We have decorated each of the rooms based on the characteristics of the original décor, particularly the wonderful frescoes that we have restored and the exposed beams. In converting the house, which had lain unused for many years, we of course needed to install new bathrooms to bring them up to date with 21st century standards. However, in doing so, we have tried to create a comfortable juxtaposition of modern facilities with the atmosphere of this beautiful old building.

Given Lemon’s proximity to the renowned artistic centre of Pietrasanta, and reflecting Erica’s background as an artist, we have named each of the rooms after artists.


Matisse is predominantly red and can be configured with one double bed. It has its own balcony where you can sit and read, sip something suitably refreshing or just enjoy the view of the garden.


Picasso has a double bed and is decorated in classic regency grey and white stripes, whilst its bathroom is painted in muted tones of sage green. It overlooks the hills behind the house.


Monet is decorated in a muted shade of purplish blue with lovely silver highlights. It consists of two singles or one double bed and overlooks the garden.


Chagall is a lovely blue room with wonderful frescoed walls. It has a double bed and boasts a view of the hills.


Degas is a charming double room, nestled under the roof. It is decorated in tones of white and includes a beautiful roll top bath.
