About Donatella

I am a teacher. I like my nice house. I like tending the garden in the peace of green Versilia Hills. I hope also you.

Why Donatella chose Massarosa

You will understand why it is a special place: the nature surrounding the house, the small ancient village, the peace and privacy of the small garden full of flowers and herbs, the spectacular view.

What makes this cottage unique

Rustico La Tinaia is a cozy detached stone house, located in the Versilia countryside, about 220 meter over sea level, in a beautiful location in a wooded and panoramic area, immersed in the nature, with olive trees, small groves and woods, it is surrounded by green Hills near Lucca, Alpi Apuane and Pisa. The garden, patio and veranda are beautiful isolated spaces where you can relax and have breakfast with a magnificent view of green hills, Lake and Tirreno sea.

Wonderful view, wonderful house. Quiet but close.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in July. It is a wonderful house, with a Beautiful view from the terrace. The house is well equiped, well kept and tastefully decorated.

It is up in the Mountains, which means that it is a bit cooler. Pisa is very near as well as the beaches of Viareggio. Florens is within a short distance and so is the wonderful Grotta di Vento. We have four kids and they enjoyed the variety of things to do; beaches, snorkling, the Caves, and of course the attractions in Pisa and Florens.

Wonderful house in a great nature

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this little house. It ist really nice with the old furniture an the garden with plants, flowers and herbs. You need a little time to come to the beach or the supermarket. But if you have a car it's no problem.

Donatella was very friendly, she expected us in the house and gave us all information, we needed.

So wie beschrieben.

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist so, wie wir es uns anhand der Bilder und der Beschreibung vorgestellt haben: rustikal, ruhig, mit hübscher Blumenterrasse, vor Kurzem erst grundüberholt und gut gepflegt; die Einrichtung überschaubar (v. a. Küchengeräte beachten...), dafür aber mit diversen originellen Möbeln. Organisatorisch hat alles gut funktioniert.

Zum Strand sind es ca. 20 Minuten Fahrt und einige Kurven, aber so ist das eben mit ruhigen Häusern auf Hügeln... Der freie Strand lohnt sich dann auch sehr. Zu den kulturellen Angeboten braucht man sicher an dieser Stelle nicht viel sagen. Erwähnenswert sind darüber hinaus noch die gut erschlossenen und erreichbaren Wandermöglichkeiten in den Apuanischen Alpen. - Eigenes Fahrzeug vorausgesetzt.
