Casa Apuana is a light, airy and comfortable family home. It is one of the most private of a small number of properties in an attractive, secure, gated restoration of old vineyard buildings (Borgo le Vigne). There is parking and a delightful, good sized, pool with extensive views. The large downstairs room has a sitting and dining area and a modern fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom. The double has fantastic views, the twin has views over the back garden to distant mountains, both have full length windows. The peaceful garden on 3 sides of the house allows the choice of sun or shade at any time of day. The property is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves and the views over the Apuan Alps are breathtaking.
DETAILS OF THE AREA: Casa Apuana is an excellent base for visiting all the major Tuscan sites FLORENCE (1h on the train) SIENA and SAN GIMIGNANO (1.5h), VIAREGGIO and the coast (40 minutes). There are also numerous delightful and less well known places nearby.
