La Casatorre di Ponticello

Four boutique apartments with a private pool in a medieval tower-house in Lunigiana, Tuscany.

Imagine the peace and quiet of a luxuriant garden, and the relaxation of a comfortable private swimming pool, in a location between the sea and the mountains, not far from shops and restaurants, and a few kilometers from interesting places of art and culture . In this exclusive countryside, known to few, there is the Casatorre di Ponticello, a historic residence with a medieval tower, equipped with independent apartments, ideal for a holiday with your family.
The Casatorre di Ponticello offers you a dream vacation in its independent apartments overlooking the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine Park, and enjoying a magnificent view of the majestic Orsaro mountain, just 4 km from Pontremoli, and a short distance from important cities of art and the sparkling atmosphere of the Ligurian and Tuscan coast.

  • Where

The Casatorre di Ponticello is located on the edge of the Borgo di Ponticello, one of the oldest medieval villages of Lunigiana, an uncontaminated region of Tuscany still to be discovered. Among green hills of chestnut woods and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine mountains, in an informal and relaxing environment, far from places of mass tourism and rich in ancient traditions, the Casatorre di Ponticello is also well connected with the Tuscan coast (Forte dei Marmi) and the Cinque Terre.

  • Why

The apartment rental formula allows you to experience a stay in total autonomy and privacy. In addition, the large tree-lined garden, surrounded by tall hedges, offers the opportunity to relax on the sun loungers by the comfortable swimming pool with natural salt purification system and outdoor shower.

A few steps from the Casatorrre di Ponticello, the picturesque medieval village of Ponticello, with its narrow pedestrian streets and its characteristic stone buildings takes us back in time.

The Casatorre di Ponticello is an ideal and strategic place not only for those who like to visit important art cities such as Pisa, Lucca, Genoa or Parma, but also for those who want to discover less known but equally interesting places, such as Pontremoli, Sarzana, Filattiera, Filetto, Bagnone, Malgrate and Castagnetoli. In a short time you reach the natural park of the “Cinque Terre” and the enchanting towns of Lerici, Portovenere, Monterosso, Vernazza, Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Tellaro. The surroundings are full of paths and trails to be followed on foot or on horseback, to reach the silent woods and the peaks of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines or the Apuan Alps.

Pretty and well kept

The location is an excellent starting point for visiting northern Tuscany and by car it is easy to reach Pisa, the Cinque Terre, Genoa, Parma and (recommended) La Spezia. Try the local tavern where there are no menus, no English and you eat what is there. An experience not to be missed.

Beautiful Tuscan retreat

Had a wonderful stay in the Casatorre apartment. It is in a beautiful location, and was a perfect escape from the city. The apartment was very traditional and comfortable, the owners friendly, and Laura very helpful – it was great to be able to chat to them in English. I look forward to returning to stay here again!
