Set in a prime position in the open countryside above Licciana Nardi, yet close to a small village, and within easy distance of Aulla, this is a perfect location. Licciana Nardi is a town in the Taverone valley with a 13th-century pedestrian street flanked by local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th-century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. There are also a bank, schools, restaurants, and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and offers a good selection of amenities.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. 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 hour's drive away. There is breathtaking scenery and you simply feel a huge sense of well-being radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind and friendly locals, and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community among people that is rarely seen in modern day life. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre (UNESCO World Heritage site) are ideal for swimming and sailing. The area is crisscrossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma, and Genova are each around an hour away.
