The charm of stone walls meets the comfort in a romantic, luxury suite with a complete kitchenette, for up to 4 adults and 1 toddler. A patio surrounded by Nature will give you privacy and relax.
Your holiday house is in the hamlet of Fornoli in Lunigiana, a still genuine region, away from the beaten path, with a rich history and food tradition. Still, it's an ideal base for day trips to many points of interest in half to one-hour drive radius: Cinque Terre, Portovenere, Carrara, Pisa, Lucca...

The space
The apartment has its independent entrance and it consists of a large living room, a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchenette, and a large patio connected to a little garden.
It can comfortably accommodate up to 4 adults and 1 toddler in its romantic and charming atmosphere. Free parking is a few meters away.

We love the authenticity of this area, the climate is mild and it's such a quiet countryside. We love as well the wide and rich culinary tradition born from the merging of many local cuisines, some of the oldest in Italy.

If you love nature, you can take long walks on the Apuan Alps, or go horseback riding up the hills, go rafting or fishing in the Magra river, and, during the autumn season, the forest of Fornoli is a paradise for mushroom hunters.

Why not take the opportunity to discover the beauty of Lunigiana itself? You will appreciate a place full of charm, with its wild and beautiful landscapes, its rich culinary traditions, its medieval towns, and its many castles. Summer evenings come alive with festivals and every small town has its "Sagra" based on local food; not to mention the prestigious literary prize "Bancarella" in Pontremoli and the medieval costume festival of Filetto…

Visiting Lunigiana you'll get immersed in its ancient history; ancient as the prehistoric "Stele statues" that are its symbol or as the rocks on which your holiday's apartment was built.

Where you’ll be

Villafranca in Lunigiana (MS), Massa-Carrara, Tuscany, Italy

We chose Lunigiana for its strategic location with easy reach of many of the most beautiful places in Tuscany, Liguria and Emilia Romagna. We are at an hour's drive from the airports of Pisa, Parma, and Genoa and one hour and a half from Florence's.

The place is wonderful if you want a romantic getaway to enjoy your free time in total relaxation, but it's also perfect if you're looking for a base for your excursions. In five minutes you can reach the train station of Aulla where you can catch trains that will allow you to comfortably visit the wonderful "Cinque Terre" in as little as 25 minutes.
In less than half an hour you can reach Lerici and the Gulf of Poets, or the sandy beaches of Marina di Carrara. In forty minutes you can hit Portovenere in the north-west, Forte Dei Marmi, and the Versilia coast in the south or visit the marble quarries of Carrara, in the south-east.

Hi, we are Silvia and Fabio, a 35 years old couple. We planned our honeymoon in the USA in 2012 with AIRBNB and really loved it! We are really into this way of traveling: it's about meeting people and deeply understanding the country you are visiting. Since some of our hosts have turned into friends, we can say we made a life experience out of it. Since summer 2013 we are also hosts, as we proudly own a breathtaking rural retreat that is a dependence of the country-house where we live. We chose to share the beauty of our guest-house, because we love Tuscany and especially Lunigiana. It's the place where we decided to live and work, leaving Milan three years ago. We left one of the biggest city in Italy and we were welcomed in a little community of 300 people; in the same way we will welcome you, bringing the world to our home. Even though we are respectful of the privacy of our guests, we love to meet people, sharing local food and talking about music. Actually, we create music for a living. We are both fluent in English, on parle assez bien le Fançais y hablamos un poco Español tambien! Ciao, siamo Silvia e Fabio, una coppia di trentacinquenni. Nel 2012 abbiamo programmato il nostro viaggio di nozze negli Stati Uniti con AIRBNB e ci è piaciuto davvero molto. Amiamo questo modo di viaggiare: si tratta di incontrare persone e capire profondamente il paese che si sta visitando. Dal momento che alcuni dei nostri padroni di casa si sono trasformati in amici, possiamo dire che i nostri viaggi sono stati un'ottima esperienza di vita! Dall'estate 2013 affittiamo la depandance della casa di campagna dove viviamo: una location, a nostro avviso, davvero mozzafiato. Abbiamo scelto di condividere la bellezza della nostra guest-house, perché amiamo la Toscana e soprattutto la Lunigiana. E' il luogo in cui abbiamo deciso di vivere e lavorare, lasciando Milano tre anni fa. Abbiamo lasciato la città e siamo stati accolti in una piccola comunità di trecento persone: accoglieremo allo stesso modo chi porterà il mondo a casa nostra! Anche se siamo rispettosi della privacy dei nostri ospiti, ci piace incontrare persone, condividere il cibo locale e parlare di musica. Scrivere musica è in realtà il nostro mestiere.
