About this listing

Staying at Artist's house guarantees an authentic experience of living in my home, enjoying peace, privacy, ART and nature. Beach, mountains and tuscan towns within reach!

The space

My house is immersed in nature but only 5 minutes from downtown Camaiore and 15 minutes from the sea. Set on the ridge of the hill, in summer there is always a pleasant light breeze.
Guests enjoy full privacy on their floor and have a 40sqm terrace on their own with panorama into the green, oriented towards the sea. It has table, sunbeds, chairs. Bedroom with doublebed (one mattress) 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. There is an additional bed-sofa in the adjacent room, if you have friends coming, for additional fee. This room has a small kitchen with all essential equipment to prepare your own meals.
Heating in winter is woodstoves only.
Outdoor pizza oven or bbq is at disposition of guests. Entire house with wireless Adsl. 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 my house is private road and not paved and narrow! Parking 15m from house, not covered.

Guest access

The terrace is entirely and exclusively for the guests, access to garden is free and bbq possible on request.

Interaction with guests

I like to adapt to my guests needs and 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!

Other things to note

I have a big dog, Alaska, and she follows me to work or is otherwise in enclosed area mostly.
My house is exactly how I live it...f.e. there are no curtains, no TV, no Stereo.
Living in nature sometimes means to hear people cut trees, distant dogs barking, full moon shining on your bed :-)

This place was amazing. If you want to stay near Camoire, I would highly recommend. The artwork itself is worth the visit but the location and scenery and make it even more worthwhile. Maja is a friendly host who has lots of knowledge of the area. I would come back in a minute without question, just need to remember to bring my road bike next time.

We had a wonderful stay at Maja's lovely apartment. The house is situated in a beautiful countryside, not far away from the beach. The apartment is lovingly furnished, very clean and has everything you need. We enjoyed to eat outside on the huge terrace that we had for our own. The way to the house was for us easy to find with the description of Maja. Maja herself was a perfect host. She welcomed us herself and communication with her was easy.

Maja was very nice and welcomed us to her cosy house. The view from the terrace is spectacular and the neighborhood is beautiful and quiet (although we heard the dogs from the valley bark quite loudly at night). The rooms of the apartment have a personal and arty touch, just some details might need a little more attention (e.g. like the broken mosquito net on the window). We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay!

Response from Maja:
living in the country often includes some unpredictable aspects, like insects, neighbours cutting trees or dogs barking ;-) as far it goes to the appartment, it is my plan to upgrade it, rennovate and restore, but price will go up too, as right now it is really cheap for all the space you get...but i apologize for inconvenience!

I loved staying at Maja's place, and it was as it is in the photographs. She met me at the road to make sure that I could find the house. Although Maja was not there after the first day of my stay, she introduced me to her friend Maurizio, who gave me his telephone number and told me to call him if I had any problems or requests. When I had one small issue to be resolved (because the internet router stopped working) he could not have been more helpful. The house was lovely and in a very nice spot between Camaiore and Pedona. Overall, I had an excellent time at Maja's house, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others, or to use it again in the future.

Majas home is a beautiful place. It's nicely furnished, filled with personal things and very clean. It's easy to feel comfortable there. The nature around the house is beautiful. You can enjoy the lovely terrace, the area is nice for walks and it's also not far to go to the beach. I spent a great time at Majas place and can absolutely recommend it.

Maja gave us a warm feeling of welcome in her house, which was filled with an authentic sphere of art, space and quietness. We sensed a positive energy in and around the house. A house with a soul in which we felt at ease en could relax. We also enjoyed the beautiful view from the balcony and the garden with herbs and pieces of art al around. The house offers all the comfort we required. The small charming kitchen was sufficient to prepare small meals. We also enjoyed to explore the environment and love Toscane.

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.

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.
