The Tuscany region

The word Tuscany conjures images of olive groves and vineyards, fine food and wine, romantic farmhouses lined with cypress trees and of course the sun set over Florence. Tourists are drawn every year by these beautiful images they see in glossy magazines, travel guides and through film and television. Many visitors can be forgiven for thinking that Chianti, Siena and Florence encompasses all Tuscany has to offer, however this is not so, and although these areas are enchanting there is much more to discover.

Lunigiana offers a truly unspoilt corner of Tuscany and an inspired destination for the Italian traveller. The most Northern tip which borders the colourful Gulf of the Poets. The nearby Versilia coast overflows with sea side charm and is within easy reach the impressive city of Lucca, rich with Italian architecture and culture. In order to really understand Tuscany it is essential to experience its many contrasts and only then will you discover its true spirit.

Lunigiana is an area rich in history and tradition and set amidst magnificent scenery. The generous hospitality and relaxed pace to life make this a perfect destination for those wishing to escape the rush of modern life. The nearby Gulf of the Poets has attracted many writers, artists and film makers over the years. The quiet cosmopolitan coastline still retains its authenticity and charm. Excellent transport links provide easy accessibility to many of the centres of both Tuscany and Liguria.

If you have a passion for Italy and a desire to explore the less beaten tracks, then Lunigiana will not fail to impress. The only way to appreciate all that the region has to offer is to see it with your own eyes. We are sure that after your visit this will be a place you find difficult to forget.

Licciana Nardi

Icciana Nardi In this region you can admire castles, parish churches, tower houses, hamlets and fortified control walls of the Malaspina family, all dating back to the same period. The old street is rich in decorated portals, picturesque facades decorated with window boxes overflowing with colour. An 11th Century fortified town with much of the ancient town wall still visible and narrow passageways running through immensely thick walls in to the village.

In the Piazza del Municipo the imposing 16th Century castle dominates the square and is joined to the graceful baroque church by a small bridge spanning the entrance to the village. An autumn festival noteworthy of a mention is the chestnut fair held during October. The main street is decorated with chestnut branches, mock medieval shops fronts, old cantinas that open as rustic watering holes and the main piazzas feature large open fires for roasting this important ingredient. The local residents dress up in costume for the event to enhance the atmosphere. You may also see the odd donkey strolling through the village.

Towering over Licciana Nardi is Bastia, a good base for walking, with high meadows and wonderful views out to the Ligurian coast. Bastia is built around the castle which is now privately owned. Monti is another village near Licciana Nardi, again a fortified village with a charming castle. The castle has been well restored and today is used as a summer residence by a surviving member of the Malaspina family. Below the old village, the new part of the town is developing and although not particularly historic, offers a good selection of local amenities.

The Comune of Licciana Nardi encompasses many medieval hillside hamlets, protected as historic centres and most of which are very much alive today. Tavernelle from the road may seem quite bland on the surface however it is necessary to stop and walk into the old centre to understand the charm of this settlement. Once an important trade route leading from Parma, Tavernelle was a popular stopping point, bustling with Locande and guest houses. Taponecco and Varano are picturesque examples of ’borgo’ villages with narrow cobbled lanes and stone houses connected by arches and passageways.

Villagers are very welcoming of new faces and go about their daily routine as if nothing has changed for centuries. Mostly these are farming communities however in recent years they have attracted buyers from Milan and other parts of Europe looking for a unique and unspoilt place to spend their holidays. Many houses have been restored to strict regulations to preserve the heritage of these villages.

"Welcoming, luxurious and stunning!"

Just returned from a week at La Loggia and if you are looking for luxury self-catering accommodation in Tuscany, this is it. A beautifully restored house with simply stunning interiors, pool and surroundings. Our every comfort was catered for and beautiful attention to detail throughout the whole house. Peaceful, rural setting and a car is a must. Close to village with lots of little restaurants within easy reach if you follow the guide provided. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the beautiful pool and surrounding area although you could also spend a week simply admiring all the rooms in the house! Whilst everything was beautiful, a special mention needs to go to the Italian lace pillowcases in the master bedroom, if you appreciate that finer detail! Will definitely return to this beautiful house.
