Set in one of the most picturesque villages of the area with a central piazza entered through a stone archway. The village is surrounded by chestnut woods and olive groves and the larger village of Licciana Nardi is just 2 km where there is a good selection of shops, bank, schools and restaurant/pizzeria. It is a lovely walk down the hill to Licciana for a morning coffee or for an aperitivo in the bar. A van from the local bakers comes to the village each morning with fresh bread and focaccia and there is a friendly local community, always ready to chat.
The property is close to Licciana Nardi with 13th century pedestrian ‘borgo’ flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. There is also a bank, two schools, restaurants and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and offers a good selection of amenities. Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The hills which encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are extremely inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. 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 (UNESCO World Heritage site) 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 around an hour away.
