  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the house "il Melo" the first week of September 2012.The house was much more than we expected it to be. It was fully equipped. There are two bedrooms with a double beds. With a spectacular view. So staying here with 2 adults and 2 kids is nice especially because there are also two bathrooms. The outside of the house is really nice. You can have dinner on the terrace or balcony overlooking the hills. The swimming pool was nice. Internet and TV is working fine. If you have nice weather it is the best place to be!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the holiday house "il Melo" in the cosy but remote village of Prota. The house is located on a beautiful spot with a great view. The house was fully equipped as promised. The swimming pool was nice with warm water. Also the restaurant in the village was excellent.

We give this place 4/5 overall; for the fifth point missing there were a few minor issues. The air in the bedrooms downstairs was a bit too moist, although the bedrooms were nice and cool. The neighbor's dog, although friendly and sweet, likes to bark a lot. The garden was not as private as you might assume by seeing the pictures.

Anyhow, it was a charming spot to spend your holiday!

  • 5 of 5

"Nous avons séjourné une semaine en juillet dans cette location. Elle se trouve dans un tout petit village de colline (Prota). Compter 20 à 30 min de voiture tout de même depuis la ville (moyenne) la plus proche, Aulla. Compter également 3 à 4 degrés de moins qu''à la côte. L''intérieur de la maison est conforme aux photos, donc tout à fait correct. L''équipement de la cuisine est un peu limité (une cafetière électrique serait bienvenue par exemple, de même nous avons manqué d''un peu de vaisselle). Les lits sont de bonne qualité. Je confirme le commentaire concernant l''humidité des chambres même si cela ne nous a pas trop gêné. Je peux également confirmer le fait que le jardin n''est pas si privatif qu''espéré : d''un coté passe le chemin communal et de l''autre un simple grillage sépare le jardin de celui du voisin. Ce voisin s''est d''ailleurs montré fort désagréable lors de notre séjour, jusqu''à se disputer avec nous ! C''est un vieux monsieur qui est fort vite gêné par notre utilisation (très normale je le précise) de la piscine et du jardin ! Les enfants ont été impressionnés et n''ont pas utilisé la piscine comme ils l''auraient voulus. Par ailleurs le chien de ce voisin n''a de cesse de gémir et d''aboyer tout au long de la journée. Fatiguant. Cela a malheureusement constitué le point noir de notre séjour dans une location que, pour le prix demandé, nous ne recommandons pas.

The house is located in a medieval village amidst the hills and is abpout 25 min from the motorway exit of Aulla.

Set in a very tranquil scenery , yet close enough to the beaches from Viareggio and Liguria, this house offers a relaxing and peacefull retreat.

The village of Prota has a small shop, coffebar and restaurant and the nearby villages of Licciana Nardi and Comano offer a good selection of amenities.

Airports: Pisa 1h10min, Genova 1h 20 min, Parma 1h 10 min.

Great house for relaxing holiday immersed in the green hills from north-east Tuscany.

Ideally located for practising trekking and mountain biking and still only 45 min away from the beaches of Viareggio and Liguria.
