Beautiful house, beautiful village, dubious wifi, awkward parking

  • 4 of 5

This house is lovely, tastefully decorated and furnished, fabulous old features combined with effective air conditioning and facilities. Bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely, shower powerful and hot water plentiful. Neighbours were lovely and happy to speak to us, the local restaurant simply superb. We had no problems preparing food with the facilities, the balcony a beautiful eating space.

The wifi didn't work. It uses a mobile sim but the mobile signal was not strong enough to make it useful. As I needed wifi for work while I was away, this was frustrating. The village has very limited parking and this was not clear from the description. We struggled to park the car on several occasions. The road for accessing the village was single track up the side of the hills: exilerating but took its toll over the week we were there.

Overall no complaints, but I wish the description had been a little more honest. We would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Andy, I'm sorry for the discontinuous function of the Wi-Fi, although this is not depending on me but on the "third-world-service" of the Italian tele-communication companies who get good money from the users but give deficient services and don't even care about that! It is really a depressing situation to be ashamed of! This mal-function regards phone calls too: it's generally very hard to reach connections, as it should be in Countries which claim to be social, advanced and modern! I indeed advised about this handicap in my description: "There is a Wi-Fi router in the house but, unfortunately, the Internet connection is locally not too strong!" In spite of this all, I look forward to having you back as a guest soon again! Take care! Alberto

Beautiful holiday home...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful Torcigliano holiday home early June 2016. With two double bedrooms and two bathrooms we had plenty of space - beds were very comfy, excellent showers (great water pressure!). Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated, this home has everything you need for your vacation, although we didn't use the kitchen facilities - we were in Tuscany, after all! At the end of the road is a fabulous trattoria, Il Mattarello, run by Antonio and Sabrina and we ate there most nights - it's that good. Food exceptional, very reasonably priced (local chianti 1 euro a glass!). Hard to find a poor meal, to be honest - I'd recommend sticking to the trattorias as the quality's excellent and prices beyond reasonable. If you do fancy a 'treat', head to Da Beppino in Pietrasanta (it's signposted as you head through the town itself) - fantastic meat cooked over an open grill!

Nearest town is Caramiore - not touristy at all, so much gesturing when ordering - which we loved. Head to Gran Café in the town square for breakfast/a snack, to sit back over a pastry and café latte and watch the locals catch-up. Lovely...

Easy drive to the beach if, like us, you need to unwind on a sun lounger for a day or so - from Caramiore head towards Pietrasanta and then Marina di Pietrasanta before turning right at the seafront and picking your spot (we always went back to Ascuitti (Forte dei Marmi), approx. four kilometres along - free parking on a little side street and fab folk running the place - 15 euro for two, including loungers, chairs, umbrella, spotless toilets - reasonable for the area.

We drove in to Pisa and parked pretty much opposite the piazza where the leaning tower is - just follow the signs to Pisa from Caramiore and it's pretty much a straight road all the way. Large car park (signposted) as you head in to the city (says it's parking for the tower). Lucca's also well worth a visit - stunning walled city approx. 30k from the house.

You'll need a car if you're staying at this home - it's perched on the side of a mountain, up a sometimes winding and steep road. Don't be put off though, as it's all good - us English ladies managed perfectly well, so you will too!

Access to the property is easily arranged - just call Sophia (she's English) once you've picked up your hire car - and she'll meet you at the house to let you in/show you around. Dr Alberto (owner) is extremely helpful, quick to respond to emails and provide excellent advice...

Jolie maison,décorée avec goût,distribution des pièces originale et sympathique,équipement parfait

  • 5 of 5

La maison est située en limite de commune, dans un " cul de sac " en zone de petite montagne, d'une accessibilité qui permet de gagner en confiance après 2 à 3 allers et retours vers, ou de la commune de rattachement CAMAIORE.

La situation géographique est favorable à l'organisation de programmes de visites touristiques et culturelles de grand intérêt, sans nécessiter de trop longs moments passés en voiture.

Le propriétaire, bien que ne résidant pas sur place, est très disponible via mail ou/et SMS pour fournir tous les renseignements nécessaires à la meilleure organisation du séjour.

