Terrific property, wonderful host
Annamaria's house is very well appointed and perfectly suited our group of friends. The bedrooms are well spaced, and could easily accommodate our mixed group (some couples, some singles, no kids). There are various common areas (inside and out), which gave a terrific sense of space (no-one felt crowded). The grounds are immaculate and the pool is wonderful - it gets the sun all day. Annamaria had various recommendations for local activities and restaurants, including a local chef (Romina) who came in to cook some superb meals for us. We ate all our meals outside, on a wonderful long table - either down by the pool or up at the house. The house is well situated to explore the local area - we went to Pisa, Lucca, Viareggio, Lido di Camaoire, Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi (by car) and also ventured to the Cinque Terre and Florence (in the train). However, we also spent a lot of time lounging around the house / by the glorious pool.
Anna Maria's home was spectacular. Everything was as advertised and the pool was even better than expected. We were eight, 2 families, with 2 girls and 2 boys ages 12-16. Everyone had plenty of space. Beds were very comfortable. It was extraordinarily warm during our visit so the air conditioning in the bedrooms at night was perfect, but during the day with the windows (screened) open and the breezes blowing it was very nice. Nocchi is a nice quiet place with a couple of good and family friendly restaurants. I would recommend heading up to Pieve for a night or 2. There are 2 good restaurants up that way, only 5 minute drive. Nice day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Cinque Terre, but always nice to come back to the house, swim, play cards, enjoy the music system at the pool, nap, etc. Would have liked to stay another week just to do nothing, but that will be for another time.
Without any reservations, I would recommend this for 2 families traveling together or even several couples.
Great location and beautiful villa in Tuscany!
I visited with family, friends and my daughter for 2 weeks. The gardens and ground are absolutely beautiful. Annamaria is a very attentive host and provided great recommendations for local Day trips, restaurants and a private chef to cook for us at the villa. I highly recommend staying here as it makes a perfect home base. You can’t go wrong.
There were floaties and everything you need for the pool as well for afternooon fun.
Beautiful villa, gardens and swimming pool.
We had a great holiday and spent much of the time at the beautiful pool. The villa was very clean and comfortable. Only down side was big electricity bill to be paid on checkout even though we hadn’t used air conditioning or heating.
Lovely house in a stunning location & v well cared for by Anna Maria
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!
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.
