We had a great stay
The location of the apartment across from a park was lovely and inviting. What stood out for us was the wonderful suggestions we received from the owners. We used the apartment as a base to get to well-known spots like Cinque Terre, Lucca and Pisa, but what we truly loved was our visits to places we never would have discovered on our own such as Pietrasanta and Vinci. The 2 bedroom apartment was adequate for the 3 of us and would work for 4 as well. It was clean and neat. The owners were very kind and helpful from our first correspondence to our leaving. It is reasonably priced. (for a stay in May 2013)
Great apartment in an excellent region
If you are looking for a nice apartment in a peaceful location, within a large Italian beach resort; then Casetta in Versilia will be ideal for you.
The apartment is immaculately clean and has just about everything you will need. The family who rent it met us and could not have been nicer. It is not one of those apartments that has only 4 plates, 4 glasses and only the most basic of items etc.. In fact, it feels more like you have borrowed a good friends apartment rather than taking a rental. If you wished to, you could cook all your meals in the apartment.
The apartment comes with free access and umbrella on the beach (Umbrella 2x loungers and a chair) plus the use of a lovely personal beach changing room. This is a big plus, as it can be very very expensive getting access onto the beach! The beach is a 5 minute stroll from the apartment. It also has its own car parking space which is again important as
The resort is quite large and has a long promenade with shops and restaurants. From our personal experience it seemed to be mainly occupied by Italians on holiday.
We hired a car at Pisa airport and found Viareggio a really good area for exploring, with Pisa, Lucca (very nice) and Carrera each only about 30 minutes away. We also visited Portovenere, a picturesque coastal town - possibly best to visit mid week as its very busy at the weekend. Also approximately an hour away was the area know as Cinque Terra which is also meant to be beautiful.
A very nice apartment and very glad that we chose it! (20/07/2011)

Nous avons été chaleureusement acceuillis par le propriétaire qui avait pris le soin de nous indiquer les lieux importants autour de notre logement (shopping, apéritivi, gare, plage,...). La plage n''est qu''à 5 min à pied, des transats et une cabine nous sont réservés. Le quartier est très paisible et propice au repos. Viareggio est bien situé si nous voulons faire des city trip (Firenze, Lucca, Cinque Terre,...) A recommander! (03/09/2010)
