"A great apartment in an authentic Italian seaside town with good access for exploring Tuscany"

The Penthouse is located in the pretty town of Carrara which offers a real Italian experience.

The Penthouse is ideally located within easy access to the local amenities. The lovely sandy beach with good facilities is also within walking distance.

The apartment was ideal for us as a family of four; light, airy, private and clean. The bedrooms were spacious with plenty storage and the kitchen was well equiped for self catering.

For those, like us, wishing to explore Tuscany, Carrara is an ideal base. Information was available at the apartment regarding the places of interest around the area; we found this very useful. There is a bus stop next to the house en route to the train station, however, the train station is within walking distance. We found the train service to be very accessible for exploring; avoiding the hassle of hiring, driving and parking a car!

We hope to go back again soon and explore some more!
