I fell in love with this 19th century house the first time i saw it. The ancient courtyard with an old laundry , a kitchen with a large fireplace and an original sink in marble. Here you have an incredible view over the village, the hills and the sea beyond.
I restored it with love keeping intact the original features: the decorated floors, the windows frames in chestnut wood, the ceiling in timber and terracotta bricks.
The classic architectural style of this area has been retained and I made it welcoming for the guests.
There are three bedrooms, each of which has an en-suit bathroom, a wardrobe, kettle and an air-dryer, independent heating, a fan and wifi connection.
In the lounge with fire place guests can relax reading a book from the small library, listen to music or watch a movie.
The “ colanzi” (rich breakfasts with both sweet and savoury food) offer a big range of jam, biscuits and cake baked by the owner of the house as well as Tuscan products like cheese, cured meat, bread and focaccia.
There is a lovely courtyard in front of the house with an old laundry and a terrazzato garden where guests can relax under the pergola of kiwi ad passion flower, enjoy the sun using the sun beds or benefit from the quiet of the chestnut wood while swinging on the hammocks.
The views from the house and the garden are fantastic: in front of you there are hills covered in woods and olive trees, the lovely village of Capezzano Monte and futher vistas of the sea and the coast from Livorno to Portovenere.
On clear days you can see the islands of Gorgona, Capraia and Elba and even as far as Corsica.
The beautiful and historic town of Pietrasanta is ten minutes away.
Pietrasanta is a very lively and you can find art shows, antique and hand craft markets, concerts and other cultural events that are organised all the year around.
The beach is very close too and if you love trekking many paths take you around the hills following the old donkey tracks surrounded by nature.
Le stipe is the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday of art, nature, relaxing and fun.
The bedrooms are cleaned every day and bed sheets and towels changed every three days.
Prices from € 90 double room with breakfast.
Private parking for guest.
On request it is possible to have dinner with typical local recipes and specialities, fruit, pudding and wine for 25-30 euros per person.
I wait for you and your pleasant stay at Le stipedisopra.
