Occupied by our son before he abandon the nest, it is a two-room apartment on two floors, placed in front of the pool. On the ground floor a living area with a small kitchenette and two sofa futon convertible into beds and a small bathroom with shower on the ground, toilet and sink, upstairs reached by a semichiocciola a large double bedroom with four beds

The apartment is perfect for a family or a group of friends, it is simple, but cozy and comfortable, it can sleep 4/6 people.

In the heart of Lunigiana, a few minutes from Sarzana and Fosdinovo, the old mill of 'the peasants' ruined and covered with brambles, is now, thanks to the madness of Cristina and Gianni, a medieval fairy tale, where the eyes are lost in a thousand shades of green, the ears are suffering from too much silence, the scents of the seasons surround us, the gurgling of the creek beds.

In addition to the rent of the apartment, the borgo offers local cuisine , vegetarian and vegan menu, opportunity to participate in different activities.

The apartment is part of an ancient farmer house. The villa is an old mill whose origin is lost in time, in between two small mountain rivers that provided the mill with energy, with an old medieval, or maybe roman, bridge. We have lived here since 1977, moved from a city big enough to stress us out. Little by little over the years, we brought back to our new life the old structures, the gardens, the olives, the stone walls, etc… through a work that has no end... The farm is always organic and we produce olive oil, honey, vegetables and fruit, and in our kitchen, we prepare conserves, jams, marmalades, olives and peppers in oil, we grow herbs, and bottle our own limoncello and other liquors. We do not produce wine, but we but it from a farm close by, and it is organic and biodynamic; the same with local cheese and fresh milk from local cows. During the year, there are always a few people from all over the world to give us a hand, through WWOOF (WorldWide Opportunities on Organic Farming). a The villa is an old mill whose origin is lost in time, in between two small mountain rivers that provided the mill with energy, with an old medieval, or maybe roman, bridge.

The Tuscany region

Between Liguria and Tuscany, sea and mountains, Lunigiana is an area of rare beauty and ancient civilisation. You can lose yourself among its narrow mountain lanes which suddenly open out over the sea, or you can use it as a base for visiting Lerici and Cinque Terre, Viareggio and the Forte dei Marmi, the caves of Carrara, the Apuan Alps and many others besides.

Pisa and Lucca are close by, Florence is a little further afield but easily reachable.

Fosdinovo

We are in the middle of the countryside among woods and olive groves. The sea is about 10km away in both directions, either towards Liguria (Lerici and Cinque Terre) or Tuscany.

Geese splash around in our stream and donkeys graze our fields, but civilisation is a stone's throw away and the sea is very near.

You can find us in a small valley named Colomba, called a long time ago “Bumpkin”, but the residents preferred to change the name, who knows why, maybe because “Bumpkin” meant “peasant”…

The villa is accessible by an ancient road that goes through the town of Giucano and Carignano (beautiful road), but that, many years ago and again, just after the second World War, served as a commercial road from Parma and the region Emilia, traversing the Appenines.

Every year, there is a hike with donkeys that goes from Emilia retracing the ancient road ( www.aria-aperta.it ).

For hikers, you can find us near Via Francigena and the trekking circuit of Lunigiana, on the partisan paths (there is a fantastic multimedia museum of the resistance in Italy, located in Canepari). There is a path maintained by the C.A.I (Italian Alpinist Club) for mountain-bike and hiking aficionados. For those who arrive in car, we are 7 km from Sarzana, on a road with many curves, but if you arrive once, it is very simple, 10 minutes.

On Google maps, zoom in with the + sign and you can see the area of the agriturismo.

5/5

"Una vacanza deliziosa e tranquilla in un appartamento accogliente e gradevole"

Abbiamo passato una settimana con alcuni amici in questo bell'agriturismo, tra toscana e Liguria. L'appartamento è ben organizzato, benché piccolo, siamo stati benissimo in 5.
La cucina è un po' piccola, ma il ristorante del borgo offre pasti squisiti a prezzi davvero competitivi. Non vale la pena di spadellare
Un'esperienza davvero rilassante, con il mare a poca distanza, Sarzana, Lerici, le cinque terre facilmente raggiungibili. necessaria la macchina
