Hayloft is the only apartment on two levels. The ground floor has a living room with a fireplace and small kitchen. In the upper floor there are two bedrooms, bathroom with a shower, and the washing machine. One bedroom has a large double bed the other bedroom has two twin beds.
A private outside dining table.
In Forte dei Marmi much has changed during the succeeding five centuries, but the basic architectural integrity of the original structure of the villa remains, and the ambience of the old olive grove continues to influence the entire property.Villa Maria Doria began in the 1500’s as a country farmhouse in the middle of a large olive grove located in a unique corner of Tuscany. It is both near to the Tyrrhenian Sea and close to the Appuan Alps.
The Villa offers five independent apartments each with private outside dining table.
We have refurbished and modernized the property and added a large swimming pool.
The small village of Pozzi where the Villa Maria Doria is located, sits in a privileged geographical position midway between the charming Apuan Alps and the Versilia riviera.
Pozzi is of considerable archaeological importance for remains of a Etruscan settlement, dating from 6th Century B.C., were found here and can be seen in the archaeological museum in Pietrasanta.
Also, during the Renaissance noble Florentine families, including the Medici, chose this area for their summer residence. Local historians think that the Villa Maria Doria was built around 500 years ago as that is the age of the olive trees that surround it.
Over the years the buildings have been re-structured to accommodate contemporary life-styles but bits of history can still be found on the existing buildings.
There are facilities for recreation and activity on the grounds itself, plus, in the surrounding area you will find world class shopping, restaurants offering traditional Tuscan cooking and beach life at Forte dei Marmi and the coast.
Within a short drive you will find major historical sights like: Pietrasanta, Carrara, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano and Volterra. Also available are sporting activities like golf, hiking, biking, and water sports. Vacation life is made easy because whatever you need can be found nearby.
Wir haben uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Apartment war sehr sauber und der Garten ein wahrer Traum. Die Villa liegt mitten im Ort und ist durch den Garten doch eine andere Welt. Unseren Kindern hat vor allem der Pool sehr gefallen. Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und hatte auf Nachfrage immer Tipps parat. Nach Pisa sind wir z. B. mit dem Zug gefahren, was sehr entspannend war (Bahnhof ist zu Fuß erreichbar). Kleine Einkäufe kann man im Ort erledigen, ansonsten braucht man das Auto. Ans Meer sind wir immer südl. von Viareggio gefahren, da es dort einen freien Strand im Naturschutzgebiet gibt.
It was really a wonderful holiday.
E' stato un magnifico soggiorno, trascorso in un appartamento particolare rustico. Bellissimo svegliarsi e aprire la finestra e vedere un fantastico giardino pieno di fiori e magnifica vegetazione....un po' come un "giardino segreto"...
Sarebbe ideale trascorrere un altro soggiorno nel periodo estivo così da sfruttare anche la splendida piscina che hanno nell'immenso parco verde. Se mai dovessimo tornare sicuramente ci farebbe piacere ritornare lì....anche per l'ottima posizione.
Grazie Paola a presto.
