Frazione Casa Corvi n. 220, strada comunale per Bassone , Pontremoli 54027 Pontremoli (Massa-Carrara)
The old rural mansion is a place where the beauty, culture and values of Lunigiana can live again.
The big original structure, so massive and so regular, naturally led to choose a style characterized by a simple but lasting taste. This is why floors are completely covered with authentic terracotta tiles which have been created and fired one by one; a large part of the roof is made of “piagne”, that is sandstone slabs, according to tuscan historical custom; the heavy doors as well as the window frames, all made of chestnut wood, are the fruit of joiners’ labour. Outside, the masonry-work with exposed stones definitely brings out the construction architectural force. Inside this last is still pretty perceptible: here the imposing chestnut beams give indeed a fierce sense of safety. No doubt, the house has great impact on the visitor: it seems to embrace people who get there. You can harmoniously touch it as a whole by running through its ups and downs of stairs; then, once under the cool arcade, you will come to play hide and seek with your own shadow among the pillars. The structure generous size allowed to make 4 flatlets furnished with few selected antiques and 7 spacious, comfortable bedrooms.
