Close to sea (30') and placed at the beginning of the world-famous marble Alps (Alpi Apuane), in the heart of Lunigiana region, this villa was build in 1757 by a family sent from Florence to supervise the area (the descendents run a local pharmacy now). Part of the external walls and patio belong to the Gassano castle, built in 13th Century. You will dine and relax under this large patio as it belongs to the villa, with a magnificent view upon the valley. The villa has 4 bedrooms, an antique typical Tuscan kitchen, 2 bathrooms (one equipped with a 19th century bathtube and fireplace), a very large living room with fireplace. Other rooms are present as well as a wine cellar. The villa has 3 gardens and a parking lot right in front. It can also be rented partially as the villa has several entrances and can be partitioned accordingly to your needs. The best sea is about 35' drive away near the wonderful and busy village of Lerici. The famous Cinque Terre are also close. Apuane Alps are in the opposite direction, 20' drive. The villa is ideal for relaxing and spending time both at sea and trekking or riding horses on the alps, being just a short drive away from anything you should visit there. In the village there are 2 groceries, 1 bakery and 1 coffee shop. Several (outstanding) restaurants are within few minutes and are very affordable. One of the closest beach is private and has very shallow waters, ideal for childrens' safety. Ask us for anything.
