Between Tuscany and Liguria, in the heart of Lunigiana, a few kilometres from Sarzana and the motorway exit and close to the Gulf of Poets with its renowned seaside resorts, stands this completely renovated structure, currently used as an agritourism.
Originally it was an old water mill, completely made of stone, located in a suggestive valley with a stream surrounded by greenery, on the sides the characteristic Ligurian terraces on which numerous olive trees, lemons and typical Mediterranean products grow.
The ancient path of the Via Francigena passes right here, leading pilgrims from the countries of northern Europe to Rome. The stones of this ancient path, partly still visible, together with the stone bridge that leads to the land on the other side of the stream, always part of the property, are also from the Roman period. This bridge, also of Roman age, is called “Hannibal’s Bridge” because it is said that from there, he passed with his army on the descent towards Rome over 2,000 years ago.
The location is particularly fortunate because it enjoys a favourable microclimate, pleasant even in the winter months and cool in summer thanks to the water course that runs alongside. It is an incredibly peaceful place, an oasis of peace for those seeking silence and contact with nature; foxes, roe deer and wild boars are the neighbours…
As for the property, it is a completely renovated building, on several levels staggered across the territory, for a total of approximately 480 square meters. Currently, in addition to the home of the property, it is used as an accommodation facility with an agritourism and restaurant open to the public from spring to autumn.
Each room or apartment has its own bathroom and independent entrance, with terraces or outdoor spaces overlooking the pool or the stream below. The land of the property is about 20,000 square meters plus 6,000 square meters of wood. Eventually there is other adjacent land available in large part cultivable, with numerous olive trees planted that already produce a fair amount of excellent quality oil.
The price is upon request.
