Camaiore is one of those areas in Tuscany that still has to be discovered by mass tourism. Our houses are part of what once used to be a farm with a 'Manor' house. We usually spent our summer holidays there. Aunt Ludovica slowly transformed the houses to be rented out. We inherited La Polletta in 2001. And we continue what she started out. The town of Camaiore is downhill 10 minutes walking distance.

Very nice Tuscan original

  • 4 of 5

This typical Tuscan house is an ideal place for a two-person holiday. Short distances to the beach, the hills and the infrastructure (supermarket, shops and restaurants). Loacated halfway up a hill and within a great landscape, the place itself is cared for with much love and effort.

The interior is basic and sufficient. Don't expect any high tech or working air conditions but you won't miss it. If you're looking for a neat and silent place to relax and a home base for city trips to Lucca, Florence or Pisa: this is exactly what you want.

Klein, aber fein und noch etwas besser!

  • 5 of 5

Nachdem wir bereits schon mehrfach ein anderes Haus der Vermieter in Quattro Castella zur vollsten Zufriedenheit genutzt haben, waren wir auch nach unserem ersten Besuch des La Polletta Anwesens mit dem Il Metato in Camaiore sehr zufrieden - und sind es nun mit dem etwas besser teureren aber auch besser (u.a. mit Klimaanlage!) ausgestatteten Nachbarhäuschen Il Stallino gewesen.

Ausgestattet mit einer großzügig angelegten Wohnküche und der über eine im Vergleich zum Il Metato weit bequemeren Treppe, die zu Schlafzimmer und Bad führt, macht das Haus für 2 Personen auch in seinem Inneren den Aufenthalt zu einem Vergnügen. Gerade im Hochsommer! Denn die Hausfront ist nahezu fensterlos, so dass die Sonnenhitze keine Chance hat - und die Klimaanlage im Schlafbereich tut da ihr Übriges.

Aber im Sommer hält man sich ja sowieso vor allem entweder auf der ebenfalls sehr großzügigen und mit komfortablen Liegestühlen ausgestatteten Terasse inkl. Außendusche auf - oder in und an dem wunderbaren Salzwasserpool (12x6m). Terasse wie Pool erlauben zudem einen herrlichen Ausblick auf die Hügellandschaft drumherum. Überhaupt ist das ganze Anwesen sehr gepflegt und man wird von den Vermietern wie auch der allseits präsenten Vittoria sehr gut versorgt.

Eigentlich sollte man das Häuschen gar nicht so sehr bewerben, damit einem der nächste Aufenthalt nicht durch allzu viele andere Gäste streitig gemacht werden kann ...

Cadre, Logement, équipement et service parfait

  • 5 of 5

Très bon séjour à La Poletta ou nous n'avons pas eu de mauvaise surprise. Le descriptif correspond parfaitement à ce que nous avons trouvé sur place.

Endroit très calme sur les hauteur de Camaiore.

Totale indépendance pour les 4/5 logements de la résidence. Une belle terrasse sans vis a vis pour profiter du beau temps du matin au soir !

Logement très bien équipé avec drops, linge de toilette, cuisine très bien équipée

Superbe piscine sans chlore et très bien entretenue.

Parfait pour les enfants qui peuvent évoluer seul dans le domaine sans aucun risque.

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.

Can be a truly full and enjoyable holiday. Camaiore is the only place that can offer you relax on hot sandy beaches , and good walks up the hills around from which regenerate yourself with gorgeous views (itineraries are supplied with our guide book) . And all this is the range of only 10 kilometers. Yes because the hot sandy beaches and the refreshing shores of the Tirrenean are just 8 kilometers away, while the Monte Gabberi (1.100 meters) or the Monte Matanna (1.300 meters) are just around the corner. And after all that excersise, in the evenings, on the terrace, you can relax, enjoying a drink and the view, follow up your mail on the Internet or the news on the satellite TV. Furthermore, Camaiore offers you the opportunity to reach Pisa, Lucca, Porto Venere in no more than a 60 minute car drive (Porto Venere the furthermost) as Pisa and Lucca are reachable in no more than 30 .
