Full Description

Two bedroom apartment to restore

First floor apartment with terrace to restore in a beautiful Ligurian village above 'Il Golfo dei Poeti' (the Gulf of the Poets) with views to the sea.

Character apartment to restore set among the narrow cobbled streets of a beautiful hilltop village overlooking the sea.

The apartment is set on the first floor and is one of three apartments in the building. The property is entered into the living room, with original 'graniglia' paved flooring. Three steps up lead a bathroom with shower. Another couple of steps up is the kitchen with veranda, where it could be possible to make a good balcony.

There are two bedrooms with a common balcony.

There is a 'cantina' (with water, light and outside space). There is also a vegetable garden ('orto') of 50 sqm close to the property, included in the sale.

Services are at the property but are not currently connected. The apartment is sold freehold.

We work with a sister company, with a resident Geometry and team of builders who are ready to collaborate on the design and build of this project. This team have carried out a number of excellent restorations in the area.

The village is set in above Sarzana and La Spezia. It is close to the market town of Sarzana, a vibrant medieval market town with large elegant central piazza and cobbled lanes meander through the town which are flanked with coffee shops and antique stores. During the summer months Sarzana opens up for evenings which can be spent wandering the cobbled lanes, with antiques and bric-a-brac, and often hosts festivals from dining in the piazza to concerts to open air events along the lanes.

Both the coastal areas of Versilia and the Gulf of the Poets are 7 km away with good public transport connections. Sarzana also has a station with direct trains to Pisa, Genova, Lucca, Florence, the Cinque Terre.

The Cinque Terre are five picturesque villages strung along the narrow coastline north of the Gulf of the Poets and La Spezia with pretty coves, beaches and are accessed on foot, boat or with the local train that shuttles between the villages. Anyone visiting the Cinque Terre should take a walk along the cliff paths which link one village to the next, stop in one of the bars or restaurants and try the anchovies marinated in olive oil and garlic, served with bread and delicate white wine made from the grapes that grow up the steep terraces above the villages. The Cinque Terre are a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Gulf of the Poets is an enclave with a group of three islands at its tip, fishing villages with exceptional fish restaurants, as well as opportunities for sailing, canoeing, snorkelling or just relaxing on one of the beaches hidden in craggy bays around Fiascherino or Tellaro. The easiest way to get around the gulf is by boat which runs between Lerici, La Spezia and Portovenere or on to The Cinque Terre. The name Gulf of the Poets is from the literary connection as some of the world’s most famous poets including Shelley, Byron and D H Lawrence lived here at some time.

Distances: Sarzana 10 kms, La Spezia 10 kms, beaches 12 kms, Lerici 12 kms, Pisa (airport) 70 kms.
