Beautiful house in Camaiore
The whole holiday from booking to making transport plans and eating on the first evening was a very good experience. Sonia provided details for airport transfer as we didn't want to hire a car and in fact provided the transport with her son for a very reasonable cost and included us stopping off at a supermarket for essential and heavy items. At the property we were met by the owners who showed us round the lovely house and explained how things worked. As a welcome gift they provided us with a selection of food and drink which was absolutely wonderful.
The house is airy and spacious with plenty of space to eat, read or simply relax if you want to be away from the lovely clean swimming pool where the younger members of our party spent lots of their time. The view in all directions of mountains was breathtaking.
A short walk into town had the choice of lots of places to eat and shops and supermarkets for anything else we needed. Our favourite place to eat was Tutto Pasta but lots of lovely other pizzerias were great value to be followed by gelato from Meri Poppins.
We took trips to Lucca and Candalla Falls which are both worth visiting.
In summary a lovely house in a great location.
Everything we wanted
What a wonderful week we had in Camaiore. The villa fully deseves its five star rating. The children spent a lot of the time in the pool which was an ideal size for them. The bedrooms were spacious and the fans came in very useful.
The fact the villa was in the village meant that shopping and eating out was an easy and pleasureably experience.
A family holiday to remember thanks to Villa Maria Giulia . Thankyou
I can't say enough positive remarks about our stay at this villa. There was plenty of room for 13 for us. Its a short walk to Camiore where the shopping and restaurants are so good. We had a great time cooking for ourselves some nights, as the fresh fruits and vegetables are abundant . The kitchen and outside table were perfect for our cooking class. The kids loved the pool, especially after a long day in Florence. The location makes day trip traveling pretty easy, although sometimes some of us elected to stay at the villa and enjoy the local walks and sights.We were quite comfortable.I'm sure there's many small charming towns in Italy, but I have to think Camiore is one of the best.
Charming Tuscan Gem
This delightful villa was the perfect place for our 3 generational family summer holiday. Chosen for its accommodation, pool and location close to Pisa and Lucca this period villa with its stunning mountain backdrop on the edge of the town of Camaiore lived up to all our expectations. Greeted by the owners on arrival, our limited Italian and English jointly allowed us to understand the intricacies of the Italian rubbish recycling system, electrics, alarms,Wi-fi, pool and electric gates with "Phone Sonia" as the default when something unexpected needed to be explained! The accommodation is perfectly arranged, south facing with 3 different outside terraces which caught the sun or shade depending on the time of day and the pool was in the sun continuously. A small building to the side of the villa contains a quiet retreat with seating, coffee and comfortable sofas for those looking to escape the main house for a hour or so. In through the main door and to your right is the larger living room with TV,satellite and DVD sofa chairs and table and doors out the East terrace - this was the children's den and retreat from the heat in the middle of the day. Also on the East side was our ground floor double bedroom - stunning mountain views out of the window and able to watch the sun rise from our bed. On the left of the hall is the smaller dining room which links into the kitchen. A double door leads out to the front terrace with 2 seats which proved a great vantage point to watch the antics in the pool. The well equipped kitchen had everything needed for our stay and a very large American style fridge freezer was put to good use. Leading off the kitchen through double doors was the West terrace with a large table, seating and built in barbecue where many happy evenings were spent after the kids went to bed! (The handy bottle bank is just the other side of the road) At the back of the house was our WC shower room and a utility room. Up the marble stairs and on the half landing was the single bedroom, ideal for the smallest family member and then upstairs were 4 large doubles - 1 with access to the 1st floor terrace. 2 bathrooms - 1 with bath completed the accommodation. Everything was well maintained and where appropriate in a period style. A short 5 min walk into Camaiore with its many bars and restaurants was ideal and a 20 min drive to Pisa or Lucca catered for all tastes. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
Wonderful Tuscan family holiday
Roberta, Alfredo and family provide a very warm welcome, even doing some shopping for us as we were arriving late in the evening. Villa Maria Giulia is immaculate, extremely roomy and comfortable with bags of Tuscan style and character. The pool and grounds are also very pleasant and make for a very enjoyable stay. If you are looking for a large Tuscan villa with beautiful scenery located in a quiet village (except for the church bells!) then look no further as you have just found it. Many thanks to Roberta, Alfredo and Sonia for your kindness and understanding and thank you for a wonderful family holiday.
Nice holiday but a little too much noise
The House was as expecteted lovely and Big for our family.
The place arround is making noise. There is noise from the cars on both sides of the House and there where a lot of carnoise. Is is also nemt to a kindergarden and also lot of noise.
It was very hot and we missede the aircon so next time we would rent a House with that.
But Nice House but because of the noise and no ac we would not rent it again.
