WHAT TO BEAR IN MIND
The property is set in the hills. Possibility of converting an attic space.
There is a shop and restaurant 4 km away. The town of Pontremoli with supermarkests, station lovely piazzas and shops is 13 km, Parma 90 km, Ski resort 32 km, Beaches 50 km, Pisa (airport) 110 km.
The ancient town of Pontremoli has been 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.
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.
