Bocca di Magra is a nice village located where Magra river flows into the sea. A wonderful panorama of the Apuane alps can be admired from your personal terrace. The wellknown "Cinque terre" are a few km away.

The panoramas you can enjoy from this aparment take your breath away and present you with superb sunsets: with a view stretching from the Gulf of Poets and its islands, to the Apuan Alps with the white stripes of the marble quarries, to the Tuscany coast, to the island of Gorgona and as far as Corsica on a clear day. A unique spot, offering the last bays of Liguria and the first beaches of Tuscany.

The wonderful village of Montemarcello is few minutes drive away: a splendid place with ancient origins, recently voted among the most beautiful places in Italy, with its typical narrow little streets and well-preserved houses painted a typically ligurian pastel colour, and which has in recent years has become the destination for a refined and intellectual kind of tourism.

Coming down from Montemarcello towards Bocca di Magra, another attractive village with roman origins and a small, well-equipped port, you come across a fork leading to Punta Bianca at the southernmost tip of the promontory: it's a rocky point of light limestone that dives into a deep, clean sea surrounded by pine trees and mediterranean scrub.

Just before the little path that goes down, not too steeply, to the rocks at Punta Bianca (15 minutes walk), lies this complex of apartments designed by the famous architect Gio' Ponti and built in the 70s.

Each apartment in the complex, leaning against the hill, has independent entrance, a splendid view of the sea, a parking space in the garage and can use the condominium swimming-pool (june-sep).

The apartment we are offering is reached via some flights of steps, leading through the various blocks of buildings, immersed in the mediterranean scrub. It's snug and comfortable, with the colours of the sea and decorated with colourful tiles; all of the rooms, apart from a kitchen and the bathrooms, have windows onto the large furnished terrace, divided into two parts that are linked to each other overlooking the open sea, the Apuan Alps and the tuscan coast. The apartment is divided into a bigger unit with 2 bedrooms and attached studio with a very comfortable sofabed.

From Puntabianca you can easily get to all of the essential sights in Liguria, such as Lerici, Portovenere and Le Cinque Terre, considered a paradise for hikers (although all of the area here is part of the nature park Parco Naturale di Montemarcello-Magra, with several walker's paths), and the famous beaches in Versilia.

From the little harbour at Bocca di Magra there are small ferries that can take you to the hidden bays in the area, as well as to Punta Corvo, Lerici, Portovenere and Le Cinque Terre.

The North West Italy region

Since Roman times the Magra River was a navigational course that went from the hinterland to the sea. This estuary is located near the beautiful Luni Port and it was a famous seaside resort for aristocratic families during the first years after Christ. Ruins of a 1st century A.D. Roman Villa were found in the centre of the resort and it has been organized in various terraces along the sea.

The breathtaking view of the fishing and modern seaside resort that is scattered among the beauty of nature offers enjoyable paths among small shores, estuaries, and beautiful streets where you can enjoy romantic walks.
