About the property

1 bedroom property with pool and garden. Stupendous views. In a village.

La Taverna is a very special property sharing a pool with three other houses. Completely made of stone it seems as though it is carved out of the rock. The kitchen area in the main room has an ancient marble sink, though modern plumbing.

Spacious bedroom with an old Tuscan bed, and set into a corner of the stone wall is a luxurious spa bath. There is also a bathroom with a spacious shower and a walk-in wardrobe.

There is a sofa bed in the living room, ideal for guests, or a child.

The living room opens onto a beautiful walled courtyard with views over the valley to the hills beyond, while the bedroom has its own private garden. A few steps away is the large pool, also with wonderful views over the hills.

La Taverna is set in a friendly village with a shop, bar and restaurant only a couple of minutes walk away.

Down in the valley below tumbles the lovely Taverone river. A short drive takes you into the Appenine mountains, with many lakes to enjoy. The Ligurian coast is about 40 minutes away, where you can take boats out to the Cinque Terre and Portofino. Pisa is only an hour away. It is an ideal area for walking.

Nice apartment but...

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is very well decorated and spacious enough for 3 persons. I also appreciated the books, maps and travel information shared by owner. The outdoors are great, with terrace, sunshades, superb pool shared with 3 other apartments. It is located in a peaceful village, away from it all, in an rural area full of castles and fortified hamlets. But the apartment La Taverna which is located on ground floor, partly built underground (must have been a cellar before), suffered terrible humidity - while outside the weather was really hot, being in the middle of summer. After a few days, our luggage had become wet with all the humidity in the air, it was really disagreeable. So I have mixed feelings about this apartment, I would rather recommand staying at any of the other apartments of the "complex", which are not on ground floor.
