Francesca 1 is a romantic Tuscan villa, attached on either side to another villa. Immediately outside it has a small, lawned garden which is furnished with a table and chairs with umbrella.
Inside there is a large open plan room with traditional Tuscan villa features such as the wooden beam and terracotta ceiling, and exposed stone walls. The entire villa is paved in large modern terracotta tiles. Across half the room is a wooden mezzanine floor. Immediately on entering is a dining table which seats six.
Below the mezzanine floor is a comfortable lounge area. A double sofa and wicker armchair are huddled around an open fireplace made of the local stone. To one side is a TV. To the back of the room is a bathroom with shower.
The kitchenette is to the front of the room and has two windows above the work area, looking out into the garden. It has built-in units and is fully equipped, including gas hobs, oven and a large fridge with separate freezer compartment.
Wooden steps lead up to the mezzanine floor where there is the double bedroom. To one side is a small dressing room with a wooden wardrobe and a matching chest of drawers. Light is provided by a window in the dressing room.


The mezzanine floor is open over the living area and looks down on the kitchen and dining area.
Francesca 1 has a sturdy intercommunicating door to Francesca 2. Should a guest book both villas, this can be opened.

Location: Villa Ricetro

Villa Ricetro is a small collection of Tuscan villas located in the hills overlooking the plains of Viareggio. There are pretty views of the forest covered hills surrounding the estate and glimpses of the plains beyond. From the property there is easy access to Camaiore and Lucca. Within walking distance is the little nearby village with a couple of restaurants.
In the perfectly maintained garden there is a small fenced pool area. This is located a short distance away, down a slope in the garden. It's a lovely area with plenty of furnishings to relax under the warm Tuscan sun.
Within the garden there is a shared, stone barbeque and a pizza oven near which is a table and chairs. The three villas each also have their own private areas, directly in front of their entrances which are furnished.

Pool Info

The pool is located about 10metres away from the villas in a fully fenced area on a lower level of the garden. From the area there are fantastic views of the forest covered hills, just beyond, on clear days, it is possible to see the plains of Viareggio.

Pros De ruimte in de woning was zeer groot en de badkamer was mooi en prettig in gebruik.
De extra bergruimte met wasmachine, naast de badkamer was ook handig.
Het meubilair in de woning was mooi en het tweepersoonsbed sliep heerlijk!
De keuken was goed en uitgebreid uitgerust, met vriezer.
Het is in de woning vrij donker, maar er is veel verlichting met overal schakelaars.
Wifi verbinding werkte prima.
We hebben er, afgezien van het weer een prima week gehad!
Cons Een handleiding voor de afstandsbedieningen van de televisie was fijn geweest. Helaas hadden we tijdens ons verblijf van 1 week slecht weer, met veel regen en onweer. We hebben hierdoor geen gebruik gemaakt van het zwembad. In het tuintje vonden wij de privacy wat minder. De gasten van de andere 2 woningen lopen langs Francesca 1 om naar de uitgang en het zwembad te gaan. Het huis ligt behoorlijk afgelegen, je hebt absoluut een auto nodig en ook goede stuurkunsten met alle smalle en bochtige weggetjes.
Local attractions Restaurant "Le Meraviglie" in Montemagno, onderaan het bergweggetje is een zeer goed restaurant met vriendelijke bediening. Van dit restaurant ligt er een kaartje in de woning. Absolute aanrader, maar reserveren is wel noodzakelijk. Bij Ristorante e Pizzeria "Zenzero" in de hoofdstraat van Camaiore (Via Vittorio Emanuele 62) hebben wij ook heel erg goed gegeten! Gezellig met buitenterrasje aan de straat en in de steeg. Een bezoekje aan de marmergroeven en het marmermuseum in Carrara vonden wij erg indrukwekkend. Vanuit Portovenere hebben we met de boot een bezoek gebracht aan Cinque Terre. Erg mooi! Lucca is zeer zeker de moeite van een bezoek waard! Charmante stad met heel veel winkeltjes! De stranden van Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi en Marina di Carrara zijn wat minder toegangelijk. Wij hebben geen openbaar strand kunnen vinden. De hele kustlijn bestaat uit clubs, Een uurtje naar het strand met je eigen handdoekje is er (helaas) niet mogelijk.
