A Family Home
managed with Love
Hospitality with all comforts, dedicated to my father Mario
Casa Mario dei Pini is the house where my family has lived for generations, and Mario was in fact the name of my father to whom this project of hospitality is dedicated. Its layout is typical of the Viareggio town and it is thus called “Casa Viareggina”.
The entire house will be for your exclusive use.
It was supposed to become the house of my own family but life brought me elsewhere, specifically to Bristol (UK) where I currently live.
The house provides every comfort and it has just been partially re-furnished to hopefully please the needs of our guests. We can host 6 people in two queen size beds and two single beds. One of the queen-size beds can be made into two single beds upon request.
It is strategically located less than a 10 minute walk from the main facilities and amenities: local greengrocer (1 min), quality supermarket (3min), bus stop connected to Pisa airport (4min), the “Pineta” park (5 min), railway station (7 min), independent restaurant/pizzeria (7 min), main market square (10 min). Walking for less than a 15 min walk away will lead you to the seafront, main promenade and the beach.
I personally take care of the relationship with the guests via internet and telephone, while Luciana and Maia will receive and take care of your stay once you are there. Enrico is also available as a driver to take you around if you need transport (for an additional fee).
I lived in this house until I was 43 and I am so pleased to now make it available to other people who can enjoy the dear places where I spent my infancy, youth and early adulthood. I will let you know my best picks for places to visit and things to do at any time of the year. You will be close to some of the most stunning places of Italy!
Please read the detailed descriptions, and be sure that you are happy with the rules of the house. I look forward to hearing from you :-)
Luciana, Art Director
Luciana is my best friend and works as a Hotel director on the seafront. She has a great passion for hospitality and she is basically the art director of the project. The interior design that you will find there is mainly due to her passion and talent. She supervises all activities and she speaks Italian, English, French and some German.
Maia, Home Care
Maia lives just behind the backyard and she is basically your neighbour. She became part of our family after being the carer of my father, when he passed away almost 10 years ago. She is a lovely and kind woman. She speaks Italian and Russian.
My dear old friend Enrico is someone that you can truly call a proud native of Viareggio. He knows all the cracks and crannies of the area and can drive you to places where you cannot easily go with public transport.
Happy to contribute to the enjoyment of our guests, he speaks English and French fluently and basic Spanish and German.
This is me. I have done many things in my life, from Software Engineering to Dance Teaching. I am now happy to be a gardener in Bristol UK.
