The B & B "Orizzonte di mare" was selected as the site TOPBNB like best bed and breakfast in Italy.
The B & B "Orizzonte di mare" is at Compignano, in the municipality of Massarosa, province of Lucca, in a wonderful position on the hills that separate the city of Lucca from the Versilia coast. From the bedroom you can enjoy lovely views of the Mediterranean which slopes down to the sea, and when the Mistral blows the clouds, we can see the Alpes Maritimes, the islands of Corsica and Elba. The silence and the beauty of the forest surrounding the house are the framework for what could be a relaxing holiday, a romantic elopement or a pleasant base for exploring the attractions of the area. You'll be spoiled for choice. City to visit, like Lucca, which is 10 km, Pisa (25 km) or Florence (90 km), the Lucchese countryside with its vineyards and olive groves which produce the delicious oil, the beautiful villas of the eighteenth century, the villages still have a touch of the past, the sea of Versilia an environment for those who love "cool" or Marina di Vecchiano for those who want a more natural contact with the sea, with its long beach and the characteristic landscape of the dunes. Or get lost in the valley of the Garfagnana to seek those unique flavors of the cuisine of Lucca.
The two rooms had a double bed with a big closet and private bath is located just outside the room.
Guests can relax in the small porch or hammock in the flower garden with barbecue area, shade of the oaks.
And then the magic of the place ... but that's not there I can tell, I can only invite you to live it.
Posto bellissimo, casa accogliente, Michela ospite speciale.
grazie Michela, tutto è stato perfetto, nostro figlio dice che dovremmo venire a vivere lì da te ... adesso ci pensiamo un attimo :-)
sicuramente però torneremo !!!
ciao Michela, a presto e grazie ancora per la cordialità e la pazienza.
Michela is a fantastic host. Her room is really with a view. Her place is homely, although the drive is a bit unusual not having been there before, arriving at sunset is a bit if a dream. You will need a car to get to michela. Her room is comfortable, for me, coming from Malaysia, it is a bit cold, but for my husband, the temperature was perfect. We will definitely visit her again given the chance. michela is a fantastic host. She recommended us to a most amazing restaurant in Lucca called Canuela, which was more than fantastic. Thank u Michela.
This was my 2nd stay with Michela. We returned becuase we were sure to find a clean and spacious room, a pleasant host and a great view. Since we knew where the house was, we didn't mind that we came after dark.
We brought some food to prepare in Michela's kitchen. She set the table for us and helped us prepare our food and shared some of her fabulous olive oil, cheeses, salami, etc. We had a feast, a hot shower and a good night's sleep.
In the morning before our flight out we had time for a walk in through the vineyards (with such beautiful views and scents from the vegetation) and a good breakfast. Michela was generous in every way and we felt much at home. I highly recommend a stay here for as many days as you can stay, but even one night will not disappoint.
We came late one evening straight from Pisa airport by car. Michela was kind and waited for us and helped us with directions when we got confused. It is a little tricky to find in the dark when you aren't used to driving on tiny Italian windy roads, but we didn't mind the adventure. The room was comfortable, spacious enough and all we required for our short visit. It was completely quiet and restful. I suspect if we had stayed longer we would have settled in more to the house and had a chance to chat more with Michela. Breakfast foods were plentiful and we helped ourselves since Michela was out by the time we woke up. We only hoped she didn't mind that we went through a fair bit of her delicious cheese:)
We would certainly recommend staying here - and it is true that the view is beautiful!
Superbe vue et maison confortable
We, my husband, our 1 year old boy and I loved to stay at Michela's place in the mountains — cosy and queried with a beautiful view ... easy to get around from there and still pretty close to a pizza place and shopping. Best regards Mallu
We are just back from a lovely week in Tuscany. Michela's place is a charming, peaceful and relaxing house located on the edge of a Tuscan hill. It is the ideal base camp for anyone who want to relax and take the time to appreciate the beauty of the region - away from any urban activity. (A car is mandatory to get there and visit the region around though.) Also, Michela made everything to make us feel like home. She proved to be a welcoming, helpful and attentive host. We recommend her without any hesitation!
PS: Thanks again for the morning Italian coffees!! On our way back, we stopped at an Italian supermarket to buy a coffee maker just like yours :-)
It's a great beautiful place surrounded by nature, views and tranquility. The house is very charming and you følter at home immediately and was also good friends with the cats. All work fine in the house, however, is wi-fi a little unstable. Michela is a very nice and helpful host. If you enjoy pure relaxation and likes to just sit and enjoy the view then this is the place, we found it hard to take off on our tour, and was therefore not quite seen so much of Tuscany as we would like, but it gives us the only reason to come back.: o)
We enjoyed our stay at Michela's place. Her house is beautifully located and very well kept. Visiting the house needs to be done by car is my advice. You need to climb up and down a curvy mountain road for everything you plan to do. It's a great place to visit different Tuscany towns. The only small disappointment we had were the (nearby) beaches. The sea is quite polluted in the area and it takes quite a drive. If you are looking for a Italian beach holiday, I wouldn't recommend Michela's place. But when you are looking for a holiday of exploring Tuscany and staying over at a very cosy and relaxing home: go for it! :)
Very nice view!
