  • A special highlight: for the atmosphere, to what we breathe, what gives ... Postcard exterior, especially in late summer, with all the exterior covered in Virginia Creeper red by now; to film the Interior, restored to its former glory by skillful restorations. Surely to be inserted in a visit in Casentino: If you are lucky you will meet the owner, Martha, always willing to welcome visitors. Great location for photos of ceremonies. The vacation rentals around (also owned by Martha), set in the small village adjacent to the Castle, are perfect for a weekend of tranquility and beauty.

  • arrived in casentino, can't, forget to pay a visit to the castle of Porciano,, the tower houses a museum inside and can be visited, both in winter and in summer, logically visiting hours varies according to the season, but it's worth losing, an hour for those coming to stay, for saalire on in Porciano, where in addition to habitable Tower and the ruins , one can admire a splendid view over the Valley and a stroll in the village really delicious

  • The ambiance of this place is pure 'life-in-the-country' Renaissance and a wonderful place to stay for a few days to simply relax and enjoy the countryside. The castle has been lovingly cared for and ...  more »

  • Better than imagined. Beautifully appointed rooms with all the necessities to make your stay comfortable. Kitchens are very well stocked and even have your coffee. The castle grounds are lovely, peaceful and romantic. There is a variety of lodging available from staying the castle itself or to renting a cottage on the castle grounds. This is a small castle hamlet with a cute church that rings the bells every day. It is very affordable as is the nearby historic town of Stia. The owner, Martha Corsi, speaks English and is an amazing wonderful person who shares her family home and history. She also has an assistant who speaks English. Together they will guide you to all the great places to see around the valley and the best Italian food. This castle sits above the valley and has incredible sunsets to be enjoyed with local wine and cheese. The property is surrounded by flowers and singing birds. The hill side driving up to the castle one may encounter grazing goats with jubilant bells or a wild hedge hog crossing the road. This is not just a place to stay while sightseeing Tuscany, this is an experience that fills your soul with the joy of life. You will never want to leave which seems to be a theme. Our intended 2 day stay turned into a week. We hiked in a chestnut forest, filled our bottles of wine at the wine gas station after tastings, shopped at the ceramics factory and the wool factory museum, saw monasteries and churches galore and visited many other castles. We enjoyed the history of the area along with the rural beauty of a place where the stores still close at noon for the family meal. This is the real Italy meant to be experienced. Go alone or go with friends. Rent a car in Florence (just 1 hour and 1/2 away) I have traveled the world and this was my best vacation stay ever.
  • Beautiful historic castle that overlooks the town of stia. Great view over the Valley of stia and beautiful children's festivals too. Recommend a visit in autumn where everything is accentuated by colors of Ivy
