CASETTA ROSA

Sleeps 2 to 4

An independent country house for 4 people with private pool on the border between Liguria and Tuscany, near to the Cinque Terre and the beaches. Bedrooms 2, bathroom 1.

Sleeping four people, this simple farmer's cottage nestles in a privileged position on a wooded hillside directly on the border between eastern Liguria and northern Tuscany. Well-suited to nature-lovers, it is surrounded by luxuriant, unspoilt countryside and consequently enjoys utmost peace and tranquillity, as well as enviable privacy and seclusion. The spectacular Mediterranean sea-views afforded at this elevation encompass all of the Versilia coastline, as far as Livorno (Leghorn).

For the more energetic holidaymaker, the varied sightseeing attractions of the Cinque Terre fishing villages and nature reserve are a mere stone's throw away; while for dedicated sunseekers, the local beach is only ten minutes down the hill from here.

ACCOMMODATION

This low-level property, with its attractive pink exterior walls and light-stone paved surround, extends over ground-floor level only. The style of the interior decor and furnishing is very plain and simple, in keeping with a typical, old, farmer's cottage.

The entrance door leads straight into the central day-room, which combines the following: a living-room area with sofa; a dining area, with a large, old fireplace; and an extensive, integrated kitchen-corner, newly fitted in travertine marble. From this main living space, French doors open out on to the garden.

Adjoining it are two bedrooms, one double and one twin, as well as a bathroom with shower, featuring attractive new fittings in local Carrara marble.

GROUNDS

The property has swimming pool and occupies a superb sun-trap location, which encourages an open-air lifestyle. Easy access from the day-room to the garden via the connecting French doors facilitates comfortable al fresco dining. Well-appointed with table, chairs, sunshade and loungers, the cottage's front lawns invite you to relax at leisure, accompanied by their breathtaking natural backdrop. These outdoor features are undoubtedly the most striking asset of this little property.

LOCATION

La Casetta Rosa is situated within easy reach of the area's principal sights of outstanding natural beauty or historic and artistic interest, such as the following: the medieval town of Sarzana (10mins); the unique Cinque Terre villages and nature reserve; the romantic Gulf of Poets; picturesque Portovenere; sophisticated Portofino; the awe-inspiring Apuan Alps and the world-famous quarries of Carrara (20mins by car), source of all Michelangelo's extraordinary white marble; the lovely sandy beaches of Versilia (30mins by car); and the splendid, simply unmissable Tuscan cities of Pisa (40mins by car), Lucca (30mins by car) and Florence (1 hr).

Many other unspoilt beaches dotted along the nearby coast can readily be reached by car in about 15 mins.

Regular daily ferry services operate from the local ports of Lerici, La Spezia and Marina di Carrara (15 kms away) to the Gulf of Poets; Portovenere; the Cinque Terre; Portofino; as well as to the former maritime republic of Genoa, Liguria's capital city, an ancient, once most powerful port and birthplace of both Christopher Columbus (1451-1504) and the 18th century violin virtuoso, Niccolò Paganini. Its fascinating, state-of-the-art Aquarium now forms one of the city's major modern-day tourist attractions.
