About Maria Gargioli Torre

I am a lady who has passed the age of fifty, I worked in fashion for most of my life. I lived for many years in Milan and Paris, I decided to return to live in the family home here in Marina di Massa, where, today, I live alone with a little old dog. I love dogs and I am happy to welcome them here where they can stay free in the garden, I just ask the owners to be careful they don't make holes in the yard or spoil the plants flower.

Maria Gargioli Torre purchased this house in 1990

Why Maria Gargioli Torre chose Marina di Massa

I decided to rent a part of my property because I like to meet new people who come here from many parts of Europe. I really enjoy having the opportunity to speak French and English.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located yet secluded, private garden, carport, barbecue, gazebo. Pretty apartment is equipped with every convenience and comfort, and the patio with table, chairs and umbrella, it makes a whole exterior and interior. Ideal vacation spot for a couple with one or two children and an adult, but it is not big enough for 4 adults.

It reaches the sea on foot in 10 minutes, but the holiday is made even more enjoyable for the possibility of free use of bicycles. To consider the proximity to the highway in 3 minutes by car.

Wir fanden eine sehr schöne und gepflegte Wohnung vor.

  • 5 of 5

Es gab Begrüssungsgetränke für die Kinder und Eltern im Kühlschrank. Ebenfalls hatte Ersilia einen Obstteller vorbereitet.

Die Wohnung ist in einem Topf Zustand und das Badezimmer war neu.

Ebenfalls besonders zu erwähnen sind die Fahrräder, die wir für die Fahrten zum Strand nutzten.

Ersilia ist eine sehr höfliche und umsorgen Vermieterin.

Wir kommen wieder!

La casa non corrisponde alla descrizione, fatta eccezione per la camera da letto (abbastanza spaziosa) il resto dei locali è angusto e poco confortevole, sembra ricavato da un sottoscala (forse è questa la ristrutturazione di cui si parla). La zona esterna dedicata a chi soggiorna non è male, ma buona parte di ciò che si vede in foto è dei proprietari e dell'inquilino del piano superiore con cui ho anche dovuto discutere per un parcheggio che sosteneva essere suo ma che la proprietaria dell'appartamento aveva assegnato a noi (mah?!)

I proprietari a mio avviso poco chiari, alla fine del soggiorno sostenevano di non aver ricevuto alcuna cauzione da parte nostra tentando di trattenersi la cifra in questione.

Marina di Massa oltretutto non è gran cosa.

Owner's Response: Il mio bilocale è conforme alla descrizione e alle foto, prova ne sono le svariate testimonianze positive (27 su 30) che da 5 anni sono presenti sul sito di Homelidays. Tutte le foto pubblicate appartengono al bilocale che affitto come casa vacanza, sia l'interno che l'esterno. Il giardino appartenente alla casa vacanza è recintato ed è chiaramente delimitato come si può vedere dalle foto.. L'appartamento e di 45 mq. non può ospitare 6 persone ma, al massimo, 4. Il giardino attiguo, dove si trova il barbecue e un salottino da giardino riparato da un grande olivo, è ad uso esclusivo degli affittuari. Per quanto riguarda la cauzione, succede che gli inquilini, arrivando il sabato, paghino solo una parte del saldo ed il resto viene rimandato ai giorni successivi e questo può causare qualche dimenticanza, ma io preferisco perdere la cauzione piuttosto che alimentare una discussione. Infatti, quest'anno, ho scelto la prenotazione on line con il saldo, compresa la cauzione, 15 gg. prima dell'arrivo. Per la macchina vi sono 2 posti auto coperti ed un cortile in comune con l’inquilino del piano superiore che non vi abita e viene solo saltuariamente e non è proprietario di alcunchè, ed io non sono responsabile della sua educazione, ma non ci saranno più malintesi.

Très bon accueil par Maria et son fils, qui parlent très bien le français et font tout pour rendre le séjour agréable. L'appartement est très bien situé et pourtant au calme, totalement conforme à la description sur Abritel.

Nous avons randonné dans les Cinque Terre depuis La Spezia, visité Lerici, Pise,...

Un beau séjour. Merci Maria.

Je suis contente, aussi, que vous avez bien profité de vos vacances pour visiter les plus endroits possibles. Notre position géographique est très stratégique pour visiter à la fois la région Toscane et la Ligurie.

In the hours of sunset or after dinner, it is a pleasure to walk on the pier, a meeting place for lovers of fishing, especially in the early morning; during the summer is the place where you can catch every morning for boat trips to the beautiful villages of Lerici, Portovenere and the 5 Terre, where you can move in your car because they can be reached at less than a half hour.
