Welcome to Lemons, a private home and traditional Tuscan stone villa built in the 1800’s which lay empty for many years until artist Erica Beard-Cavalli purchased and restored it in early 2012. The process of transforming it into a bed and breakfast was, like any similar project, at times challenging, but also full of joys such as bringing back to life the frescoes which adorn many of the rooms.
Lemons lies in the tiny village of Valdicastello Carducci, beneath the stunning Apuan Alps and the hamlet of Sant’Anna di Stazzema, approximately 5 minutes away from the artists’ town of Pietrasanta and less than 15 minutes from the sandy beaches of the Versilia coast.
With just five bedrooms, each decorated in individual style, a jacuzzi and sauna and a working artists’ studio, Lemons offers boutique accommodation that blends traditional with modern comforts. The result is a welcoming and elegant atmosphere that combines privacy and tranquillity with a sense of home.
Its tranquil setting, beautiful garden and proximity to wonderful hikes in the hills behind it makes Lemons an ideal base for exploring the area of northern Tuscany
