Additional Location Information

The place is wonderful if you want a a romantic getaway to enjoy your free time in total relax, but it's also perfect if you're looking for a base for your excursions. In five minutes you can reach the train station of Aulla where you can catch trains that will allow you to comfortably visit the wonderful "Cinque Terre" (however, you can get there in forty-five minutes by car). In less than half an hour you can reach Lerici and the Gulf of Poets, or the sandy beaches of Marina di Carrara. In forty minutes you can hit Portovenere at northwest, Forte dei Marmi and the Versilia coast at south or visit the marble quarries of Carrara, in the southeast. Pisa, Lucca, Genoa and Parma are all just an hour drive. Even Florence can be visited within the day, being just an hour and half away.
If you love nature, you can take long walks on the Apuan Alps, or go horseback riding along the beach or up the hills, go rafting or fishing in the Magra river and in autumn the forest of Fornoli is a paradise for mushroom finders.

Why not to take the opportunity to discover the beauty of Lunigiana itself? You will appreciate a place full of charm, with its wild and beautiful landscapes, its rich culinary traditions, its medieval towns and its many castles. Summer evenings come alive with festivals and every small town has its "sagra" based on local food; not to mention the prestigious literary prize "Bancarella" in Pontremoli and the medieval costume festival of Filetto…

Visiting Lunigiana you'll get immersed in its ancient history; ancient as the prehistoric "Stele statues" that are its symbol or as the rocks on which your holiday's apartment was built.
