Claudio purchased this apartment in 1962

Why Claudio chose Versilia

Surrounding area offers so many possibilities of fun, many attractive sites to visit, almost all sportive activities in nature are practicable. Although looking forward coming back home to relax enjoying aperitives and cocktails near the pool, cooking delicious recipes of Italian cuisine, grilling fresh fish with good local wine.

Relax and reading books in the shadow of olive trees, escaping with romantic excursions in the wood, swimming in the great pool, or diving in the fresh water of natural pools in Candalla reachable in 15 minutes, or to the warm sea in 20 minutes!

I can assure blissful and quiet sleep await you here....

What makes this apartment unique

Recommended even in winter, thanks to the very mild temperatures: ideal to visit historical towns like Lucca and Firenze, to enjoy hiking on the beach, mountainbiking trails from mountains to sea through the forests, olive groves, ancient village enjoying breathtaking landscapes.

You can relax the lukewarm sun in the ever green garden, even you would appreciate the raining day under the great porch or loggia

Warm atmosphere to cuddle yourself in front of fireplace....

Just perfect ....

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Ponky, which is the old converted barn - it was very spacious with good facilities (two bathrooms was especially good!). The owners and their family couldn't have been more helpful - they were on hand if you wanted any local information or advice but also left you alone to enjoy your holiday. We travelled with our son and small dog and this was a blissful place to stay.

As per a previous review, you really do get the both of both (or all) worlds. We had a few days where we just stayed around the villa, played table tennis and relaxed by the pool - which is very clean and a good size. The views are absolutely amazing and the sun stays with you the whole day. We also went off sightseeing and visiting local beaches - they are plentiful and the ones we opted for were not crowded. It really is an ideal location to do both and the road connections are very straightforward. We even did a ferry trip to Isola Elba, which was stunning.

All of us, including our son (19 yrs) really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Best of both worlds!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this place is wonderful, set in the hills but also 15 minutes from the coast and their sandy beaches. The property is as you would expect very rustic. The outdoors is what made it for us with great seating area and magical 360 degree views are breathtaking.The grounds are very well and the pool is large and clean. Roberto the owner is warm, helpful and a very nice guy! We went with our two teenage boys and they loved pool and the table tennis. I would have give 5* but there is a lack of kitchen equipment. We loved it though!

Sommer, Sonne, Superurlaub...

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Ferienwohnung (Ponky) war einfach nur toll. Sie war sauber und gemütlich. Wir waren als Familie mit 5 Personen da. Unsere Kinder konnten den ganzen Tag im Swimmingpool toben und wir in den Liegestühlen in dem wunderschönen, ruhigen Garten entspannen. Die Fahrt zum Feriendomizil war etwas abenteuerlich, da die Gassen sehr schmal sind, aber gerade das macht den kleinen Ort so liebenswert. Es gibt einige Pizzerien und wir konnten Ausflüge in die nähere Umgebung machen (Pisa, schöne Strände...). Die Betreuung vor Ort durch Roberto und Diego war sehr persönlich und nett. Wir fühlten uns sehr willkommen und kommen bestimmt mal wieder.

Kleine Oase auf den toskanischen Hügeln

  • 4 of 5

Das Cottage Rose liegt auf den toskanischen Hügeln, abseits des Touristenstroms und dennoch nicht allzu weit entfernt von den schönen, weiten Stränden (zum Beispiel von Viareggio) - ideal für einen entspannten Urlaub. Das Cottage ist klein, aber für zwei Personen ausreichend. Wunderbar ist die schöne, gut ausgestattete Terrasse, in der wir uns sehr gerne aufgehalten haben. Ebenfalls ein Highlight ist der grosse gepflegte Garten mit Pool. Die Wohnung selbst ist hingegen eher bescheiden ausgestattet; es fehlt nicht am Notwendigen, hat Bett und Tisch, aber zum Beispiel kein Sofa oder sonstwie einen bequemen Sessel. Das ist bei schönem Wetter kein Problem, da man sich hauptsächlich draussen aufhält. Wir aber hatten Pech mit dem Wetter, und so war das, was sonst als Vorteil gilt eher negativ: Die schattige Lage hat uns viel Feuchtigkeit beschert - das Bett wurde nie richtig trocken, und das haben wir als unangenehm empfunden. Dennoch haben wir uns im Rose wohl gefühlt, nicht zuletzt wegen der grossen Freundlichkeit der Gastgeber. Danke dafür.

Top Haus mit sehr nettem und hilfreichem Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Wir können uns im Nachhinein nur nochmals bei unseren Gastgebern und bei Claudia bedanken für den sehr gelungenen Aufenthalt im Carnasciale. Wenn Sie Ruhe suchen und ihnen ca. 12 km zum nächsten Strand nicht zuviel sind, sind Sie hier genau richtig. Im von uns angemieteten Bouganville hat man neben Internetanschluss und alles was man in einem Haus so braucht außerdem von der überdachten Terrasse einen grandiosen Blick auf die umliegenden Berge. Der Ort Pieve/Camaiore liegt relativ zentral. So ist man schnell in Piesa, Lucca oder sogar Florenz. Wir bevorzugten Florenz mit dem Zug aufzusuchen, dem wir in Lucca (30km entfernt) zustiegen. Die Kosten sind hierfür hin und zurück günstiger als der Parkplatz vor Ort und man kommt relaxter an. Aber auch die tollen Wanderungen in die umliegenden Berge haben uns sehr viel Freude bereitet. Besonders empfohlen sei hier das in der Nähe liegende Bergrestaurant Candalla. Wir haben selten einen schöneren Ort zum Verweilen gesehen.

Wir werden mit Sicherheit noch oft an die schönen Tage denken. Besten Dank und alles Gute an Roberto und sein "Team".
