Full Description

Connected to main services and with central heating.

The lower level of the house is the same size but requires restoration and would offer a 2 - 3 bedroom independent unit.

There is also a garden with olive trees.

Ample free parking is just round the corner in the nearby village square.

WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT THIS PROPERTY

The property has high ceilings and large windows making it feel spacious and light. The views are spectacular to the mountains and the garden is a great bonus to have for eating out and summer barbecues, and being in a village, there is the convenience of a great café with sunny terrace to sip your morning coffee or the restaurant does great lunches and evening meals of local specialities such as wild boar stew and homemade gnocchi with wild mushroom sauce.

THINGS TO BEAR IN MIND

The first floor apartment is to restore but one could happily live in first apartment immediately while restoring the apartment below. This could be a great rental opportunity where one apartment could be used as a holiday home whilst renting the second apartment or alternatively the property could easily be converted into one family home.

WHERE IS IT

The property is located in one of the most picturesque villages in Lunigiana.
Traders in medieval times would stop at the village for the night on their way over the mountains from the Parma region to buy sea salt and still retains the picturesque stone buildings and labirinth of cobbled lane and interlinking archways. A few minutes drive from Licciana Nardi a town in the Taverone valley with 13th century pedestrian street flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. The castle is linked to the baroque church by a covered bridge so that the nobles had direct access to prayer and dealings with the local priest. There are also a bank, schools, restaurants and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and offers a good selection of amenities.

Lunigiana (pronounced Loonee-janna) is a magical part of Tuscany starting with its name the ‘Land of the Moon’. The hills that encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are extremely inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage but for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hours’ drive away.

Lunigiana is special and has been likened to a magical kingdom. It is not only the breath-taking scenery with its abundance of medieval castles but you simply feel a huge sense of wellbeing radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind friendly locals and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community amongst people here that is rarely seen in modern day life.

The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing in the summer while the snow clad mountains offer skiing in the local resorts during the winter months and are each a short drive away. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all within an hours’ drive.
