About Francesca and Paolo

This house has been restored with love and taste, we love it very much and wish to share its beauty with friends coming from all the world.

Why Francesca and Paolo chose Fivizzano

It's a unique opportunity to have a true Tuscany experience, being an old, traditional Villa which has been carefully restored, and enriched with all modern comforts.

Its strong point is also the location: it's a few minutes from the sea, but up in the hills, out of crowd, near medieval towns and villages, an ideal place for walking, trekking or just relax!

What makes this farmhouse unique

A strong point is also the large and comfortable common living/dining room, which allows our guests to stay all together and enjoy in mid seasons, the warm fire of the large fireplace!

Wonderful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed in this wonderfully restored farmhouse. The apartments are lovely furnished, the pool and the view are great. We were a group of 12 people including 3 children and 1 baby (spread on 3 apartments) and always found nice places to commonly sit together inside and outside. The owner sometimes surprised us with local specialities. We really had a great time.

Immer wieder auf´s Neue verzaubert

  • 5 of 5

Bereits zum zweiten Mal verbrachten wir unsere wichtigste Zeit im Jahr in dieser wundervollen Oase. Wir - 3 Erwachsene + 3 Kinder (7, 8 und 11 Jahre) - hatten die Wohnungen "Pesci" und "Pesci Alto" gebucht. Die Wohnungen befinden sich im selben Haus mit seperaten Eingängen.

Die Wohnungen bieten ausreichend Platz und nahezu alles, was ein "normaler" Haushalt zu bieten hat. So konnten wir auch innen in der unteren Wohnung zu sechst am Tisch essen ... schöner ist es aber auf dem kleinen Platz vor dem Haus, wo duftende Kräuter und blühende Sträucher wachsen und Goldfische im kleinen Teich schwimmen.

Hervorzuheben ist die liebevolle Ausstattung/ Restauration - sei es in den Wohnungen, dem gemütlichen Gemeinschaftsraum oder auf dem ganzen Objektgelände.

Die Aussicht vom höchsten Punkt - der Poolanlage - ist unverwechselbar.

Auch wenn mehrere Wohneinheiten auf dem Gelände sind, so hat doch jeder seine Privatsphäre. Der Pool ist groß genug für alle - zumal wir nie erlebt hatten, dass alle Urlauber zeitgleich am Pool waren. Immerhin gibt es genügend schöne Ausflugsziele in der Nähe - Cinque Terre, Tellaro, Lerici, La Spezia, Lucca usw...

Der Ort bietet einen kleinen "Tante Emma-Laden", wo es das nötigste zu kaufen gibt - auch frische Brötchen für´s Frühstück. Ansonsten befindet sich ein Supermarkt in ca. 15km Entfernung.

Wir haben dieses Jahr vorallem die Ruhe genossen, Bücher gelesen, im Pool uns erfrischt; einen wundervollen Abend mit allen Gästen im Gemeinschaftsraum erlebt; herzliche Gastgeber wiedergesehen; die malerischen Küstenorte neu entdeckt und somit einen wundervollen Urlaub verlebt.

Eins steht fest: wir kommen wieder und dann mit besseren Italienisch-Kenntnissen, damit wir uns endlich mit Sauro und Marina besser unterhalten können. Wir freuen uns darauf.

Fazit: Wunderschöne FeWo´s in herrlicher Landschaft mit sehr freundlichen Gastgebern. Sehr empfehlenswert - auch für mehrere befreundete Familien.

Ein Traum in Italien

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden vom Vermieter (der leider kein Wort Deutsch oder Englisch spricht, aber man versteht sich trotzdem), an einem Parkplatz empfangen und zum Haus gebracht, sonst hätten wir den Weg wohl nicht gefunden. Ist man aber erstmal dort, dann will man nie wieder fort!!!

Eine traumhafte Anlage, mit sechs Appartments (2-5 Personen), einem großen Gemeinschaftraum und eigenem Pool! Alles top gepflegt und liebevoll eingerichtet.

Jeden Morgen kam der Besitzer und hat sehr , sehr nett nach dem Rechten gesehen und ist auf alle Wünsche sofort eingegangen.

Im Dorf selber gibt es außer einem kleinen Laden nichts, man muß ca 20-30 Minuten fahren bis zum nächsten Supermarkt o.ä., aber die Aussicht auf die Berge und die Ruhe machen das allemal wett.

Man kann einfach die Seele baumeln lassen, sich im Pool abkühlen und die Sonne genießen.

Ich würde jederzeit wieder dort hin fahren und kann sagen, ich habe einen der schönsten Urlaube dort verbracht!
