Charming little Villa With Pool

Space 861 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Located in the mountains behind Viareggio and Camaiore, within 20m from Lucca, Villino Maria is the perfect location to spend your summer holiday in Tuscany. The house features 2 bedrooms, kitchen, 2 toilets, living room, garden and private pool.

The villa is in perfect position to enjoy the whole region: Pisa is 20m away, Florence 1hr, Siena 1.5 hr.

The Garfagnana region, one of the best kept secrets in Italy, is round the corner. Natural attractions, mountainous terrain, caves, sweet rolling hills and jet-set exclusive sea destinations are all within reach. Enjoy one day at the swimming pool and then get ready to join Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio night-life. Or spend a day walking in the woods above the hills to spot wild boars and deer, and at night enjoy the elegant atmosphere of Pietrasanta. Just 10m away, climb to Gombitelli, a small village where all the production of ham and salami is still hand-made. For our guests, the restaurant "Le Meraviglie" will be most glad to be of special service. Just present one of the signed business cards that you will find in the house, to avail of a discount! Lucca, one of the most beautiful towns in Italy (and yet one the least known!) is 30 minutes away. Get lost in its medieval streets and if you are there in July, make sure you check who is going to play at the Summer Festival: the 2015 edition will host artists of the caliber of Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan, Robbie Williams, Lenny Kravitz John Legened and many more (no, sorry, no One Direction up to now :) ). There are not enough characters to describe the beauty of the area, just come see us and you won't regret it. One of the wonderful characteristics of this house is that it is secluded, up in the mountains and surrounded by high trees and forest. The house is very private with no other houses around except the lumber jack who lives up the road a little.

About The Owner

I am Italian, born in Sardinia and my wife is British from Scotland. We have lived in UK, Italy and now Dubai but travel extensively for work reasons, me being an engineer and my wife a photographer. We have this holiday home in Tuscany and use it every summer when it's not being enjoyed by our guests.

Why The Owner chose World

Just to quote one of our guests:"Ideal spot for couples on a romantic retreat or for those eager to explore this beautiful region".

What makes this villa unique

You won't find anything more secluded and cozier than this. And yet, you will be in the centre of one of the most beautiful places in italy and perhaps Europe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stefano hat uns bei unserer Ankunft im Haus empfangen und eine kurze aber ausführliche Einweisung gegeben. Das Haus war sauber und auch alles soweit vorhanden. Das TV ging nicht, aber DVD Recorder und DVDs waren vorhanden, welchen wir aber nicht benutzten oder vermissten. Wir hatten einen schönen Urlaub. Danke :-)

This quaint little rustic villa dates to the 13th century. It was originally a resting stop for the pilgrims heading towards Rome on the Via Francigena as depicted by the little chapel on the entrance road. There are 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a downstairs toilet and cloaks, living room and kitchen. Outside there is a large veranda and pool ( 25' x15') bbq and quarter of an acre of very secluded private garden. It is located in the small town of Montemagno which is 40 minutes from Pisa Airport and close to the beautiful towns of Pietrasanta, Forte di Marmi, Pisa and Lucca with Florence, Cinqueterre Region and Volterra all very reachable by car.

We had a comfortable stay in this lovely stone house which is in a very convenient location.

  • 3 of 5

This is a lovely base to explore the region. We visited Pisa, Lucca and Florence and the Lido De Camiore which is a beautiful beach with plenty of facilities. The house is charming and comfortable with plenty of outdoor seating.

Quaint, peaceful, secluded and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to unwind either by the pool or under the cover of the terrace. Great location to see some amazing sights. Close to the sea but also the mountains. No phone signal but that is just a blessing and allows you to completely switch off. We had a great two weeks and would love to come back

Lovely house in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house and having a pool outside made a big difference. It's totally secluded and private and one can reach a number of interesting places within a very short time. We very much enjoyed being there, and Stefano the owner has been most helpful.

A beautiful villa with lots of character in the heart of Tuscany. Loved every minute of our stay

  • 5 of 5

Amazing stay. The villa was just perfect for our family of 4. If we had any problems the owner was immediately contactable and made things perfect. He even agreed to put a sofa bed in the property so our teenagers didn't have to sleep in the same room. The villa was clean and had everything we could think of provided. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday, within easy reach by car of Pisa, Florence, Verona or Lake Garda for day trips.

A lovely Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the province of Montemagno, the house was a typical charming and comfortable Tuscan villa which was well equipped and had easy access to Viareggio, Camaiore and Lucca etc. There is so much to do and see in this beautiful area! Nice walks and lovely local restaurants and bars ,supermarket 10 mins drive from villa.

It was a pleasure to meet Stefano and Constantino, and thanks again for all your help, may see you again next year?

Wow. It is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

It is everything you could imagine a Tuscan house to be. It is home from home. It has everything you need for a great stay. Well equipped, comfortable, clean, private location with secure parking. The pool is an added bonus for coming back from a hot day trip out. We used it every day. It is near all the Tuscan sightseeing places. We travelled as far down as Siena and as far across as the Chianti wine region but all do able in a day. There is a great supermarket about 10 mins drive down the road and we made great use of the BBQ. if you are going to use this villa then please treat it well as we will definitely be back. Thank you to Stefan for all his help and information before our trip out.
