The elegant building is in the heart of the village of Fivizzano, a stone's throw from Piazza Medicea and the large Carrara marble fountain built by Cosimo III.
The late 1800s building, in Art Nouveau style, has been completely restored. The three bedrooms are named after the three ancient entrances to the village: Porta Modenese, Porta Nuova and Porta Sarzanese.
Two bedrooms are on the first floor, one on the second one connected to a magnificent terrace. They offer all the comforts: private bathroom, shower with cervical waterfall, air conditioning, smart TV and internet connection throughout the hotel.
The three bedrooms are furnished keeping the period style; in the bathrooms the support bases were created in "cocciopesto", an ancient and natural technique that some local craftsmen have recovered.
