Resort: Villa Ricetro

Villa Ricetro is a 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 offers beautiful views across to the Torre del Lago, or Puccini lake and even the sea. From the property there is easy access to Camaiore and Lucca. Within walking distance is the little nearby village with a couple of restaurants. This is a great location to visit the Puccini Opera festival held every summer near the lake.
In the perfectly maintained garden there is a 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 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, Torre del Lago, or Puccini lake and even the sea.  The pool is not completely private, the pool of Antica Poesia is situated next to it.
The pool is a prefabricated, irregular shaped pool. It is surrounded by a lovely wooden sun deck which is furnished with sun beds. Around the pool area there are also a couple of tables with chairs and umbrellas. Slightly above it is a small covered terrace.
The pool is salt cleanse and measures 7x4.7 metres with a depth of 1.2 metres. It is open from May through October, weather permitting. To one side iron steps provide access to the cool, crystal water.

Rundum zufrieden mit dem Haus, den Eigentümern, dem Pool, dem Garten. Gewöhnungsbedürftig ist die Zufahrt zum Haus, aber mit den freundlichen Bewohnern ist auch die engste Strasse zu meistern.
Local attractions In diesem Jahr standen Lucka und Carrara auf dem Programm. Sehenswert. Gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Lucka. Strand in Camaiore super.

Een prachtige faciliteit tegen een villa aan in een groene en rustige omgeving.
Een ruime tuin erbij die je moet delen met nog twee huisjes.
Veilige tuin, ook voor kinderen. Afsluitbaar hek om de tuin heen.
Wel gehorig, omdat een enkele deur de scheiding is met huisje ernaast.
Interessant om met meerdere gezinnen alle drie huisjes te huren.
Local attractions Restaurants niet echt bekend, maar plaatsen als Lido di Camaiore, Marina di Pisa zijn plm 15-20 km rijden en daar kun je heerlijk op het strand liggen. Lucca is heel dichtbij, 15 minuten en heeft veel bezienswaardigheden.

schön gestaltete und eingerichtete Wohnung mit sehr schönem Bad.
Leider weder im Schlafzimmer noch auf dem Gartensitzplatz Privatsphäre - man hört und versteht jedes Wort der nachbarn auf beiden Seiten. Im Schlafzimmer ist die türe zu Francesca 2 nicht isoliert. Zwischen den Gartensitzplätzen hat es notdürftigen Sichtschutz mit Löchern.
Die Siedlung liegt an einer unübersichtlichen Kreuzung - es wir ständig gehupt.
Die Pool-Terrasse mit Aussicht und Grillgelegenheit ist sehr schön

The owner reports that the separating hedge has suffered during the hot summer. This is already starting to recover back. The owner has confirmed that there is a soundproof panel between the villas.

Wir waren schon mehrmals in der Toskana, vor allem in Ferienwohnung.
Dieses war mit Abstand die Beste. Sehr komfortabel, nicht weit zu bekannten Städten oder zum Strand, mit genug Privatsphähre im Terassenbereich.
Nicht zu vergessen der sehr schön gestaltete Poolbereich.
Local attractions Camaiore: Ein richtig schönes Einkaufsstädtchen, mit vielen Restaurant und Fussgängerzone. Haben wir leider erst am letzten Tag entdeckt.

OWNER COMMENT: We thank you for the compliment on the cleanliness of the house. We apologize that we have forgotten to add a reading lamp. It is true that in the rainy days the house is a little dark. In fact we are going to put a skylight to make the house bright.

The villa, and surrounding courtyard, was lovely and the view from the pool area incredible. Staying here was like my dream of living in Italy. The local town of Camaiore is charming, and the drive from there, up the mountain, is breathtakingly beautiful. The villa location is perfect for day trips and wonderful to come back to late afternoon for a glass of wine and relaxing in the courtyard. I could not of chosen a better place for my stay in Italy and I look forward to returning!
Local attractions Day trips to Lucca, Pisa, Viareggio, San Miniato and Cinque Terre. The open market in Camaiore on the weekend!!
