About Gualtiero Bernacca
We are a family that has chosen the country life, though we love the sea, and in fact, we live just 100 meters from the holiday home. Gualtiero used to be corporate executive who, when he retired, decided to renovate the old home of his wife Stefania’s grandparents, and restore the olive grove and vineyard of the family. In fact, we produce olive oil and wine, we cultivate a vegetable garden for our family and friends, and the result are the delicious products we nowadays offer our guests. Stefania is a Music teacher and graduated in playing the piano. Gabriele is 12 years old, attends the 7th grade and is quite a football player. Carlotta, the youngest of the family, is 6 years old and of course is our 'darling'. I forgot the fifth member of the family, Snoopy, a small Maltese dog of 2 years, the one we love to spoil.

What makes this Apartment unique
Santo Stefano di Magra is part of the regional natural park of Montemarcello-Magra, and boasts a territory rich of historical architectures, nestled in a picturesque landscape, which from the hills dominated by the ancient villages descends towards the river Magra. Santo Stefano di Magra was once an important transit point along the Via Francigena, the “Pilgrim’s road” par excellence to Rome, the Holy Land and Santiago of Compostela. Along with the pilgrims came ideas, culture and trade, and the medieval road helped make it known also as an important market place, starting from the 9th century. From Santo Stefano di Magra, our guests can easily reach Sarzana (the town that gave birth to the Bonaparte dynasty), Lerici and La Spezia; 250 meters down the road is the bus stop, with buses every 20/25 minutes. From the train station of Santo Stefano di Magra (2.5 km), you can reach the Cinque Terre in just 20 minutes. Santo Stefano di Magra is a strategic location to reach the main art cities (Pisa 60 km, Genoa 100 km, Lucca 45 km, Florence 130 km and Parma 100) and holiday resorts (Forte dei Marmi 35 km, Viareggio 40 km, Portovenere 27 km, Portofino 55 km).
