“fantastic apartment perfect for family”
We were visiting viareggio for a friends wedding in july. We stayed for 9 days in the apartment and it was exactly what we needed. We have two young children (2 and 6months ) the apartment ment we could eat when we wanted and have all the home comforts. Alexadra and her family made us feel very welcome with cake and water on arrival. The apartment is very clean and well equipt with everthing you could want. This includes the kitchen which can sometimes be rubbish in an apartment. This one has plenty of cooking utensils. The apartment akso has a high chair and cot bed at no extra charge. We even used the baby carrier they had one day as iur buggy got wet in a storm. The apartment is accessed by a very narrow alley thriugh the side of the families home which means buggies need to be left at the front. This was not an issue as the garden safe. The appartment is also within walking distance of a vety large super market and a smaller one. The beach is also a short 20 min walk away through a fantastic park. We decided to get the train from the airport to the apartment. The station is 10 mins away if that and its a straight walk really. The onky hastle is getting everthing out of buggy etc onto train and off again with two kids! Trains are the massive ones with big steps up. We did it though. When we went home we used a taxi as it was early. The taxi was about 80 euro the train around 4! Lots to do in viareggio with children like crazy golf, bike rides and the beach. The beach is all private so yiu have to pay for a spot. I was worried about this but i have to say i will prob do this again as i preferred it. The beach was quiet and well mantained and also its nit all packed in like a free beach. Its 25 euro for the day andwe used to go earky and come back for nap time and go again later when its cooler. For the beaches with a pool too it is more expensive. We paid around 50 and this was for a beach cabana and sunlogers round the pool too. The free beach is a really far walk down the beach and past the harbiur i think. After visiting spain the following week and a normal beach i wiuld say italys are far nicer and less stressful with kids as its not as busy. Day trips to piza are also easy on the train and well wirth it. Book yiur trip up the tower in advance. Children under 8ish cant go up We would definitely go back to italy and viareggio again.
Owner's reply: Many Thanks Emma for your kindliness,it was pleasure to have your family my guest,and your baby is fantastic,Rebecca still remebers.... I hope that you and your family come back soon.
“A wonderful week.”
I stayed with my daughter and 9 month old grandson at this very child friendly property. Alessandra was a warm, welcoming and friendly host. We were greeted with a cake from the local bakers and a cold bottle of water in the fridge - a very nice and much appreciated gesture. The property itself was quiet and comfortable in what was for us a fantastic location. Good selection of kitchen equipment. Having air conditioning was a luxury as the weather was very hot when we visited. It's not too far from the beach which can be accessed by walking through a lovely 'pineta' with welcomed shade and much to do for slightly older children. What was nice about the location was that we felt like locals, not tourists.The beach itself is spotless and well maintained. As it wasn't peak season we were able to hire deckchairs and an umbrella at a reasonable price. There is also a lot to do if it's not weather for the beach. There is an amazing supermarket nearby with wonderful fresh fish, fruit and veg, bread focaccia, cured meat - the list is endless. So much choice and variety. There are some lovely little local shops too. We ate ice ream at every opportunity! There is also a wide variety of places to eat, the highlight for us being Tito del Molo for locally caught fish. Lovely interior and location. A day trip to Lucca is highly recommended. The train station is only a short walk away. It's a beautiful medieval walled city. All in all we had a truly fantastic time. Highly recommended. Thank you Alessandra!
“Very nice house, perfect for a holiday!”
I traveled with my husband and two children (two & four years old). This house suited us prefectly. It is a charming house, nicely decorated in Italian style. It is clean and equipped w/ everything you need.The host Alessandra is very helpful and serviceminded. We can highly recommend it!!
“Super charming home close to beach and restaurants”
The home is lovely: perfectly equipped and with a great atmosphere that makes you really feel home. The property is located in a quiet residential street just a few minutes from the beach (it was great to have bicycles available to go around), restaurants, supermarket and train station. Alessandra, the owner, is very kind and helpful. We loved our stay. The home is a gem and we highly recommend it.
“Posizione ottima sia per il mare che per la stazione”
La Casetta sul Mare si trova in un'ottima posizione a 15 minuti a piedi dalla spiaggia di Viareggio, a 10 dalla stazione e a 5 dal supermercato. Dispone di tutto lo spazio per ospitare anche 6 persone (camera con 1 matrimoniale, 2 letti a castello e soggiorno/cucina con 1 divano letto matrimoniale) con a disposizione cucina con lavastoviglie e forno e lavatrice. Tutto nuovo e arredato bene. Con posto per mangiare sia all'interno che all'esterno. Assolutamente consigliata per il soggiorno di una famiglia o di un gruppo di amici. Unica pecca, la connessione internet, disponibile, ma con segnale un po' debole.
The apartment is locatated in a quiet area of the town. The hosts are nice and very helpfull. We enjoyed our stay and especially the little garden space available for us. We also enjoyed the daily walk through the park on our way to the beach or city senter.
With the four of us, mother, 2 sisters and a baby boy (1,5 years old), we had a very nice stay in Casetta del Mare and in Viareggio. The casetta just gives you the feeling that you're nearby the beach. Everthing is new and it's complete. From the casetta it's a 10 minute walk through the pinewood to the sea/boulevard and 15 minutes walk to the center. If you're looking for a nice stay in Viareggio I can recommend Casetta del mare. From Viraggio you can visit all the beautiful places/citys of Tuscany.
“Bel soggiorno e bella accoglienza”
Siamo cinque in famiglia. La "casetta del mare" è molto gradevole, con arredi nuovi e in perfette condizioni, le pareti tinteggiate da poco a tinte tenue. L'appartamento è piccolo, ma organizzato in modo molto razionale. La camera da letto ha un letto matrimoniale e due letti a castello (biancheria pulita e coperte /piumini caldi), mentre nel soggiornino c'è un divano letto matrimoniale, comodo sia come divano, che come letto, anche se, una volta aperto, lo spazio diventa davvero poco. L'angolo cottura è nuovissimo, con accessori molto gradevoli e di gusto, gli elettrodomestici (forno, frigorifero, lavastoviglie e lavatrice) sono nuovi e di marche rinomate. Il bagno, piccolo anch'esso, ha un angolo con il lavandino e poi la zona doccia e wc. La casa è dotata di impianto di riscaldamento autonomo, che funziona benissimo. C'è anche un piccolo, ma gradevole spazio esterno attrezzato, con tavolo e sedie ed un angolo doccia, ma non abbiamo potuto provare niente, considerato che il soggiorno si è svolto a febbraio, in occasione di una domenica di carnevale. La casetta non è vicina al mare, vicino alla SS Aurelia, occorrono circa dieci minuti a piedi e l'attraversamento della pineta per raggiungere il lungomare. La casa non dispone di un posto auto e i parcheggi lungo la strada sono tutti a pagamento. La gentilissima proprietaria ci ha però segnalato un comodissimo parcheggio gratuito a due isolati di distanza, che si è rivelato davvero comodo. C'è un grande ed ben fornito supermercato nei dintorni. La casa non si affaccia sulla strada principale, ma occorre attraversare un strettissimo e lungo corridoio per accedervi. La proprietaria è stata molto cordiale ed accogliente e ci ha fatto omaggio di un bel vassoio di dolci tipici e di un mazzo di fiori freschi. Il giudizio sulla casa e sul soggiorno è molto positivo. Gli aspetti critici riguardano solo lo spazio: la casa è perfetta per quattro persone, ma per noi, famiglia di cinque persone, è stata sufficiente, per quanto i posti letto siano davvero sei.
