There is wireless internet access, satellite TV (with HDMI connection for your own laptop, which is essential if you want to watch UK and international channels), a DVD player and a CD player/radio with iPod dock for your own music in the cosy living room. An extensive DVD library, games, jigsaws and books are also provided. The front terrace with awning has stunning views, where you can enjoy "sundowners" or a meal al fresco. The back terrace has views over the Apuan Alps.
The 3 bedrooms (1 twin, 2 double) have beamed ceilings, and each has its own bathroom with WC, washbasin, shower and hairdryer. There is a WC and shower room downstairs. The double bedrooms have their own terraces where you can sit with your early-morning tea, listen to the birdsong and admire the view down the valley.
The garage houses a table football and a toy box for children.
The mature garden contains a 9m x 5m x 1.5m swimming pool with complete privacy, the same glorious view as from the house, sun loungers, sunshades and a solar shower.
Linen and towels (but not beach towels) are provided, and a cot, high chair and child buggy are available for small children.
Lunigiana is the most northerly part of Tuscany, bordering on Liguria and Emilia Romagna, with Pisa and Genova Airports approximately 1 hour 15 minutes away from the property. Fivizzano, Licciana Nardi, Pontremoli and Bagnone are local towns with imposing mediaeval churches and hilltop castles, and at Pontremoli the stele statues dating from 2000BC can be seen, suggesting the mystery of an ancient civilization.
The nearby Ligurian coast is very different, with the bustling streets of cosmopolitan La Spezia, and the Gulf of the Poets (i.e. Shelley, Byron) encompassing beautiful Lerici, San Terenzo and Portovenere, with UNESCO World Heritage site the Cinque Terre reachable by boat from Lerici or train from Aulla Lunigiana. Portofino and Santa Margarita are an hour away by car. Not far away is Carrara, world-famous for its marble. Cultural centres such as Florence and Lucca can be reached by car in about an hour and 30 minutes, and Pisa in slightly less. The spa town of Equi Terme can be reached in about 45 minutes by car or train.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is the classic Italian holiday region, containing such treasures as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Volterra and San Gimigniano, as well as seemingly endless white sandy beaches along its coast.
In July, Lucca holds its annual music festival, with many of the events taking place in the elegant Piazza Naploeone in the old centre of the town.
Local markets in Lunigiana (northern Tuscany) and nearby Liguria include Bagnone on Mondays, Fivizzano on Tuesdays, Pontremoli and Forte dei Marmi on Wednesdays, Sarzana (all day) on Thursdays, Villafranca and La Spezia (all day) on Fridays, Lerici on Saturdays, and Forte dei Marmi again on Sundays.
Antiques markets happen on the first Sunday of the month (April to October) in Forte dei Marmi, and the last Sunday of every month in Filetto and Fivizzano.

Fivizzano

Tuscany is a name which conjures images of olive groves and vineyards, fine food and wine, romantic farmhouses lined with cypress trees, as well as the magical historic cities.
Lunigiana is a quiet corner of Tuscany where traditions are strong, hospitality generous and the pace of life relaxed. Defined by the Appenine mountain range to the east, the world-famous Carrara marble Apuane mountains to the south and the Ligurian Riviera to the west, Lunigiana is characterised by the mysterious outlines of castles and fortified villages, and offers a paradise for walkers through some of the most dramatic landscape in Tuscany.
Fivizzano itself is an aristocratic town in the east of Lunigiana which experienced prosperity under the Medici family of Florence. The town contains elegant Renaissance palaces and the notable Piazza Medicea with its central fountain, and is known for its local food produce and its annual folk music festival.
