la dolce vita
Mara, Laura et toute la famille ont réellement le sens de l'accueil, et le soucis du bien être de leurs locataires. A peine arrivés, nous étions conviés pour un verre de bienvenue et une dégustation de spécialités toscanes concoctées par la famille , un pur bohneur . Véhicule indispensable car situé dans les collines ( quoi de mieux..) la terrasse est trés agréable , avec le charme des oliviers . Les commerces ne sont qu'à 10 minutes en voiture, proche de Lucca , un village typique et trés athypique. Non loin de Florence, Vinci , Isola santa, marina di vecchio......et à 3 h de Venise pour une escapade à 2 ;)
Lovely place to stay
This was a beautiful apartment in a lovely setting. The apartment was modern, spacious, well equipped and had wonderful views. We really enjoyed eating on the terrace outside the apartment. Prato Verde restaurant was excellent. It was great having it so close but also that you could order food from there to take back to the apartment. The family were friendly and welcoming and my daughter and I enjoyed a happy morning in the kitchen at the restaurant learning to cook delicious Tuscan food. The pool was clean, well kept and much enjoyed by our daughter. We had a very relaxing week and enjoyed staying here enormously. Lucca is just a short drive from here but generally the apartment is well away from the hustle and bustle of the sightseeing crowds. A car is essential and a confident driver to tackle the winding hill road to reach this lovely place.
We found this property to be very isolated at the top of a single lane corkscrew road. We expected there to be a selection of bars and restaurants to walk to but there was nothing apart from the owner's own bar/ restaurant. My elderly mother was traumatised by the road and numerous steps leading to the apartment but unfortunately the owner was not very sympathetic. We clocked the distance to Viareggio beach at 15km not 7.9km as stated. Not impressed.
Relaxing Summer Touch Down with delicious Dinners
We have had a very nice stay at the Geranio. We were two Adults and two grown children and a good well educated dog, which is ofthe same rass like the dog of Mara (border collie). We enjoyed very much the dinners at the restaurant and as well the nice landscape arround the restaurant and the two houses with the appartements. We would recommend to do a walk to the villages naer by on the hills to the place of the churche. As well we stayed at the beach MARINA DI VECCHIANO. So enjoy yout holidays there and best whiches.
Two wonderful weeks in Tuscany
We had apartment Geranio for 2 adults and a teenage boy. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and equipped with everything we needed. We really liked the clean pool with the beautiful sight and the sunny terrace in front of the apartment.
For us, the stay at Holiday Prato Verde was perfect because Mara and the Angeli family where very friendly and we always felt comfortable, many of the famous places and cities are within a day-trip reach and the site is perfect for a lazy day with pool, books and barbecue.
Many thank for a wonderful holidays
Wonderful time with excellent staff
We have had an excellent trip in Chiatri. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, they spared no effort to make us feel comfortable. The appartment was clean, comfortable, and fully equipped.
Rates in the restaurant are very reasonable (dish: 5-10 euro, wine of the house: 5 euro), so we re-evaluated our plans to cook ourselves.
When we return to northern Tuscany, I would definitely try to book again here.
Many thanks Mara & family!!
Chiatri, a small village near Lucca, it is situated on the hills overlooking the coastline of Viareggio and is surrounded by woods, olive groves and chestnut trees. This small village still preserves its ancient Tuscan characteristics with its small groups of houses built on different hill peaks.
Chiatri is well known for its chestnuts and for wild boar hunting in winter, and above all for Giacomo Puccini’s villa. Here, in fact, the famous composer used to spend much of his free time receiving friends, hunting in the woods and getting inspiration for his work. It is here in his villa overlooking the lake of Massaciuccoli and the sea that Puccini composed his worldwide famous opera La Tosca.
Chiatri is situated in a fantastic position as it is midway between the medieval town of Lucca and Pisa with its famous leaning tower. It is just about 7 km from the beaches of Viareggio and Versilia and hardly an hour from Florence, the capital of art, Montecatini with its famous spa.
