Overview

About the property

This excellent cottage on the hills of the nearby historic town of Sarzana, surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, boasts an extremely calm and geographically ideal situation and is furnished with every comfort, free WiFi included. It is close by the sea, both that of the beaches of Marinella and Versilia and of the fishing villages of Lerici, Portovenere and the idyllic Cinque Terre, and not forgetting crystalline waters of the celebrated Golfo dei Poeti (Golf of the Poets). The view from the cottage opens up over the valley of the River Magra as far as the sea. The cottage enjoys a special position which allow excursions that will satisfy all manner of interests, from the not-to-be missed marble quarries of Carrara to the archaeological area of the ancient Luni, from boat outings to the Cinque Terre to the exploration of the numerous medieval villages and hamlets that climb the surrounding hills, some of which are endowed with splendid castles that can be visited (for example Castle Malaspina di Fosdinovo or Fortezza Castracani di Sarzana). For those who are passionate about mountains there is the possibility to go trekking, with routes of various levels of difficulty, along the paths of the Alpi Apuane, or experience the thrill of an alpine walk around dolomite rock directly overlooking the Mare Terreno (Tyrrhenian Sea). Not to be missed is the historical centre of Sarzana, which is also walking distance away, with its antique stores, noble residences, ancient churches and all types of excellent typical restaurants.

Why The Owner chose Sarzana

The property has been in my family for generations. It is a large piece of hilly land formed by a large olive grove and acres of woodland. On the property there are two buildings: the big house, where once lived the family of sharecroppers, and the barn, which housed hay and animals. When, in the 90s, it has become my property, I started to restore the olive grove and restore the barn, which, for years, became our holiday home. Later, when we have restored the big house, the one where we still live, the barn has become a holiday home for our guests, hoping that they will spend pleasant and serene time, in it, as it happened to us.

Nice place to rest

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely, settled in a garden filled with olive trees and offering the possibility to rest after visiting the countryside, all the more that the host agreed to switch OFF his wifi during night time to allow us to have a better sleep. There is also a fireplace in the living room - which we didn't use after all as the weather was mild, but certainly pleasant in other circumstances.

Excellent holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this excellent holiday home. We have returned because we love the home and the area. We enjoyed walking in the Apouane Alps, visiting the lovely hillside villages and relaxing at Lerici beach.

Beautiful location; even better hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the beautifully converted hay barn. It was so spacious and clean and really felt comfortable and secluded. Our hosts were so friendly and generous, giving us a plate of delicious figs directly from their trees. They even offered us a ride from the train station which we could not accept, but did then retrieve us from downtown Sarzana late at night when we got stranded without a taxi. We are so grateful for their excellent hospitality.

To get there, from the A12 motorway, take the exit for the Stazione di Sarzana (Sarzana Station). Afterwards follow the signs for the centre of Sarzana and then signs for the panoramic view of the Fortezza di Sarzanello. At the foot of the Fortezza follow the road to the right and continue in the direction of Paghezzana.

The cottage has excellent road access and its own independent drive with parking but it is not served by public transport. A car is therefore highly recommended. Should you wish to arrive by train there are taxis available from Sarzana Station. Otherwise, one can get off at the station of La Spezia, 15 km away, where it is possible to rent a car from the major car rental companies.
