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. Breakfast is usually served in the garden.
Upper floor serves as breakfast room in case of bad wheather. It is however my studio/loft, which will give you full insight in my work.
Additional rooms are: a big room with a single bed and kitchencorner. A second bed can be added.
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.
Wir sprechen Deutsch.
We speak english.
Nous parlons français.
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 ;-)
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.
I have a new dog! She is still young and playful, but quite big! A white mixed Maremma shepards dog....
We enjoyed very much the stay in Maja's house! Everything was as expected or even better! Specially the breakfast outside, hearing the birds singing on the balcony and the great advise from Maja (restaurants, citytrip...) made it to an unforgetable stay. We would recommend it to other people and maybe return once in the future.
If I were a poet I might be able to express the pleasure I found at Maja's home and in her company.
Suffice it to say that I would return at any opportunity and would recommend the experience and company to any and all of my friends and associates.
We had a most amazing time in Maja's house. It is a wonderful place to get away from busy city life and to enjoy beautiful views. Maja is very helpful and friendly host. Breakfast served outside was delicious and we thought local bread is one to die for. Beach is only a short drive from the house and is wonderful for a walk or for a whole day in a sun. I would recommend Artist's House to everyone who likes a bit of piece and quiet.
Мы с мужем отдыхали в Италии в середине сентября. Несколько дней провели в Риме, а потом на поезде отправились в Тоскану в гости к Майе. В Виареджио взяли машину напрокат (300 м направо от ж\д вокзала, фирма "Avis") и, следуя четким предварительным инструкциям Майи, по живописному серпантину добрались до "Casa Maja". Дом расположен в сказочном месте, которое поразило нас своей тишиной и спокойствием. Домики, стоящие неподалеку, даже называются по-волшебному: "Chicco di rosmarino", "Capanna Rossa"...
Майя - человек искусства, скульптор, и каждый уголок ее дома отмечен изяществом и утонченным вкусом. Завтракать среди оливковых деревьв, провожать день, стоя на террассе на уровне верхушек пиний, дышать чистым горным воздухом - такого вы больше не найдете нигде.
Большое спасибо сайту airbnb за чудесную возможность провести каникулы в Тоскане.
P.S. Единственное сожаление, что нельзя оформить визу с помощью этого сайта.
P.P.S. Мы готовы ответить на любые вопросы по поводу нашего путешествия на русском, итальянском, английском языках.
Es war ein wunderbarer Urlaub. Das Haus ist wunderschön und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, die Lage ist grandios und Maja ist eine tolle Gastgeberin. Das Frühstück morgens im Garten unter dem Olivenbaum und zwischen Skulpturen war ein Erlebnis und sehr lecker. Wir haben uns rundherum wohlgefühlt und kommen sehr, sehr gerne wieder.Vielen Dank, liebe Maja!!!!!
Bellissima location, maja e' molto gentile e molto simpatica! Consigliato!
Luogo incantevole immerso nel verde, estremo relax.
La casa ha un qualcosa di magico, possiede un'energia particolare, capisco perché è il luogo adatto per un'artista.
Maja è estremamente premurosa, simpatica, carina, ci ha fatto sentire da subito a casa! Ci sembrava di conoscerla da sempre!
Gli spazi dedicati agli ospiti sono molto ampi, comodi, curati nei dettagli, ci siamo innamorati del terrazzo con vista sui colli.
Colazione all'aperto, in giardino, abbondante, casalinga, ottima!
Esperienza molto, molto positiva!
"immersed in nature" Das stimmt. Und deswegen kann man auch richtig entspannen.Maja hat immer einem Rat und Tipp bereit wenn es um die Region um Camaiore und sogar der ganzen Toskana geht.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt bei Maja jedenfalls genossen und würden ohne zu zögern wieder bei Maja einkehren.
We spent a week at Maja's house and were very happy with the accomodations, the breakfasts she provided and her excellent suggestions for things to do in the area. The drive up the narrow road to her lovely secluded home was a bit nerve wracking for those of us accustomed to wider, straighter roads, but after a few days it was less of an ordeal. A lovely place return to after day trips to Florence, Carrera, Lucca and other nearby towns.

We had a wonderful stay at Maja's place. The room is private with its own outdoor area looking out into nature. The bathroom is big, clean and functional with a good hot shower.
The location is udeal for outdoor types. we went on walks and runs from Maja's place.
We also enjoyed looking around and eating in local town Camaiore. The rope were friendly. We felt like we had escaped the tourist trail.
Maja was a great host. She provided guidance on request but also allowed for us to have our privacy. It is a homely place.
Breakfast was generous healthy and fresh. Thanks Maja!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
