4 bedrooms with 4 en-suites and infinity style private pool
Located in 7 hectares of private land, this substantial, lovingly maintained, light and airy villa enjoys beautiful views over the Lunigiana countryside from both the house and the grounds.
The property is ideal for a group of two families, or 4 couples, since there is plenty of room both inside and out to all be together but also lots of space for private time.
Used until recently as the family holiday home, the villa is well equipped and a real home from home.
Consisting of a large living room, dining room, TV room, spacious kitchen, utility room, and downstairs cloakroom on the ground floor, with 4 bedrooms all en suite upstairs, and a further living area leading from two of the bedrooms there is plenty of room to relax in comfort.
Externally, the enormous gardens, surrounded by olive groves lend themselves to outdoor living, with a loggia attached to the house for al fresco dining, and a further loggia attached to the pool house for shaded relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This is a lovely holiday home in a delightful part of Tuscany. We greatly appreciated the warm welcome and helpful advice offered by Giancarlo and Antonia throughout our stay, The kitchen is very well equipped, the gardens are beautiful and well maintained, and the pool is a joy. Our family party included a grandmother and a teenager as well as a 10 year old and mum and dad and we all had a great holiday. Well worth a second visit!

Cet endroit est juste magnifique ! Au cœur de la nature, au calme, c'est une maison soignée et remplie d'histoire ... Quand vous y arrivez, vous oubliez tout et vous profitez pleinement. De la piscine, du jardin, de la vue, de l'aménagement chaleureux, de l'accueil soigné et de l'attention permanente du gardien des lieux. Nous y avons passé des vacances inoubliables. Merci et à l'année prochaine Monte Curto !
Peace and tranquility in Northern Tuscany
It was our first time to this part of Italy so not quite sure what to expect but certainly not disappointed. The villa is located in an extremely tranquil setting over looking the surrounding countryside. Ample space to relax and a great pool to wile away the hours under a Tuscan sun. If you are looking for the ultimate retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life then this is the place. Facilities generally good, although the kitchen is in need of some modernisation with appliances not in full working order and some of the showers could be more powerful. Gianluca, the properties caretaker, was very helpful and ensured that our stay was trouble free.
Activity and Interests
This property is set in complete peace in the midst of 7 hectares of private land, surrounded by a stream (with small waterfall) which can sometimes be heard gurgling in the distance. This location really is a little piece of paradise.
Despite the tranquil very rural environment, right on the Northern Tip of Tuscany, this villa is ideally located for exploring since it is not far from the motorway network. This is a major advantage over many of the Northern Tuscan locations
The closest village is a 20 min walk away, where there is a bar and basic shop and one can walk to a restaurant in say half hour. There are plenty of restaurants easily reachable by car, and the thriving village of Fivvizano is only a 15 min drive which also has a larger supermarket. The closest larger town is Aulla with its shops, restaurants, supermarkets and weekly market is a 15 min drive.
Ideal for exploring the Lucignana, rich in mediaeval history, with its Romanesque Churches, Castles and ancient villages, the famous Lucca area, the Tuscan coast, and the Cinque Terre, distances are as follows:
Bagnone 35 minutes
La Spezia 35 minutes – one can visit the cinque terre by hop on hop off train from here, or by boat
Beaches 40 mins, with Forte dei Marmi, playground of the rich and famous 50 mins
Cinque Terre , stunning coastal area, by car 1 hour
Pisa 1 hr 10 minutes
Genoa 90 mins

Bologna, pretty university city, home of Bolognese 2 hours 20 mins
Florence 2 hours
Lucca, beautiful, mediaeval walled city 1 hour 10 mins
