was that it had not been properly cleaned for a long time. Also the kitchen was very poorly equipped, with a mixture of cutlery and crockery and there wasn't a set of wine glasses The bedroom linen was shabby and we had to use a bedcover for sheets in one of the bedrooms. We also had a problem on our arrival getting access at the agreed entry time, and had to hang around for an hour before we got in.We were all very disappointed to find the apartment in the condition it was in and so poorly equipped, and hope that Fransesca deals with these issues. Let me finish by saying that we did not allow these problems to spoil our holiday,and that we had a teriffic time in beautiful Viareggio and will most certainly be back.

Owner's Response: Dear John, Thank you very much for your review!! I am happy you had a beautifull week with your friends in Viareggio,"Versilia's pearl" I already started to use your suggestions and change what is necessary . Unfortunatly I was not in Viareggio at this time: and from your words I understand that Noemi,in charge of the apartment, was not the best. She is asking me why did you not tell her about the bad cleaning at your arriving and she would clean again. For this: Looking at your contract I definetly send you back the sum you gave her for the cleaning. € 65 of which I keep the receipt of my Bank.on July 31 And I was obliged to chang help:now Anna is in charge of the apartment and she is perfect. Hoping you will come soon again Best regards Francesca
