LOCATION

The area around Sarzana caters to many different tastes, offering a wealth of leisure-time pursuits for people of all ages. Watersports enthusiasts can swim, windsurf, sail and go sea-fishing in the Mediterranean, while sun-worshippers can bask idly on the unspoilt sandy beaches. The nearby inland Apuan Alps mountain range, which reaches as high as 1,750 metres above sea-level, provides extensive opportunities for leisurely walking, more strenuous hiking, serious climbing or carefree cycling in fantastic scenery.

For those fascinated by history, art and architecture, the medieval town of Sarzana, set in the valley below, invites you to explore its lovely historic centre and magnificent churches, which acquired special importance when the town took over the bishopric of Luni during the Middle Ages.

If, however, it is exclusive regional cuisine that you've come in search of, the villages hugging the local coast-road from Bocca di Magra to Lerici boast some excellent fish restaurants.

Il Pettirosso Cottage is located within easy reach of the area's main sights of outstanding natural beauty or historic and artistic interest, such as the following: the medieval town of Sarzana (10 mins); the Cinque Terre villages; the Gulf of Poets; Portovenere; Portofino; the Apuan Alps and the white-marble quarries of Carrara (20 mins by car); the beaches of Versilia (30 mins by car); the famous Tuscan towns of Pisa (40 mins by car), Lucca (30 mins by car) and Florence (1 hour).

Many other unspoilt beaches dotted along the nearby coast can be accessed by car in about 15 mins.

Regular daily ferry services operate from the local ports of Lerici, La Spezia and Marina di Carrara (15 kms away) to the Gulf of Poets; Portovenere; the Cinque Terre villages; Portofino; and Genoa.

About the area

The actual villages of the Cinque Terre may be reached from the villa either by car, by ferry, or by train. The train station in La Spezia is only a five minute drive from the villa and trains depart almost every hour for the Cinque Terre. The ferry dock is also only about 10 minutes from the villa and is probably the most panoramic alternative. Although the Cinque Terre towns are better known, also the towns of Portovenere, Lerici, Fiascherino, and Montemarcello are all well worth visiting and all within 20-30 minutes by car from the villa. Lucca, Florence, and Pisa are also all feasible day trips.
