I have been hearing about this place for a while and have been dieing to get there and try it out for myself. Firstly the drive up there is spectacular - it's autumn and the leaves are all shades of red and orange, truly stunning. The restaurant is situated in a old church and occupies a position with incredible views. There is a big seated terrace and inside you can see the exposed stone walls. The restaurant is in 2 rooms and is cosy with a good atmosphere. We were welcomed with great friendly service and offered some mixed appetizers - delicious! They have a speciality of chestnut 'pancakes' served with ricotta, and the 'Talligata' was fantastically served in a sizzling clay plate. The homemade desserts were a selection of cakes which finished the meal perfectly. After the meal we were offered a map and recommended other places to visit in the area - a truly wonderful experience and the owners really care and are passionate about what they do. If you are in the area - or even fancy a detour - it's a must.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The agriturismo MONTAGNA VERDE is located in Apella di Licciana Nardi (province of Massa), Lunigiana region, in the north of Tuscany, surrounded by the centuries-old chestnut trees of the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park. The rooms are in an historic watchtower built in 1000 and renovated in 1995 by Mario Maffei. The attentive, painstaking renovation project led to the creation of colourful rooms (bedrooms, apartments, tasting room, honey workshop, restaurant) that combine the relaxed and characteristic atmosphere of historic buildings with the functionality and comfort of modern accommodation, to ensure guests experience all-round well-being.The tasting room and restaurant, with its zero-km menu (local product and slow food menu), are the ideal place to enjoy delicious, traditional Lunigiana cuisine . In the summer, guests can enjoy the pool-terrace (25 x 5 meters) with a view of the Apuan Alps, completely surrounded by the green landscape of the surrounding mountains. In autumn, the myriad of colours creates an impressive and memorable backdrop, and visitors can witness the metato in operation (every October this special wood oven is lit for the traditional drying of chestnuts), and breathes in the aroma of roasted chestnuts spreading through the village. The biopark and educational farm are perfect for those interested in finding out about the biodiversity of the area and to getting to know the farm’s animals, such as donkeys, sheep and cows, as well as the organic gardens where herbs for medicinal and culinary purposes are produced. ... more less
