Dimora alla Cascata is located in the Lunigiana region of Northern Tuscany. A magical unspoilt area free from tourist crowds where medieval castles and villages perch high above green wooded valleys. It offers the tourist a mild climate, a calm and soothing atmosphere in the hills criss-crossed by clear streams. The area caters for all offering museums, thermal waters, sport centres, skiing, fishing and trekking on horse back or by foot and is a haven for painters and photographers. Added to all of this is the folklore, traditions, the cuisine and local handicrafts and you have something for everyone and last but not least wonderful, friendly people.
