3 Bedroom detached house with garden and garage set at the edge of a village.
IL PIOPPO – The house is on two levels with cantina, kitchen, living room, bathroom and store room on ground floor; three bedrooms, bathroom and terraces on first floor. The land of approx. 850 m sq is planted with fruit trees. There is a detached garage at the edge of the property.
The house requires some modernisation.
There is a bar and family run restaurant in the village and a short drive (2 km) leads to a larger village with amenities. At the top of the Taverone valley is the town of Comano with a backdrop of the breathtaking Apennine Mountains. There are many walking trails leading from the villages around Comano to the surrounding hills. The town hosts an annual horse festival in the summer and offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and sport facilities.
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 wellbeing radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind friendly locals and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community amongst 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.
