Location

Villa Olive is located about 10km far from the sea, in a small town with mountains behind it that enjoys peace and tranquillity: Vado di Camaiore. Here you can find everything you need, grocery shop, pharmacy, bar, post office and the bank. It is easily reachable by bike.

Very nice is the Badia di Camaiore, located right outside the town https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badia_di_Camaiore.

Camaiore is located in the middle of a magical area of Tuscany between the Apuan Alps and the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is in Versilia, the coastal area most renowned and active of the whole Tuscany.

Villa Olive is ideally located between two of the most popular and visited location of Versilia, Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi.

Viareggio takes its name after a latin name Via Regis (literally King’s Road), the name of a road that was built in the Middle Ages along the coast and that still exists today. The elegant and very refined bathing Versilia resort, Viareggio (also called the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian”), is a world-famous tourist destination.

It is an entertainment centre, the town of the carnival (the Carnival of Viareggio, celebrated in January-February) and of the Versilia nightlife, considered to represent the soul of Tuscan nightlife with its high-level and fashionable clubs. For example, Bagno Balena (http://www.b2k.it) which by day is a watermark and aquarium for families and at night turns into a hip night club with pools you can swim and dance in all night. 

Forte dei Marmi is located only 15km from the property and from Viareggio. It is reputed to be one of the most appreciated seaside resorts in Tuscany, maybe because it has always been chosen by actors, politic authorities and industrialists for their holidays. In fact, here you can take a stroll among many luxurious private villas, shops and restaurants. For example a sight of interest is Villa Agnelli (the current Hotel Augustus – http://www.augustus-hotel.it/en/) equipped with an underpass leading directly to the beach and the Capannina di Franceschi club, (http://www.lacapanninadifranceschi.com) the oldest Italian night club, inaugurated in 1929 and still attracting thousands of people thanks to its ’70s theme parties. There is also a wide range of superb hotels and bathing establishments all along the town.
