Space 1,184 sq. ft.

About the property

Historical residence, large garden planted with olive trees.

Casale Amati, La Marchesa is born in an ideal geographical context, near the sea, the Cinque Terre, Versilia, the Apuan Alps, the Carrara quarries, important historic cities such as Sarzana, Lerici, Lucca, Pietrasanta, Pisa, Florence.

In 1300 d. C. there was already a water crusher. A source of pure water allowed the movement of heavy stone mills and gears used for the production of a fragrant oil produced with olives ripened in the sun on the surrounding hills. The Marquis Amati, owner of the oil mill and land, decided to live in this beautiful place and began the expansion of the mill, the complete transformation into housing units by the heirs of the Marquis took place in the second half of the '900. The renovation, made with love and respect for the style and original features, has wanted to preserve many of the unique and fascinating features, so much so that inside the structure you can still admire many of the peculiarities and the ancient authentic furnishings.

Outside, 7000 square meters of land surround Casale Amati, with vine crops, olive trees, fruit trees, walnuts and hazels that offer a quiet privacy and regenerate the spirit in a natural environment full of charm.

wonderful stay in Liguria

  • 4 of 5

travelling through some narrow sreets and then arriving with lots of space for the kids (3) - stayed in La Marchesa. Wifi ofcourse kept them in but Pending tower of Pisa, bicycle riding on Lucca City walls, Fiumaretta beach, boattrip from protovenere to the cinque Terre and even a daytrip to Genova (with the aquarium) kept them also going outside.

nice owners and villagers, with a special remark for Rina across the street who made me feel at home. Panetteria 1 km away made me buy fresh bread every morning, as well as last resort if we forgot to buy thigs at the supermarket.

Wonderful stay !

Perfect place for exploring Liguria

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in Frantoio Ingoletti at Casale Amati. The apartment has been beautifully and very tastefully restored by Federica and Enrico and the property is in a great location for exploring the area around the Cinque Terre, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, north west Tuscany etc. Federica was so kind and welcoming and helped us with any queries we had and went out of her way to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Highly recommended!

Sopra le aspettative.

  • 5 of 5

Il vecchio frantoio è davvero grande e particolare, la parte con gli ingranaggi in castagno e le macine di pietra è molto suggestiva. La casa è elegante e ben attrezzata con molti confort, abbiamo potuto utilizzare anche il nostro account di Netflix!

Siamo stati fortunati, il tempo era soleggiato, così abbiamo potuto fare una bella passeggiata a Lerici e a Tellaro. Se decidete di soggiornare in questo posto vi consiglio una cena alla Bisteccheria di Ortonovo!

Tolles Haus, authentisch, wunderschöner Garten

  • 4 of 5

Sehr sauberes Haus mit 3 Ferienwohnungen, jede für sich genial , super eingerichtet.

In der Beschreibung sind aber alle Bilder von den 3 Wohnungen durcheinander , so dass man nicht weiß welche Wohnung wie aussieht.

Wir wussten bis zur Ankunft auch nicht welche wir bekommen. Für kleinere Kinder bedingt geeignet, da viele Stufen und die Haustüre ist direkt an der Strasse.Viele Stechmücken.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und hat viele Tipps

Wir waren mit unseren drei Kindern in "le macine". Schon beim Betreten des Hauses waren wir verzaubert. Alles ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und man merkt, dass die alte Mühle Federicas Herzblut ist.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und auch unsere Kinder hatten im großen Garten sehr viel Auslauf und haben am Mühlenbach fantastisch gespielt. Kleiner Hinweis: für jüngere Kinder (unsere jüngste ist vier) halten wir das Haus nur bedingt geeignet. Unsere konnten sich frei gewegen, aber kleinere Kinder (bis mind. 2) sollte man noch gut im Auge behalten wegen der alten Mühlenteile, offene Fenster in andere Räume hinein, Mühlenbach...

Federica ist eine warmherzige, sehr engagierte Gastgeberin, die uns jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stand.

Man braucht auf jeden Fall ein Auto für diese Gebend. Wir fanden die Strände jetzt im Sommer sehr voll. Aber es gibt sehr viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten.

Die Mühle als Feriendomizil würden wir auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen, sie ist wunderschön!

Too expensive for what you get

  • 2 of 5

Charming house, but in a very noisy street with a lot of traffic even during night.

Dark, small rooms, doesn't match with the pictures on the website.

The house is very unpractical and inappropriate for children. The sinks are unpractical and dirty ( not a joy for doing the dishes) and the only toilet is in the small shower room which has no mirror above the sink. Poor internet connection and TV not working.

The house is too small for 5 persons.

We had to do the dishes upon arrival because all were dirty. The excursion tips provided by the owner turned out to be pretty expensive versus on site alternatives. All in all we were very disappointed
