Elisa Baciocchi, Napoleon’s sister, liked to spend her summers in Bagni di Lucca, where the air was cooler and fresher than in Lucca.
She had the road from Lucca upgraded and built a house above La Villa in 1811.
It is still there and in quite good condition. I think it has been converted to apartments.
It is good to see one of the old buildings being looked after.
