About Elisabetta Manuelli-Heffernan

A true Florentine by birth, a professional of foreign languages, after living in ghe US at the end of the '80s, I decided to move back to Italy with my husband Michael, because I am Italian at heart. Several years and two children later, vacations led us to Campiglia and we fell in love with it! Hopefully you'll do too in our humble home!!!

Elisabetta Manuelli-Heffernan purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Elisabetta Manuelli-Heffernan chose Campiglia Marittima

Around 2010 my husband Michael and I fell in love with Campiglia and its medieval charm made of narrow alleys and buildings untouched by time, and we ended buying an apartment for us and our children. The atmosphere of the small town where there is always some show or market at night, the beauty of the nearby beaches and the surrounding places finished by charming us fully and I hope that you'll be charmed too!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is a good combination of old and new. One wall of the day area still shows an incision on a stone dating back to the 14th century, while the locals say darkened wooden beams of the ceiling still show the traces of the smoke and fire used to sanitize the rooms after the plague. Everything is yet combined with a modern and functional taste in layout and furniture particularly suitable to families with children.

veramente piacevole

  • 5 of 5

Casa accogliente ,pulita, con tutti gli accessori. interessanti le chiacchierate con il vicino , al fresco della panchina sotto casa,al ritorno dal mare. Posizione ottimale per mare, arte e tutto ciò che la Toscana può offrire. Il paese molto bello(ho sofferto un po`le salite) i bambini(6 e 11 anni)potevano uscire tranquillamente da soli.Gentili e disponibili Elisabetta e la sua amica Beatrice.

In conclusione ci siamo trovati a meraviglia. Se quest'anno non avessi organizzato la vacanza con un altra famiglia saremmo sicuramente tornati.

P.S.mi scuso con Elisabetta per il ritardo della recensione.

Gemütliche Wohnung inmitten eines Bergdorfes

  • 4 of 5

Wir wurden vom Treffpunkt abgeholt, zum Parkplatz geleitet, wo wir unser Auto abstellen konnten.

Zur Wohnung waren es noch ca. 500 m, die wir mit dem Gepäck zu Fuß zurücklegen mußten. Vor dem Haus ist Halten oder Parken nicht erlaubt!

Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Man fühlt sich sofort in das italienische Leben integriert.

Lediglich die Armaturen im Bad , Toilette und Waschbecken bedürfen einer Erneuerung.

Uns hat es gutgefallen, wir kommen gerne wieder!

Erholsamer Urlaub in typisch italienischem Städtchen

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub in Campiglia Marittima. Wir hatten schon vor unserer Anreise Kontakt mit Elisabetta und sie hat alle Fragen geduldig und vor allem sehr schnell beantwortet. Elisabetta hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und es war in der liebevoll eingerichteten Wohnung alles vorhanden, was man braucht, sogar ein Sonnenschirm für den Strand.

Toll war auch, dass man nur 1 Minute von der Hauptpiazza entfernt wohnt, wo man abends wunderbar essen und trinken kann. Typisch italienisches Flair in der gesamten Stadt ohne viele Touristen.

Besonders angenehm war für uns als Familie mit zwei Kindern, dass sowohl ein Geschirrspüler, als auch eine Waschmaschine vorhanden war.

Selbst Waschmittel, Geschirrspültabs und Geschirrspülmittel waren da.

Einziges kleines Manko war, dass man als Nicht-Hundebesitzer leicht gerochen hat, dass ansonsten in der Wohnung auch ein Hund lebt.

Zwischen den zwei Schlafzimmern war unterhalb der Decke eine ca. 2-3 Meter lange und ca. 50 cm hohe Öffnung in der Mauer, was auf den Bilder leider nicht erkennbar war.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We had real good time. The apartment was clean and we had a lot of space. Elisabetta took a real effort in making everything comfortable for us. She even baught a travel bed for our little son so we could have him in the main bedroom. She perfectly organized everything, so we got our keys right at our arrival.

The apartment is located very central and you find everything you need nearby. The town itself is beautiful and it was really quite.

Thank you a lot Elisabetta for the great time we had. It was perfect.
