La Casa Padronale is an 800 farm-house situated in the Medieval village of Codiponte in an area of northwest Tuscany called the Lunigiana. Recently renovated & modernized, the house is large and on two levels...

on the first floor, La Casa Grande, is the living quarters for the house. It is entered through a door at the Dining Loggia, a few short steps above the central courtyard of the farm-house. You are immediately in the high-ceiling with exposed beams Living Room with two single-beds/sofas for 2 persons. The Dining Room, again with high ceilings & exposed beams, is up a quick flight of steps through an archway from the LR. Then, there is the complete Kitchen which overlooks the courtyard and which has a door leading out to it, another as low pass-through to the Dining Loggia and yet another down to the Bathroom with shower and Laundry below.

the second floor, or, L'Appartamento Azzurro, is the original living quarters for Il Poggiolo, and is reached by taking a grassy ramp up from the courtyard to a separate entrance. Though a complete apartment in itself, this part of La Casa Padronale is the main Sleeping Quarters. The open-space Living & Dining areas has a simple service Kitchen. Above and reached by a ladder is the Sleeping Loft with two single beds for 2 persons. Down a short corridor and on the right is the Master Bedroom with a double bed for 2 persons and, on the left, is the Bathroom with shower, etc. A door in the MBR leads out onto a Terrace with lovely views over the village of Codiponte, the Aullela River valley and the olive & chestnut groves on the surrounding hills.

The entire house is decorated in an eclectic mix of period antiques, flea-market finds and contemporary art & furnishings.

Outside is a large garden of grass terraces planted with olive, fruit & flowering trees and there is even a fish pond! Chaises, chairs & tables and cushions are available to use either in the garden, on the terrace or, in the courtyard.

A little something about Codiponte & the Lunigiana...
Codiponte is the home to 150 year-round residents. The population swells in the summer months to over 300. The village supports two convenience stores for basic food & cleaning items, a bar... The Social Center of the community... a green-grocer, an excellent butcher shop, Macelleria da Massimo, and a few other shops for household & clothing items. Casola in Lunigiana, the next town above Codiponte, has a post-office, bank, the Carabinieri & similar food & retail shops. Gragnola, the next town below, has a grocery-store, bank, an assortment of shops like the other two towns and the train station for service to Aulla & Lucca. The nearest hospital is in Fivizzano, a 25 min. drive away.
 
The beauty of the Lunigiana is its convenient position on the Italian peninsula. The nearest beaches are a 40 minute drive away from Codiponte at Marinella. The resort town of Lerici on the Bay of the Poets is just as close. The Cinque Terre can be reached easily by train from Aulla or by ferry-boat from Porte Venere or La Spezia, about 45 minutes by car. Pisa and its airport, Parma & Lucca are all a little over an hour's drive away. Genoa & Florence are close enough for day-trips. The Apuane & Apennine Mountains are laced with stunning hiking & bike trails. And, for history buffs, there are over 120 castles & towers and innumerable Romanesque churches to visit & explore. The Lunigiana is also noted for its cucina locale... or, local cuisine, of sgabei, a fried bread served with salami e formaggi... panigacci, a rough flour crepe topped with various sauces from pesto, parmigiano & olive oil to a hearty meat sauce, the local pasta of testaroli and una tagliata of seared beef with rucola. And, as they say here... Buon appetito! 

We look forward to having you stay!

I am an America and I have lived in Italy for half of my 62 years. I first came to Italy to pursue a career as a fashion designer of women's ready-to-wear. I ended up designing a ton of shoes for both men & women. I divide my time between a residence in Genoa shared with my boy-friend & two Weimaraners and our country house, Il Poggiolo, in Codiponte. Now, I maintain several blogs, one devoted to Il Poggiolo has been running for over 5 years, and am working on a book.
