Full Description

Beautifully restored 'Casa Torre', a tower house, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, set in a stunning hilltop village, just 20 minutes from the sea.

Lovely village house of 120 sqm (plus cantina of another 40 sqm - so a total of 160 sqm) set in the little pedestrian lanes of the hilltop village, immaculately restored with two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The restoration was carried out in 2016 and is of the highest quality.

The house is entered from the lane to an entrance hall.

On the ground floor is a double bedroom with bathroom (with bath)

On the first floor is a double bedroom with bathroom (bath and shower)

On the second floor is the living space. There is a lovely open kitchen/dining room/sitting room with wonderful view over the hills towards the sea.

Below the house is a cantina space of 40 sqm.

The village is set in above Sarzana and La Spezia. It is close to the market town of Sarzana, a vibrant medieval market town with large elegant central piazza and cobbled lanes meander through the town which are flanked with coffee shops and antique stores. During the summer months Sarzana opens up for evenings which can be spent wandering the cobbled lanes, with antiques and bric-a-brac, and often hosts festivals from dining in the piazza to concerts to open air events along the lanes.

Both the coastal areas of Versilia and the Gulf of the Poets are 7 km away with good public transport connections. Sarzana also has a station with direct trains to Pisa, Genova, Lucca, Florence, the Cinque Terre.

The Cinque Terre are five picturesque villages strung along the narrow coastline north of the Gulf of the Poets and La Spezia with pretty coves, beaches and are accessed on foot, boat or with the local train that shuttles between the villages. Anyone visiting the Cinque Terre should take a walk along the cliff paths which link one village to the next, stop in one of the bars or restaurants and try the anchovies marinated in olive oil and garlic, served with bread and delicate white wine made from the grapes that grow up the steep terraces above the villages. The Cinque Terre are a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Gulf of the Poets is an enclave with a group of three islands at its tip, fishing villages with exceptional fish restaurants, as well as opportunities for sailing, canoeing, snorkelling or just relaxing on one of the beaches hidden in craggy bays around Fiascherino or Tellaro. The easiest way to get around the gulf is by boat which runs between Lerici, La Spezia and Portovenere or on to The Cinque Terre. The name Gulf of the Poets is from the literary connection as some of the world’s most famous poets including Shelley, Byron and D H Lawrence lived here at some time.

Distances: Sarzana 10 kms, La Spezia 10 kms, beaches 12 kms, Lerici 12 kms, Pisa (airport) 70 kms.
