About the property

House in Ceserano, Nr. Fivizzano in Province of Massa Carrara - Stunning Views

La Bella Vista is a classic traditional house completely made of stone located in the heart of Tuscany, close to 3 airports served by Ryan Air. The thick walls and tile and terrazzo floors keep the interior cool in summer and warm in winter. The accommodation consists of entrance foyer, kitchen, sitting room and dining room on the ground floor; three bedrooms (one with balcony), and bath on the first floor; bath (with power shower) and laundry room on the lower floor as well as a terrace and patio. The house, which has central heating and is available year-round, sleeps six and is comfortably furnished. Mountains, valleys and streams surround the area and the elegant beaches of Versilia (Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio) and the Italian Riviera, (Cinque Terre, Portofino) are less than an hour's drive away. A special swimming pool has recently been installed on the terraces of the house. Easy mountain walks begin from the village. Detailed information for excursions provided by proprietor.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are in love with Ceserano and the entire area. The beauty, the peace, and the warmth of the people . . . we will never forget.

Thomas & Alexandra, Gloucester, Mass USA

Lerici and the boat ride to the Cinque Terre; the outdoor markets in Aulla and Fivizzano; the marble caves at Carrara; and the unforgettable Medieval Fayre at Filetto. love, love, love from Laurie & Michael & family. (Bristol, UK)

Thank you. We found a week of heaven, and our favourite people, the Italians. The view, the food, the wine, the village, a trip to Florence and finally . . . the seaside. Every sense tantalised. You are blessed here, thanks for sharing. The Lewis Family, Luxembourg.

We feel honoured to have enjoyed a glorious week of activities and relaxation here in 'La Bella Vista'. In our opinion, Ceserano is the best and we will get our dates sorted for next year as soon as we get back to London (sigh). Miller Family, London NW6.

Your new pool is sensational, our family had a ball ! Bill
