The apartment has it's own patio with furniture in the fantastic gardens of this property which includes an olive grove, porticoed area for al fresco dining out of the sun and clean swimming pool. Paola, the owner, was very welcoming and speaks perfect English. Very handy location for the beaches of Forte Dei Marmi or Viareggio, the historic towns of Lucca, Barga, Pisa (40 minutes) and close to the station for a train trip to Florence (1 hr 45). We visited the working marble quarries at Carrara where Michelangelo, amongst others, sourced the marble for their work, including his 'David'. The property is in the small district of Pozzo, the back gate opens across the road from the bar and a trattoria and small convenience shop are just a few metres down the road. Excellent seafood and pizza at '4 Mori' with friendly local service a 5 minute walk up the road.
