Booking Villa Allegra was one of the best decisions I've made for a family holiday. The property is well located, safe/secure and is immactuatly maintained. The owner and on property team are fantastic and helped with anything we needed assistance. You can't buy time, but here it stands still. We made many fun family memories here during our stay and plan to return each year if possible.
We stayed for two weeks in the summer at Villa Allegra the property is decorated to a very high standard. It has a wonderful management team that make sure the house, pool and gardens are kept immaculate they will also organise a chef for you if needed.
The Astro Tennis court was a fantastic addition to our family holiday and we all played either in the morning or early evening.
We are looking forward to returning to the Villa for another holiday soon!
As a family of four with two children aged 19 & 21 finding the right holiday balance is never easy. We chose Villa Allegra for all the reasons shown on the listing - and were not disappointed.
The villa itself is in a perfect position, an easy 15 minute walk into town but nonetheless remote and quiet enough that our privacy was never invaded. Finding a property that meets these two criteria is no easy thing and for us, having the proximity of shops and restaurants without always having to drive, whilst at the same time knowing we had our rural retreat, was a delight.
The property has been finished to a beautiful standard and the pool is as large as they say it is! The tennis court on site was the additional clincher for us which meant that the younger adults got a good workout and also allowed great family time.
The downside? Well, it rained one of the days... but hey not sure I can blame that on the villa! And it forced us out to Lucca as well as some of the stunning hillside villages dotted around. Worth the effort.
Overall a great holiday, easy to book, met and checked out with ease and the owner always accessible if we had any queries.
Allegra is stunning, every single aspect has been thought through and is of the highest quality possible. It is SO tasteful and everything is of the highest standard. We have never stayed in such a wonderful location with such a fantastic tennis court and as for the pool...'breathtaking' is an understatement- it is huge (the same size as a large hotel), perfect temperature and totally beautiful. The house keeper and owner are really warm, friendly and helpful and do everything to make your stay perfect. The villa and grounds are immaculate. I worried that on the internet things may not be as perfect as they seem but really- Allegra is more than you can imagine. We had a perfect week and did not leave the villa hardly at all. Is is very close to beaches and Pisa if you do want to visit. Thank you for a perfect week. Truly fantastic. I would recommend this property at the highest level.
We (a family of four with two sons 16 and 19) have rented many times through Owners Direct or agencies, but never have we stayed in a property that felt so much like home and in which every little detail had been so well thought out. The quality of the furnishings was evident throughout the property- linen, cutlery, crockery, cooking equipment all in abundance. This is not a property put together quickly for holiday lets, but one lovingly created for the family's occasional use and those lucky enough to enjoy this beautiful property on a family estate for a holiday stay. The pool is large, well-sited and always perfectly clean. The recently-built tennis court is very well-located, being in an area of shade during the late afternoon and evening. If anything ever occurred, which might happen in any country property, it was dealt with rapidly and effectively by the family's English-speaking housekeeper or maintenance back up. We would not hesitate to recommend this property, and indeed already have to work colleagues.
Camaiore is a lively old village, with many excellent restaurants and shops. Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi villages host the most famous and exclusive Versilia beaches and lie within about 10 km from the villa. Pietrasanta, a city dedicated to art since Michelangelo, who worked here in the 15th century for the Pope and Cappella Sistina, is the centre for sculptors from all over the world. Pisa and the medieval city of Lucca are visited from all over the world for their beautiful churches and palaces. All of these locations are within 10 to 30 km by car. Florence is 45 km away. In the north east, Garfagnana, a mountainous region with beautiful hiking paths, waterfalls and caves (Antro del Corchia). Chianti, San Gimignano, Siena, the Maremma countryside, Cinque Terre and Portofino are all 1-2 hours away.
