A small light in the woods, a fairy tale and a nest. Our accommodation is nestled in a high forest visited by roe deer and lit by a thousand fireflies on summer nights.

The place is incredibly close to the historical center of Sarzana, easily reachable by walking.

The breakfasts, from the taste of the typical recipes of the place, are served in a nineteenth-century greenhouse accompanied by background music.

The accommodation
La Fustaia is a grove of holm oaks up to twenty-five meters high, with a wide and thick foliage, leathery leaves, oblong or ovate, whitish-tomentose below, dark greens above, these mature in the course of a year the acorns. The site is located at the foot of a hill that was "Tenuta di caccia dei Conti Lamotte"; its branches stand out in the sky high up, and protect a tidy undergrowth a garden for the animals that live here.

In the summer nights the place is studded with fireflies that in the absolute darkness with their magic take a look now here where the eye is captured.

Passing through a small stretch inside of this you get to the dwelling that will welcome you, a building to follow the terraced course of the land, built in raw lime, natural material used in the area and in particular in the ancient Tenuta di Marinella, which gives breath at home.

The movement of these walls, clear wavy, enhances shades of the same color and plays of shadows with a restful effect.

The reception is made in a completely frescoed room in dark green colors, where it is told that the Count kept his birds of call and where, a historical hunting scene deludes the gaze to an indefinite passage between the forest and the house; here you can make our friendship, so we like to think, here you will live your "good weather" and here you will find rubber boots that will take your steps up the hill edged by a dirt road that protects the boundary line and that the its height sees the Fortress of Sarzanello one of the masterpieces of military transition, a true jewel of Renaissance engineering and down to the mouth of the river Magra that creeps into the sea.

The continuation of the route is as indicated by a majestic hedge that changes its colors in a tangle of fruits sometimes red, yellow and sometimes intense blue tied like a necklace with a rose hip and a very strong wild broom. Everything else will be a daily fairy tale.

The almost velvety bright walls of the interior rooms protect the traveler in a silence attenuated by the sounds of the wood very close and recall to rest and reading, offered over time by a library in the living room, you can then enjoy scented sheets a waterfall of water for a regenerating shower or an ancient bath for the immersion in a complete relax, the blue gray wood boiserie completes the elegance of the environment.

Just adjacent to the house there is a long ship with an adjacent path where to walk barefoot, the pool converted to swimming pool will offer you the opportunity to swim surrounded by a majestic nature that is reflected in the water in a changing way driven by the wind.

It is March 31, 1353 and under the naves of the Cathedral of S. Maria, as bare and exhausted as those of the Gothic-Romanesque churches, it is a solemn ceremony, attended by hundreds of nobles, lords and knights. On the sides of the high altar are the Marquis Guglielmo Pallavicino, the procurator of the bishop Giovanni Visconti, head of the Ghibellines, and the Priori of the Florentine class, before them the agreements drawn up by a Perugian notary in which the political destiny of the castles between Po and Tiber and their Lords.

In fact, it is a historic moment for the armed armies of Guelphs and Ghibellines, the factions that have been fighting rivers of blood for two centuries, to stipulate the peace act.

And all this happens in Sarzana. One can imagine the iron noise of the blades of swords and spears broken against the pillars of the church as a sign of peace. You can see the bases of the church columns broken by those blows and outside the plaque on the vestibule and on the facade the sword buried like a meridian, in memory of that day.

Sarzana offers pleasant restaurants and trattorias and trendy shops. There are continuous cultural initiatives such as street books in May, competition for young opera singers "Spiros Argiris" and the choral festival "Suoni di primavera" in June, the Premio Montale Fuori di casa, the Acustic Guitar Village and the literary prize Città in Sarzana in August the Festival of Mind in September.

You can easily reach the sea at 9 km, by car by bike bus without taking the car back.

You can reach the historic center on foot in 20 minutes or by booking a shuttle bus just a few minutes away from the apartment.

The Sarzanese cuisine
the use of local extra-virgin olive oil is rooted in the gastronomic elaborations, its lightness distinguishes the puffs for the cakes of herbs or vegetables, for the characteristic pesto and exalts in a splendid way the pecularietà of the testaroli or for the panigacci of Podenzana cooked in small refractory material texts.

Among the pies the queen is the shoe, then we have the silly cake that means poor, the farinata, the salt cod fritters, the salt cod with milk, the sweet rice fritters.

The spungata whose name originates from the glaze of the superficial part of the envelope that contains every good of God in a voluptuous amalgam. That is apple jam, pear or chestnut pieces of caramelized fruit, almonds and pine nuts, sweet that will never fail in our breakfasts.

As for the wine we have the production of Vermentino D. O.C. since 1989 Colli di Luni.

Today, the vineyard is one of the most obvious constitutive aspects of the landscape in particular on the sunny slopes that overlook the sea, in June you can enjoy in the village of Castel Nuovo the "Benvenuto Vermentino" event where you can taste, with a glass in hand, the new productions along the historic streets of the place.
