700 m from the sandy beach, at the edge of the Ronchi beach resort. Situated on the Versilia coast, by the Tyrrhenian Sea, 7 km from Forte dei Marmi.

The main section of the house sleeps 6 people. The smaller section has room for another 5+1 people (total of 12 people for 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms). Special Characteristics
Detached house divided in two sections standing in a large garden surrounded by hedges. Near the exclusive VIP bathing resorts of Tuscany and within easy reach of popular art cities.

This property is only a short walk from the beach. In nearby Forte dei Marmi 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 (700 m) 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 local, often overlooked but 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!

The property is situated in a quiet, leafy residential area on the edge of Ronchi, 5 km from Forte dei Marmi. The property is around 900 m2, with this delightful red house standing in the middle. The green shutters contrast well with the fresh red of the walls. The house has a gravel parking place to the front (room for 5 vehicles). 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 visitors have views of the Apuanic Alps. This property lies in a quiet area and the house is pleasantly cool during the hot summer months (windows have shutters in all rooms).

Guests renting the main section GRANDE will find ample room for 6 people there (3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms). This section is suitable for 6 adults.
The smaller section at the side of the house PICCOLO is almost the same size and suitable if you are travelling with a family with children (1 double bedroom, 1 bedroom with three or four beds and 2 bathrooms).

The two sections are autonomous from one another: they are both fully furnished and have separate entrances and seated outdoor areas. Therefore this holiday location is particularly suitable for 2 families travelling together. The individual outdoor areas are at a distance from one another and therefore provide some privacy. The main section GRANDE has a lovely covered veranda with sofas and a large marble table along the long, garden side of the house. Views of the green lawn make this the ideal place to spend those long summer evenings. The smaller section PICCOLO has a seated area under a shadow roof at the side of the house. However, the marble table on the veranda has room for 10 people to enjoy a meal together - after which the two parties can retire to the privacy of their own quarters. The best of both worlds!

GRANDE 100 sqm ( 6 pers. )
1 living room with cane furniture (2 sofas each seating 2 people), 1 dining room with round wooden table for 6 people, 1 kitchen with direct access to the garden, 3 double rooms, 2 bathrooms with shower (one bedroom is en suite, while the other two rooms share a bathroom), 50 m2 veranda with furniture and marble table on the garden side of the house.
GRANDE is located on the ground floor and is equipped with TV (regional reception), washing machine, clothes line, BBQ and parking space for 3 cars.

PICCOLO 75 sqm ( 5+1 pers. )
1 living room, 1 kitchen-living room, 1 large double room, 1 small three bed room (suitable for children, although the beds have a normal length / furthermore one additional pull-out bed for a 4th person available at extra charge), 2 bathrooms with shower, seated outdoor area under umbrella, at the side of the house.
PICCOLO is laid out on two levels and is equipped with TV (regional reception), washing machine, clothes line, BBQ and parking space for 2 cars. It is suitable for a family with several children (not two couples).

The large lawn is shared.










Regional tips

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 child-friendly: gently sloping down into the sea, their bright shining sand is lovingly cared for.
Forte dei Marmi, an elegant sea resort, was most popular around the turn of the last century. Even today, Forte dei Marmi still has a touch of sophistication. During the summer months, the town is full of the creme de la creme from the Italian world of industry and the aristocracy in their villas. In the shade of the attractively furnished luxury tents at the top bathing locations "Piero" and "Augustus", the rich and famous relax in comfortable chairs or lie back on wide sun loungers. The Baudelairean traveler's ideal of peace, bliss and sensory pleasure is reality here. Perfect atmosphere at appropriately high prices.

Marina di Pietrasanta and Lido di Camaiore are ideal bathing spots for families satisfied with a little less luxury.

Viareggio, once a small fishing village which Maria Luisa von Bourbon had converted to a harbor, experienced its heyday as a seaside resort around the turn of the last century. Art nouveau villas, palms and pines border the impressive promenades. The town is now known mainly for its internationally renowned yachting shipyards and its carnival. In summer, numerous fashion boutiques attract the visitors and revelers can be found enjoying themselves in the many bars, cafes, clubs and discos - an endless chain along the seaside promenade - until the morning hours.


Alpi Apuane is the name of the up to 2000 m high mountains behind Carrara - a paradise for mountain bikers and trekking tours. This is where the marble for which Carrara is so famous is mined.

Carrara's world-wide fame is due to the marble quarries along the flanks of the Alpi Apuane. In addition to the museum of marble and an academy of sculpture, there are also over one hundred marble workshops. For a good idea of the quarrying techniques and processing methods, visit the quarries at Colonnata and Fantiscritti, a few kilometers east of the town. The workers cut huge blocks of white marble out of the mountain with steel-wire saws: each year they mine up to 500000 tons, which is then exported all over the world. Even over 2000 years ago, the Romans supplied themselves with marble from Carrara and Michelangelo personally picked out an exquisite piece for his "David".

Bagni di Lucca is a well-know location for thermal baths, in which Heine also stayed in 1828: villas from the 18th and 19th centuries, hot springs and "sauna" grotto.

Montecatini Terme is and elegant thermal bath resort with an international name for itself. In the Parco delle Terme we find the Excelsior - an art nouveau construction from 1915, the Leopoldine baths - classical-style baths from the 18th century and the Tetuccio - an impressive column-decorated structure from 1927.

Collodi hides a Pinocchio park with scenes from the famous children's book - a delight for both young and old.

Lucca, this self-contained but still cosmopolitan art and commercial town is rightly known as the jewel of Tuscany. The town is surrounded by an unusual wall: a more than four kilometer long protective wall crowned by a shady avenue - ideal for lovers, walkers, cyclists and joggers - a romantic location with unparalleled panorama: insight and views of both the town and the picturesque silhouette of the Apennines. Enclosed by this ring wall we see the pretty little town with its many churches. The visitor will find that he can still peacefully wander along the narrow streets arranged like a chessboard - even in the peak season - past cycling students and discretely scurrying nuns and priests, past noble palazzi and elegant shop windows. We particularly recommend the Piazza del Mercato, the oval market place where there used to be a Roman amphitheater. Every third weekend in the month, more than 200 dealers present their antiques along the squares and streets of the Old Town.

We rented the apartment Piccolo last year with our two daughters at similar time, please remember us to the owner, whom we met whilst staying there. We prefer to rent the same again if it is free as it was ample for us, but will take the apartmernt Grande if necessary.
