About the property

72 sqm, 6-7 beds, 1 bathroom, 230 sqm garden with hydromassage pool

Pretty detached stone house on two levels in the ancient hamlet of Metato, hamlet of Camaiore (LU).

On the ground floor there is a spacious kitchen with all the comforts (refrigerator, freezer, electric oven, microwave, coffee machine) and a bright living room with fireplace, digital terrestrial television, stereo and sea view.

On the first floor there is a large triple room, a bathroom with shower and amenities and a double bedroom with sea view.

Both rooms come with digital terrestrial television.

The entire house is furnished in Tuscan classical style and is complete with linens, crockery and soaps.

A wifi line is active throughout the property.

Externally the garden also develops on two levels

- the top is equipped with a small storage room, a wrought iron porch with a large table for the meals and barbeque area and a solarium area and a whirlpool pool, all with beautiful sea views (the flooring of this level is partially in grass and stones and partly in wood);

- the lower part has a delightful stone terrace with wood-burning oven and a more intimate and collected meals area, also with a wonderful sea view.

The solarium area features sun loungers and typical American Adirondack chairs.

The house is located at the beginning of the village of Metato: this is equipped with a large parking place from which the house is easily accessible on foot and from which it is within walking distance.

Although in direct contact with other homes, the house and garden are secluded and very quiet and are particularly suitable for families, even with small children.

The village of Metato has trails of uphill, sometimes even steep, therefore not suitable for elderly and disabled people.

Pets are allowed only after direct arrangements with the owners and at their discretion.

Optional Services:

- baby bed on request (free of charge)

- baby high chair on request (free of charge)

- twice-weekly housekeeping (payable)

An Amazing Villa and host

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 we are/were incredibly happy with this Villla. The property offers everything you need and the host is committed to ensuring your happiness. The property has amazing views and the village is incredibly charming. The renovations that have been completed at the property have ensured high comfort for its guests.

The pool is big enough to cool off and the terrace is a great spot to lounge around or the kids to play.

Don't forget to bring your insect repellent as there are quite a few mosquitos (hardly the fault of the property though!). It is also a windy drive to Metato but nothing that 99% of drivers could not handle. There are windier and worst roads in Italy that is for sure!

Camaoire is a great little town only 7-10 minute drive to the bottom of the hill where there are some great restaurants and the locals are very friendly.

The Villa is in a great location to visit places like Lucca, Sienna, Firenze, and the coastline.

This is truly a gem of a property and one that we will be returning to!

Erholsamer Urlaub mit fantastischer Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt am Berg oberhalb von Camaiore. Die Straße dorthin ist aber super zu befahren, nur der Weg zum Haus vom Parkplatz aus ist mit viel Gepäck etwas beschwerlich. Camaiore ist nur 10 Minuten entfernt, der Strand in max. 20 Minuten erreichbar.

Das Haus war sehr, sehr sauber. Der Whirlpool größer als erwartet und genauso wie der Garten und die gesamte Anlage sehr gepflegt. Am tollsten war der Ausblick von der Terrasse zum Meer. Auch das grillen und essen im Freien haben wir sehr genossen.

Die Vermieterin war sehr aufmerksam, uns wurde am 1. Tag noch (ungefragt!) eine 4. Liege gebracht und im Vorfeld hat sie eine lange Liste mit Empfehlungen für Restaurants, Ausflüge etc. geschickt. So haben wir z.B. im empfohlenen Strandbad eine Ermäßigung bekommen.

What a great house with the best view

  • 4 of 5

Just Tuscany authentic beautiful and really a house for a family retreat. We spend our time in the garden in the shadows and cooled off in the small pool. About perfect. The owner was online available the whole time and offers so many tips for everything you might need to do.

Since the house is located about 15 min in car from groceryshops planning is nessesary. We love to cook and had to buy some kitchen supplies since the equipment was a little less than we are used to from other rentals. But we survived. Must add that the indoor deco was very authentic antique ans stylish. Clean and neat.

We also recommend to book a table at the bed and breakfast on top of the village. Enjoy enjoy :) from charlottenlund, Denmark

Une semaine parfaite dans un lieu magique avec un emplacement idéal!

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions venus en famille découvrir la Toscane et nous n'avons pas été déçus! La maison correspond en tous points aux photos, et c'est encore plus agréable de la découvrir en vrai! Piscine/jaccuzzi de taille idéale pour nos enfants (5 et 2 ans), tonnelle et transat plus qu'optimisés, point de vue à couper le souffle...tout y est! Attention cependant aux frelons et aux guêpes et prévoir de l'anti-moustique! Des bols seraient aussi plus adaptés pour le petit déjeuner.

La proximité de Pise et Florence est un vrai plus, les ballades à Lido di Camaiore ou les Candalla Waterfalls sont à faire. Je recommande plus que jamais!

Nous avons pensé à un livre d'or pour la maison mais nous n'avons rien trouvé, peut-être que nos successeurs prendront le relais?

Merci pour tout Madame Covani!

During the summer the Versilia also offers a full calendar of cultural tourism:

- Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago (July and August), in the theater on the banks of Lake Massaciuccoli staged operas and in 2014 is celebrating its 60th year;

- Lucca Summer Festival (July), musical event during which the picturesque squares of Lucca welcome concerts of Italian and international artists of repute recognized;
