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. It's a great setting, beautiful mountain views and wild countryside, great big pool, peaceful, out of the way and amidst lots of local very untouristy villages. If you're looking for a slice of genuine rustic Italian countryside then this is a perfect getaway. Sandro the owner is lovely,... More

Lovely rustic accommodation with fantastic swimming pool, amazing views and immediate access to a range of spectacular walks - up mountain ridges, through beautiful forests and into delightful villages. A perfect place for an energetic family that prefers rural retreats to city breaks! Our holiday was also greatly enhanced by the charming owner/manager, Sandro, who was full of great advice... More

Rustic and romantic accommodation set in stunning scenery. Great weather makes the beautiful pool a real bonus. Incredible walking country - endless routes and possibilities. Friendly... More

The Good.. *Stunning views from the location and extremely romantic. The therapeutic hum of grasshoppers can be heard at night and the best view of the stars can be seen from the local Observatory. A tranquil and peaceful get-away. *The pool was amazing although very cold but perfect for the heat at 25 degrees+. *Great for adventure walks and exploring... More

It was back in 2003 that I fell in love with Tuscany as a result of staying at Il Gufo and have basically been going to Italy and mostly Tuscany every holiday since. Yes, the road up is steep but when you get there....fantastic! The rustic charm of the properties and their furnishings, the views of the surrounding mountain scenery... More

This was our 2nd stay at il gufo since last September. We had to come back and have recommended il gufo to our friends for its stunning views, tranquil mountainside location and great local walks. This area is relatively untouched by mass tourism, the food is amazing and the locals are welcoming. Il gufo is owned by Sandro, who cares... More

I originally went to Il Gufo in summer 1998 and loved it so much that I returned there the following summer and several other times during the year. My first impressions blew me away- the house is hidden in the mountain about San Marcello, with the most beautifully placed pool we'd ever seen- fabulous views over the valley. The apartments...

Visited Il Gufo Farmhouse summer 2011, stayed for two weeks- the last week of July and the first week of August. When we first arrived and started to drive up the never ending dirt track through the woods we thought to ourselves "what have we got ourselves into?". We didn't know what to expect. First impressions were fairly good however.... More
