Blissed out in Camaiore, comatose on coast

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a beautiful setting, at the end of a narrow road in the green hills behind Camaiore. As we arrived we found the house manager Victoria waiting for us on the extensive terracota tiled patio. She was most welcoming and showed us around explaining where everything was and how everything worked. The living room was pronounced charming and the kitchen the most well equiped we had evern seen (though still not sure why anyone would need 6 expresso pots)

After this everyone rushed to lay claim to one of the lovely clean light and airy bedroooms. As shutters in various rooms were thown open ,gasps of delight could be heard as people found they were either looking up into the mountains or down the valley to Camaiore and beyond to the sea. The inside of the house was declared delightful and stuffed to the gills with "old world charm"

As we gathered out on the huge patio set with table and chairs for outside dining and adorned with orange and lemon trees in outsize pots we made plans for the evening. My Italian speaking friend and myself were elected to go and find a takeaway pizzeria and wine down below in the town. We found both and after being both fed and watered went to our extremely comfortable beds and slept like babies.

The next day we made our 20 minute journey to the seaside where our delightful "Bagno" had been pre-booked, spent the day on the beach, swimming snoozing and reading and we returned to La Villa in the late evening after a lovely meal in Camaiore,. We sat on the patio and watched a fire work display going on somewhere in the valley, waited for the stars come out and then went happily to bed.

This was our routine more or less for the whole week. This was only vairied by a trip to Viareggio to "the best icecream shop in Italy" and to assorted restaurants at the sea and in the courntry. Oh and the morning we managed to lock ourselves out and Victoria had to come and rescue us (we were a little late getting to our deckchairs that day)

We could have gone to look at medieval churches, we could have gone to listen to opera at the Puccini festival, we could have gone into The Marble Mountains, to Lucca, to the Cinque Terre or done a thousand other things, all of which we intended to do. But, we didn't do any of these things because the house, the town, the sea all enchanted.

A perfect week for 5 busy stressed out women and one young boy

Would we go again, yes we most certainly would!

La Polletta Revisted

  • 5 of 5

De laatste week van juli verbleven wij met de kinderen en kleinkinderen in het Manor House van La Polletta in Camaiore, Toscane. Hartje zomer, dus behoorlijk warm, maar met een groot zwembad in de tuin was het bijna overbodig om naar zee te gaan.

Wij komen hier al jaren. Wat La Polletta namelijk bijzonder maakt is de ligging op een heuvel: het Manor House heeft een groot terras onder een prachtige pijnboom en biedt een wijds uitzicht op de bergen tot aan de zee van Camaiore. Het is er heerlijk toeven van 's ochtends vroeg tot 's avonds laat. Voor de boodschappen kun je terecht in het dorp onderaan de heuvel, waar je bij de plaatselijke slager, bakker of viswinkel of in de goed voorziene supermarkt heerlijke Italiaanse specialiteiten kunt kopen om zelf lekker mee te kokkerellen. Het typisch Toscaanse boerenhuis is smaakvol ingericht en goed onderhouden.

De sfeervolle woonkamer heeft bovendien een grote open haard,

wat het huis ook geschikt maakt voor het vóór- en náseizoen. De 4 slaapkamers van het Manor House op de eerste etage zijn al even gezellig ingericht en voorzien van 8 goede bedden, badgelegenheid en uitgebreid linnengoed. Vittoria, de housekeeper zorgt dat alles schoon is en ontvangt de gasten. Verder is het huis van alle gemakken voorzien: was- en vaatwasmachine, ijskast met vriezer, broodrooster, gasfornuis met oven, keukenmachines etc. Kom je om te genieten van de Italiaanse cultuur, dan is het huis een prima uitvalsplek voor Pisa, Livorno, Lucca, Sienna, Florence, Pistoia, Viareggio, Carrara, Pietrasanta, Cinque Terre etc. Voor de liefhebbers zijn er 2 chique

golfbanen in Versilia en Montecatini en natuurlijk is er de middellandse zee. Kortom: een plek om verliefd op te worden.

Erholung und Idylle pur zwischen Zitronen und Oliven

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten zu acht eine wunderbare Woche im Manor House. Mit vier Schlafzimmern und zwei voll ausgestatteten Bädern ist dieses Haus ausgezeichnet für einen Urlaub mit Freunden (so wie wir, zwei Familien mit je zwei Kindern) oder der großen Familie geeignet. Ich habe besonders die rustikale top ausgestattete Küche geliebt. Es hat Spaß gemacht am Kochplatz mit Marmorplatte "Spagetti a la Mama" zu kochen. Der kleine Kräutergarten und die Zitronenbäume liefern auch mal die ein oder andere Zutat. Die sehr geräumige Terrasse bietet alles für gemütliche Tage und Abende in der großen Runde. Und das bei einem Traumblick auf Natur die Stadt im Tal und das Mittelmeer in der Ferne. Der moderne große Pool sorgt für die oft nötige Abkühlung. Die Haushälterin sorgt täglich für einen aufgeräumten Gesamteindruck und bleibt doch fast unsichtbar dabei. Die Umgebung mutet sehr ursprünglich an und bietet viele Möglichkeiten die Toskana kennen zu lernen. Camaiore ist eine hübsche kleine Stadt mit ausgezeichneten Läden für italienische Spezialitäten. Wir würden gern ein zweites Mal Urlaub im Manor House machen.

