About the property

This wonderful old stone house has been lovingly restored by the owners into two lovely separate floors with stunning views of the Apuan Alps. There is a large open courtyard to the front with wonderful views across the valley.

The attractive swimming pool has been landscaped into the grounds to the rear of the property and the views from here are stunning.

It is situated in a peaceful hamlet walking distance from the old village of Gragnola, which has a good selection of shops, bars, restaurants, buses and a railway station. A few minutes down the hill there is an excellent pizzeria where you can dine outside. Equi Terme is only ten minutes drive away where there are several excellent restaurants, as well as in Monzone.

There's aprivate garden area with magnificent views and enjoys the use of the pool and well-equipped barbecue area.

Since this year only the flat in the ground floor will be rented. Anyway in the first floor are living the owners but the condition of exclusive use of the garden and the others common places is still almost the same for te renters.

Uren genieten in fijne tuin met zwembad

  • 4 of 5

Op zoek naar een onderkomen voor onze vakantie in de buurt van Cinque Terre kwamen we in Cortila terecht. Een aanrader vanwege de reusachtige tuin en het fijne zwembad. Het huis zelf is bescheiden. Alles in voorraad, maar veel is aan vernieuwing en/of reparatie toe: deurklinken, lichtschakelaars en -contacten, kranen en wc-brillen. Paolo en zijn familie zijn bijzonder vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Maar ook zij kunnen het niet helpen dat we zowel binnen als buiten de prooi waren van zwermen muggen, spinnetjes en mieren. Preventieve en verzorgende zalfjes zijn onmisbaar!

Traumhafter Urlaub

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub in Cortila. Das Anwesen ist ein Traum, der Garten gleicht einem Park, der Pool und die Aussicht ist phantastisch.Die Ausstattung im Haus ist einfach aber außer einer Kaffeemaschine wie wir sie kennen, fehlte nichts. Wirklich zu empfehlen!

Heerlijke plek voor een ontspannen vakantie

  • 5 of 5

Een ruim huis in een heel rustig gehucht boven in de bergen. Het interieur is basic maar wat wil je anders in de zomer. De tuin is enorm met een fijn zwembad en een paar plekken om te eten in de tuin. Als je van rust en ruimte houdt is dit echt aan te raden.

  • 5 of 5

"Superbe endroit, au calme, avec vue imprenable sur les montagnes. Une piscine très grande pour nous seuls. La maison est très bien équipée, avec trois grandes chambres dont une avec salle de bain privée. De belles promenades à faire, chouette petit village à proximité (15 minutes à pied). Les proprios sont excessivement gentils, aimables et serviables. La machine à laver est tombée en panne, elle a été remplacée par une nouvelle dans les deux jours ! La piscine est loin de la maison, avec une extraordinaire endroit barbecue à coté. Ceci permet aux parents de se reposer sur la terrasse sans les bruits des enfants."

  • 5 of 5

"agréable maison bien équipée dans un environnement magnifique et très calme; la vue sur les montagnes, le jardin et la piscine sont exceptionnels...nombreuses excursions à faire dans les alentours, des cinq terres à Portovenere, la côte est superbe.

les propriétaires sont très accueillants, et l''on trouve vite ses marques dans les petits commerces et cafés du village de Gragnola...

à recommander !"
