The Casa Dell' Angelo estate is a stunning rural property set in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains in Northern Tuscany. The house has breathtaking views, sits in splendid isolation, has a lovely private pool measuring 10 x 5 metres and can accommodate up to 12 people. It is decorated to the highest standards in the rustic traditions of the region. There is a delightful private chapel on the estate. A caretaker lives on the estate in a converted barn and is available to asset visitors with restaurant booking and advice on local amenities.
This private estate is a peaceful spot set amidst chestnut woods with views of surrounding vineyards and meadows. It offers peace and quiet, yet is situated only a few minutes drive away from the amenities and traditional shops of the historic town of Licciana Nardi and the quaint village restaurants and wonderful hillside walks that abound in the foothills of the Apennine mountains. The railway station at Aulla and the motorway that connects La Spezia on the coast to Parma in the north is only twenty minutes drive away. The famous Cinque Terra, the sea side resorts of Lerici and Porto Venere and the historic city of Lucca are all within easy reach.
There is outdoor furniture on the terrace, which is perfect for just relaxing enjoying the views or for al fresco dining. The cellars, known as canteena,have been converted into a bar area. The private swimming pool (10 x 5 metres) enjoys wonderful views over the typical Tuscan countryside and comes fully furnished with lounges and shaded areas.
The main building has spacious living areas with open beamed ceilings and 4 good sized bedrooms which sleep up to 8 people with 2 bathrooms and 1 shower room. The large kitchen/dining room of the main house is equipped with all the essentials, including American coffee machine, microwave and large refrigerator with freezer compartment. The spacious living room has an open fireplace for the cooler months and leads on to a roof terrace with beautiful views of the property's vineyards and the surrounding hills.
Character cantinas and shaded arches add Tuscan charm to the property. One of the cantinas has been made into an atmospheric, candle-lit bar area with exposed stone walls and vaulted ceilings.
