About the Area:
Camaiore is a lovely and vibrant town situated in the area known as Versilia, on Tuscany’s western coast. It is surrounded by mountains and only 8 kilometers from the seaside resort of Lido di Camaiore, with its beautiful beaches, cafes and restaurants. It is also very close by car and public transportation to the famous towns of Lucca, Viareggio, Pietrasanta and Forti dei Marmi. The town of Camaiore itself is complete with parks, cafes, a good grocery store and plenty of restaurants and specialty shops. There are lovely biking and walking trails in the immediate area (we have two bicycles available for rent).

Our studio where we make beautiful Murano glass beads by hand and create our unique jewelry line is also on the premises, right next to the Guest House. You are welcome to browse our large selection of jewelry, beads and supplies, and to either select and purchase items to take with you, or to even sit at one of our tables and create your own keepsake pieces, with our assistance, as needed. Plus, glass bead making and jewelry design classes are available.
