Massa Carrara Region Vacation Rentals

Named after its two main towns, the region of Massa Carrara is enriched by its history and its location along the western coast of Italy. It is enhanced with the majestic backdrop of the Alpi Apuane mountains – where Michelangelo travelled to choose the marble for his works of art. Related to this history, tour the Cava Museo di Fantiscritti and the Museo Civico del Marmo. During August, there is an re-enactment of the ancient method of transporting blocks of marble downhill into the valley – the lizzatura.

Book your holiday accommodation in a privately-owned vacation rental for your stay in Tuscany. Hike or bike in the mountains. Carra – the city of marble – has its Romanesque-Gothic cathedral as its master piece. Visit the shops in the Palazoo delle Logge which was built in the 16th Century and completed in the 17th Century. Their entrances are protected by the long portico, the arches of which support the piazza del Praticino above. The museum of the Natural History of Man is located here. After a day of exploring, it is pleasure to be able to return to the accommodations you picked from the many vacation rentals available at ownerdirect.com. Privately-owned villa rentals, apartments, an agriturismo or a condo rental, can be found at Owner Direct Vacation Rentals. This websites offers you the conveniences of home within vacation rental accommodations set up for you and your family or friends.

Discover charming villages. Visit the enchanting medieval castle at Fosdinovo. The imposing Fortezza della Brunella is at Aulla. The ancient-walled Fivizzano is where the Disfida tra gli arcieri di terra e di corte – an archery challenge – occurs. Here you will find the print museum, Museo della Stampa. Rather than stay in a hotel, surround yourself in the heart of Tuscany and stay in privately-owned vacation rentals. Villas, often with swimming pools, or apartments within a villa rental are wonderful.

Owner Direct Vacation Rentals offers lodging accommodations for you and your family within a holiday home setting. A condo rental or a chalet rental in the mountains, a cottage in the country or a condo rental within a gated community, choose your holiday home today. Upon your return, add your review to the ones you have read – assisting another person who is planning their dream-come-true vacation. What will it be - a villa rental in the countryside or one of the many villas decorated in the Renaissance style? Villa rentals are spacious, and often luxurious. Condo rentals are perfect for one or a few people.

There are extensive private wooded grounds which drop away from the house giving a real sense of privacy and peace. The whole atmosphere is one of utter tranquility – we are far from any major road and the only sounds are the splash of the water as it tumbles from rock to rock, the birds and the summer calling of the crickets. At night, we are far away from any light pollution and guests always enjoy the brilliance of the stars and the closeness of the moon. There is nothing to spoil the view and to witness a morning here is truly magnificent – the light has a wonderful brilliance and luminescent quality which never fails to enthrall. The living area is comfortable with sofas and individual armchairs, a hardwood dining table and chairs and occasional furniture.

