About this listing
Staying at Artist's house guarantees an authentic experience of living in my home, being able to look into my sculptor's daily routine and at the same time enjoying peace, privacy and nature. Beach, mountains and tuscan towns within reach!
Our house is immersed in nature but only 5 minutes from downtown Camaiore and 15 minutes from the sea. Guests stay in full privacy on the lower floor and have a 40sqm terrace on their own with panorama into the green, oriented towards the sea. It has table, sunbeds, chairs, hamaque. Bedroom with doublebed (one materass) is spacious with desk and sofa.
The house is rustic and restored with taste, bathroom in travertine, shower, no tub. Lots of artistic decoration and antique and solid wood furniture. In adjacent big room a kitchenette can be used with fridge.
Outdoor pizza oven is at disposition of guests. Entire house with wireless Adsl. I live without television, but there is a small stereo. The place is very peaceful and quiet and I hope this is what guests come for.
Position is strategically close to long sandy beaches, Lucca, Pietrasanta, Pisa, the quarries of Carrara and even Florence all within less than 1 hour by car in reach. Car needed. Next grocerystore is 5 minutes driving or 20min walking distance.
Last 100m to our house are private road and not paved. Parking 15m from house, not covered.
Small kitchencorner for daily fee of 5 Euros can be used.
Bedding/sheets/ and 3 towels per person are included.

NEW: sculpture-workshops possible and cooking classes at my neighbour`s!
The terrace is completely for the guests, but access to garden is free and also to my studio, as long as you knock at the door before entering ;-)
Interaction with Guests
I like to adapt to my guests needs but I am for sure always available for informations on the area etc. And always like to share a bottle of wine in the evenings, if there is common interest in a chat!
Artist's house seems to be isolated, but it isn't! Behind the trees are other neighbours, but they are all respectful, quiet and almost invisible ;-)
Unfortunately public transport to Artist's house is almost inexistant, but experience has proved; if you like to walk, you can easily get up to Pedona or, a bit longer, down to Camaiore to access busses, shops and restaurants.
Other Things to Note
I have a new dog! She is still young and playful, but quite big! A white mixed Maremma shepards dog....
There are actually very few rules here, as according to circumstances I am trying to stay as flexible as is possible for me and my workdays: I put out breakfast and until 12 am guests can help themselves; they are cordially invited to put the food back into the fridge and can let everything else on the table.
we are not attached to public sewage so one has to be careful in what is being flushed down the toilet.
no noise after 12pm as there is another neighbour downstairs.
please put the outside-illumination out if you get back home late.
and please turn bathroom heater off when not in use.
if other guests arrive on same days as you are leaving, the room should be empty by 10. arrival time is good after 5 or around midday or according previous comunication.
Majas Haus ist wirklich ein Traum! Es liegt sehr idyllisch und ist wunderschön eingerichtet! Der Blick von der großen Terrasse ist unglaublich und das tägliche Frühstück war sehr gut! Wir hatte einen erholsamen und tollen Urlaub bei Maja!
A unique place and a unique owner. House "with soul" on the hill with a large terrace offers a magnificent view. Close to the sea with a beautiful beach. May is a very nice and helpful person. I highly recommend this place.
Una casa meravigliosa curata in ogni dettaglio, accogliente, circondata dal verde e dalla meraviglie naturali della Toscana. Una padrona di casa gentilissima e premurosa. La colazione consumata sul terrazzo con la meravigliosa vista vi rimarrà in testa per un bel po'.
Niente di meglio per un soggiorno rilassante.
Liebe Maja, dein Haus und die Umgebung sind traumhaft!!! Du hast uns prima bewirtet und warst sehr hilfsbereit und hattest auch gute Tipps bereit, wenn wir was gesucht haben... Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen! Oskar (mein Sohn, 7 Jahre) hatte vor allem die Terrasse gern und Alaska, die junge Hündin, wohingegen er vor deinen Skulpturen manchmal etwas Angst hatte. Dein Haus ist voll von schönen Dingen, danke für alles und ich komme, wenn es passt gerne wieder, Ingo.
Staying at Maja's place was a kind of experience that I won't forget. House is full of art and atmosphere around is very relaxing. Maja is brilliant, kind, open, and make me feel like a real guest at her place. Strongly recommend this place for those who wants not only to have rest, but kind of retreat.
Maja's house is a real slice of heaven. Imagine driving up a private driveway that winds through the forrest, until you arrive at a quaint old stone Tuscan house, the perfect mountain retreat. Every dab of colour, every piece of furniture, every window at Maja's house - seems to just make you happy and inspire you!
Guests get a COMPLETELY PRIVATE home - the whole private lower floor of the house with a cosy living room, study, kitchen, bedroom, lavish and renovated bathroom and a stunning private balcony with a view to the mountains.
Maja herself is simply adorable, so talented and brilliant, you will enjoy her authentic Tuscan breakfasts and lovely smile, but she is also very respectful of guest's space.
Maja's house is a dream. The only downside is ever having to leave it!

About the Host, Maja
I am a swiss sculptor and live here in tuscany since 20 years. I spend my days at the studio, which is at home, and I love the way airbnb brings movement to my house.
my place is full of art, books and music. I love it when people come to relax here; there is a good energy on this hill and I love to share it.
