APARTMENT 'LA TORRE'

Pontremoli Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 charming apartments with terrace in a spacious garden with magnificent view.

This lovingly restored ancient holiday home is situated at the edge of the hamlet of Ponticello which is one of the oldest medieval villages of Lunigiana, a comparatively undiscovered and unspoiled area of Tuscany, surrounded by wooded hills and magnificent mountain views. Not far from the Cinque Terre and the sea, the house is divided into three apartments, with independent entrance, tastefully furnished with old country furniture and terracotta floors. Outside, the terraces and the garden offer outdoor dining furniture and a BBQ - perfect for al fresco dining. The large garden features a private swimming pool. Close to all the local amenities for shopping, eating out and sight seeing it is also a perfect place to rest and relax.

Lunigiana: Unknown to the crowds yet close to Florence Pisa Lucca and the Cinque Terre is the northern corner of Tuscany, an unspoiled area of breathtaking natural beauty set between the Apennine mountains and the Mediterranean sea. In this sunlit land of chestnut covered hills crowned by medieval villages you will enjoy the very best of Italy - wonderful landscapes, good food and a warm Italian welcome.The region is scattered with medieval villages perched high above green wooded valleys, ancient castles built by the Malaspina family (it's also named the hundred castles valley) breathtaking views across fertile river valleys and dramatic mountain vistas: Tuscany's best kept secret. Hidden away from the tourist trail the Lunigiana nevertheless enjoys easy access to the main cultural centres of Northern Italy and the sophisticated coastal villages of the Ligurian coast.

The 'Cinque Terre': The Lunigiana can be considered the most uncontaminated area of Tuscany: hills woods rivers and cascades. This magical unspoilt area offers the tourist a mild climate, a calm and soothing atmosphere. The area caters for all offering museums thermal waters sport centres fishing and trekking on horse back or by foot. Added to all of this is the folklore traditions and cuisine (there are a number of restaurants in the surrounding area offering traditional local cooking at reasonable prices). There is something for everyone and last but not least wonderful friendly people who will give you a warm welcome. Join them in celebrating their many festas throughout the summer. Close to Lunigiana is the Bay of Poets and the Cinque Terre, the beautiful stretch of coastline with its rocky coves and sandy beaches which is famous for the 5 fishing villages that cling to the cliffs along the spectacular Ligurian coastline.

The surrounding area: The cultural centres of Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Parma and Genoa are also all within an easy drive: Florence is 1.5 hrs drive. Lucca (Puccini's birthplace) 1hr drive, is a delightful city: hire a bike and pedal around the city walls. Parma (rich with Verdi connections) or Pisa (with its famous tower) are both 1hr away. Close by are the picturesque ports of Lerici and Porto Venere ( a UNESCO heritage town) and the famous Cinque Terre. Nearby are the ancient cities of Sarzana, the beaches at Forte di Marmi, the 'Carrara' marble mountains and the Garfargnana national park .The sandy beaches at Marinella and Marina di Massa Are 30 min away. Many freshwater rock pools, made by the fast flowing water from melting snow are at walking distance. The marble quarries of the Alpi Apuane (from where Michelangelo choose the marble for his statues) 45 min away by car are open to visitors.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My daughter and I have had a lovely relaxing week at La Casatorre. The apartment was perfect for us and the pool is wonderful. We were lucky enough to be here at the time of the village festival (15 to 17 August) which was very impressive and brought an extra dimension to evenings in the village.

MERCI

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons trouvé la propriété très belle et notre appartement très agréable notamment grâce a la grande terrasse dont nous avons bénéficié. La piscine est très belle, proche et offre une vue magnifique sur les montagnes et le village. Le coin cuisine est sympa et la chambre spacieuse. L’intérieur a été peint et décoré avec goût. Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine.
Merci pour votre gentillesse!

WONDERFUL ACCOMODATION

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful accommodation! We travel widely and often in Europe, having lived in Germany for nine years. La Casa Torre is a comfortable holiday rental, convenient to country peace and city excitement. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace and an easy walk up to the mountain to Caprio. For a pleasant drive, visit the hill towns in this area (with a good road map). Drop over to Pontremoli – excellent food by the Duomo. The train station connects you to bigger cities. Take the A 15 south to the outstanding sights and shopping (Lucca should not be passed) and the coast.
Close by grocery markets are well stocked in Filattiera and Villafranca. The local food and wine are very good. Fresh food and vegetables are outstanding.
All-in-all la Casa Torre is hard to beat anytime by any place. It was a great find for us by Internet and we will suggest it to others.

3 FANTASTIC WEEKS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at “Casa Torre” for 3 weeks and we really enjoyed it. We visited Pisa, Florence, Portovenere, Cinque Terre, Carrara, the beautiful coast and many other nice places.
Our children loved the pool and the huge garden where they played football.
We loved the breakfast and the evenings on the spacious terrace, overlooking the pool and the mountains. The apartment is very nice, clean and tastefully furnished. We loved everything of our holiday and we’ll surely come back next year!

AWAY FROM THE CROWD

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Torre. We were really lucky that we found this comfortable and nice accommodation in the internet. The lovely interior, the garden, the terrace (where we had wonderful breakfast and dinner) the surrounding villages convinced us to return hopefully very soon. In short: this is the perfect place to relax!
It has been a very nice time and we regretted that we had to live.

PEACEFULL, MAGICAL AND ALL COMFORT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Three days greatly spent with family and friends in the heart of Italy. Green all around, pure and fresh air, no smog, no lorries, no chaos, none of that spoil big cities but open wide and wild areas.

The unique kind of architecture still being used in this beautiful area talks by itself of a peace Italy's history.

The "Casatorre" holiday house is really very well equipped with very functional flats/rooms and yet refined and comfortable.
I really recommend it to every one!!

Car: recommended

The medieval hamlet of Ponticello in Tuscany is all made of stone and cars are not allowed in its narrow streets. It is a perfect place not only for those who enjoy cultural daily trips to most known art cities like Pisa, Lucca Florence Genoa or Parma, but also for guests who like discovering nearby, less famous but nonetheless, very interesting and charming villages like Sarzana, Pontremoli, Filattiera, Filetto, Bagnone, Malgrate, and Castagnetoli. In 30 minutes you can reach the sea area, and in less than an hour the Natural Park of “Le Cinque Terre” close to La Spezia and visit the enchanting villages of Lerici, Portovenere, Monterosso, Vernazza, Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Tellaro, and swim and sunbathe on this unique coast. There are also very nice restaurants where you can enjoy the tasty food and superb vine of the surroundings.
