PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Sleeps: 10

Folegnano, Fivizzano - Lunigiana Tuscany

A delightful and warm home, Villa Isotta is the product of many years of meticulous and loving restoration by the previous owner who has maintained many of the original features as well as furnishing Villa Isotta elegantly and tastefully. Situated on the hillside in the hamlet of Folegnano, Villa Isotta enjoys spectacular views to the Apuan National Park in the heart of Lunigiana. This impressive casa grande is spacious and comfortable and the ambience is one of a much loved home with atmospheric kitchen, delightful loggias and scenic terraces.

Villa Isotta is built on several levels with delightful terraces and loggias where guests can enjoy dining al fresco, early evening aperitivi and lazy afternoons lying in the sun. The spacious and comfortable living room has a stunning stone fireplace and dining area leading onto a terrace from which one can gaze at the breathtaking mountains. Beyond here is a cool and peaceful tower room – ideal for siestas and reading - or for use as a futher bedroom.

The kitchen is excellently equipped with all that keen foodies could wish for including a large island made from local cardoza stone, beautiful stufa oven from Verona and large electric oven with gas hobs. The kitchen leads onto another terrace with pergola where guests can linger over lunch after a dip in the pool a couple of terraces below. Upstairs, there are three spacious and beautifully appointed double bedrooms and one twin bedroom with original tiled floors and two bathrooms/shower rooms as well as an additional bathroom on the ground floor. Steps from the kitchen terrace lead down to a delightful loggia leading to the enchanting and private cantina apartment fully equipped with kitchen and living room. The cantina apartment provides fabulous additional accommodation for larger groups as well as a playroom for families.

The gardens and terraces are stunning with olive and cypress trees, lilies, roses, lavender and juniper and the encolsed deep water pool is cleverly positioned beneath the house with plenty of sun beds and sunshades where guests can relax and unwind – a haven for switching off from the stress of modern day living.

Nearby, there is lots to explore be it the thermal pool and treatments at Equi Terme, the market at Fivizzano or walking in the Apuans. A fabulous drive or train journey takes one to medieval Lucca and only an hour away is the stunning Ligurian coast with the Cinque Terre, Portovenere and Lerici where one can savour delicious seafood and white wine.

Villa Isotta cannot be too highly recommended and is the ideal venue from which to explore the beautiful and magical region of Lunigiana.

About the area

The Lunigiana is a historical territory of Italy, which today falls within the provinces of La Spezia and Massa Carrara. Its borders derive from the ancient Roman settlement, later the medieval diocese of Luni, which no longer exists. Lunigiana, a mountainous region dissected by the Magra river, covers an area which runs from the Apennines to the Mediterranean Sea, now belongs in part to Tuscany and in part to Liguria. It takes its name from Luni, a Roman town, perhaps pre-dated by an Etruscan settlement, which became the principal urban center on the northern Tuscan coast.
