2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Filattiera, Province of Massa Carrara, Tuscany
La Casa Felice is located on the edge of Lusignana, a pretty Tuscan mountain village near Pontremoli. It is a perfect place to enjoy expansive views, woodland walks and breathe in clear mountain air. Although the house is far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the motorway is no more then a 15 minutes drive where you can easily access the magnificent Ligurian coastline and experience Italian city living at Genoa, Pisa, Lucca and Parma (all under 1 hours drive). Florence is also accessible, being about a 2 hour drive from the house.

This is also our holiday home and we have recently refurbished the house to ensure that it is bright, attractive and comfortable. We have retained its historic charm, with some traditional furniture and furnishings, while adding all of the necessary modern conveniences.

On cooler evenings there is...

If you are looking to get away from it all but still only be 20 Minutes from a busy town this is for you. We had a fabulous week in our favourite part of Italy exploring places new and old visiting the coast exploring markets and climbing mountains . The house is exactly as described and has every home comfort with an excellent layout. The views from the living room across the valley are spectacular. A car is essential and the road to and from the house is not for the faint hearted. We would definitely stay again.

La Casa Felice is a lovely and peaceful newly renovated holiday getaway in the mountains, above a picturesque small town with lots of character. The house has all that is needed for a great holiday. Catherine supplied a House Book which contained a very comprehensive collection of all the useful things you need to help you get going (maps, recommendations for walks, recommendations for eating out etc)
Access to the sea or nearby cities is easy by car or, as we preferred, by train from the local towns. You then ALL get to see the countryside and do not have the stress of driving in Italian towns!
There are a couple of decent supermarkets not too far away that will supply everything you need, then you can barbeque it whilst gazing out over some beautiful mountain scenery from the patio, with a beer or glass of wine in hand. Bliss.
We all really enjoyed our stay at La Casa Felice, and have subsequently booked another week this year!
Highly recommended.

About the neighbourhood
Our village of Lusignana is situated within the Filattiera area, close to Pontremoli. Pontremoli is the largest town (approx. 15 minutes drive). It has a historic centre with markets on a Wednesday and Saturday morning and other year-round events, usually taking place in the main piazza. There is a tourist information centre in the centre of town as well as shops, cafes and restaurants.

La Spezia is the closest city (approx. 40 minutes drive) with a bustling centre with a large market, great shopping, bars and a restaurants. It is a naval port, with a museum dedicated to its naval history and it also has a marina and vibrant waterfront. Nautical events take place throughout the year.

The beaches at Lerici are roughly 40 minutes drive from the house. Pisa, Lucca, Genoa and Parma are about...
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Pisa or Genoa: 90.0 km
Railway: Pontremoli: 10.0 km
Pisa is the closest airport, taking about 1 hour to drive to the house. You need to hire a car and drive north to the E80 and then turn right towards Parma on the A15 and exit at Pontremoli. You can stop on the way at Lerici or one of the other coastal towns for lunch and a swim.

We also fly to Genoa, which is a quiter airport and mainly used by locals (rather then tourists). If you have time it is worth stopping of at Portofino, a beautiful seaside town. Drive south down the E80 and then join the A15 as before.

Note that you will have to pay a toll on the motorway, which is usually just under 9 euros from the airport.
