Just what we needed. Excellent location near supermarket and fruit stand across the street. Easy access to autostrada for trips nearby. Clean comfortable house (no WiFi but told they will have soon) Claudio was a great host meeting us before, letting us know where to go, explaining the recycling system in Versilia, and available if we needed him. Gated enclosed yard was perfect for our little dog to run free. Lots of room to park. Easy safe bicycle ride to the beach. A/C in 3 bedrooms was a benefit during especially hot nights. All in all a great way to spend time in Forte Dei Marmi to enjoy the dolce vita.
First off, our hosts are wonderful people. They were very accommodating and helpful. And the home was as described and located in good proximity to our beach club and the center.
As with every rental we've ever had in forte there is some updating to be done - this is universal there unless you're willing to spend $20,000 a week. We are somewhat spoiled because we have eight bathrooms in our six bedroom house so having two shared bathrooms on the top floor with four bedrooms requires some negotiating and timing. Note that the fourth upstairs bedroom does not have air conditioning. This is something I think Roberto should consider adding if structurally possible. Small point, but air drying, which is the norm, causes the towels to be somewhat stiff and not soft as you'd expect in the u.s. We bought five new towels and left them behind for the next guests!
Just trying to be transparent here so expectations are clear.
Overall we had a great time, we enjoyed the pool on several occasions, never watched TV once (although they have them), we loved being able to bike everywhere, and the home is perfect for a family or a few good friends. I recommend it highly for its location, amenities, and the truly wonderful hosts.
