Il Castelletto is set on a hill at the foot of the Apuane Alps amongst olive groves, chestnut and oak forest. Everywhere you look you will be captivated by the splendid views that take in the entire valley below, leading to the shores of the near by Mediterranian sea and continuing to the Gulf of Portovenere.

Originally Il Castelletto was defensive stone tower built around 1400 to defend the nearby medieval Malaspina castle. Today it has been transformed into a beautiful and elegant holiday villa, restructured by the owner with great care and maximum attention to detail.

A harmony of colours pervade the interiors with walls plastered in traditional Tuscan pinks and yellows and the brilliant green and white of the local Carrara marble.

Many walls have been left bare to expose the ancient rough hewn stone work which combine with traditional terracotta floors, chestnut beam ceilings and a considered selection of old prints and antiques to create a warm and luxurious atmosphere.


Il Castelletto is on four floors:

Each floor is reachable either by internal stair case or by an internal panoramic lift. The villa is entered from a large external patio which is furnished with out door dining facilities and perfect for taking in the stunning panoramas.

On the ground floor entering from this patio you will find a new and functional brilliantly equipped kitchen adjacent to the dining room. Fine Persian carpets and gold leaf mirrors characterize this room which is a cosy place on winter days with the fire alight.

There is also beautiful wine cellar in stone and a powder room on this floor. On the same level but accessed from the exterior are two beautiful bedrooms which face out onto the big terrace. These bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with showers. Also on this level is a splendid sauna room and the Jacuzzi with hot water.

The main entrance on the first floor leads to an elegant living room with a fireplace in white Carrara marble. The comfortable sofas and armchairs are in complete harmony with the coloured walls which are a soft green.In the living room you can also find Satellite television and large windows that take in the magnificent and extensive views.

On the same floor there is a charming double bedroom with an en suite bathroom with a shower. A wooden staircase or the lift leads to the second floor where there are two romantic double bedrooms. Both of them have en suite bathrooms with showers. Going up to the fourth floor you reach the attic where there is a double bedroom with twin beds that can be joined on request and an en suite bathroom with shower.

About this location

The Tuscany region

The varied landscape of this area provides a wealth of different holiday settings for our guests.The dramatically rocky coastline of the Cinque Terre, with its exhilarating clifftop hiking-trails, gives way to sophisticated seaside resorts skirting bays with sandy beaches, washed by the warm turquoise water of the Mediterranean sea.

Ranging from just such superb coastal locations in the Cinque Terre area, to those of the adjoining Tuscan coast and countryside.

Marina di Massa

Massa is located in an extremely lucky geographical position the city being se t in a valley protected by a series of hills and the 2.000 meters high alps which hugh the valley in a sort of bull horns feature. In front of Massa there is the Mediterranean Sea.

Within the distance of a few kilometers we therefore have Sea. Valley, Hills and Mountains, which particular layout originates a very pleasant and unique micro-climate; just think of the orange trees decorating the fur sides of Piazza Aranci, blooming anf fruitfull all over the year.

The otherluck of the geographical particular location of Massa is represented by the vicinity of cities of great cultural, artistic, historical and touristic importance that offer an incredibly vast basket of different interests as you can read here:
