|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Those in between the taste for seaside and countryside will find their ideal place in this lovely house, located in a very quiet position on a hillside on the Versilian coast. The location is particularly convenient, as it is at walking distance from the village of Capezzano Monte with shops and a restaurant and only 6 km away from Pietrasanta. This very attractive town, 'City of Arts' since 1841 and nicknamed 'the little Athens', lies between the sea and the Apuan Alps and became renowned thanks to the high concentration of internationally famous artists that decided to set there (among those are Fernando Botero, Igor Mitoraj, Kan Yasuda and the former actress Gina Lollobrigida), due to the long tradition of marble workers. The historic center is nowadays considered one of the most elegant and cultural sites in Italy, where visitors may find over 50 art galleries, fashionable boutiques, wine bars and international cultural events such as exhibitions, concerts and festivals. The renowned soft sandy beaches of the Versilia coast are also within 10 km, with high-quality beach equipment and several gardens, shops, restaurants, discos and nightclubs. The views from the whole property on the sea are spectacular and stretch from Elba Island to the Cinque Terre. The house has been recently totally restored using only typical materials of Tuscan tradition such as cotto floors, marble, chestnut wood and local tufo, yet it is equipped with sophisticated and environmentally friendly appliances such as a geothermic heating system. The interiors are light and comfortable and every bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a laundry room on ground floor with washing machine and dryer (7 kg) and a guest bathroom. The high position above the sea and the near forest always guarantee a pleasant breeze even in the hottest summer days. A special feature of this lovely property are the several areas where to relax or dine enjoying breathtaking views, or simply taste a glass of wine at sunset. The infinity swimming pool is ideal for refreshing the hottest days. An inviting sun terrace (35 sq meters) will delight those looking for bright sun and blue sky, while the back porch and the covered front terrace (45 sq meters, with sliding doors on all sides and two air-conditioners), are perfect for al fresco eating or for resting moments. To complement the outdoor life is an area with barbecue and pizza oven, also dominating outstanding views over the sea.

The Villa is absolutely beautiful with spectacular views of the city of Peitrasanta below. Some mornings looking out, you are above the clouds. The downside is It is a 20 minute drive to get down the mountain with a lot of hair pin turns on a narrow road, they do have guard rails in some places along the way. They now have enclosed the lower patio with glass/ sliders. I would recommend they put the screens in the sliders. There was a wonderful breeze sitting there with the sliders open but the flys during the day & mosquitoes at night were very annoying. The pool was heavenly to have at the end of the day. The owners were just wonderful, the interior & exterior was beautifully decorated, simple & elegent. You can see they take great pride in sharing their home. I would recommend this home to friends & family
Amazing villa. So relaxing. The villa got very hot during the night and as we were aware how expensive energy costs were we suffered the nighttime heat which was not pleasantt and resulted in us not getting much sleep. The owners need to make the villa more noticeable from the roadside. We passed it twice without realising as there was no visible sign from the roadside. Not a pleasant experience combined with hillside driving! But having said all of that we had an amazing relaxing time.
Our joy, our astonisment and our excitement about this overwhelming life soothing property surpasses every felling we had anticipated.
None of the pictures you couls ever take of and from this place will match your live experience.
And the silence.
Optimales Haus, um auch in den Genuss des Strandes (Meer) zu kommen. Einzig die Ausstattung der Küche kann bemängelt werden. Ansonsten ist es eine wunderschöne "Bleibe".
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] Perfect villa, also to enjoy the beach (sea). Only the kitchen equipment can be faulted. Otherwise, it has been a a wonderful stay.
