“Beautiful house with stunning views! Located just outside of Castagnetoli is this beautiful house with a large tranquil garden. You need a car to get there and if you’re not very confident in driving in the dark in the mountains it’s a smart move to buy groceries in pontremoli so you can cook yourself, the kitchen is well equipped. Alexander is a great host who welcomed us himself, gave us tips about food and places to go (what’s the best way to cinque terre etc) and even provided us with some of his homegrown veggies! Real recommendation!”
The Sanctuary, a secluded hillside stone cottage overlooking the Gordana River with views of the Apennine National Park. Surrounded by nature and history this villa feels lost in the country yet only 7 minutes by car to the center of lovely Pontremoli for restaurants, shopping and the train station. Centrally located for day trips to Cinque Terre, Parma, Lucca and Florence. The private grounds feature a natural pool, vineyard, fruit trees, walking paths, and a patio with fireplace and fountain.
“Josh and Heather’s place is named The Sanctuary and it’s a fitting name! This is the most peaceful place I’ve encountered in Italy. I had a chance to taste life in the country with easy access to Pontremoli and the train station. They recommended which Taxi to use and had Enricho waiting for me when my train arrived at the station. Josh gave me a tutorial regarding trains which is useful for an American traveler using public transportation. Josh and Heather gave me the best tips and advice about what to see and do in the area and even arranged a cooking class for me to attend. If you like hiking this is the place as it is close to Cinque Terre and other national parks, as well as a country walk to Torrano and the use of local trails from the property Josh has created. My morning breakfast was so filling, healthy and delicious! A great way to fuel up for an exciting day. Each night I slept in silence in a cozy and soft bed with really comfortable Belgian linens. The pool is a work of Art and very refreshing. They have many fruits and nuts on the property which you can harvest and eat. My hosts also provide some food and drink options and laundry for a very low price which made life easy. I also enjoyed the company of Viggo and the kittens which really made me feel at home. I have no complaints and I highly recommend that you stay here. Its just a few minutes from town and affords you many peaceful walks in the country with beautiful song birds, mushrooms everywhere, olive groves, vineyards, panoramic views and plenty of space for reflection and contemplation. Book now, you won’t be sorry!”
The quiet house is surrounded by the green hills of the Lunigiana, deep in a forest of chestnut trees with a lovely view on the mountain chain of the Apennines. It is not far from the mediterranean coast and the Cinque Terre (Unesco Heritage).
“We spent a wonderful time in the house of Patrizia and Claudio. In the tastefully and comfortably furnished house is really everything available, what you need for a holiday. The kitchen and bathroom equipment leaves nothing to be desired. The garden with some seating and hammocks invites you to relax in the beautiful mountainous landscape of northern Tuscany. Not least because of the incredible hospitality of Patrizia and Claudio, fantastic apple pie, delicious red wine and great tips for things to do and eat in the area, we felt at home and enjoyed every second of our stay. Since the two live in close proximity to the accommodation, the check-in and check-out was easily possible (thank you, that you have been waiting for us ;-)) and you can jerderzeit with his questions and concerns to both. Thank you for the great holiday in your little paradise. We will definitely come back Lena and Adrian”
