Loc. Orsola, 54027 Pontremoli (Massa-Carrara)
On top of a hill offering an unbeatable view over the valley, the Apennines and the Apuan Alps, a 16th century rural complex, surrounded by the green Lunigiana mountains, has been completely renovated and transformed into a charming country hotel, retaining the traditional features of the rural environment, through the skilful use of original materials, supplemented with furnishings recreated by local craftsmen based on models seen in farmhouses in the Lunigiana area at the end of the 19th century.
The main house and the rooms once reserved for the farmer’s family have been turned into 14 different rooms, with private bathroom, telephone, TV, beds in wrought iron, vaulted or beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces and terracotta floors.
Careful choice of the produce and a creative chef are the recipe for success in the restaurant. In the old stone wine cellars or in the yard overlooking the valley, guests can taste traditional dishes from the Lunigiana area, made “the old fashioned way”, with recipes handed down from generation to generation.
In addition to the tennis court, in the centre of the park there is a swimming pool surrounded by flower-filled meadows. Ancient paths through the valley or in the hills along the Via Francigena can be followed on foot, horseback, mountain bike or quad bike.
The Lunigiana area is full of ancient castles and enchanting medieval villages. Very close to the sea, it is a short distance from famous cities of art such as Florence, Lucca and Pisa.
Gourmands cannot miss out on a trip to taste Emilian culinary specialties.
Finally, for those wanting to indulge in some extra fun, Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio, Versilia and the Cinque Terre are attractions not to be missed.