House in Camaiore

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is located at the end of a small road on a hill. The house has four very large, and more importantly, very wonderful bedrooms, with beautiful colors. Upstairs there is a large bathroom with a toilet and a bath/shower. In addition, there is a separate toilet and downstairs there is another bathroom with toilet and a washing machine. The kitchen is very luxourious and it contains all the necessary equipment. The dining room as well as the living room are both very cosy, and there are plenty of books and even a television with digital signal. However, due to the lovely weather, we have not used the dining room and the living room. We had diner on the large terrace every day, and we used the barbecue a lot. The view from the terrace is really magnificent; one looks down on the town Camaiore and the sea. After a long and hot day on the beach, one can also have a lovely cold shower outside. On top of that, there is free Wi-Fi in the house.

The surroundings of Camaiore are very beautiful. We also visited quite some cities and towns, like Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, Lucca, Pisa and we went to the amazing city Firenze (Florence) by train, respectively. The beach can be reached by car in about twenty minutes.

We can strongly recommend you this house if you are looking for a cosy place to stay during your holidays. This area definitely gives a good representation of the real Italy and the real Italian people.

une vraie maison de famille !

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 2 familles (4 adultes et 4 ados) dans la maison jaune (82292): nous voulions avoir de l'espace pour avoir chacun son indépendance et visiter cette région. c'est une vraie demeure de caractère avec une vue magnifique depuis la terrasse (principale "pièce à vivre" en Italie!) La maison est très agréable à vivre avec ses chambres spacieuses ayant chacune son lavabo et son ventilateur ( tout à fait suffisant d'ailleurs pour dormir paisiblement ... pensez quand même à prendre un tue-moustique électrique !) la cuisine et la salle à manger sont superbement équipées ( vaisselles suffisantes sans avoir à faire tourner en permanence le lave vaisselle, plusieurs robots ...) ce qui est bien rare dans une location!

Pour arriver dans ce lieu a flanc de colline, il faut monter! j'ai lu des appréciations sur la route plus qu'étroite avant de partir, alors, oui, c'est étroit mais rien de téméraire toutefois !! et la location mérite le détour !

Pour les baignades, la plage gratuite se situe à 20 mn en voiture (au sud d Viareggio; juste après les constructions navales); rien d'exceptionnel mais bien agréable d'y piquer une tête après une journée de visite ! sinon, pour plus de confort, il faut payer les "bagnis",plus direct de la location.

Question visites, nous avons fait Lucca, Pise, les 5 terres (en prenant le bateau de Lerici impérativement, la Spezia est un gros port pas terrible et les 5 terres sont belles en arrivant par la mer!). Rien à dire, on en prend plein la vue de marbre blanc à Pise (d'ailleurs, vous pouvez aussi monter dans la montagne voir les carrières de marbre derrière Carrara) Lucca mérite également une visite pour ses ruelles et ses palais et nombreuses églises.

Quant à l'accueil de Victoria, la gouvernante, et de Stéfano, le propriétaire, il fut parfait ! (penser à imprimer la documentation que Stéfano nous envoie par mail sur les environs qui est vraiment bien pratique !).

la villa gialla

  • 4 of 5

.La maison spacieuse ,confortable et propre ., les chambres sont très grandes avec de bonnes literies .Il existe une 2è petite salle de bains au rdc qui comprend un wc et une douche.

La terrasse est très grande avec une belle vue sur l'environnement..L'accueil de la charmante gouvernante, Vittoria, est très cordial,celle - ci s'est montré très soucieuse de notre confort .

La seule chose qui étonne à l'arrivée concerne le cheminement d'accès depuis le village car il s'agit d'une petite route très étroite qui sinue en montant; il faut faire preuve de facilité de manoeuvre lorsque l'on croise d'autres véhicules mais cette route est peu fréquentée et l'on prend vite l'habitude .De plus les utilisateurs de cette voirie se montre très accomodant et nous facilite le passage.

La villa jaune possède son propre parking ( pour au moins 3 voitures) dont l'accès est privatif, il y a un portail automatisé en contre-bas qui clos la propriété.

Le bourg de Camaiore est très proche et l'on peut y descendre à pieds rapidement.Le centre piéton est très animé, typique d'une ville italienne.Je recommande entre autres la gelateria " mondo goloso" qui produit des glaces absolument fameuses!

Concernant les plages, celles du lido et de Viareggio étant très fréquentées, je conseille de parcourir environ 25 kms ( très rapidement par la 4 voie direction Pise, au - delà de Torre del lago) pour se rendre à la très belle plage libre de la marina di vecchiano, parking payant comme partout, mais beaucoup d'espace et très agréable . Pour conclure, je dirai que nous avons passé un exellent séjour dans la villa et je recommande cette location.

From the Owner

It was inherited in 2001.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Pisa 'Galileo Galilei' at 35 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Leghorn at 80 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Forte de Marmi at 30 Kilometres Nearest Train : Viareggio at 15 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Camaiore at 6 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : La Badia at 2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Lido di Camaiore at 10 Kilometres Car: necessary

Camaiore is a quiet and lazy old town of roman origin at the foots of the Apennines and marble mountains. Twenty minutes away from the fashionable beaches and shopping centers of Forte de Marmi and Viareggio. Many tourist attractions nearby: Pisa, Lucca, not far from Florence (60 minutes car drive), Pietrasanta, Portovenere and Lerici.

A preferred spot by artists, writers and film directors, as still unspoilt by mass tourism.

Off the beaten track Tuscany, Camaiore adds to its mediaeval churches, roman remains, proximity to important historic towns such as Lucca, Pietrasanta or Pisa, the vicinity to the sea. For a perfect and relaxing holiday. Many good restaurants in the area offer the visitor a taste of local Tuscan recipes and good wines. Excellent local food shops provide the traveller with the best of Italian groceries, wines and vegetables.
