Villa Giola-pedona

  • 5 of 5

The villa is gorgeous. The area is stunning and the manager is friendly, helpful and professional.

We had one week exploring the villa and the area and will definately return in the future.

Osteria Candela and the restaurant at the top of the hill in Pedona are a must if you want to eat Tuscany on a plate. The meat ragu is the best I have ever tasted.

Thank you Claudia. We will meet again. 5 Star service!

Villa in Olive Grove

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a delightful week at Villa Le Monache. The house is charming with hundreds of interesting objects filling every corner. From various points in the garden there are views through the mature olive trees down to Camaiore and up to the mountains (wear plenty of mozzie spray outside though!). The road by the house leads up to the hill-top village of Pedona which we would recommend visiting for the very friendly restaurant with panoramic views.

Der Aufenthalt in diesem schönen großen Haus, war sehr angenehm. Es war alles da, was man braucht. Der Empfang durch die Verwalterin Claudia war sehr herzlich, sie stand uns jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, besonders wertvoll waren ihre Empfehlungen für Restaurants, Strände und Umgebung. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.

Beste Grüße Fam. Frank

Huset er i 3 etager, smukt restaureret, autentisk i traditionel toscansk stil.

  • 4 of 5

Fin service og hjælpsomhed fra Claudia, Homeaway.

Smuk beliggenhed i olivenlund, højtbeliggende på bjergtop.

Smuk have med mange siddemuligheder, grill, bordtennisbord og andet "legetøj".

Camaiore er meget centralt beliggende for ture rundt i Toscana.

Vi var 2x2 gæster, soveværelser + 1 badeværelse på 3. etage, + 1 badeværelse på nederste etage.

Der var ikke tryk nok på vandet til 3 etage, når der blev brugt vand i køkken.

I Danmark aflæser vi forbrug, når gæsterne ankommer. Homeaway aflæser, når der bliver sat varme på huset, i dette tilfælde efter vinteren.

Konklusion : Vi havde et fint ophold, kan meget anbefales, også til gæster med større børn.

Séjour paisible et charmeur

  • 5 of 5

Séjour très agréable dans cette belle bâtisse.

Mention spéciale pour la propriété en espaliers plantés de ses oliviers, ainsi qu'à la petite salle de jeu de la maison très originale.

Un grand merci pour Claudia et ses conseils éclairés tant gastronomiques que géographiques.
