The region looks Mediterranean judging from the roof top colors, and numerous orchards, but planted at relatively low density. My guess would be Italy, and more specifically Sicily. The building indicated looks smaller than the surrounding modern looking houses. I presume that somebody of note died at this location rather than the location itself being important.

Beyond that I have not a clue.

I would rather guess for a location in southern France in context with an action of the french resistance...

Certainly possible and there is a french Mediterranean feel to it, but much more to choose from in Italy.

Ok. Italy is the country, but... North, South, East, West?

So perhaps a site along the Gustav Line or a headquarter used during the advance from Anzio towards Rome?

Close... but it isnĀ“t a HQ. Something heroic happened in this house in 1943.

Is that a question or your answer? If you google 'casa berardi' you'll get interesting results. Nowadays Berardi is actually a kind of guest house .

Ooooookkkk!!
Yes, Sterlin Castle.

Sterling Castle is the name given to a small house at San Leonardo where Lt Mitchell Sterlin and his men of 16 platoon, Royal Canadian Regiment, held out against German counter-attacks on 9th December 1943. One accounts recalls:

The road from the coastal highway to San Leonardo is signed today as Royal Canadian Avenue. In amongst a group of houses barely 500 metres from the battalion start line, there remains a building known to RCR veterans as Sterlin Castle. It was here that Lieutenant Mitchell Sterlin and 11 men of 16 Platoon, A Co., RCR, held off repeated attacks and then withdrew in good order when the enemy was spent.
