Beautifully situated two bed house, at the edge of a village, amongst olive groves and with breathtaking views. The property has gates to private parking porch, and a pretty, private garden and parking.
The house of 100 sqm has a cantina and store room on the ground floor; external stairs lead to a balcony and the entrance to a living room with fireplace, large kitchen/ dining room with views, two bedrooms and bathroom with shower, so the accommodation is all on one level, with a sunny balcony across the full width. There is also a garden of 115 meters sq with lovely views. The house is connected to main services including wifi broadband and central heating. The accommodation is bright and each window looks out to the view of the old village, the castle and the Apuan mountains.
There are shops and a coffee bar in the pretty village of Codiponte which is in the Lunigiana region of northern Tuscany. There are beautiful views to the Apuan mountains and cobbled lanes lead from the town to the river with rock pool for swimming. The larger village of Gragnola nearby has a wider selection of shops and a train station with direct trains to Lucca. The ancient spa town of Equi Terme with open air thermal water pool, river swimming and restaurants is a lovely place to spend the day. The property is set in a village within the municipality of Casola in Lunigiana which is a small town set on the hill above the Aulella river with the houses huddled around its central stone tower. The area is famous for stone statues which date back to the Neolithic age and are thought to be gifts to the moon goddess.
Lunigiana is a magical place to live and visit. While it remains a comparatively undiscovered and unspoilt part of Tuscany, it is neither isolated nor remote. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hour away. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are each just over an hour.
