Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We returned again this year to Pietrasanta to this lovely apartment. The apartment is located on one of the quieter streets in Pietrasanta but close enough to walk to everything.

We wake every morning to the sound of church bells. Wonderful places to eat and shop nearby.

Beautiful old and stylish property in a fantastic Location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for a week in June and had a fantastic time.

Tomasso (the owner), met us at the town square and had sorted everything for us. He had provided clear directions and instructions for us to get there from the airport; he had also got hold of a parking permit for Pietrasanta as we had a hire car. The property is well equipped with instructions and guides for all your needs. There was also a gift of some local wine and bread to give us a taste of local culture on arrival! The apartment was clean and set up ready for us.

The property is right in the centre of town, 1 minute walk from the main town square. Located off and around this are museums, galleries, restaurants, bars and cafes - plenty to choose from and to tailor for all budgets.

If visiting for a weekend you would never need to leave Pietrasanta as you have everything you need in a beautiful chic and very old Tuscan town. If staying for longer it is a perfect base to explore Tuscany.

We can fully recommend this lovely place.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review about my apartment in Pietrasanta. I understood stat you lived in right way the Italian "experience". I do love my country therefore it is normal to say that Italy is beauty, color and passion. Italy is not only a geographical place but also a life style made of creativity, music, style, beauty, traditions, fragrance, taste and "aroma" (the same of our coffee). I do hope to meet you again one day - hoping that I have not to wait other 25 years! - why not in my apartment in Lucca (click ) I wish you the best. Tommaso

Jednoznačně skvělé! / Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Byt je vyborne polozen blizko centra mestecka Pietrasanta, ktere je nadherne a plne umeni jak v galeriich, tak i primo pod sirym nebem. Pietrasanta je vecer plna života, který však nijak neobtezuje hlukem. Skvele taky pro vyjížďky do okoli a to jak autem, tak vlakem - Pisa, Lucca, Apuanske Alpy, Cinque Terre...

Byt je vyborne vybaven a vhodny pro 2 osoby, pripadne s malym dítětem. Tomasso je velmi ochotny s cimkoli pomoci, mluvi vyborne anglicky. Velmi jsme si pobyt užili! Doporučuji!


The flat is perfectly located close to the city center of Pietrasanta which is amazing and full of arts in galeries and also in open space. The town is full of life in evenings which is not disturbing. Ideal for travelling around by car or by train - Pisa, Lucca, Apuan Alps, Cinque Terre...

The flat is perfectly equipped and enough for 2 adults, eventually with a small child. Tomasso is very kind and helpful, speaking English very well. We enjoyed our stay very much! I fully recommend!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. You were also special guests: we appreciated very much your chocolates you presented for my family. I do hope to meet you again one day: one trip is not sufficient to discover the beauty of our country and towns. I wish you the best and hope to visit your country with my family as well. Tommaso

Charming, comfortable and very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Tommaso is the perfect host. He makes clear arrangements for meeting up and checking in which is very good when one is arriving in a new town and spent a lot of time with us to get us settled in. The apartment was charming, comfortable and very well equipped for travellers like us who like to buy fresh food locally and cook at home. Best of all it was very warm and had lots of good information for travellers and interesting books to read. The location so close to the spectacular main square was perfect. We had excellent meals at Gatto Nero, Osteria de Gusto and Serendipity.

Thank you Tommaso for a wonderful week.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apartment for a 6 week stay, it surpassed all of our expectations..........Tommaso picked us up at the Pisa Train Station and on the way to Pietrasanta he explained the countryside. Once we arrived at the apartment he explained how everything worked and didn't leave until we were comfortable. The next 6 weeks we enjoyed "living" the Tuscan life, we were able to take the train all over Italy, always returning to a place we felt safe walking around. The kitchen was perfect for trying my Italian cooking. We used the bikes that were provided to go to the beach and explore the city. We would highly recommend this apartment for a marvelous vacation. Tommaso was a great host!

Car: not necessary

Pietrasanta is the ideal location in Tuscany for daily trips to Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Cinque Terre and Viareggio. You do not need a car to visit the surrounding artistic towns as Pietrasanta downtown has a train station and a terminal bus station. In addition you can rent a bike and ride on a safe bike path from Pietrasanta to the sea (4 km) and from there towards Forte dei Marmi (northbound) and towards Lido di Camaiore and Viareggio (southbound).

The main amenities are: beaches (4km), artist exhibitions, museums, Puccini Opera Festival in Viareggio (June, July and August), Carnival parades (February in Viareggio and Pietrasanta), theatre festival (Marina di Pietrasanta), European film festival (Lucca, Viareggio) , International Comics Exhibition (End of October in Lucca) and Summer Festival in Lucca (July).

Pietrasanta is called the town of artists where most of them live. Mitoraj Museum will be opened by th end of 2017.

The apartment offers a great base with all the necessary for a comfortable stay in the historical medieval centre full of restaurants, shops, art galleries etc. A visit to the Medici's Villa in Seravezza (UNESCO protection) could be very interesting also for the exhibitions on.

Other Activities: courses for sculptors (artists)
