Tuscany / Versilia / Stonehouse in village near to the sea of Versilia
Almost everyone knows the first hills of Versilia, but the second ones are just as beautiful and varied. Coming up from Camaiore via Montemagno - or from Viareggio via Pieve - you take a path up into the forest - a sign hangs there, Gualdo - the village of fairytales. At an altitude of about 320m above sea level lies this small hamlet of Gualdo, a medieval village structure where about 100 people still live today - in summer there are more. Almost all the houses (precious witnesses of the past) are made of stone. Small windows and balconies are lightened up with flowers - a walk through the streets is like a journey into the past.
Gualdo was a border area between the two great powers that fought over the territories behind Lake Massaciuccoli around the year 1000: the Montemagni, lords of Montemagno and allies of Pisa, and the powerful canons of San Martino from Lucca, owners of a possession that stretched from Massarosa to the river Freddana and of course allies of Lucca.
In the centre of Gualdo we sell a small holiday house, completely renovated and furnished. Just before it (right of passage over someone else's garden) there is a rustic barn with a shower room and barn for wood. Next to it is a seating area - just enough to put a barbecue and table and chairs or a lounger.
The house is a corner house on 3 levels, entrance - living area with fireplace, fully equipped kitchen. 1st floor - anteroom (office or single bedroom) large bathroom with tub. In the attic a double bedroom. Heating: air heat pump + fireplace.
Insulated wooden windows, terracotta floors.

From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces. Visitors to Tuscany come for many reasons. Many come in search of fine art, others to explore the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer vacationers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture. There is a lot to see and do in Tuscany, the difficulty is really where to start. Certainly most should start with Florence, then continue on to Siena and Pisa. The roll call of città di arte, cities of art, is daunting: Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and Lucca are all striking. The more you come to know the region, the more extraordinary Tuscany appears.
