About the property

Historical House, luxury finishings, sleep 12, Near Cinque Terre, Garden, Pool

Large and comfortable stone house that can host up to 11/12 guests in large bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, all with whirlpool showers, its own private garden, pool, and parking with automatic gate. An extra double bedroom with suite and bathroom is available on ground floor, increasing the guests to 11 plus babies (it has an external separate entrance) - extra charge. Fully renovated in 2014, with carefully chosen luxury finishings, it is in this famous and charming Lunigiana, the part of Tuscany on Liguria border, between hills and beaches. 4+1 large double bedrooms (two are in a family suite sharing a bathroom), large dining and living area, brand new kitchen. The garden is large with trees and pool, with BBQ area and a nice gazebo to eat outside in the shade in the sunny summer days. Porch with garden furniture, ideal for relaxing after a sunny day. In the antique tower a cellar for wine tasting waits for you with a choice of local and Tuscan wines!

All rooms with interphone, independent heating, large windows, stunning view over the Alps and the valley. It is ideally located in a private corner of the village, inside the one thousand- year old medieval tower, completely renovated and restored, at 5 minutes walking from nearest grocery store, wine bar, restaurant. A horse riding place, a small river to bath and fish in, a lot of hiking tracks, this is all at hand.

The famous Cinque Terre, the sandy beaches of Versilia and the Gulf of Poets, Portovenere, Lerici are at 30 minutes driving. Relax in the sun and enjoy this still unspoiled part of Tuscany!

We live in a separate part of the house, on first floor: while we absolutely respect your privacy (pool and garden are for your exclusive use only), we are always at hand if you need any information, tip or help.

Impressive Tuscan villa with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful renovated house contained within the ancient village walls with spectacular mountain and valley views.

We were a family of 7 adults and the house easily accommodated us all. The owners were very friendly and were quick to resolve any issues.

The village is quaint, the people are friendly, even if you have limited Italian.

Lots to do and see in the area. We had two cars but used the trains to go to Florence, Pietrasanta and Cinque Terre. They were clean, on time and easy to use, with plenty of free parking.

Internet access in the house was good, the pool was nice and clean. Our stay coincided with Corpus Christi. The local residents decorated the village footpaths and buildings with dried flower murals which were spectacular. We loved the church and the church bells, very Italian!

We enjoyed a really good family holiday here and would definitely recommend it.

Vi var 9 personer (5 vuxna och 4 ungdomar) som bodde här och huset hade bra utrymmen för oss alla. Ett av rummen hade separat ingång vilket för oss var bra då våran "mormor" var med och hon kunde dra sig undan om hon ville. På gångavstånd i byn finns 2 mataffärer där frukost inköp mm kan göras av härliga Italienska damer. du kan även gå en bit för att komma till restaurang, tågstation och turistinformation. Huset är en fantastisk blandning av det genuina med sin historia från 998 e,kr och det moderna man vill ha på sin semester, man får en känsla av att gå in en film när man vandrar i dom fina små gränderna intill huset. Eftersom ägarna till huset också bor där har man på ett fantastiskt sätt (om man vill) tillgång till tips från dom, dom är dessutom super trevliga! Trädgården rymmer blommor, fruktträd, sittplatser både i sol och skugga och en FANTASTISK UTSIKT! Tack för en super semester, hoppas vi kommer tillbaka då mycket finns kvar att upptäcka.// Malin

Super séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine magnifique !!!

A 10 personnes.

Plusieurs visites dans les alentours (compter entre 30 min et 1h15).

Un coup de coeur pour Portovenere.

Les hôtes sont plus que sympa : Discrets et attentionné.

Je recommande fortement.

Härliga Italien!

  • 5 of 5

Vi har haft en härlig vistelse i detta fina hus som är välutrustat och mycket vackert inrett. Stora luftiga rum med fina badrum. Ägarna är så trevliga och tillmötesgående och gav oss många bra tips på aktiviteter. Vi var 2 familjer med 4 ungdommar och alla uppskattade verkligen omgivningen och poolen. Trädgården har många olika fruktträd och fina blommor. Huset ligger i en mysig by som har gångavstånd till 2 mindre butiker där vi handlade frukost varje dag, färkst bröd och fina delikatesser. Även gångavstånd till en liten pub där de sålde glass. Med våra hyrbilar tog man sig enkelt runt i byarna och även ner till havet. Vi tog tåget in till La Spezia för shopping och för att enkelt komma vidare till Cinque Terre. Se Cinque Terre från havet - vi tog båten på tillbakavägen och det är så vackert. Även byn Portovenere är väl värt ett besök. Vi kände att en vecka gick fort och det finns så mycket fint att se så vi åker kanske hit flera gånger.

Soliera is in Lunigiana Valley, a beautiful part of Tuscany on the border with Liguria. The valley is green and peaceful, still very well connected as motorway exit is just 10 kms away. The coasts are close by, Cinque Terre, Lerici, Portovenere all at less than 30 minutes driving distance. Lucca, Pisa, Viareggio are also easy to reach. Adventure Park for kids, Natural Parks, great hiking tracks.
