WHERE IS IT ?
Set on the hills of Podenzana with numerous restaurants serving the local traditional fare. The larger town of Aulla is just a few minutes drive.
Distances: Aulla with train station (Cinque Terre 30 mins) 7 km, beaches 30 km, ski resort 40 km, Pisa (airport) 90 km.
Podenzana is a series of villages strung along the hill above the town of Aulla and stretching to the other side down towards Ceparana. Podenzana is famous for panigacci and there are numerous restaurants offering this speciality. A crisp thick pancake cooked in terracotta dishes over the embers of the fire and served in baskets with cream cheese and a tray of assorted meats from Parma ham to salami and pancetta - sandwich them together, eat with your fingers sipping the local red wine. Delicious.
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.
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.
