Casale galeotti is based in Camaiore, a small village in Western Tuscany. You will find few English speakers, giving you a truly authentic experience. It’s location amongst the green, rolling mountains of the Apuan Alps allows you to totally escape reality. Camaiore may seem as though it doesn’t seem to have much to it, however, the pedestrianised road through the middle of the village has many modest coffee shops, bars, delicaticants and restaurants.
Casale Galeotti’s location could be a holiday makers dream come true, or your worst nightmare – if you are the designated driver. Being a short 20/30 minute drive to Pisa, Lucca and Forte dei Marmi, and an hour from Florence, this location allows for plenty of exploring.
The property itself is a 15 minute walk to the village of Camaiore. Hidden behind a modest pizzeria (best pizza I had in italy) you will find what can’t be described as anything but a hidden paradise. I tried typing out a description of the garden so many times but felt my words didn’t do it justice. So, here are the pictures which might reinforce my loss of words.
There property has two fully equipped, three bedroom apartments. Our only fault was the singular bathroom per apartment, but only a minor issue in the grand scheme of things.
Casale galeotti has a pool, a jacuzzi, bikes, the ability to have the chef cook for you and serve you from the comfort of your own garden, a pizzeria in the downstairs area, and the world’s most kind and accommodating hosts.

Pizzeria Vado E Torno:
The pizzeria in the down stairs of the apartments was some of the nicest pizza we had in Tuscany. The menu has every pizza imaginable, including the dreamy focaccia. It is similar to a regular pizza only the crust is much thinner, they served the focaccia like a sandwich with a crust on top of the toppings. They average out at a modest €9 per pizza.
When you get a bit fed up with the pizza and pasta head to Alan steak house, based on the main pedestrianised street in Camiore. The food was incredible, the meat so tender, and the sides very tasty. It is naturally more expensive than your typical pizza/pasta restaurant, but so worth it.
We went to Caffé Celero to get our morning coffee every day. In the morning the place is filled with delicious pastries, and espresso enthusiasts, but at night it turns into a little bar. Get yourself a cappacino in the morning but move to espressos after 11am to fit right in with the locals.
I hope you enjoy your stay, we all loved it and I can not recommend it enough. Casale Galeotti don’t have a website currently but you can view their property on HomeAway here.
