Possibility to book the use of a tent ( large umbrella) which has 2 sun beds, 2 lounge chairs, 2 sitting chair and a table, in a Beach Club in Lido di Camaiore. Daily cost Euro 30

Consider that the tent and the use of it in a Beach club without our agreement is 60 Euro in that area, which is only 25 minutes by car from the house. We advice to book even before arrival to have more possibility , because having 5 properties, it’s so busy.

During the summer Lucca welcomes some of the most famous singers in the world for the "Summer Festival" concerts held in the main square of the city.

In the area of Monte Carlo (Lucca), a typical medieval village, there are numerous wineries that offer tastings and sell their own wines.

Just twenty minutes away are the beaches of Versilia. Apart from Viareggio, famous for its carnival, Forte dei Marmi is a Mecca for shoppers and nightlife.

While in the new open-air theater on the Massaciuccoli lake, in Torre del Lago Puccini, 20 km from the villa, in front of the villa where Puccini wrote some of his best pieces, the Puccini Festival takes place. From June to August, the composer's most popular operas are performed in a spectacular setting ..

By motorway or train you can easily reach Portofino and the Cinque Terre in Liguria, characterized by ancient villages bordering on the sea, which represent one of the most beautiful natural sites in the world.

In winter the ski resort of Abetone, just an hour's journey, offers facilities and ski runs for winter sports fans.

How to get there:: The villa is set in the countryside around Lucca, about 10 km far from the center of the town. Pisa airport is quite small and you pass through the formalities quickly. An alternative airport is Florence. 20minutes from Pisa, 45 minutes from Florence to reach the town. Direct flight from New york (JFK) to Pisa (PSA) operated by Delta Airlines. From Pisa Airport:- Take indications from Pisa Airport to Motorway (Autostrada A12) in direction of Genova. Take 1st exit on to Autostrada A11 towards Firenze(Florence) and take the first exit off this motorway for Lucca. Follow indications for city center (Centro) and you will see the walls of the city in front of you. Follow signs for Camaiore. Go along this road for 10 km and when you reach San Martino in Freddana turn right for Loppeglia/Fiano and after 200 meters, when the climb beginnings, take the first little street on right and continue for 200 meters until the house.

About Mimicha

This Holiday House belongs to my parents from 1990 .My father restored it few years ago, when I had a degree in literature and Languages in Pisa. It was my dream have contacts with foreign people and practice languages everyday.

Mimicha purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Mimicha chose Lucca Area

I ‘m so interested to other cultures and I like dealing with people from all over the world. I live quite next the house, this area means a lot for me, here are my origins. I was born here and grew here, I travelled a lot but this is my place, I know its products and the uses of my earth and with my job I’d like to express what really this earth is : its hills, perfumes, green, special food and traditions.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is the place to know “my” region. Here is a strategic point to have a global view of Tuscany : Arts( Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Siena and all other cities) Beach(Versilia beachside with all his comforts) Mountains ( Abetone )Foods and wine tasting (Garfagnana, Chianti) or just relax and activities( the property has private swimming pool and tennis and golf course) . These are just some example of what our place offers. That means : one hour to reach whatever you are looking for in Tuscany. Enjoy your stay!

Veel nice, well equiped appartement.

  • 4 of 5

The two of us stayed for a full week in casa Mimi. We were welcomed by Mimicha who is very friendly and helpful. The appartement is cosy, nicely decorated and very well equiped. We do a lot of home Cooking and found everything we needed. The service provided by the family who runs the rental was great. We had some issue with the warmwaterboiler and the boiler was replaced the same day.

We prefer reading objective reviews when we select our holiday destination so here is why we deducted one star.

The appartement is very close to ,at the back of the house of the owners, Mimicha's parents. Lovely and very sweet people who gave us our privacy and even some appatizers when they were having diner. Expect a few cars and a friendly wave a few times a Day.

Reviewing beds is very personal. For us the matras was a bit soft and saggy with the springs noticable. We didn't sleep great so we would suggest upgrading the matras.

You definately need a car to get around.

All and all we were very pleased with the place and gladly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you so much for your review. I m happy when people enjoy our efforts, We do all we can for our clients because our goal is a good souvenir of a nice staying in our property. You have well done writing about the mattress, nobody did it before. in fact I'll do a poll with next guests and if the most do not appreciate we will change it surely. Even if it will be difficult because in may someone told me was quite hard, so It’s a personal opinion, that s why I d like to have an average of opinions, and I’ll ask everybody just to a have an idea at the end of season and change it if necessary. I want to thank these guests that were very pleasant and nice! Mimicha

Lovely 3 weeks!!

  • 5 of 5

We had lovely 3 weeks for our first visit to Italy,

The pool was fantastic and just what was needed in the summer heat.

The villa is well equipped and comfortable it is in a rural location but also within easy reach of many interesting places.

We spent some time in Pisa on our way to the villa and then visited Cinque Terre (fantastic!!) San Gemignano, Lucca, Monte Carlo and its surrounding vineyards as well as testing a few of the many varieties of wine. We walked some of the many paths around the villa and made use of the excellent outside dining area where we had some very nice meals relaxing in the evenings and watching the shooting stars.

Mimicha who met us at the villa at the start of our holiday was very helpful and easily contacted if we had any problems and the owner was also very friendly and told us some of the history of the villa and the surrounding area.

We had a really lovely, relaxing weeks!!

Our Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect relaxing holiday ... the villa stayed cool all day which was lovely and had everything we needed. The aspect was simply beautiful. The welcome and hospitality was truly wonderful. Being woken by the sound of birds and watching the fireflies sparkle at night, a glimpse of a female deer at the edge of the forest .. stunning. Unspoilt Italy. Thank you for making this my best holiday ever.

charming and lovely, for Tuscany connoisseur

  • 5 of 5

while being very privately settled, our cocooning cottage stay wouldn't be perfect without lots of accompanying gourmet meals carefully prepared by Mimi, along with kindful attentions of the owners.

The house comfort and equipment were up to our expectations, while matching the descriptions.

Calm environment, and at the same time at close reach of so many breathtaking landscapes as well as historical small and larger towns.

For those with an eye for the finer detail...

  • 5 of 5

Nice and cosy little house. Lot of wood and natural stone used and with a personal touch of the owners. Very well equipped (as described), clean and for two persons more than enough space. Should be still comfortable for four. Nice and friendly owners. Gave us excellent tips concerning traditional restaurants - best food experience we had since years. Definitely a recommendation!
