An Amazing Villa and host

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 we are/were incredibly happy with this Villla. The property offers everything you need and the host is committed to ensuring your happiness. The property has amazing views and the village is incredibly charming. The renovations that have been completed at the property have ensured high comfort for its guests.

The pool is big enough to cool off and the terrace is a great spot to lounge around or the kids to play.

Don't forget to bring your insect repellent as there are quite a few mosquitos (hardly the fault of the property though!). It is also a windy drive to Metato but nothing that 99% of drivers could not handle. There are windier and worst roads in Italy that is for sure!

Camaoire is a great little town only 7-10 minute drive to the bottom of the hill where there are some great restaurants and the locals are very friendly.

The Villa is in a great location to visit places like Lucca, Sienna, Firenze, and the coastline.

This is truly a gem of a property and one that we will be returning to!

What a great house with the best view

  • 4 of 5

Just Tuscany authentic beautiful and really a house for a family retreat. We spend our time in the garden in the shadows and cooled off in the small pool. About perfect. The owner was online available the whole time and offers so many tips for everything you might need to do.

Since the house is located about 15 min in car from groceryshops planning is nessesary. We love to cook and had to buy some kitchen supplies since the equipment was a little less than we are used to from other rentals. But we survived. Must add that the indoor deco was very authentic antique ans stylish. Clean and neat.

We also recommend to book a table at the bed and breakfast on top of the village. Enjoy enjoy :) from charlottenlund, Denmark

Une semaine parfaite dans un lieu magique avec un emplacement idéal!

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions venus en famille découvrir la Toscane et nous n'avons pas été déçus! La maison correspond en tous points aux photos, et c'est encore plus agréable de la découvrir en vrai! Piscine/jaccuzzi de taille idéale pour nos enfants (5 et 2 ans), tonnelle et transat plus qu'optimisés, point de vue à couper le souffle...tout y est! Attention cependant aux frelons et aux guêpes et prévoir de l'anti-moustique! Des bols seraient aussi plus adaptés pour le petit déjeuner.

La proximité de Pise et Florence est un vrai plus, les ballades à Lido di Camaiore ou les Candalla Waterfalls sont à faire. Je recommande plus que jamais!

Nous avons pensé à un livre d'or pour la maison mais nous n'avons rien trouvé, peut-être que nos successeurs prendront le relais?

Merci pour tout Madame Covani!

Ein schöner Urlaub in den Bergen von Camaiore.

  • 4 of 5

Die Beschreibung des Feriendomizils auf FEWO ist sehr korrekt. Wir reisten mit 4 Erwachsenen und einem Baby an. Die Absprache mit der Vermieterin war 1a und wir konnten das Ferienhaus unkompliziert übernehmen. Das Haus und der Garten waren so wie auf den Bildern zu sehen. Die Ausstattung und Geräte ebenso. Der Rasen war gemäht und der Pool ´gepflegt ! Die Pool Temperatur lag etwa bei ca. 24 Grad . Dies war unserem kleinen ein bisschen zu kalt. Somit kontaktierte ich die Vermietung und noch am selben Tag kam der Poolboy vorbei und hat die Heizung erhöht ! Die Lage ist herrlich in den Bergen, wobei man das Haus nur zu Fuß erreicht ! Von einem Parkplatz aus erreicht man das Haus über einen zwischen den Häusern steil führenden Weg. Die Kirche des Dorfes hat 4 Glocken und ist nicht weit entfernt ! Ebenso ist das Dorf Metato den Hunden sehr zugeneigt, welche in den Morgenstunden Aufmerksamkeit suchen. Eine ältere Dame wird ab und zu von Ihrer Familie besucht, welche über den gleichen Garten zu dieser zu gelangen. Die Betten im Nebenzimmer sind etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig aber dem Italienischen Flair angepasst.

Wir waren bis auf ein paar Kleinigkeiten sehr zufrieden.

Es fehlt an nichts...

  • 5 of 5

Besonders zu betonen ist die atemberaubende Kulisse und das modern-toskanische Ambiente vor allem im Haus

Das Haus ist bestens ausgestattet und äußerst gepflegt. Der Außenbereich ist eine Wucht, was bei diesem Urlaubsziel sicherlich im Vordergrund steht. Tipp: vorher mit der Bedienung eines Steinofens auseinandersetzen, die selbstgemachte Pizza belohnt einen dafür.

Einer Sache muss man sich bewusst sein: "in den Hügeln" bedeutet auch in den Hügeln. Der Ausblick macht dieses Manko aber voll und ganz wett.
