The entrance is into a hallway, then up the open marble staircase to a hall, living room, nicely fitted modern kitchen which opens on to the wonderful terrace. This terrace is approx 13m x 4m and forms a great feature in the property.

There are three good bedrooms with plenty of space and light and a bathroom with shower and with plumbing for a washing machine. High ceilings and large windows throughout making for a light and airy atmosphere.

In the village there is a train station and the railway line runs quite close to the property, at the back. The trains are quiet electric/diesel and run infrequently. They do not run at all at night. Walking distance to a good selection of shops, coffee bars and restaurants.
Easy access on good roads and private gated driveway. All mains services with heating from a pellet stuffa throughout. Solar panels for hot water. Train station in walking distance.
The local town of Monzone has a number of shops and services and, importantly, a train station which is within walking distance. The town of Fivizzano (10km) has 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 music festival. There is a hospital, shops and restaurants in the town. In the other direction, towards the sea, is Fosdinovo (20 km), a walled town dominated by a stunning Malaspina Castle dating back to the fourteenth century. The town is famous for embroidery on precious linen and Pope Francis’s robe was embroidered by the ladies of Fosdinovo. The town overlooks the beaches of the Versilia coast and it is reached by a scenic road which meanders through the olive groves above the market town of Sarzana. Nearby (5 km) is the elegant town of Equi Terme, famous for centuries for the natural warm spring waters, now a spa and wellness retreat.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage but for lovers of the coast the sea is only 30-40 mins. 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 just over an hour away.
