Location, location - walk to town yet surrounded by peaceful green hills with stunning panoramic views in all directions. Villa Il Pino is the ideal base to relax in beautiful natural surroundings with a deli/bread shop/bar and trattoria a few short moments walk. We regularly dined on the the balcony there and in our opinion the food was worthy of four stars and the view down the valley to Camaiore and the Lucca hills unforgettable. The ancient town of Camaiore with it's charming churches, famouse delicatessans and authentic local trattorias is 1200 metres however the walk is steeply uphill on the return.
Given such an idyllic setting it is hard to believe that Tuscany’s golden coast with it's pristine beaches is just a short drive away. In addition, art and history lovers will find numerous towns and villages to visit in the neighbourhood, including enchanting Pietrasanta and food and wine lovers will rediscover age-old dishes and have the opportunity to try out new flavours in this area renowned as a gourmets paradise.
Villa Pino is reached via a private driveway with no passing traffic. There is a large grassy play area next to the villa where guests can play tennis/ball games.
The accommodation is arranged as two separate units joined by a external stone steps offering space and privacy for two families or a group of friends travelling together.
Well maintained interiors, furnished in simple, country style ideal for summer living.
Large grassy play area private to the villa.The gated pool complex with changing room, shower and WC is separated from the house by the private driveway making the house a good choice for families with young children. Children should always be supervised at all times.
The poolside area is lush, with olive trees, the blossom of oleanders and enjoys enchanting panoramic views over the gentle surrounding hills. Our guests here have appreciated this charming accommodation combined with an idyllic country setting yet so close to Camaiore town, the sea and historic Tuscan towns.
There is a small grocery store (selling local produce and fresh bread) a typical simple bar just only 3 minutes easy walk from the house. You can walk into Camaiore centre in about 20 minutes where you will find many restaurants, bars, shops, market and banks but remember the walk back is steep uphill.

Pietrasanta is one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Loved by locals and Italians yet relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists. From revelling in the artistic treasures and architectural wonders of the old town square to enjoying a glass of full-bodied red beside a hillside of olive trees or soaking up the sun on the wide golden beaches of Versilia, Pietrasanta's kaleidoscope of pleasures will intoxicate your mind and enrich your soul any time of the year.
Charming and stylish, Pietarsanta is now the haunt of the internationally famous (Sir Paul Smith loves the Enotecca restaurant and so does Gina Lollobridgiga. See what Sir Paul Smith had to say about Pietrasanta in the Sunday Times Magazine here) Henry More, Bottero (the Spanish artist whose paunchy warrior guards the entrance to the village), Mitoraj have all spent time working here and exhibiting their works of art, but then, we knew it first! Bridgewater make paths for others to follow! The town is abundant with authentic restaurants serving food to satisfy the most discerning of pallets and café life spills out on to the square. Both days and evenings can be idyllically passed away in this charming medieval town perhaps with a cappuccino or glass of local wine in your hand. Traffic is mostly banned, allowing the artists to set up their easels in the street and show off their latest masterpieces.
From nearby Forte dei Marmi it is possible to take boats daily trips to the Cinque Terre, Portofino, Elba Island, Capraia Islan. Rennaisance Florence and charming Siena are only an hour away from Pietrasanta, Pisa with its famous leaning tower is 30 minutes drive, the ancient walled city of Lucca is 20 minutes by car, The marble Caves of Carrara are a short distance and Puccini’s villa where he lived wrote his operas on Torre del Lago is only 20 minutes drive.
