About Michael Ringrose
We are an Irish family living in Asia. We purchased Il Susino in 1999 and renovated it about 7 years ago.
Michael Ringrose purchased this House in 1999
Why Michael Ringrose chose Borgo A Mozzano
The house has outstanding views and is surrounded by woodland in a lush valley. It was an old barn, that has been completely refurbished. The name, Il Susino, comes from the plum trees that surround the house.

Lucca is a beautiful walled medieval city, which is the birthplace of Puccini. The city is mostly pedestrianised, which is fantastic for cycling and walking. Most guests enjoy cycling round the ramparts of the city wall. The countryside north of Lucca is breathtaking with many medieval villages perched on wooded hillsides. There are many beautiful palazzos and vineyards to visit in the area. Florence, Pisa and the beaches are all within a short distance. There are excellent restaurants, including a Michelin star, within ten minutes of the house. The Tuscan ski resort of Abetone is only one hour away and has generally excellent snow from January to March. The immediate surroundings of the house are beautiful and most guests enjoy this for relaxation or exercise. There are lovely walks and circuits (between 2 to 6 kms) in the wooded hills around the property. Visit the ruined church on top of the hill. See the snow-capped Apuan Alps.
