L'Appartamento Azzurro was the original living quarters for il Poggiolo, an 800 year old Tuscan farm-house situated at the foot of Codiponte's Medieval castle in the Lunigiana. The apartment was entirely re-constructed & modernized in 2010 - 2011. The apartment is now an open living/dining & kitchen space with a sleeping loft above. Off the bedroom is a private terrace with lovely views of the village and the valley beyond covered with olive & chestnut groves.

Additional Location Information

L'Apartamento Azzurro del Poggiolo is in the antique village of Codiponte. The village's name in the local dialect means... "at the head of the bridge". And, in Medieval times, it was the only bridge to cross the Aulella River. The Pieve of Codiponte, the village's church, was a key way-station of the famous pilgrimage route to Rome, the via Francigena, over this bridge. There are six other churches to visit along this route nearby and before the Carpanelli Pass. Many walking trails & roads lace the surrounding hills of olive groves and to the Castle & Convent of Codiponte.

The community is the home to over 300 year-round residents, served by two small food shops, other stores for clothing & household items, a bar & tabaccheria... the "community center" of the village... and bus service. There is ample parking at the arrival end of the Medieval bridge and below it. Within a short drive is Casola in Lunigiana & Gragnola where there are many other shops & grocery stores. And in Gragnola is the train for either Lucca or Aulla & La Spezia.

The Lunigiana is noted for its many pristine borghi... or, stone villages, many guarded by stunning castles. In fact, there are over 120 castles & towers throughout the region to visit. The Mediterranean Sea is within a 40 minute drive from Codiponte. So too can Parma, Lucca, Pisa and its airport, and Genoa be easily reached by car for day-trips. The Cinque Terre is a convenient train trip from Aulla. And, closer-by are the charming towns of Sarzana, Massa & Cararra and their beach resorts.

Come & enjoy!
