Casa Terracotta is an ideal base for exploring the region if you are looking to purchase a new home in Italy. The area could be the perfect choice as it is relatively unknown to non-Italians and as such is cost effective, unspoilt and offers excellent value in a wide range of properties. Your English hosts, one of whom is fluent in Italian and the local dialect, have good local knowledge and can help with the bureaucratic processes of house buying or renovating your property.

The area is also renowned for its Porcini or Cep mushrooms and truffles: Masanti is on the La Strada del Fungo Porcino di Borgotaro. These delicious fungi are served in the many good restaurants in the area situated along the world famous Le strade dei vini e dei sapori.

The scenery in this area is stunning, with high peaks and passes, steep valleys, forests, tiny stone villages clinging to the sides of the hills, and exciting hair-pin-bend roads taking you from one amazing view to the next. The Ligurian border is just a 20 minute drive and Tuscany about 60 minutes away.
