Villa Giola-pedona

  • 5 of 5

The villa is gorgeous. The area is stunning and the manager is friendly, helpful and professional.

We had one week exploring the villa and the area and will definately return in the future.

Osteria Candela and the restaurant at the top of the hill in Pedona are a must if you want to eat Tuscany on a plate. The meat ragu is the best I have ever tasted.

Thank you Claudia. We will meet again. 5 Star service!

Villa in Olive Grove

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a delightful week at Villa Le Monache. The house is charming with hundreds of interesting objects filling every corner. From various points in the garden there are views through the mature olive trees down to Camaiore and up to the mountains (wear plenty of mozzie spray outside though!). The road by the house leads up to the hill-top village of Pedona which we would recommend visiting for the very friendly restaurant with panoramic views.

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung, großes Grundstück

  • 5 of 5

Haus und Grundstück lassen nichts zu wünschen übrig. Unser Hund fand auf dem Grundstück genügend Auslauf und auch er fühlte sich offenbar sehr wohl. Es ist alles sauber und sehr nett eingerichtet. Claudia ist freundlich, hilfsbereit und gibt gern Ausflugtipps. Wir haben den Urlaub wirklich genossen, leider war es mit teilweise bis zu 40 Grad viel zu warm. Strand war also angesagt und der war erfahrbar und neben den Privatstränden gibt es auch kostenlose Bademöglichkeiten in Viareggio. Der Ort scheint aber die beste Zeit hinter sich zu haben, es gibt aber auch andere Ausflugsziele (Lucca ist absolutes Muss)

Danke für die schönen Tage und schöne Grüße an Claudia
