Pretty cottage in Tuscan hills with stunning views
Peaceful mountain location with lovely coast 30 minutes away
Sleeps 2 (1 Bedroom)
This lovely stone cottage is situated in the pretty village of Busatica in the magical Lunigiana part of northern Tuscany. It is a peaceful location with expansive and extensive views over the valley and two mountain ranges. The house contains an open plan living room/kitchen on the top floor with exposed beams and stunning views out on two sides. Downstairs there is a double bedroom and bathroom with shower. Outside you can enjoy a glass of Tuscan wine on our pretty terrace. The Ligurian coastline (including the famous Cinque Terre) is 30 minutes away with Lucca, Pisa and Florence also easily accessible for a daytrip. The coast, with public and private beaches, restaurants and regular boats out to nearby islands, is a 20-30 minute drive. We go there every day in the summer! The famous Cinque Terre with its fishing villages is 40 minutes away. It is the combination of the beautiful countryside of meadows, hills and mountains plus the coastline that makes Busatica so unique.
The bedroom has a double bed, a wardrobe, a bedside table, two reading lights and a chair.
The bathroom contains a modern shower unit, a wc, a bidet, a sink and a towel rail.
The kitchen contains a smeg oven, a Habitat belfast sink unit, a small fridge (with freezer unit) and butcher's block and a table with four chairs. It also contains all the necessary utensils for some Tuscan cooking!
The open plan living room contains a two seater sofa and an arm chair. There are two book cases and a large sideboard. There is also a TV and a DVD player.
The house will be cleaned at the beginning and at the end of your stay. Towels and linen are included.
Fridge/Freezer, Hob/Stove, Oven.
The property is situated in a medieval village so there are some interesting stone steps up and down.
There is a small terrace with outdoor tables and chairs that can easily seat two or even four people. Below the terrace is a small garden and beyond this the village church.
