Tuscany / Versilia / Private villa or B & B in Camaiore
A very multi-layered and historical property. It is offered either unrenovated in its current condition or renovated. For one, an exclusive private property or a B & B at its best, or a gallery, for cultural purposes and the like can arise.
The city of Camaiore is not directly on the sea, but has the flair of a city by the sea. It is not trimmed for VIPs, but all the more pleasant - countless small shops offer specialties such as buttons and sewing kits, coffees, restaurants and bread boutiques. Also worth mentioning and trying is the fish shop, where you can buy ready-made specialties to take home - stuffed mussels and calamari, lasagna with crab sauce, various fish and seafood salads, cod, dried fish, fish fillet in olive oil - just to name a few. Camaiore was initially a Roman village, only later was it made a city and belongs to the province of Lucca. In the direction of the mountains, directly after the center of Camaiore, there is the Romanesque church -Badia di San Pietro, which arose from a Benedictine monastery. From Camaiore it is only 6km to the sea.
Camaiore is surrounded by green hills with a multitude of small towns and hamlets.
Badia Abbey is only a 2 minute walk from the center of town, a beauty from bygone times - the main gate in stone, behind it the church - and right there - former monastery built in 1200, privately owned for the last few years. Around dry stone walls around 2 pretty garden parts. Now only grass grows in one, in the other a well and an old olive tree. 2 entrances. The property is under monument protection. It stands on 2 levels with a covered loggia (planned to be glazed) marble staircase at the end. 6 large rooms with a bathroom are to be created (height 3.5-4.5 m), an office and a lounge. One of the completely closed loggias is to be used as a breakfast room. At the back of the street is a small house as a neighboring house with a small garden, the room above looks into the garden.

From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces. Visitors to Tuscany come for many reasons. Many come in search of fine art, others to explore the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer vacationers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture. There is a lot to see and do in Tuscany, the difficulty is really where to start. Certainly most should start with Florence, then continue on to Siena and Pisa. The roll call of città di arte, cities of art, is daunting: Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and Lucca are all striking. The more you come to know the region, the more extraordinary Tuscany appears.
