The villa is in North Tuscany, close to La Spezia and Pontremoli, just over an hour from Pisa, Parma and Genova airports. Click here for a map of exactly where it is. Situated next to the ancient Medici castle which overlooks the picturesque medieval town of Bagnone, the villa is a 10 minute stroll down the hill to the town square and its shops, bars and restaurants. Although within easy reach of the centre of the town, the villa retains a sense of seclusion set in 3000 square metres of private land, bordered by a mountain stream at the bottom of the garden.
Just up into the hills from the Ligurianian coastline, the house is about 35 minutes from the beach, 55 minutes from the nearest ski resort. Close by there's the romantic walled city of Lucca, the five cliff top fishing villages of Cinque Terre, Portovenere, Portofino, and a host of medieval villages amongst the rolling hills of North Tuscany. Florence is around 2 hours drive from the villa.
