We are Josh & Heather- lovers of travel, art and nature. Thank you for considering our 4 bed/4 bath stone cottage for rent in Northern Tuscany.
Our home away from home is a hillside destination situated on 2 acres in pristine orchards and vineyards near medieval towns, hilltop castles, the Via Francigena, the slot canyon Stretti di Giaredo (accessible via footpaths from our property), and the world renowned Cinque Terre.
We are a 3 mile (4.7 km) drive or 2.5 mile (4 km) walk from the Medieval town, Pontremoli, which hosts the largest Medieval Festival- Medievalis- every August. Our location is also convenient to the Parco Nazionale dell'Appennino Tosco-Emiliano. We welcome you to pick and enjoy fresh fruit from our trees, enjoy a glass of wine on our beautiful terrazza by a wood fire, or take in the stunning mountain vistas at sunset.
We are accessible by foot, bicycle, car, taxi, and train, and closest to the Milan and Pisa airports. We can also arrange for your pick-up from the train station in Pontremoli and we have 2 bicycles available for your use.
We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your stay at The Sanctuary.
