Description from manager

VILLA IL CASTELLETTO

Sleeps 6 to 12: 6 bedrooms, 6 en suite bathrooms, 1 family bathroom

Charming 1500 century villa for 12 people, with pool and Spa between Liguria and Tuscany at few mins from the beaches and close to the Cinque Terre.

Il Castelletto is set on a hill at the foot of the Apuane Alps amongst olive groves, chestnut and oak forest. Everywhere you look you will be captivated by the splendid views that take in the entire valley below, leading to the shores of the near by Mediterranian sea and continuing to the Gulf of Portovenere.

Originally Il Castelletto was defensive stone tower built around 1400 to defend the nearby medieval Malaspina castle. Today it has been transformed into a beautiful and elegant holiday villa, restructured by the owner with great care and maximum attention to detail.

A harmony of colours pervade the interiors with walls plastered in traditional Tuscan pinks and yellows and the brilliant green and white of the local Carrara marble.

Many walls have been left bare to expose the ancient rough hewn stone work which combine with traditional terracotta floors, chestnut beam ceilings and a considered selection of old prints and antiques to create a warm and luxurious atmosphere.

ACCOMMODATION

Il Castelletto is on four floors:

Each floor is reachable either by internal stair case or by an internal panoramic lift. The villa is entered from a large external patio which is furnished with out door dining facilities and perfect for taking in the stunning panoramas.

On the ground floor entering from this patio you will find a new and functional brilliantly equipped kitchen adjacent to the dining room. Fine Persian carpets and gold leaf mirrors characterize this room which is a cosy place on winter days with the fire alight.

These bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with showers. Also on this level is a splendid sauna room and the Jacuzzi with hot water.

The main entrance on the first floor leads to an elegant living room with a fireplace in white Carrara marble. The comfortable sofas and armchairs are in complete harmony with the coloured walls which are a soft green.In the living room you can also find Satellite television and large windows that take in the magnificent and extensive views.

On the same floor there is a charming double bedroom with an en suite bathroom with a shower. A wooden staircase or the lift leads to the second floor where there are two romantic double bedrooms.
