The vacation house is situated in Versilia, at an altitude of 250 meters on the hills around Camaiore, in the province of Lucca.
Numerous archaeological finds demonstrate that the area was already populated in prehistoric times, during the Copper and Bronze Ages. The region was then inhabited by the Etruscans, the Ligurians and the Romans. In the Middle Ages, the Via Francigena, the famous pilgrim road that connected northern Europe to Rome, passed through the territory of the present municipality of Camaiore. The village of Campmaior (or Campo Maggiore, hence the name Camaiore) was mentioned for the first time in a document dating from 984. Around 1226 Lucca conquered all the castles that had been built on the hills of Camaiore between the 11th and the 13th century, and in 1374 had the center of Camaiore encircled with walls that were destroyed during the 19th century.
