Il Portone
Vacation Rental Villa - Lunigiana, Tuscany, Italy

Il Portone is the perfect base from which to explore the delights of unspoilt Tuscany. The picturesque ports of Lerici and Portovenere, the Cinque Terre, Fosdinovo, Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Sienna and the Carrara marble mountains are all easily accessible. 

With tennis, swimming, fishing, sailing, mountain biking, horse riding, and walking, almost all activities are catered for. 

Dating back to the 17th century, this delightful old Manor House is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Turlago some ten minutes drive up through the vine and olive groves from the historic Malaspina town of Fivizzano.  A car is a must and a mobile phone is recommended.

Beautiful Holiday Home in Tuscany

Il Portone
Hilltop Village Scene
Il Portone provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to 8 guests in 4 double bedrooms. There is a large sitting room with TV and CD/radio  and wood burning stove.  Also a fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine and two bathrooms, each equipped with bath, shower, and w/c (one has a bidet).

With medieval origins, Turlago is a haven of peace and tranquillity. There are no shops, no bar and no swimming pools. Just a timeless serenity where sounds are gentle, no one hurries and village life carries on much as it has done for generations.

Il Portone offers seclusion but not isolation. Within 40 minutes you can be exploring the bustling towns of Aulla with a main line railway station, or Sarzana with its ancient market and quaint shops. 

The Autostrade at Aulla opens up the whole of northern Italy with Parma, Genoa, Bologna, Lucca, Pisa and Florence a comfortable journey away. 

Within an hour you could be relaxing on a safe sandy beach at Lerici or San Terenzo, or perhaps taking a boat trip along the Golf of Poets.
