About the property

Near cinque terre, Pisa and coast, great for daytrips, cycling and hiking.

This beautiful, five bedroom, medieval ex-convent house is set in a tiny, historic hamlet. Set at the foothills of the Apennines it is in an ideal location for walking and cycling and yet it is also only 45 minutes from the stunning coastline of the Cinque Terre and Gulf of Poets. All the peace of the countryside, away from the crowds, yet it has easy access to many of Italy's historic cities and attractions for the days you want to explore.

Keeping its old floors and features such as the original arches and beams, Casa Degli Archi (House of the Arches) sleeps 10 plus one extra child.  Set over two levels plus ground floor cellars, the house has a beautiful, sunny courtyard for dining and relaxing in, as well as five bedrooms plus a single child's room/office, 2.5 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living/dining room and a gorgeous, south facing balcony perfect for evening drinks.


Casa Degli Archi is ideal for walkers and cyclists as the house is near the numerous mountain trails in the national parks. The area is also full of wonderful ancient walking trails, many of which have been recently restored. In the mountains the well marked trails have stunning views of the Apuan and Apennine mountains. At the house we provide convenient, secure storage space for your hiking and cycling equipment. The house is also great for day trippers who want a tranquil place to relax after adventures as it also has easy access to the beautiful coastline of the Cinque Terre and Gulf of Poets, Pisa, Lucca, Genova, Parma and Florence.

Casa Degli Archi is only 1¼ hours drive from Pisa airport which connects with cities worldwide. Car hire is easy and is the best way to explore Tuscany, vital for this secluded retreat. The house is a 5 minute drive (or 20 minute walk along a footpath) to Fivizzano which has bars, restaurants and a supermarket.
