A perfect holiday in a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

An amazing, beautiful and very peaceful spot. Francesca 2 is a great, spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment with some rustic and some period features. The views from the bedrooms are fantastic as are the ones over the hills from the swimming pool. The pool is set in cosy and well arranged grounds. There is an outdoor shower and a second bbq. The main bbq is in the garden. The warm hospitality and availability of the hosts, Alessandro and Francesca, really made our stay special and relaxed. At the bottom of the hill there are a couple of restaurants definitely worth the visit. Pisa, Lucca, the sea and the surrounding area are easily accessible by car. Will be recommending to all.

Perfect holidays

  • 5 of 5

It was a great holiday and we enjoyed our week in Francesca 2 and 3 very much. The appartements are lovely and we found everything there was needed for a perfect vacacion with our children. As the weather was hot during our visit we used the swimming pool very much. Francesca and Alessandro are perfect and warm hosts and we hope to meet them again.

This is one of the best places I have ever been to. It is an old farmhouse which has been meticulously renovated with attention to every detail possible. It is a true gem in the Tuscan hills not far from the beach resort Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore. It is important to have a car as the village is quite small but has two fantastic restaurants. We simply loved every moment of our holiday and would like to extend a huge thank you to the kind and hospitable hosts.

Excellent stay

  • 4 of 5

Dear Alessandro and Francesca,

We would like to thank you again for our excellent stay in your appartment. The house is fully equiped, everything you could possibly need is there (dishwasher, microwave, washingmachine etc). We enjoyed the tomatoes from the garden, that was a kind welcome. We spend a great time with our two boys and we could easily visit the hotspots in the area (cinque terre, Lucca, Pisa, grotta del vento). Unfortunately the weather was not so good, but we can image that in summer we would use the pool too! What an excellent view! We would recommand this place certainly.

Kind regards, Carla and Jorrit

Entspannte Ferien im wunderschöner Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Oktober 2012 für eine Woche zu viert in dieser gemütlichen Wohnung. Sie liegt in einem 5-Häuserdorf oberhalb Camaiore. Gleich vom Haus aus kann man wandern oder den Tag am Pool und im Garten genießen.

Wir hatten Glück und es war warm genug (für die Kinder zumindest) im Pool zu schwimmen, auch das Meer in Viareggio ist sehr nah und lockte uns zu einem Badeausflug.

Alles in allem ist es eine gut eingerichtete, großzügige Ferienwohnung in traumhafte Lage mit tollem Ausblick. Das Minidorf Ricerto ist ruhig gelegen, keine Durchgangsverkehr, aber in 10 Minuten Fußweg erreicht man Montemagno (auch sehr klein) mit zwei-drei Pizzaria (da Franco, fanden wir toll) und Mini-Alimentari. In Camaiore findet man dann Supermarkt.
