Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The hills which encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are extremely inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hours’ drive away. The beautiful coastline includes the pretty town of Lerici, with a castle where boats are available to Portovenere and the Cinque Terre. Pisa airport is an hour away, and the airports of Genova (Genoa in english) and Parma just a little further.
