Charming and historical
We felt like we had stepped back in time. The town and home were authentic and historical. We enjoyed the tranquility of the surroundings and the pool and yard were fabulous. Great stay!
Thank you very much! We look forward to seeing you again
We really enjoyed our 2 week stay at this property. The grounds are kept very tidy and the rooms were clean upon arrival. I had heard bad stories about spiders and what not from others that had stayed at historic properties in Tuscany, but I'm happy to report that was not an issue for us. The lounge chairs around the pool were fantastic. The location is wonderful. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.
Thank you very much!
We absolutely loved this rental. It is even nicer than the pictures look. There is a fabulous little medieval town 200 meters away, which the Francigena trail passes right through (highly recommend exploring both of these!) The locals are great. There is little book of recommendations for you that includes fabulous restaurants in the nearby villages. We loved each one we tried. They treat you like family in these restaurants. Loved everything about this area and this little house. Clean, friendly and everything you need (including a strong shower with plenty of hot water!) It is a wonderful break from the heavy tourist areas, with authentic Italian charm.
Beautiful property, stunning, peaceful location
Lovely stone property - which keeps surprisingly cool in the heat, in a stunning location and well kept grounds. Pool was a big plus for our boys (Age 11, 9 and 6) - good size, very clean. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Kitchen is well equipped (maybe a few more wine glasses if there are more adults staying than we had) with a good sized table to sit 6. There are also two outside tables for eating if desired.
Location is rural, which we loved and a phrase book is essential if you don't speak Italian. The locals however were very friendly and patient with our attempts - which improved over our week stay. There is a great local restaurant in walking distance, open at lunch times and several local shops within a few minutes drive. A car is a must. From your location you have, walks from your door, a choice of historic hill top towns, mountains and the coast for easy day trips.
In my opinion, not a negative, more a bit of advice - don't rely on the WiFi - definitely through no fault of the owner or housekeeper, who fixed it half way through our holiday.
Would absolutely, definitely recommend - although if honest, would actually like to keep this undiscovered part of Tuscany a secret!
Thanks a lot for your review, I appreciated your comments and suggestions very much. I'm really sorry for the WiFi. It's the first year that we have the internet, and our provider turned out not to be very reliable. We're working to improve it.
La Casa Torre has been fantastic
Our holiday here at La Casa Torre has been fantastic. It's a really nice accommodation with garden and pool. The view of the mountain is amazing and we loved the quietness here. The little fresh water stream nearby is cool and a bit cold, but it as nice to be cooled.
We went to Cinque Terre by train from Pontremoli to Monterosso by train. The ticket is valid for up to six hours to travel between the Cinque Terre’s five villages.
Lucca is a nice old town, great shops. Genova has a cozy harbor; you can take whale-watching trips from the harbor as well.
We took a catamaran trip (Silent bay sailing charter) from Sestri Levante’ harbor. We can recommend the trip, quiet, swimming, and beautiful view from the sea. Sestri Levante is a fantastic city with the best ice cream (look up “ice cream angel” on Tripadvisor).
The Lunigiana area is really beautiful; we have seen the authentic nature and the cities. Bagnone, which has a nice bridge and castle, Aula and Fivizzano.
Pontremoli has a cozy little market and the gelateria is open late: until 23pm (if you really are in the need of an ice cream)
We had a fabulous meal at the Agriturismo Ristorante Podere Conti; to get there take the road up the mountain for approx. 5 km from a good bakery called Ricco’
It was nice to have the housekeeper around every day taking care of the garden, pool, stairs and having a big smile, she was very nice and gave us excellent advice for our trips
Thank you for a super stay!
Thank you for arranging such a fantastic weather for us. We have had the most relaxing Easter break ever!
Das Dorf Ponticello ist einer der ältesten Dörfer der Lunigiana. Die Häuser wurden alle aus Stein gebaut und seine kleinen Straßen sind nur für Fußgänger geeignet. Abseits vom Massentourismus findet man dort Ruhe und Erholung. Nicht weit entfernt befinden sich Kunststädte Pisa, Lucca, Florenz, Parma und Genua, aber auch kleinere, doch nicht weniger interessante, Dörfer wie Sarzana, Pontremoli, Filattiera, Filetto, Bagnone, Malgrate und Castagnetoli. Das Haus liegt nur 30 Kilometer vom Meer und dem berühmten Nationalpark der Cinque Terre entfernt. In der Nähe gibt es auch viele gute und preiswerte Gaststätten. Dort kann man die typischen „Testaroli al pesto“ sowie andere Delikatessen genießen. Die Berge des Appennino Tosco-Emiliano bieten wunderschöne Trekking Routen und sind der Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen zu Fuß oder zu Pferde.
