Stone farmhouse with an apartment for 2/5 people in a small and quiet village at an altitude of 500 metres. In front of it we also have another flat for 2 people. This apartment is newly refurbished and charmingly furnished. It consists of living room with fireplace and sofa bed, well-equipped kitchen, one bedroom and bathroom with shower. Outside, garden and loggia are well-equipped with wood stove and barbecue for lovely outdoor dinners. Outside swimming pool deprived for the guests of our two flats. Casentino is located in the highest part of the River Arno's valley, a land of castles, Romanesque churches, Della Robbia's terracotta and loads of Dante's reminiscences. It is well known for artisan traditions of wrought iron, wood, stone and its peculiar woolen fabrics. Casentino is a real green oasis in Appennino Tosco-Romagnolo, a place in which men can, even to this day, live in harmony with nature. More

Interaction with guests
The pool is private for the exclusive use of the guests of the apartment. The outdoor areas (park, barbecue, etc. ..) are for the exclusive use of the guests of my two apartments. So they are possibly to be shared with another guest of the facility. The pool is instead private only for guests of the apartment.

We had a fortnight's family holiday here. The property is a very comfortable, beautifully restored farm building. Outside, there's a barbecue and eating area, and a nicely appointed swimming pool. The small town of Stia can be reached on foot in 10 minutes, or so (although the walk home up a steep hill probably takes a bit longer). There are some good restaurants in Stia, and a couple of festivals also took place there during our stay. Florence and Arezzo are about an hour's drive away, and Sienna can be reached in under two. Lorenzo, the owner of the property, is very helpful and accommodating. Our kids (11 and 14 at the time) thoroughly enjoyed themselves (although they'd have liked to have had some wifi access). Overall, though, this is a great holiday property in a wonderful location.

Apartment was well equipped, recently refurbished and clean, yet still had lots of character. Situated in a beautiful valley, with numerous scenic towns throughout, and a national park to the north (with some great roads too). Florence, Arezzo, Sienna, Lucca, Pisa, Livorno and many other great Tuscan cities are all within a reasonable distance, with the furthest being about a 2 hour drive away. Our hosts were great, very accommodating, and always came as soon as we had a problem. The only thing I would have changed was some internet access.
