After searching far and wide for a property that would suit our needs (Live, Work, Teach, Host, Garden, THRIVE), we are thrilled to announce our upcoming move to the town of Camaiore in Western Tuscany (Lucca Province).
With the mountains at our backs and the sea just 5 kilometers away, the position is wonderful. The bustling town of Camaiore is smallish by most standards but certainly much larger than our current village of Apricale which weighs in at just 614 residents. And Camaiore is unique in today’s world as it is primarily populated with locally owned businesses rather than the same old corporate types you see in most cities.
What’s in the area? In addition to mountain hiking, stunning waterfalls and the buzz of Tuscany’s seaside, the beautiful art town of Pietrasanta is just a few minutes away (where Michelangelo purchased his marble), as are the Forte Dei Marmi and Viareggio beaches.
Seeking something more? Florence is just over an hour away in one direction, as is Genoa in the other (with the stunning Cinque Terre villages in between). And let’s not forget the beautiful walled town of Lucca (25 minutes), Pisa (35 minutes), the famous marble quarries of Carrara (20 minutes)… Need I go on?
We are now accepting reservations for classes in our Camaiore studio from 15 June, 2017. And, for the first time, we are also able to offer on-site accommodation; a charming studio suite with private access, bathroom (with shower) and even a fireplace for our winter guests. The suite opens directly onto the garden and we even have an outdoor pizza oven (that we still need to master)!
The area is easily accessible by car, bus and train (train stop is Lido Di Camaiore). Camaiore town center is foot and bike friendly and just a few minutes walk from our door.
So make plans now to join us in our new home – we look forward to your visit!
