APARTMENT ORSARO

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.

One of our best holidays

  • Submitted: Sep 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at La Casatorre: the garden and the pool, the view of the mountains, the cosiness with the other guests and the tranquillity of the place.
Our boys (5 and 7) were of course thrilled by the garden and the pool!
We made a lot of excursions in the surrounding area, and we especially recommend:
Fosdinovo, with the Malaspina Castle (try to make it for the tour – the guide also speaks French) and its magnificent views of the mountains and the coast (very nice restaurant /trattoria opposite the entrance of the castle)
Lucca and Pisa are not far away, easy to find a parking space.
Cinque Terre: We drove to La Spezia, parked underground at the station, and took the train and then the boat. It might be easier to take the train directly from Pontremoli to Monterosso.
Lerici: beautiful and quiet, very nice and clean beaches, easy parking
The village of Pracchiola is worth a visit too – take the time to stroll up through the narrow streets if you go to the waterfall.
Bagnone and Malgrate are real pearls and very close by.
Portovenere is a nice day trip, remember to bring your swimming suits
Go to the hills to appreciate the villages of Caprio and Rocca Sigillina and the views.
The boys appreciated going through the marble quarries and tunnels and collect a few pieces of their own.
One of our best holidays ever!

We loved this house

  • Submitted: Sep 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
We enjoyed the apartment, the views, the village and the swimming-pool. It’s a splendid place!
Try the restaurant I Fondi in Bagnone, by the river, with the lovely view from the balcony. If you go to 5 Terre – go to La Spezia by train. Trains are frequent. Vernazza is pretty. If you are interested in history, the Stele Museum in Pontremoli is brilliant. For walks drive up to Rocca Sigillina (up the hill past Caprio) and take the stony road up to the plateau where they keep cattle. The views are stunning. There are lots of pleasant walking from the house!

Enchanting Casatorre!

  • Submitted: Sep 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
A fantastic holiday in beautiful surroundings! Thank you for a wonderful rest at La Casatorre. We arrived exausted and are leaving refreshed. The house is delightful, the swimming-pool is brilliant and Tuscany is enchanting. We recommend Sarzana and Lucca for day trips, but just enjoy the garden and the pool for all its worth!

From Wales to Ponticello!

  • Submitted: Sep 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Thank you so much for a fantastic stay. We have thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of Ponticello and the surrounding beauty of the countryside.
Highly recommended:
Le Cinque Terre - take the train from La Spezia or even Pontremoli. very busy in July, but stunning.
Pisa - for the tower - we went for the evening, only 1 hours drive, quite, easy to park at the first main car park and walk in.
Sarzana - nice medieval town. 30 mins by car, lots of nice shops, gift shops and places to eat.
Lerici - again we went for the evening - 35 mins by car. Free, clean beach. Lovely harbour and shops - very pretty!
Walk up the mountains here! stunning views
Bagnone - pretty village, grat resaturant La Vecchia Posta.
Fab time, fab weather, fab place!

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.
