“A wonderful stay in the Tuscan Apuan Alps”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We've just returned from a wonderful stay at I Quattro Angeli, nestled in the beautiful Tuscan mountains. The property is located in a traditional hillside village with some amazing views. From the bedroom window you can see down the valley to the town of Massa and onto the Mediterranean sea where every evening we were presented with a wonderful sunset. Out of the other window and from the terrace you have views of the Apuan Alps and the marble tipped peaks of Carrara.

I can honestly say that I've never had such a warm and friendly welcome from the owners, Keiko and Christiano made sure we were felt at home. Every evening Keiko would light an army of tea light holders along the path and around the terrace which created the perfect atmosphere to spend the evening discussing the day's activities and sampling some of the local wine. Our time here was made extra special by Gina the owner's very friendly Dog, we liked her so much we wanted to take her home with us.

Christiano filled us in on all the details of the local attractions and suggested some lovely walks in the nearby mountains and Keiko did everything she could to make our stay perfect.

The village is well away from the standard touristy areas and gives you the feel of an authentic Tuscan village. But you aren't all that far from the renaissance gems of Florence, Pisa and Lucca. A drive up into the mountains is well worth a day out and the beaches along the coast from Massa towards Viareggio are some of the best in Italy.

The property is well equipped with everything you would need in the kitchen, including a washing machine. Keiko had stocked the fridge with some essentials for us including some cold beers which were very welcome after a long day travelling. There is a bakery close by and some shops in the village, or if you prefer, some larger supermarkets 20 minutes away in Massa.

One thing you must do when you stay here, at least once but preferably more, is to visit the local Pizza restaurant in Pariana. It's only 10 minutes walk away along footpaths through the village. Polla di Tommaso is an authentic Italian restaurant, very popular with the locals and gave us the best food of our trip. Christiano booked us a table one night and ensured the owner looked after us.

I wouldn't recommend this property to more elderly visitors or people with mobility issues, due to the steep path to the property and spiral staircase to the upstairs. But to everyone else, I couldn't recommend it more highly. Thank you Christiano and Keiko for a wonderful stay and please give Gina a hug from us.

Hi James!

Thank you so much for the lovely review, we really appreciate it. Your point about the bed is well noted and we will be adding a memory foam topping to make it slightly softer for a more comfortable sleep :)

We look forward to seeing you both here again whenever you wish, best wishes,

Cristiano and Kieko

Liked best: What was initially just a base for our holiday turned out to be the highlight of our stay.
Liked least: There is no allocated parking and I was only concerned to start with because we had a hire car.
