Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Ortonovo

Historical residence, large garden planted with olive trees.

Ideally located, close to the sea, the Cinque Terre, the Versilia, the Apuan Alps, to the quarries of Carrara, to important historical cities like Sarzana, Lerici, Lucca, Pietrasanta, Pisa.

In 1300 there was an old mill, where they are now located apartments. A source of pure water allowed the movement of heavy millstones and gears used to produce a delicious oil produced with olives which ripened in the sun on the surrounding hills. The Marquis Amati, mill owner and land, he knew it would be a beautiful place to live and began the transformation in housing units, until the cessation of its use for the production of olive oil and the complete transformation into housing units at by the heirs of the Marquis. The restructuring, made with love and respect for the style and the original features, wanted to preserve many of the characteristic features, so that within the structure you can still admire many of the peculiarities of the ancient and authentic decor in 3 apartments with 6 beds each , two of them with connecting door to allow, if required, to accommodate up to 12 people. Outside, 7000 square meters of land surrounding the house, with crops with vines, fruit trees, nuts and kernels can offer a peacefulness and regenerate the spirit in a natural environment full of charm.

Séjour en famille très nombreuse

Notre séjour a été parfait, nous étions nombreux dans la maison mais parfaitement à l'aise!

la terasse permet de prendre les repas dans un cadre magnifique!

Les hotes sont très disponibles pour toutes informations.

Proximité en voiture de la mer, des cinque terre, des carrières de marbre de Carrare, ville de Luca et plein d'autres choses!

Lovely stay at Casale Amati!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at Casale Amati, in the Frantoio Ingoletti part of the building, during the school holidays of October/November. The holiday home has been lovingly restored, with beautiful attention to detail and personal touches, old and new. An added bonus for us, as the sun shone all week, was the garden area. Federica responded attentively to all of our enquiries during our stay. The location was perfect for us, close to several sandy beaches and the picturesque seaside towns/villages of San Terenzo, Lerici and Tellaro and also close to the Tuscan countryside, with the mystical Isola Santa village a stunning drive away and, of course, Lucca. This location would equally suit people wanting to visit Cinque Terre, Pisa and Florence. Thank you for a lovely stay, highly recommended!

Provare per credere.

  • 5 of 5

Posizione strategica che ci permette di passare da un ambiente sereno, armonioso, e pieno di energia positiva; in pochi minuti sulla costa della versilia con tutto quello che può offrire. La struttura è veramente unica, direi che all'arrivo ci fa vivere momenti di stupore. Arredata con ricercato gusto, nei minimi particolari. Ci si sente subito a proprio agio, ampi spazi da condividere, ben attrezzata. Pulizia più che ok. La sig.ra Federica è veramente gentilissima, disponibile. Altrettanto la sig.ra Rina, vicina di casa, che custodisce i clienti con racconti molto entusiasmanti e ricamati. Consigliarlo ad altre persone non è facile.... perchè al ritorno quando si racconta e si descrive il casale, sembra quasi che si stia raccontando una fiaba.....Provare per credere. Fabrizio e gli altri amici dall'Amiata....

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with the Casale Amati Country Home was as we hoped. The location is right at the foot of the mountains and hills, with great walking to a mountain top town with ice cream and architecture. There is a path next to a clear stream just across the street that appears to have fish in a remote pool just up the trail and in the woods. A few minute away by car, there is a winding road with a fantastic view of the Golfo della Spezia where we went swimming on a nice little beach in Poets Bay, Lerici. The garden in the back is set up so you can eat in a little nook next to a narrow channel of running water that powered the old olive press years ago. We are a family of six that had been traveling for nearly four months and found the interior completely unique, welcoming, and more than enough room for all of us. There is a safe private parking spot within 20 feet of the front door. Our hostess was very responsive to any questions and provided great recommendations for the area. This was a perfect finish to a long trip. We recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere that is just a couple of minutes off the busy trail, but within five minutes to everything you need and want in a place to stay. A unique place that I think the kids will remember for a long time.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris. We want to sincerely thank all of you. When a customer goes away satisfied, and he thinks he bring with him the memory of a place ... this aspect is what interests us most of all. This part of Italy is less known, but it represents the best our country. Thanks for all the advice and the time spent together. We hope to see you again one day. Greetings Federica and Enrico
