Welcome to the agriturismo Il Borgo della Colomba!

In the heart of Lunigiana, a few minutes from Sarzana and Fosdinovo, the old mill of the “bumpkins” was destroyed and taken over by blackberries, but changed, thanks to the crazy efforts of Cristina and Gianni, into a fabled village, where your eyes are lost in a million shades of green, your ears suffer from the profound silence, you are enveloped by the smells of the seasons, and the gurgling of the creek cradles you.

A place that appears far from everything, but in reality is only a few minutes from Sarzana (7 km). Ideal for a relaxing vacation, without leaving the village, but also a place of departure for excursions inLunigiana, to the Cinque Terre, to the marble caves in Carrarra, in the Apuane mountains, to Lerici, or to the gulf of the poets.

We can accommodate between 20 and 30 guests altogether.

Size Sleeps up to 4, 1 bedrooms

The Tuscany region

Between Liguria and Tuscany, sea and mountains, Lunigiana is an area of rare beauty and ancient civilisation. You can lose yourself among its narrow mountain lanes which suddenly open out over the sea, or you can use it as a base for visiting Lerici and Cinque Terre, Viareggio and the Forte dei Marmi, the caves of Carrara, the Apuan Alps and many others besides.

Pisa and Lucca are close by, Florence is a little further afield but easily reachable.


We are in the middle of the countryside among woods and olive groves. The sea is about 10km away in both directions, either towards Liguria (Lerici and Cinque Terre) or Tuscany.

Geese splash around in our stream and donkeys graze our fields, but civilisation is a stone's throw away and the sea is very near.

You can find us in a small valley named Colomba, called a long time ago “Bumpkin”, but the residents preferred to change the name, who knows why, maybe because “Bumpkin” meant “peasant”…

The villa is accessible by an ancient road that goes through the town of Giucano and Carignano (beautiful road), but that, many years ago and again, just after the second World War, served as a commercial road from Parma and the region Emilia, traversing the Appenines.

Every year, there is a hike with donkeys that goes from Emilia retracing the ancient road ( ).

For hikers, you can find us near Via Francigena and the trekking circuit of Lunigiana, on the partisan paths (there is a fantastic multimedia museum of the resistance in Italy, located in Canepari). There is a path maintained by the C.A.I (Italian Alpinist Club) for mountain-bike and hiking aficionados. For those who arrive in car, we are 7 km from Sarzana, on a road with many curves, but if you arrive once, it is very simple, 10 minutes.

On Google maps, zoom in with the + sign and you can see the area of the agriturismo.

"Un delizioso piccolo appartamento tra gli olivi"

Abbiamo recentemente passato qualche giorno in questo delizioso appartamento tra gli olivi della Lunigiana, a un passo dal mare. Atmosfera cordiale e accogliente, pulizia perfetta, sistemazione comoda. ristorante straordinario. Ma anche possibilità di cucinarsi i pasti in casa. Il mare a due passi e, con la primavera anticipata, quasi ci siamo fatti il bagno.
