The Tuscany / Massa Carrara Province region
Tavernelle is located in Lunigiana, the most northern region of Tuscany. Nestled in stunning mountain scenery, it is an easy twenty minute drive from the A15 motorway and the train station at Aulla, and just 40 minutes from the coastal villages of Lerici and the spectacular Cinque Terre. It is accessible from two major airports: 1 hour's drive from Pisa airport and 2 hours from Milan Linate. Tavernelle is a superb base for Tuscan sighteseeing, located 1 hour's drive from Lucca; and 1 hour 30 mins from the renaissance wonders of Florence and Siena. The 3000sq kilometres of surrounding forest provides some of the best trekking in northern Italy, and the ski slopes at Prato Spilla are 25 minutes' drive. For trekkers, the ski lifts provide summer access to the high paths, or sentieri above Lagestrello.
The Licciana Nardi / Tavernelle, Tuscany area
Tavernelle lies on the Tavarone river, in the heart of historic northern Tuscany, set against a backdrop of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine National Park. The village boasts a bar and, two excellent restaurants, a weekend pizzeria, a butcher’s shop/grocery store. The river offers swimming in cold rock pools, sunning and scrambling upstream through the eddies and falls.
Summer weekends bring heightened activity, with the ballo liscio, or ‘slow dance’ held beside the bar attracting all-comers. Al fresco dining reaches a climax during the annual Festa della Trota, usually held on the first weekend in August. The village is transformed into a medieval marketplace, and feasting takes place noon and evening in the village park. Visitors and locals alike throng to this annual festa to sample the best local fare and wine, trout, lamb, pastas and tortas.

Great location, lovely apartment. A bit of challenge the spiral staircase with suitcases a bit quirky. Outside space fab with brilliant views, had planned to have a bbq but got rained off at last minute but still managed as the little oven worked wonderfully. A real bonus having wifi as was able to research where to go each day.
Bar/restaurant in village (the only one) do lovely meals especially pizza night on a saturday and sunday. Wine really cheap!!
Only one slight problem was the mattress seem to slope into the middle.
I am delighted that your stay at Casa Giulia was so enjoyable. Also really pleased that you liked the terrace so much. Pity that it rained as a BBQ on the terrace is quite unforgettable! I appreciate your comment on the mattress. We ourselves slept there at the end of the season and have since changed it. Many thanks.
