Stone house set in a hilltop village with views over the surrounding hills.
The property offers character accommodation in a picturesque location with outstanding views of the valley and hills from the terrace and balcony.
Accommodation is on one level with cantina rooms on the lower ground floor.
Access to a spacious living room, kitchen with balcony that runs along the front of the house and leads to terrace with old stone bread oven and a pergola. There are also 2 bedrooms and bathroom, which has been recently refurbished. There is a further room that can be used as a third bedroom or study.
On the lower ground level there are 7 cantina rooms, some with vaulted ceilings and are accessed from a common stone-flagged courtyard.
The village is situated an easy drive from Fivizzano (6 km) a medieval walled town with a central cobbled piazza and is often referred to as the Florence of Lunigiana. The bustling town hosts many cultural events over the summer with concerts in the piazza and reenactments of medieval parades. With its musical heritage the town also attracts international musicians during its annual folk music festival. There is a hospital, shops and restaurants 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.
