EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION
Villa Onirica is a wonderful property located in the countryside of Camaiore, a few km from the sea and the Versilia coast. Set on top of a small hill and surrounded by pine woods, an old cedar of Lebanon and beautiful gardens, the villa boasts a magnificent view of the Camaiore valley, with the Apuan Alps as a backdrop.
Dating back to the early 1900s, the villa was built as a country retreat by Ermete Zacconi, the famous theatre actor of the late 1800s who also acted with Eleonora Duse. Over the years, Villa Onirica has been frequented by the Italian intellectual and artistic élite from Pirandello to Vittorio Gassman and Mario Monicelli, among others.
The body of the villa has been completely renovated in 2017 and now includes all the modern conformts while retaining its unique “Art Nouveau” charm.
Surrounding the villa are three well-tended gardens with lawn and plenty of colourful flowers, a true oasis of peace and tranquility. Within the gardens there is also a lounge area to relax and a dining area, both covered with cloth gazebos and wooden pergolas.
The outdoor spaces are embellished by a large fenced pool (9.6 x 6 m) located at the edge of the forest, in the lower garden, reached by a short flight of stairs. The swimming pool is equipped with a solarium in Lecce stone, umbrellas, deck chairs, sun loungers, a ladder for entry / exit and an outdoor shower with hot water.

Reviews

    We have just returned from a fabulous week at Villa Onirica. This was a family multigenerational trip. Villa Onirica worked perfectly. From the moment we arrived we relaxed and felt totally spoilt. The family that own the villa take great pride in their home and it shows. We couldn’t fault anything. The villa was spotless thanks to the lovely Maria who visited every morning to clean. Daniel the owner spent time showing us how everything worked and was on at hand if we had needed any assistance. He was incredibly courteous and helpful. It was a joy to stay at Villa Onirica. The only minus point was having to pack and leave.

    Villa Onirica is a handsome villa that has recently been sensitively restored so that its original character and features have been retained, yet it is also very comfortable. The villa is very spacious and light, with high ceilings. It really feels like a home, rather than a rental property, with comfortable beds, a very well equipped kitchen, satellite TV, good shutters/curtains in every bedroom, and comprehensive air conditioning everywhere. Extensive wifi coverage of the outdoor sitting areas and swimming pool is a thoughtful touch.
    The photos don't do justice to the outdoor living space set among the beautiful garden, including separate outdoor sitting and dining areas, as well as the roof top sitting / sunbathing area, which gets a very pleasant breeze especially during the midday heat. We made extensive use of these, and ate nearly all our meals outside. The swimming pool is also fantastic, getting sun most of the day, and was consistently a pleasant temperature for swimming even first thing in the morning.
    The house is located on a small hill, giving a good sense of peace and privacy with very few other houses nearby, and a lovely view of the mountains beyond Camaiore. Camaiore itself is a short drive away, a pleasant but not touristy typical Tuscan town with a great range of local shops and restaurants, while better-known tourist destinations such as Lido di Camaiore, Forte Dei Marmi and Pietrasanta are an easily accessible 15-25 minute drive.
    Daniel, the villa's owner, was a gracious and thoughtful host, taking considerable time and effort to show us round the house, and recommending a number of excellent local shops and restaurants. He was very responsive to any questions, and arranged for us a chef specializing in local cuisine who cooked several delicious dinners in the villa, which we particularly enjoyed. Daniel really went out of his way to help us make the most of our week at Villa Onirica, for which we were very grateful.
    We hope very much to return to delightful Villa Onirica soon, and strongly recommend it to any prospective guests.
