Interaction with Guests
I love other cultures and share my experiences. I have always had foreign guests especially since I live in this house with most of them was born a friendship that lasts to this day. I could not do without the internet and good food and film. I love company, organizing field trips, dinners and let my friends know each other. I always thought that everyone likes to feel at home, so I leave to my roommates maximum freedom to define the relationship that they wish to have them with me, I can be a new friend or simply the owner of the house, in mutual respect of their habitats .
Keep clean the common spaces, especially the kitchen.
Smoking is allowed in the backyard.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Federica made me feel welcome right away, with keys and local restaurant recommendations and showing me to my room through the lovely patio which has a huge lemon tree growing in it!
The room was ideal for a solo traveller, with an ensuite bathroom and access to both the patio and the kitchen.
The house is on a nice quiet street easy walking distance from Viareggio train station one way and the beach and main promenade the other way.
From Viareggio train station, you can travel easily all over Tuscany and Italy, and it's cheap! (Compared to UK trains anyway). You could easily do day trips from this house to Florence, Pisa, Siena, Cinque Terre national park and no doubt other places that I haven't looked into yet.
Federica and Daniele were lovely hosts who were happy to leave me to it and also to chat as I wished. They also have two new kittens who are heartbreakingly cute and lovely company!
I would highly recommend staying here, and I hope to be back again one day.
It was a wonderful time in the house. Nice spacious room with large bed. We were very welcomed and given space to relax. The use of the kitchen was lovely. Only 4 blocks from the beach, and a nice walk with cafes and parks on the way. Overall a very nice experience.
Padrona di casa davvero molto amichevole e disponibile, casa spaziosa, clima cordiale anche con gli altri ospiti. La camera e la distanza dalla stazione erano esattamente come indicate nell'annuncio. Federica ci ha messo la cucina a disposizione anche per preparare la cena, cosa che abbiamo apprezzato molto. Bisogna lavarsi i piatti della colazione, cosa da tenere presente se avete orari da rispettare al mattino.
I only met Federica briefly but she was lovely and welcoming. She was quick to respond to any queries I had prior to arriving and whilst I was there. She was also very flexible with the check-in / check-out times which was helpful with my travel planning.
The room and facilities were as described and catered for what I needed during my short stay. Wi-Fi access in the room was great too. Furthermore, the location of the apartment was very central and convenient - only 5 mins walk from the railway station, to the beach and also to main piazza square. There is a supermarket close by as well as a large park with bicycle hire and amusement rides/games too.
Would recommend if you are in the area.
I loved my stay in viareggio at federicas. It was just what I needed after 3 months of travelling. The house is so close to the beach, the beautiful park and the supermarket. The courtyard was perfect for meals and chatting! Especially thanks to federica who was a great host and went out of her way to help me when I needed to get in contact with my overseas bank. Can't wait to come back:)
I had a very nice stay. The house and room was lovely and clean and very close to the beach, park and train station.
Federica was very friendly and helpful and made my life easier in terms of things to do, places to eat etc. Thank you Federica!
I would highly recommend staying here.
My stay in Viareggio was really great. I was traveling on my own and felt at home in Federica's house. Besides, I could easily travel and discover Tuscany. The beach is nearby if you want to rest as well.
But what make my journey even more memorable was Federica's home. My room was neat and comfortable enough for my stay. The little garden is so relaxing as well. Federica is a very kind person, that will make her utmost to ease your stay. She gave me tips and was available at any time.
I just hope to come back to her place very soon and I really recommend anyone to go there.

About the Host, Federica
Adoro leggere, viaggiare, amo le culture diverse dalla mia e condividere esperienze. Non potrei fare a meno di internet, della buona cucina e del cinema. Mi piace stare in compagnia, organizzare gite, cene e far conoscere i miei amici tra di loro. Ho sempre pensato che ad ognuno piace sentirsi a casa sua, quindi lascio ai miei coinquilini la massima libertà di definire il rapporto che vorranno avere loro con me, posso essere una nuova amica o semplicemente la proprietaria di casa, nel rispetto reciproco dei propri spazi vitali.
