Eco B&B Villa Torretta
A typical tuscan stone house, two cosy rooms with lots of windows on the green, a veranda where you can share stories and smiles with me and guests, lots of different cups, each one of us.
At the Villa Torretta Bed and Breakfast you can simply stay, or you can dream, fly, be surprised, be moved and be enchanted by the atmosphere.
I live in a very small house, but my windows look out on a very large world.
The temple bedroom
Very large, about 24 m², with double bed, air conditioning, heating. Balcony with garden view. Baby bed and cot (children up to 10 years) available upon request. On the floor there is a bathroom with WC and shower.
It is the room for those seeking change, serenity, joy and freedom.
Bedroom for 2 persons about 20 m2 / 215 sqft with king size or twin bed. Air conditioning, Heating. View of garden.
Private bathroom with toilet, wash basin, bidet, shower, hairdryer.
For those who have their heads in the cloud.
The room of silence
Small livingroom where you can find many books to read and information about Tuscany, where you find a comfortable sofa, covers and cushions, and the TV (chrome cast). The silence room leads directly to the outside, to the parking level.
Little veranda covered, with table, boiler, coffee machine.
Gaia serves breakfast at home in the dining room, or on the large outdoor table on the veranda, depending on the climate. Breakfast is made with artisanal local products from our area.
The outdoor veranda offers a large wooden table, with an intimate view of the swimming pool. The vegetation around makes the space cozy and welcoming, sheltered from the garden, at the same time allowing you to enjoy a beautiful view of the swimming pool.
You can stay for short periods, but remember that the journey takes at least 5 days:
a day to land, a day to let go, a day to explore, a day to get excited and rejoice and the last day to realize and bring with you a deep memory.

The story of the house
The Torretta house was originally composed of two family units with separate access. When we bought it in the 90's we have combined them, restored the interior and harmonized the outdoor spaces to create a more livable and comfortable common court with the Stalletta House.
In 2000, while executing main due to other structural upgrades, we have rationalized the spaces, created and furnished the internal stairway and the new bathrooms. In 2011 we installed new window frames to improve the insulation and completely redecorated all the rooms, by choosing a country eco chic style to make it brighter and cozy.
The energy comes from an indipendent solar photovoltaic system. In 2018 we installed a battery system to store solar energy.
Gaia, your host
Let me introduce myself, I am Gaia, born and raised in Milan, I'm tuscan for passion. Passion for the land and the nature of this place nestled among the hills of Camaiore, on the slopes of the Apuan Alps. I chose a rural life, I produce my food and I am careful to have a sustainable lifestyle. In addition to the hospitality I dedicate myself to music, the voice is my instrument, a way to express and discovery of myself. In winter the Temple bedroom is used as an open space for experimentation, for music, movement, dance and meditation.
My house is not just a B&B but it is also a point of reference for musician friends, holistic operators, artists who find comfort in the peace of this place once a week when the home is open to all of them to share our passions and dedicate ourselves to take that time to experience beauty together. If you have a pleasure you can join us during your stay.
I am present with discretion taking care of the house in every detail, and preparing breakfast with love, to sweeten your stay. The B&B accommodates 4 people in two large double bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. Privacy is guaranteed, in fact, each room is located on a different floor of the house.
