Description from owner

Description

Villa Rosa is an 18th century farmhouse which has been restored by Sophie and Luca to a high standard into a beautiful home.

The Villa is situated in the hills of Northern Tuscany, in a region called Lunigiana, a land rich of history, culture and culinary traditions.

It is in a small hamlet called Spicciano in which the 'real Italy' so rarely seen now on the regular tourist trail can be experienced. Surrounded by olive groves, grape vines and apple orchards, it is the Italy people dream about. Spicciano has a population of c.40 people, there are no shops and the only sounds to be heard are of the locals and the cattle coming off the fields. Spicciano is a 5 minute car drive from the large town of Fivizzano, where shops, bars and restaurants can be found.

The stone courtyard (aia) is surrounded by the original house - Villa Rosa, a barn (fienile) in which the animals and hay used to be kept and another outbuilding which is now a games room, with table

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The region of Lunigiana offers a truly unspoilt and quiet corner of Tuscany – an ideal place to relax and get away from the more widely travelled and crowded holiday destinations and an escape from the rush of modern life. It is situated in the most northern tip of Tuscany, defined by the Appennine mountain range to the East (often referred to as the 'back bone' of Italy), the world famous Carrara marble Apuane mountains to the South and the Ligurian Riviera to the West. A unique location with a variety of activities readily on hand – whether you wish to visit the coast, bathe in the local natural baths, go skiing, walk in the countryside, or simply wander around the nearby medieval cities and towns.

Fivizzano

Villa Rosa is set in the small hamlet of Spicciano, inhabited mainly by locals, who are very friendly and still work the land around the little village.
From the Villa there are some pleasant walks through woodland and olive groves.

Fivizzano,the nearest town, is only 5 minutes away by car or 30 minutes on foot.
The town became part of the Republic of Florence in the 15th century thus gaining the Tuscan republic an important foothold in Lunigiana, a key region which Genoa, Lucca, Pisa, Milan and Florence had sought to dominate since the early Middle Ages. It is also known as "The Florence of Lunigiana" because of historical economic, cultural and political links with Florence.

“An AMAZING home away from home!”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2013

I've travelled to Villa Rosa on several occasions experiencing the unique environment in spring, summer and winter. It's a large, spacious and beautifully appointed house that is ideal for families and groups of friends as a base to explore amazing Tuscany and Liguria. The contemporary decor of the house feels like it's straight out of Country Living magazine and has been renovated with a lot of care and attention taken over the details of each en suite room and the large living areas, it clearly also functions as a family home. The result is a place that invites you to relax and immediately feel comfortable and at home. There's a large garden, beautiful large swimming pool, safely fenced off for children, games room and outdoor cooking facilities with both a BBQ and wood-fired pizza oven. I recommend Villa Rosa for family holidays, exploring Tuscany, relaxing or for cosy winter escapes... there's a wood burning stove, and ski slopes a short drive away! The owners provide a luxury welcome hamper and full details of the history of Villa Rosa and all of the things to do in the area. They both speak perfect English and Italian and nothing is too much trouble, they clearly love their home and want guests to feel the same way.
