Steps lead up to a private terrace with open views from which you enter the property.

The two bedroom property requires restoration. It is full of original features, with hand crafted stone work and original tiled floors. There are columns and vaulted ceilings. It would make a comfortable town property, with a great terrace for outside dining, and lovely view.

Mains water and electricity are connected.

An independent 'geometra' has estimated that a total budget of approx euro 80,000 could secure the property and provide for a good standard restoration.

Good transport links. Train station in town and close to autostrada exit.

You will find the town of Villafranca on the main road between Aulla and Pontremoli. Take time to discover the old centre which is hidden behind the main road where you will find some lovely restaurants and local amenities including banks, supermarkets and a weekly market. A kilometer away you can visit the delightful town of Filetto. Meander your way through the entire town where you will find every street is linked to a stone passage or bridge. Filetto is best enjoyed in the month of August when it opens its doors and hosts its annual medieval festival where all the villagers are dressed up and reenacting a bygone age.

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.
