Casa Paretola is a stunning farmhouse c 1700s nestled on the edge of a medieval hamlet with spectacular views cross the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The perfect setting for a totally relaxing holiday, and yet so close to historical centres such as Lucca, Florence and Pisa.

The house is located 25 minutes from the Italian Riviera coastline. The five cliff top fishing villages of the Cinque Terre are close by, this is a world heritage site with picturesque fishing villages dotted along the coast and makes for a wonderful trip. It is also possible to drive 20 mins to Aulla and take the train (10 mins) to the Cinque Terre (you can purchase all day hop off and hop on tickets).

Lerici (25 mins), Porto Venere and the islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto are another Unesco site in Liguria. Near Portovenere there is La Spezia for shops and to take the ferry to Portofino and Cinque Terre. The sandy beaches of Marinella and Marina di Massa are 30 min away. Many fresh water rock pools, made by the fast flowing water from melting snow are at walking distance.

There is the ancient city of Sarzana, the beaches at Forte di Marmi with the wonderful shops with the best luxury brands of the world, the 'Carrara' marble mountains and the Garfargnana National Park. You can also visit San Gimignano and Siena one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. Along with the magnificent Tuscan countryside and beautiful villages like Volterra, Monteriggioni and Montepulciano, tasting Chianti one of the most appreciated wines in the world, eating typical cold cuts and typical cheeses.

The historical towns of Lucca (40 mins), Pisa (50 mins), Florence (1.5 hrs) and Bologna (1 hr) are just a close drive away.

It is so wonderful to be able to return after a day's sightseeing to the tranquility and relaxation of Casa Paretola, so far removed from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowds and 21st Century living.

Lunigiana is a very pictureque and quite undiscovered part of Tuscany, perfect for total relaxation, hiking, cycling or touring. You will be taken back into the real Tuscan life, a very relaxed tempo of a century ago, calm and unhurried.

The property has one large terrace at the front of the property, and a smaller terrace to the side of the kitchen along with a small garden to the side of the property. It is 8 minutes from Licciana Nardi (local village) and 15 minutes from local swimming pool.

Quite apart from sea-bathing this area offers many opportunities for swimming both in good public swimming pools and in safe river pools. River bathing is popular in some areas particularly around Licciana, Bagnone and Pontremoli (for example at Guinadi). There are swimming pools at Villafranca (Olympic size set in wooded grounds). There is also a smaller pool and tennis courts, a snack bar and pizzeria. Cormezzano, between Aulla and Fivizzano just past the Gassano turn has a pool with water chutes. There are also swimming pools at Lerici (beach) and Equi Terme (sulphur baths).

Within 8 minutes from Casa Paretola you arrive in Licciana Nardi, where there is a shopping centre (Masero di Licciana Nardi), restaurants, bar, bank, chemist and post office.

"Fantastic, rustic farmhouse set in a stunningly beautiful location"

Be prepared to be amazed, this rustic, remote farmhouse is one of the most stunning places I have ever visited. You definitely need a car - the steep hill climb provides you with extensive views that … More
