Lovely house perfect for a holiday in Viareggio

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, very private and well-equipped, just right for a perfect holiday based in Viareggio, close to the beach, station and all amenities. The owners are very nice and helpful, and were always available if we needed them for any reason.

Great property, excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Paola's Shell and had a wonderful time. A beautifully decorated house in an excellent location close to beach, shops and restaurants and within walking distance of the station. We made good use of the bakery across the road and the supermarket round the corner. A car is not necessary here we used the train to visit Lucca, Pisa and Florence, which are all worth a visit or two.

The beach is a 2 minute walk away and provides everything you need for a day in the sun.

The house was comfortable and very clean. Paola and Alessandro were the perfect hosts and were extremely helpful when a doctor was required.

We ate well at Sa Playa (you must book) and at a great pizzeria in Shelley Square.

We would stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending Paola's Shell to our friends.

Fijn huis en centraal gelegen

  • 5 of 5

Als moeder en dochter een week lang genoten vanuit dit geweldig gelegen en toch rustige vakantiehuis in Viareggio.

Aanvulling op vorige recensies:

-Heel makkelijk aan te reizen via Pisa Airport, nieuwe lightrail ‘Pisamover’ in 8 minuten naar Pisa centraal station. Rijdt iedere 10 min.

-10 min lopen vanaf station Viareggio. Treinen naar o.a. Cinque Terre, Pisa, Lucca, Montecatini Terme, goede verbindingen en goedkoop, download de Engelstalige Trenìt –App voor de actuele dienstregeling.

-Strand is vlakbij. In het hoogseizoen allemaal privéstranden, waar je een plaats kunt huren met parasol en ligbedden. Per plaats ongeveer €15/dag. In het voorseizoen was er bij hotel Principe di Piemonte een mooi vrij toegankelijk strand, te voet bereikbaar. Meer vrije stranden een eind naar het zuiden, met auto of fiets bereikbaar.

- In het grote park vlakbij (Pineta di Ponente) zijn prima fietsen te huur bij Patrizia (no. 2)

Het huis is sfeervol ingericht en superschoon. Foto’s en beschrijving kloppen helemaal, behalve dat het eenpersoonsbed een stapelbed is geworden. Alles werkt goed, prima wifi, keukenuitrusting o.k.

Alleen matras/bodem van tweepersoonsbed vonden we veel te zacht, doorgegeven aan de eigenaar, wordt naar gekeken.

Paola en Alessandro zijn erg gastvrij, spreken prima Engels, staan na een sms-je gelijk klaar en geven veel privacy.

Paola & Alessandro, abbiamo avuto un soggiorno bellissimo. Grazie mille per l’ospitalità, speriamo di ritornare una volta! Cordiali saluti, Jet & Angela

très bonne adresse

  • 4 of 5

logement très bien situé, très propre, bien agencé.

Propriétaires très sympathiques.

Logement à 300-400m de la plage, et proche de toutes les commodités.

Parking facile dans la rue (en décembre-janvier) mais payant à la journée ou à l'heure.

Owner's Response: The distance from the beach is not 300-400mt, but only about 100mt as every one can see on google map street view mode (the home address is Via Venti Settembre n.28). Parking in front of the house are under municipal management and are not free; anyway you can subscribe a weekly parking pass at the cost of 20 euro. We are happy to have guested you in our Paola's Shell. Come back any time you want.

a good holiday house in Viareggio

  • 4 of 5

Paola's shell is a comfortable holiday house in the Centre of Viareggio near beach and shops.

The house is complete and clean and has a quiet garden.

Only the Wifi was very disappointing ; it is only available in a corner of the garden, not in the house.

Paula promised to improve this.

We liked to stay in Paola's shell and will come back.

greetings Hetty and Paul

Owner's Response: Hi Paul, thanks for the feedback! Next year you will be welcome again in our Paola's shell. Our technician is powering the wi-fi net and we will have a 100 mega one soon. Alessandro & Paola

The house has independent access on the road and a private entrance to the property through the gate and passageway.

Paola's Shell has an excellent location, since it is located in the heart of Viareggio, near the sea and close to the most famous restaurants of the city. Also a few kilometers away are the very well known Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta. Finally, only thirty minutes guests can easily reach Lucca and Pisa, rich in history and culture who daily tell visiting tourists.
