Lots of room to spread out in this villa - the self-contained apartment across the courtyard is a real asset, and there is a table inside and outside to eat at. The owners and their agent were helpful and friendly and eager to answer any queries. Four bikes were provided which came in very useful - we cycled to the opera as the Puccini Festival was on in nearby Torre Del Lago. The only problem is that the house had no air-con, only the apartment so it did get hot at night. Viareggio provided a good base for us to visit Lucca and Pisa by train. Would recommend the restaurant Amaro Braceria - good food and friendly service. Several good bakeries and supermarkets within walking distance of the house.
