Beppe and Lia's house is located at 800 meters from the village of Procchio and less than 200 metres from Procchio's beach and from that of Spartaia: it is on a tongue of rock that divides the two gulfs. The white sand beaches gradually descend into the depth of the water, making them ideal for children and for those who lack familiarity with the sea. If you are instead looking for rocks, at the ends of the two beaches there are handy rocks that allow diving but also an easy entrance into the sea. The Rocky and sandy soils have an unmissable opportunity for diving lovers.

The apartment consists of two bedrooms, one double and the other with 1 double bed, from a small bathroom (small, but fully equipped with: wc, sink, bidet, bathtub with shower, window.), a living room with kitchen area (oven with 4 gas rings, fridge with freezer, cupboards, crockery and utensils) with double sofa bed and a habitable terrace overlooking two bays ideal for breakfast and meals. It is on the first floor of a two-family house and to access them you need to make a dozen steps (it is therefore not suitable for the handicapped). No dishwasher, and washing machine is not inside the apartment but in a bathroom adjacent to the apartment below. The parking is below the apartment.

The House was the artist Beppe Lieto (every year the municipality organizes an art Prize in his memory) and his wife Lia Pottjewyd, Dutch physician of the village of Procchio. Originally (up to 60 years ago) was a barn for donkeys which they have slowly expanded and modified. All the furniture that are inside them were given away to friends and acquaintances and the collection is not always homogeneous but definitely original. From all the Windows you can see the sea and the garden around the House is the result of loving and patient work of Lia over the years
