“Nice, cheap place with entertaining host!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We spent 3 days here. It's a family run guesthouse and - if you speak some Italian, but also if you don't! - the host Enrico will make your stay unforgettable.
Rooms are well decorated and clean, air conditioning would make them perfect.
There are only 3 rooms so even if you get a double with shared bathroom you're only sharing with another room.
Bikes are provided free of charge, which is very good as the beach is only 10 minutes away cycling but could be a long walk otherwise.
Overall this is the perfect place if you want to avoid being ripped off in this seaside area in Tuscany. Torre del Lago is actually a lovely town and cycling is the best way to see it.
Thank you Enrico & family!

Great B&B in charming Torre del Lago. We stayed for 6 days. Enrico, the owner, was such a great host. The room (with the private bathroom) was lovely and comfortable. Breakfast in the gazebo was excellent and Enrico was always there, every morning, to make sure everything was to our liking. The off-street parking was very convenient. Great, great time in Torre del Lago and great place to stay. Grazie Enrico e famiglia. Vittorio & Karla Pardini

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at la Garzetta. The owner and his family were so friendly and helpful. We were met at the station and taken back to the station at the end of our stay. During our stayr we were given lifts to Viareggio including an unscheduled tour of the citadella del carnevale, an amazing place where giant papier mâché figures for the Viareggio carnival are made. We had unlimited use of bicycles to get to the nearby beach and to cycle into Viareggio. It's also easy to get to Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Viareggio, Petrasanta etc. by train and bus from here. Breakfasts were plentiful and always ready in the outdoor gazebo set up for the purpose. The B&B is in Torre del Lago Puccini, a quiet extention to the busier resort of Viareggio. Beside the lago di Massaciuccoli, associated with Puccini, is the great open-air theatre where opera, jazz etc. are performed, and this is easily reached on foot or by bicycle from the B&B. But it is more than anything else the cordial welcome that we received that made this such a pleasant stay. The owner and his family were very chatty, helpful and attentive, and very patient with my attempts to converse in somewhat rusty Italian. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B and hope to return there in the future.
