Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely, well situated to visit both Lucca and Cinque Terre and the surrounding areas. There was a problem with the gas, but Claudia and the owners Roberto and Laura very graciously offered solutions, one of which was to move to another villa, which turned out to be more than we expected: very large, very beautiful, with an unparalleled view! We were very happy with our stay.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great - a substantial old building presented to a very high standard. Claudia, Roberto and Laura were all really welcoming, friendly and helpful, making us feel at home. Good location for getting to Pisa, Lucia, Florence etc. Hire car probably needed though. We would definitely recommend staying there.

Traumhaft einladend

  • 5 of 5

Die Anfahrt gestaltete sich etwas schwierig, da das Haus am Ende einer Sackgasse liegt und nicht ganz einfach zu finden war. Davon abgesehen läßt sich dieses Domizil nur noch als traumhaft beschreiben. Die Fotos entsprechen der Realität, das Haus ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und zeigt einen besonderen Charme. In der Küche sind sämtlichen notwendigen Utensilien vorhanden, es gibt viele verschiedene Sitz- und Aufenthaltsmöglichkeiten, sowohl im Haus, als auch auf dem weitläufigen Grundstück. Der Pool bietet eine sehr schöne Erfrischung. Alles ist sehr sauber und in ordentlichem Zustand.

Roberto und Laura sind aufmerksame und freundliche Gastgeber und standen jederzeit als Ansprechpartner zur Verfügung. Das gleiche gilt für Claudia, die wir ebenfalls jederzeit kontaktieren konnte, auch wenn es nur um Ausflugs- oder Einkaufstipps ging.

Viele nette Orte sind innerhalb kurzer Fahrzeit mit dem Auto erreichbar und auch zum Strand nach Viareggio ist es nicht weit. Der Kontrast zwischen Meer und hügeligen Olivenplantagen ist besonders reizvoll.

Wir werden allen Freunden und Bekannten davon schwärmerisch erzählen.

Erholsamer Urlaub in komfortablem Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren Ende Juli für 2 Wochen mit 2 Erwachsenen und 2 großen Teenagern dort. Das Haus ist groß, die Küche gut eingerichtet. Mit zwei Badezimmern auch sehr komfortabel. Wenn Durchzug über die Fenster wg. der Wärme nicht mehr ausreichte, konnte man in den Schlafräumen eine Klimaanlage anstellen.

Die Vermieter waren sehr nett und ihre Verwalterin Claudia sehr hilfsbereit, wenn es Fragen oder Anliegen gab. Wir haben uns dort wohlgefühlt, hatten einen schönen Urlaub und können die Unterkunft weiter empfehlen.

Rundum gelungener Aufenthalt in sehr schöner Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus hat uns sehr gut gefallen: mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, auf großem Grundstück mit Garten bzw. Olivenhain bei gleichzeitig zentraler Lage und tollem Ausblick über Massarosa und die Umgebung - vor allem von der eigenen Dachterrasse aus. Für zwei Erwachsene und zwei Kinder sehr viel Platz. Uns war vorher gar nicht bewusst, dass außer uns niemand das Haus nutzen würde, auch nicht der freundliche Vermieter selbst. Haus und Pool laden dazu ein, auch mal einen ausflugsfreien Tag vor Ort zu verbringen, auch der Ort Massarosa ist nicht unattraktiv. Gerade für unsere ca. zehnjährigen Kinder war der Pool wichtig, der zwar nicht sehr groß und tief ist, aber ausreichend Raum für Abkühlung und Spaß im Wasser bietet. Die zentrale Lage mit Autobahnanbindung ermöglicht die Kombination von Städtetrips z.B. nach Lucca, Pisa oder Pietrasanta, Strandausflügen sowie Touren in die Berge. Wir haben uns willkommen gefühlt und können uns sehr gut vorstellen, wiederzukommen.

Danke Laura & Roberto & Claudia
