A beautiful villa in an perfect setting. Very good restaurant within walking distance but the location is remote, which is also what makes it so special.
The owners have thought of everything when kitting out the villa which makes it feel like a home from home. Elsa was most helpful on arrival and during our stay. Would definitely return!
This was our second family holiday to this villa, it is absolutely beautiful inside and out! Equipped with everything you need and more. Very spacious and spotlessly clean, plenty of room for 8 people. Great pool and outside sitting areas were lovely. Would highly recommend this villa if you’re looking for a quiet relaxing holiday!
The villa is beautiful. It is very well equipped and comfortable. The garden and pool are fantastic. We really enjoyed the shaded gazebo in the garden as the weather was very hot during our stay. The air conditioning was very useful. The lady who greeted us was very helpful. We had some lovely day trips from the villa. The views from the garden are lovely.
The only issue we had was that the access to the property was a little tricky. Once you arrive in the village you have to pass down a narrow entrance to a lane, this then becomes a dirt track. Once at the villa we had to do some nifty manoeuvring to turn the cars around to exit the property. One of our cars was an estate car and every time we left the property the bottom of the car banged on the drive as it is quite steep and there was a piece of metal where the gates met. Having said that, we had a lovely week.
Met 2 gezinnen hebben wij een heerlijk verblijf gehad in dit mooie, prachtig gelegen huis. Het huis is sfeervol ingericht. Alle kamers zijn mooi en comfortabel. De keuken is een fijne zitkeuken en heeft een heerlijk terras voor het ontbijt. Onder de veranda, met uitzicht op de tuin en zwembad, hebben we genoten van onze lunches en diners. De pizzaoven was voor ons echt een succes. Wat maakt dat de etentjes gezellig en heerlijk! Het hek rondom de prachtige tuin geeft een veilig gevoel. Wij verbleven met kleine kinderen (1 t/m 5 jaar) en ook zij hebben zich zeer goed vermaakt. Het contact met de huiseigenaar en met de huisoppas verliep ook zeer fijn. We komen graag nog een keer terug op deze prachtige plek.
Me and my relatives ( 7 persons + a baby) stayed a week in this Villa in June 2012. The villa itself is beautiful, the garden and the pool area are well kept and gorgeous. The villa is situated in a small hill, and it is a steep rise with a car. The area is surrounded with a fence .You can have 2-3 cars in the frontyard if needed. An automatic gate tho the villa is situated so that getting in and out with a car was quite difficult within the small space near the gate, we managed though:).The location is great for exploring Cinque Terre, Garfaganana, Pisa, Lucca, Florence.The beach is only 8 km away and can be seen from the hill.
There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, same floor as the pool, one of them with a king size bed, other with queen size I think.Both of these rooms are very nice and modern and have a nice view.These is also one bathroom with a tub between them, also with a view. The living room and the dining table outside are great! The only little minus was there is no shower curtain in the tub, so if you use it as a shower, there is water all over the bathroom.That is only a small detail and with a smaller company will not be an issue:).
Downstairs there is a kitchen with dining table, also very nice, the only thing we didn't find were scissors:) Next to the kitchen there is a small living room with tv. We thought that the tv could have been upstairs, since now with the kitchen and the tv downstairs, we really didn't use the upstairs living room, which is much more spacious than the one downstairs. Then again we were there at the time on football european championship games, so had it not been that time, we wouldn't have watched the tv that much anyway:). There are 2 small nicely furnished bedrooms with twin beds in this floor.These are under ground level, so there is no view from the small windows and sometimes a little problem with moisture. However, the villa has a machine that takes away moisture, as well as air conditioning and heating. The villa also has a baby bed and a highchair.
The land lady is lovely and helpful. Wireless internet didn't work when we arrived, but she got it working very soon and will help you with any problems you may have.
All in all I would say, that the pictures of the villa were very truthful and the villa was as nice as we thought it would be. The garden area was even more beautiful and bigger than we thought. I would recommend this villa for everyone looking for a great location and upscale accomodation!
Having made a previous but brief visit to the Viareggio area, we wanted a base close to the sea, the mountains and the Tuscan historical jewels of the area. Villa La Fata ticked all the boxes, excellent accommadation, three alternative dining areas, superb pool and sun worshiping areas plus enough shade to cool off. We even managed a barbeque and a try of the Pizza Oven (need more practice here!) The Villa was well equipped with all kitchen essentials, good bathrooms and v.comfortable beds. Two families were extremely well housed and were never short of entertainment, including a table tennis championship! The local restaurant, a 10minute walk away, was a real treat, although a quick drive into Pietrasanta opened an entirely broader and more sophisticated range of food options. We are growing to love italy's sophistication and this area fulfilled our expectations completely. We will certainly return.
Riviera of Versilia is the white beach area closest to Florence in Tuscany in the province of Lucca which extends from Forte dei Marmi, commonly called 'il Forte' , passing through Pietrasanta, Camaiore, Viareggio until Torre del Lago. La Versiliana beach seaside several miles of beautiful clean white sandy beaches, restaurants and shops characterised by traditional Tuscany welcome and comfort.
It has been the homeland and meeting point of great artists since the beginnings of 1900. In those days, world-known artists, have made Versilia famous. Today the Versilia is still one of the finest regions in Italy that attract both Italian and foreign tourists. .
Forte die Marmi has always been the most lively and fashionable resort of the Versilia. Pietrasanta is the destination for sculptors in Carrara marble. In the nearby Camaiore, every year the 'Tappeti di Segatura' (Sawdust Rugs) festival takes place. In July and August you can see the 'Puccini Festival' in Torre del Lago.
