We were allowed to spend a week in this great house during the Pentecost holidays! We were welcomed very warmly by Lorella and her husband Fabio and shown around the house, which is decorated very tastefully. The kitchen is also equipped so that you can cook excellently in it! We had never had such a clean accommodation before! Lorella also gave us great tips for excursions right away! Pisa and Lucca are easy to reach from here. The sea was also very clean and there is a public beach very close by. The lizards in the lovingly designed garden were the highlight for our children. Our landlords were also helpful when we left! We would like to thank you very much for the nice vacation with you!!!

Beautiful and very clean house with large garden.
The pictures and description of the house are a perfect match, it is beautifully decorated and very clean. We stayed here in May with our dog and felt very comfortable all around. There were enough cups, plates, and utensils available, so we didn't have to run the dishwasher after every meal. We didn't miss anything else either. Upon arrival, the hosts are waiting for you and help to bring the luggage to the house using a freight elevator and give useful tips. Thanks to Lorella and Fabio. The car parks at the bottom of the street, and you reach the house via a short, steep path. You can make yourself comfortable in the garden under an olive tree; there are sun loungers and a beautiful seating area with a view of the sea. The garden of the holiday home Ortensia is not fenced but spacious. You won't notice anything from the guests of the holiday home Biancospino, as the two apartments are separated by a fence or the house. A small shop is nearby, offering bread rolls. There is also a pizzeria and a gelateria further down in the village, both simply furnished but highly recommended. The sea is just a few minutes' drive away, and there is also a free beach where you can bathe with your dog. We did hikes in the surrounding area, for example, from Seravezza, Azzano, or Levigliani.

We will be happy to come back!
We stayed in this beautiful house as a family of four. We really liked it very much. It was very clean and well maintained and really plenty of space for everyone. There were plenty of towels on site and also a change of bed linen. The bathrooms were also very comfortable as were the bedrooms. The garden was lovingly landscaped as was the whole house itself. It was reached by a relatively steep staircase which you quickly got used to. There was a goods lift for luggage. The landlady and her family all helped us with our luggage on arrival, so it was an incredibly pleasant arrival for us. In general, the landlady is very friendly and nice and was always immediately approachable for us. As a family, we were missing a washing machine on site, but this problem was easy to solve as there are several launderettes in the vicinity
As for the location of the house, it is wonderfully situated in the mountains in a residential area. Far away from the tourist centre. There are many good restaurants nearby and some are even within walking distance. If you are planning a beach holiday, you should plan on taking the car. The beaches in the vicinity are beach resorts that have to be rented. To get to the free beaches, you should plan on a 30-minute drive. But it is well worth it. Tours through the surrounding mountains are also highly recommended as the local scenery is simply breathtaking and very central. There are plenty of shopping facilities in the immediate vicinity (approx. 5-10 minutes)
We enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful property very much and would gladly come again, despite the longer trips to the beach.

La vacanza nel bosco lontano dal caos
Il posto ideale per staccare dallo stress quotidiano. Posto incantevole, appartamento ben curato e attrezzato di tutto, il giardino incantevole è alquanto affascinanante grazie anche al ruscello che costeggia l’appartamento.
Ideale per chi ama il verde e la natura
