PICCOLO can be rented only together with GRANDE PRATO. If PICCOLO is not rented the Florentine villa owner might use it. The marble table on the veranda of GRANDE PRATO has room for 10 people to enjoy a meal together. Beach, mountains & plenty of culture This property is only a short walk (700 m) from the sandy beach. In nearby Forte dei Marmi (7 km) you are greeted by an impressive backdrop: the long, white sandy beach bordered at the back by the mighty Apuanic Alps. Michelangelo even selected his blocks of marble from among the Forte dei Marmi marble quarries. These are still in operation but Forte dei Marmi is now better known as a bathing resort - one of the most famous beaches in Tuscany, where VIPs have their summer villas and mix (more or less) incognito with the many visitors. The coast is full of many different restaurants with fish as a specialty, while in the mountains beyond, you will find many meat and mushroom dishes. Italian beach-life is usually organised through beach clubs, where you can rent a cabin, a parasol and sunbeds by the day or the week as well as have drinks and snacks at the bar of the stabilimento. This system turns out to be very convenient if you have small children. Mostly you can just show up at the club with no reservation. Those looking for empty beaches will find them only a short walk away (1400 m). Lovers of hidden rocky shores will need to drive down further south but the journey is soon covered along the Via Aurelia. One of the many benefits of this house is its location. It offers a wide range of options: a lively beach holiday near to an exclusive bathing resort, a short trip to the famous Tuscan art cities (our favorite is the very charming Lucca) and - last but not least - the romantic and peaceful mountain villages nestling among the Apuanic Alps - a Hinterland with mountains towering over 1000 m - are just some examples of the attractions in this area. What a pleasant change to the Dolce Vita at the beach! GRANDE PRATO (means 'large lawn') is situated in a quiet, leafy residential area on the edge of Ronchi, 7 km from Forte dei Marmi. The property is around 900 m2, with this delightful red house standing in the middle. The house is divided into two units: GRANDE PRATO is the main section of this detached villa. It measures 100 sqm and offers ample room for 6 adults. At extra charge another slightly smaller section of the villa, PICCOLO, for 6 extra guests can be rented additionally. It measures 75 sqm and is suitable for 4 adults plus 2 children. The house is pleasantly cool during the hot summer months (windows have shutters in all rooms). If you are travelling with a large group, the marble table on the covered veranda has room for 10 people to enjoy a meal together. At the back of the house, you will find a large, neat lawn with several trees and flower beds. The property is fenced in and the garden is surrounded by a thick hedge providing a secluded and private atmosphere. From the garden you have views of the Apuanic Alps. The house has a gravel parking to the front (room for 5 vehicles). Regional information Versilia is the good 40 km long coastline between Carrara and Viareggio. One doesn't usually visit Tuscany for bathing but particularly in spring and fall it is still great fun to enjoy the empty beaches of the Versilia. Even in summer - with the exception of August - it is never as full here as it is elsewhere. Protected from the wind by the mountains, a wide, fine sandy beach stretches alongside the sea. After those of Maremma, the Versilia beaches - at Marina di Massa, Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Pietrasanta, Lido di Camaiore and Viareggio - are by far the most beautiful along the 330 kilometer Tuscan coastline. They are also very chilMore
