This villa is something quite special, perched on the top of a hill with breath taking views towards the sea . Balconies ensure that you can take full advantage of them whilst enjoying the privacy and tranquility.
Villa Salvini is surrounded by a private garden near the top of a hill overlooking the sea along the Tuscan-Liguria border. Although it is only 10 km from the sea, it is high enough into the foothills of the Apuan Alps to provide cool temperatures in summer, beautiful colours in autumn and heavily-scented flowers in spring.
Just 300 metres down the road is the beautifully preserved medieval hamlet of Peralta, whose residents always extend a warm welcome to newcomers. Because it is slightly off the beaten track, this area offers a wonderful opportunity to experience Italy as the Italians do, not merely as a foreign holiday destination.
Inside, Villa Salvini is furnished like an authentic Italian home, with a mixture of comfortable contemporary pieces and antiques. It is the owners personal holiday home. There is even a computer with internet connection at your disposal.
Your family ican spend time enjoying the garden, which has a table and chairs, sun lounges, an outdoor shower and a wood-burning oven that can be used for pizza or for barbecuing. There is a swimming-pool 7.5m x 4 m.
Despite its proximity to Peralta, the property is totally secluded and private. Just down the road is the lovely hill town of Camaiore; Lucca (25 km) and Pisa (30 km) are only slightly further. Day trips are easy to the Cinqueterre.
If you're here in summer you'll want to experience a day on the beach and immerse yourself in Italian beach culture which is very entertaining, The "bella figura" along the board walk will keeps you amused for hours.
Any time of year is great to explore the almost entirely unknown hills of the Garfagnana, behind the villa and inland, they are a part of Tuscany that has escaped the attention of mass tourism and retained the authenticity of centuries past.
