    "A small nest in nature."

    07/23/2017

    We stayed here and my partner at the beginning of July and what we found has exceeded our expectations very much. We stayed in the apartment of Gelsomino, a small apartment perfect for a couple with everything you need to live in comfort. The decor struck us so much and we fell in love with the kitchen. Strong point of the house: FRESH !! There is an outdoor covered area with table and garden sofas to eat and spend quiet and cool the evenings. The pool is nice and clean with a nice view of the vineyards and hills of Casentino. We also had the chance to have a tasting at the farmhouse wine cellar and we discovered excellent wines born out of Marco's passion. Family friendly, welcoming and helpful environment. We recommend this stay for those who want to relax, enjoy the peace, immerse themselves in nature. Great for the four-legged friends who will be happy with the nature around them.

    We had very nice days in the Casa Giannino because Letizia and Marco are very welcoming hosts. The apartment is is acceptable, especially when it's hot, thick walls keep it nice cool. She is lovingly furnished and practical. If the apartment is occupied about it, you can hear the a bit of steps and the sound of the dishwasher. The environment is also very enchanting, Poppi and Arezzo of course, but also Pratomagno where you can very nice hike. And do not forget: the good wine. We will come back in the Casa Giannino, fingers crossed for the new vineyard and look forward to the new white wine.
