|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Close to sea (30') and placed at the beginning of the world-famous marble Alps (Alpi Apuane), in the heart of Lunigiana region, this villa was build in 1757 by a family sent from Florence to supervise the area (the descendents run a local pharmacy now). Part of the external walls and patio belong to the Gassano castle, built in 13th Century. You will dine and relax under this large patio as it belongs to the villa, with a magnificent view upon the valley. The villa has 4 bedrooms, an antique typical Tuscan kitchen, 2 bathrooms (one equipped with a 19th century bathtube and fireplace), a very large living room with fireplace. Other rooms are present as well as a wine cellar. The villa has 3 gardens and a parking lot right in front. It can also be rented partially as the villa has several entrances and can be partitioned accordingly to your needs. The best sea is about 35' drive away near the wonderful and busy village of Lerici. The famous Cinque Terre are also close. Apuane Alps are in the opposite direction, 20' drive. The villa is ideal for relaxing and spending time both at sea and trekking or riding horses on the alps, being just a short drive away from anything you should visit there. In the village there are 2 groceries, 1 bakery and 1 coffee shops. Several (outstanding) restaurants are within few minutes and are very affordable (you'll love them. We deeply love food and wine and we'll provide all the advice with great pleasure!). Everyone is welcome, also your pets. If you have small children, there are some swimming pools with playground 1/2 miles away, but you might prefer the beach. One of the closest beach is private and has very shallow waters, ideal for childrens' safety. Ask us for anything you expect from your holidays and we will help you in understanding if this location will fit (hopefully go beyond) your expectations or we will gladly advice for alternatives.
The house was above all our expectations. It has a strong historical charachter, country spirit but also very elegant and aristocratic. It's like living in a castle and the patio is a paradise in the evenings, with the panoramic view on the whole valley. We also enjoyed very much the surroundings, the "cinque terre", Lerici and all little villages where time seemed to have stopped. Wanna come back again, already miss it!
