VillAmorosa is a 19th century tuscan Villa standing in the shadow of the little famous tower also mentioned in Dante's Divine Comedy in the XXI Canto of the Inferno:

So I beheld once afraid the soldiers 
Who issued under safeguard from Caprona bargained,
se'tra seeing so many foes

The B&B is located in the center of the village of Caprona, close to the historic town of Calci and framed by the Monte Pisano (917 m), part of the tuscan mountain range of Apuan Alps, separating the provinces of Pisa and Lucca.
