Overview

Pontremoli House Rental Photos and Description

Three independent units with separate outside eating areas

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 with saltwater purification system and solar heated outdoor shower. 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

Had some of our best holidays here. Beautiful scenery. Quaint medieval hamlet. The grounds of La Casatorre are very spacious and lovely to relax by the pool. If you want a non touristy, quiet, relaxing away from civilisation holiday - it's perfect. Local food is great too. But if you want to sight see there are lots of places within an hours drive.

Un formidable séjour

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons suivi les conseils de nos amis et nous avons passé un formidable séjour. Même s'il y avait une chaleur étonnante -30°- les nuits étaient fraîches.
Je confirme la qualité du lieu, qui est proche de visites très jolies et intéressantes:
-promenades le long des torrents de la montagne au cœur de la forêt des châtaigniers.
-la plage dans le cadre enchanteur de Lerici
-les villages pittoresques des Cinque Terre (Corniglia)
-l’élégante ville de Parme avec un centre historique qui nous plonge dans le Moyen Age
...et le retour quotidien à Casa Torre, sa situation de rêve au pied des Apennins sa qualité de vie, son authenticité

A fabulous place

  • 5 of 5
We have had a fabulous week at Casa Torre. The apartment Orsaro is beautifully decorated and the pool and grounds are also well kept. We have been very comfortable despite the temperatures of 30° C or more for the majority of time!
The area of Lunigiana, even if you are very familiar with Italy, is a real discovery. Small villages and towns, country walks and mountain paths are tourist free and stunningly beautiful.
The tourist office in Pontremoli (5 minutes away) has many ideas for days out, as do the leaflets in the apartment.
We found a leaflet about waterfalls, which took us to an incredible walk starting at Pracchiola, way up in the mountains. Fantastic!
It takes less than 30 min. to reach the coast from here; Lerici was great for a day out with a clean free beach and plenty of restaurants.
The local cuisine is very distinctive (chestnut pasta, huge pancakes, loads of mushrooms…) with plenty of choice for shopping and eating out. Best thing; focaccia!
Have a fabulous stay!

excellent!

  • 5 of 5
La Casatorre is the perfect place for couples or families with children who want to spend a quiet and relaxing holiday off the tourist track. The accommodation was bright and clean and at walking distance from the small hamlet of Ponticello. The housekeeper Annabel, who lives on the spot was extremely helpful with instructions and suggestions. The flat had everything we needed We enjoyed the area so much and we would definitely recommend this property to friends!

A lovely spot

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany and enjoyed everything about the house. The hamlet was beautiful and of course the children loved the pool.
Everything was great in the house, there was nothing missing for cooking or anything and it was excellent having Annabel next door to answer any questions.
We will certainly be recommending it to friends and perhaps return ourselves someday.

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.
