Beautiful village house, simply restored, offering spacious and practical accommodation with pretty garden and pool.
Immaculately simple restoration of a spacious village house, set in a hillside village, with pretty walled garden and pool.
Just a very short walk from the village parking area takes you to the courtyard where you enter the property. The kitchen is simple but offers everything you could need. On this level, is also a large sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The feel is light and airy, with a good connection from inside to outside.
Downstairs are a further two rooms (one used as an occasional bedroom) and another bathroom. There is direct access to this level from the village lane, and out to the pool area.
The house is only a short distance (3 kms) from the ancient town of Fivizzano.
Fivizzano is 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 is a magical part of Tuscany. 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.
