Get off the tourist track and experience real rural Italy; stay in an inexpensive self-catering holiday home in the Localita of Masanti, a small un-spoilt mountain village, approximately 800 meters above sea level, with 24 friendly residents. The village nestles in the heart of the idyllic Apennine Mountains situated on the slopes of Monte Pelpi in the Ceno river valley. Masanti has beautiful views of the Ceno Valley, an abundance of wildlife, excellent walking, and has a famous source of natural fresh mineral water which is bottled by Norda in its plant nearby.
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.
Casa Terracotta, a small farmhouse built in the 1800’s, has recently been renovated to include modern amenities, it has a small garden with gazebo, table and chairs and exclusive off road parking adjacent to the property.
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, unspoiled 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.
