We have got great memories from that place. Beautiful, peaceful, decorated with excellent taste. This feeling when you wake up in the morning and you see this view! Sandro thank you for everything! People go there, visit Il Gufo, it is really amazing!

Sandro, our host, was very friendly and ensured that our stay met our expectations. In particular he provided free Wifi access and plenty of excellent walking suggestions. The hamper of food on arrival was very welcome and lasted us for... 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

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

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
