Characterful village 2 bed house in immaculate condition, in a lovely setting with views.
Wonderful village house in immaculate, move-in condition, set in a tranquil, peaceful village location, yet very easily accessible to a main town.
The house is set in a small sweet village, on a ‘no-through road’. The house is approached through electric gates, with private parking, into a wonderful courtyard with wide-open views over the rolling countryside. The courtyard is in full sun for much of the day. External stairs lead up from the courtyard to a full-width balcony, perfect for an aperitif.
The front door of the house is from the balcony. The door leads into a welcoming hallway with a large living room, separate dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, then on through to two bedrooms and a bathroom. This is all on one level. The condition is immaculate.
From the courtyard level there is an entry into a ‘taverna’. This is a beautifully equipped sitting room/living room/ kitchen area, an easy space to relax and entertain in. This flows through to a bathroom and another room, which could be used as an additional bedroom. This has its own entrance from the courtyard so is perfect as a guest unit, or separate rental space.
The courtyard offers exceptional views, is nicely finished with paving and planting. It is in a great private spot for barbecuing or just lazing in the sun. Little maintenance is required and this would make a great option as a ‘lock up and leave’ holiday house or rental property.
This house is ideally located, offering exceptional peace and tranquility, but close to all amenities.
Aulla is one the largest towns in Lunigiana; it has a good selection of shops, supermarkets, medical centre, public transport and links to the motorway. The historic town centre is the site of a marble fountain built in the year of Italian unity and the 16th century fortress called La Brunella is perched on a hill overlooking the town. The fortress now houses the Museum of Natural History of Lunigiana. Enjoy the colourful market hosted in the town centre every Saturday morning.
Lunigiana (pronounced Loonee-janna) is a magical part of Tuscany starting with its name the ‘Land of the Moon’. The hills that 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 but for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hours’ drive away.
Lunigiana is special and has been likened to a magical kingdom. It is not only the breath-taking scenery with its abundance of medieval castles but you simply feel a huge sense of well-being radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind friendly locals and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community among people here that is rarely seen in modern day life.
The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing in the summer while the snow clad mountains offer skiing in the local resorts during the winter months and are each a short drive away. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all within an hours’ drive.
