Full description:

La Taverna is a stylishly restored bijou hideaway for 2+2 with a pool, in the heart of an ancient hill village in Lunigiana, a quiet, undiscovered area of Tuscany. Sympathetically restored with original stone walls and beamed ceiling with iron and glass doors opening out onto the small lawned garden and courtyard.

The property is approached from the street down a characteristic stone arched passageway opening onto a beautiful walled courtyard with views over the valley to the hills beyond. The courtyard has a table and chairs for alfresco meals.

Wrought iron and glass doors lead into the living room. The walls are entirely of honey coloured stone, with a terracotta paved floor and chestnut beamed ceiling.

The front part of this large room has the kitchen area with an ancient marble sink and
marble worktop, stainless steel gas hob, microwave oven and fridge with freezer compartment.

There is marble table and medieval-style wrought iron chairs for eating indoors.
Behind is the cosy sitting area, with stylish modern chairs and a sofa -bed, enabling friends and family to stay.
At the back a door leads into the bathroom with a spacious shower built across the end.
A doorway leads through to the bedroom, also entirely built of stone with large beams supporting the ceiling.
At the back is a walk-in wardrobe and store room, also with folding bed for an extra person. Set into a corner at the front, under the window, is a luxurious jacuzzi-style spa bath.
Glass doors open out onto the private lawned garden beside the courtyard.

A few steps away from the courtyard is the large (10m x 5m) swimming pool with its brightly coloured oleanders and a stunning view across the valley. The pool has lights for those wishing to swim after sunset. The pool and garden costs are shared with the other three houses, making it very economical to run.
The house is already set up as a rental property, well looked after by a couple in the village.

Being in the hills, it rarely gets excessively hot even at the height of summer. And with metre thick walls, La Taverna maintains a very steady temperature in all weathers.

Prota is a friendly village. Just three minutes’ walk away there is a local cafè and above this is a restaurant, popular with locals, especially on a Sunday lunchtime. Fresh bread can be ordered at the bar and arrives around 9am each morning..

There is parking in the piazza which is just a couple of minutes’ walk away. This lane is only used for horses, cows and the odd small tractor. Prota is very much a farming community and the people are very friendly, often bringing fresh produce including cherries and plums to the door.

Down in the valley below tumbles the lovely Taverone river. A short drive takes you into the Apennine mountains, with many lakes to enjoy. It is an ideal area for walking.
The Ligurian coast is about 40 minutes away at Lerici, where you can take boats out to the Cinque Terre and Portofino. Pisa is only an hour away.

There is a large supermarket just outside Aulla which can be reached in 20 minutes
although you can buy most things in Licciana Nardi which is only 10 mins away. A pleasant stroll down the old ‘borgo’ brings you to a good butcher, grocers, etc and bar.
Apart from Guido’s trattoria in the village, Galletti’s is at the bottom of the hill, with several other good trattorias within a few minutes’ drive.

There are beautiful drives over the hills with stunning mountain views and you can drive
from Comano to Fivizzano, a bustling market town with bars around the Piazza in one direction and to the picturesque old town of Bagnone in the other. On a hot day you can walk up the clear flowing rivers to deep pools for swimming.

1 bedroom, 1 reception room, bathroom, terrace, private garden, swimming pool - fully serviced by people in the village - key in hand – ready for rentals.
