Massa Carrara Region Vacation Rentals

Named after its two main towns, the region of Massa Carrara is enriched by its history and its location along the western coast of Italy. It is enhanced with the majestic backdrop of the Alpi Apuane mountains – where Michelangelo travelled to choose the marble for his works of art. Related to this history, tour the Cava Museo di Fantiscritti and the Museo Civico del Marmo. During August, there is an re-enactment of the ancient method of transporting blocks of marble downhill into the valley – the lizzatura.

Book your holiday accommodation in a privately-owned vacation rental for your stay in Tuscany. Hike or bike in the mountains. Carra – the city of marble – has its Romanesque-Gothic cathedral as its master piece. Visit the shops in the Palazoo delle Logge which was built in the 16th Century and completed in the 17th Century. Their entrances are protected by the long portico, the arches of which support the piazza del Praticino above. The museum of the Natural History of Man is located here. After a day of exploring, it is pleasure to be able to return to the accommodations you picked from the many vacation rentals available at ownerdirect.com. Privately-owned villa rentals, apartments, an agriturismo or a condo rental, can be found at Owner Direct Vacation Rentals. This websites offers you the conveniences of home within vacation rental accommodations set up for you and your family or friends.

Discover charming villages. Visit the enchanting medieval castle at Fosdinovo. The imposing Fortezza della Brunella is at Aulla. The ancient-walled Fivizzano is where the Disfida tra gli arcieri di terra e di corte – an archery challenge – occurs. Here you will find the print museum, Museo della Stampa. Rather than stay in a hotel, surround yourself in the heart of Tuscany and stay in privately-owned vacation rentals. Villas, often with swimming pools, or apartments within a villa rental are wonderful.

  • A Tuscan Medici-Style

    Codiponte: Country style house
    2 BDR • 1 BA • Sleeps 4 • #203699
    86 to 100 EUR/night
    Built in the late 1600s and was intended to be the Master's residence. As it often happens in Italy, death & inheritance divided the "palazzina" into two separate residences. The property occupies the top two floors, while below there is an artist's studio & gallery belonging to another property owner. From the front door there is a passageway leading up to the Courtyard, the heart of IL POGGIOLO, with a drying shed & oven and a grassy ramp leading up to the 2,000 square meters of terraced garden. There is even a fish pond. From the garden there are views of the Aulella River valley, the hills covered with olive & chestnut groves and the historic Church of Codiponte and its campanile. The Romanesque church was a once-upon-a-time way-station along the famous pilgrimage route, the via Francigena, connecting France to Rome. The village of Codiponte is situated in the part of the Lunigiana, practically at the feet of the Apuane Mountains, peaks revered by ancient peoples of the area and by the Romans. The area is still one of small stone borghi... Or, villages, many with their own castles, surrounded by unspoiled mountain country-side. Yet, Codiponte is only a 40 minute car drive to the Mediterranean Sea and the Italian Riviera, such as Le Cinque Terre. Parma, Pisa and its airport, Lucca & Genoa are an easy drive too. Come & enjoy!
