Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

Villa Luna dell'Antico Uliveto stands in an ancient olive grove at the highest point in the hill village of Magliano di Fivizzano in Lunigiana, northern Tuscany. It offers breathtaking views of the Apuan Alps, and down a long valley with many villages nestled among the vineyards and olive trees.
Villa Luna is a classic retreat, combining the comforts of modern living with the charm of the past. It has been sympathetically built in accordance with local custom to reflect the character of the village. The interior includes terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and chestnut woodwork.
If you want to stay in touch with home or write that book, there is wireless internet access. There is satellite TV (with HDMI connection for your laptop), a DVD player and a CD player/radio with iPod dock for your own music in the cosy living room. An extensive DVD library, games, jigsaws and books are also provided. The terrace has stunning views, where you can enjoy "sundowners" or a meal al fresco.
The 3 bedrooms (1 twin, 2 double) have beamed ceilings, and each has its own bathroom with WC, washbasin, shower and hairdryer. The downstairs WC also doubles as a shower room. The double bedrooms have their own balconies where you can sit with your early-morning tea, listen to the birdsong and admire the view down the valley.
The mature garden contains a 9m x 5m x 1.5m swimming pool with complete privacy, the same glorious view as from the house, sun loungers, sunshades and a solar shower.
Linen and towels (but not beach towels) are provided, and a cot and high chair are available for small children.
Lunigiana is the most northerly part of Tuscany, bordering on Liguria and Emilia Romagna, with Pisa and Genova Airports approximately 1 hour 15 minutes away from the property. Fivizzano, Licciana Nardi, Pontremoli and Bagnone are local towns with imposing mediaeval churches and hilltop castles, and at Pontremoli can be seen stele statues dating from 2000BC, suggesting the mystery of an ancient civilization.
The nearby Ligurian coast is very different, with the bustling streets of cosmopolitan La Spezia, and the Gulf of the Poets (i.e. Shelley, Byron) encompassing beautiful Lerici, San Terenzo and Portovenere, with UNESCO World Heritage site the Cinque Terre reachable by boat from Lerici. Not far away is Carrara, world-famous for its marble. Cultural centres such as Florence and Lucca can be reached by car in about an hour and 30 minutes, and Pisa in slightly less.
