We had a lovely time in this apartment which is about half way between Pisa and Lucca, and only about half an hour from Viareggio, making it ideal for touring the area. The setting is beautiful. Santa Maria del Giudice is a small traditional village with a lovely old church. There's a pizzeria literally feet away and it was still open when we arrived at 9pm which was perfect. The pizzeria also opens in the morning and sells pastries and coffee etc. There's a mini mart for essentials. It's expensive but you're only 10 minutes away from Lucca for other shopping. The apartment itself is very nice and clean and the pool was very good. It might be slightly under-equipped if you wanted to cook a lot during your holidays but we didn't. It would benefit from a kettle and a microwave. The only potential downsides are the church bells which ring a lot some mornings, but weirdly not others. I quite liked them but I can see they might annoy some people. And the price of the linen and the final clean seemed high, but otherwise a great place to stay.
We have just returned from spending 2 delightful and relaxed weeks at this location. The owners Johnny and Daniela were wonderful hosts giving helpful advice and guidance for visiting the area. The accommodation was all that it says on the website and well equipped although an electric kettle and a microwave would enhance the facility. The gardens were lovely as was the swimming pool. There was a mini market in the village selling local produce and a supermarket about 15 minute drive away. Pisa and Lucca could be reached in 25 minutes and it is only 90 minutes from Florence. All together a wonderful holiday which we would highly recommend.
