Podere del Poggio is situated in the picturesque and unspoilt region of Lunigiana in northern Tuscany. The property is surrounded by chestnut covered hills with magnificent views of the Apennine Mountains and Apuane Alps. This dramatic backdrop provides excellent walking routes in the valleys and, for the more determined, the hills and mountains beyond. The beautiful Mediterranean coast is easily accessible with the impressive World Heritage Site of the “Cinque Terre” and the Gulf of Poets near La Spezia which attracted some of the world’s most celebrated poets including Percy Bysshe Shelley.

 

Podere del Poggio is privately accessed via a short drive and has approximately 3 acres of land which includes an olive grove, fruit trees and a magnificent 15m x 9m swimming pool with spacious terracing and shaded areas.

The property has been developed from a farm and consists of a house and a barn conversion with an attached chestnut house. The whole property has been lovingly restored over the last 6 years. The House and Barn each provide self contained accommodation and, although separate, the property is ideal for large parties and can accommodate 14 over the two houses. Whilst both properties have been completely renovated and modernised, they retain and include many original features, including terracotta floors and chestnut wood ceilings, vaulted kitchen and natural stone features.

Podere del Poggio is convenient to explore many places in northern Tuscany. The walled city of Lucca is approx 45mins away, Pisa, with its famous leaning tower, is only an hour’s drive, and there is a train service from the local station at Aulla direct to Florence.
