mountain retreat close to tourist areas, beach

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeously converted wine cellar with views of the valley and ocean. Owners kept interesting architectural details to create a one-of-a-kind spacious, comfortable, classy retreat. Dream marble kitchen came stocked with home-grown spices. Try Ristorante Emili a few steps away for local traditional dishes.

Abbiamo soggiornato presso la Maison Boutique delle essenze nel caratterisco borgo di Giucano le prime tre settimane di agosto, la casa molto confortevole, pulita e arredata con gusto ci ha permesso di trascorrere giornate tranquille con tutti i confort necessari ad un gruppo eterogeneo per età ed esigenze. Proprietari gentili e premurosi!

Vivamente consigliata.

Ottima location per chi ama natura e silenzio

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo utilizzato la Casa delle essenze come base per visitare la Lunigiana. Abbiamo trovato un'ottima accoglienza da parte di Adriana e Roberto, in una casa di fascino, perfettamente ristrutturata e funzionale. La vista panoramica sulle colline rigogliose che si scorge dalle finestre, la purezza e il profumo dell'aria che si respira e il silenzio rotto solo dal rumore dei corsi d'acqua o da cinguettii, offrono l'occasione per un vero relax. senz'altro torneremo per un altro periodo di vacanza.
