Lavinia was such a lovely host. Came out to meet us in the car with a spare umbrella as it was raining, then took us inside where she offered us hot drinks and a lovely chat. The room was beautiful, with a comfy seating area, and a stunning balcolny terrace with grape vines overhead! This was topped off by a beautiful view. Her passion for her animals was inspiring, and her kindness will not be forgotten. Was tricky to find the property to begin with, as Maps tries to take to down roads far too small for a car, but Lavinia's communication was great to help guide us to where we needed to be. A great first time using Airbnb, and would highly recommend this property!

This house, this apartment is amazing and it was a true joy to stay here. When we were there in early September, the grapes and vines that grow all over the balcony gave out a lovely scent that I will never forget. This house is quiet and a great refuge, the cats and turtles are great companions and Lavinia was incredibly forthcoming and nice. Thank you again, Lavinia! If you are looking for a base to explore Tuscany from then Massa is the perfect place. It's not overrun by tourism and very authentic, unstressful and welcoming. The beaches are perfect and Pisa is about an hour away by train and car. I would recommend this apartment to everyone except perhaps if you are allergic to cats. Everyone else has no excuse not to stay here!

Thank you Lavinia making us stay at your house. We stayed 2 nights here and Lavinia was very kind throughout our stay. Location: Far from cinqueterre. Far from city centre. You need to have a car to go around. But car park is 3mins hill walk from the house so if you have luggages, try to pack well. Lavinia recommended us to take a boat trip to go to Cinqueterre and it was a great boat trip! Thanks! Space: This is not a whole house renting. Lavinia has her room and kitchen on the ground floor with her lovely 3 cats. Ground floor living room, 1st floor master bedroom + bathroom + little living room, 2nd floor bedroom with 2 beds are for guest use. So basically it's home stay. She was very kind to offer us to use her kitchen and made us tasty coffee every morning. Thank you:) Cleaness: ok. Wifi speed: great:) Others: she has a lovely garden and great view. Unfortunately, it was raining at evening, we couldn't catch a lovely sunset:( Suitable for people love nature and animals.

We had a great time staying with Lavinia. Her house is lovely, cool, calm, lovely balconies and garden. There was a lot of space over three floors, and very comfortable. Our regret was to stay only one night. Lavinia was a perfect host, very friendly and helpful, and pointed us in the direction of the local trattoria, Emma's, that was fantastic and only a short walk away. We've been in the area before and love walking in the Alpi Apuana.

Lavinia was a very engaging and communicative host. She made sure a friend was home to greet us when we arrived. The place was beautifully renovated and super clean. A couple of decks overlooked the lush garden and green hills of the region. The neighbors cats and little dog were very friendly and escorted us from and to her place in the evening.
