Tuscan Farm House in the Vineyards with spectacular views by the sea
Welcome to our home in the vineyards. It is a typical 'casa colonica,' spacious, large airy rooms with high beamed ceilings and spectacular views of surrounding hills. One can view the seacoast to La Spezia upon walking up the hill. We are at the end of a ribbon of road and it is a safe and secluded refuge from the world, yet centrally located near many cultural centres: Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Cinque Terre. We are located at the borders of the nature reserve of the Alpi Apuani where one can hike and visit many mountain towns and try the local cuisine. Other nearby towns are Pietrasanta, known for its marble carving studios, and bronze foundries, an artistοΏ½s paradise! In the evening, the piazza of Pietrasanta becomes a large living room where one can sit in a cafe and watch people, and children can ride their bikes. There are many outdoor sagras with live music and outdoor dining in all of the small towns nearby. Sandy beaches are 15 minutes away.

Public transportation Because we are in the foothills, one needs a car unless one is very young and ambitious, some have used only a bike!
There is a very good bus line which travels up into the mountains, and everywhere in Italy. The train station is nearby which will connect to any small or large city in Italy and Europe.
