A little paradise in the mountains with ocean view
We spent a wonderful week in the Glycine appartment with our two children (3 and 13 years old). Although the appartment is relativley small and our daughter slept on the sofabed in the main room, we loved that place so much that we didn't mind the missing room. The appartment has twoonderful terraces, on of which has sun in the morning so that we were able to have breakfast outside even in April! Kitchen (gas stove!!!) and bathroom totally good for a nice holiday,
The parent's bedroom really nice and place enough for baby cot. The surroundings are wonderful- a little paradise inmidst untouched nature if you walk up the hill to the end of the via di monti, and on the terrain itself there are olive trees, a slide and a swing, and a walking path that leads to a vista point with view on the beautiful lago del torre and the ocean behind. Wonderful and charming altogehter. and last but not least: the high quality home made food in Mara's restaurant- we recommend the mixed Tuscan appetizers and all of Mara's homemade pasta. A real good Italian cuisine which is hard to find elsewhere- a real nice restaurant that I recommend highly to everyone who loves fresh cooked Italian cuisine made ith love!
An ideal place for a quite holiday but also for swimming in the ocean (free beach at the marina di lago del torre!) or culture and shopping holidays (Lucca very nice, only 20 minutes by car) and Pisa is only a good 30 minutes' drive away. As or Florence and other Tuscan towns: we didn't go there as we already know other parts of Tuscany, but I'm sure they can easily reached by car or even train from Lucca. But the region around Lucca is worth a holiday itself, so if I were you, I'd first stay in the area itselff as there is al ot to discover! We'll come back soon, that's for sure!
A little paradise
After a lovely welcome with bruschetta italiana we were immediately feeling comfortable. The location in and around the apartment was great and we enjoyed using the nice pool, the two large and inviting sun terraces and the surroundings of the beautiful house. mara and her family were vey friendly. the house as such was very clean and pleasing, so it felt like home and there was nothing to worry about. we could use all of our time to relax and thoroughly enjoy the stay. the restaurant that is connected to the apartments was excellent. when staying at the apartment, it is necessary to have a car because the apartments are quite remote from towns like lucca, viareggio or pisa. we can only recommend staying there and are already considering going back there next year.
Relaxing Holidays with baby
We enjoyed our 2 weeks. It was a warm welcome with an Antipasti Toskani. In the price everything was included (even a cot for our baby) and the property was clean.
We would recommend it, maybe not for families with small children (1-2 years) because the garden could be a bit dangerous (small levels behind the house, swimming-pool), it would be better for older children.
Nice cities are arround the locations (Lucca, Pisa, Firenze; Siena about 150 km).
Wonderful location, great nature
A highly recommandable appartement. We had two lovely weeks there. Three wonderful terraces, a well-sized pool, a very good equiped kitchen, very friendly hosts and an excellent restaurant with Tuskan specialities. Although located a little bit lonely on the top of a hill, surrounded by great nature (very very calm) it was only a stone's throw away from Lucca, Viareggio and the versilia coast. So a good starting base for sightseeing. Maybe not so attractive for holidays with small kids but perfect for a relaxing holiday. Important: You definitly need a car.
Rien a dire ! Tout était très bien : l'appartement, la piscine avec une superbe vue et le restaurant (savoureux et pas cher).
Endroit calme, parfait pour se détendre.
Distance raisonnable de Pise, Lucques, Florence, les 5 Terres...
Nous gardons un très bon souvenir de nos vacances
Merci pour tout
Chiatri, the nearest village, is a little quiet burgh on the hills between Lucca and the Versilia coast with its long and crowded sandy beaches. The Versilia is famous in all Italy and abroad for its sprightly nightlife and its numerous discos. If you come to Residence Prato Verde, on the contrary, you can experience peace and relax. You will be immersed in olive groves and woods and you will find paths that are ideal for walks and mountain biking activities. As you certainly know, Chiatri was also Giacomo Puccini’s first summer residence. Puccini, the famous Italian composer, lived in Torre del Lago and came here to hunt and refresh himself during the hot summer periods. You can still visit his home. Moreover, if you are interested in art, culture and medieval towns, Lucca, at about 20 minutes from here, is one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. It is surrounded by well-preserved city walls on which no cars are allowed, and has myriad little lanes with modern shops.
