Overview

About the property

Villa with three bedrooms for 6/8 persons, kids and animals are welcome

Villa la Sirena is a large and comfortable house on the Versilia's hills, with a fantastic view on the coast, from Livorno to La Spezia, which embraces the whole Massaciuccoli lake. In the clear days it is even possible to see till Corsica and Elba island.

Villa la Sirena is a typical holiday house, surrounded by a pine and chestnut wood. It has a private garden of about 500 m2, where kids and animals can calmly play in security. The wood and the garden make this place particularity calm, and there are no neighbours to disturb.

The house has two floors with two wide terraces facing the sea. The ground floor has a large kitchen, the dining room, a corner living room and a small storeroom. Two steps lead to the first bedroom and to the bathroom. The upper floor has a wide and clear living room, with very large windows facing the sea and the lake. The room has a warming chimney and a bed sofa. From the living room, a small staircase and a wooden gallery bring to the two other bedrooms with a baby bed.

The kitchen is very wide and well equipped. In the dining room, a large table can keep till 8/10 people. In the upper floor living room is particularly large, with armchairs and big sofas.

The furniture is simple but particularly comfortable, with some old pieces of furniture, pictures and hunting scenes on the walls. The house has also a shell library with illustrated books over Tuscany and others artistic and tourist Italian towns and places. The outside garden, just next to the house, has a wood-oven where roasted meats, breads and pizzas can be easily baked. In the pine wood you can find also an old gazebo where you can read, play cards and even enjoy a candle light dinner.

From Villa la Serena you can walk in the woods reaching the small villages of Fibbialla and Gualdo, where you can find a restaurant which serves also pizzas. From Villa la Sirena you can see the Massaciuccoli lake, which largely inspired the famous composer Giacomo Puccini. During the Summer, in Torre del Lago Puccini you can enjoy a famous Opera Festival with many Puccini's unforgettable operas, like Turandot, Boheme, Tosca, etc. In the surroundings there is Pieve a Elici (2,8 km) with the splendid Romanesque parish church of San Pantaleone. Here, in the summer months are held very good chamber music concerts. Not far (6 km) you find Massarosa, a large village with all kind of shops and a supermarket. Camaiore (12 km) is an old small town, famous for its typical gastronomic specialities. On the coast, there is Viareggio (12 km) with its beaches, cinemas and nice shops all along the beautiful and long promenade.

A truly lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this charming property set in the hills. The stunning views were a pleasure to enjoy and we also enjoyed many local woodland walks with our dog (who was welcome in the property). A car is absolutely essential here - but as with previous reviewers, the train system is good in Italy, so traveling to major tourist sites from Viareggio is a very good idea (slightly confusing parking though!).

This very much feels like a family home, it has a genuine homely feel to it and with its wonderful garden (with lots of places to play hide and seek or to play with a dog) it was a perfect location for our holiday. It is very comfortable, and we very much enjoyed having a fire on the colder evenings (Easter vacation). On warmer days, sitting out on the terrace (especially the upper floor terrace) made for a very memorable pre-dinner drink!

The owners, Daniele and Claudia, made us feel very welcome, with fresh flowers, Easter decorations and a welcome basket of local produce. They quickly answered all emails prior to arrival, took time to show us everything at the property and were at genuine pains to ensure everything was perfect for our stay.

We enjoyed many local meals (including a spectacular meal in Camaiore - an easy 10 minute drive away.)

We thoroughly recommend this excellent property - the location and the owners make it a top quality place to stay.

Incredible house in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Claudia and Daniele's house this July and our visit was an amazing experience. The house has everything you will need during your stay, it is spacious, airy, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The house is located on the hill, it has a very quiet location, a lovely garden and stunning views. We have never stayed in a holiday house that has so much character. We all appreciated the music, library, DVDs and all the other extras that made our stay very enjoyable. We traveled with 2 kids, 12 and 9 years old and a dog. The house is also suitable for smaller children.

Claudia and Daniele are both such nice owners, very caring and helpful. They both took so much time and care to show us the house and answer our questions. It was very easy to communicate together before our arrival and during our stay. We needed to change the date of our stay and they were very accommodating.

This area of Italy has so much to offer to everyone. Pisa, Lucca and Florence are all a must to see, all towns are reachable by car. The car is essential. The beaches are beautiful in the area. The food is amazing. We highly recommend the house and we will love to come back on another occasion.

Incredible views!

  • 4 of 5

The incredible views from this property will keep you gazing for hours from the balconies.

We choose the house as it looked comfortable and there were comfortable sofas to sit and relax on, often an oversight on many properties. The house has real charm and as we were early in the season we were grateful for the central heating and the log fireplace which kept us cosy. On better days we soaked up the sun on the sunbeds in the cute garden. In summer there are some lovely spot to enjoy meas in the shaded garden.

Danielle and Claudia took immense care in making the property welcoming and answered all our questions.

Our location allowed us easy day trips to Lucca (not to be missed), Cinqe Terre, Pisa, and the coastline. We took a train from Viareggio station to Florence, thus avoiding traffic and parking chaos.

Altogether it was a great spot for us.

Consigliatissima!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso una vacanza veramente piacevole. La casa accogliente e confortevole ubicata in una posizione che permette di godere di un magnifico panorama. Molto silenziosa con il giardino ottimo per noi e per i nostri due cani.

Eravamo alla ricerca di un posto dove poterci rilassare e villa La Sirena è stata una magnifica scelta.

Ringraziamo Daniele e sua moglie per la loro grande disponibilità e infinita cortesia; nella loro bella casa abbiamo passato veramente una bellissima vacanza.

Une location dans un cadre privilégié

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines dans cette très agréable maison extrêmement propre. Rien ne manque pour un séjour confortable. Quel plaisir que de profiter de la terrasse au coucher du soleil avec cette superbe vue sur la mer et le lac Puccini. Une petite brise rafraîchissante permet de ne pas souffrir de la chaleur.

Merci à Claudia et Daniele pour leur chaleureux accueil, leurs bons conseils touristiques et leur gentillesse.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location calme à proximité de la mer, de Pise, Lucques et Piertasanta qui nous a particulièrement séduits. Florence est aussi facilement accessible en voiture.

Le camp de base idéal pour visiter cette partie de la Toscane.
