WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT THIS PROPERTY:
A courtyard to the front of the property leads onto a terrace equipped with sun table and chairs for 'al fresco' dining. A few lemon trees added for
fragrance and ambience provide an area to relax and take in the peace and quiet.
Underneath the house are vaulted archways where years ago farmers would process their produce and today still provide a shaded area to escape the midday sun.
Parking is available just outside in the courtyard, the smaller the car the better as the village was built before cars were considered. There is additional parking at the top of the village.
THINGS TO BEAR IN MIND
The majority of the furniture will be included in the sale.
WHERE IS IT
The neighbouring village, a short drive away, has a post office and restaurant. The town of Pontremoli just 10 minutes away by car is a medieval market town with castle and excellent restaurants, shops, hospital, a train station and motorway access.
The ancient town was built between two rivers as an expansion of the central castle. Wherever you look you will find elegant palazzos with internal courtyards overlooking the river. The cobbled lanes leading up to the castle are flanked with stone houses and interlinking arches. The twin arched roman bridges are the gateway on either side of the town. Pontremoli has a good selection of shops and restaurants, a theatre, hospital and the famous Castello which houses a museum. The central Piazza della Repubblica has traditional cafes where you can mingle with writers as the town hosts the most important book prize. Don't miss the imposing white marble Cathederal and colourful street market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Lunigiana (pronounced Loonee-janna) is a magical part of Tuscany starting with its name the 'Land of the Moon'. 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.
