Situated in a pretty village lane, this country house has been tastefully restored in the traditional Tuscan style preserving the original character features.
Set over three floors, the property is divided as follows:
Ground Floor: entrance hall, bathroom, 2 bedrooms with access from the courtyard;
First Floor: dining-room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, bathroom and landing;
Second Floor: large living-room with exposed beams and terrace of 8 sqm.
Outside, there is a beautiful courtyard (135 sqm) for outside dining, which also provides access to the cantinas, which leads on to the garden and swimming pool. Breathtaking views to the mountains.
Fivizzano a medieval walled town with central cobbled piazza and fountain is 15 km away. The town hosts many cultural events over the summer with concerts in the piazza and re enactments of medieval parades. There are excellent shops, restaurants, hospital and tennis court in the town.
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.
