Luna the moon- is a borgo house set near the centre of a fashionable working village and medieval hill

town in Lunigiana, Northern Tuscany dating back to the 14C. Borgo refers to a medieval street of distinction; one can see

fine examples of Borgi across the length and breadth of Italy. In English we use the word taken from the French bourgiouse to

define an elevated lifestyle, in past centuries the Italian borgesi enjoyed the same distinction. This property faces onto

one of the finest example of an old borgo house in the area. Today, as in times past young children are escorted by anxious

mothers up and down the borgo in the shade of tall houses, old folk sit on steps reminiscing, the womenfolk make cheese and

roll pasta communally, the men return from the hills late morning to sample such labours, yes this is the unchanging

Italianate lifestyle to be observed and entered into the borgo 2003.

Ca d`La luna has been totally restored on ground

level to create a modern home but done in a style to maintain the feel of a borgo house. The rooms are not large but ample

for two persons. This level consists of a living room, two bedrooms and modern bathroom with shower unit. The kitchen faces a

walled terrazza with original flagstones. This is also used as an outside dining area. A feature of this upper terrace is a

large old bread oven now used for BBQ`s and pizza parties. From the kitchen and terrazza there are views over the village to

the hills beyond. The ever-present moon in lunigiana arc`s across the terrazza from where the house has gleaned its name.

There is an attractive lower terrace with high old stone walls which is part paved in stone and on an upper level a shingled

surface has been laid. This could be made into a kitchen garden for owner with more time available.

The old Cantina

one used for pigs or the odd cows has been tastefully converted into a Taverna retaining the heavy chestnut beams and cross

boards creating a wine cellar and separate dining area accessed from the borgo. This room has dining facilities for 10

persons. Adjacent to this converted cantina are two further large cantinas in their original state. A damp course and

concrete floor has been added, currently used as storage space this area would easily convert to useable living space and

could access the lower terrace at the rear of the property.
There is an upper level above the ground floor which has yet

to be restored but would convert into a further two bedrooms with a bathroom.

This property is to be found in the

village of Tavernelle in the Taverone valley at 412 metres above sea level. Tavernelle is a socially active village. There

are currently 350 inhabitants the current `brit` owners of Luna are the only foreigners to live in the village so this is no

expatriate community and therefore would suite those who wish to be immersed in the Italian culture.
Tavernelle is on the

ridge of the Parco dei Cento laghi the park of 100 lakes. This beautiful area is set in the Appennine Mountains which form

a dramatic backdrop to the village offers good walking on marked trails and winter skiing with lifts to the upper

slopes.
AMENITIES: There are two bars, post office, restaurant, general store, butchers shop and hardware in Tavernelle.

The coast with a choice of wide sandy beaches or the more sophisticated Ligurian coast a 40 min drive away. This stylish city

of Sarzana is close by. Pisa and Genoa airports offer budget Ryanair flights from UK Stansted for the price of a bottle of

wine if you are lucky!

If so idealic why sell. The owners are retreating to there cherished vineyard in the next

valley.
