This villa is really some thing special perched on the top of a hill the views are endlessly breath taking. Wrap around balconies ensure that you can take full advantage of them whilst immersed in complete privacy and tranquility.
Villa Salvini is surrounded by a large private garden near the top of a hill overlooking the sea along the Tuscan-Liguria border. Although it is only 10 km (just over 6 miles) from the shore it is high enough into the foothills of the Apuan Alps to provide cool temperatures in summer beautiful colours in autumn and heavily-scented flowers in spring.
Just 300 meters (about 300 yards) down the road is the beautifully preserved medieval hamlet of Peralta whose cordial residents always extend a warm welcome to newcomers. Because it is slightly off the beaten track this area offers a wonderful opportunity to experience Italy as the Italians do not merely as a foreign holiday destination.
Inside Villa Salvini is furnished like an authentic Italian home with a mixture of comfortable contemporary pieces and pretty antiques. It is the owners personal holiday home. Downstairs there's a double living room with three sofas (one converts into a double bed) fireplace card table and satellite TV; as well as a modern eat-in kitchen with full stove refrigerator dishwasher and plenty of dishes and cookware.

Upstairs are a double bedroom a triple bedroom a bathroom with bathtub and a bathroom with shower. The house has central heating throughout.
Your family is bound to spend time enjoying the garden which has a table and chairs sun lounges an outdoor shower and a wood-burning oven that can be used for pizza or for barbecuing.
Despite its proximity to Peralta the property is totally secluded and private. Just down the road is the lovely hill town of Camaiore; Lucca (25 km or 15 miles) and Pisa (30 km or just over 18 miles) are only slightly farther. Day trips are easy to the five delightful fishing villages called Cinqueterre (65 km or nearly 40 miles).
If you're here in summer you'll surely want to experience a day at the beach and immerse your self in Italian beach culture which is very entertaining The ""bella figura"" along the board walk keeps us amused for hours. If designer sun glasses don't do it for you then any time of year is great to explore the almost entirely unknown hills of the Garfagnana right behind the villa and up into the hinter lands they are the only part of Tuscany that has escaped the attention of mass tourism and retained the authenticity of centuries past.
