bright, sunny apartment in an ancient village on a hill between Villafranca and Bagnone.
Recently restored with a panoramic terrace, french doors to the living room, a large kitchen/dining room, a beautiful new bathroom, and two bedrooms upstairs.
There are magnificent views from the house and the terrace to the Apennines.
On an historical note, the village was a traditional resting place on the Via Francigena - the pilgrimage route from Canterbury to Rome, and the Archbishop of Canterbury stayed there in the 11th century.
Steps lead up from the narrow cobbled street where all village life takes place. The single street leads to the castle at the head of the town. It is possible to drive to the door for unloading, and parking is available in the piazza.
The property is probably 13th century but has been recently restored throughout. The village has a small 'shop' that sells bread and milk in the morning, and there are a range of shops, bars and restaurants in Villafranca only 3 km away which also has a large swimming pool complex and a train station with trains to Florence, La Spezia, and Parma. The beautiful old market town of Bagnone, 'the jewel of Lunigiana' is only 5 minutes drive away.
There are many lovely drives and walks into the hills where river pools for bathing may be found.
At Il Tinello you are in the heart of a lively Italian village, but can also sit peacefully on your terrace with a glass of wine looking out across the valley to the hills beyond.
