This beautifully restored stone country house with barn is located in Lunigiana, Northern Tuscany, halfway between the Cinque Terre (30min north) and Versilia (30min south). It sits in 4 ha. of private grounds with breathtaking views of the Apuan Alps. The house is 10 min by car from Aulla (on the A15). Distance from Pisa 1 hr (84Km).
This stylish Country house is the perfect getaway to sit back and relax with family and friends. The house (280 sqm) and the first floor of the barn (45sqm) have plenty of space to accommodate three families.
The main house has a beautiful sitting room with sink-in sofas and a wood-stove, a dining room with its original chimney, a library with books in English and Italian for adults and children, two WiFi networks for inside and outside, a fully equipped kitchen with two ovens, dishwasher, kettle, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine and a washing machine. The kitchen and the sitting room open up to a 90 sqm veranda with tables for up to 14 people, a large barbecue, a pizza oven and a large canopy to shade guests.
The barn is west facing and overlooks the Apuan Alps and the pool, has a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a low ceiling mezzanine with a double bed.
The pool is 11x 5.5mt and sits in a fenced garden full of roses, hibiscus, buddleias and boxus bushes. An iron pergola on one side shades guests from the sun. There are sun-loungers for all guests, a hammock, a settee and armchairs. Further out, a gazebo with climbing roses hosts the table tennis. The property has a fruit orchard, two swings and a slide for children.
If the stream at the bottom of the grounds is dry in summer, you can walk to the village of Serricciolo where you can find a small supermarket, a restaurant, two bars and a newsagent. Just 5 minutes away there is a local butcher that sells local cheese and meat.
The view of the Apuan Alps with the amazing Pizzo d'Uccello (1 781mt) is truly unique and sipping wine at dusk while looking at the sunset will re-charge your batteries!
