Loved staying here, the house is filled with country antiques, old books, magazines from the 1930’s. The rooms are small but perfect in every way. Beds comfortable, excellent shower. The ladder stairs may be a challenge for some, I’m not that agile but justcamedown backwards and had no problem. The house is well equipped, great kitchen with everything you want, I think it is equipped for their own big family gatherings. Nice outside table in the lovely garden with stunning views. The photos on VRBO are exactly as it is. It is hard to believe that the family allow other guests to stay here. The house has been in the family for 3 or 4 generations.
We arrived at night and had a bit of a problem finding it do arrive in day light if possible. The brown gets say Bafonni on them and the house is a right and second rights. More brown gates into the garden.
There is only one restaurant in Padona but we ate there four times, wonderful food, not at all expensive and not filled with tourists. Note that it is closed on Tuesdays.
Carrera marble quarry tour was amazing, Pietrasanta is a must stop for an hour, see the main squares. CinqueTerra was good but very busy. Loved Lucca. Tried to swim but everywhere is private you pay for a chair for the day. We discovered later there are free beaches if you know where to look. Note that it takes 10minutes drive down the windy road before you reach the main road to get anywhere. Apparently there is a national park south of Viareggio where you can park and walk to beach.
We would absolutely stay here again if we returned to the area. Our hosts where charming we were so glad to meet them when we arrived.
The apartment looked exactly as on the pictures. Everything was new and very clean. We were there with 4 adults, and there was room enough to sleep. The bed and couch were comfortable. We loved the location of the house the sea was just in front of the apartment. You can't swim there, but you can sit/walk there and enjoy the view. The public beach is very close, within 10 min walk. There are few restaurants and a small supermarket near by. The owner was very friendly and helpful, always fast in answering our questions. We enjoyed our 10 days stay, and highly recommend this place.
