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.

A fantastic place

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:
- 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 hour drive quiet, easy to park at the first car park and walk in.
- Sarzana, nice medieval town, 30 min. by car, lots of nice shops and place to eat.
- Lerici, we went for the evening. 35 min. by car. Free clean beach, lovely harbour, very pretty shops.
-Walk up the mountains here, stunning views!
- Bagnone, pretty village, great restaurants
Fabulous time, fabulous weather, fabulous place!

La Casatorre is a lovely and fantastic place. We have had a very nice vacation here, and we enjoyed the pool a lot ! We hope we’ll be back in the future, at least for a week!

We had a very nice week in the wonderful village of Ponticello. We didn’t imagine that there were so may castles in Tuscany. The house was superb, and our daughters adored the swimming-pool.
We visited Pisa, Lucca, La Spezia and Firenze, Pontremoli, of course, and Lerici. Pisa and Lucca are near, so you can visit both towns in one day. There are so many things to see and places to visit!

This place is really unique! Nice house, clean and comfortable apartment, quiet garden and lovely pool. Parking is close to the house. The village of Ponticello is all pedestrian and very genuine, not spoilt by tourism. The house has a great view of the mountain. Shopping and sightseeing are easy. The local cuisine is superb: try the many restaurants in Pontremoli (Bussè, Il Caveau del Teatro, La Bietola). We really had a great holiday!

Séjour très agréable dans une propriété soignée. Le cadre est magnifique, avec la vue sur le petit village et les montagnes. Un lieu plein de charme que nous ne manquerons pas de recommander. Nous repartons avec souvenirs de la La Casa Torre, de son environnent et de sa région la Toscane et les Cinque Terre.
Un grand merci aux propriétaires et à Annabelle pour l’entretien de ce lieu et un agréable séjour aux prochains vacanciers.

A nice stay in a beautiful property. The environment is really attractive, between the mountains and the small hamlet. A charming place that we would recommend without any problem. We leave with really good memories. We enjoyed our stay at La Casa Torre, in Tuscany and in the Cinque Terre.
Many thanks to the owners and to Annabelle for the welcoming in this place. We hope that next tourists will enjoy as we did.
