Full Description

Superb, historical stone house with a beautiful courtyard, offering elegant, spacious and flexible accommodation, set in a pretty little Tuscan village in the hills.

The house is just a few steps from the small village car park, down a wide cobbled lane and is approached through a pretty, private courtyard. Up a few steps to a covered loggia area, perfect for eating outside in the hot summer months. Once inside the history of the building becomes apparent with beautiful inlaid marble arches and original flooring, highlighted by the tall windows with stone surrounds which flood the rooms with light. This level is self-contained and has been let very successfully as elegant holiday accommodation. It comprises large living room with fireplace, small kitchen which leads to outside dining area, two beautiful bedrooms with stunning views, and a spacious bathroom. Upstairs is a surprisingly light and spacious accommodation, comprising a good, fitted kitchen with sweet balcony off, very large living room and through a stone arch is an exceptionally large bedroom, with lovely en-suite bathroom. It would be possible to rearrange this space to create one or two additional bedrooms on this level, if required. On the ground floor are three interconnecting cantina (store rooms), through green wrought iron doors, with stone vaulted ceilings. These offer additional potential.

Unusually this house features a lift (elevator) which connects all three floors. This has been particularly significant for rental and has been a very attractive feature to draw clients with particular needs, or for the more elderly relations.

The small town of Pieve San Lorenzo with pizzeria, shops and a station (trains to Lucca) and also a restaurant with a swimming pool is within a short 5 mins drive. Set on the border between Lunigiana and Garfagnana in the Tuscan hills with a nearby lake and trails into the mountains.

Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany with breath-taking scenery and an abundance of medieval castles. The sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind and friendly people offer a perfect mix for a summer retreat or for year-round living.The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all just over an hour away.
