Split level characterful property in N. Tuscany, Italy
The grounds have a breathtaking view down the valley. The pool and grounds are all SW facing so are bathed in glorious sunshine all afternoon.
The property is accessed through the stone courtyard and was converted from its original use as a chestnut drying house. It has a small private garden to the side and access to the pool and grounds of the main house.
It is self-contained with a kitchen and living area downstairs and gallery bedroom with en-suite upstairs.
The area is especially appreciated by nature lovers, cyclists and runners as there are numerous walks and the village connects with the via Francigena. Many of our guests have enjoyed running in the area and the river bathing is fantastic with some amazing caves and gorges to be discovered a short drive away.
The medieval charm of the property and area of Lunigiana (the Tuscan secret only a few know about) extends to the closest town of Pontremoli. The town is approximately 12km away with a number of excellent restaurants, high quality artisan food outlets, supermarkets and a twice weekly market.

About Rebecca Whittaker
I am a qualified nutritionist and health coach with a passion for real food and supporting my clients to make informed choices about nutrition. I have been hosting guests at our beautifully restored property for the last eight years. When in Italy, I love to take advantage of the fresh and nutritious food available cooking up some wonderful dishes. I also enjoy going to the beach, river swimming, experiencing amazing local re-enactment festivals and sailing with friends.
Why Rebecca Whittaker chose Province of Massa and Carrara
My husband and I bought this property to renovate it. The area is tranquil and not too full of people and tourists. It has a sleepy, bucolic charm about it and we love experiencing the seasons through the local, delicious food available.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The air quality is wonderful and the pool catches the sun all afternoon which warms the soul :). We find it relaxing and peaceful with some beautiful areas to explore in nature. It is a relaxed way of life and if you are missing the hustle and bustle there are markets and fiestas nearby that can put you back in touch with day-to-day life or busty towns such as Pisa, Parma, Modena and Genova slightly further afied..

Paradise in Tuscany, amazing views and owners not bad either!
From start to finish the whole experience has been fantastic. The property itself has all you will need and more for a "complete life detox and getaway from it all". Going to Tuscany always takes us back to nature and the important things in life for us, family. The area is outstanding and there is plenty to do. Pontremoli is a beautiful town and well worth a visit even if only to buy your groceries and head up into the mountains to the property. Rebecca and the children, Isabelle (sorry if I spelt it wrong!) and Alex were not only friendly but knowledgeable about the area and Italian life! They also made the most delicious courgette cake, chocolate nibbles and gave us the freshest courgette flowers to cook!
We would not hesitate to go back and if life allows it would be back there now! We will definitely be returning in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends who want to get away from it all to visit here. Rebecca recommended some nearby river swimming and we could not have imagined the treat we were in for! The best day ever! Many thanks Rebecca for putting us on to this gem! One final thing is that if you want to be left completely alone and remain private you can but if you want anything the owners are there.
