The town of Licciana Nardi with a selection of shops, restaurants and coffee bars is within a five minute drive.
Licciana Nardi in Lunigiana is a small town in the Taverone valley with 13th century pedestrian street (the ‘borgo’) flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. The castle is linked to the baroque church by a covered bridge so the nobles had direct access to prayer and dealings with the local priest. There is also a bank, schools, restaurants and medical facilities. Licciana has a river running through it which offers a great recreational space in the summer months with beautiful river swimming in the clear rock pools. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and offers a good selection of amenities.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the spectacular Ligurian coastline is close by. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing in the summer. 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.
Distances: Licciana Nardi 5 km, Aulla (supermarkets, autostrada, trains) 8 km, Lerici (beaches) 35 km, Cinque Terre 45 km, Lucca 90 km, Pisa (airport) 95 km.
