Former entrepreneurs in the EDP market, transferred from Milan to Versilia in maturity to improve the quality of life - Strong attention to the environment and sustainable consumption.
Paola purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1986
Why Paola chose Camaiore
We choosed to live in this peaceful place in the heart of Tuscany and we want to share with travellers our life choices and love for nature.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The property is the result of 20 years of investment in the recovery of ancient buildings with original materials in the traditional rural area of Tuscany and Versilia in particular. Ancient stone walls, floors and ceilings in terracotta and exposed chestnut beams give the house a charming character of old times to provide an unforgettable setting. In their garden centenary olive trees offer discreet protection for your relaxation moment, like wise old men listening to the summer breeze that rises from the sea to the hills.

Off the Beaten Track
Whilst the property itself was lovely we did have a couple of issues with it:-
I. It was situated within olive trees with a population of insects which made it difficult to eat outside on the terrace.
2. We found the location too remote in that access to the property was by an extended labyrinth of ,narrow steep tracks, not much wider than one car width.
The most attractive quality of our property, which is clearly presented in our Homeaway page, is being located in an ancient olive grove, in a peaceful and relaxing place far from the confusion of the town. First of all we are concerned by the respect of natural environment.
Of course we take care of the comfort of our guests providing a pest control of annoying insects, in addition with mosquito nets added on the doors and insect repellents for kids supplied for free in case of need.
The roads to reach the house are all paved: passing through a beautiful wild forest you can drive till our private parking where two cars can find place. Moreover with a simple hand torch you can reach in few minutes two restaurants and pizza shop also by foot just 800 meters far from us: is what we often do also in wintertime especially not to drive after having some glasses of fine Tuscan red wine.
Is what you can do for "living local"during your holidays at Borgo4case.
Gorgeous villa in a peaceful setting
We spent a lovely week at 'La Torretta' and only have good things to say about the place. It was a beautiful villa and very well-equipped. Lucio and Paola (the hosts) were extremely welcoming and provided everything we needed, like a high chair and baby bath, on request. There was also a bottle of wine and fruit basket waiting for us on arrival which was a very thoughtful touch.
The villa is really well located for visiting places like Lucca, Florence and Siena for those warning to explore the area. However, it is also a lovely base to spend time in and worth making use of the great BBQ facilities and gorgeous pool.
We would definitely consider coming back again and possibly renting both villas with a group of friends or family.
Thanks again Lucio and Paola.
Dear guests, thanks to you for your appreciation. We shall be happy to welcome you again in the future with your friends or family. Best wishes from Villa Gaia in Camaiore.
It has been five months since our vacation in Camaiore and I am still dreaming about our peaceful and relaxing stay at La Stalleta. I loved everything about it. The house is set up in the hills among olive trees and flowers. We spent most of our time outside - there are two verandas or terraces - where we read books, drank wine, and enjoyed dining al fresco. My two teenage sons especially enjoyed the pool and the Internet access, even at the pool garden area. The house, itself, is charming and provided for all of our needs. It is well-maintained and updated with two nice bathrooms (with good water pressure). My favorite room in the house was the master bedroom - the original Tuscan windows let in lots of sunlight and moonlight and the bed was so comfortable - the most peaceful sleeping we've ever had. The location is also very good. Even though you are up in the hills, we could walk to a family pizza restaurant, where we had the best pizza ever. We took day trips to Lucca, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Florence, and San Gimignano. There is also a beach close by. However, what made Villa Gaia so special were its owners, Paola and Lucio. They were very welcoming and made us feel at home. They lived only two minutes away and were available if we ever needed anything or had questions. We look forward to returning some day soon.
Thank you very much Carla. It is so nice to know that our concept of receiving our foreigner guests is fully appreciated and it pushes us to do ever our best in the future.
We hope you could to plan for coming again in Tuscany as you have said: there are so many places to visit and things to do, so is easy for us to signalize something special to make your holidays beautiful and unforgettable. Actually we are very happy to see that many guests return to Villa Gaia after the first time and we are ready to give them new destinations to meet new emotions. Every day of your holidays will be an adventure letting you to discover something unusually far from the classic touristic trip, well organized, without any disappointing surprise.
Thank you again for your nice words of appreciation and be sure of our good souvenir of all of you.
Un très agréable séjour
La Stalleta est en effet une maison pleine de charme et accueillante, rénovée avec beaucoup de goût mais aussi très bien équipée et confortable. La piscine au milieu des oliviers est parfaite et grâce à un agencement particulièrement réussi, le voisinage avec l'autre location toute proche ne pose aucun problème.
Pieve est une toute petite localité mais avec toutefois deux pizzeria (notre préféré : C'era una volta ), un marchand de fruits et légumes et une supérette très pratique. Seul bémol, l'accès à la villa située sur les hauteurs du village se fait par une route très étroite et sinueuse qui ne facilite pas les déplacements. Les propriétaires sont trés accueillants et disponibles, beaucoup de possibilités de visites et une région magnifique bien sûr.
Belle propriété idéale pour famille
Très belle maison, propre et très bien décorée. Le cadre est très joli, calme, sur une colline à 30 minutes de la mer. La piscine est grande. L'eau légèrement salée et non chlorée ce qui est bien plus agréable.
Les propriétaires sont très gentils, à l'écoute et disponible.
Nous avons passé des vacances inoubliable.
Nous recommandons vivement cette location, vous ne serez pas déçus!
A rustic house with much comfort
The house at a lovely property is very well equipped. If you like antique furniture you are right here. Nevertheless you will find a lot of modern technical devices in the kitchen. Internet works well in the house and also at the pool. Sleeping rooms are air conditioned. The ground floor keeps cool enough without AC.
Both terraces are very beautyful and privacy is guaranteed. You will meet the neighbors from the second house only at the Swimming pool. The pool is fantastic, about 13 m Long and ideal to swim a while.
The Approach is a bit tricky, but once done you get used to it.
Contact to the owner Paolo and her family is very simple and we appreciated it. You will find help when ever needed.
Perfect Location for visiting Lucca, Montecatini Terme, Florence and Pisa for example.
Petra, Hans and Gunnar are very polite and nice guests, sympathetic people.
We hope to welcome you and Ulla again in the future. Thank you for your good review!
