About Riccardo Fanciulli

I am 44 years old.. clearly I didn't purchase this house in 1897 :)

This is my family home. I have lived and worked in several countries, among which: France, USA, Germany, The Netherlands.

I grew up in Viareggio and was born not 10km from Casa Bernardini.

Riccardo Fanciulli purchased this house in 1897

Why Riccardo Fanciulli chose Viareggio

I grew up in this house and my family has owned and lived in this house for three generations.

But hey! make no mistakes, it's been fully renovated in 2012 and I make improvements to it every year!

It's in top shape :-)

What makes this house unique

Location location location, and...

sitting outside sipping a cold beer under the palm tree , and... sleeping in the cool with the remote-controlled air conditioning system in every bedroom and in the living room.

Elegance, location, a little hidden garden (where you can drink a beer at the end of the day with your loved ones), comfort (have you seen the shower? did I mention the remote-controlled top quality air conditioning or the large flat screen?)

Another great advantage? You WON'T need a car, even if you intend to do some serious sightseeing, just walk up o the bus station some 800 m away and in an hr you're in Florence, in 20 min in Lucca. Want to take the ferry to Cinque Terre? Just walk up to the port (a 15 min walk?.. no, take it easy and have an ice cream along the way and take 20 minutes :)

"Our vacation in Viareggi...

  • 5 of 5

"Our vacation in Viareggio in August-September 2012 was amazing! The Ponete appartment is situated 5-minute away (by foot) from sea and all the shops. It''s a perfect place because the first line where all the shops and restuarants are open up to 00.00 is too noisy to live. So we spent about 5 minutes to go there but we lived and slept in the calm and area.

The appartment is equiped witn everything you could need (coffemachine,washing machine,towels,all the dishes and etc.). You can find an amazing open-air terrase on the second floor.

And the most important thing for us was an owner''s attitude. Carlo kindly asked for every question about the appartment in 15 minute by e-mail and sent the detailed instructions about the appartment. There we could find all the places around (banks,supermarkets, private and public beaches and etc,),equipement, parking, check-out and etc.. Also we always had a contact person - Suren. She met us when we arrived, explained averything, helped us with a parking and was always availble to contact during our stay.

I do recommend this appartment for 4-5 persons who are searching for the great vacation in Toscane!

  • 5 of 5

"We had a fabulous holiday in Viareggio and the Ponente was perfect for us. It has been finished to a very high standard and you get a real sense of it having been a family home. I felt I was on holiday in Italy in a proper Italian house and not a holiday let.

It''s a great house and we loved it - fabulous shower which I must mention and the paintings really added to the homely feeling.

Could I just say that Suren was really great and while we only needed to call on her once, I found her extremely pleasant and friendly."

Appartement pas pratique

Lave vaisselle ne fonctionne pas

Terrasse trop petite et il faut tout monter pour un déjeuner ou autre

Inconvénient pour se garer

Problème d électricité

Trie des déchets trop fastidieux

Demande un surplus pour le clim alors que c'est compris dans le contrat

Heerlijke vakantie gehad met onze 4 kinderen. Echt Italiaans huis in een rustige straat, 50m van alle voorzieningen en 300m van het strand. Beter kan niet!!

erg schoon en goed verzorgd, met een heerlijk dakterras, niet groot maar prima voor zes mensen. contact met eigenaar en contactpersoon in Via Reggio meer dan uitstekend. De moeite waard, volgend weer!
