Best place

  • 5 of 5

We had amazing vacations in villa Solco. This house was built in traditional style and keeps unique atmosphere. There are a lot of ancient things inside which were interesting for our kids of 11, 5 and 3 years.

The owner Alfredo makes nice olive oil and is very friendly. The agent Claudia was very helpful and gave as a lot of good advises about this area and places near to visit.

House is well located. We could easily reach perfect beaches, nice old towns, restaurants ets. Also Lucca, Pisa, Florence and 5 terre are in short drive. The same time house is situated on the mountain away from it all.

I can highly recommend this villa for families or couples, you will defenetly enjoy your stay in Solco!

Perfect location, wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our children aged 3 and 6 months, stayed here for 4 weeks from 14 April 2012. We knew the area from the previous year and that was a definite advantage. The weather wasn't great for the first 2 weeks but we're Irish so a little rain didn't spoil the holiday.

The house is big and is set on 3 floors, with an adjoining room in a little separate house. It is set on a small olive grove, inside a hairpin bend on the road up to Monteggiori. The road can be busy but the grounds are secure for small children.

The house was clean and well maintained, and it was well cleaned every week while we were there.

One thing to be aware of - and this seems to be common to this part of Italy - the electrical circuits within the house are a bit lightweight and can't handle too many heavy appliances at once.

The agent Claudia is very friendly and attentive and is a great resource for information about the area and Italian life in general. It was the second year we had rented from her and we will do so again in 2013.

The owner is a lovely gentleman and makes the most wonderful olive oil. He keeps everything in top condition and attends to minor problems promptly.

The view from the house is fantastic and the view from the hill towards Monteggiori is worth the walk. Indeed, the walk to the top of the hill is about a mile and is pretty steep - good for working up an appetite.

The beach at Lido di Camaiore is about 7 or 8 minutes in the car, as is the beautiful town of Pietrasanta. Cinque Terre and Lucca are both about 30 minutes away and Florence is about 50 minutes. A trip to the marble mines at Carrara is a must, although the drive into the mountains is not for the faint-hearted.

A brilliant holiday in a beautiful place.

Relaxing property not to far and not to close from everywhere.

we are an italian family with english friends, with a beautiful sea view it's suitable for our family holidays.

Pietrasanta, the little Athen is 3 km far from the house and the sea 5-6 km.

we spent a very good time there so i can suggest to all
