Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house for 2 persons. Renovated (2015) and very comfortable. Kitchen, bathroom, bed, all perfect. Shower is a bit small but with nice stream. Fly screens in all windows, so you can keep windows open for ventilation.

The terrace is also comfortable with light, nice chairs and a glass roof. Only thing is that we had some inconvenience from big hornets in the evening that fly to the lighbulb. Not harmful or agressive, but not annoying.

We used the stone bbq several times to make pizza and it is great to do and very nice taste.

You could hear some chatting from the other part of the house that is also available for rent for families. We didn't find it annoying.

Not far away from nice touristic places to visit ( Florence, Lucca). Pietrasanta is also a very nice village. Almost the whole beach in the neighbourhood is paid beach. Only a small part is for free. For us this was no problem.

Recommended!

Das Haus ist ein Traum

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wirklich ein Traum. So haben wir uns ein landestypisches / typisch toskanisches Haus vorgestellt, und es sieht auch wie auf den Fotos aus. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet und hat alles was man braucht, u.a. auch Sonnenschirme für den Strand.

Von der Terrasse aus hat man einen tollen Ausblick bis hin zum Meer, es ist sehr ruhig und außer geschätzt tausenden Grillen und hin und wieder ein vorbeifahrendes Auto hat man kaum etwas gehört. Im Garten stehen Olivenbäume (leider waren die Oliven noch nicht reif als wir dort waren) und ein Feigenbaum - die Feigen waren richtig lecker :-) Die Sonne scheint den ganzen Tag auf die Terrasse und verschwindet erst abends gegen 19 Uhr hinter dem Berg. Dann sind allerdings auch sofort zig Stechmücken da. Trotz Insektenschutz an den Fenstern hatten wir etliche Stechmücken im Haus und waren nach 2 Tagen bereits total zerstochen. Trotzdem konnte man abends ganz gut auf der Terrasse sitzen - dank einer Art Räucherstäbchen gegen Moskitos, die bereits im Haus vorhanden waren.

Die erwähnte Treppe zum Haus ist tatsächlich nicht zu unterschätzen, sie ist recht steil, aber es ist ok. Das Gepäck wird mit einem kleinen Lastenaufzug hoch- und runter transportiert. Neben der Treppe befindet sich ein kleiner Wasserfall.

Zum Strand sind es mit dem Auto ca. 15 Minuten. Allerdings gibt es nur einen freien Strand dort, der Rest ist zugebaut mit Beach Clubs, für die man (im Sommer) mind. 40€ für 2 Liegen + 1 Sonnenschirm bezahlt.

Die Vermieter Lorella und Fabio sind fantastisch! Sie haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen, hatten eine Menge Tipps für uns, und sie sind sehr hilfsbereit. Sie haben uns in einer Notsituation sehr geholfen - ohne sie wären wir dort echt aufgeschmissen gewesen. An dieser Stelle nochmal: Grazie mille!!!

Hier würden wir jederzeit wieder Urlaub machen :-)

Assolutamente Consigliato!!!

  • 5 of 5

Il soggiorno è stato breve ma senza dubbio ottimo! Veramente una bella casa, molto particolare nella struttura e nell'arredamento con grazioso giardino ben curato con vista mare, ideale per un completo relax. Abbiamo trovato la casa pulita e in perfetto ordine con TV, wi-fi, cucina, frigorifero e microonde a disposizione. Siamo stati accolti cordialmente, con disponibilità e massima gentilezza. Il posto è tranquillissimo, ma a pochi minuti dai centri abitati e da luoghi turistici conosciuti. Struttura consigliata per chi vuole essere a due passi dal mare ma in un contesto tranquillo e riservato.

Mooi uitzicht

  • 4 of 5

Fijn, compact huis met een heerlijk terras. Bij aankomst een warm onthaal door Liorella. Erg prettig is het terras met overkapping waardoor je ook met regen nog buiten kunt zitten. De zee is dichtbij en ook leuke plaatsen zoals Lucca en Portovenere zijn goed te bereiken en geschikt voor een dagje weg.

Empfehlenswert mit kleinen Mängeln

  • 4 of 5

Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet , alles da was man braucht ! Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt . Ein Stern Abzug für den TV -Empfang . Trotz Smart TV nur einen deutschen Sender !!!! Kein Netzwerk am TV eingebunden, obwohl WLAN vorhanden ist . Auch nach Nachfrage nicht möglich . Hätte man sich den Smart TV sparen können . 😂򐠠

Ansonsten ist die Lage des Hauses nur für Gäste mit Auto zu empfehlen. Keine Möglichkeit mit einem Hund in den Wald zu gehen , keine Wege vorhanden nur Straßen ! Leider geht die Sonne schon nachmittags hinter einem Berg unter . Also nachmittags keine Sonne auf der Terrasse. Die beschriebene Treppe ist nicht zu unterschätzen ! Alles in allem aber trotzdem zu empfehlen!

Perfekt für Erholung und Ausflüge

  • 5 of 5

Die Fewo entsprach voll unseren Erwartungen. Sie ist sauber, komfortabel und komplett ausgestattet.

Die freundlichen Vermieter haben uns sehr gut betreut. Es gab viele Hinweise und Empfehlungen sowie bei Bedarf rasche Unterstützung.

Die Wohnung liegt verkehrsgünstig sowohl für Touren in die Alpi Apuane als auch für Ausflüge in umliegende Städte (besonders zu empfehlen ist Lucca).

Wir kommen gern wieder.
