Gorgeous villa in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at 'La Torretta' and only have good things to say about the place. It was a beautiful villa and very well-equipped. Lucio and Paola (the hosts) were extremely welcoming and provided everything we needed, like a high chair and baby bath, on request. There was also a bottle of wine and fruit basket waiting for us on arrival which was a very thoughtful touch.

The villa is really well located for visiting places like Lucca, Florence and Siena for those warning to explore the area. However, it is also a lovely base to spend time in and worth making use of the great BBQ facilities and gorgeous pool.

We would definitely consider coming back again and possibly renting both villas with a group of friends or family.

Thanks again Lucio and Paola.

Tuscan Beauty

  • 5 of 5

It has been five months since our vacation in Camaiore and I am still dreaming about our peaceful and relaxing stay at La Stalleta. I loved everything about it. The house is set up in the hills among olive trees and flowers. We spent most of our time outside - there are two verandas or terraces - where we read books, drank wine, and enjoyed dining al fresco. My two teenage sons especially enjoyed the pool and the Internet access, even at the pool garden area. The house, itself, is charming and provided for all of our needs. It is well-maintained and updated with two nice bathrooms (with good water pressure). My favorite room in the house was the master bedroom - the original Tuscan windows let in lots of sunlight and moonlight and the bed was so comfortable - the most peaceful sleeping we've ever had. The location is also very good. Even though you are up in the hills, we could walk to a family pizza restaurant, where we had the best pizza ever. We took day trips to Lucca, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Florence, and San Gimignano. There is also a beach close by. However, what made Villa Gaia so special were its owners, Paola and Lucio. They were very welcoming and made us feel at home. They lived only two minutes away and were available if we ever needed anything or had questions. We look forward to returning some day soon.

Toller Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir (zwei Erwachsene, zwei 17jährige Teenies) haben in der Villa Stalletta einen tollen, viel zu kurzen Urlaub verbracht (da nur 1 Woche) - das Haus war sehr schön im Toskanischen Stil mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und sauber. Küche war gut (Gasherd) und mit viel Geschirr für 4 Personen eingerichtet - einzig die Pfannen könnten mal erneuert werden. Es standen Gewürze und Olivenöl, Spülmaschinentabs bereit. Außerdem ein Obstkorb und eine Flasche leckerer Rotwein als kleiner Willkommensgruß.

Sehr genossen haben wir die beiden überdachten Veranden (1 x mit Esstisch und 1 x mit Loungemöbeln) - wir haben die Mahlzeiten im Freien eingenommen (Wetter war Ende Juni sehr schön und warm) und alle Abende draußen verbracht. Die beiden Schlafzimmer und das obere Bad sind sehr hübsch eingerichtet; das 2. Bad zweckmäßig (Dusche, Waschbecken, WC) - aber überaus praktisch, da im Erdgeschoss. Der Zugang zum Garten des einen Schlafzimmers (wie im Text beschrieben) wird nicht mehr genutzt - ist aber keinesfalls störend; (das Bett hier ist für Etagen sind über eine enge Stahlwendeltreppe verbunden - eventuell nicht geeignet für kleine Kinder und ältere oder eingeschränkte Personen. Der Garten ist toll angelegt (mediterrane Pflanzen, Olivenbäume) und es ist sehr ruhig. Die beiden Ferienhäuser sind so angelegt, das man kaum Sicht- oder Hörkontakt hat - also überhaupt kein Problem, dass es noch ein zweites Feriendomizil auf dem Grundstück gibt. Das Highlight war der große, schön angelegte Pool - von ca. 1,2 mtr bis ca. 2,30 an der tiefsten Stelle mit ausreichend Liegestühlen und Sonnenschirmen zum Chilen. Das leicht gesalzene Wasser ist sehr angenehm und der Pool war sehr sauber - auf Nachfrage beim Vermieter (wegen einiger Blätter und Insekten zur Wochenmitte im Pool) wurde Luco sofort aktiv und reinigte den Pool).

Nochmal ein großes Dankeschön an die Vermieter, die wirklich sehr nett und bemüht sind und für jede Frage ein offenes Ohr hatten (Ausflugstipps, Wegbeschreibung, Parken mit Grundstück mit unserem Transporter - die Anfahrt zum Objekt war am Anfang bei den engen Gässchen in dem Wohngebiet ein kleines Abenteuer ;-).

Meine kleinen Anmerkungen sind nicht als Kritik sondern als Anregungen gedacht - wir bewerten mit 5 Sternen und würden jederzeit gerne wieder buchen.

Rundum wunderbar

  • 5 of 5

Vom ersten Kontakt bis zum Abschied einfach herzlich. Die Beschreibung des Objektes durch Text und Bilder wurde von der Realität noch übertroffen. Das Paradies, war mein erster Gedanke als ich vor dem Haus aus dem Wagen stieg.

Garten, Haus, Pool und die Gastgeber - alles strahlt eine liebevoll, ruhige Atmosphäre aus. Wir haben zu dritt eine ausgesprochen schöne Toskana-Woche erlebt. Danke!

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné une semaine en famille et avons été enchantés. L'endroit est un havre de paix. Idéal pour se reposer mais également très bien situé pour visiter cette partie de la Toscane : Lucca, Pise, Fonte dei Marmi ..

Nous avons été très sensibles à l'authenticité de ce lieu. La villa est décorée avec beaucoup de goût. Les lits sont très confortables et la cuisine très bien équipée. Le jardin et la piscine sont idéals pour se reposer. Les propriétaires sont des personnes charmantes et très attentionnées. Je vous conseille le petit restaurant "Cera una volta" à 800 mètres de la villa. Il est d'un très bon rapport qualité prix.

En deux mots, à recommander ...

Ein Paradies!

  • 5 of 5

Mittlerweile sind wir fast 2 Monate aus unserem Urlaub in Camaiore zurück. Noch nie hatten wir einen sooo schönen Urlaub! Wir waren mit unseren 3 Söhnen (6, 4 und 1 Jahr alt) im "la staletta" Haus für 2 Wochen. Das Haus ist sehr sehr schön eingerichtet und es fehlt wirklich an nichts! Wie hier bereits schon beschreiben, es ist alles noch viel schöner als dargestellt. Jeden Abend haben wir auf einer der beiden Terassen den Abend gemütlich ausklingen lassen, den guten Wein genossen, barbecue (super Grill vor Ort) gehabt etc. Tagsüber kann man wunderbar in Ruhe am Pool entspannen, oder man macht einen Ausflug zu den vielen tollen Städten in der Umgebung (Lucca, Pisa, Florenz etc.) Das Meer erreicht man in 10-15min mit dem Auto. Paola und Lucio haben auch immer tolle Tipps für Ausflüge, Restaurants usw. Die beiden sind echt ein Segen und haben sich immer sehr viel Mühe gegeben dass WIRKLICH ALLES perfekt ist. Danke an dieser Stelle nochmal! Es war mehr als perfekt und wir kommen gerne wieder! Am liebsten SOFORT!!! Und für immer! Das andere Haus ist übrigens auch sehr schön, wir durften mal schauen...:-) Trotzdem ist die privatsphäre gewahrt für jeden - auch durch die wunderschönen bepflanzungen...