C'est une destination à recommander à qui recherche le calme après avoir visité, jour après jour, une région riche en découvertes architecturales, mais aussi bien agréable au plan gastronomique.

Bergdorpje met beste restaurant van de omgeving

  • 4 of 5

Dorpje ligt afgelegen en toegangsweg is smal, dus rekening mee houden bij nachtelijke aankomst, maar de ontvangst /opvang was uitstekend . Voor wie de combinatie zoekt van bergachtige rust en dicht bij strand en geweldige steden als Lucca en Florence, is dit een geweldige lokatie. Daar komt bij dat op enkele meters afstand een zeer authentiek restaurant (met alleen locals en een van de beste ravioli's ever) aanwezig is (no pizza's) . Keuken uitrusting in huisje was zeer goed, dus zelf koken met Italiaanse ingredienten is ook mogelijk.Zeer romantisch huisje (airco's op beide slaapkamers) met fenomenaal uitzicht. De eigenaar communiceert uitgebreid en adequaat van tevoren. Voor wie een vakantie door wil brengen in het Noord-West van Toscane (is bergachtiger dan het "Chianti-Toscane") is deze plek een pareltje (wel auto meenemen of huren) . Zeker als Lucca je reisdoel is : DOEN.

Deo volente, zullen wij , als we nog een keer kiezen voor dit gebied, graag nog eens in casa Manzetti in Torciglione verblijven

Maison rénovée avec grand soin, très bien équipée et très propre.

  • 5 of 5

La maison est spacieuse avec des espaces bien distincts, tous les équipements sont présents et la maison est très propre. Il n'y a rien à redire. La literie est excellente, l'emplacement est au calme sur les hauteurs mais reste proche de la plage, des villes touristiques, des 5 Terres...

Il faut tenir compte de l'accès pour la maison, c'est une petite route de montagne où les croisements sont difficiles ainsi que le stationnement près de la maison. Très pratique pour les petites voitures, moins pour les autres.

Hormis cela, c'est parfait et très agréable.

Ein toller Italien Urlaub für die ganze Familie

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften tolle Urlaubstage in dem liebevoll hergerichteten und eingerichteten Ferienhaus verbringen. Vorab wurden wir mit tollen Ausflugsziele und Informationen vom Vermieter Herrn Dr. Monzetti verssorgt. Auch die gute Seele vor Ort Sophia half uns mit nützlichen Informationen weiter, so das einem erholsamen Start für den Toskanaurlaub nichts im Wege stand. Die tollen Bilder für die Unterkunft hier sind das eine, aber das ganze vor Ort zu erleben das andere. Laue Sommerabende, das Mittelmeer in Sichtweite, ein nicht zu hektisches oder lautes italienisches Flair durch das Restaurant und die lieben Nachbarn, den tollen Balkon (wenn man dieses Highlight überhaupt Balkon schimpfen darf) all das machten die Abende bei einer guten Flasche Wein unvergesslich!! Tagsüber steht einem vom Badeurlaub, über Städtereisen (Florenz, Pisa, Volterra) bis zu kulturellem und landschaftlich schönen Ausflügen (Vinci und das Geburtshaus von Leonardo da Vinci) nichts im Wege. Wohnung und Gegend ist einfach traumhaft und jede weitere Beschreibung würde diesen tollen Urlaub einfach nicht gerecht. Fünf Sterne!!!

Car: necessary

Torcigliano di Camaiore is a historical, small and very quiet village (less than 100 inhabitants) located on the hills of Versilia at an altitude of 390 metres.

The house is located at the beginning of the village. From there you have access to woods and paths for excursions -on foot or by mountain bike- through the heart of a beautiful nature and until the villages in the neighbourhood. One of the most visited, thanks to its several family-managed factories producing salami, ham, sausages, etc. is Gombitelli.

20 metres from the house there is an excellent typical Tuscan trattoria where one can enjoy home-made regional specialities at very reasonable prices.

Whenever you're longing for a real fantastic pizza, the suggestion is to visit the Pizzeria/Ristorante "La Pieve" in the village "La Pieve" on the way to Camaiore, less than 10 minutes drive from the house.

Well-known beach locations of the famous Versilia coast are easy to be reached by car in less than half an hour: Lido di Camaiore, Viareggio, Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, etc.
