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 own laptop, which is essential if you want to watch UK and international channels), 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.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is the classic Italian holiday region, containing such treasures as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Volterra and San Gimigniano, as well as seemingly endless white sandy beaches along its coast.

In July, Lucca holds its annual music festival, with many of the events taking place in the elegant Piazza Naploeone in the old centre of the town.

Local markets in Lunigiana (northern Tuscany) and nearby Liguria include Bagnone on Mondays, Fivizzano on Tuesdays, Pontremoli and Forte dei Marmi on Wednesdays, Sarzana (all day) on Thursdays, Villafranca and La Spezia (all day) on Fridays, Lerici on Saturdays, and Forte dei Marmi again on Sundays.

Antiques markets happen on the first Sunday of the month (April to October) in Forte dei Marmi, and the last Sunday of every month in Filetto and Fivizzano.


Tuscany is a name which conjures images of olive groves and vineyards, fine food and wine, romantic farmhouses lined with cypress trees, as well as the magical historic cities.

Lunigiana is a quiet corner of Tuscany where traditions are strong, hospitality generous and the pace of life relaxed. Defined by the Appenine mountain range to the east, the world-famous Carrara marble Apuane mountains to the south and the Ligurian Riviera to the west, Lunigiana is characterised by the mysterious outlines of castles and fortified villages, and offers a paradise for walkers through some of the most dramatic landscape in Tuscany.

Fivizzano itself is an aristocratic town in the east of Lunigiana which experienced prosperity under the Medici family of Florence. The town contains elegant Renaissance palaces and the notable Piazza Medicea with its central fountain, and is known for its local food produce and its annual folk music festival.

"Lovely villa with beautiful views"

Villa Luna is a beautiful villa in the hills with outstanding views. It is very well equipped with everything you could want and the pool is gorgeous! If you want a relaxing holiday in quiet isolati… More

Thank you for your kind review. We're not sure which way you took in the drive up to the village, but there is at least one double carriageway ("B" road equivalent) route from Aulla to Magliano. In our guest information we advise hiring a vehicle with good ground clearance for the last two hundred metres within the village.
