Marina di Massa House Rental Photos and Description
A total of 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms / prices for 6 or 12 people
This property is only a short walk (700 m) from the sandy beach. In nearby Forte dei Marmi (7 km) you are greeted by an impressive backdrop: the long, white sandy beach bordered at the back by the mighty Apuanic Alps. Michelangelo even selected his blocks of marble from among the Forte dei Marmi marble quarries. These are still in operation but Forte dei Marmi is now better known as a bathing resort - one of the most famous beaches in Tuscany, where VIPs have their summer villas and mix (more or less) incognito with the many visitors. The coast is full of many different restaurants with fish as a specialty, while in the mountains beyond, you will find many meat and mushroom dishes.

Italian beach-life is usually organised through beach clubs, where you can rent a cabin, a parasol and sunbeds by the day or the week as well as have drinks and snacks at the bar of the stabilimento. This system turns out to be very convenient if you have small children. Mostly you can just show up at the club with no reservation. Those looking for empty beaches will find them only a short walk away (1400 m). Lovers of hidden rocky shores will need to drive down further south but the journey is soon covered along the Via Aurelia.
One of the many benefits of this house is its location. It offers a wide range of options: a lively beach holiday near to an exclusive bathing resort, a short trip to the famous Tuscan art cities (our favorite is the very charming Lucca) and - last but not least - the romantic and peaceful mountain villages nestling among the Apuanic Alps - a Hinterland with mountains towering over 1000 m - are just some examples of the attractions in this area. What a pleasant change to the Dolce Vita at the beach!
GRANDE PRATO (means 'large lawn') is situated in a quiet, leafy residential area on the edge of Ronchi, 7 km from Forte dei Marmi. The property is around 900 m2, with this delightful red house standing in the middle. The house is divided into two units: GRANDE PRATO is the main section of this detached villa.
