My wife and I stayed at the Europa for six nights after strenuous short-stay tours of Venice and Florence and our enjoyable experience is one we would wish to repeat. It is no exaggeration to say that this is one of those rare jewels that are a sheer delight to discover!
Apart from its setting in an exquisitely restored 19th Century villa, perhaps the most outstanding aspect of the hotel is the friendliness of the staff and excellent service provided as other reviewers have said. This very refreshing air of happiness permeates from the top, as it so often does, and clearly, high quality training is a priority for owner Antonio who is always very visible himself and ready to be helpful including tips for visiting the many attractions of the area.
Our bedroom and bathroom were both spacious and spotlessly clean with fresh linen and towels every day. We requested in advance a quiet room and it was just that, situated at the rear of the hotel on the top floor with a little balcony which afforded stunning views of the Tuscan hills.
Some people may find the breakfast choice a bit basic but it's perfectly adequate and can be taken either in the dining room or outside on the terrace overlooking the swimming pool.
The hotel is nicely located in the upmarket urban beach resort of Lido di Camaoire a couple of miles outside Viareggio which is easily accessible by bus. Close by are the Lido's extensive stretches of clean beach and beautiful promenade which in the evenings is a delight to stroll along with its many quality shops and small stalls thronging with family holidaymakers.
We would have no hesitation in recommending the Hotel Europa to anyone planning a visit to this area!
