Situated between the sea and at the feet of the Apuan Alps (hikers paradise) and close to the Versilian beaches and the mondaine Forte dei Marmi, immersed in pure nature but not far from the Italian buzz, restaurants and culture. Ideal for people who appreciate the values of pure nature, silence and authentic living in a tastefully furnished home filled with art, while being close to touristic attraction like the international artists town Pietrasanta, with its restaurants and galleries, close to Pisa airport, Lucca, Florence, La Spezia, and the famous 5 Terre.
You need a car to get to Casa Rossa which is nestled in a chestnut forest at the feet of the Apuan Alps, and you need to drive up a small curvy road (be aware, because not everybody likes that). Casa Rossa is a gorgeous romantic house, in the middle of silent and pure nature (though in the valley is a quarry and you can hear the working activity form time to time) surrounded by chestnut trees and the famous marble mountains, in the middle of a garden with olive and fig trees The house is a 200 year old traditional rustic stone house, renovated and decorated with taste and artistic flair.
On the upper floor you have one spacious double bedrooms with an ensuite bathroom, and an open library. Downstairs you have a well equipped open kitchen with a fireplace as well as the living room with a couch (can sleep two persons) facing the veranda and an annexe with an extra toilet/shower and washing machine,.
Facing the marble mountains you have a big covered veranda, with a couch for siesta, where you have your meals (even when it should be raining) or chill in the evening sun.
There is also a big open covered studio in the back, which can be used as a working place for any artistic expression like carving, painting, dancing or practicing your yoga, tai chi ect.
You can drive up to and park at the front door to offload your luggage.
The road that leads to the house is a tar road, but quite steep and curvy.
Closed by you have nice Italian neighbours who are very helpful if help is needed.
This place is ideal for a couple who seeks peace and beauty, where they can be either creative or read, hike or swim, and also wants to explore Tuscany. I
