Full Description

Beautiful apartment set on a prestigious piazza in the centre of Sarzana. Possibility of a third bedroom and roof terrace.

Wonderful top (second) floor apartment (154 sqm) which is full of character and is set on a beautiful central piazza in Sarzana. There is a well-kept communal entrance and stairwell to the apartment front door. The property is entered into a spacious entrance hall which opens onto a beautiful sitting/dining room with large, high windows which flood the room with light. The kitchen is spacious, with a table and chairs and has windows over the pretty internal courtyard. There are two large double bedrooms and a large bathroom.

Upstairs is a large loft space (50sqm) which has potential to be converted to additional accommodation and could offer the possibility of a roof terrace.

Sarzana is a vibrant medieval market town with large elegant central piazzas and cobbled lanes meandering through the town flanked with coffee shops and antique stores. During the summer months Sarzana often hosts festivals from dining in the piazza to concerts to open air events along the lanes. There is a wonderful atmosphere on summer evenings when there are many street antique markets throughout the town, often with musicians playing and the castle is open.

Sarzana also has a station, just 2 mins from this apartment, with direct trains to Pisa, Florence, the Cinque Terre and Genova (Genoa).

Both the coastal areas of Versilia and the Gulf of the Poets are 7 km away with good public transport connections. The golden sandy beaches look out to the islands, to Portovenere and the castles of San Terenzo and Lerici. The Gulf of The Poets, a pearl of the Mediterranean, with character villages, craggy coves and sandy beaches, is enchanting. It has been home to many poets and writers over the years including Shelley, Byron and DH Lawrence. There is great sailing around this coastline, with the Cinque Terre, Elba and the Tuscan islands all within easy reach. Both Lerici and San Terenzo are dominated by the castle with the old villages of pastel coloured buildings huddled on the steep hills dropping down to the sea and the marina. There are many colourful shops and restaurants and it is an ideal place to relax and explore. The easiest way to get around the gulf is by boat which run between Lerici, La Spezia, Portovenere and on to The Cinque Terre. These five villages are strung along the terraced cliffs and form a UNESCO World Heritage site which, until recently, could only be reached by boat or by train. 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 which grow up the steep terraces above the villages.

Distances: Sarzana is on the doorstep, Lerici (beaches) 7 km, Cinque Terre 35 kms, Forte dei Marmi 35 km, Viareggio 40 km, Lucca 65 km, Pisa (airport) 65 km, Florence 130 km.
