- La Casa Padronale... An 800 Year Old Tuscan Farm-house in a Medieval VillageFirst to ReviewJan 09, 2014
Il Poggiolo a Codiponte... naturally, I am biased giving *****s to my own home but, it has been a labor of love since we happened upon the abandoned farm-house in 2009. Five years of re-construction from the foundations to the roofs and everything in between. We have sought to preserve the original arrangement of what is in fact three separate residences of Il Poggiolo... the Medici-style 18th Century palazzina of La Casetta at the entrance ramp, La Casa Grande & Esseccatoio... drying shed & oven... dominating the central courtyard of the farm complex and the original living quarters above of L'Appartamento Azzurro. Only the last two are currently available for vacation rental. All have been furnished in an eclectic mixture of period antiques, flea-market finds and contemporary artwork & furnishings. Outside, the half-acre garden has also been completely re-built and planted with olive & fruit trees and flowering bushes. There's even a fish pond! Our intention was to create a pleasant & comfortable refuge to enjoy the quiet of the village of Codiponte in the Lunigiana. Yet, as the bird flies, Il Poggiolo is near to many wonderful sites for sight-seeing excursions. The two most popular are, undoubtedly, the Cinque Terre and the walled city of Lucca. Come & see for yourself. We'd love to have you!Recommended for:
