CASA ROSSA - A PLACE OF CONSCIOUS LIVING!
You like nature, silence, beauty, art and harmonious and healthy living, but still want to stay close the Italian buzz? So this is the right place for you!
MINIMUM STAY 2 NIGHTS!
SPACIOUS DOUBLE BEDROOM
A beautiful spacious and tastefully furnished double bedroom with a large japanese style double bed with futons with an en suite bathroom. Looking out into the garden on the one side, and to the mountains the other side. The room is on the upper floor.
You need a CAR to get to Casa Rossa which is nestled in the forest at the feet of the Apuan Alps, and you need to drive up a small curvy road, but it's worth it. Casa Rossa is a gorgeous romantic house, in the middle of silent and pure nature surrounded by chestnut, olive, figtrees and the famous marble mountains. The house is an 200 year old traditional rustic stone house, renovated and decorated with taste and artistic flair.
A generous breakfast is served on the big veranda , and it consists of healthy ORGANIC products, with spring water from the property.
You are welcome to store some food int the fridge, but NO cooking and NO laundry.
You need less than 15 minutes by car to get to the art town Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi for shopping or the beaches, and less than 1 hour to get to Florence, Lucca, Pisa, 5 Terre or the caves of Carrara. Just down in the valley (you can either walk or drive), we have a river with clear pools inviting you for a dip to cool down when it is hot in pristine nature.
I love to meet and welcome people (I speak German, English, French and Italian) and making them feel at home ! You might decide to stay more than just two nights and spend a day on the beach or decide to go up to the historical Michelangelo cave for a hike with its splendid view or go to Florence or other places. If you want to stay in the garden and just chill out and relax, I can cook and serve you a tasty LUNCH (15 Euros per person, need to be informed 24 hours in advance). It is actually the ideal place to recharge your batteries!
You have access to WIFI and are welcome to store food in the fridge.
I always try to meet their needs, want them to feel at ease and at home.
You need a car to get to the towns like Seravezza, Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta. But there you have buses and train connection.
No laundry and no cooking.
I spent hours looking for the right place to stay for a few nights in Tuscany and I wasn't happy til I found Annas place :-) Tucked away in a very green valley near Seravezza Anna offered her world to us: Open spaces, free and easy but still thoughtfully furnished, nature and natural materials and great organic food incl her homemade bread. What more can you want for a great holiday? Maybe a lovely host? We got it with Anna! She gave us a very warm welcome (even though it was already midnight when we arrived) and made us feel welcome and at home immediately. Annas is all herself, relaxed and does not give you the feeling you are disturbing her in any way. Anna knows where it's best to go for swim and she even knows where to buy statuario - the high quality marble you find in this area. We (two couples) enjoyed staying at Annas very much (and even though we'd rather keep this little gem as a secret we happily share it will everybody).
Anna est une artiste exceptionnelle qui loge dans une demeure hors de l'ordinaire. Décorée avec goût, et plusieurs pièces d'art , la Casa Rossa fait rêver. Pour s'y rendre, la route est TRÈS étroite mais ca vaut vraiment le coup! Les chambres sont vastes et les lits bien (website hidden) petit déjeuner, nous avons été épatés par la tablée remplie d'ingrédients frais, biologiques et délicieux. Le pain fait maison par Anna est un des meilleurs pains que j'ai mangé, nous avons même rapporter deux tranches pour collation :)
En soirée, nous sommes allés manger à Pietrasanta, ville d'artistes et de belles terasses proposée par Anna.
We had a most enjoyable stay at Casa Rossa. Anna was a fabulous host & we found the experience of the place a thoroughly enjoyable one in Nature. We made visits to the nearby villages & were impressed with the friendliness of the locals. The meals we shared were made entirely of fresh organic ingredients, while sitting opposite the misty mystical mountains was a memorable experience. Thank you Anna for your friendship & hospitality.

Anna ist sehr herzlich und Hilfsbereit, kann phantastisch Kochen, hat immer einen guten Tipp parat (ob Strand, Einkaufsmöglichkeit oder Restaurant). Eine perfekte Gastgeberin!
La casa rossa of Anna is a really great place to stay. Up in the mountains it is a place of total calm, where we find time to read and chill. Anna is an amazing host, she gave us good hints what to do and the breakfast was very delicious (served on the terrasse). I can only and without any hesitation recommand a stay at casa rossa.
