Villas Dodi & Iana are wonderful retreats for any holiday rental in Tuscany. The spacious homes are newly built, modern villas situated in the picturesque town of Pietrasanta. They sit in a pretty residential area nestled at the foot of the Alpi Apuane, half way between Pietrasanta old town and Marina di Pietrasanta - that's only 2 miles from the famous Versilia beaches. These 'twin', semi-detached properties have the same layout & facilities and are spread over 3 floors; the ground floor includes a lounge with plasma TV & DVD player, WC, well equipped kitchen and 2 double bedrooms with en suites - one with whirlpool bath and shower, the other with a shower enclosure. Both the kitchen and lounge lead onto a relaxing portico, perfect for al fresco dining (seats 8). The taverna (basement) where the temperatures are cooler in summer has a further lounge and kitchen, a dining area and an additional bathroom plus a utility room with washing machine. The loft is light and airy with 2 further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. There is air conditioning throughout and mosquito nets on all windows & doors. There are landscaped gardens with 2 sun loungers per villa, electronic gates, parking & the villas share a driveway.
Beach / pools: Versilia is famous for its beautiful wide, golden, sandy beaches. There are many private bathing establishments or 'bagni' - these are full service beaches many of which have fantastic pools, as well as the usual umbrellas, 'tende', sun loungers, deck chairs and cabins. They also have restaurants, cafes, bars and many other excellent facilities. It is highly recommended to pre-book your beach before arriving in Pietrasanta. Our villas are situated only 100m from the cycle path that takes you directly to the beach under the protection of a beautiful tree lined boulevard.
Viareggio Carnival: Villa Dodi and Villa Iana are great bases to experience the famous Viareggio Carnival. This spectacular event - one of the finest and grandest in Italy takes place throughout Mardi Gras each year (and repeated on a smaller scale during August). Celebrations include a wide programme of entertainment and fun for adults and children, the famous papier mache floats; works of art in themselves that take a year to create, parades, performances, public festivities and masques balls. A fantastic event not to be missed!
