Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.

The Casa is the heart of a farm-house in the Medieval & historic village of Codiponte in the Lunigiana. Originally an assorted collection of barns, stalls & living quarters, the Casa, after extensive renovations, remains a house with two distinct aspects.

The Ground Floor is entered through a door at the dining Loggia, has high-ceiling Living & Dining Rooms, a complete Kitchen and below, passing the huge wine making barrels called "tini", is the Laundry Room & Bathroom...

Whereas, the Sleeping Quarters, the original living quarters of the house... And now listed as Property 203716... Are on the First Floor. It's separate entrance is reached by a grassy ramp from the Courtyard. Here is an open-space Living/Dining Area with a basic service Kitchen and an enclosed fireplace. Above is a Sleeping Loft with two single-beds reached by a ladder. A short corridor leads to the Master Bedroom with an antique double-bed and the apartment's Bathroom. Off the bedroom is a Terrace with lovely views over the village of Codiponte and the olive & chestnut groves on the surrounding hills beyond.

There is a 2,000 square meter garden surrounding this charming farm-house with grassy terraces planted with fruit-trees, crepe myrtles and other flowering bushes and is available to guests to use & enjoy. There is even a fish pool.

The village of Codiponte has over 300 year-round inhabitants with two convenience stores for basic food & household items, a bar & tabaccheria... The social centre of the village... And other shops for clothing & household goods. Gragnola, the town below Codiponte, has a grocery-store, shops, post-office and the station for train service to Aulla & Lucca. Casola in Lunigiana, the town above, has a bank, shops and the Carabinieri station. The nearest hospital is in Fivizzano, a 20 minute drive away.

The Lunigiana is the region of Tuscany 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, stone villages... Many with their own castles, surrounded by unspoiled mountain scenery. Yet, Codiponte is only a 40 minute car drive to the nearest beaches on the Mediterranean Sea. The Cinque Terre is an easy train trip from Aulla. Parma, Pisa and its airport, and Lucca are a little over an hour away by car. Florence & Genoa are near enough for easy day trips too.

So, please come & enjoy!
