“If looking for a budget stay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

When we arrived we were a bit worry because looked like abandoned and we thought OMG hotel doesn't exist but after driving in, we saw some cars, some people sitting in the area and a sign of reception, so phew...

Their cottages (or bungalows) are located in green areas, nicely inserted in nature with morning birds concert... Has a terrace where to sit and relax at the entrance of the cottage; two floors, upstairs the bedroom complete of flat-screen tv, bedside lamps, a desk with chair and a cabinet; downstairs, a couch convertible bed, kitchenette with the necessary for cooking, complete with pans, pots and dishes (but no microwave) and a fridge where to cool your drinks. Bathroom, hmm all of us had an issue with it... not in good shape, basic functional, found some ants there...

Initial concept was very good as a vacation rental in medieval style but somehow things started to run down, maintenance has high costs... but for the essential nothing is missed; if needing drinks hot or cold they are available at the bar behind the reception; need internet access just sit in that area; restaurant (was not open when we were there because was low season) and a pool that will open for the summertime...

Their location is not so well indicated with street signs (good thing to have a satnav!) but once located is good positioned to visit all the area attractions: Luni archaeological site (5 kms); Sarzanello fortress (7 kms.); Bocca di Magra (8 kms.); Carrara marble caves (10 kms.); Fosdinovo castle (12 kms.); Lerici (14 kms.); Montemarcello (listed as one of the most beautiful villages but me didn't liked it, 14 km.); Tellaro (this is also listed and is nice to visit, 17 km.); Riomaggiore (Cinque Terre 37 km.)

Still I say a good place for a budget short stay, obviously is applicable the “you get what you pay...”

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

I visited this wonderful place last year in august. We were 8,4 couples and we spent 2 great days. Somebody would say 'secluded'?
Exactly the loneliness of this place, peace, nature is our owner wanted to depict each of your guests. This is the right place where you can relax, where time almost ceased, with beautiful and very well-kept pool and a view that will take your win and make you come back again.
