L'Appartamento Azzurro... or, the Blue Apartment... is a charming residence in an 800 year old farm-house located in the Medieval village of Codiponte which is situated in northwestern corner of Tuscany called the Lunigiana. There is an open-space Living & Dining Area with a basic service Kitchen. Above is a Sleeping Loft with two single-beds reached by a ladder. Down a short corridor, to the right, is the Master Bedroom with a double-bed, and to the left, is the Bathroom with shower, etc. Beyond the MBR is the Terrace with lovely views of the village, the Aullela River valley and the olive & chestnut groves on the surrounding hills... a perfect spot for wine & cheese to watch sunsets on a summer evening. The apartment is decorated in an eclectic mix of period antiques, flea-market finds & contemporary artwork. Outside is a garden of grassy terraces planted with olive, fruit & flowering trees. There is even a fish pond! Chaises, chairs & tables are available to our guests.

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 are looking forward to having you stay with us!

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.
