The enchanting property Il Molino is an old Water Mill which was built at the end of the 17th century. The Mill is situated amongst the popular and wonderful Francigena Path built by the Ancient Romans during 800 AC, for the purpose of connecting North Europe from France to Rome (hence the name) Francigena Way. Nowadays this delightful touristic route goes through picturesque towns and small villages of rare beauty and particular architecture such as Filattiera, Villafranca, Terrarossa, Pontremoli and continues on in various directions till it finally surpasses the Alps and arrives in the Garfagnana region, deep inside the splendid Lunigiana region,
‘Il Molino’ is only 25km from the coast Portovenere, le cinque terre, Lerici, La Spezia, where it is possible to travel from La Spezia via sea using regular excursion boats to Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure or closer places like Palmaria Island.

The town is guarded and protected by the Bagnone Castle with its clock tower that at night lights up creating an enchanting scenery that perfectly accompanies the slow but relaxing pace of this village.
