A peaceful hideway in rural Tuscany, Italy

My home was once a restaurant and so has lots of space. It is located in a tiny village with a 13th century borgo. It is within driving distance of many famous Tuscan locations such as Cinque de Terre, Portofino, Lucca, Parma and the Ligurian coast and beaches. The beaches are within a 30 mins drive and there are lovely mountain walks straight out of the apartment.
