This is a beautifully renovated farm in the Casentino valley with amazing views in all directions. Our cottage was spotlessly clean and well furnished. The owners could not have been more accommodating. It was an excellent home base to tour Central and Eastern Tuscany. Stayed with friends, recommended to friends and family.
