Castle in Enchanted April

We would love to stay at the castle featured in the wonderful and moving film Enchanted April, called San Salvatore in the book / film. Does anyone know if this is possible? The setting is sublime...

I haven't seen the film, but I know in the original novel is set in Liguria, not Tuscany.

Not a castle - just a house!! Well maybe a villa.

A bit of a google tells me that the film was filmed on location in Portofino and that Von Armin wrote the book there. Can't find any reference to the villa/castello being currently used for tourist accommodation though.

According to www.imdb.com, it's the Castello Brown above Portofino, but only the exteriors were shot there.

According to Wikipedia, Castello Brown is a house museum that charges admission; there is no accommodation there.
