LOVELY COUNTRYSIDE RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed 2 lovely weeks at Le Bicocche in July/August 2012 with our 2 children aged 10 and 8. The property is located just outside the town of Camaiore, on the way to Montemagno. It is within easy reach of Viareggio for the beach (about 15 mins by car) and Lucca (half an hour by car). Florence is around 100km away - the journey takes around one and a half hours by car.

The property is situated in extensive, lovely gardens, which Mr Giannini, the owner, keeps immaculate. Mr Giannini was on hand whenever we needed him, though as we hardly speak any Italian and he hardly speaks any English, our opportunity to chat was limited. However, Mr Giannini is charming and I am sure that if you have conversational Italian, he would be a mine of useful information about the area. As it was, he was kind and helpful and pressed some very nice bottles of wine on us when he passed us dining in the garden once or twice.

The swimming pool is a little way from the house, and is secluded so is perfectly private. The pool does have a deeper end and a shallower end, though an adult can stand up throughout, so it is not suitable for diving or jumping in. The pool area was kept clean and tidy throughout our stay.

There are a few details that are not clear from the property listing. The property available for rental is in fact a self-contained apartment in the loft of the main house; Mr and Mrs Giannini live in the 2 floors below. To access the apartment, you have to go up 3 flights of stairs, which I imagine would be tiresome with a child much younger than age 4. The apartment is cosy and pleasant, though fairly basically equipped. A kettle would be useful, as would a toaster. It was very hot when we were there (25 degrees celsius at night) so we used the air conditioning each night from 10pm-5am. As a result, our electricity costs were 4 times those which had been anticipated prior to our stay, though obviously if you don't use the air conditioning to any significant extent, this is not an issue.

Overall we loved our relaxing holiday and it was fantastic to enjoy the attractive gardens and pool, and enjoy tasty, inexpensive meals at the nearby Le Meraviglie and other restaurants.

EMPFEHLENSWERT!

  • 4 of 5
Idyllisches Haus mit sehr schönem, grossen, gepflegten Garten.
Die Bezeichnung 'Haus' für die Suche nach einem geeigneten Feriendomizil ist jedoch ein wenig irreführend, das es sich lediglich um eine Wohnung handelt, die nur mittels einer steilen Treppe erreichbar ist (Wohnung befindet sich unter dem Dach).

Sehr saubere, schöne Wohnung, Küche sehr gut eingerichtet, schöner Sitzplatz und der grosse Pool zur alleinigen Benutzung ist der Hammer. Eines der 2 Bäder ist leider etwas eng.
Auch sehr gut geeignet für Kleinkinder, die Treppe ist duch ein Absperrgitter gesichert und der Pool ist komplett umzäunt.
Die Hausbesitzer sind sehr nett und zuvorkommend, leider sprechen sie nur Italienisch.
Wir hatten unseren Hund dabei, was völlig unproblematisch war.

Wer allergisch auf Froschgequake reagiert, sollte diese Wohnung nicht buchen. Die im hauseigenen Teich lebenden Frösche machen kaum Pause. Uns hat es absolut nicht gestöhrt...

Zentral gelegen für Ausflüge mit dem Auto nach Lucca, Pisa etc.

Alles in allem haben wir 2 Wochen erholsame Ferien an einem wunderschönen Ort verbracht. DANKE an die Familie Giannini!

WUNDERSCHÖNES HAUS - IDEAL FÜR SELBSTVERSORGER

  • 4 of 5
Wunderschönes,traditionelles, toskanisches Haus (erbaut 1847) eingebettet in einer herrlichen Landschaft mit sehr gepflegtem, großen Garten.
Das Haus ist ideal eingerichtet für Familie mit Kindern, die Küche ist gut für die Selbstversorgung ausgestattet. Moderne Waschmaschine, Geschirrspüler und großer Kühlschrank sind in sehr gutem Zustand vorhanden. Das Appartement ist mit sehr viel liebevollen Details ausgestattet.

Der Pool (sehr groß) und die Poolanlage sind sehr schön und gepflegt und gewähren viel Privatshpäre.
Die Wassertemperatur des Pools ist mit ca. 27 C erfrischend, leider gibt es keine Auflagen für die Liegen, die Sesseln sind nur beschränkt bequem.

Die dazügehörige Terasse befindet sich im Garten, somit ist kein direkter Zugang seitens Appartement möglich und nur über die steilen Treppen erreichbar.

Das Klima ist sehr angenehmen, abends kühlt es zumeist angenehm ab.

Die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und nett und hätten sicher viele Tipps für die Umgebung für Diejenigen die italienisch sprechen.

Wir haben sehr schöne hier Ferien verbracht.

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY HOME

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely beautiful and Mr. Giannini takes great pride in looking after his garden, which looks most fabulous. The bathrooms and bedrooms are very comfortable and clean and the equipment in the kitchen is complete, with dishwasher and all.

The whole house is decorated nicely and with lovely details. Every window has an insect screen, so they can stay open all night. The living room as well as the two bedrooms have airconditiong, but we didn't need it (thick farm walls!). The pool is great and very private (no sharing with anyone!).

The views from the house and garden are stunning! The frogs in the pond are not too loud at all. We didn't hear them at night, because the bedrooms are on the other side. The stairs are pretty steep and there are a lot of them to get to your frontdoor, but they're a nice way to keep you in shape ;-). The staircase as well as the pool have a fence to keep children safe. The house is generally child friendly, but do take the steep staircase into consideration.

Mr and Mrs Giannini are a lovely couple; they made time to explain everything to us and gave us great tips for restaurants and beaches. They made us feel very welcome. They only speak Italian but if you know a few Italian words, you'll get far!

Le Bicocche is only about 15 mins. away from the beaches in Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore. The beach in Marina di Torre del Lago is more quiet and peaceful than the ones in Viareggio and you'll see more locals there; a great way to spend a day.

Lucca is about 30 mins. away and easily accessible by car. Lucca is a wonderful city with loads of churches, nice squares, shops and restaurants (great tip: Trattoria Gigi at Piazza Carmine). The view from the Torre Giunigi is great and you can rent bikes to ride on the 4,2km long city wall.

Another good restaurant (with tasty antipasti) is Meraviglie in the town on top of the hill near Le Bicocche (on the road to Lucca). At the pizza take-away along the road to Camaiore they have fantastic and incredibly large woodoven-pizzas!

The grotte del Vento is an impressive cave, with guided tours in English and German (other languages available with headphones). Pisa is only 13km from Viareggio and it's worth a short trip to see the leaning tower and the other buildings (furthermore there is nothing much to see in Pisa).

But don't forget to enjoy Le Bicocche; even if you don't take day trips or visit the beach, you will still have a perfect time there!
