Tuscany / Massa / House with sea view in the hills of Massa-Carrara
The house was built about 30 years ago and has been slowly extended and finished. It is located above Massa (Massa-Carrara) and near the mountain village of Antona, where you can find a restaurant and small grocery shop. The house is alone and detached on a steep hill and offers a view of the mountains, surrounding olive groves and the Mediterranean Sea.
Access is via Massa high into the mountains, not the world for drivers used to Tuscany, if you have never driven up a mountain before you may be a little surprised by the bends and height. On the side of the road the property has its own gate, with a smaller and not too flat car (or 4 x 4) you come two curves lower, where you can also park. From here you go down about 60m of stone stairs. At the end of the stairs is a small stone house with a summer kitchen, next to it in the stone is a barbecue and a little further on another stone house which serves as a shed. From the street a cable lift leads to the house, which can be used to transport heavy things.
The garden is terraced with many trees and about 60 olive trees. The house has a large terrace.
Basement: Cellar with water source grotto.
Ground floor: Living-dining room with fireplace and kitchen.
1st floor: Master bedroom with private balcony, 2 smaller bedrooms also with exit to balcony with sea view.
Half an hour's drive from here there is a whole other world and nature - here is purest mountain air, on the couch you can see falcons and even eagles and some other inhabitants of the Apuan Alps. It is also several points colder here than in the valley, which is much appreciated, especially in summer. A little further along the road there is a small restaurant-hotel. The road continues into the Garfagnana, from there you can go to Lucca or Pisa, Florence.
Via two different roads you can reach Massa and the sea -in only 30 minutes.
To the house belong approx. 5000m2 land and 2 stone houses approx. 30 and 10m2.

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.
