Description

Those in between the taste for seaside and countryside will find their ideal place in this lovely house, located in a very quiet position on a hillside on the Versilian coast. The location is particularly convenient, as it is at walking distance from the village of Capezzano Monte with shops and a restaurant and only 6 km away from Pietrasanta. This very attractive town, 'City of Arts' since 1841 and nicknamed 'the little Athens', lies between the sea and the Apuan Alps and became renowned thanks to the high concentration of internationally famous artists that decided to set there (among those are Fernando Botero, Igor Mitoraj, Kan Yasuda and the former actress Gina Lollobrigida), due to the long tradition of marble workers. The historic center is nowadays considered one of the most elegant and cultural sites in Italy, where visitors may find over 50 art galleries, fashionable boutiques, wine bars and international cultural events such as exhibitions, concerts and festivals. The renowned soft sandy beaches of the Versilia coast are also within 10 km, with high-quality beach equipment and several gardens, shops, restaurants, discos and nightclubs. The views from the whole property on the sea are spectacular and stretch from Elba Island to the Cinque Terre. The house has been recently totally restored using only typical materials of Tuscan tradition such as cotto floors, marble, chestnut wood and local tufo, yet it is equipped with sophisticated and environmentally friendly appliances such as a geothermic heating system. The interiors are light and comfortable and every bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a laundry room on ground floor with washing machine and dryer (7 kg) and a guest bathroom. The high position above the sea and the near forest always guarantee a pleasant breeze even in the hottest summer days. A special feature of this lovely property are the several areas where to relax or dine enjoying breathtaking views, or simply taste a glass of wine at sunset. The infinity swimming pool is ideal for refreshing the hottest days. An inviting sun terrace (35 sq meters) will delight those looking for bright sun and blue sky, while the back porch and the covered front terrace (45 sq meters, with sliding doors on all sides and two air-conditioners), are perfect for al fresco eating or for resting moments. To complement the outdoor life is an area with barbecue and pizza oven, also dominating outstanding views over the sea.

Guest Reviews for La Gigia

A M. (Usa)

The Villa is absolutely beautiful with spectacular views of the city of Peitrasanta below. Some mornings looking out, you are above the clouds. The downside is It is a 20 minute drive to get down the mountain with a lot of hair pin turns on a narrow road, they do have guard rails in some places along the way. They now have enclosed the lower patio with glass/ sliders. I would recommend they put the screens in the sliders. There was a wonderful breeze sitting there with the sliders open but the flys during the day & mosquitoes at night were very annoying. The pool was heavenly to have at the end of the day. The owners were just wonderful, the interior & exterior was beautifully decorated, simple & elegent. You can see they take great pride in sharing their home. I would recommend this home to friends & family


M H. (Usa)

We have had a wonderful stay at La Gigia. From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with the wonderful place and amazing view which we will remember for a lifetime. Our boys loved their temporary Tuscan home. We enjoyed a number of meals at “Nespolo” and had the pleasure of dining at home are evening ad Carla cooking for us. It has been a very special time for us as a family. Thank you.

This has been our second stay at La Gigia and we have got a perfect remember of why we loved your house. Having experienced a rather cold spring and first part if summer in Norway, if was a time relief to arrive here from Versilia and so we lived and enjoyed the surroundings once again. We can’t wait to return to Versilia!


K H. (Usa)

My wife and my guests were pleased to enjoy this beautiful home. I compliment the owner on the tasteful selection of building materials and the high quality of every aspect inside and on the grounds. We were particularly impressed with the landscape plan, and the use of local stone and the intelligent design that is in harmony with the countryside. Our days and evenings were spent outside and we enjoyed lovely food and wine. Thanks to Carla for cooking for us and for taking good care of the home.


G S. (Usa)

What an extraordinary place La Gigia is! In a beautiful part of a wonderful country. I will remember the view from the terrace – Pietrasanta + the sea – all my days. The owners have designed and renovated a truly special place in La Gigia – a world of its own yet a part of a even larger beautiful world. Everywhere one turns, there is a small piece of a larger piece – stone, wood, iron, tile, light, flower, planting – to delight the eye – and make one feel to be in a part of heaven. I have enjoyed my stay, my walks into Capezzano Monte, a glorious day in Chianti, and superb food and wine capped by the lovely dinner that Carla Prepared for us. Tante grazie, ciao.


D F. (Switzerland)

We have stayer at La Gigia for two weeks and we have had an absolutely fantastic holiday! The house us marvellous, not to speak about the view, we have enjoyed lazy days an the terrace and in the pool, as well as exploring the nearly cities if Pisa, Lucca, Viareggio and more. We have been travelling in Italy for quite a few years, but we all agree this has been the first vacation!

S P. (Usa)

What a wonderful Villa!! The views are fantastic, the stay was wonderful. Very comfortable stay. The renovation is first class!!! The drive up and down is quite frightening for us who drive mainly on flat wide roads. But we almost got used to it! Thank you to Carla for cooking us a wonderful meal and to Alessandro for all his help. We will definitely recommend your Villa to our Australians friends.
