Il Mandorlo is a stone house made up of two residential units that we have recently renovated trying to maintain its original features such as chestnut wood beams, stone floors, but providing it with comfort and using ecological materials.
It is located in a small village inhabited at 900 mi. beside the viaFrancena where every year the famous race of the Abati da Bobbio takes place in Pontremoli.
The house for guests is composed on the ground floor with independent entrance, equipped kitchen and on the first floor with a large living room overlooking the valley, with a sofa bed, three bedrooms of which two are communicating and a bathroom.
Outside there is a large garden with a gazebo where you can have lunch while admiring the wonderful panorama and the rich fauna of the
The area enjoys a particularly healthy climate because the marine wind blows.
Numerous walks start from the house: going along the Via Francigena you arrive at the small church of San Cristoforo belonging to the Parish churches.
