luxury villa in private estate with heated pool (salt water) & air-conditioning
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Classic Italian villa decorated with such personal treasures you feel very special to be there.

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous atmosphere - cicadas in the air, breezy trees and deliscious salt water pool. Air con in all bedrooms is new and superb which is needed in the heat! Loved the privacy of the estate and yet 5 minutes from beautiful Camariore for supermarket, shops, gelato & coffee. Bathrooms new and beautifully appointed. Kitchen small but We catered for 10 over two weeks no problem. Lots of fabulous restaurants close by. Lots of different areas to have drinks and meals at home in shade and sun. Great proximity to Portofino or Florence day trip - 1.5 hrs drive. So close to best beach clubs at Forte Dei Marme

Amazing Villa Bernocco

  • 5 of 5

Two reviews from two sisters:

Number 1 - We booked villa Barnocco for 9 days to celebrate my husband’s birthday with friends and family. There were no reviews of this property available at the time of booking so we had to make our decision based on other factors. We’ve contacted the owner Allegra Donn and barraged her with questions and concerns. Every email and phone call was answered and all our requests accommodated without delays. Allegra is super accommodating, kind and knowledgeable. She was a pleasure to deal with!

Now, about the villa. It is a beautifully renovated typical Tuscan home with all modern conveniences. It is lovingly and elegantly decorated with period furniture, fully equipped kitchen complete with every imaginable utensil, serving dishes and cookware. There are amazing collection of books everywhere… and a huge selection of DVDs. All five bedrooms have individual AC units without which we wouldn’t have survived the heat. The beds were comfortable and linens were nice and clean.

The pool was a big plus to cool off from our day trips to Lucca, Forte dei Marmi, Florence, etc.

The umbrellas, lounge chairs and covers, including comfortable pillows were all brand new and super cozy.

There is a state of the art grill (Big Green Egg) purchased for us because we asked and charcoal provided.

The pool was being cleaned every night and lounge chairs and umbrellas placed for us every morning by the gardener.

Allegra helped us to arrange for a chef to prepare celebratory dinner one of the evenings and it was amazing!

We enjoyed cooking our own meals and having breakfasts every morning in the big dining room.

The location of the house was very convenient for the planned day trips, shopping and the seashore. We rented a sailboat from Viareggio which is only 20 min away and had a great time basking in the sun and watching dolphins playing around.

Great stay at Villa Bernocco! We would come back in a heartbeat and recommend it to all looking for a private villa in a serene setting.

Number 2 - Absolutely gorgeous property, new pool and impeccably redone old villa. Allegra has thought of every detail and provided us (a group of 9) with all the comforts of home.

Antique furnishings in combination with brand new bathroom appliances/air conditioners in every room, made for a very comfortable stay.

I would gladly recommend this property and hope to return here. Overall it was an excellent experience, thank you Allegra!

Well, what can we say...............our vacation were absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this was one of the most relaxing holidays we've had.The Villa is very beautiful, located in a calm area. Recently restored with so much care and attention to detail - a labor of love for Allegra. The pool and the garden are breathtaking beautiful and you can relax perfectly.

The owner Mrs Allegra is extremely helpful; she also gave us some really useful advice and ideas on places to visit and tips for excellent restaurants in the area of Forte Dei Marmi, Pisa, Lucca, Pietrasanta and Camaiore. The house offers also a huge collection of CD´s and the best DVD´s for example; The Pink Panther, Death on the nile, Breakfast at Tiffany´s.

We cannot recommend this house enough. Grazie Barbara&Roland!!

The advantages of this house is the total privacy, the landscape and the proximity to nature, yet the village is only ten minutes away on foot. It's also ideally placed for sightseeing excursions, beach outings , shopping in Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio. Its also close to Pietrasanta ( 6km away) the town where Michelangelo lived for two years in the 1500's to search for the perfect slab of Carrara marble for The David and La Pieta'. Henry Moore lived there part time as well as many contemporary sculptors.

The restaurants in the area are delicious. LORENZO in Forte dei Marmi is considered one of the best in Italy. IL MAITO and IL BISTROT are also excellent (always in Forte dei Marmi) and lunch at BAGNO BRUNO in summer is also a good recommendation on the beach in the day

In Pietrasanta: FILIPPO, IL POSTO, L'ENOTECA, though there are many very good street restaurants to choose from

In Viareggio its good to go to the darsena , beyond the port where there are several excellent fish restaurants , one after the other along the beachfront.
