Other things to note

The Tuscany region
The word Tuscany conjures images of olive groves and vineyards, fine food and wine, romantic farmhouses lined with cypress trees and of course the sun set over Florence. Tourists are drawn every year by these beautiful images they see in glossy magazines, travel guides and through film and television. Many visitors can be forgiven for thinking that Chianti, Siena and Florence encompasses all Tuscany has to offer, however this is not so, and although these areas are enchanting there is much more to discover. Lunigiana offers a truly unspoilt corner of Tuscany and an inspired destination for the Italian traveller. The most Northern tip which borders the colourful Gulf of the Poets. The nearby Versilia coast overflows with sea side charm and is within easy reach the impressive city of Lucca, rich with Italian architecture and culture. In order to really understand Tuscany it is essential to experience its many contrasts and only then will you discover its true spirit.
Lunigiana is an area rich in history and tradition and set amidst magnificent scenery. The generous hospitality and relaxed pace to life make this a perfect destination for those wishing to escape the rush of modern life. The nearby Gulf of the Poets has attracted many writers, artists and film makers over the years. The quiet cosmopolitan coastline still retains its authenticity and charm. Excellent transport links provide easy accessibility to many of the centres of both Tuscany and Liguria.
If you have a passion for Italy and a desire to explore the less beaten tracks, then Lunigiana will not fail to impress. The only way to appreciate all that the region has to offer is to see it with your own eyes. We are sure that after your visit this will be a place you find difficult to forget.

Un séjour de calme et de repos perché sur une montagne magnifique. Le logement est très agréable et bien décoré. Tout le nécessaire est à disposition. Bien situé pour la visite des cinq terres. Possibilité de randonnées dans le parc nationale où est située la location.

Villa del Melo is een aanrader voor mensen die op zoek zijn naar rust in een prachtige omgeving. Het huisje is ruim en voorzien van alle nodige infrastructuur. Wel moet je rekening houden dat er zo goed als geen winkels in de buurt zijn en je toch een 20-tal minuten moet rijden om een Conad te vinden (Aulla) waar je al je boodschappen kan doen. Het zwembad is niet heel groot/diep maar is heel proper en zalig. Marta onthaalt je heel hartelijk en geeft je tijdig de nodige uitleg. Zeker een aanrader.
