The Sanctuary, a renovated 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.
“This wonderfully updated medieval villa is a gem! We were a group of 4 couples who thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Sanctuary. The house was laid out perfectly with each couple having a room and bathroom (all en-suite except for one that is directly across the hall) as well as numerous group gathering spots both indoors and out. The views are amazing in all directions, and the villa is perfectly situated in a location that allows you to feel isolated while still being close enough to town for groceries and restaurants. Pontremoli is a lovely town with several great restaurants (our host Josh was very helpful with recommendations) as well as very interesting history. We enjoyed exploring the area and visiting the castle museum to learn about the stele statues that are over 5000 years old. We used the Sanctuary as a base for several day trips including Cinque Terre, Florence, Pisa, and Lucca. Josh helped us find an excellent tour at a local winery, Ca’lunae, with a wonderful guide Gianmarco. Our dinner arranged by Josh and prepared at the villa by local chef Rosy was unforgettable. We would highly recommend this home as a place for a group or family gathering. We loved our time here and made many lasting memories!”
