    I reached this castle walk to Beby a walk, the road is beautiful and green the castle was closed but is an area of peace and color with its garden full of color of the Iris. The visits take place on Sundays and public holidays. I stopped to read the history of the castle which is available in a booklet of free consultation at the gate. I will definitely be back with my wife!

    Beautiful place! Ideal for a walk in a day of good weather in order to admire the magnificent panorama. Unfortunately we could see the Castle from the outside as it closed to the public on weekdays. The small village adjacent to the castle with its restored stone houses is very suggestive, perfect to spend a quiet weekend.

    During my stay in casentino I visited outside the castle of Porciano. The visit I was suggested by hotel where I stayed, is a beautiful, well maintained private fortress unfortunately closed because it opens from May to October.

  • A wonderful place to stay. The cottage that we had was very cosy and we were made to feel very welcome. There are lovely walks in the area and the garden is beautiful and relaxing place to sit.
  • 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.
  • Not far from Stia, along the road that connects the Casentino with Mugello through the pass to Cross the Moors, to 610 m above sea level lies the castle of Porciano, famous for hosting the great poet Dante Alighieri. Porciano was, in all likelihood, the first castle that Tegrimo the elder, count of Modigliana, possessed in Casentino, as he had married Gisla, daughter of the Marquis Ubaldo, and by her had been brought as a dowry: here was one of the branches of the counts Guidi of Modigliana, the one of the counts Guidi of Porciano. $p 01 Observing this manor, not large, today it may seem impossible that in the middle ages its importance was significant to the point of being patronized by nobles, Knights and ambassadors: below the Castle lies the village that once had to be protected by a sturdy walls, too.
