We really enjoyed our stay in Sarzana, the house was spotless & perfect for a couple. We had breakfast most mornings in the outdoor kitchen, before heading out for the day. The house was ideal for us, because we don't like to stay anywhere too 'touristy'-but like to be able to visit all the main sights & towns in the area.The train station is a few minutes away & within 10 minutes you are in the town centre. Lots of great restaurants,(you will not go hungry!!) cafes, & lovely little shops.
Marco & all his family were very welcoming, great hosts.
(Beyond the garden walls there are a couple of tall buildings, so no open views- don't let that put you off, it's a great spot)
