Detached villa of exceptional quality with a swimming pool in lovely gardens, in an upmarket residential area, within easy walking distance of an excellent restaurant.

The Tuscan stone arches are the immediate striking feature as you approach the house. Into the entrance hall then to the beautiful double aspect living room, with fireplace, which opens onto a covered porch with stone arches. The kitchen is very well equipped with Miele appliances and with space for a table and chairs and doors to the garden. There is a larder, a useful utility room, a large store cupboard and also a downstairs cloakroom (WC). Upstairs there are two immaculate double bedrooms, one with en-suite with bath and shower, and another bathroom with shower and they both open onto a lovely terrace.

The villa is presented in immaculate condition throughout.

The garden is beautifully landscaped and maintained and it is a haven of peace and tranquility. The swimming pool is 8m x 4m and it is with a constant depth of 1.4m. The land is 6,300 sqm (around one and a half acres). There is easy car access and allocated private parking.

The pretty village has an excellent restaurant (locandagavarini.it/) just a two minutes away, serving excellent quality traditional Tuscan dishes.

The property is set close to the town of Bagnone a charming medieval town dominated by a castle and a cobbled piazza ideal for watching the local town life go by while sipping a cappuccino in one of the many coffee bars. It is full of cobbled lanes with interlinking archways, restaurants hidden under the stone vaults, shops offering local produce and the constant backdrop of the mountains and sound of the river make this a particularly pretty town in the area.

Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The hills that encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are very inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hour away. 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 within an hours’ drive.
