Sea, mountains, hills, endless sandy beaches and rich Mediterranean vegetation: very few other places are capable of offering such a variety of environments within a relatively limited space. This explain perfectly the charm of Versilia, symbol of fun and light heartedness, but also culture, nature and glamour. The Versilia coastline stretches across roughly 165 km of sandy beaches and mountains which reach up to 1800m above sea level. It is situated in northern Tuscany, between the Cinquale in the north, the Apuane Alps in the east, the Tyrrhenian Sea in the west and lake Massaciuccoli in the South. Some famous localities are Pietrasanta, rich in art, culture and character, Forte dei Marmi vip tourist capital of the region, Viareggio with its liberty style buildings, carnival and lively nightlife. Il Piccolo Nido is only 8kms far from the beaches of Cinquale.
By contrast, Alta Versilia, made up of Servezza and Stazzema, are more peaceful and tranquil retreat. Camaiore, ideally located between sea and mountains, offers a bit of everything. Along the coast several pinewood areas like those of La Versiliana in Marina di Pietrasanta and of Viareggio. Here you can find everything you need to spend a day in total relax and playing with your kids: kiosks for cool drinks or homemade doughnuts, restaurants, areas where you can play with your dog, carousels, puppet shows, bike rentals, bike trails, tennis courts, pony riding etc. The mountain area of Versilia, inlcuded in the Natural Park of the Apuan Alps, is covered with a well develop net of hiking trails which allows you to explore this territory on foot, on horseback or with a mountain bike.
