Il Gufo is in an amazing setting, surrounded by forest and hills with beautiful views from all aspects. The rustic feel to the accommodation works perfectly with the environment, nature is right on the doorstep. The beautiful swimming pool is very cleverly placed, away from the farmhouse just a short stroll away, with the sun shining until late evening, it... More

The appartment offers basic comfort for 4 but everything you need is available.(altough a bigger oven and coffee making facilities for 4 would be appreciated) It takes about 10 minutes on... More

We spent a magical week at Il Gufo Farmhouse. Incredibly relaxing with superb views of the surrounding countryside. Plenty to do, from exploring nearby hills on foot to day trips to cities such as Florence and Lucca. There's also a good sized swimming pool a few minutes walk from the house. The drive up from San Marcello takes a little... More

Great family vacation. We just returned from 7 days at ilguffo and had a fantastic time. The weather wasn't great at the start so the pool didn't get that much action but as a location it was fantastic. We used it to explore the small towns around San Marcello Pistoiese and go for some good walks. Sandro was great. Would... More

Highly recommended! Had a wonderful week there with my family in August this year. Sandro (the owner) was very helpful and welcoming. A fab hamper of essentials was waiting for us when we arrived - pasta, cheese, bread, fruit etc. The farmhouse is lovely.....quiet and comfortable with incredible views over the rolling, forest- covered hills and mountains. The best bit... More

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Il Gufo.

If you're looking for a slice of genuine rustic Italian countryside then this is a perfect getaway. Sandro the owner is lovely,... More
