With a private driveway to covered parking, the property is easily accessible. Set on the hillside, much of the garden is terraced with olive and oleander trees, and there is also an area of flat garden, all with breathtaking views. The entrance is from a covered porch and the accommodation comprises: on the ground floor is a dining room, living room with fireplace, kitchen with a door to the garden, larder with sink; upstairs are two double bedrooms plus a smaller bedroom or dressing room/walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom with shower; upstairs again is another double bedroom with views and another bathroom with shower.
The rooms are light and spacious with good connections so the house flows very well. The windows are large and the sunshine streams through. All services connected and there is central heating powered by the wood burning stove.
The village is set between the pretty Lunigiana towns of Bagnone and Licciana Nardi, on a quiet road with outstanding views. There is an easy walk to a beautiful stream for paddling and cooling off from the hot summer sun.
Bagnone is a charming medieval town dominated by a castle and a cobbled piazza is ideal for watching the local town life go by while sipping a cappuccino in one of the many cafès. A river runs through the middle of the town and cobbled lanes with interlinking archways and restaurants are hidden under the stone vaults. Shops offering local produce and the backdrop of the mountains make this a particularly pretty town in the area. Licciana Nardi is a town in the Taverone valley with 13th century pedestrian street flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. The castle is linked to the baroque church by a covered bridge so that the nobles had direct access to prayer and dealings with the local priest. There are also a bank, schools, restaurants and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and offers a good selection of amenities.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hour away. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre (UNESCO World Heritage site) are ideal for swimming and sailing in the summer. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all just over an hour away.
