Forte dei Marmi Vacation Rentals by Owner

Forte dei Marmi is a coastal town in the province of Lucca, in northern Tuscany, Italy. The population of the town, almost 8000, nearly triples during the summer, because of the hundreds of tourist who mainly come from Florence, Milan, Germany, and Russia. The sea side resort offers visitors a range of lodging and accommodations, from luxurious villa rentals and vacation rentals to cozier condo rentals and apartment rentals.

The town takes its name, Fort of the marbles, from the fortress that rises in the middle of the main square, built under Grand Duke Peter Leopold, who was to become Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor, in 1788. The Fortress, after being employed as a postal service office, is now a museum of satirical art. Some locally owned accommodation, vacation rental, condo rental, apartment rental and villa rental options are within close proximity to this historic structure.

Each Wednesday, a market is held which has become famous for discounts on designer clothes, leather goods, etc. Small antiques fair and market has about 45 stands in piazza Dante, selling objects, paintings, antique furniture and other various objects every second Sunday of the month and preceding Saturday.

In the 19th century, the village started to develop into the splendid sea town full of tourists, as it is today. In addition to the beautiful beaches and its center, Forte dei Marmi is famous also for its festivals (of Sant’Ermete and San Francesco) and for its markets (antique fair, weekly market in Marconi square and at Victoria Apuana). In addition to the crystal clear sea, Forte dei Marmi is popular for its surroundings area which is rich in history, culture and ancient traditions. Here you can undertake interesting excursions to discover the Apuan Alps and the entire Province of Lucca. The center of town has an abundance of shops and high fashion boutiques with designer's clothes and it is a must for visitors to go out shopping late in the evening and head back to their luxurious villas for an aperitif. Many of the accommodation, vacation rental, and apartment rental and villa rental choices give its visitors a glimpse of the rich Italian culture.

The jetty at Forte dei Marmi was built at the end of the road that Michelangelo Buonarroti had built to transport the marble for his sculptures. Though today the jetty is no longer used as part of the marble transportation process, it has remained, extending more than 300 meters out to sea. At sunset, as the surfers head back to shore along red and purple tinted waves, the jetty offers the most beautiful views of the Marble Riviera.

In addition to all the local beauty, Forte dei Marmi is in close proximity to the Apuan Alps. These Alps allow its climbers, either traditional or free-climbing, to make very interesting climbs. Furthermore the Apuan Alps allow hikers to cover itineraries in every season and of every level.

Forte dei Marmi is a wonderful coastal resort which also serve as a central base to explore the region of Luca and it offers it visitors many comfortable accommodations, vacation rentals, villa rentals and apartment rentals.

    Abandoned for 40 years, while the forest encroached, the mill is now being restored and modernized as minimally as possible. You will can even contribute to the restoration if you are so inclined, or you can use your stay in this remote and enchanted place as a base for hill-walking, for exploring the countless wonderful locations in the Garfagnana, and take day trips to Florence, Lucca, Pisa, etc. Extras such as guided walks, etc. May be available: please ask. There are vast areas of mountain to walk in, including our own land. Monte Giovo (1996m) is about 5 km away, and its peak is accessible via an easy path. We particularly recommend a stay here to those who enjoy being in the heart of nature and walking in the mountains. The river here is really a sequence of small pools and falls. It is very refreshing to bathe in the cool mountain water.

    Charming and picturesque village. Stunning views. Quiet. Easy access to Bagni di Lucca, Barga, the Garfagnana, and the Lima valley. An Ideal Base: A bijou town house in the charming hill-top village of Tereglio near to Bagni di Lucca in the approaches to the Appennine Alps. With three double bedrooms, this unit can accommodate 6 people. This is an excellent base for exploring the Garfagnana and Tuscany in general. There are two balconies overlooking the spectacular verdant panorama. As seen on TV: When you catch a glimpse of Tereglio atop its spur of mountain from across the valley, through your telephoto lens you may be able to see our balconies. It certainly caught the eye of the producers of "A Place in the Sun": This was one of the properties they filmed when they prepared a program on the Garfagnana in May 2006.
