Lunigiana, and its near neighbour Garfagnana, are picturesque parts of Tuscany, but as yet uncommercialised. Set between the Apennine Mountains, the Apuan Alps and the Mediterranean coastline of Italy, this is a sunlit land of chestnut covered hills, crowned by medieval villages, yet easily accessible by road and air.
Our carefully chosen selection of properties are within easy reach of the Cinque Terre, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and La Spezia, all of which offer a surfeit of sightseeing, not to mention a mouth-watering selection of eateries where you can sit back with a glass of wine and watch the world go by.
Anyone who turns their nose up at sitting and sipping is equally well catered for, and the area is very popular with cyclists and walkers from all over the world. The valleys provide excellent walking routes, and determined trekkers can always head for the hills of the Apuan Alps. River rock pools offer fishing or swimming in scenic surroundings, and there is horse-riding, tennis or a round of golf at the local resorts. Skiing is available in winter months.
If you’re not tied to school holidays, come and spend springtime here. In April, May and June the weather is usually warm with vivid flowers everywhere. Or you may prefer autumn, still warm but with a cooler tang in the air and, if you like the leaf changes in New England, you’ll love them here too.