    This comfortable, well equipped 90 square metre apartment is ideal for a couple or small family. It occupies the most ancient part of our beautifully restored stone farmhouse, revealing small traces of its 13th century origins during the restoration. The apartment sits below the main house, which was restored by us some years ago as a family home. This much loved and cared for property is still more family home than holiday rental. We return from Australia every year to maintain, fix, renew and update everything that needs attention. Both the house and the apartment were freshly painted throughout in 2016. The apartment restoration was done with the same attention to quality and detail as the main house upstairs. The two properties can be rented separately or together for larger groups. Please see Property ID 231966. Totally independent from the main house, the apartment has its own driveway and entrance (although both are at ground level because of the slope of the land). It is very spacious, refreshingly cool in summer and cosy in winter. Additional power supply supports the appliances, it has reliable plumbing and strong water pressure, and all the windows have screens, internal cypress shutters and pretty views across the valley. Traditional farmhouse furniture offers ample space for guests to unpack and completely settle in. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals at home, and the comfortable living spaces and good range of DVDs make a quiet night in a viable option. The apartment provides welcome respite after a busy day's sightseeing. While it does not share the main house garden, it does have its own private little dining terrace which faces the valley and our cypress lined track, and of course there are the surrounding woodland areas. The forest offers up its bounty such as porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, even truffles, to intrepid locals who gather in small family groups to enjoy the tranquillity on sunny weekends. There are many lovely walks around the property, or just take a glass of Chianti to the bench in our little olive grove and watch the sunset. The property nestles in the hills 3.5 km above the village of San Polo in Chianti, so a car is a must. San Polo is slightly removed from the tourist turmoil yet it offers great essentials shopping, a fabulous restaurant and good road access to the must-see towns and sights of Tuscany. Proximity to Florence (about a 25 minute drive) gives us convenient autostrada access, although you can’t see, hear or even imagine an autostrada from this peaceful rural setting. Although we don’t live on site, we do have a loyal group of friends and retainers equipped to resolve any problems quickly and efficiently. A booklet of information at the apartment covers the A to Z of how everything works, plus it lists local support phone numbers. We encourage guests to sms us with any concerns so we can ensure a quick resolution of any issue. Ahead of the trip, all our guests receive a comprehensive booklet (PDF) of tips and recommendations for things to do and places to go. These are some of our favourite things, compiled over years of experience in Tuscany and other parts of Italy. It’s quite extensive and, like the house, is updated each year. Some guests find it useful, particularly first time visitors to Italy.

    This beautifully restored free-standing stone farmhouse, with a fully independent 90 square metre apartment below, provides a secluded haven after the bustle of sightseeing. Our Italian friends call it a jewel. Both the main house, and the apartment (see separate listing), can be rented separately or together for a larger group. Restored by us some years ago as a family home, with great attention to detail, this much loved and cared for property is still more family home than holiday rental. We return from Australia every year to maintain, fix, renew, update and replenish everything that needs attention. It was freshly painted throughout in 2016. Furnished and equipped to a high standard, it is a house to feel at home in. The generous country kitchen features a large antique table to share meals around. It is the heart of the home. A huge oak refectory table and antique boudoir grand loaded with family photos dominate the dining and living rooms. Sadly, having made the journey from the south of Italy to Australia then back to Tuscany, the piano is now more ornamental than musical. Antique farmhouse furniture offers ample space for guests to unpack and completely settle in, and the comfy Natuzzi sofas make a quiet night in with a DVD a viable option. Additional power supply supports the many appliances. There's reliable plumbing and strong water pressure. All windows have screens and internal cypress shutters. In summer the 400m elevation promotes refreshing breezes, while the thick stone walls help cool the interior. Efficient central heating keeps it warm and cosy in the cooler months. (Unfortunately the fireplace shown in the photo doesn't work.) The house nestles in the hills 3.5 km above the village of San Polo in Chianti, so a car is a must. San Polo is slightly removed from the tourist turmoil yet it offers great essentials shopping, a fabulous restaurant and good road access to the must-see towns and sights of Tuscany. Proximity to Florence gives us convenient autostrada access, although you can’t see, hear or even imagine an autostrada from our tranquil rural setting. Set in its own private fenced garden in a rural neighbourhood of farmhouses, olive groves and vegetable patches, each window of the house has a pretty outlook over the garden or the cultivated valley. The lawn is often scattered with daisies, and fireflies sometimes come out at night. The garden overlooks the Arno valley towards the Vallombrosa Monastery, nestled in the magnificent oak and pine woodlands of the central Apennines. The surrounding forest offers up its bounty of porcini mushrooms, wild asparagus, even truffles, to intrepid locals who gather in small family groups to walk off Sunday lunch and enjoy the peace on sunny weekends. Depending on the season, around the house and garden you may find grapes, plums, raspberries, apricots and figs. The squirrels usually get the hazelnuts and almonds. Although we don’t live on site, we do have a loyal group of friends and retainers equipped to resolve any problems quickly and efficiently.
