Hosted by MartinAsk a question
I, Martin, am English, originally from Dorset and Giusy is Italian, from Solofra. We met whilst working in the Superyacht industry, I as Captain and Giusy as Purser, on large private and charter yachts. We bought the property in 2001 and set about restoring it over a six year period, the property having been abandoned for forty years. We live on site in the farm house and are on hand to assist in any way if required, we do however always respect the privacy of our guests..we are on hand should you need us, but otherwise leave you to yourselves. Our experience of working on Superyachts gives us the experience to offer you a excellent service in a very well maintained property.

Why Martin chose Massarosa
The rental house is part of a traditional Tuscan podere. It is set in the lush green hills above the village of Stiava, seven kilometres from the coast. The house has been restored to the highest standards and is equipped with all amenities including air conditioning in the bedrooms and full underfloor heating during the cooler months. There is a swimming pool of 15 m x 6 m, sited 8 metres from the rental house that guests are free to use at all times. in the summer months the temperature of the pool is usually around 28c to 31c. The property extends to 9 hectares ( 22 acres ), and guests are free to go where they wish. On the property we breed alpaca, and usually have between 25 and 30 animals at any one time. The alpaca are usually a big hit with children, who often like to give a hand feeding them in the mornings. We also have two very friendly dogs and several cats.
What makes this farmhouse unique
The location of the property is it’s greatest benefit, and the one that makes it particularly attractive. When at the property, you feel as if you are miles from anywhere because of it’s seclusion. In fact, it is just a five minute walk down to the village with all its amenities and only 12 minutes by car to the seaside town of Viareggio. The property is accessed from the village by a private road of 750 metres, has no immediate neighbours, the nearest other house is 500 metres away and the nearest public road is 1 kilometre away. If you are looking for a peaceful and tranquil place for your holiday, this is as good as you will find. Should you on the other hand, wish to enjoy good restaurants and fashionable bars, the area has plenty. Pietrasanta, Camiore, Forte di Marmi, Viareggio and Marina di Camiore have them in abundance. There are also many excellent tavernas up in the hills. For day trips, the ancient walled city of Lucca is only 25 minutes away, Firenze 1 hour and Pisa, with it’s airport 30 minutes. Versilia as the costal area of Tuscany is called, is a wonderful area of long sandy beaches and pine groves, yet only 10 kilometres inland there are majestic mountains, famous for their marble, towering to over 1,800 metres. The area offers a host of things to do, and almost every activity is catered for. If you have any questions, just call us and ask.
