Magnificent villa with 5/6 bedrooms and with land and swimming pool, set in a very private location in the hills of the Lunigiana area of Tuscany.

The house has been fully refurbished and is offered in immaculate condition throughout. Spacious accommodation with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Beautiful living spaces opening onto wonderful terraces, connected by a feature external staircase, which take in the exceptional view. Wonderful privacy.

Plenty of private parking. A 'strada bianca' (unpaved road) of 1.8 kms. Within easy reach of the beautiful Ligurian coastline and perfectly placed to explore all the treasures of Tuscany.

The coastal areas of Versilia and the Gulf of the Poets are just 20 km away. Sarzana also has a train station with direct trains to Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre. The Gulf of the Poets is a beautiful bay guarded by a group of three islands: Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto. There are exceptional fish restaurants, as well as opportunities for sailing, canoeing, snorkelling or just relaxing on one of the beaches hidden in the 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 and on to The Cinque Terre (UNESCO World Heritage Site). The name Gulf of the Poets is from the literary connection as some of the world’s most famous poets including Shelley, Byron and DH Lawrence who all lived here at some time. Lerici and San Terenzo offer golden sandy beaches with views to the islands and pretty piazzas with cobbled lanes which host some of the best restaurants in the area. Lerici itself is dominated by the castle with the old village of coloured houses huddled on the steep hill dropping down to the sea and the marina. The little lanes of Lerici have many colourful shops and restaurants so it is the perfect place of the evening stroll, the 'passeggiata'. The area is beautiful.

Versilia is the stretch of golden sandy coast from the tip of Liguria to Viareggio. Viareggio is the southernmost Italian Riviera resort on Italy's Mediterranean coast and the largest beach town in Tuscany. Liberty style buildings housing fashionable shops, cafes, and seafood restaurants line its promenade. Viareggio is famous for the yearly Carnevale di Viareggio dating back to 1873 with large papier-mâché floats which parade along the promenade known as "Passeggiata a mare". The carnival takes place in the in the weeks preceding lent. In nearby Forte dei Marmi you can shop with the rich and famous in the up market designer shops in the avenues around the pretty central piazza with bars serving refreshing campari.
