Description
The Yellow House is located in a very peaceful area, surrounded by greenery and the silence of the open countryside, an excellent location for those who desire total relaxation.

It can be reached in 3 minutes from the A12 motorway exit of Carrara. In just 3 minutes by car, you can reach free or private beaches, the exhibition center, or the center of Marina for shopping, taking secondary roads without traffic. There are also a few bicycles available, depending on availability at the moment.

The car parking is located in the inner courtyard and is part of a vast 4,000 square meter garden with a pool (access is NOT allowed for safety reasons). Tree-lined and grassy areas surround the Yellow House. The rooms are all easily accessible, with independent entrances, and from them, you can access the bright breakfast area located in the common living room or the wisteria-covered pergola terrace or the sun terrace.

ATTENTION! We accept reservations for a minimum of 2 nights. The minimum rate applies to stays of 2 nights or more, even for 1 night with a late checkout.

Breakfast
Typically Italian breakfast! So simple yet sufficient, with everything you need: liquid foods such as milk, coffee, tea, juices, yogurt, honey, and jams, and solid foods such as biscuits, croissants, toasted slices, cornflakes, and flakes.. PLEASE NOTE: unfortunately, as you all know, the law requires that all foods for B&Bs be pre-packaged! However, we are available to accommodate your specific requests. We will serve you at the previously agreed time, as there is no common buffet here.

Area
The Yellow House is located in the green countryside of northern Tuscany, in the municipality of Carrara, in the province of Massa-Carrara, just a few meters from the Ligurian border. It is 3 minutes away from the Carrara highway exit and approximately 1 km from the sea. Carrara is 5 km away, and Marina di Carrara is 1.5 km away. There are many points of interest in the area, including the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Ligurian Sea, as well as the mountains, the Apuan Alps, which are made of white marble (which can also be admired from here!). A little further away, there is the Tusco-Emilian Apennines, where you can even go skiing! The cities of northern Tuscany, such as Pisa, Lucca, Livorno, and Florence, are very close, as well as the Gulf of Poets in Liguria, with Portovenere and the famous Cinque Terre. Sarzana is 10 km away, La Spezia and the Gulf of Poets are 20 km away, Versilia, Pietrasanta, and Forte dei Marmi are 15 km away, and the Cinque Terre are from 30 to 40 km away. Lucca, Pisa, Livorno are 50 km away, and Florence is 120 km away. Carrara is famous for its marble, and the territory is beautiful with its combination of sea and magnificent mountains, the Apuan Alps. Just a few kilometers from Carrara, there is the village of Colonnata, famous for its Lardo Dop. The Fiere area, where various events are held throughout the year, is 1.5 km away.

Great stay at La Casa Giallina, in a quiet area with a very pleasant garden. Convenient location, quickly reachable from the highway exit, restaurants and center just a few kilometers away. Everything very well-kept and clean. Francesco, a welcoming and attentive host.

Property: 7 | Cleaning: 4 | Host: 4 | Location: 8 | Price/Quality: 4 | Breakfast: 4
The place is really nice, the peace and tranquility of the countryside 5 minutes by bike from the sea, but... Let's start with the cleanliness: in the bathroom there were practically empty bottles of shower gel, soap, and a large USED soap in the soap dish; the musty/moldy smell of the wardrobe made it unusable. The window in the room is equipped with a mosquito net, with a few small holes, while the window in the bathroom (which logically is opened more often) does not have one. Moving on to breakfast: packaged croissants (due to Covid19 regulations), but jams, honey, and butter in small bowls, really?!?; not a bottle of water, juice, or yogurt. The sugar bowl with brown sugar, which contained the amount of only one teaspoon nicely encrusted on the bottom, went back and forth for three days from the breakfast room to the host's kitchen. The bikes, of which I had made sure were available and defined by the owner as 'a bit old for anti-theft,' had not even been checked after the previous guests: flat tires and my husband's bike didn't brake. The pool: it was specified that it could not be used due to Covid19 safety, but after August 6th the ordinance of the Tuscany region allowed its use to guests of accommodation facilities with a green pass and following the rules of use. So remove the photo from the B&B presentation or organize to allow its use! We often go to B&Bs, but we had never experienced such little attention to those small details that pamper the guest and make them feel on vacation... what a shame...

The answer from the host:
Cara.. anzi no, solo: Lucia! anzitutto spero tanto di perderti come cliente, in secondo luogo sono sicuro che a chiunque capiti di leggere la tua recensione venga da esclamare: - mamma mia ma quanta cattiveria!!! Io ci vedo solo: vendetta! tremenda vendetta! A parte la dimenticanza di 1 flacone di shampo iniziato nella doccia il resto sono tutte fantasie di ripicca per non avervi concesso uso piscina (infatti voto 4 al gestore!) e poi ingrati come mai nessuno potevate esprimere i vostri problemi subito... comunque: A mai più...

The place is nice, new, and clean. It's a shame that due to Covid restrictions, the pool cannot be used, and there are no fresh croissants in the morning. Instead, they serve jam and honey (wildflower) in non-original containers, without being able to see the brand, expiry date, and ingredients. Nutella was also missing (darn it). The description mentions 'possibility of bicycles', but it turns out they are for a fee, not even quantified, with a surprise bill at the end of the vacation. It would be an added value since to reach every point of interest you need to take the car, nothing insurmountable. I would still come back.

The answer from the host:
Sig Marcazzan, lei pugnala alle spalle! Ma perché le cose non le dite quando siete qui?E Oltretutto senza ragione perché: la piscina non mai è stata a disposizione pubblica, i cibi sono preconfezionati per legge e non freschi di forno, le bici sono sempre gratis dove ha sentito che erano a pagamento? e poi la nutella bastava solo chiederla come anche i vasetti originali di marmellata, e poi proprio non capisco dove ha covato: conto a sorpresa? ma se c'è il tariffario!

Bella struttura, situata in una zona molto tranquilla ma comunque a soli 2km dal mare. Consiglio a tutte le coppie e alle famiglie che vogliono alloggiare in una struttura nuova e con un bel giardino. Al suo interno dispone di posto auto. La colazione è semplice ma non manca il necessario. In fine il proprietario è una persona molto gentile e acculturata, disponibile a dare suggerimenti sui luoghi da visitare.

La struttura è nuova è di buon gusto, la depandance al piano terra, è composta da: due camera da letto con bagno per ognuna delle camera, ingresso e soggiorno con cucina da specificare in fase di prenotazione se la si vuole usare, ottima soluzione per due coppie amiche o nucleo familiare. tutto il B&B è immerso nel verde ed in zona molto silenziosa. Realmente vicino alle spiagge sia libera che a pagamento di Marina di Carrara (due minuti di auto). Il B&B è dotato anche di piscina come mostrato dalle foto, ma l'uso è regolamentato, se la si vuole usare in maniera costante durante il soggiorno suggerisco di specificarlo in fase di prenotazione. La colazione sufficiente, nulla di particolare Latte e caffè con biscotti torta e brioche tutto confezionato, direi il tutto con ampio margine di miglioramento. Pulizia ineccepibile. Gestore cordiale e non invadente, ha grande rispetto della privacy dei suoi ospiti, ma sempre presente in caso di necessità. Rapporto qualità/prezzo e posto davvero ottimo, lo suggerisco a chi come noi cercava qualcosa di tranquillo ma vicino al mare. Ringrazio il Signor Francesco per l'ospitalità.
