About the property

Historical residence, large garden planted with olive trees.

Casale Amati, La Marchesa is born in an ideal geographical context, near the sea, the Cinque Terre, Versilia, the Apuan Alps, the Carrara quarries, important historic cities such as Sarzana, Lerici, Lucca, Pietrasanta, Pisa, Florence.

In 1300 d. C. there was already a water crusher. A source of pure water allowed the movement of heavy stone mills and gears used for the production of a fragrant oil produced with olives ripened in the sun on the surrounding hills. The Marquis Amati, owner of the oil mill and land, decided to live in this beautiful place and began the expansion of the mill, the complete transformation into housing units by the heirs of the Marquis took place in the second half of the '900. The renovation, made with love and respect for the style and original features, has wanted to preserve many of the unique and fascinating features, so much so that inside the structure you can still admire many of the peculiarities and the ancient authentic furnishings.

Outside, 7000 square meters of land surround Casale Amati, with vine crops, olive trees, fruit trees, walnuts and hazels that offer a quiet privacy and regenerate the spirit in a natural environment full of charm.

wonderful stay in Liguria

  • 4 of 5

travelling through some narrow sreets and then arriving with lots of space for the kids (3) - stayed in La Marchesa. Wifi ofcourse kept them in but Pending tower of Pisa, bicycle riding on Lucca City walls, Fiumaretta beach, boattrip from protovenere to the cinque Terre and even a daytrip to Genova (with the aquarium) kept them also going outside.

nice owners and villagers, with a special remark for Rina across the street who made me feel at home. Panetteria 1 km away made me buy fresh bread every morning, as well as last resort if we forgot to buy thigs at the supermarket.

Wonderful stay !

Perfect place for exploring Liguria

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in Frantoio Ingoletti at Casale Amati. The apartment has been beautifully and very tastefully restored by Federica and Enrico and the property is in a great location for exploring the area around the Cinque Terre, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, north west Tuscany etc. Federica was so kind and welcoming and helped us with any queries we had and went out of her way to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Highly recommended!

"This accomodation was OU...

  • 5 of 5

"This accomodation was OUTSTANDING along with the hospitality of the owners. The apartment was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and decorated and was well placed to see Cinque Terre, Cararra, Pisa and Lucca. The country like setting and history of the house as an old olive oil mill greatly added to the ambiance of our holiday. I couldn't recommend this accomodation highly enough."

Bellissimo casale in zona magnifica

  • 5 of 5

Il nostro soggiorno presso Casale Amati è stato un bellissimo weekend di relax, alla scoperta della Lunigiana.

La posizione del casale, immerso nel verde e con uno spazioso giardino con tavolo e area barbecue, è perfetta per esplorare la zona tra Liguria e Toscana. Federica, la proprietaria, è stata disponibile e ci ha dato molti suggerimenti per la nostra breve vacanza.

L'antico frantoio è affascinante e conservato molto bene: la casa, adatta ad un gruppo di 5-7 persone, conserva il fascino di un'antica residenza di campagna (caminetto e lavandino in marmo in cucina, stufa a legna, tavoli in legno e culle in vimini!) pur essendo molto comoda e accogliente.

Lo consiglierermo sicuramente!

Antico Frantoio ottimamente ristrutturato

  • 5 of 5

Davvero una bella sorpresa..Questo antico Frantoio ha una atmosfera unica e , garantisco introvabile...Quelle scale di ingresso lasciano davvero a bocca aperta. Abbiamo fatto amicizia poi con Federica, ottima padrona di casa, premurosa ed attenta...

Il casale si trova a pochi km dalle 5 terre, da Sarzana (che consiglio,una piccola perla) , dalle Cave (spettacolo unico),ad 40 minuti da Lucca (imperdibile), ad 1 ora da Firenze.

Lo consiglio ,e l'ho consigliato ad amici e parenti.

Sopra le aspettative.

  • 5 of 5

Il vecchio frantoio è davvero grande e particolare, la parte con gli ingranaggi in castagno e le macine di pietra è molto suggestiva. La casa è elegante e ben attrezzata con molti confort, abbiamo potuto utilizzare anche il nostro account di Netflix!

Siamo stati fortunati, il tempo era soleggiato, così abbiamo potuto fare una bella passeggiata a Lerici e a Tellaro. Se decidete di soggiornare in questo posto vi consiglio una cena alla Bisteccheria di Ortonovo!
