Villa Linda Luni, Liguria - Italy
Sleeps 12 to 16
Luni, Liguria – Italy
Comfortably sleeping 12 to 16 people, this exclusive Noble Villa, set in a privileged position on the hillside of Luni prefecture, between Liguria and Tuscany – just a stones throw from the Cinque Terres fishing villages and nature reserve.
Built in 1700 as a mansion by Bernardini’s family, the property has remained unchanged in style and recently has been fully restored to provide guests with some extra comfort without disturbing the original plant and destination of the house. The frescoes on the vault of the living room as well as the chapel on the ground floor are original elements of the first plant of the villa. Here guests will feel like returning to the early eighteenth century by enjoying the conveniences of the present. For this reason there are no televisions in the bedrooms but only wi-fi connection.
On first floor the balcony affords superb views, which embrace the whole Magra’s valley to the shimmering waters of the Mediterranean sea. The beautiful large bedrooms offer totally privacy to the guests and every room affords wonderfully relaxing views of the garden and vast panorama in the background.
The villa is surrounded by a delightful park with vineyards, flowers and Mediterranean trees.

The area around Luni caters to many different tastes, offering a wealth of leisure-time pursuits for people of all ages. Watersports enthusiasts can swim, windsurf, sail and go sea-fishing in the Mediterranean, while sun-worshippers can bask idly on the unspoilt sandy beaches. The nearby inland Apuan Alps mountain range, which reaches as high as 1,750 metres above sea-level, provides extensive opportunities for leisurely walking, more strenuous hiking, serious climbing or carefree cycling in fantastic scenery.
