Outstanding 17th century property, formerly the Bishop's summer residence with breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside, comprising the large main historic building and 2 further outbuildings set in land of meadows, olive groves and woodland.

The property has many original features including original stone staircase, vaulted ceilings, beams and terracotta floors and has been structurally renovated including new roof on all the buildings but requires internal restoration.

The property and outbuildings offer enormous scope for both private and business use.

The main building is a total of 950 meters square gross with outbuildings of 160 and 200 m sq. The property is set in land of 38 hectares.

Between Pontremoli and Bagnone this little commune of Filattiera is set around the hill town dominated by a castle and cobbled piazza. A summer festa held along the lanes offers local food, wine and music.

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 well being radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind friendly locals and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community among 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.
