    Additional Location Information
    The place is wonderful if you want a a romantic getaway to enjoy your free time in total relax, but it's also perfect if you're looking for a base for your excursions. In five minutes you can reach the train station of Aulla where you can catch trains that will allow you to comfortably visit the wonderful "Cinque Terre" (however, you can get there in forty-five minutes by car).
