Lovely house in a stunning location & v well cared for by Anna Maria
Great Tuscan Home Base
My friends and I rented this home for a week and had an amazing time. The owner was very friendly and recommended restaurants, showed us places nearby on a map, and gave a tour of the house. However when we arrived the owner had told us she was charging us extra if we went over a certain amount on electricity which was not stated in the house description. But we weren't going to let this ruin our vacation!
The house can be hard to find at first as the google maps location is a bit off. Be sure to ask specifics before arriving on how to get to the house as to avoid driving in circles.
This house offers a lot of facilities for a truly relaxing Tuscan experience. It can get very hot in August so hanging around the pool was great. We loved all of the delicious fruit trees in the yard and munched on what it had to offer every day. We made fresh pasta and pizza in the wood fired oven in the front of the house. Then we often had these delicious dinners outside. But beware of the mosquitoes! We also had some fresh eggs from the chicken coop!
Wifi was pretty slow, but better than nothing. There's plenty of sleeping space for everyone. There is a shared bathroom for 2 of the rooms that oddly had the toilet in the shower.
Loved how all of the bathing towels, pool towels and linens were included. There was also a washing machine so we always had plenty of clean clothes and linens.
Only downside was not being told in advance about paying for extra electricity used, but ultimately this was a beautiful home and helped us have what we envisioned as a Tuscan getaway!
Amazing Tuscan Paradise
I recently stayed at this home with my wife, our toddler and 4 more family members. The home was amazing. Comfortable, well taken care of, and absolutely beautiful. The property is just as spectacular and the hostess (Annamaria) could not have been nicer. Camiore is a nice, small Tuscan town that is a 5 minute drive. The house is about 30 minutes from Lucca, 75 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from the beautiful Lido di Camiore beaches. If you're looking for a wonderful Tuscan home this is your place!
We had a wonderful week long stay here in early August. The house is beautiful inside and out. Every detail is attended to. Anna Maria was very responsive in connecting us with a chef for a few nights of cooked meals as requested and she also was able to accommodate our needs for a baby cot, high chair and gate as we had two families; one with very small children. In addition to the above, there were games and books in the house; anything we needed for cooking/entertaining, floats and toys at the pool- it was really perfect.
We are Americans living in the UK and this was a special holiday where family joined us from the US. It was a beautiful setting & perfect environment for all our needs.
Beautiful home in a lovely location
We had a wonderful week at this home with our family of five. The pictures really don't do it justice and both the inside and outside of the home are beautiful. Bedrooms are spacious, kitchen is modern and well equipped, WIFI coverage is amazing and the pool area is like an oasis. The entire property is well thought out and very accommodating for guests. My children especially loved the chicken coop on the property and my husband loved the OFYR grill. There are two good restaurants within walking distance of the property and many more to be found 10 min away in Camaiore. The beach is also 15-20min away and we spent a lovely day at a local beach club. The small mountain towns nearby are not to be missed and there's so much to do in the area including beautiful hiking trails. Lucca is 30-40 min away and an easy drive. Wish would would have stayed another week. Annamaria is lovely and very easy to reach with any questions/ concerns
Absolutely charming Tuscan countryhouse
We visited Il Melograno in the last week of August 2016 and could not be more satisfied with the house and all the guidance that Anna Maria had for us. Our group of 10 fit perfectly to the house and there was enough space for the kids and adults. The house was perfect, and it had even more quality and own traditional style than in pictures. Clean, equipped and beautiful. The house has been restored with such a unique and detailed way. After reading the books in the house, we understood why. We loved to explore all the details of the interior, wallpapers and textiles. All the bedrooms had its own beautiful style, enough space and cabins. In sunny weeks, individual air conditioning in all rooms was great. Also the kitchen was very well equipped and we had several superb dinners with local ingredients. The best part, at least for the kids, was the pool by the olive trees. It did not bother us that there was couple of steps from the main house. But the pool was clean and big enough, and offered us and our 4 kids endless fun during the sunny week. The neighborhood of the house is very quiet and surrounded by the beautiful hills.
The hills, or mountains, close to the house offered us a lot of fun since we discovered marvelous trails for running and hiking. There is several +1000 m peaks close in Nocchi area. We loved also the small village of Nocchi as well as the restaurant less than 1 km away from the house. Since we had couple of cars, we visited Camaiore for groceries and eating out. The lido de Camaiore was also nearby and beach can be reached only in 15 minutes.
Nocchi is an old village on the Via Francigena, near Lucca. It was considered the holiday location for the Lucchese Aristrocracy. It is 3 kms away from the lively historical centre of Camaiore where many country fairs and theatre events take place during the year. There are many restaurants, bars, supermarkets and pharmacies. Daily excursions on foot or bicycle can be organised in the mountains and by the sea. Places within easy reach are Forte dei Marmi (15 kms away) offering great walks along the sea shore and shopping trips in the village. Pietrasanta (12 kms away), cultural and art centre with many sculptors visiting from all over the world. Lucca (25 kms away) beautiful medieval city surrounded by its ancient walls. Pisa (20 kms away) with its famous leaning Tower and well known “Piazza dei Miracoli”, theatres and concerts. Continuing towards the Tuscan countryside you can reach the region of Garfagnana, the cities of Barga, Florence, the Chianti region, Siena, San Gimignano and towards Liguria the world renown 5 Terre and Portofino. All these places are within easy reach.
